From time to time I bring you delicious side dishes that really aren’t wild, but go really well with wild things. Today I’m bringing you one that is semi-wild. Green Beans with Toasted Pecans. It’s semi-wild because Momma and Daddy […]

Meat in the Freezer 2

Give the Gift of Venison this Year

Hebrews 13:16 “And do not forget to do good and to share with others, for with such sacrifices God is pleased.” My church is hosting a canned food drive for a local food bank. I was getting ready to make […]

23 Sausage Breakfast Skillet

A few weeks ago I made these amazing Parmesan Sausage & Potatoes. I mentioned that I thought it would also make a fantastic breakfast. I tried it as a breakfast, and loved it! All you need is: Venison Sausage  |  […]

24 Fried Squirrel

Fried Squirrel

I know I’m not going to convince some of you to eat squirrel, just like you’re not going to convince me to eat sushi or caviar. It just ain’t gonna happen. But I know of several of you that follow […]

14 Wild Pork Taquitos

Wild Pork Taquitos

I’m on a Mexican food binge. It all started with my Wild Pork Carnitas, then The Perfect Quesadilla, and the train keeps rolling with these Wild Pork Taquitos. Mercy me, were these things good! Plenty fattening, I’m sure, but wow! […]

17 Wild Pork Carnitas Quesadilla

The Perfect Quesadilla {from Wild Pork Carnitas}

I know. It’s pretty basic. It’s a tortilla, meat, and cheese. It’s a quesadilla. Why restaurants insist on charging seven to ten dollars for one blows my mind. The fact that I’m actually writing a post about it kinda blows […]

29 Wild Pork Carnitas

Wild Pork Carnitas

I’ve been making these Pork Carnitas for years, but only recently have I started using wild pork. I was always worried they might be too “wild” tasting, and to be honest when they first start cooking they do smell pretty […]

14 Parmesan Sausage and Potatoes

Parmesan Sausage & Potatoes

I dreamed up a little concoction the other day, but I never dreamed it would be this easy and fast. Savory venison sausage and potatoes covered in melted Parmesan cheese, and fully prepared in a single skillet. We ate this […]

18 Wild Pork Chops and Gravy

Wild Pork Chops & Gravy

I have to say that I’m a little shocked and a lot humbled by the attention my Chicken Fried Backstrap recipe has gotten. Since I first published it in March, 3,072 people have looked it up. And for good reason. […]

21 Crockpot Venison and Broccoli

Crockpot Venison & Broccoli

Do you have a food or style of food that you hated as a kid, and now you tolerate, or even love, that food? I’ve heard that taste buds change every seven years. This meal is living proof of that […]

21 Bourbon Backstrap

Bourbon Backstrap

What were you doing on Columbus Day? I was spending my time hiking and playing with my four favorite people. We got to see the leaves beginning to change at Lost Maples State Park, and then we frolicked {literally, frolicked} […]

15 Wild Pork and Rice

Wild Pork & Rice {from leftover South of the Border Drunken Dove}

A few weeks ago we sampled our dove {we only had five – for a family of five}. And since there wasn’t much, the South of the Border Drunken Dove left us wanting more. We didn’t have any more dove […]

17 Rosemary Crusted Backstrap

Rosemary Crusted Backstrap

I hate when I do things that I know will get me in trouble. Somehow we still have five packages of venison backstrap in the freezer from last fall. I was just trying to make room for the upcoming season, […]

24 Dirty Santa Fe Chowder

Dirty Santa Fe Chowder

It’s still been in the 90s around here lately, but last week we had some beautiful nights in the 50s, and I totally took advantage of the cooler evenings {80° instead of 95°} to enjoy this soup. I know I […]

13 Jenny's Cream Corn

Jenny’s Cream Corn

I always feel a little weird sharing a non-game recipe on this website. I mean, it’s a wild game recipe website. But there are some sides that are just too stinkin’ good not to share! This cream corn recipe is […]

31 Crockpot Venison Enchiladas

Crockpot Venison Enchiladas {with Homemade Enchilada Sauce}

Did I tell you I started a new job? Twice a week I drive out to a ranch and get to do non-household related tasks for the ranch owner. It’s very fulfilling and good for my sanity. I even get […]

27 Drunken Charro Beans

Drunken Charro Beans

I have two great recipes for pinto beans that I rotate through. I’ll get in a habit of making one recipe, and then I’ll change things up and use the other recipe, at which point Coach will say, “Wow, these […]

21 South of the Border Drunken Dove

South of the Border Drunken Dove

I’m going to tell you a really sad story. Once upon there was a guy and his girl and they wanted some dove. Dove season opened on a Monday, so they only had one day to hunt. This guy and […]

9 Grilled Okra

Grilled Okra – The BEST way to cook okra after fried!

I promised I’d share, and here it is – Grilled Okra! We love fried okra, and Coach loves pickled okra, but any other way I’ve made it, it was just so slimy. Even in Cajun dishes {Mamma called it “Gumbo” […]

13 Spicy Grilled Bass

Spicy Grilled Bass

This recipe seems too simple to really be a recipe, but it was so good that I can’t resist sharing it with you. There is nothing fancy about this meal, but it sure hit the spot. I’m a big fan […]
