Venison Sausage Biscuit Log

I have been waiting for five hundred sixty-four days to bring this recipe to you. I’m not exaggerating. Since the very first post that I wrote on February 8, 2014, I’ve wanted to make a Venison Sausage Biscuit Log and […]

Sausage Makin' Day

A Day in the Life of a Coach’s Wife on Sausage Makin’ Day

So we made sausage. Let me start over. We moved. I needed the top freezer space of the refrigerator back for my every day frozen items. This space was filled with wild pork and venison from the 2014 season that […]

22 Lemon Rosemary Wild Turkey Breast

Lemon Rosemary Wild Turkey Breast

It was the final package of wild turkey breast half for this season. No more turkey for another 45 days, if we’re lucky enough to get one early. And it was so tender and juicy that it’s going to be […]

36 Venison Tortas

Venison Tortas

I never understood going to a Mexican food restaurant and ordering a sandwich. Even with a fancy name like “Torta” is still seemed like a waste to get a sandwich when I could have my choice of enchiladas, fajitas, tacos… […]

42 Venison Stir Fry

Venison Stir Fry

We love stir fry. The funny part is when I was a kid my parents would have had to pry my mouth open with a crowbar to force me to eat it. And yet here I sit surrounded by three […]

27 Wild Turkey Nugget Salad

Wild Turkey Nugget Salad

I truly appreciate the beauty of a fully stocked freezer. On any given night I have the options of venison, wild pork, or bass. A few times out of the year my freezer also has an assortment of wild turkey, […]

Venison Carne Guisada

It feels unbelievably amazing to be back here writing for you! Moving is NO fun! But check out my new view from my desk. Isn’t that beautiful? Time to settle back into country living. It’s been a BUSY couple of […]

Be right back

Back in a minute…

It’s almost that time. I just spent the last three hours packing my first five boxes getting ready for our next move. Fortunately we get to stay in the area this time, but our landlords sold their house {rather quickly, […]

17 Venison Salsa Burgers

Venison Salsa Burgers

Just in time for the 4th of July… How about some Venison Salsa Burgers? These burgers are a little fragile, but boy are they tasty and juicy! If you struggle with dry venison burgers, adding this little bit of salsa […]

23 Chicken Fried Hamburger Steak Fingers

Chicken Fried Hamburger Steak Fingers

I don’t know what came over me. I really wanted to try making some steak fingers. You know, the kind that you ate in the high school cafeteria. Or the kind they serve at Dairy Queen. I love steak fingers, […]

18 Garlic Butter Venison Steaks

Garlic Butter Venison Steaks

I’ve been using venison steaks a lot lately for different things: Venison Fajita Burritos, Venison Fajita Taco Salad, Bourbon Venison Steaks. But I hadn’t just served them as, well, steaks. It was about time. It was one of those days […]

1 Blackberry Chillers

Blackberry Chillers

I was sitting at my dining table, writing my post for Jacklyn’s Riggies, really wanting something to drink, but really not craving water. I’m a recovering Dr. Pepper-aholic. I used to drink a minimum of 32 ounces a day, and […]

22 Jacklyn's Riggies

Jacklyn’s Riggies

We’ve established that my friend Jacklyn knows how to cook. She proved that when she shared her Gram Yozzo’s Meatballs with me, which I then shared with you. Then she sent me another recipe, which I’m calling Jacklyn’s Riggies. Jacklyn, […]

8 Blackberry Crisp

3 Ingredient Blackberry Crisp

I know I said last Thursday that I’d be slowing down, but three hours in the truck on our way to Dinosaur Valley State Park gave me the down time I needed to write this post. The awesome thing about this […]

Blackberry Pickin' (420x420)

Life Lessons Learned in a Blackberry Patch

Last week I spent an hour picking blackberries at the family ranch. An hour alone, by myself, just God, the blackberries, the wolf spiders, and the grasshoppers. I even saw a flock of pelicans, yes pelicans, flying overhead migrating north. […]

35 Mediterranean Orzo and Venison

Mediterranean Orzo & Venison

Last summer I picked a TON of cherry tomatoes from a friend’s garden. I was heading out of town and needed to do something with the tomatoes quick. And then I forgot to use them and I asked Coach to […]

18 Venison Stuffed Mini Peppers

Venison Stuffed Mini Peppers

Sprout’s Farmers Market carries these awesome delicious mini sweet peppers. Not only are they beautiful, they’re also delicious! They’re sweet without the mild bitterness that green bell peppers have. I’ve never seen them at any other store, but every time […]

26 Rustic Blackberry Cobbler

Rustic Blackberry Cobbler

I want to start off by saying that I am not photo-shaming my daughter. I am actually shaming myself. I am a no good, rotten, horrible, bad mother. I’m an awful person. It is completely my fault that my sweet […]

39 Venison Tamale Pie

Venison Tamale Pie

I L.O.V.E. tamales! I’m sad to say that I’ve never had venison tamales. I would love for some sweet old senora to teach me how to make them someday, but it’s one area that I would prefer to learn from […]

21 Venison Skillet Lasagna

Venison Skillet Lasagna

I realize that I’m a little short in the quick-prep recipe department. My recipes are usually simple, but because they’re mostly completely-homemade-from-scratch recipes they tend to take some time and a little effort. That is not the case with this […]
