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…

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…

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…

Breakfast Frittata with Sausage and Cheese

Breakfast Frittata with Sausage and Cheese

Sausage and Cheese Breakfast Frittata Our “kids” are grown so Christmas morning is quiet at our house. This year Steve is working “weekend duty” at work so he’ll be out to morning meeting and make sure everything’s alright. While he’s gone I’ll make our breakfast. We traditionally have a hot breakfast, not too big, that holds us over until we have dinner in the early afternoon. This year I’m making a favorite, sausage and cheese breakfast frittata. I’ll give you…

Potato Pancakes Recipe – Thanksgiving Leftovers

Potato Pancakes Recipe – Thanksgiving Leftovers

Potato Pancakes I’ve adjusted the ingredient measurements for these Thanksgiving leftovers recipes. They’re a little more solid than the recipes I gave in this week’s On The Fire on air – but there’s still a lot of wiggle room. The moisture content in your mashed potatoes will determine whether or not you need to use an extra egg or add all-purpose flour in your potato pancakes mix. You’ll find another Thanksgiving leftovers recipe in Squash Soup. Thanksgiving leftovers are one…

Creamy Wild Mushroom Soup

Creamy Wild Mushroom Soup

Creamy Wild Mushroom Soup Creamy wild mushroom soup is one of my comfort foods. You don’t have to have to pick wild mushrooms to make this recipe. You can find mushrooms in the produce section of most groceries and sometimes at Farmers Market. I like to add a variety of mushrooms to one batch. Portobello, Lobster, Porcini, Coral, Shiitake, Cremini, and Oyster are varieties I think work very well. Lobster is a dense, dry mushroom, the only variety I was…

Blueberry Bourbon BBQ Sauce

Blueberry Bourbon BBQ Sauce

Blueberry Bourbon BBQ Sauce I’m a barbecue sauce snob and have no problem admitting so. At the same time, I’m not a bourbon snob. I don’t even love bourbon. Truth be told, I barely like it. So why blueberry bourbon BBQ sauce? Bourbon is a small portion of the recipe. It adds a lot to the flavor without being overwhelming. DISCLAIMER: I don’t know that all of the alcohol will dissipate while the sauce simmers. Maybe, but I don’t know….
