Wild Turkey Thanksgiving and the Zombie Apocalypse

Among those of us who have embraced the hunting lifestyle, there seem to be two different camps or schools of thought regarding how to bring to the table the meat that has been harvested.  There are those who rely solely on their tried-and-true, time-tested… Continue Reading “Wild Turkey Thanksgiving and the Zombie Apocalypse”

Hunters, This is a Game-Changer! Sous Vide Cooking for Wild Game

I’ve never thought of myself as a trend setter. Nor have I ever been one of those people who stands in line to be the first to own the newest gadget. More of a traditionalist, I’d say. I keep my phone until is seizes… Continue Reading “Hunters, This is a Game-Changer! Sous Vide Cooking for Wild Game”

Leftover Venison Shanks! Yay!

Hunters, Read This Before It’s Too Late!

TexMex Venison and/or Wild Pork Enchiladas

It’s really hot outside.  And, yet, it’s time to start preparing for deer season.  It’s time to fill feeders and fix feeder pens.  And check on the game cameras.  It’s time to clean out coolers.

Dove Ravioli in Browned Butter

Well, friends, I’ve really dropped the ball this time.  The opening of whitewing season has come and gone in South Texas and I didn’t post any acknowledgement whatsoever. Not a recipe, a “let’s get ready”, or a “good luck hunters”. Sometimes things get kinda… Continue Reading “Dove Ravioli in Browned Butter”

Cheaters’ Wild Pork Ribs

There are days when just getting out of bed seems like a major achievement.  As I stagger to the kitchen whimpering for a cup of coffee,  a pile of bills waits for me on the table.  I wade through waist-deep laundry to get to the… Continue Reading “Cheaters’ Wild Pork Ribs”

Spicy Marinara Venison Burgers

The other day, a wine-induced conversation ensued in the Deerslayer household regarding the best of all culinary goodness . Is pasta better than pizza?  Is seared venison tenderloin superior to chicken-fried venison steak? In our family, I have to admit that pasta, cheese, bread, and… Continue Reading “Spicy Marinara Venison Burgers”
