Chicken Pot Pie & Homestead Chicken Stock

Chicken Pot Pie & Homestead Chicken Stock

Chicken Pot Pie & Homestead Chicken Stock My new cooking friend Holly is home from college and wants to cook. She’s going to make this for her three best friends while they’re home together on break. Holly doesn’t cook, or so she says, but she’s going to be a cook by the time she’s done. We chose a simple and inexpensive dish. There’s very little room for error in chicken pot pie. To save money, Holly is making chicken stock…

Bourbon Meatballs – On The The Fire

Bourbon Meatballs – On The The Fire

Bourbon Meatballs I love these meatballs. Love them. I’m not a big fan of bourbon alone but Bourbon Meatballs is one of my favorites. I make these for appetizers or increase the size of the meatball and use them as an entree. The bourbon gives this recipe a rich flavor. Definitely not for kids so if you want to make a meatball everyone can enjoy you may replace the bourbon with apple cider. If you’re in a time crunch or…

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 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. 🙂 We’re going with grouse today. Baked grouse, brown rice, cranberries and…

Beef, Vegetable & Barley Soup – Another Hearty Soup from On The Fire

Beef, Vegetable & Barley Soup – Another Hearty Soup from On The Fire

Beef  Vegetable Barley Soup Beef Vegetable Barley soup is one of my favorite soups. I like to make it on a Friday morning, store it in the fridge, and serve it as a hearty, easy dinner at the end of a busy week. This soup stores well in the fridge for three or four days, long enough to keep you well fed over a weekend or during a long week. If you don’t have stew beef on hand you could…

You man use fresh or canned paste tomatoes (or…

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…

Oyster Mushroom Recipe – With Sage and Garlic

Oyster Mushroom Recipe – With Sage and Garlic

Oyster Mushroom Recipe Oyster mushrooms are one of the first mushrooms we pick. Steve can spot them 15 feet up a birch tree when he’s driving 50 mph down Route 6. I’m not that good. I’m usually too busy bobble-heading for wildlife and anything else I can find. I forget about the mushrooms. Such is life. I’m better at finding them when I’m on foot, and then I bring home enough to make this oyster mushroom recipe. Fresh mushrooms, butter,…

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…
