Roasted Winter Vegetable Soup

Rating: Unrated
This is a tasty and satisfying pureed soup that makes the best of the humble produce that winter farmers' markets have to offer.

Excellent Venison Soup

Rating: Unrated
This soup is outstanding and a wonderful use of ground venison or elk, which is much better for you than ground beef. It also uses some veggies that we don't use very often, if ever! Here, it all comes together deliciously.

I make these pasties about once a month for my family and extended family. I weigh my ingredients for accuracy and flavor.

Instant Pot® Rutabaga Mash

Rating: Unrated
This lower-carb alternative to mashed potatoes can easily be made in a fraction of the time using a pressure cooker. The mash has a nice creamy and chunky texture, which complements any meat. I especially enjoy it with corned beef.

Cawl (Traditional Welsh Broth)

Rating: Unrated
The recipe that follows is one that is popular with, and derived from, the local farming community of Cardiganshire. There are regional variations throughout Wales as to what meat is used; some use Pork or Mutton we use Shin Beef. The quantities used here are based on my own requirements for two to three days, as this soup is one that improves on subsequent re-heating. Serve with lightly buttered bread and a good mature Cheddar cheese

Sean's Mommy's Roasted Root Vegetables

Rating: Unrated
I wanted to do something different as a vegetable side dish. It was Thanksgiving, so I got a bunch of root vegetables and roasted them. They were a hit and are now a staple at our holiday table. I cook them during the year sometimes, as well.

Rutabaga Stew

Rating: Unrated
My mom has been making the stew for many years and it is by far the BEST stew I have ever tasted. It is hearty, filling, and inexpensive not to mention extremely delicious and fairly easy to make. The hardest part and the most time-consuming part for this stew is preparing the vegetables. I chop and dice all my vegetables by hand and so it can consume a little bit more time, but it is very much worth the extra time it takes. Pork, beef, or venison are all good in this recipe, too.

Pie crust pastries filled with potato, onion, rutabaga and pork, then buttered and baked to a golden finish. Very easy to make. These freeze really well for a quick lunch. Use diced beef instead of pork, if desired.
