- 1 (2 to 3-pound) side salmon, skin on (preferably WIld Alaskan)
- 4 tablespoons stone-ground mustard
- 2 lemons
- 1 cup shelled pistachio nuts
- 1 clove garlic, minced
- 3 shallots, caramelized
- 1/2 cup Italian panko bread crumbs
- 4 tablespoons canola oil
- Salt and freshly ground black pepper
Preheat oven to 375 degrees
Place salmon on baking sheet, skin side on bottom. Mix the mustard, garlic, and lemon juice together and spread on top of the salmon.
Grind the pistachios and mix with the panko bread crumbs, oil, and salt and pepper, to taste. Cover the salmon evenly with the pistachio mixture and bake about 15 to 20 minutes. Top with the caramelized leeks. Yumm!!
Snapped these quick pics while getting the deck ready for Spring!
Made a Garlic, Rosemary, and Panko Tilapia tonight. Had a bib lettuce, tomato, and spiced/candied pecan salad on the side. Awesome!!
Yesterday, my boyfriend and I drove out to Hillsborough for a little day trip. In Eno Gallery, we ran across a little bird made from found objects by Jim and Tori Mullan. Love it!
Tonight I made a shrimp and cheese omelette followed by banana bread for desert!
I stopped by Skynear Designs Gallery today and see that they carry some of Romero Britto’s work. I love his artwork. He combines influences from cubism with pop, to create a vibrant, iconic style that The New York Times describes, “exudes warmth, optimism and love.”

I’m in the process of killing two of my old blogs and merging everything over to this photography blog, fixing links, etc. Once the content is migrated, I’ll then redesign the theme. Please excuse the somewhat jumbled nature of this site for now.
I know I have about 20 visitors a day, and the only people who care will be those looking for a photographer. For you, do know that I’m still available to photograph your event (-:
Whoa! saw this on the Todays Whisper Blog. Look at those goats climb! Well, actually, they aren’t really goats. According to Wikipedia, the mountain goat is an even-toed ungulate of the order Artiodactyla and the family Bovidae that includes antelopes, gazelles, and cattle. All that makes perfect sense, right?
Spending their lives in the mountains climbing, mountain goats reach this incredible virtuosity, excelling in this mastery of climbing that many other animals seem more suited for this purpose. Makes me wonder what I’m capable of if I condition and train more!
Oftentimes we run around in life just going through the motions. Recently, I’ve been doing things that make me slow down and be mindful.
Over the past week or so, I’ve walked around Falls Church and snapped a series of closeups and details from spots in the city. What a way to be in the moment and smell the roses, so to speak. I took over 50 photos. Below are three. If you are familiar with the area, see how many you can identify on my Flickr page:
