    About Me

    • In the summer of 2009, my DH and I moved to McGrath, Alaska (on the Iditarod trail) to spend our first of many years there. We live a semi-primitive life, only electricity for appliances, no indoor plumbing and wood for heat.
    • We live in a small village of around 300 people. We are off the road system and everything is flown in. There are 2 stores here but they are small and what is sold is around 2 times what it costs to buy it elsewhere. Many people buy their groceries in other parts of the state and mail it back. Game meat (moose and bear) and fish are very popular. I work part time at the local post office. Most of our meals are soups, stews and one pot. DH cooks dinner about half the time.
    • I like to fish, pick berries, and of course cook. I like to volunteer to bake for the local school bake sales. I like to collect recipes for foods that I have a lot of and can easily get, hence fish, local berries and rhubarb are very popular items on my availability list. I don't have much of a knack for making up my own recipes, so this site has been wonderful as I used to stick to around a dozen different recipes. Before I got married, Top ramen and mac and cheese in a box were my usual foods. 
    • My life was different before I moved here. I had more time to cook, now I have very little free time and I cherish the little time I get to sit down.

    This life is not for every one, but it is simple and we are learning to live life and enjoy it. ( You don't move to Alaska for the weather)

    Favorite Foods

    I will try any food once. I tend to have an iron stomach and I like spicy foods. I have even eaten porcupine and red squirrel. I cook mostly from scratch and wish I could cook and eat more, but my figure would not be good then. I have lost almost 80 lbs learning how to eat smaller portions and low calorie.
    It's been fun trying new recipes and ingredients. Check out my tried and true cookbook for recipes that I like. I will be experimenting with shelf stable and dried foods to help with preparing meals because it is hard to get some foods, so I will let you know how they work with recipes over time.
