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…

Warm Spicy Apple Cider – On The Fire

Warm Spicy Apple Cider If you like a warm drink on a cool autumn or downright cold winter day, this Warm Spicy Apple Cider is for you.

Fill a Thermos to take apple picking, foraging, fishing or hunting. Turn it into an adult beverage with a shot and relax on a rainy evening or…

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 – 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. This time of year there are ripe tomatoes to use up – they need to be eaten fresh, cooked into a recipe, canned or frozen. This soup recipe is simple and doesn’t require a lot of attention. You man use fresh or canned paste tomatoes (or…

Zucchini Soup – Warm or Chilled, Delicious!

Zucchini Soup – Warm or Chilled, Delicious!

Zucchini Soup It’s still early in the summer growing season so there probably aren’t a lot of caveman-club sized zucchini hiding in the garden. We usually save the oversized zucchini for bread or soup, or to dry in the dehydrator for winter soups. Let’s make a summer soup with smaller zucchini. The texture is smoother, the flavor is better, and the seeds are tiny and tender. Let’s make my cousin Mimi’s Zucchini Soup. You can serve Zucchini Soup hot 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…

Apple Pie Oatmeal – Simple Hearty Breakfast

Apple Pie Oatmeal – Simple Hearty Breakfast

 Apple Pie Oatmeal Today on the homestead! I am home all day for the second day in a row. Let’s start with breakfast, my favorite meal of the day. I’ve been filling up on apple pie oatmeal before I go out to work (unless Steve is home, and then he cooks breakfast). It’s delicious, hearty, filling, and it keeps me satisfied until lunch. The desire to snack is gone when I’m full of oatmeal. This works well in a crock…

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…
