Elegant Pumpkin Soup… It’s Time!

Halloween is over and Thanksgiving is almost here.  I know I’m not the only person around who still has several decorative pumpkins artistically placed around my home and, yes, even at the hunting ranch.  I do this every year.  They represent my favorite time… Continue Reading “Elegant Pumpkin Soup… It’s Time!”

Dove Breast Crostini

I take pride in having more whitewing recipes than the average Doveslayer’s wife.  Every dove hunter loves dove breast with a slice of jalapeño and wrapped in bacon and tossed on the grill.  It’s the pretty much the gold standard.  Everybody loves it. When I… Continue Reading “Dove Breast Crostini”

Cool and Spicy Coleslaw

Recently, during our annual camping trip to Wyoming, I offered to make a side dish for one of the dinners for the 44 campers in our group.  I brought all the ingredients to make a coleslaw recipe that’s pretty popular in the Deerslayer household.… Continue Reading “Cool and Spicy Coleslaw”

Hash Browns for Camping! Genius!

I have to admit that my level of excitement over these hash browns that I just discovered bordered on embarrassing. One morning during our recent Deerslayer Clan camping trip, I walked down to the camp kitchen to the following sight.  A gorgeous mound of… Continue Reading “Hash Browns for Camping! Genius!”

Jalapeno/Wild Pork/Bacon Snacks

It’s time to gear up for the annual Deerslayer Camping Trip.  Every year the entire clan (three generations) converges upon southern Wyoming for two weeks. We’ve been doing it for years. In its heyday, there would be sixty-plus people coming and going during the… Continue Reading “Jalapeno/Wild Pork/Bacon Snacks”

Venison Pierogi

Delicious little pasta pillows filled with spiced meaty goodness.  It’s the best description I can think of for the Polish dish called pierogi.  Little Polish ravioli!  There are several traditional recipes that include fillings like saurkraut or potato/garlic.  Both are out of this world.  However,… Continue Reading “Venison Pierogi”

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!”

Stupidly Easy Venison and Veggie Soup (with Noodles)

Back when I was a young deerslayer’s wife, I honestly didn’t have a lot going for me from a culinary point of view. I hadn’t cooked much and had no experience at all with wild game. Luckily, I was younger, less affected by gravity, if… Continue Reading “Stupidly Easy Venison and Veggie Soup (with Noodles)”

Timely, no. Tasty, yes.

Roasting Fresh Pumpkin I’ll bet you didn’t know that pumpkins purchased in October to be used for autumn decor will last until past the end of February!  Don’t ask me how I know that. I’m a little embarrassed to admit that my family has… Continue Reading “Timely, no. Tasty, yes.”

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”
