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 […]

Grilled Pineapple – Oh My!

When we were first introduced to a Brazilian Grill restaurant many years ago, we found that at the top of our list there was the grilled pineapple!  We had never tried doing this before, but we have done it many times since!     This is a wonderful way to prepare and enjoy pineapple, and […]

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 […]

Perfect Grilled Chicken

After many years of trying to figure out how to make chicken on the grill just right, it seems that I now have to formula to make that happen consistently.  It seems like so many times the center of the chicken is still uncooked while the outside has become a burnt offering!  🙁   Now […]

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 […]

Our 1-Hour Ribs

Faith loves ribs.  I mean she really, really likes ribs.  A while back she was sitting in a hospital waiting area flipping through magazines.  She happened upon a recipe for ribs that only takes a little more than an hour, which almost seems too good to be true.  Most of the time you have to bake […]

Smoked Salmon on Cedar Plank

When I visited my sister in Canada, she grilled some salmon on her gas grill using ceder planks and it tasted really good.  I found some cedar planks recently so I thought I would try smoking some salmon in my kamodo charcoal grill.  This turned out better than I remembered and it is another great […]

Smoked NY Strip Steak

I thought that I would try a simple recipe for my 1st time cooking a steak with a new pellet grill that I recently bought,  I have been cooking on a kamodo style charcoal grill for the past couple of years and want to try cooking on a pellet grill . I like the flavor of […]

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 […]
