Coleslaw Recipe – 10 Ways to Change Up the Basic Recipe

Coleslaw Recipe – 10 Ways to Change Up the Basic Recipe

Coleslaw Recipe What’s a picnic without coleslaw! I think of this coleslaw recipe in the spring and summer, and then again in the fall and winter. This really is an all-season side dish that suits a lot of meals. This spring we’re packing this in the cooler to take with us when we’re picnicking on the bank of a stream we’ve been fly fishing, and while we’re scouting for turkeys as the season is about to open. It’s always a…

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…

Maple Walnut Pound Cake

Maple Walnut Pound Cake

Maple Walnut Pound Cake It’s maple season again. Our friends at Chandler’s Sugar Shack in Kossuth are tapping 4,000+ trees this year. It wasn’t that long ago that they started out with less than 200 and now here they are with a sugar “shack” the square footage (or more) of our house and thousands of thousands…and thousands of taps. I decided to use some of our syrup to make Maple Walnut Pound Cake. Oh my gosh. It’s just enough maple…

Deviled Eggs – Classic Recipe And Twists

Deviled Eggs The mid-winter point is like an on switch for the ducks and chickens.

Bacon & Blue Cheese Dressing

Bacon & Blue Cheese Dressing

Bacon & Blue Cheese Dressing My all-time favorite dressing is Bacon & Blue Cheese. We use it as a salad dressing, with wings, and even on burgers and steak. This is another recipe that’s easy to adjust to your tastes. One cup each of blue cheese and bacon crumbles makes a chunky, thick dressing. Blue cheese can be quite tangy, especially if it’s aged so adjust the strength of the blue cheese flavor by adding a smaller amount. Add more…

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…

It’s easy to remember, easy to make, and easy to eat…

Fish Chowder – From Lake to Bowl

Fish Chowder – From Lake to Bowl

Fish Chowder A steaming bowl of fish chowder, a thick slice of homemade bread slathered with good butter, and a big spoon. That’s all I need to make a meal that leaves me wanting more even after I’m stuffed to the gills (you see what I did there?). Chowder isn’t just for seafood. You can use fresh water fish, and it’s especially good if you’re using fish you’ve just caught while ice fishing. I stick with white fish and skip…

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…
