From Our correspondence

A friend of mine lent me your recipe book and I find myself reaching for it time and time again! You have good taste in foods and down to earth recipes.

Beryl Wagner

I purchased your Blueberries & Polar Bears cookbook this past spring and have used it for almost everything I’ve baked since then.

Edie Donald

We have been enjoying your cookbooks since 1995 and they are always a hit.

Susan Vollmer

Every recipe that I’ve tried so far works without any problems and tastes good. I started to go through the books and realized that on recipe after recipe I had written “excellent” or “very good”.

Dianne Frayne

I’ve wasted no time in using both your books and your DLS (Dymond Lake Seasoning) with great results.

Cheryl Wasylciw

You both deserve copious amounts of praise for your understanding and commitment to local foods and your skill in preparing them so well. Not only do your books contain excellent recipes, they are terrific to just sit down and read. Thank you for sharing your enthusiasm and love of northern life.

Anita Stewart

My husband operates a remote hunting camp in which I cook for his clients and I really appreciate the variety and down-to-earth recipes of Blueberries & Polar Bears.

Richard and Diane Deslauriers

Thank you so much for taking the time to compile such excellent cookbooks.

Mayvis G

I am especially pleased with the bread recipes. The stories and the wildlife recipes are superb! Keep up the good work.

Pam Pittman

I’ve made many of the recipes and they’ve all been great. And besides the good recipes, it’s a really neat little book. I have lots of cookbooks and its one of my favourites. I think your personal stories are what really add to it – so much fun to read.

I was asked by an outfitter in Kuujjuaq if I could help him out and cook for 16 caribou hunters at one of his camps for three days, as he was short a cook. I had never done this before but knew I enjoyed cooking and baking. Anyway, I packed my clothes and your cookbook and flew out in a Beaver to his camp. It was a great experience but I don’t know how you ladies do it for a full hunting season. I was exhausted at the end of three days but my baking from your book was a huge success with these hunters. Thanks for your book.

Donna Smith

I am cooking for 10 men on a construction barge on the Kuskekwim River at Bethel. The crew has loved every single recipe that I’ve tried so far from your book. Thank you for the wonderful recipes using ingredients that I can buy here.

Kaye Hamilton

Jacquie Smith “loaned” me your cookbook for your spinach salad recipe – my daughter and I were so impressed with your cookbook, we decided to order two for ourselves!
