My Favorite Herbs

It's getting to be the time of year to plan my garden. This means I will be planning to grow the herbs I like to use when cooking my venison. My favorite herbs are thyme and sage. I also really enjoy using thyme with mushrooms and carrots so they work together in many of my recipes to produce an amazing trio of taste!

If you click on the "View PDF" for that book you can access the information in that booklet for FREE. You can also order the title if you like.

I have been working on promoting my book and am really looking forward to answering your questions and seeing where your interests lie.

Food Preservation

I had a wonderful time attending a food preservation course for three days this week. There were 20 women in attendance. It is making me hungry for canning some fresh venison this fall!

Lots of Hungry Deer

The snow cover here is almost gone, and the deer are really hitting the cut corn fields pretty hard around here. Still seeing many on the hill behind our house. Can't wait until I can get out and shoot my bow.

Game Day Venison!

I am gearing up for the big game. Won't tell you who I am routing for, but I am looking forward to some good friends, some good game, and some good venison. I am going to make some appetizers this year with burger. What game will you be bringing to the table?
