  • Weekly Recipe: Salmon Salad

    The one two punch of the flavor and texture in this recipe is just fantastic. The raspberry vinegar adds a whole other dimension to the salmon, and serving it cold (ish) really seems to bring out the crunchiness of the salad and keep the light and airy feeling.

    Guess what, Carleton? It’s still winter outside. Although it might be wearing on you, the winter is still a great time to get out and enjoy the Arb.

  • Cold Weather Cure: Mushroom and Stilton Galette

    Mushroom and Stilton Galette I particularly like this recipe as the porcini flavor really is allowed to take the driver’s seat, and paired with the creaminess of the filling, thanks in large degree to the stilton, it matches perfectly with a nice buttery, flakey crust.

    ArbNotes: Making Tracks in the Arb

    About a passionate kiss
    I had under an umbrella in the pouring rain

  • Carleton's Arb


    Over the past three-and-a-half years, I have grown quite fond of the Arboretum. In fact, I consider the Arb to be an invaluable piece of my Carleton experience. So, I thought I would take this opportunity to reflect broadly on the importance of the Arb.

  • ArbNotes: Farewell From a Senior

    In recent visits to our beautiful, crisp, November Arboretum, I find myself doing quite a bit of reflection. As a senior whose next two terms are pulling me away from the Arboretum towards other work-related pursuits, this is the last time I will be writing Arb notes.
