Some of my favorite Alaskan recipes:

Most of these recipes are made with natural resources here in Alaska and are some of my favorite recipes I have learned to make since I've moved here.  The Peppermint White Chocolate Latte, however, has helped me get through the long winters . Hope you enjoy!

 Streusel-topped Blueberry Muffins:

Our favorite Autumn family activity is blueberry picking, and these muffins are delicious with wild Alaskan blueberries.
My kids LOVE these!

Smoked Salmon Mousse:

Why the fancy name? It’s rich, but the consistency is a little lighter than many spreads. It uses cream instead of mayonnaise, and a fair dose of lemon juice. Many salmon spreads suggest one part salmon to two parts cream cheese, resulting in a smoked salmon flavored cheese spread. That’s okay for folks down south spending a fortune on smoked salmon, but Alaskans can generally up the salmon content a bit. The preparation takes about ten minutes with a food processor, a little more with a blender.
