About Binky’s Culinary Carnival
Hi! I’m Beth Neels, aka Binky. I wanted to give you a little information about Binky’s Culinary Carnival! Firstly, Welcome! Thanks for stopping by!
We live on a 30 acre farm in rural Upstate NY with my husband, son and 3 dogs. We live in the middle of apple country so there are always fresh fruits and vegetables available, seasonally, just down the road.
I love to cook! Any kind of cooking. From baking to canning to back yard parties, you name it. So I thought ‘Carnival’ indicated an appropriate conglomeration of treats.
Farm To Table
I have a bachelor’s degree from Cornell University in Ornamental Horticulture. My knowledge of plants is used to grow a plethora of great fruits and vegetables in the summer. I begin planning my garden for the year in January and then start planting the seeds in February and March, that will end up in my garden in May!
If you are interested in planting a garden of your own, don’t miss my How to Plant a Vegetable Garden Series! There are 5 detailed guides to help you with planning, planting, maintaining and even harvesting your garden too! The first part is Planning Your Vegetable Garden.
From my garden I make all sorts of delicious recipes! There is a huge canning section on BCC. Some of the most popular canning recipes are Pickled Peppers, Fermented Hot Sauce, Strawberry Jam and Blackberry Syrup.
We also have lots of Summer picnics on the patio so the Grilled Brie with Balsamic Strawberries, Pea Salad and Corn and Black Bean Salsa recipes come in handy too. They are all made with local ingredients. They will be very handy, for you, when planning a summer get together with friends and family! See my “Farm To Table” section for more!
Field To Table
My boys, husband and 2 sons, love to hunt. We all love to fish (I can outfish the guys on a good day! 🙂 ) For this reason, I also have an entire section of the blog that focuses on “Field To Table” Recipes that are made with fresh ingredients that we hunt and fish for. Some of those favorite recipes include; Venison Stew, Whole Stuffed Rainbow Trout, and Venison Sausage.
For a detailed guide for everything you need to know about cooking venison, see my How to Cook Venison, the Ultimate Guide! You will find information on all types of cooking venison, where to source venison, proper venison handling techniques, and more!
Binky’s Culinary Carnival has had the privilege of being featured in various online publications, including; MSN.com, Buzzfeed, Honest Cooking Magazine, Taste of Home Magazine, Foodgawker, Tastespotting, Yummly, Bloglovin’, Shutterstock, Foodista and Dishing with Delishes podcast, among many others.
I will help you to answer the age old question, “What’s for dinner?”, with unique, fresh recipes. You will find useful tips, that I share with you, to save yourself time and money. Also, I put a fresh, healthier spin on some of the old favorites and, of course, lots of original creations, too!!
Step by step process photographs will help you make each and every recipe perfectly, the first time and every time!
