Wild Game Recipes

Now that the freezer is full, it is time to start cooking some venison!  Our daughter even noticed and proclaimed, “Mom, we need to start eating some meat!”.  Despite being delicious, the reason I cook with venison so often is that it is so versatile – I could put it on the table every night […]

After our appearance on the Good Day morning show on Fox 7 Austin, we have received lots of requests for the meatball recipe featured in the segment.  As many home cooks know, meat balls are personal.  Every cook has their own recipe.  Well, in our house, the recipe is ever changing.  Whether it’s meatballs or […]

plucking ducks

After years of talking & thinking about it I finally decided to try using some hot wax to clean my ducks. We had a great first part of the season and I had a strap of birds aging in the fridge so figured it was time! I’ve tried it twice now and the second time […]

This recipe was originally posted on Hank Shaw’s blog and on South Louisiana Recipes but is no longer available on either site. It’s one of my favorites for duck & goose breasts and works extremely well with diver ducks that aren’t quite as tasty as their dabbling duck cousins. This is a great recipe for […]

There’s nothing better than coming home from a successful hunt and enjoying an amazing dinner created from your harvest. This past weekend I was fortunate enough to kill a doe during archery season here in Texas and couldn’t wait to get it home to share with friends and family. It’s become a tradition for our […]
