Recipes

Our goal is to fill this page with some of our favorite recipes and kitchen projects.  Some of the recipes will be family recipes, that we have been enjoying for years, and new ones that we think you’ll like.  My wife loves to find recipes and “tweak” them and I get to be her guinea pig!  I know, it’s a dirty job, but somebody has to do it.  I will also share some of my favorite wild game recipes and a few home brewed beer recipes as well.  Between the two of us, there should be something for everybody.  We will share some of the tips, tricks and methods you need to successfully create them.  This will include several appliances that help make many of these recipes a breeze.

Kitchen Projects

We will also highlight some of the projects we’ve accomplished in our kitchen.  Many of the projects can be done by the average homeowner, with a little research.  We’ll show you the tools needed for these projects and hopefully inspire you to spruce up your kitchen.
