1. I am! Hopefully heading somewhere “woodsy” with my Bf – you headed to western mass earlier this year right? Any good inn suggestions? A nice big tub is key! 🙂

    • Somehow your comment was spammed…sorry! I actually wasn’t a big fan of the inn we stayed in while in Lenox. But, Nudel is an awesome little restaurant!!!

  2. Glad you liked ’em!

    You can totally eat those vertebrae though – they are nutritious and somewhat soft!

  3. Lady, I’m SO on the same page as you – I’ve heard of others using canned salmon, I just haven’t ever thought to try. Thanks for the heads-up about the bone chunks?! I mean, they’re definitely a part of eating fish, but I can SO see how that would be disconcerting.

    For Memorial Day weekend, we’ll be heading Up North to my parents’ cabin in Northern MN. I can’t wait to hear more about where you’re going!

    Could you post Kath’s salmon recipe here? I can no longer access her site from work (where i do the majority of my blog reading) because our firewall (or related computer term) filters her site as social networking and is blocked. boo hiss.

    • Maryland Salmon Cakes


      – 14 oz can wild salmon – 2 tbsp oat bran [or dry bread crumbs] – 1 tsp dried dill – 1/4 tsp kosher salt – 1/4 tsp Old Bay seasoning – 1 egg – 1.5 tbsp mayonnaise – 1/2 tsp dry mustard (or 1 tsp of the real stuff) – 1 dash hot sauce


      – Preheat LOW broiler. If your oven only has high, consider baking at 450* and then high broiling for last few minutes. – Mix dry ingredients through Old Bay – Mix wet ingredients through hot sauce. – Add salmon to dry, mix well. – Add wet to salmon mixture. – Form into 6 cakes. – Spray cookie sheet with canola oil mist and low broil for 20 minutes.

      We made a little aioli with mayo, mustard and smoked paprika to go on top.

  5. Hey!
    I’ve been reading your sister’s blog semi-religiously for months now and have read yours from time to time as well! My name is Jessie and I actually met Kath the last time she came to northern Virginia. I’m moving up to Boston this summer!! So maybe when I get there we can meet because I’m definitely into beer and food and basically all the other things you’re writing about. I’m job hunting like a crazy woman now but I plan to be up sometime between June and July! So maybe I will see ya up there!!


    • Hi!

      It’s so exciting that you’ll be moving to Boston! You’re going to love the food and beer scene here. Unfortunately, I’m moving in four weeks, so I’m not sure I’ll be around when you get here:( Good luck with the job hunt and let me know if you’re around before then!
