    Stir Fried Eggplant with Ginger, Sesame and Steak

    Eggplant is a great way to bulk out a stir fry with something meaty and satisfying that’s not actually meat. Japanese eggplants are long and thin and tend to not have the bitter under notes that European eggplant might. They do a great job of... more

    Camp Fire Cake

    Sometimes, you just need cake. I've baked this from scratch before, but this is the one time I'm going to advocate boxed over homemade: when you're deep in the backcountry it's just too much fuss to pack in all the things you need to make a decent... more

    Salmon, Salmon, Salmon

    Many household freezers have some – or even a lot – of salmon waiting their turn on the menu. Hopefully all our salmon is wild salmon and not the farmed Atlantic Salmon that is so common in stores these days. Farmed salmon looks and sounds to be... more

    Cookies

    Sausage Stuffed Squid with Creamy Polenta

    Eggs Baked in Peppers

    To be honest, I generally fill these peppers with chopped SPAM. There’s something about the salty, fattiness of tinned meat that just shines in this dish. And what you’re looking for in a simple meal like this is something that very simply just... more
