“Video: Creamy Rice Pudding”

Since we were planning a big outdoor […]

“Braised Venison Tacos”

On Sunday I went to watch an Australian car race at the shiny new track in Austin, but that is for another day. Then I made Venison Tacos! They were tangy and full of crunchy colorful bits.   I highly recommend making a big batch of this and having a taco party. If you don’t have venison try bison, beef, wild boar, elk, pork or whatever you fancy. The idea […]
