    Hi everyone, I hope that you are all doing well and enjoying our early winter weather! I had a little time today for a cooking project, so I made a trotter and ham hock terrine following a recipe by Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall of River Cottage cookbook fame.  If any of you are fans of...

    My first cotechino -- practice run for the holidays!

    Hi everyone, I've been fascinated with the idea of cotechino ever since I first heard about them.  I mean, its sausage, with pork skin!  What's not to love?  These are a cooked Italian sausage traditionally served at New Year's, so I'm out of season.  But I wanted to try out a recipe and work...

    Mixed Frozen Berry Crisp

    One of my favorite desserts to make in the winter and spring is a frozen berry crisp.  This is my go-to dessert whenever I have company, as it is easy to throw together in about 20 minutes, can bake in the oven while you are eating dinner, and never fails to get rave compliments. This recipe...

    My first Mortadella, and Muffuletta with Olive Salad

    Hi everyone, I have family coming to visit for Easter weekend, and I thought a nice fun picnic lunch for Saturday would be a Muffuletta and glass of wine down at the Riverfront Park.  Then I thought, even better, why not try making the Mortadella myself! So, here goes.  My first Mortadella! I...

    Beef Braciole and Marrow Butter

    Hi everyone, I had a couple of big round steaks that I needed to do something with, so I decided to make beef braciole.  The great thing about round steak is that they often come with a section of marrow bone attached, so I was also able to make some marrow butter to use later in the week...

    Beef Pub Bangers

    Ive been so busy recently between work and school that I haven't had time for making sausage or cooking anything interesting.  However, I had a day off today, so decided to make Beef Pub Bangers.  Nothing special, but I decided to do a post on it just to prove that I am still alive and kicking...

    Braised boneless deer neck stuffed with mushroom duxelles

    My husband got his first deer back in December, and we processed it ourselves on the kitchen counter. The cut that I have agonized over the most was the deer neck. Various long time hunters that we know swear that braised whole bone-in deer neck is the best roast on a deer, but the CDC...

    My first kielbasa! Thanks to Couger78, Shannon127, and Chef Jimmy J

    Smoked Ham Hocks with Pop's Brine, and Baked Beans

    I'm a big fan of homemade baked beans and usually make them with pig trotters and any ham or bacon trimmings I have lying around. A couple of weeks back I decided to try curing and smoking my own ham hocks to use in baked beans and red beans & rice. Pops very kindly fielded some questions from...

    My husband got his first deer!

    Just got a call from my husband, and he excitedly told me that he got his first deer today! It was a small spike whitetail, killed instantly by a shot through the shoulder/diaphragm area. Anyway, I'm pretty excited to have a chance to try out some venison recipes, especially venison sausage...

    Homemade Smoked Pimento Cheese

    In honor of my southern roots and family flying up from Alabama for Thanksgiving, I made some homemade pimento cheese this morning using some applewood-smoked Tillamook Vintage White that I cold smoked about a month ago. Earlier this summer I roasted a bunch of local pimento peppers, peeled...

    My duck post (Final): duck prosciutto, duck confit, and seared duck breast with cherry port wine sau

    About 14 months ago, in a moment of hubris and stupidity, I purchased 2 butchered ducks from a local farmer. Those ducks have sat in my freezer since then. They terrified me. I could hear them laughing at me, quacking sinisterly, every time I opened up my freezer. They even got other cuts of...

    anyone use a Big or Little Chief Electric Smoker for smoking sausages??

    Hi folks, I have a Smokin-Tex electric smoker (a Cook Shack knock-off) that I have been using with an AMNPS for my smoking needs. However, I've been very frustrated using it to smoke sausage, because the temperature swings are too big and uncontrollable....I end up with rendered fat, or...

    Chaurice Sausage with Pork Crackling Brussel Sprouts

    Like a lot of other fellow SMF folks, I felt like making sausage this weekend. A recipe I haven't made in a while is chaurice sausage. I'm not sure what source this recipe came from originally, but it was passed on to me by a local chef who occasionally teaches classes on sausage making. This...

    Ham and Trotter Baked Beans, from scratch, w/Q-View

    The weather turned cold and rainy this weekend, which puts me in the mood for a fire in the fireplace, soft lighting, a glass of wine, and....baked beans! This is a great dish to use up leftover bits of cured or smoked pork, any pork bones you have lying around, and definitely a trotter if you...

    Chicken-Fried Round Steak w/Chanterelle Mushroom Sauce

    Nothing new or creative here, but who doesn't love a good chicken-fried steak? This is a meal that my husband and I have been enjoying weekly while the chanterelle mushrooms are available. Start with a tenderized round steak (a.k.a. cube steak), or a regular round steak that you beat the crap...

    Did anybody else lose a bunch of points??

    Hi, Just wondering if anybody else has noticed that they lost some points in the last day or two? I'm not sure if it is just me and I got dinged for something, or if something changed system-wide. Just wondering..... Hope everybody has a great Friday and weekend!! Clarissa
