“One Pot Pheasant Stew”

This is a recipe that I made last week while cleaning out some of the extra game meat in my freezer and I just loved it. I had several whole pheasants left over from my Adventure Getaway in Virginia this past December and I decided given this never-ending winter, it was high time to make the most of it, and turn them into a warm and hearty dish. You’re going […]

“Poached Loquats in Herb Semi-Syrup”

It all began when I was watching the squirrels. This is what I do sometimes when I sit in a wicker chair with my breakfast and ponder life and the creek below. The squirrels were gnawing most voraciously on a yellow fruit, many of which had dropped to the ground. I was curious. So I wandered my way over and this is what I saw, dangling from the trees that […]

“Homemade Gift: Preserved Salmon in a Jar”

I got a little makeover around here! We’re still working out a few kinks but there are a few new features that I want to point out now so you can start using them! My recipes page now has a visual recipe index as well as a way for you to search for recipes by ingredient. There are also many categories that you can search for visually. I’m a visual […]

“Skillet Stuffing”

It’s Day 3 of Thanksgiving Revisited! We’re moving right along here. If you’ve been reading this blog for a while you know that I am not a fan of doing dirty dishes. I love spreading out in the kitchen and making a beautiful mess. But I have a hard time facing a big stack in the sink. That is why I love skillets and why I love this stuffing… all […]

“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 […]

“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 Peppers”

These are the peppers from my garden this year. You can call me Peter Piper. Thank you. The truth is, that they were planted by my brother’s mischievous friend Francesco. But Francesco dropped off the radar screen sometime in mid-summer when the weeds became unruly and it was time to separate the men from the boys and weed well into the evening. I think I still have a sunburn from […]

“Devil Doves”

I’m writing to you from an airplane, 30,000 feet in the sky. Isn’t technology amazing? {{{wave}}} I’m on my way to Portland, Oregon for a weekend of foraging in the woods, good eating, and general merriment. I’ll be sure to tell you what I uncover. In the meantime, we need to talk about doves some more, particularly this new dove recipe I conjured up while in Arkansas a few days […]

“Wild Garlic Soup”

Quick! Take to the front yard. Or the back yard if you prefer. It’s wild garlic season, and in another month it will be much too hard to pull up. They look vaguely like a bunch of chives, though decidedly more hearty. There’s something woody looking about them at the base. They will smell faintly like garlic if you get your nose very close. Pull them up, at least a […]

“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” […]
