Caught from the fresh Pacific ocean in Alaska, my husband Tim is not only a
great fisherman, but a great "chef!"
Try Tim's "simple" grilled Alaskan Halibut recipe:
In a large plastic bag . . .
place 4 halibut filets ~ set aside
in a small bowl whisk . . .
2 tblsp Old Bay, 2 tblsp of olive oil, 1 tblsp lemon juice,
a good size pinch of sea salt &
freshly ground black pepper
(all seasonings to 'preference')
* add seasonings to bag with fish & give a few gentle shakes to
mix & coat fish thoroughly
refrigerate for at least 1 hour & take out about 15-20minutes
before placing on grill
Grill on low for at least 10minutes

Simple fish, Simply delicious!

"Springtime Tumblers" ~ set of two
The welcoming green hue, the charming sunflowers &
embossed detailing on our tumblers will take you back to
the simple summer life at grandma's,
sipping a cool glass of sun-kissed country ice tea! 

Try a few of our favorites this Summer . . .

"Iced Tea, Mango-style"
Pour 6 cups of boiling water over
5 tablespoon of loose Mango-infused tea leaves
*cover & steep for 4-7 minutes
Pour tea through a wire mesh strainer
Add agave nectar or simple syrup to taste
Pour tea over lots of ice
Garnish with a wedge of fresh mango

"Mint tea, Mojito-style"
Pour 4 cups of very hot water over 2 generous sprigs of mint leaves
*cover & let set for 3 to 5 minutes
Steep a pot of your favorite black tea & add a bit of the mint water
Stir 1/2 cup of rum, 1/2 cup of freshly squeezed limes
1/4 to 1/3 cup of agave nectar (or simple sugar syrup)
Pour tea evenly into ice-filled glasses
Garnish with a sprig of fresh mint & lime wedges

 * if you're old school like Hemingway, substitute agave for crushed sugarcanes

 ~ a "lavish" tip ~

~ keep those ice teas flavored just right, freeze the tea in a few ice trays & use in place of regular ice . . . cool & refreshing without diluting flavor!

ENJOY a refreshing Summer together!
