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.
