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.

Weekend roundup

This weekend was filled with delicious dining experiences, good friends, some city living and pre Valentine Day's festivities.

Saturday we ate our way through Ballard our first stop lunch at a Puerto Rican restaurant called La Isla. I loved the toothy hand painted coconut masks which covered the walls of the restaurant almost as much as their pulled pork empanadillas.

What would a pre Valentine celebration be without a little something sweet? How about a Chocolate Strawberry cupcake drizzled with chocolate ganache from Cupcake Royale.

For our pre Valentine celebration I had my salmon Oscar style at El Gaucho, accompanied with a wild mushroom risotto good enough to make anyone contemplate becoming a vegetarian. I cannot decide if all this good food inspires me to either take my cooking up a notch or just become totally lazy and eat out all the time.
