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…

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
