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…

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…

Dutch Apple Pie – Streusel Topping

Dutch Apple Pie – Streusel Topping

Dutch Apple Pie Dutch Apple Pie was known as Sour Cream Apple Pie in my house when I was growing up. It was a once-a-year treat, always at Thanksgiving. Pies in general, unless it was pumpkin pie, were a holiday treat. This might have made Dutch Apple Pie special in one way but the decadent, somewhat old fashioned, filling, deliciousness of this pie would have kept it special if we’d had it every week. It’s hearty, not overly sweet (cut…

Pumpkin Snickerdoodle Cookies – Autumn’s Favorite Cookie

Pumpkin Snickerdoodle Cookies – Autumn’s Favorite Cookie

Pumpkin Snickerdoodle Cookies I think Pumpkin Snickerdoodle Cookies are a tad bit fussy at the baking stage but they are worth it! Preheat your oven to 325°, lower than usual for cookies. And, lay a sheet of parchment paper on your cookie sheet. That’s it, the fussy part. The rest is “normal.” Pumpkin Snickerdoodles are an awesome autumn treat with a cup of hot tea, coffee or chocolate! They pack up well to take on the road because they’re soft…

Creamy Tomato Soup Recipe – On The Fire

Creamy Tomato Soup Recipe After a long day of housework, bakery work, gardening and hunting, one of my favorite things to eat is a mug of Creamy Tomato Soup and a grilled cheese sandwich.

You man use fresh or canned paste tomatoes (or…

Bacon Wrapped Jalapeno Poppers (low heat option)

Bacon Wrapped Jalapeno Poppers (low heat option)

Bacon Wrapped Jalapeno Poppers The Jalapeno peppers started producing fast and furious all of a sudden. There are plenty in the freezer for winter (you don’t need to blanch peppers before freezing) and more dehydrated. I had some free time one afternoon so I started experimenting with cream cheese filling for Bacon Wrapped Jalapeno Poppers. Plain cream cheese is fine. It doesn’t overpower the flavor of bacon and it smooths over some of the heat of Jalapeno, but we like…

Ten Minute Salsa – It’s Too Hot to Cook

Ten Minute Salsa – It’s Too Hot to Cook

Ten Minute Salsa It’s too hot to cook. When it comes to food this time of year I want to head to the high tunnel before the sun heats it up, pick what we’ll have for supper and whatever else is ready to be put up, and be done with it. If we cook meat it happens on the grill. Sometimes all I want after a long hot day of work is this Ten Minute Salsa and some chips. Go…

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…

Fresh Cherry Almond Crisp – No Artificial Sugar Added

Fresh Cherry Almond Crisp – No Artificial Sugar Added

Fresh Cherry Almond Crisp Picking cherries is a labor of love. Our trees are wild so we don’t know what they are, and they are not a variety we’d have chosen. The fruits aren’t close together in a convenient group so it’s a lot of up and down the ladder to get the three cups I need for Fresh Cherry Almond Crisp. It’s worth it. I love cherries and this recipe is so quick and simple it can be made…
