About the Author
The "South Jersey Foodie" is Nicole Pellegrini, sometimes known as sockii. She enjoys life as a writer, artist, webmaster, crafter and avid food-lover living in some of the last vestiges of active farmland in Gloucester County, New Jersey. She shares her home with her partner David, a podiatrist in Woodbury NJ and their six cats: Peanut, Norman, Sammo, Mischief, George and Benny.
I believe in enjoying life - and that includes enjoying as many different kinds and styles of food as possible. I am an omnivore with a personal passion for small, sustainable, ethical farming and natural foods. I have little patience for the "Food Police" or those who advocate that one dietary plan is the only "right" one for everyone. Find your personal balance and conscience; make food a joy in your life - that's my motto.

Flank steak is perhaps my favorite cut of beef these days. It grills beautifully and quickly and only a fast marinade is necessary to infuse it with flavor. Frequently used for fajitas and stir fries, I personally love flank steak best for beef salads, tacos and sandwiches, and if cooked right it tastes great served either warm or cold.
I happen to love venison – that’s deer meat, in case you weren’t sure! I am fortunate to have access to it every deer hunting season thanks to our family’s farm manager, who is an avid hunter, and also thanks to our butcher who saves me cuts of meat which his other hunting clients don’t want. Venison is a wonderfully lean red meat which can be used in many different ways you’d normally use beef – for instance, in a hearty winter stew.
