Weeknights are busy; chicken fried steaks are fast. If you’ve got minute steaks in your freezer this is a great place to use them. And while I love using bison steaks, you can totally use any sort of lean, quick cooking steak you’ve got – moose... more

Everyone has that dish that they always order when they find it on a menu – and for the lovely man that keeps my freezer well stocked with beautiful wild game, that dish is baked spaghetti. To be honest, baked spaghetti makes me think of some sort... more

It’s still a bit too cold to grill – at least for me it is. So these burgers are made to cook in a pan, which means that you can stuff them to the gills with cheese and wrap them with bacon without having to use any sort of toothpick... more

This is classic Japanese comfort food, exactly what you would expect from an all-night diner in Tokyo. Hambagu is just a simply seasoned burger served with gravy over hot rice. It’s simple and comforting and just a tiny bit different than a hot... more

Nikujaga is a traditional Japanese style stew, usually made with thinly-sliced beef and potatoes and seasoned with sweetened soy sauce. While this version is more of an homage to the classic – substituting bison for beef and squash for potatoes... more

Filipino spaghetti is the perfect food; it’s meaty, savory, sweet and cheesy. And most importantly it’s filled with hot dogs. Whitehorse is lucky enough to have access to lots of great Filipino ingredients on our grocery store shelves, you can... more

One of my favourite things about living in the Yukon is being able to eat wild game. Like, a lot of wild game. And I know that many of you are in the same glorious position – so here is my attempt to give some of the hunters out there some recipes... more

The first time I saw this sign, I had to stop and pull over on the side of the road to make sure I had read it correctly. It was early spring in 2012 and I was travelling up the Alaska Highway for the first of what would be uncountable times... more

In our exploration of colourful collective nouns used to describe groups of animals, we have learned that many of these terms have come to us from the Late Middle Ages, more than 500 years ago. Some of these quaint words were collected in the Book... more

Steamed buns filled with a variety of meat and vegetables are a dim sum classic. This version is bison filled and spiced with ginger, garlic and chili paste but season the filling to your liking if you’re in the mood for something a bit more... more

People driving down the highway may see a few bison, and never realize that this animal was at one time on the very edge of extinction. The bison made some people extremely wealthy, others kept some people from starvation, some were shot for... more

Why have I never written about hunting before? Maybe it’s because writing about an experience makes it more real. In the face of hunting, that is hard for me to accept. I do love my hunting partner, my husband Don, for it. He, too, is quite... more

There's something special about waking up in a cabin with a bunch of peers who all want the same thing: to catch a bison. It puts a goal in everyone's head, a sense of unity. There is also the excitement and thrill that this could be the day, the day more

When serving bison, it is ideal if the first meal you make is raved about, because if it isn't you'll have some difficulty serving the remaining 200-300 pounds in the freezer. But with a younger family, you should have no problem using up to a 100 po more

I suppose by now some hunter has field-dressed a large wood bison by themselves, but I'll bet they never want to do it again. Mature bison are very large animals, and even when they are broken down into individual parts, they might be twice as... more
