21 Sausage Tomato Gumbo

Sausage Tomato Gumbo

Growing up, the only kind of “Gumbo” I ever ate was tomato-based gumbo. It’s what Momma made. And it was really good. But now that I’ve had {and love} “Roux-based” Gumbo, I have a hard time calling tomato-based gumbo “Gumbo.” […]

20 Venison Fajita Soft Tacos

Venison Fajita Soft Tacos with Chimichurri Sauce

Confession:  Most of the time when I share a recipe with you, it doesn’t make the rotation again for a while because, well, I’m too busy finding/creating/recreating new recipes to share with you. Last week I was inspired to combine […]

27 Spicy Tangy Pulled Pork Sandwiches

Spicy Tangy Pulled Pork Sandwiches {from wild pork roast}

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

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 […]

12 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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
