27 Venison Hamburger Steak with Gravy

Venison Hamburger Steak with Gravy

When I was a kid I flat-out hated hamburger steak. It literally gave me a headache to eat it. I don’t know what it was. I didn’t mind the flavor, but I think there was just something disappointing about a […]

39 Venison Stromboli

Venison Stromboli

My family loves pizza and we love hearty, meaty sandwiches. I wanted to combine the two, and did a little research on “Stromboli.” I learned that you can basically put anything you want to in it, and that the traditional […]

18 Venison Stuffed Shells

Venison Stuffed Shells

A few weeks ago I made a stuffed shell recipe in hopes it would be something I could share with you. Coach liked it, but I thought it was a flop. I won’t be sharing that one until I can […]

29 Venison Taco Pie

Venison Taco Pie

I started dreaming about this dish quite a while ago. I was having visions of meat mixed with cornbread, and enough other stuff mixed in to make it a complete meal. I wanted to mix my two favorite styles of food:  […]

12 Pecan Crusted Bass

Pecan Crusted Bass

The Texas Pecan – affectionately pronounced “pee-can”. I actually pronounce it “puh-khan”. But I can’t resist jumping on the pee-can train every once in a while. It’s a marvelous nut. Relatively easy to shell, with the right tools. Sweet and […]

32 Squirrel Pot Pie

Wild Pot Pie

Another Thanksgiving has come and gone, and today I am nestled into the family cabin, deep in the heart of East Texas. {P.S. I wrote this a few days ago, and it’s automatically posting. I wouldn’t want you to think […]

Green Beans with Toasted Pecans

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
