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…

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…

Camping with the Storlies

Every once in a while I get an opportunity to just blast a couple of my friends.  I know I have been hard on some people in my past blogs, and it was selfish of me to use them as an asset to find humor.  So…

How to Clean a Tuna

Catching Tuna off the Oregon Coast can be the most exhilarating 30 minutes once you find them that you can have in a boat.  The last time we fished in Cabo, we had 29 in less than 30 minutes.  When the bite is over,…

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…

Wild Mushroom Stuffed Quail with Truffle Sauce

When quail season begins, I get a little giddy about it.  Something about these fat, little luscious birds that are not only fun to hunt, but they are great to eat.  There are several species of quail, but they all taste great on the…

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…

The Morel Mushroom Ring (Precious) gets passed on to new King

The beginning of the Morel season has begun.  My old buddy Trevor Storlie and I have been pounding away over the years, competing in ever sense of the way, on who can collect the most morel mushrooms in a single weekend. If you read this…

Wild Mushroom Risotto with Pesto Scallops

I said I was going to post it and true to my word, I finally got around to it.   This one goes great with the “Springer Salmon Cedar Plank” recipe.  I decided for the blog that I would do it as a main course. …

A small girl and her five gallon bucket

While camping and clamming this week.  I got to watch my youngest daughter Mady, steal my clamming bucket.  I am thinking to myself while watching herself navigate down the small hill to the RV while carrying the stolen 5 gallon bucket “She has 500…

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…

Shaniko Smoked Elk Burgers

  We had a group of hunters visit us for some good ole fashion pheasant and chucker hunting and of course I had to make a big lunch for 12 dudes.  So I thought about doing smoked elk burgers and one of my friends has…
