The first time I saw an orca whale was from the deck of a Washington state ferry while crossing from Mukilteo to Clinton on Whidbey Island. And it wasn’t just one orca — it was an entire pod. The captain stopped the engines to let the majestic animals through, and as the whales danced throug…

The first article I ever wrote for Yakima Magazine was in the September 2013 edition. I knew former Niche Products Manager, Robin Beckett through mutual friends. That summer we ran into each other at a barbecue. She loved the cookies I made for the party (you can find the recipe on yakimamag…

I don’t know about you, but I get pretty excited when a new restaurant opens. And I get doubly excited when it’s a new eatery downtown. After driving past the vacant location of the former Tony’s Steak House for the last few years, and after saying goodbye to Black Angus at the end of Februa…

My grandma was famous for her potato salad. It’s a simple recipe, but something about the way she made it was special. She had a giant vintage white bowl dedicated specifically for this salad and anytime my dad would walk through the back door of her house and see it sitting out on the count…

We all have bucket lists. A list of events, adventures and places we want to experience before we, well, kick the bucket. It would be fun to take a peek at other people’s lists. I bet we all have a few unique things on there that others don’t. One experience on my list is mushroom hunting.
