A little bit about Lisette.....

Born and raised in the Pacific Northwest I feel most alive surrounded by trees and breathing in the fresh mountain air.

When I am not working you will most likely find me spending time outdoors, volunteering with my church and exploring this beautiful planet with my family. 

This is my place to share my passion for life and to encourage you to take time to find the extraordinary in your life.

Summer nights

Our go to choice of meat around here is chicken, blame it on Costco, but those two packs of fresh chicken breasts are just hard to resist for an easy dinner. Throw on a sauce with a side of freshly steamed vegetables and you are well on your way to a satisfying meal. I decided to be adventurous last night and use a new ingredient to me- poblano peppers. I cooked it in the oven until its skin turned black and spotty and then peeled it off, cut out the seeds and put it in the blender with 1/2 cup cilantro, 1/2 cup olive oil, 1 garlic clove, 1 cup steamed and wilted spinach, and 1 tbsp dijon. What came from this concoction was this tasty, vibrant green sauce, I then poured atop the grilled chicken.
