Not-So-Rich Alfredo

I think we all know now that one of my favorite dishes is pasta. I LOVE alfredo but I often find it too heavy and rich, especially for a summer-time dish. However, by adding in tomatoes, the acidity cuts through the fats in alfredo and can feel much lighter than its traditional counterpart. My go-toContinue reading “Not-So-Rich Alfredo”

Prawn Pomodoro

I love to experiment with different pasta dishes and as we transition into summer, I also like to also transition my dishes into lighter, fresher forms. For winter pasta dishes, I’ll start out with a heavy tomato base, but this Pomodoro has fresh tomatoes, shallots, basil, shrimp, and parmesan cheese as the star ingredients. PerfectContinue reading “Prawn Pomodoro”

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”

Venison Taquitos w/ Avocado Cream

I’m constantly trying to come up with new recipes that involve venison because it’s easy to get tired of it if you’re not rotating dishes. Today I was thinking: “I make tacos with venison, why not try another Mexican dish.” Trying to think of something easy, I thought, let’s try taquitos! Serves:  2+/- –  Cooktime: 40 minutesContinue reading “Venison Taquitos w/ Avocado Cream”

This roast was pull-off-the-bone delicious! Wow, Connor actually dreamt this recipe up, and it turned out so good, I had to post.

Give this a try and let me know howContinue reading “Tender Crock-Pot Venison Roast”

Cooking with Venison…

A couple weeks ago, Connor shot his first deer in Northern Maine and we were able to take home about 110 pounds of meat! I’m so proud of him and thankful that we’re fortunate enough to be able to eat something directly from the wild. When purchasing meat from the grocery store, it’s difficult toContinue reading “Cooking with Venison…”
