Trash Can Turkey

Preface:  My enthusiasm was greatly deflated when, on a whim, I checked the internet on the off -chance that someone in the blogosphere had also had the mind-blowing experience of preparing a turkey without the use of electricity or a bbq pit. I discovered,… Continue Reading “Trash Can Turkey”

Happy Thanksgiving!

Last year, I didn’t get my Thanksgiving post finished in time for the holiday…which was a shame ‘cuz it was a real corker.  As I reread it, I still agree that I am blessed beyond measure, and my writing was inspired!  My apricot, pecan, and cornbread… Continue Reading “Happy Thanksgiving!”

Apricot Brandy Rubbish Muffins (or for the Hunters; Booze Muffins)

 This is the time of year when I’m just in between bird hunting season and deer season. The house has just been cleared of boots, feathers and coolers and is not yet stacked with the second round of coolers, rifles, and hunting boots.  We haven’t taken… Continue Reading “Apricot Brandy Rubbish Muffins (or for the Hunters; Booze Muffins)”

All Cooked Up and Nowhere to Go?

Last week, during an unexpected (and appreciated) cool spell,  I took advantage of the opportunity to cook up fifteen pounds of Nilgai rib meat, using my “Cook-All-Day” recipe.  From meat that many hunters would toss out, I produced five delicious meals, right off the… Continue Reading “All Cooked Up and Nowhere to Go?”

What’s Not to Love?

  When we’re in the throes of hunting season, all eyes seem to be on the more carnivorous endeavors.  With what will we fill our freezers?  That’s pretty much what’s on our minds and on the minds of my readers. Once the freezers are… Continue Reading “What’s Not to Love?”

More Snakes! Grab Those Fabulous Snake Boots!

Living with snakes is just part of life down here.  It was after finding the first and largest… Continue Reading “More Snakes! Grab Those Fabulous Snake Boots!”

Wild Game Jerky

Wild game jerky is awesome!  The Deerslayer clan loves it.  There are several types; whole muscle jerky, some that is made from extruded ground meat (pressed out, ribbon-like,  through an implement that looks like a caulk gun) and some that is pressed into casings… Continue Reading “Wild Game Jerky”

On Being the Deerslayer’s Mother

 (and preparing Pan-Fried Venison Heart) As I read a post recently, from Andy at Tremendous Whatnot, I was reminded of the Deerslayer tradition of preparing a celebratory dinner for the lucky hunter who triumphantly brought his/her bounty back to camp.  Photos are taken during… Continue Reading “On Being the Deerslayer’s Mother”

What Doesn’t Kill Us Makes Us Stronger (or Surviving Bees)

What started out as an eagerly anticipated road trip to our hunting camp ended up as something that would’ve made even Alfred Hitchcock shudder.  That’s the way things often roll for the Deerslayer clan. “What doesn’t kill us makes us stronger.” “God never gives… Continue Reading “What Doesn’t Kill Us Makes Us Stronger (or Surviving Bees)”

Never Enough Cookies*

 Oatmeal Cookies With Dark Chocolate, Pecans and Dried Cranberries Since the school year is beginning for my younger deerslayer, I find myself thinking of packed lunches, things to pack into an awesome lunch box (which is important), and of course, cookies.  Nothing says love like… Continue Reading “Never Enough Cookies*”
