Interestingly, there was not a general category for meats, so I added this page as a catch all. Our culture has changed so much that we now base our meals around meats. But definitely look outside the box when searching for recipes with meats. For instance, try vegetables for meat/vegetable combinations. Or try soups, sandwiches, and even toast.


In the 1938 Cole Porter song, “My Heart Belongs to Daddy” — sang by the beautiful and talented Mary Martin — one of the lines is “If I invite a boy some night, To dine on my fine Finnan Haddie…”. I thought she was singing “my fine Finland Haddie” thinking it was Haddock, of course. I was partially right but I couldn’t be more wrong about the source of that Haddock! It’s actually a Scottish dish also called Finnan Haddock or Findrum Speldings. It is cold-smoked with green wood and peat. It is mentioned in a couple songs, according to Wikipedia, and in the song mentioned above it has a double meaning (naughty!).

For those of you with a Scandinavian heritage, I’m sure you’ll find the herring recipes particularly interesting.

There was not a specific category for poultry in the recipe box, so I have tried to collect a few from other sections. Be sure to search on “chicken” when looking for specific recipes.
