Simple Cinnamon Rolls

Simple Cinnamon Rolls

When we hear “cinnamon rolls,” we often think about those huge, super sticky, super friggin’ awesome cinnamon rolls that are about the size of your goddam head. I make them too sometimes, but if you want to make something smaller, easier and faster and… a little different, make some pie dough and roll it out thinly. Then, spread butter on the whole thing… then, brown sugar and finally, cinnamon. Don’t use too much butter though because it’ll leak out in [Read More]

Pork Tenderloin (or wild boar) with Apples & Pears

Pork Tenderloin (or wild boar) with Apples & Pears

Pork is one of the few meats that I buy from the store these days.  If there were any wild hogs around here, I’d likely never buy pork… but there isn’t.  And, I just friggin’ love pork! Next year, I plan to raise two hogs here at my house.  (No, not IN my house.  AT my house, outside.)  This recipe would easily work with wild boar and if you’ve never eaten it, try it.  If you have none in your [Read More]

Make Yourself a REAL Oatmeal Breakfast

Make Yourself a REAL Oatmeal Breakfast

I guess it’s reasonable to agree that most people run a little short of minutes before rushing off to work in the morning.  I get it.  But, for chrise-sake, if you’re going to have some oatmeal for breakfast, stop buying that dog shit that comes in the package! There’s been a lot of talk in the last decade or two about the health benefits of eating things like oatmeal, bran, rye, along with other common grains.  They tell us that oatmeal [Read More]

Keep Those Old Mason Jars

Keep Those Old Mason Jars

Of course, you wouldn’t just start throwing Mason jars away.  They can be re-sterilized and use again and again.  The ones I really like have the one-piece lids.  Not true Mason jars, but they’re great for storing your spices, dry herbs and your baking ingredients. I had a hard time finding Mason jars with one-piece lids in any store, so I did some scouting around with some of my friends who don’t cook “quite as much”’ as I do.  Some [Read More]

Quality Hearing Products Provide Hearing Safety When You Go Hunting!

Hi, my name is John O’Connor.  I am a father, outdoorsman and passionate about living a healthy lifestyle.  Over the past few years I have become more and more interested in hearing loss.  My father and grandfathers, who are and were all hunters, are affected by hearing loss.  I feel that there is a general lack of understanding around the issue and it is our job to spread awareness where we can.  Check out my new blog at bloggingwjohno.blogspot.com!

Ojibwe and Cree History & Culture

Ojibwe and Cree History

“Veteran guide, George Whitehead, from Webequie First Nation guiding RD” In 2014, I made a big change in my life. I moved from Thunder Bay, Ontario to Nova Scotia. I’d spent 25 years in the “Lakehead” and I sure do miss the place sometimes. (I don’t miss the goddam 40 below zero temperatures in the winter though!) The fishing and hunting is spectacular there and so are the people. One of the things I miss most is going “up north” [Read More]
