“Squirrel Brunswick Stew with Acorns”

Young squirrel is good simply quartered and fried. Old squirrel is good stewed. When in doubt, it is safest to braise or stew a squirrel. Sometimes, for flavor and for whimsy, I like to add acorns to this recipe. Native Americans used to eat acorns, usually by grinding them and then boiling them. They are sometimes bitter because of their tannins, but this can be improved by grinding them and […]

“Fig Jam & Other Silliness”

I’ve decided that I might be insane. For example, I drove up to Dallas last night after attending a very important pumpkin carving party where I ate ribs and chicken legs like a cave woman. I couldn’t tell how fast I was going because for some reason the speedometer on my car changed to kilometers so basically I feel like a race car driver at all times now. 125 baby! […]

“Pickled Turnips”

I’m pickling a lot these days. That seems to be the way it goes with summer gardening. You hoe and weed and till and sow and water and worry and then it all comes pouring in at once, faster than you can eat it. When I have this problem, I pickle. Folks, get ready for a lot of pickling posts. It’s a sure path to colorful shelves. And besides, colorful […]

“Beurre Blanc”

Butter sauce, that is, in English speak. Butter is such a magical thing, don’t you think? I call it udder nectar. Sometimes. Only with people who know me well, like you for example. But I usually don’t call it that at a first encounter. You see, we get so caught up in recipes, but sometimes it can be simpler than that. Sometimes butter sauce is all you need to “enlighten” […]

“Gluten Free Strawberry Cupcakes & A Giveaway”

I got a wonderful gift in the mail yesterday that compelled me to host a giveaway because I want one of you to have it too. One of my favorite food bloggers, Elana Amsterdam, of Elana’s Pantry has a new book coming out this week called “Gluten-Free Cupcakes,” and it looks heavenly. I have talked about Elana’s food philosophy in the past when her last book hit the shelves, but I want to say it again…

“Duck Confit”

I spent all day yesterday recipe testing. My freezer had gotten unruly and I had declared that nothing else was allowed in it so that all of the game meat I had collected since September could have a proper home until I could test it all for the “Girl Hunter” book. That has been the rule, strictly enforced with a deer antler. But then I decided I wanted my freezer […]

“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 […]

“Sweet and Tangy Salad Dressing: The Feast”

Welcome to the final installment of my three part dinner series… After a full day of hunting on the ranch, and a full day of cooking by Paul, we finally got to eat the fruits of our labor.   The ranch has a very beautiful interior, with lovely wood paneling and a cozy lodge atmosphere. The fireplace was especially nice and there were many of them… one in almost every […]
