Venison & Sweet Potato Curry

When left to my own devices, down to a few ingredients and a rumbling belly, I tend to gravitate towards dishes with either a Mexican/Latin taste, or something Indian. Making a curry is something I definitely don’t do even close to as good as my local Indian restaurant does, but the warm, spicy flavors are definitely a regular in my own cooking.

This dish was thrown together early one morning. I think the first time I made it, we were expecting a storm with strong winds, and so I decided to do a dump-cooking style dish on our wood stove, this way dinner was something I wouldn’t have to worry about.  Continue reading “Venison & Sweet Potato Curry”

Anyway, this recipe is relatively quick, is cooked in one pot, and is simply to die for. It’s rich, delicious, creamy, warm and filling – I know, not the type of recipe you’re usually looking for in April! But since Winter refuses to let go here in New England, we are still enjoying our hearty recipes, this one especially. Every time I make it, my husband asks when we will be having it again before his bowl is even empty! Continue reading “Recipe: Swedish Meatballs”
