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.

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.

Charleston Breakfast Casserole
I didn't like this. The croutons get really mushy and stay that way even when baked. I HATE mushy things. The whole thing was quite runny even tho I baked it 15 min longer than called for.

Chipotle Crusted Pork Tenderloin
OMG this was freakin amazing. I did a couple of tenderloins on a camping trip last summer. Everyone LOVED it and it was super easy!
