Hello from the Hunt Kitchen!

I was told I have lots of good recipes and that I should start a recipe blog, so here ya go! My fondest memories of home were sitting around to the table each evening with my family to eat a good home-cooked meal and I desire to keep that tradition going in my own home. I work hard to make sure my family has a good and balanced meal each day. I have tried each of these recipes and give them my approval.

I'm going to post my weekly menus as well, so feel free to mooch if you like. I do all my grocery shopping on Saturdays, so I plan my menus from Saturday to Friday. Friday is always Pizza Day; Saturday is usually open to either leftovers or some sort of burger. Wednesdays are usually leftovers as well - most of the recipes make more than enough for dinner for our family of 5, so we always have food to eat on Wednesdays without having to fix something new.

Please leave your comments on any recipe you try - even if it didn't work out! Bon Appetit!!

Teriyaki Chicken

3-4 Chicken breasts, cut into 1/2" strips
1 onion, chopped
2-3 (more or less, depending on your taste) cloves of garlic, minced
1 Tbs. (or so) Sesame seed oil
1/2 cup soy sauce
3/4 cup brown sugar
Cooked Rice

Heat oil in a large skillet and add onion and garlic, sauteing for 2-3 minutes. Add chicken and cook through. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan combine the soy sauce and brown sugar and heat until boiling. Add soy sauce mixture to chicken mixture and mix to coat chicken completely. Let simmer for a few minutes. Serve over rice with steamed veggies and soy sauce on the side.


1 lb. Ground Beef
1 package taco seasoning
Flour or corn tortillas

cheddar cheese
chopped tomatoes
black beans
sour cream

Brown beef; drain. Add taco seasoning and prepare according to package directions. Scoop onto tortillas and add toppings as desired.

Tip: We like to fry our tortillas in hot oil until they are crispy - works with flour and corn!

Shepherd's Pie

1 lb. ground beef
2 cans vegetable soup
1 can green beans, drained
4 servings mashed potatoes (real or instant)
Cheddar cheese

Brown the beef; drain. Add the vegetable soup without the water and heat through. Pour into a casserole dish. Top with the green beans. Spread the mashed potatoes on top and top with cheese. Cook in a 350 degree oven for 30 minutes. Enjoy!
