Baked Slammin’ Salmon

    Whew!  What a summer I’ve had.  Fabulously wonderful, traveling hither and yon, all the while collecting recipes to try and to share.  And yet, it kept me awfully busy.  So busy, in fact, that I neglected my duties posting those recipes.  I’ll briefly let you… Continue Reading “Baked Slammin’ Salmon”

Borscht, It’s Not Just For Russians Anymore

Borscht, a light, yet hearty soup originating in the Ukraine, seems strange and exotic to many of us. The color, a vibrant – almost electric – fuscia is the result of the beets in the recipe.

There were many single years that I bought into the hype… Continue Reading “Chocolate Milk with Blackberry Brandy and Whipped Cream”

Classic Wild Game Meat Pie

There are certain times when a savory meat pie hits the spot like nothing else. I have no doubt that Sherlock Holmes would eat a delicious meat pie.   Make it with wild game (venison, elk, nilgai, wild pork) and it can’t be beat.… Continue Reading “Classic Wild Game Meat Pie”

A Word about my Christmas Goose

Oh, by the way,…… I almost forgot to share my goose hunting experience.  The junior deerslayers and I decided that we wanted to “go Victorian” for Christmas this year.  Christmas goose was going to be the star of the show.  Figgy pudding would provide… Continue Reading “A Word about my Christmas Goose”
