A little about me... After years of cooking big game, upland game and waterfowl, I found success in crafting recipes in the kitchen that use simple steps and everyday ingredients. I hope that you will use my recipes to experiment, adapt, change and inspire others to find respect and passion for any harvests brought home to the table.” — Celebrate the Harvest.

What Are People Saying…

“Excellent recipes!! I gave your cookbook out as Christmas presents this year. I have been so excited to try all your different recipes. I was having a hard time cooking with antelope, but your recipes made for some great meals. The three game chili was a hit with my family and at work!” – Casey P

“Kristy!! Just wanted to let you know we made your elk back strap blackberry red wine meal for our thanksgiving dinner this year and honestly it was more popular than the turkey!!  Thank you so much for your great recipes!!” – Warmly, Tracy K

“We ordered your cookbook and love it:) You did a wonderful job!” – Laura K

“I made the Triple Wild Game chili with elk, antelope, venison, and a pound of super lean beef to make it a little more meaty. I also used a blackberry wine in mine instead of the traditional red to give it a little sweet with the spice. It has won first place in two different chili cook-offs I have taken it to.” – Charles W.

“Another GREAT recipe of yours that we have thoroughly enjoyed! The variation I tried was to use blue posole instead of the cannellini beans and it worked wonderfully. I have to send kudos for the elk green chili as well. With our fresh-frozen Hatch chilis, it was estupendo! Your cookbooks have made their way into both our daughter’s (and husbands’) hands along with a number of fellow islanders here in the Pacific NW. Everyone is thoroughly enjoying exploring just how great wild game can be via your recipes.” Happy Holidays to you and your family! – Bill

“Kristy: Good morning. We had a great duck hunt at our club last Saturday. Ducks got cleaned and bloody mary’s all around. What to have for dinner for 12 hunters. So out comes your website for ideas. Duck Chow Mein comes up. Our cook said we had all of the stuff to make it. So with more bloodies and cigars. We got it done and it was hit out of the park.” – Thanks, Gary
