About this Cook
I am a gardener and like recipes that allow me to incorporate the fresh produce into them. I also hunt deer, so venison is a staple as well in many recipes which I make.

Pumpkin, Sweet Potato, and Leek Soup
Unlike many other reviewers, I followed the recipe with the minor exception of using lowfat cream. It is excellent. I like a little spice in my soups, so I might toss in one of my homegrilled chipotles in my next batch. I grew my own leeks and they vary greatly in size but I would estimate that if using store bought leeks, use two that are at least 2 inches in diameter if smaller, use accordingly more. Basically it appeared to me that the mass of leek and pumpkin should be about equal!

Bagels II
I followed all of the specific details, however, I used a combination of one half whole wheat flour, oat flour and hazlenut flour. The bagels came out perfect, though a little dry. I'll try again with white bread flour for about half the flour content and add some nuts and raisins. Trying to come up with a health alternative to the store bought bagels. This recipe worked well as a base for experimentation.

Deer Poppers
Clearly for the "don't like the taste of deer" crowd. I would suggest any more subtle marinade than italian dressing. The venison and jalapenos work, the bacon and italian dressing smother the deer steak. If you don't like the taste of venison, eat beef or pork! A great waste of good venison.
