I'm from Alaska, a Tlingit (prounounced "klingit") native American and Norwegian. I love food! If I could live on the ocean, I would. Fishing is where I find peace. My name is Darrell but my nephew calls me "Uncle Dobo" and these days many family members do, too. Someday I hope my sisters will have RecipeZaar accounts, too, so they can share their recipes with all our family members more easily. :) I'm good friends with Julesong and her husband Steingrim, and they're great cooks. They cook a lot more "ethnic" food than I'm used to - I'm more a meat and potatoes kind of guy - but I'm coming to like some of the food styles they eat a lot. My nephew, Julesong, and myself are collecting native Alaskan recipes these days, so you'll soon be seeing some of them appear in my list. Julesong types them up for us (and maintains my Zaar account for me). The ingredients will probably be unusual for most Americans, but I think it's important to collect the information about our Native Alaskan American heritage and share it with others. My nephew Jared collected some of them from family members while visiting Anchorage.
