Macaroni and Cheese Bomb Diggety

I have made this dish so many different ways and so many times that my efforts have definitely taken years off my life.  I guess I would rather live fast, hard, and happy then long, dull, and….skinny.  I made this one for some friends…

Martinis and Meatloaf

When I was growing up, I hated meatloaf.  Just the thought of it made me run the other direction.  When I am at a really nice restaurant I usually cruise over the menu and say “Bring me what your famous for”.  I believe it is…

Sturgeon Fish Tacos with Green Sauce

One of my favorite things my family loves to eat is our famous fish tacos, and our favorite fish to eat in those tacos is the beloved Sturgeon.  It is, for the lack of another terminology, the Bomb!  So when my sister called and…

2012 Valentines Dinner-This is why my wife lets me go hunting

For all of you outdoorsmen out there, pay attention to what I am going to tell you.  The reason my wife allows me to do the things I do, is not because of how handsome I am, or my “Mr. Wonderful” personality, nor my…

Marinaded Elk Sirloin Stir Fry

The other day I pulled what I thought to be elk hamburger out of the freezer, when I got home that evening I grabbed the now thawed hamburger.  To my surprise, it was not elk hamburger but elk sirloin.  This threw me for a…

Empanadas the Argentinian Way

I read about them like they were little morsels that only the elders spoke of in small pockets of South American communities in California.  They always spoke of them like they were magical but when I questioned them about making them or the recipes they…

Seared and Seasoned Duck Breast

Duck is one of my favorite dishes to order at a restaurant, probably because I shy away from cooking it most of the time.  Waterfowl season is in full swing and most hunters I know in Oregon save the meat to put in pepperoni,…

Burnt Tomato, Goat Cheese, and Anchovy Bruschetta

One of my favorite cook books of all times is called Seven Fires by Francis Mallmann.  I bought it because we will be spending some time down in Patagonia this year on two separate trips and I am excited about the food!  Look at me,…

How to Can Fish in a Pressure Cooker

Here is the step by step instructions for canning salmon or tuna.  I do both and trust me once you can your own tuna, you will never again eat regular tuna in the can at the grocery store. Each step is very important, so…

Elk Lasagna-The Classic

Sometimes you just have to have a classic dish that you can go too in your recipe collection in a flash.  Something that is fast, but darn good and definitely a step above what everyone else makes.  So my people of the hunting chef…

When my baby wants a steak…SHE GETS A STEAK!

My poor daughter Megan believes that she cannot go to a restaurant and get a steak that is comparable to what her good ole daddy makes her.  We have tried Morton’s, El Gaucho, and The Prime in Vegas to name a few and she always…

Deviled Eggs

I have a friend, aka Egg Man.  I do not have a photo of him because he is wanted in 13 states and re-runs of America’s most wanted are still airing.  The egg man provides me with farm raised eggs of the finest qualities…
