HARVEST BOWL WITH TURKEY

HARVEST BOWL WITH TURKEY

Whew! It’s been a hot minute. The camp has been closed up and I’ve been sulking here on mainland for about two and a half weeks. I’m not one to fangirl over fall– legit don’t think I’ve ever ordered a Pumpkin Spice Latte. But I do love a good mushroom hunt, and we’ve had a…

By Alyssa, October 18, 2018 "When a mysterious illness sidelined my original plans in life, I packed up and moved home to Kenora, Ontario, Canada. With little money, the inability to work, and a whole lot to figure out, I moved into my family’s cabin on Lake of the Woods. So these are the moments, the recipes, the occasional heartache, and the adventures of a life starting over on the little island between Fox and Hare." Between Fox and Hare is the on-going saga of a 20-something Canadian whose heart is anchored in Lake of the Woods. With her love of all things wild, Alyssa chronicles her journey learning and developing her skills in hunting, fishing, foraging, and outdoor cooking. Providing culinary tips and recipes, a peek into the Northern lifestyle, and the insight of a life lived with a chronic illness, Alyssa tells her story of putting back the pieces against the backdrop of the beautiful Boreal forest. Alyssa can be found during the open-water season on the unnamed island between Fox and Hare with her two dogs, Storm and Lily. She spends the frozen months in the little city of Kenora, mostly in the kitchen, and enjoys winter hiking and ice-fishing excursions when the temperature hasn’t dropped below -30°C.

MAPLE WHISKY ROASTED ALMONDS

Since this is the first weekend of Fall and we’ve had our first snowfall, I guess it’s safe to say that Summer is over. Fine. Whatever. I’m always the last to admit it– the final one desperately holding on to the last remnants of summer. But with snow on September 22nd, even I will freely…

HERB-CRUSTED RACK OF LAMB

HERB-CRUSTED RACK OF LAMB

Ahh. Summer at the lake. Where the beer is cold, the fish are biting, and gas is $1.60 a litre. I wanna do this forever. Let’s quit our jobs and move here and never leave. I don’t want summer to end! Your liver and wallet would probably disagree with you, Becky. But I’m not one to ruin…

BUTTERY STEAK TOAST

BUTTERY STEAK TOAST

Screw avocado toast. Life’s short. Go for the steak. This summer has been nothing short of insane. Between my dad having a spinal cord stroke, a minor condo fire days later, and hitting a bear with the brand new boat, it’s been a summer to remember. Let’s start with the bear. To set the scene a little,…
