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 […]

19 Venison Teriyaki Rice Casserole

Venison Teriyaki Rice Casserole

Have you made the Crockpot Venison Teriyaki yet? You’re gonna need it before you can make this. I planned this dish with high hopes for having leftovers. You’ll want to use at least a pound and a half roast to […]

32 Crockpot Venison Teriyaki

Crockpot Venison Teriyaki

I love a good saucy dish, especially a saucy venison dish. Did your venison get a little dry? No problem! Just smother it in a good sauce! Venison roasts can have a tendency for dryness. But add a good sauce […]

41 Venison Fajita Burritos

Venison Fajita Burritos

When I was in college at Sam Houston State University I traveled to College Station, TX. While I was there I had my first taste of what would become a love affair with Freebirds World Burritos. When we drive through Aggieland […]

Venison Sausage Shish Kabobs

If you aren’t in a summer-ready mood yet you will be by the time you’re done reading this post. If you haven’t fired up the grill, slathered on the sunscreen, turned on the sprinkler, and enjoyed the beauty of a […]

21 Venison Sausage Cajun Linguine

Venison Sausage Cajun Linguine

We recently traveled to Louisiana to watch the Texas A&M Aggie Softball team play against LSU. We were there to cheer on catcher Ashley Walters. Our secondary mission was to eat as much Cajun food as we could in our […]

35 Venison Fajita Taco Salad

Venison Fajita Taco Salad

Last week I promised you a fresh, healthy, delicious salad. I’ve shared a few salad recipes before:  Southwest Salad with Venison Fajita, Venison Steak Spinach & Basil Salad, and Venison Taco Salad. I love a good salad as a meal, […]

27 Bass Scampi

Bass Scampi

I just took a food that is incredibly healthy and turned it into something that is borderline sinful. Seriously, one more tablespoon of butter and I think this one would have fallen into the “gluttony” category. Hmmm. But oh my, […]
