December 17th, 2016 by katyandcracker

Click HERE to watch Cracker’s adventure! (Not smart enough to link the image to youtube…) The special winter Chimacum soundtrack was generously arranged, sung, played and recorded by my super talented niece, Anna Vogelzang. Animation is something I’ve always wanted to try and this is a first quick attempt. Hope it brings a smile. Best wishes in 2017!

Looking For Betty MacDonald
December 17th, 2016 by katyandcracker

It’s been close to 90 years since Betty MacDonald’s brief stint as an egg farmer here in unsuspecting Chimacum. Young, pregnant, and poorly married, she gave it her valiant best, but didn’t last long before hightailing it back to Seattle.

July 1st, 2016 by katyandcracker

“It’s the brandy that makes it so good” claims Kristin. Here’s her tried and true recipe for Sangria (which I tested tonight just to make sure). She’s right. It is good — almost too easy to slurp down. Although the recipe calls for peaches and cherries, I used apricots and cherries plus threw in some Sylvan berries from WillowWind and some raspberries from Solstice.
