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 […]

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 […]
