Bison Burgers

Bison Burgers

with Garlic & Feta

Posted on August 30, 2016
Hamburgers don’t have to be exclusively made with beef. These Bison Burgers with Garlic & Feta are definite proof of that. Bison is a little leaner than beef and pork, but the flavor is incredible. Accent that with some fresh garlic, and salty feta cheese for an incredible burger. A local butcher should be able to help you get your hands on Bison meat for this recipe, but you can also try your local farmer’s market.

Soy and Honey Marinated Duck

Soy and Honey Marinated Duck

with Broccoli Fried Rice

Posted on July 20, 2016
Duck is savory and definitely different. It pairs beautifully with aromatics like thyme and sage. Duck can just as easily go with a delightful and sweet maple-butter. However, in search of something a little different, I decided to make Soy and Honey Marinated Duck with Broccoli Fried Rice. These duck breasts are marinated in soy, honey, sesame oil, and sake, then grilled to a perfect medium rare and served atop a bed of fresh fried rice, chock full of veggies. This delicious dish will be a fan favorite as soon as you serve it.

Thyme and Feta Lamburgers with Avocado Aioli on COBS Bread Gourmet Hamburger Buns are delicious, with a small kick that is mellowed out by the creamy and cooling aioli. They’re a different meal in a familiar package. Even my picky husband admitted that these were some mighty fine burgers.

Tunisian Smoked Lamb

Tunisian Smoked Lamb

with Garlic Yogurt Sauce

Posted on May 25, 2016
Tunisian Smoked Lamb with Garlic Yogurt Sauce is spicy and exotic. The smoky flavor transforms this dish, bringing you back to the days when food was cooked over an open flame. My grandparents love visiting Tunisia and rave about the food and the décor every time they come back. I thought it was time to visit myself, but settled on making a grilled dish similar to what you would find in a Tunisian household instead of taking a flight. You’ll be transported too when you try this dish!

Rotisserie Leg of Lamb

Rotisserie Leg of Lamb

with Stuffing

Posted on March 24, 2016
Rotisserie Leg of Lamb with Stuffing is a roast that is out of the ordinary in many ways. I bought the cut of meat knowing that the bone was removed, but didn’t realize that the whole thing had been more or less butterflied (duh). Having that available space gave me an idea for a very delectable meal. Usually I would crust the outside of the lamb with savory herbs, but this time I wanted to fill the inside! So I created a quasi-stuffing with some panko and herbs, then tied everything up, and seasoned the outside very simply. Using the rotisserie the outside of the Leg of Lamb caramelized, and in the end, we ended up with a beautiful looking, delicious dinner.

Wild Boar Chops

Wild Boar Chops

Marinated in Blueberry Tea

Posted on February 10, 2016
I have a goal of trying as many exotic meats as I can get my hands on. I wasn’t able to get Elk, but while looking I did find some boar chops that looked too good to pass up. Wild Boar, like pork, benefits from sweet flavors, so when a friend generously gave me some blueberry tea, I just had to use it on the boar. These Wild Boar Chops Marinated in Blueberry Tea came out succulent and amazing. The light sweetness of the tea, paired with a perfect reverse sear, and topped with a blueberry barbecue sauce are a little bit of a different take on the romantic dinner for two.

Glazed Duck

Glazed Duck

With Spicy Fried Rice

Posted on January 05, 2016
A few weeks back I made Glazed Duck With Spicy Fried Rice for dinner. There's something about this Asian-inspired meal that marries the delicious spice of the rice with a sweet glaze on the duck for a meal that covers all of the bases. The rice is full of veggies so you don’t necessarily need to make more.  Although the more veg the merrier!  This is a very filling meal – one duck breast will feed you well.

Water Buffalo Strip Steaks

Water Buffalo Strip Steaks

With Double Baked Potatoes

Posted on October 22, 2015
Water Buffalo Strip Steaks come from a water buffalo, not a man in a unicorn mask, he was selling bath stuff. They're lower in cholesterol and higher in mineral content than beef. This is good. They're flavorful, slightly gamey, but not overpoweringly so. Water Buffalo steaks are just plain good. (So is their milk by the way). At the Water Buffalo Festival in Sterling, I had the intense pleasure to try smoked Buffalo ribs, and other interesting substances. I was immediately hooked and bought some of everything. When it came time to grill these steaks up, I wanted the meat to shine, so I seasoned simply, as you know I love to do when it comes to steak, and went to town. Check your specialty butcher for interesting meat like Water Buffalo.

Roasted Duck Legs

Roasted Duck Legs

Glazed With Plum Sauce

Posted on September 14, 2015
I really enjoy the deep savory flavor of duck. It's getting easier to find, but it's still a pretty expensive meat. I wanted to use the last of those delightful in season plums, and knew that the naturally salty flavor of the duck would mesh beautifully with the sweet and smoky flavor of the plums. That's how Roasted Duck Legs Glazed With Plum Sauce was born. I learned the hard way that garlic can quickly overpower the plums when making the sauce, but when all was said and done, everything worked out in the end. 

I served this meal with some roasted potatoes, tossed with fresh dill and gouda, as well as roasted broccoli, just lightly salted. All in all, a well rounded and delicious meal.

Mushroom And Onion Bison Steaks

Mushroom And Onion Bison Steaks

With Cinnamon Sweet Potatoes

Posted on August 18, 2015
I wanted to make something special for my friend who came to visit our house. So we went to the farmer's market downtown for some special food. We found bison at one booth, and all of the fresh produce at the others. I even got a basket of peaches that are totally blowing my mind right now. For dinner we made Mushroom And Onion Bison Steaks With Cinnamon Sweet Potatoes. Everything came from the farmer's market. It was glorious.
