I keep an old-fashioned recipe file and track the number of times I make it. Looking back at 2022 the following was my go-to meal being made 27 times as of writing this with one more sure to be enjoyed by year-end.

Delightful Baked Halibut (The Kitchen Community)
Preheat oven to 400 and heat a little olive oil in oven-proof skillet
Season with sea salt flakes and freshly ground black pepper (Maldon Seal Salt is preferred)
Place halibut in skillet at least an inch apart and sear while you top each with a pad of butter
Sprinkle halved green seedless grapes all around skillet and place in oven
While that bakes for 12-14 minutes, toast some slivered almonds or use right out of bag
Remove halibut from oven and immediately squeeze fresh lemon juice over all, top with almonds
Eat & Enjoy!

My favorite place to order fresh seafood from is: Wild Alaska Salmon & Seafood Company.

Outdoors International states that the largest halibut caught on record came in at 459 pounds.

Gilda aka Goose:
Sophia and I welcomed a new member to the family this year. Her name is Gilda but she’s silly so we call her Goose.

Big sister, Greta has been very sweet about not stepping on her and sharing her water bowl. Both of these beloved pets were rescued from local Fountain Hills organizations.


Everyone stayed healthy and Sophia continues as an honor student and is looking forward to ’23 and the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication.

Until next time,
