Fresh Hand Cut Pasta

If I  had a son,   I would say “Son, if you are going to get the hot girls, you need to know how to make fresh pasta”.  I do not have a son, I have two daughters that LOVE PASTA.  They are spread…

Fried Chicken Sandwich with Slaw and Spicy Mayo

I got my new Bon appetite Magazine and it was all about making the perfect sandwich. I made a few little twist but kept to the recipe.  It was Sunday, so I got a day off from my diet and invited some friends over…

Tuna Tartare with roasted chili oil and hot peppers

I travel to the bay area of California a lot, and one of my favorite dishes that I look forward to is Michael Mina’s Tuna Tartare.  It is amazing, so after having it for my 545th time last week, I watched them prepare it…

Cioppino with EVERYTHING in it

On the way back from a successful steelhead fishing trip on the Umpqua River last week, Grover and I got to talking about food.  That is something we share in common, so for 3.5 hours we talked about the best dishes that we had…

Greek Gyro Wrap

A few months ago a good friend of mine, Ryan Nopp gave me a book for Christmas.  It is called “Great Sausage Recipes and Meat Curing” by Rytek Kutas.  It is an older book, but it is a piece of gold for those of…

Brined Pork Chops with Hard Cider Sauce and Trumpet Garlic Mushrooms

I love a great pork chop, when they are done perfectly.  I like my pork chops thick, not 1/2 thick slabs that Grandma used to fry until they were 190 degrees and hard as a rubber tire.  You could hardly swallow those old day…

Pheasant Enchiladas

One of my favorite things to do with my frozen pheasants is throw them in the crock pot add a half of onion, some garlic, salt, and pepper and slow cook them for 8 hours.  Then I take the meat and shred it while…

Stuffed Pork Chops

I am sorry it has been so long folks since my last blog.  I have been away from the computer for more than a month with my hectic fishing and hunting schedule. I apologize but should have some good stuff of my past adventures…

Beer Battered Coconut Shrimp

I had this craving for shrimp today and my wife Stephanie is not that fond of shrimp so I had to prove myself that I could make shrimp that she would like.  I have hundreds of cook books, and I got this little one…

Shrimp and Pork Pot Stickers

I am always looking for different way to cook wild game.  My oldest daughter had been bugging me about making pot stickers, so I waited until she left for the weekend and tried them.  They were great Megan, sorry you were not here to…

Jalapeno Poppers stuffed with Blue Cheese Salsa

I was recently accused by a good friend that the only thing I have been making lately is not healthy, except the halibut dish.  So I dedicate this one to Erin Storlie, who I am lucky to have as not only a friend, but…

Southern Buttermilk Biscuits

I have had this on the brain for a while, and finally I saw a recipe in Fine Cooking Magazine that my mother in law bought for me at the airport when she was visiting.  I actually had the copy, because…I am a subscriber…
