Simple & delicious
About this Cook
I love the Rockies and spend as much time up in the mountains as I can. I especially love cooking outdoors. I especially enjoying the dutch oven. Nothing tastes better than just about anything that's been cooking in the dutch oven all day. We also grill year round.
My favorite things to cook
The dutch oven is my favorite method of cooking. Chicken and potatoes is my favorite dutch oven dish. It's simple and the first dish I ever learned how to do but it's delicious. Beef stew, pork chops and fruit cobbler are my other dutch oven favorites. At home I love cooking seafood and fresh veggies
My favorite family cooking traditions
New Years Day we always have crab legs to start the year right. I always make German Chocolate Cake for my husbands birthday. We have the traditional turkey at Thanksgiving and ham at Christmas.
My cooking triumphs
Last summer I created my own sauteed spinach recipe. It's better than any recipes I found. I am quite proud of how good it turned out. That's the most recent triumph I can think of.
My cooking tragedies
I tried homemade Alfredo sauce once. It was like paste. The first time I tried a Thanksgiving dinner on my own it was sort of a disaster but we scrapped together enough to have a nice meal.

Chorizo Burger
The patties completely fell apart when we tried to turn them after 4 min on the grill. We had to put them on the plate and take them back in the house because they were literally in pieces. I threw it all in a frying pan with the Ranch dressing sauce and we ended up with a sort of Sloppy Jose. We ate it on buns with sour cream and cheese. My husband actually really liked them but I gave it just one star because it was inedible as a burger.

Chicken and Cheese Enchiladas
I started with cooking the chicken in my crock pot with a packet of taco seasoning and a can of diced tomatoes. 12 hrs and it shreds very easily. I shredded 2 chicken breasts and had about 3 cps to work with. As others suggested I used the Fiesta Nacho Cheese soup and left out the green chilies. I also got a can of enchilada sauce; half added to the soup and half on the bottom of the baking dish. I think the mix of cheese soup and enchilada sauce was perfect! Just the soup would be little to goopy and I've never been a fan of straight enchilada sauce. I added about a cp of the soup/enchilada sauce to the chicken and spooned the rest of it over the top of the enchiladas in the pan. I also added some shredded cheese to each enchilada. Oh, and I used corn tortillas instead of flour. With the changes I made we all loved this recipe and I will be using it a lot now.

Black-Eyed Pea Bratwurst Stew
I needed a recipe to use up some sausages I had on hand and I needed a hearty meal to serve the whole family for lunch. No time to cook in the morning so I threw all of this into my crock pot just before bed, left it on low till noon the next day when we served it up with some good bread from a local bakery. Everyone raved over it! I used half bratwurst and half Italian sausage because that's what I had on hand. I cut them into 6 pieces each so they'd be a little closer to bite sized. Other than that I did it just as the recipe calls for. Oh, except I stirred the flour into some of the broth and didn't add the extra cup of water.
