Spring turkey season is here and it’s time to put that meat to good use. This recipe is the PERFECT use of that breast meat.

Asian Sesame Sea Duck

For those of you who don’t know, sea ducks are renowned for being difficult to prepare and tasting much like what they eat: mollusks (clams and mussels), crustaceans, and occasionally small fish. There are generally three categories of duck: Puddle, Diver, and Sea. Puddle ducks include: Teal, Pintail, Wood, Mallard, etc. Diver ducks include: Bufflehead,Continue reading “Asian Sesame Sea Duck”

Tomato Parmesan Tortellini Soup

Out of all the soups I’ve experimented with, I think this is by far the best soup I’ve ever cooked. This hearty soup will be on heavy rotation during the winter months at your house, I promise!

Maple Roasted Butternut Squash Soup

During the Autumn months, I turn to soup as one of my favorite dishes. It’s warm, comforting, and the perfect comfort food as the days begin to get shorter and the nights much colder. I’ve made butternut squash soup without roasting it AND without adding the sweet component of maple syrup and I often findContinue reading “Maple Roasted Butternut Squash Soup”

Spaghetti Squash on the Half Shell

Spaghetti Squash is one of my favorite squash’s to cook with. When cooked, the squash has an incredibly unique texture that almost exactly replicates cooked pasta. I discovered this fruit (weird I know!) two years ago and haven’t stopped using it as a healthy alternative to its starchy counterpart. In this recipe, I replicated aContinue reading “Spaghetti Squash on the Half Shell”

Venison Mini Tacos

As we move into summer, sometimes it can be difficult to figure out light and summary ways to prepare venison. If you’re like Connor & I, venison in the winter means stews, pasta dishes, and roasts. However, as we transition into summer, it’s important to remember that venison is perfect for any season. My VenisonContinue reading “Venison Mini Tacos”

Balsamic Burrata Chicken

This was my first time trying burrata and I honestly don’t think it could’ve been more of a success. If you’ve never had it I HIGHLY recommend it! You can pair it with anything you like but I think it’s best incorporated with balsamic, basil, and tomatoes! This chicken recipe is absolutely to die for!Continue reading “Balsamic Burrata Chicken”

Uramaki Seafood Tempura Sushi Roll

Sushi absolutely was NOT something in my diet more than a couple years ago. I wouldn’t even look at it after a bad experience when I was little. However, I went to a happy hour at a sushi and steak house with my good friend while in college and she ordered shrimp tempura sushi. IContinue reading “Uramaki Seafood Tempura Sushi Roll”

Creamy Scallop Vegetable Penne

My favorite thing to do in the kitchen is just to see what I have for ingredients and then dream something up as I go. I love alfredo, but often times I find it too rich. I prefer to add tomatoes to help cut through the richness of the heavy cream and parmesan and that’sContinue reading “Creamy Scallop Vegetable Penne”
