Deerslayer’s Venison and Guinness Stew

I bought this awesome cast iron dutch oven with a lid. I’ve been wanting one for quite a while. With deer season in full swing, I was looking forward to trying it out. This recipe pretty much happened by accident. My junior deerslayers and… Continue Reading “Deerslayer’s Venison and Guinness Stew”

The Empty Freezer! Lentil Soup Time

I guess there comes a time in the life of every deerslayer’s wife when she wanders up to the freezer, the bastion of sustenance for her family and gazes upon the vast emptiness in dismay. The question of what to have for dinner is… Continue Reading “The Empty Freezer! Lentil Soup Time”

Goat Cheese, Just Because!

This past weekend, I trekked eight hours up to San Angelo, Texas with one goal in mind; to replenish my supply of goat cheese.  I could’ve just ordered some on the internet, but I’d heard that my “goat-cheese lady” had gotten some “new stuff”.… Continue Reading “Goat Cheese, Just Because!”

Opening Weekend… With Bacon

This is OPENING WEEKEND of deer season and, needless to say, we’ll be out at the hunting camp. It’s surprising how much I’m looking forward to it, the cooking, planning, packing, and the trip to the camp. My deerslayer seems like a different person… Continue Reading “Opening Weekend… With Bacon”

To Bean or Not To Bean

Cool weather is finally making its way to South Texas. It’s about freakin’ time. We’ll be bundling up and drinking hot chocolate in temperatures that we’re hoping will range from 78 to lows in the 50s. Brrrrrrr. Whenever it starts to get cold in… Continue Reading “To Bean or Not To Bean”

Then place the tenderloin in an oven-proof pan and cook at… Continue Reading “Seared Venison Tenderloin with Balsamic Glaze and Asparagus”

Venison Carne Guisada

Venison Meatloaf with Goat Cheese

There are few things that make the house smell as inviting as a venison meatloaf. Sure there are countless sweet things that are baked with cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, and don’t forget pumpkin. But when a deerslayer walks in the front door after a hard… Continue Reading “Venison Meatloaf with Goat Cheese”

Ahhhh! Autumn! Part 2

I love autumn so much that I figured it deserved a second entry and maybe a third and perhaps a fourth. I also felt that I didn’t clarify how my love of autumn, pumpkins, soup, and homemade bread meshed with being the wife of… Continue Reading “Ahhhh! Autumn! Part 2”

Ahhhh! Autumn!

I love autumn.  It’s always been my favorite time of year.  I love the colors of fall.  The oranges, browns, yellows.  In South Texas, temperatures dip below the century mark and the humidity drops as the winds begin to trickle in from the north.… Continue Reading “Ahhhh! Autumn!”
