Today […]

“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 it with a slew of pheasant legs that I brought back from my women’s Adventure […]

“Duck Fried Rice”

There are certain recipes that are so versatile, that they are a perfect place to incorporate your favorite meat, especially those extra scraps that you don’t know what to do with. One of my favorite such recipes is fried rice—full of bold flavor, spice and sweetness and a perfect base in which to incorporate duck, especially these wild ones that a friend of mine recently dropped into my freezer.

“Quince Jelly”

Do you know what a quince is? Have you ever tasted one? If you have, it was likely in a cooked form, quinces aren’t tasty raw. They are one of my favorite fruits. They become nice and pink when you cook them, a soothing glamorous pink. See these recipes to know what I mean. They start off green with a hint of yellow. Hard as a rock. And a strange fuzz […]

The best part is that this sauce can be used with so many different types of meat. Try a beef loin, pork […]

“Dove & Fig Kabobs”

Raise your hand if you’ve been dove hunting this fall. I have been and I’ve been eating lots ‘o dove. I think the doves know it because the other day I came home to put this recipe in the oven and I looked out my glass door onto the deck and a dove had run into it and was just laying there. What does it mean? That they’re trying to […]

“Barbecued Alligator”

I made you some alligator! I don’t cook alligator meat regularly, mostly because I don’t live in alligator country. But on a recent trip to Arkansas I was gifted a cooler full of alligator meat that was hunted locally by a farmer friend of mine (ie., the one who appears on the very first page of my book “Girl Hunter.” I luuuurve him.). Since we were planning a big outdoor […]
