Praline-Glazed Salmon (Recipe in honor of Salmon Season opening finally! Nov.16th)


12 ounces boned, skinned salmon fillet, cut into 2 pieces

About 1/4 teaspoon salt


1/4 cup chopped pecans

3 tablespoons packed dark brown sugar

2 tablespoons butter, melted

1 teaspoon lemon juice


1. Rinse salmon and pat dry. Sprinkle all over with salt and pepper. In a small bowl, mix pecans, brown sugar, butter, lemon juice, and 1/4 teaspoon salt.

2. Place salmon on a 12- by 15-inch baking sheet. Broil 6 inches from heat for 6 minutes. With a wide spatula, turn fish over. Spoon pecan mixture evenly over fish and broil again, checking frequently to be sure nuts do not scorch, until fish is opaque but still moist- looking in the center of the thickest part (cut to test), 1 to 2 minutes longer.

3. With a wide spatula, transfer fish to serving plate.

My attempts at some tiny realistic dolls...

Looking ahead, new dolls and ideas...

Been busy working on some new items to present to Ashton Drake...Whoopee! Have a doll listed in the upcoming Holiday Gallery pages of Martha Puff, in Miniature Dollhouse magazine US version. I am having a difficult time deciding which way to go with my sculpting these days, I am receiving alot of positive feedback on my dollhouse work, but the fairies were my first love... so I will see where I end up with that. I really love the realistic work of artists like Laura Scattolini, Heloise, Julie Fischer, and my all time fav Jamie Williamson. I have often thought wow what if I could create that type of doll with a realistic and charming quality to them in Miniature they would be so sweet! So I will continue to work hard on my detailing and costuming and hope they are well loved.
