A few weeks ago, a local association called GoOFY (Growers of Organic Food Yukon) held an event about nose-to-tail eating—eating every bit of an animal that is harvested. Which is not only sound ethical practice, but a really sustainable and... more

My fridge is always a bit on the sad and empty side. I’d rather have to get a bit creative with empty cupboards than to risk ingredients going slimy in my crisper. Potatoes and onions are mercifully long-lasting, and it’s always good to have a few... more

Pork and bourbon and peaches—cooked until soft, rich and sweet, with just a bit of acidity. This smashed pork is perfect along with some roasted potatoes or plain white rice. Although, to me, it makes a perfect open-faced sandwich on a toasted... more

These are a great, quick side for camping. The balsamic and olive oil mix does double duty as a salad dressing—and bacon cooked on a campfire is one of the best parts of summer. Make sure to wrap your bundles tightly and skewer each end of the... more

One of the best parts of mass-produced breads, like hotdog and burger buns, is their super-squishy, cake-like quality. That makes them a great ingredient to serve as both dinner and dessert on your camping trips. more

Admittedly, this is more of a really delicious idea than a recipe. My one suggestion is to make sure you don’t leave the bananas on the fire too long; they will get watery if you forget about them for an hour or more (I know from experience)... more
