Dried Cherries and Apple Pie

The tartness of the cherries is mellowed by the sweetness of apples.

Jo's Mountain Mush

Rating: 4.27 stars
A jumbled, filling breakfast created when I was camping in Montana. Originally the hot dogs were roasted over a fire while the potato pieces were foil wrapped and roasted in the embers and then added into a pan of beans. However, it works equally well when cooked in a kitchen! Serve with crusty bread on the side and fresh shredded cheese on top.

A hunter's dinner, rich and hearty perfect for fall just before turkey day. Any game fowl can be used. Garnish serving platter with parsley and cherry tomatoes for a nice presentation. Serve gravy on the side.

Slow Cooker Venison Roast

Venison roast slow cooked with onion, creamy mushroom soup, a dab of this and a spice of that. Simple, tasty way to enjoy that game meat.

Roasted Duck

I made this last year out of the blue, and my whole family enjoyed it. We had never had duck before, and it was a nice exchange for the traditional turkey. We served it with all the usual side dishes.

Fennel in Wine and Honey

A great side dish for fennel lovers, originally from a friend in Israel. I have used water instead of broth, with some added salt and seasoning. I have also replaced the mustard seed with regular mustard.
