When it’s an extended outing with family and friends -- usually I cook for at least 10 -- I try to have lots of small bites ready; someone is always getting back from kayaking or a hike or inviting nearby campers to our site.

Seafood lovers can breathe a sigh of relief. The state has increased the number of Alaska fish species that are safe to eat every day, even by pregnant women and small children, based on expanded research.Kyle Hopkins
I usually make the run to Fairbanks with a cooler full of sandwiches and snacks. But now that I looked at it, I grew curious about restaurants along the way and decided that on my return trip I would eat at some of the places I’ve passed a hundred times but never eaten at.Mike Dunham

How do you eat them? I sighed like a schoolgirl with a crush before going into a long litany of how delicious these blossoms can be.Kim Sunée

While picking through squash blossoms to find the fattest blooms (easier to stuff), various people commented on how pretty they were, along with: Are those really edible? How do you eat them? I sighed like a schoolgirl with a crush before going into a long litany of how delicious these blossoms can be.
