Turkey Tater Tot Hotdish

Turkey Tater Tot Hotdish

Like any true Minnesotan, I’m a sucker for a hearty hotdish like tater tot hotdish. This is especially true once the mercury starts dropping in the sub-freezing range. Now, I know some of you are wondering what the heck is a hotdish?!?  It’s just the […]

Apple Chutney Chicken

Apple Chutney Chicken

Thanksgiving is just a handful of days away so I’ve been preparing my home to host family and friends the entire weekend long. I am thankful for the opportunity to share food and laughter together with the people who mean the most to me. To […]

Take your (wild) game to the next level of flavor with these venison steaks smothered in a sweet smoky aioli! Venison is a deliciously high protein meat that’s also low in fat which makes it perfect for individuals who are watching their calories but still […]

Venison Tenderloin with Creamy Mustard Sauce

Venison Tenderloin with Creamy Mustard Sauce

My daughter went hunting for the very first time this year. I learned to hunt when I was about her age and remember sighting deer with my dad, though I never really took to it. I preferred to help cut the meat into its proper […]

Thai Basil Chicken

Thai Basil Chicken

Olive Feta Chicken Roulade

Olive Feta Chicken Roulade

This morning, I broke out my mini-greenhouse and got my garden seedlings planted! That means that spring is here (along with allergies, ugh…) and now I’m patiently waiting for the real weather warm-up to happen so I can play in the dirt everyday and enjoy harvesting […]

Enchilada Casserole

Enchilada Casserole

Apparently, enchilasagna is an actual word. Well, at least it is on the interwebs. It’s simply the combo of enchilada fixings layered in a pan just like a lasagna. That word seems strange so I’m sticking with easy and uncomplicated and just calling this an […]

Marinated Venison Chops

Marinated Venison Chops

Over the river and through the woods, a lovely deer made it’s way into my kitchen, complements of my hunter husband. Every fall my man goes on multi-day excursion to hunt with a group of five other fellas, all of which are my immediate family or […]
