Rosemary Venison Skewers with Horsy Dip

Here’s one for you hunters out there. A friend of ours gave us the venison…and after trying this, we may have to get more into hunting, or finding good hunters with extra to share. Haven’t been much since we…

Paleo Chicken Pot Pie

Good old fashioned (Paleo) chicken pot pie. It’s the Southern food I grew up on and am most comforted by. I grew up in a household where momma made just about everything from scratch. Her cooking was pretty good…
