Italian Dressing Recipe – On The Fire

Italian Dressing Recipe – On The Fire

Italian Dressing Recipe Tis the season of salads! This is my standard Italian Dressing recipe. Of course it’s great for a veggie salad but I also use it in pasta salad and as a marinade for chicken. You can use this as soon as you’re done mixing it up or let it sit a while so the flavors from the dried herbs are at their best. This dressing stores well in a Mason jar in the fridge for about a…

Hazelnut Crusted Trout – On The Fire

Hazelnut Crusted Trout – On The Fire

Hazelnut Crusted Trout One of the best parts of spring, at least for me, is open-water fishing. The only place we’re finding open water this year in early April is streams and the outlets of lakes and ponds. They’re great places to find brookies and salmon. We like to make the best of cold water fishing now since the salmon will head down to deeper water when the temperature rises. I like trout best but I don’t say no to…

Lemon Marinated Feta Cheese – On The Fire

Lemon Marinated Feta Cheese – On The Fire

Lemon Marinated Feta Cheese Kristin brings a wonderful marinated sheep and goat milk cheese to me when she comes to visit. I stretch it out as long as possible by eating only one one-inch cube at a time. I use every drop of the olive oil, usually on Crostini, to get every last bit of goodness. This lemon marinated Feta cheese isn’t the same but it’s just as good in its own way. Preheat the oven to 400°. You’re going…

Panko Parmesan Crusted Asparagus – On The Fire

Panko Parmesan Crusted Asparagus – On The Fire

Panko Parmesan Crusted Asparagus It isn’t asparagus season here yet, the garden is still covered in snow. I’m grateful that it’s in season somewhere, and I’m overlooking the distance it’s traveling to get to my table. Panko Parmesan Crusted Asparagus is easy to make but more time consuming than other ways I prepare asparagus. Note the temperature – not the usual 350°. Set the oven to 450°. The Panko crumbs and Parmesan cheese will meld together and get crusty in…

Sweet & Spicy Pork Tenderloin

Sweet & Spicy Pork Tenderloin

Pork tenderloin can be used in many ways. I like to dice leftover tenderloin for pork fried rice, slice it into 3″ thick slabs to butterfly and stuff, pan fry, and one of my favorites – Sweet & Spicy Pork Tenderloin. Adjust the amount of crushed red pepper to suit your tastes, but be careful to not overwhelm the sweetness of the sauce. Pork tenderloin is mild.

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

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…
