I’m so excited to share the first of many cooking episodes here on this site. For a long time you’ve seen many posts here with step-by-step photos which take you through the recipes, but we’ve decided to spice things up around here and give some of the how-to’s in a video format for those of you who learn better this way. As always I’d love your feedback and questions in the comments section below. It is a work in progress, and like a fine venison back strap, it will get better with time.

Stay hungry my friends.

    They look delicious! But I know I’ll never get my wife to eat them. She won’t even eat lamb. I used to get my goat fix from an Indian place around the corner, when my wife was out without me.

    When I played the video all I can hear is music.

    I think the videos are a good idea. The length of this one was just right. The sound was just a bit on the tinny side but I could hear all your commentary just fine. Some acoustics tuning in the kitchen might make a difference for the sound quality.

    Your commentary was a good mix of how to and taste bud adjectives. Nice work.

    Take the meat off the fire while building your taco. I was distracted by looking at the meat continuing to cook in the pan. Otherwise good video.

    Please, please dump the music! If you can’t, then half the volume so we can hear you over it. Thank you!

    I wish you would do more videos. That looks great but I think I will use some venison, because it’s in the freezer.
