  1. Hi Lacey,

    I really enjoy your site, stories and recipes.
    I enjoy the cucumber and tomato salad. I kick it up a little and add a pinch of red pepper flakes.
    I live in Alaska and just went on a Halibut fishing trip. I am looking forward to trying yor Halibut Picatta.
    When I first signed up for your news letter/ free cookbook offer I entered my email address. Was it actually a cookbook or recipes with your newsletter?
    If you sent an actual collection of recipes/cookbook my husband deleated it as he did not recognize the “Sweet Pea” address. He knows better now.
    Could you resend the cookbook to me?

    Thank-you, Tara Watkins

    1. Hi Tara! First off, thanks for signing up to my newsletter! In addition to providing a link to my free downloadable cookbook for people who sign up for my newsletter, I send out a recurring newsletter with recipes not found on this blog. In each newsletter, there is a link to my free newsletter. If you’d prefer, however, I’d be happy to send you the link via email. P.S. I hope you enjoy the Halibut Picatta — it sounds amazing with fresh halibut!
