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 […]

Tin Foil Sacks

Since I was a new Cub Scout I have made tin foil dinners.  Most of the time they turned out dry and a little lacking.  That all changed when I attended Scoutmaster Training and learned how to make a tin foil sack.  It took the old tin foil dinner to a whole new level.  They are […]

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 […]

Spiedie Chicken Sandwiches

My daughter introduced me to Mel’s Kitchen Café and I just can’t seem to get away from it.  Katie found these wonderful chicken sandwiches there and I have been in heaven ever since.  We made our own adaptations and are happy to share the recipe with you. Chicken Spiedie Sandwiches 1/2 cup olive oil 2 garlic […]

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 […]
