Ranch Tour: CF Ranch

This is a little tour of CF Ranch, the first of many ranch tours you’re going to see this Fall and Winter, as I gallivant and escapade (can that be a verb?) and roll around in the mud on all four corners of the earth. I feel that you should roll around in the mud too, at the very least via a photo gallery. Plus many of these places are […]

SHE Safari Givaway

Today, for all the wild women in the world, (or all the men who know wild women and like to give them presents), I’m giving away some rockin’ clothes from SHE Safari. As you know, I don’t know how to dress myself. Walking into my closet every morning is a source of stress. When I was young I only wore shoes until it became borderline inappropriate. See what I mean? […]

How to Clean a Dove

But first you have to shoot it. Just after sunrise. Preferably over a cotton field. Near sunflowers. Dead ones. Doves love dead sunflowers. I do too. I also love dead dove. It tastes like liver, the pudding of the gods. You can read about dead sunflowers in the last chapter of Food Heroes. I love them. More than alive ones. I don’t often watch the sun come up in the […]

The Night Before the Dove Hunt

One of the things I’ve liked most about this book tour, are the in between moments. The things I’ve done on the way to the book events. The night before the delta dove hunt is one of my favorite nights of the year. It is full of food, and laughter, and guitar blues, and whiskey, and food, and cigars, and food. It is full of ribs soaked in apple juice […]

Meet My Other New Friend

Remember that time when I brought my shotgun to Kennedy airport and got treated like the Pope? And then remember how Jet Blue decided not to put it on the plane? Well they did eventually and were very apologetic and gave me vouchers and here I am. With my new best friend. You’ve probably noticed that my friends tend to be inanimate objects. And they change often. Not to say […]

Where Shall I Hunt?

I’m about to embark on a hunting odyssey for my next book. Somehow I’m going to weave it in and out of my “Food Heroes” book tour this fall. Somehow. And that’s where YOU come in. I want to hear where you think the most exciting, interesting fulfilling, delicious hunts are. Ones you would love to read about. Ones you’ve heard about. Ones you’ve been on. Recipes you’d love to […]

How to Clean a Clam

Yes, they made it off the island. The little boat made two more trips and the last ones on the island were the ones who had the tallest boots… they had thigh boots. They took one for the team because they had thigh boots. When preparing your clams for dinner, it is best to let them soak in a bucket of water over night so that they “relax.” This will […]

How to Dig a Clam: Part 2

…also known as “How to dig a clam like a gentleman (or lady).” Alan had discovered that instead of getting yourself covered in mud, a little PCB pipe, and a double sided shovel kept one nice and mud-free. So we were the clean ones on the island. Alan drove his three person boat back and forth until we were all there. Then one of the girls tried her hand at […]

Clamming for Horsenecks: Part 1

Slowly but surely, I’m making friends on the west coast. It’s thrilling. This means that slowly but surely I will no longer be a hermit. I was invited to go clamming at Lawson’s Landing near Tamales Bay last week, and seeing as my life’s possessions are strewn between two coasts, this meant a trip to the hardware store late on a Sunday evening, where I got lost in the aisles […]

One of my favorite readers sent these to me and I had to share them with ya. Here are a few, you can see the whole gallery on the photos page. Check ’em out! I want to be her when […]
