Chicken Pot Pie

My wife ‘s goal was to come up with a chicken pot pie that was better than she could get at the restaurant.  Let me tell you, she totally nailed it!  My family LOVES this recipe and we make it often.  If you are going camping, just make the filling ahead of time and put […]

Pork Chops and Gravy

I am starting to get excited about my solar oven.  Think of it, cooking with nothing but the sun.  My house stays cooler and I just set it out in the back yard and keep working until lunch is ready.  I would really like to cook in my solar oven 3 – 4 times a […]

Easy Flan

When it comes to deserts, I think one of the very best is flan.  It looks impressive and with that smooth, velvety, creamy texture it doesn’t get much better.    The wonderful thing about flan is that it looks a lot harder than it really is.  So I got a little adventurous and put one in […]

Cajun Curry Chicken

We are a long-way from the South but I LOVE making this dish when we go camping.  It has a great combination of sweet and heat.  It is awesome for dinner and then the leftovers can be put in a cooler and placed in a tortilla the next day for a Cajun Wrap.  So easy […]

Grandma’s Candied Apple Dumplings

My very first Dutch oven experience was with my brother-in-law Dean Hatch at the Festival of the American West in Logan, Utah.  Dean needed an assistant and I was fortunate enough to join him.  This is his grandmother’s recipe and it was good enough for us to place in the desert competition.  My family loves […]

Rice with Sausage and Black Beans

I absolutely love to dig through cookbooks and look for new things to make.  I happened upon a rice recipe that sounded really good, but it turned out even better.  The sausage and black beans, along with a little heat was simply wonderful.  Try this next time you fix ribs or chicken for a great […]

Chili Relleno Casserole

During one of our neighborhood get-togethers, Dave Cisneros came up with a great side-dish.  It Is hard to go wrong with lots of cheese, green chilies and eggs.  It is wonderful with chicken, rice dishes and great with a bowl of chips.  I hope you enjoy it as much as we do. Dave’s Chili Relleno […]

Bryant’s Baked Beans

While living in Kansas I loved cooking with Bryant Smith.  We would always cook too much for our two families and have to ask others over to join us for dinner.  Bryant came-up with a super-good baked bean recipe that I have kept ever since.  It is colorful and packed full of flavor.  I think […]

Two-Corn Casserole

The next time you are invited to a BBQ where you bring your own meat and a side dish, make something a little different.  This two-corn casserole is a great combination of flavors.  The texture, flavor and appearance are a perfectly matched and the pot is always licked clean.  It is a simple recipe that tastes like […]

Coop’s Brisket

There are few things I enjoy more than a good beef sandwich, and brisket is about as good as it gets.  Several years ago while living in Wichita, Kansas I was introduced to a brisket that had real potential.  I went home and tweaked the recipe a few times until I found the right combinations […]
