About this Cook
I grew up the youngest of four kids. My parents loved to travel and I had visited 48 states by the time I was 16, and had never flown anywhere! Their love of camping/RVing carried down to me, and out of us four, I'm the only one that owns an RV and travels the country with my husband and three children. We LOVE it!
My favorite things to cook
I LOVE to cook outside. Specifically, I LOVE to cook in my cast iron Dutch ovens! When we go camping, I bring about 200 pounds of cast iron with me. Just about all our cooking is done outside.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Our favorite traditions are cooking in my Dutch ovens. My kids and husband love it as much as I do and enjoy helping out and learning how to care for and cook in cast iron.
My cooking triumphs
Whenever I try a new recipe and my kids tell me it's a "do-over" I know I did good!
My cooking tragedies
Whenever I try a new recipe and my kids tell me "DON'T EVER MAKE THIS AGAIN!" LOL

Dutch Oven Mountain Man Breakfast
This is my own recipe, and of course, I think it's fabulous! When I cook in my Dutch ovens, I use CHARCOAL and wrote the instructions for using CHARCOAL. 6-9 coals underneath and 12 to 18 on top will give you approximately 350 degrees in your Dutch oven. Also, as any seasoned Dutch oven cook will tell you, you need to monitor your coals and add more as they burn away to maintain the proper temperature. Hope that helps!
