Susan & I a Nooya Lake in the Misty Fjords
        southeast Ketchikan Alaska

Hello. I'm Marshall and that's me with my lovely wife Susan on a dream vacation to Alaska.  We're standing on the banks of Nooya Lake in the Misty Fjords National Monument northeast of Ketchikan, courtesy of Michelle at Island Wings. We're the Eschetes. I know. You've never seen a name like that and wouldn't even think of pronouncing it. Well it's Louisiana French. Acadian. That's Cajun to most people.

Most of the Eschetes live near Houma, Louisiana, but my father was in the military and we moved a lot.  I now live on Mon Louis Island at the extreme southern end of Alabama. It's a beautiful place with Mobile Bay to the east, the Gulf of Mexico to the south, and Fowl River to the west and north.  You've probably heard the famous Admiral David Farragut quote from the 1864 Civil War Battle of Mobile Bay, "Damn the torpedoes, full speed ahead"!  That battle took place at a spot just southeast of our bulkhead that you see below.  If the server is working properly this image is updated once a minute.

On to other things.

I'm no chef but I like to cook. Over the years I have collected quite a few recipes.  I’ve assembled some of them here. Mostly it is for us to find our favorite recipes, but you are more than welcome to see if anything strikes your fancy.  Check out the links to the below.
