Welcome to Peak to Plate. If you’ve found your way here, you’re either a loving family member or friend trying to support me in my new adventure or you’re looking for new ways to prepare the wild game sitting in your freezer. Either way, I’m happy you’ve found me and I hope you enjoy these recipes as much as I’ve enjoyed creating them for you!
My name is Annie and I'm a Registered Dietitian working and living in Wyoming with my husband, our 2 sons, and 2 Labrador Retrievers. I was born and raised in Wyoming. While I grew up surrounded by mountains, I never fully appreciated them until I met my husband. Through our years together I have found new ways to fully embrace the Wyoming lifestyle including hunting and fishing for our own meat. Harvesting animals and seeing the process from start to finish (Peak to Plate, if you will) is truly a rewarding experience and gives a newfound respect for every meal created from that animal.
Food has been the center of my life for as long as I can remember. My mom instilled a passion in me to cook and feed people from a very young age. I have so many amazing memories of her allowing me to create and make messes in the kitchen while supporting me every step of the way. This love of food and desire to share it with others inspired me to become a Registered Dietitian. I believe that any food can fit into a healthy lifestyle, but there has to be a balance somewhere. While I might throw in a few nutrition tidbits here and there, you won’t find me advocating for any specific diets here. What you will find are delicious wild game recipes (and others too!) that encompass a wide variety of ingredients, flavors, and cultures that I hope will inspire you to look at cooking wild game in a new light.
Food is my language, the mountains are my home, and sharing with you is my purpose. Thank you for visiting my creative space. Where will you go to fill your plate?
