I write. I fish. I dig earth, raise plants, live politics and kill wild animals. I drink bourbon, wear seersucker or Wranglers with equal aplomb and wish I owned a farm.

This is one of my favorite things to make with acorns, and for those of you who can’t do wheat, it’s gluten free. My acorn soup really shines with the garnishes of sour cream, slices of grouse (or chicken), and some fancy oil.
Deviled eggs are one of those foods I have a hard time controlling myself with. I’ve been known to eat a dozen at a sitting, and even though I know I’ll feel ill afterwards, I can’t stop eating them. These deviled eggs, made with smoked salmon, are especially good.
My third book, Buck, Buck, Moose – a cookbook dedicated to venison in all its forms — is almost ready. But I need your help to make it a reality. We’re doing a Kickstarter campaign to raise finds to publish the book, and everyone who preorders gets us closer.
Roast woodcock with a sweet-tart sauce of Michigan apples and Michigan-made vinegar, served on toast. It’s pure Michigan, and I wish I could get back there to hunt timberdoodles again soon…
