According to SCDNR, now that we are having warmer weather in SC, black bears are becoming more active. During this time bears are looking for easy food left around.

So far, there have been five different bear sightings here at the cabin. Plus, many more sightings in the woods behind our home.

Mediterranean Baked Salmon

Mediterranean Baked Salmon. (c) The Comfy Cabin, 2023.

Mediterranean baked salmon is an easy and healthy recipe to make. It is tender, moist, and packed with many delicious flavors. Serve it with white rice, salad, or your favorite side dish. I love serving my salmon with white rice and black beans.

Add the capers and sprinkle more olive oil. Add 3 tablespoons of red wine vinegar. Bake in the oven for 25 minutes. Thicker cuts of salmon may require 30 minutes. Optional: Top salmon with 1 tablespoon of blue cheese and serve immediately.

Black Bear Visiting The Cabin In South Carolina

Hello Friends,

It’s been super busy here! I have been working on a new recipe, Mediterranean Salmon which I will post soon. In the meantime, I had a black bear visit the cabin in the late morning. According to the South Carolina DNC, black bears are more active in the month of May here in the Carolina woods.

Read more here about black bears in South Carolina.

Plus, the squirrels are not shy to peek into the windows to say, ‘hello.’

Enjoy the videos!

Lots of Love,

Debra Roinestad
