It's been close to 2 years since I have blogged here on AR and I realized how much I missed sharing my sometimes crazy adventures in the kitchen so I decided to give it a 'go' again. It's a great way to share recipes and to  keep a food diary for my kiddos too. It' been a busy 2 yrs and I… MORE

About this Cook
I live in the northwoods of WI. I always have an ample supply of venison and fish in my freezer! Altho our garden season is a short one, I really like to have the whole family get involved in planting in the spring. I am married to my best friend and we have 2 kids. Hubby and I used to live in Minneapolis,MN but we prefer the rural life. The only things I miss about city living are the ethnic food stores and huge farmers markets...
My favorite things to cook
Canning is a passion! I often have 2 pressure cookers going and I have been known to pull "all nighters" when it's corn and tomato season.. I grill as often as possible and am really enjoying exploring new vegetarian recipes grilled or otherwise. During the winter, (about 7 months here ) I can usually be found making bread and cookies. I experiment with lots of different flavors when making yeast or sour dough breads. I try and not use commercial foods because I want to know EXACTLY what we are eating. My hubby will eat anything,my son is a vegetarian,and my daughter is a picky eater. One thing the whole family agrees on is SPICY!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Each year I can about 500 lbs of tomatoes making sauces and salsas. My kids love getting right in the middle of helping chop and dice. Christmas baking and candy making has become a family gathering time. Lots of fun and laughs in the kitchen !
My cooking triumphs
I was about 11 or 12 and I made fresh bread for when my grandparents came. They asked if it came from the bakery in town. I was thrilled! To this day I am not sure if they really didn't know but that statement all those years ago set me off on a good foot for bread making!
My cooking tragedies
I was pressure cooking venison ribs and the pressure release valve "blew" on my cooker! What a mess! I had greasy liquid everywhere. Anyone who has cooked venison ribs knows that the tallow (fat)hardens like wax when cool. I even had to repaint the ceiling from that disaster.... I also have a habit of melting rubber spatulas....

Grammy's Ice Box Cookies
I was so happy when I found this recipe! My mother made these every year for the holidays for as long as I can remember.I have searched her recipe boxes and couldn't find this recipe. She is now in a nursing home and asked me to make refrigerator cookies for her as a treat. After making numerous recipes from other cooks and not quite getting the cookie she remembers,this recipe has put a smile on my Mama's face! If you are looking for an original icebox cookie,this is the one! Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Tangy Mustard
HELLO magnificent flavor!!!! I couldn't wait 2 whole weeks to give it a taste so I dipped my spoon into it to try and ended up making sandwiches with it as soon as it came out of the blender. I used it on sharp cheddar and pastrami sandwiches and it held up very well against those strong flavored foods. My husband says we will NEVER purchase mustard again. I highly recommend making this if you enjoy a good hardy mustard!

Easy Canned Venison
We love canned venison and with several deer hunters in our house this is a great way to use some of the meat. People that swear they won't eat venison, love this and usually ask to take a jar home. :) This can be processed in quarts too. Just adjust your time in the pressure canner to 90 minutes.
