Marion’s Wall Calendars

Kodiak, Alaska is such an amazing place, it’s fun to share it with friends and family. That’s why I create this beautiful wall calendar every year. Filled with my recipes (see my smoked salmon pineapple dip below), photographs (bears and puffins, oh my), gardening tips (have you composted lately?), easy-to-understand photo tips, and upbeat holidays and celebrations (do you know when the toothpaste tube was invented?).

These calendars are printed in the USA and yes, you’ll want to hang in your home, office, cabin, or RV. It’s the best ever for bathroom reading material.

To buy the calendar, come to our Cliff House B&B, or visit my MarionOwenPhotography website.

Pineapple Smoke Salmon Dip

The sunny-citrus flavor of the pineapple complements the smoke salmon so well you’ll find excuses to serve this dip more often.

1 8-oz package cream cheese
1 pint (16 oz) sour cream
1 20-oz can crushed pineapple
2 cups smoked salmon
1/4 cup chopped chives
1 tsp horseradish
1 small can water chestnuts (adds crunch)
1/2 tsp Cajun-type seasoning

Drain the pineapple (save the juice for smoothies or muffins). Cream sour cream, cream cheese, water chestnuts, horseradish, and Cajun seasoning together in a food processor. Add the smoked salmon and pineapple. Pulse a few more times, but don’t over mix to a paste. Serving suggestions: crackers, chips, sliced radishes, celery and carrot sticks, and sliced apples. Great on toasted bagels and sandwiches.

    hello Marion, what a cool bear chilling out in a natural outdoor Jacuzzi ! 🙂 is the name of the calendar related to Kodiak island from Alaska?

      That is the very same, yes, Kodiak Island, Alaska. My home and favorite place to photograph. We operate gourmet dinner cruises and wildlife tours from our boat, and have a year-round B&B. The calendar is a compilation of photos, recipes, garden tips, photo tips and lots more. A work of love.

  2. We did a cruise up to Alaska but I don’t think I have been to Kodiak Island. Seems like a cool place.
