Return to the Hood Canal for Spotted Shrimp

One of my favorite times of the year is the late Spring up at the Hood Canal.  We have some friends up there that have been generous enough to be patient with us Oregonians and teach us about shrimping.  When Trevor and I think…

Springer Salmon Miso-Glazed with Sesame

Springer Salmon season came and went fast.  We had high water with the heavy rains, then the sun came out to basically give us two weeks of good fishing.  Those two weeks produced some good fish and great smiles. I hate fishing the Willamette….

BBQ Oysters with Garlic, Shallots, Bacon, and Pepperjack Cheese

This is my second post of my 45th birthday celebration.  The group had moved down to the fire pit while I was putting together some bbq oysters, they had just finished off four huge fresh Dungeness crabs. So the boys were getting prime rib…

Steamed Clams with Chorizo, White Wine, and Tomatoes

Bison ribeye with Guinness Beer and Dijon Marinade and fresh pasta alla Carbonara

I love St. Paddy’s day…I love Corn Beef (actually Corn Elk Beef is far better) but I love the mood.  This week it is on Monday so I thought I would do a little Pre funk St. Paddy’s day celebration.  My wife ran the…

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…

Pretzel Rolls stuffed with Cheese, Jalapeno, and bacon.

My friend Jason sent this recipe to me for the Super Bowl via Facebook, my wife saw it and said I had to make them or sleep on the couch.  Thank you Jason, I really do not appreciate the art of baking.  I also…

Bok Choy with Garlic Soy Sauce

I told you all that I was going to make some more Bok Choy and true to my word made it the other night as a side dish.  My youngest daughter who is three loves to run around the kitchen yelling BOK CHOY.  She…

Venison Steak and Bok Choy Stir Fry

I went to the Asian grocery market to get some fresh sushi grade tuna, and some quail eggs for my tuna tartare recipe.  I see this bok choy all over the place, and I saw it in Chinatown San Francisco last weekend and it…

Pheasant Appetizer for Tanner

I have not blogged about Tanner, because quite frankly I tear up to much to see the computer.  She passed away last fall, she was 17 years old and amazingly she died in her sleep which she probably did in efforts to keep me…

Venison Stroganoff

If you asked my oldest daughter Megan what one of my favorite dishes I love to eat about twice a year, without a doubt it would be the German Stroganoff.  I just texted her at college and she nailed it.  If it is made…
