Not looking for anything in particular? Check out my favorite recipes, or see what Tom enjoys the most!


There are (I know it's hard to believe) people who do not like the taste of wild game. Just to let you know that most of the recipes can also be used with beef, chicken, domestic turkey or pork.

There will also be lots of recipes that are non-game or fish so check back on a regular basis. I'll be adding some canning recipes that I use also.

Thanks and enjoy the recipes!!

Venison Chili
By Colleen Knapp
One of my favorites for the deer hunting season is chili. We usually have a couple of extra mouths to feed at lunch and it is nice to have something all done and warming in the crockpot.

2# ground venison (I have also used ground elk)
1 pkg. Carroll Shelby's Chili Kit
1 8oz can tomatoe sauce
2 cans stewed tomatoes or 2 jars of your own stewed tomatoes
1 med. onion - chopped
1/2 tsp. minced garlic
1 jar chopped jalapenos, can use dried or fresh
Shredded cheese

In a medium frying pan, brown the ground venison, onions, & garlic. Drain any excess fluids. Add the large spice packet from the Chili Kit. Mix well.

Put this mixture into your crockpot. Add the tomatoe sauce and the stewed tomatoes. Depending on your personal taste, you can add the small packet of cayenne pepper from the Chili Kit or chopped jalapenos from a jar, dried or fresh.

Keep warm in the crockpot until lunchtime.

Neither Tom or I like alot of spice, so the cayenne pepper is eliminated, and for the guests I put out bowls of chopped onions, chopped jalapenos and, of course, shredded cheese.

I will usually serve warm corn bread with the chili. That recipe will be posted next.
