Another Fantastic Household Tip

Is it cheaper to buy a whole new blender or just replace that busted blender jar? Until you figure that one out, you might try this: Many detachable blade assemblies screw right onto a mayo jar or a small-mouth Mason jar. Don’t fill it by more than half, though, and as with any regular blender, avoid very hot liquids.

Ceviche: yummy favorite of Shoot the Moon

I’m a fan of ceviche. Its light, fresh and yummy!

When I was on a photographer retreat we had a chef come and do an interactive demonstration on Raw foods and she made an amazing coconut ceviche where the young coconut tool the place of the fish. I prefer the fish, and wanted to share my favorite recipe!

Preparation time: 15 minutes to prepare, 3-4 hours to let sit. Always use the freshest fish possible. Make the same day you purchase fresh fish.


  • 2 lbs of firm, fresh red snapper fillets (or other firm-fleshed fish), cut into 1/2 inch pieces, completely deboned
  • 1/2 cup of fresh squeezed lime juice
  • 1/2 cup of fresh squeezed lemon juice
  • 1/2 red onion, finely diced
  • 1 cup of chopped fresh seeded tomatoes
  • 1 serrano chili, seeded and finely diced
  • 2 teaspoons of salt
  • Dash of ground oregano
  • Dash of Tabasco or a light pinch of cayenne pepper
  • Cilantro
  • Avocado
  • Tortillas or tortilla chips

During the marinating process the fish will change from pinkish grey and translucent, to whiter in color and opaque.

Serve with chopped cilantro and slices of avocado with heated tortillas for ceviche tacos or with tortilla chips.

Serves 4-8.

Twelve Pines Pizza-Eagle River

I recommend Twelve Pines pizza in Eagle River on Catfish Lake. We were there over Memorial Day weekend and the place was packed but well worth the wait. If you have kids, there is a little game area for them to try their luck in getting a little stuffed animal. What makes the pizza so tasty is the cheese, lots of it! I recommend the thin crust! The Bloody Marys are great also as they make it like a meal in itself, just ask for the garden salad in the drink! 🙂
