About

Howdy! I am Amanda…and I am a deer meat-aholic. 

My goal is to educate people by sharing simple deer meat recipes. I want to show the world that deer meat is delicious and there's more than one way to fix it. Many people think deer meat is only fixed a few ways--the most common is in a roast or rolled in flour and fried.

Believe it or not, a lot of people think deer meat is gross. I use to be one of those people. My husband and I started working our own meat up (aka…processing it) and it was completely different! If deer processing is not done correctly, it’s not going to taste good. I can promise you that!

My husband and I put a lot of care into our deer meat, and I fell in love with it. Then I started searching for as many deer recipes as I could find. I honestly couldn’t find very many, and the ones I could find seemed so complicated. They required 20+ ingredients, took hours to fix, and the final product was just okay.

I got discouraged, but then I decided to think outside the box. I took ordinary recipes and added deer meat and maybe added a few other ingredients. I also came up with my own deer recipes. I had trials and errors, but I fell in love with deer meat even more and I think you will, too.

FYI – I am now a publisher on Yummly and it will help me if you use the Yum button to save my recipes to your personal recipe box.  All you need to do is click the big orange and white “Y” at the bottom of each post, where the share buttons are, and it will save the recipe to your box.

If you don’t already have a Yummly account, it’s free and you can find and save lots of great recipes. Click the Yummly logo below to see my profile.

The more Yums – the more eyes on my deer recipes.
