Rosemary Garlic Moose Roast

Rosemary Garlic Moose Roast

Rosemary Garlic Moose Roast I love a good French dip sandwich. Heck of a way to start a moose roast recipe, eh? The first ingredient in the sandwich is thin slices of Rosemary Garlic Moose Roast. A generous friend who hunts with a bow filled his moose tag again this year. He sent a cooler with meat and I returned it with bread. We definitely got the better end of this deal so I’ll be sending bread and baked goods…

Baked Grouse with Brown Rice, Cranberries and Walnuts

Baked Grouse with Brown Rice, Cranberries and Walnuts

Baked Grouse with Brown Rice, Cranberries and Walnuts It’s been a good hunting season for ruffed grouse, or partridge as most folks here call them. Do you know the difference between grouse and partridge? The locals say grouse is what you hunt with a guide and bird dog while partridge is what you hunt on your own, the difference being the amount of money spent on the excursion. ­čÖé We’re going with grouse today. Baked grouse, brown rice, cranberries and…

Salmon Cakes Recipe – Use Fresh or Canned Salmon

Salmon Cakes Recipe – Use Fresh or Canned Salmon

Salmon Cakes Recipe My Salmon Cakes recipe makes a salmon cake that’s excellent as a main dish or an appetizer. I’m quite happy to have a salmon cake and a salad for lunch or supper. You may use your fresh-caught, a filet, or two cans of salmon. Cans are quick and simple and since they don’t require refrigeration you can take them camping. I like to use a red, orange or yellow Bell pepper to add a little color to…

Ham Salad – Basic Recipe & Ways to Mix it Up

Ham Salad – Basic Recipe & Ways to Mix it Up

Ham Salad Cooking a huge Rosemary Mustard Crusted ham for two people on Easter weekend gave us a lot of leftovers. I chose a large ham so we could have ham for breakfast and summer as well as to make ham salad. I start the salad with this basic recipe and then add to it to give it a lot of variety. Traditionally, ham is ground before mayo is added. I’m not a fan of that texture, and I think…

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…

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…

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…

Homemade Italian Sausage Recipe

Homemade Italian Sausage Recipe

┬áHomemade Italian Sausage Recipe When I look for recipes for sausage I find recipes using sausage, not making sausage. It took me quite some time to come up with our homemade Italian sausage recipe a few years ago. It takes trial and error, and we have to consider the freshness and quality of the herbs and spices we use. I tucked this recipe away two years ago after we raised a couple of pigs out near the orchard. At that…
