Cast Iron Seared Dove & Creamy Grits

Dove season is upon us again (cue “It’s the most wonderful time of the year” theme song).

Venison and Cauliflower Italian Bake

Finally! Day three of my one roast, three recipe challenge to myself. Minimal ingredients packed with lots of flavor, this dish was inspired by my craving for lasagna without the time to make one.
