Rugged Off-Grid/Homesteading

How to Cook on a Wood Burning Cook Stove (without going mental!)

When I think about things like living off the grid or homesteading, an old wood burning cook stove comes to mind, right away.  I couldn’t live the way I do without one. “The focus of my Ultra-Rugged kitchen!” Some of my fondest memories of when I was a kid were when I used to watch my Grandmother cooking on the old wood stove. There was something really special about coming down the stairs on the opening morning of duck season [Read More]

The Freighter Canoes of Webequie First Nation

“Isaiah Jacob has lived his entire life on the Winisk River and in a freighter canoe!” Since moving to Nova Scotia in 2014, I now know the thing I miss most about living in northwestern Ontario. The fishing trips… I had many great fishing trips with the “boys from up north,” as I call them, the Ojibwe. I’ve been to many of the fly-in reserves or “communities,” as we call them north of Thunder Bay and whenever I go, I [Read More]

The Bait Debate

“Corn and apples on the ground, 25 yards out.” Sitting about 17 feet up in a tree sure gives me, the hunter, a great view.  It also makes it a little less likely for the deer to see me, smell me or hear me.  And, when they come in to eat the apples and corn I put there for them, they are distracted by all the free food! Since the deer is distracted, it gives me a good opportunity to [Read More]

Creamy Turkey Rolls with Basil Pesto

This one of the items I made on the cooking show pilot we recently produced.  It is absolutely delicious!  I hope you don’t mind me bragging my ass off for a second or so…  this dish is crunchy, creamy and loaded with flavour, the way a good dish should be! Of course, this recipe will work with any white fowl and likely with the right cut of pork.  I used normally turkey because chicken, quail, grouse and pheasant are smaller making it [Read More]
