  1. This marinade is pretty good. I found it a bit on the heavy/salty side but DH loved it so therefore it gets 4 stars from us. I would make this again, thanks for sharing abloom69! Sorry I didn't get a photo, we dug into dinner before I thought of it. Made for Bargain Basement tag game.


I live about 20 minutes away from Vancouver, British Coumbia in the Historic Little Fishing City of Ladner, BC, this photo is just a view from one of the many little Islands that surround Vancouver Island and Vancouver. I am close to many Berry and Fruit Farms, Organic Farms and plentiful Seafood. I am currently a part-time Private Chef for a client in Vancouver , she keeps my job very interesting snd challenging. I am always looking for recipes to prepare for her. Most of the recipes I post have been successful with clients or family over the years however I am pretty lazy about entering them in my cookbook, but I am getting better. Also after being online for years I am utilizing Recipezaar as a means to organize all my online saved recipes and recipes yet to try. My other work days are working with my Dad in the Family Business which is in Transportation . It says passions, well, I guess I have a passion for the search, the pouring over of recipes in cookbooks and the internet, most of the time I don't end up making any of them but I just love to look.
