“Venison Curry Stew”

I brought a nice venison haunch back from my Girl Hunter Weekend in Arkansas. Ain’t it a beauty? It was aged for about 20 days. And since I was having a gathering of a large group of people I decided to put it to good use. I’ve made many stews before so I decided to think a little bit outside the box and made… Venison curry! You should make it […]

“Stuffed Pumpkin”

This is day 2 of my “Thanksgiving Revisited” series… a tad late but my airplane to New York didn’t have wifi, gasp, the outrage! I have a pumpkin fetish, I bought so many this year just to look at. And I like a good pumpkin dessert as much as the next girl. But I think we need more savory pumpkin dishes on the Thanksgiving dinner table. To show the pumpkin’s […]

“Cranberry Relish”

This week I’m doing a series of Thanksgiving recipes before I announce some big news next week. Get ready! I’m going to call this series “Thanksgiving Revisited: How to spice up your Thanksgiving dinner.” It includes a lot of the usual food themes but with a little twist or two. First off, is the wonderful irreplacable cranberry dish. Most people have a nice cranberry sauce. I have to admit, that […]

“Wild Turkey Swedish Meatballs”

Raise your hand if you’ve been turkey hunting this season! Or raise your hand if you like turkey! Because this recipe works perfectly with both domestic and wild birds. I know some of you have been telling me your turkey hunting stories via email. It’s a thrilling time, turkey hunting season is, it’s so uncertain and adrenaline pumping. And when you put all of that work into your dinner you […]

“Wild Duck Terrine”

This is one of the many food items I made out of the gizzards and hearts and liver and legs from my New Orleans duck hunt. It is called a terrine. A terrine is a piece of architecture which takes several days of work. There are many components that go into it and a bit of “pre-cooking” that needs to be done. I think the results are worth it. But […]

“How to Make Applesauce”

As you may recall, I went apple picking with an old college friend not too long ago. It was an attempt to re-live those cool, crisp New England days. But seeing as it was 104 degrees, and we were sweaty, I don’t think it was really a walk down memory lane. But we got apples. And I made a pie. And then I made this: Chunky Apple Sauce. You really […]

“Heirloom Apple Pie”

There’s an old gnarled apple tree hovering over the well at Tulipwood. My great-grandfather built the well and he probably planted the apple tree too. It is a very moody apple tree. Some years it is full of low and high hanging fruit and my brother and I shake it and throw sticks at the branches until we get the nicest rosy fruits on the top and the wormy bits […]

“Cheese Soufflé”

Say that 20 times fast. I made a soufflé. I was determined. I had a 102 degree fever and I made a souffle nonetheless. That should tell you how determined I was. So although this may seem like a strange journey with strange pictures taken by a semi-delirious girl, I can guarantee you will see a soufflé at the end. It all began with a golden onion. And a pink […]

“Gingerbread Castle Bundt Cake”

I have a mold. I don’t know where it came from. It just appeared one day. It’s always in the way, it doesn’t fit anywhere nicely. It was suggested at one point that we throw it out, but it wouldn’t go. So today I finally used it, in honor of our Christmas party this evening. I decided to do a gingerbread flavor, though any flavoring would work. Even Grandma P.’s […]
