Blog Love: Alaska Bites

I love reading local bloggers – it’s so interesting to peek into someone else’s version of Anchorage.  One of the blogs I really enjoy is Alaska Bites by Rebecca Palsha of KTUU Channel 2.

Her posts are straightforward and simple, and never fail to make me hungry.  Not only that, I find her writing Hemingway-esque (one of my favorite authors):


“I drank a bottle of wine for company. It was Chateau Margaux. It was pleasant to be drinking slowly and to be tasting the wine and to be drinking alone. A bottle of wine was good company.” From The Sun Also Rises, 1926


“I bit into the hot dog, that moments ago had been sitting on a fiery grill. The hot dog was overloaded with layers of crisp sauerkraut, cheese and onions sautéed in Coca-Cola. I licked the spicy mustard from my lips. It only took a few minutes to finish eating, but I as I sat there I couldn’t help but wished this moment, and summer, would last a little longer.” From Alaska Bites, Slowing Down… For a Moment, 2011

See what I mean?

It’s 10:38 PM on a Monday, and I have the strangest craving for wine and a hot dog. Anyone know what kind of wine goes with reindeer dogs?

I love Anchorage. I love what it is, what it's been, and what I dream it will be. I share my adventures with DJ (my husband), my fabulous family and friends, two frenchies named Grover and Teddy, and now, all of you. If you love Anchorage too, get in touch - guest posts are welcome!

  1. A Facebook friend suggested champagne, which is somehow very appealing! Will do research on this very important topic and report back…
