These egg rolls would make great party food, and if you have the time to make a double batch, freeze a few for a day when you don’t feel like cooking. If you have a deep fryer and feel like firing it up feel free, but cooking these in a hot oven... more

Having grown up in the 1930 and 40s, I was used to homemade food such as pancakes, bread and fresh-from-the-garden homemade soups. Nothing was prepared in cans from the grocery store that had sat on the shelves for months. The only thing spread on... more

Bear is a controversial meat. Unlike most other game, hunters aren’t forced to keep any of the meat and can hike out the pelt and skull leaving the rest of the animal in the woods for scavengers. There also seems to be some sort of stigma about... more

One pan meals are always the goal, if I have to break out a second pan I’m disappointed in myself. Weekdays are long, take-out gets expensive, frozen pizzas can be a bit lackluster. Pork loins, however, cook fast, are inexpensive, and happen to be... more

There’s a lot to love about fake (imitation might be a better word, but let’s be honest) crab. It is made from pollock, which is a very sustainable fish, it is inexpensive especially compared to the “real” counterpart and it is delicious. more
