“Video: Brown Rice Cornbread”


I’m very excited to tell you about my partnership with Riceland Foods, a farmer owned co-op based in Arkansas that distributes rice around the world. Not only do they donate rice for hunger relief around the world, but the farmers also produce a nutritious, economical, gluten free and delicious product that is probably already in your pantry and at the very least in a grocery store near you.

Today I am posting the first in an ongoing series of cooking videos we’re working on together. I think you’re going to love them and can’t wait to hear your feedback and learn how you like the recipes!

A little while ago, one of my interns said, “Hey! How about you answer our interview questions, things that people don’t ask you in interviews but things that we’re curious about.” I thought that was rather clever and so I gave them all a license to ask me anything under the sun that they wanted …

“Wild Game for Picky Eaters”

Bison pizza

Some people are surprised by the amount and variety of wild game in my diet. Boar, duck, quail, and, especially, squirrel, aren’t the most common proteins on peoples’ plates, but I’m out to change that! Most of the people I cook for are pretty adventurous eaters, luckily for me. Not every cook is so blessed. …

“Pheasant Confit”


To “confit” something, is to cure it in salt and then cook it slowly in fat. It makes the meat buttery and fall off the bone. Is there anything that sounds more glorious than that? It is common to see it done with duck legs, and other muscular cuts of meat, but here I’ve done …

“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 …
