Garlic Green Beans

In addition to the Shrimp & Broad Noodles recipe I’ve posted, this is another inspiration dish from Empire Chinese Kitchen. Their garlic green bean appetizer is to die for and since the restaurant is over an hour away from my house, it was time to try to replicate it. After a couple tries, I thinkContinue reading “Garlic Green Beans”

Creamy Mac N’ Cheese

I’ve grown up eating this version of mac n’ cheese and so much nostalgia hits me whenever I take a bite of this dish. A staple in my house growing up, I wouldn’t dare try another recipe. I know many versions of mac n’ cheese with breadcrumbs on top, but mum never added them, andContinue reading “Creamy Mac N’ Cheese”

Brown Butter Seared Scallops

I always used to prefer fried seafood until I tried brown butter seared scallops at a Lobster & Ale restaurant I used to waitress at. I’ve been obsessed with them ever since, so much so that I knew I had to recreate them at home, and for half the price! Here’s my take on theseContinue reading “Brown Butter Seared Scallops”

Cheddar Cheese Spread

My mom used to make this cheese spread for special occasions and I always looked forward to it. She’s made a few different variations over the years, but my favorites are the Original & Charred Jalapeno versions. They are the perfect addition to any charcuterie board and even better spread onto a crisp cracker withContinue reading “Cheddar Cheese Spread”

Teriyaki Moose Meatballs

I was inspired to try out teriyaki meatballs when I saw a recipe along the same lines using ground turkey. Our freezer is full of wild game and right now we have plentiful amounts of ground moose. Connor & I don’t buy meat from the grocery store, so we have to use what we haveContinue reading “Teriyaki Moose Meatballs”

Shrimp & Broad Noodles

Asian food is by far one of my favorite cuisines and I’m always experimenting in ways I can make “take-out style” dishes at home. Whenever my oldest sister visits Maine we ALWAYS stop for take-out at Empire Chinese Kitchen in Portland. They have the best food, but one of our favorite dishes is called “BeefContinue reading “Shrimp & Broad Noodles”

Maple Bourbon Porcupine Burgers

The first time I gave porcupine a try, I was less than pleased. Porcupines are herbivores which means that they feed on plants and trees. During the winter, they feed off the bark and needles of conifer trees which can leave the meat with a “piney” taste. My first attempt at cooking porcupine looked aContinue reading “Maple Bourbon Porcupine Burgers”

Wild Turkey Sloppy Joes

I’m always trying to invent new ways that I can use the leg meat on wild turkeys, so when our friend Will came over for dinner and suggested sloppy joes, the gears started turning in my head. I realized this would be a great way to use the leg meat. Slow cooked for 8 hoursContinue reading “Wild Turkey Sloppy Joes”

Wild Turkey Gnocci Soup

Opening day for fall turkey in Maine is September 19th and I couldn’t be more excited. As I continue to say, wild turkey is my favorite game meat and I love that I’m just scratching the surface on ways to prepare it. The legal bag limit in our zone in Maine is 5 turkeys perContinue reading “Wild Turkey Gnocci Soup”
