Idaho Archery Elk Camp

  As September approaches, my anticipation for one of my favorite parts of fall starts to rise until it takes over my thoughts. For the last few years and many years of my youth September was defined by a couple weeks at my Dad’s archery elk camp in Idaho. So many years and so many…

Centered

My life is chaotic. I bet your life is chaotic too at least at times. A good life full of the best blessings usually is wrought with chaos. The two must go hand in hand. Being a naturally quiet and reserved personality, I don’t handle chaos well. It makes me anxious and distracted even when…

Spicy Sriracha Elk Sausage Sandwiches

I like to get creative in the kitchen. Sometimes I come up with some really random dishes and sometimes I create something that is destined to become a household classic. This sandwich is just such a creation. I sent these spiced, cheesy concoctions to the guys at the local dojo and they were an instant…

Moments in the Woods of Opening Archery Weekend 2018

It is hunting season, or more specifically archery season. It opened up here in Montana last weekend and thanks to the generosity of my husband and mother in law I was able to sneak away for 3 hunts that weekend. As I headed out on the first hunt and the miles ticked away behind me…

Apple Bacon Wrapped Elk Tenderloin

One of the most prized cuts off the tasty elk is the tenderloin. These prime meats are so tender and delicious that I often have the packages sitting in the freezer until almost the following hunting season because I want to save them for something special. Today I decided to try to roast a whole…

Elk Street Tacos

I love Mexican food. In our house, not a week goes by that we don’t eat at least two Latin American inspired dinner dishes. The flavors and versatility just capture me and keep pulling me in! Obviously tacos come to mind when you think Mexican food but I like to switch up the traditional ingredients…
