A lot of having a life in the wild revolves around food. Growing, raising, wild harvest, foraging – it’s all about food. I love to share my recipes. They’re simple recipes that don’t need fussy ingredients.

Chili Lime Salmon – On the Grill or In The Oven

Chili Lime Salmon – On the Grill or In The Oven

Chili Lime Salmon Salmon! We catch more salmon in spring than other times of the year, and we eat them about as fast as we bring them home. It isn’t very often that we have more than one or two in the freezer. The weather isn’t cooperating for fly fishing yet but it shouldn’t be long. Until then, we’re using Atlantic salmon to make Chili Lime Salmon. Dill is the typical go-to seasoning but we like something different now and…

Rosemary Mustard Crusted Ham – Low Carb

Rosemary Mustard Crusted Ham – Low Carb

Rosemary Mustard Crusted Ham We love ham. Smoked, baked, glazed, scored, boiled dinner – we love ham. Rosemary Mustard Crusted ham is a new favorite recipe. I didn’t come up with this on my own. I mixed three ideas from recipes I found online all together and did a lot of adjusting to get it just right. A spicy stone ground mustard works well for us because we like the flavor and texture. You should use any prepared mustard you…

Chicken Capri

Chicken Capri

Chicken Capri Oh winter pudge. We can’t be friends anymore. I’ve been eating healthier, cooking new dishes, trying new methods, and losing a few pounds. This low-carb, Keto, South Beach, healthy, delicious, you-name-it recipe works well with wild turkey, domestic turkey, chicken, pheasant and most likely quail, woodcock, ruffed grouse and other upland game birds. Ricotta cheese is seasoned and tops the chicken. When baked, it makes a creamy, flavorful cheese sauce. You can serve this with rice or pasta…

Lazy Shrimp Creole – Easy One-Pot Meal

Lazy Shrimp Creole – Easy One-Pot Meal

Lazy Shrimp Creole Let’s be honest. This Maine girl doesn’t know much at all about Shrimp Creole. We’ve been eating healthier lately so I can get rid of winter pudge before summer gets here. I’ve been craving something different. Soup and stew is getting old and there’s still too much snow to bring out the grill. This dish is as hot as you want it to be so it’ll warm you up if it’s still winter where you live. Lazy…

How to Make Bacon

How to Make Bacon

How to Make Bacon Before I cured our first bacon I did a lot of research online. How to make bacon. If you Google that you’ll get how to cook bacon and recipes using bacon but not nearly as many links to how to MAKE bacon. I probably should have used “cure” instead of make. Susy at Chiot’s Run made bacon that looked incredible. “I can do that,” I thought. If I’m going to eat bacon I want it to…

Maple Walnut Pound Cake

Maple Walnut Pound Cake

Maple Walnut Pound Cake It’s maple season again. Our friends at Chandler’s Sugar Shack in Kossuth are tapping 4,000+ trees this year. It wasn’t that long ago that they started out with less than 200 and now here they are with a sugar “shack” the square footage (or more) of our house and thousands of thousands…and thousands of taps. I decided to use some of our syrup to make Maple Walnut Pound Cake. Oh my gosh. It’s just enough maple…

Deviled Eggs – Classic Recipe And Twists

Deviled Eggs – Classic Recipe And Twists

Deviled Eggs The mid-winter point is like an on switch for the ducks and chickens. We went from buying a few dozen eggs between Christmas and the end of January to having five dozen eggs in the fridge. The dogs are having scrambled cracked or frozen eggs for breakfast. What do you do when you have a lot of eggs all of a sudden? Deviled eggs. I love this traditional Deviled eggs recipes and also love variety. There are five…

Bacon & Blue Cheese Dressing

Bacon & Blue Cheese Dressing

Bacon & Blue Cheese Dressing My all-time favorite dressing is Bacon & Blue Cheese. We use it as a salad dressing, with wings, and even on burgers and steak. This is another recipe that’s easy to adjust to your tastes. One cup each of blue cheese and bacon crumbles makes a chunky, thick dressing. Blue cheese can be quite tangy, especially if it’s aged so adjust the strength of the blue cheese flavor by adding a smaller amount. Add more…

Mac n Cheddar Cheese

Mac n Cheddar Cheese

Mac n Cheddar Cheese Baked Mac n Cheddar Cheese is a favorite for lots of us. I never tire of it. This is nothing like the bright orange powdered cheese mac that comes in a box. I used Clothbound Chedder from Grace Hill Farm in Cummington, MA. I found the cheese at Boston Public Market on a weekend trip with Taylor to visit Kristin. You should use your favorite cheddar. Or, use Gouda. If a cheese melts well and you…

Chicken Marsala – Great with Upland Game Birds, too

Chicken Marsala – Great with Upland Game Birds, too

Chicken Marsala Recipe When I mentioned to a friend that this week’s recipe is Chicken Marsala she said, “I thought you weren’t going to get complicated.” It sounds a little fancy, doesn’t it. This is a simple recipe. It takes a little time but it’s worth it. The Marsala is wine. There are a few steps to Chicken Marsala but they’re more time-consuming than complicated. It’s worth the effort! Read the recipe a couple of times if you haven’t made…
