Alfredo Sauce

Rich Creamy Alfredo Sauce I absolutely love Alfredo Sauce and this versatile sauce is great over many things. I love this sauce with chicken and fettuccine noodles best.  Alfredo sauce is also great with shrimp and prawns, white fish, crab and even pork chops. You can take pork chops or a boneless skinless chicken breast and smother it in this sauce for a tasty main entree’. Alfredo sauce is also awesome with vegetables such as mushrooms, broccoli, cauliflower, or asparagus. If you want to try a great vegetarian dish just serve one of the fore mentioned vegetable over noodles with...

Roasted Squash With Garlic

Roasted Squash Over a Campfire There are a couple of different ways you can accomplish roasting this incredibly healthy vegetable. The first is to use a Dutch oven and the second is to just wrap the squash in foil and bake directly in the coals.

I love garlic on everything, especially vegetables and these roast up really nicely with garlic...

It does, however, require a type of treatment unique among cookware. Cast iron pans are almost never meant to be washed (aside from possibly at first usage). Instead, they must be seasoned, which means melting lard into tiny crevices in the metal. Done properly,...

Hobo Stew

Delicious Hobo Stew Hobo Stew is also known by some as tin foil dinners. I first learned about these when I was a camp assistant cook back in college at Hidden Valley Camp. During our training week, we got to go on an overnight and the counselor in charge of training during this evening showed us how to make these. He first showed us how to build a nice cooking fire and while that was burning down to some nice coals, he began cutting up the vegetables and mixing up a biscuit mix. Then he got out the foil, placed some hamburger...
