Growing up, having venison for dinner never occurred in my household. Common meals in my house were beef, chicken, and fish, so that is what I learned to cook. So it has been quite an experience for me being married to a hunter and having a freezer full of venison meat. I didn't know where to start. I didn't have any recipes for venison, and I knew I couldn't call and ask my mother for advice on preparing it since she's never cooked with it either.
