This is a recipe a friend of the family made us when I was a kid, many years ago. I have played with it over the years trying to reproduce it, and this is close enough. As camp cook, I used to make this for my hunting buddies before everyone went out into the wilderness hunting for the day... They loved it. At home it is still a frequent treat.
You can use these meatballs on pasta or in sandwiches. Or you may just find that people want to grab them right off the grill and pop them in their mouths.
A very easy recipe for coleslaw; you just throw these ingredients in a pot and cook them up. Chill and serve at your next cookout. Adapted from the 1910 Manual for Army Cooks.
I have made these on our fall camping trips. I use a cast iron skillet and a cast iron dutch oven.
We generally eat large chunks of dead cow or pig here on the ranch. Every once in awhile, though, we like to cater to the more delicate taste buds of the gals by cooking up some fish. Salmon is a good one that doesn't usually offend the men too much, but, since there aren't many salmon running the rivers here in New Mexico, we generally have to use canned salmon. Here is a really basic salmon patty that can be "adjusted" in many, many ways to suit almost any need.
A light and fluffy summer dessert salad that is so good you will want to eat it first!
I'm no chef and neither is my mom, but when it's time for a mac and cheese throw-down, we can hold our own. Forget the cheese sauce and bread crumb topping...because while it may be tasty it ain't real mac and cheese. This recipe features cheese, cheese, and more cheese. Let's begin.
Nice lil mix of flavors. Little sweet, little kick, little Asian, little traditional wing flavor. So tender they fall off the bone.
People just can't believe that we can put together such a delicate, rich and flavorful pasta dish here at the ranch. I hesitate to tell them that it's something we usually whip up when time is short or unexpected guests arrive on our doorstep! Quick and easy, we normally use frozen shrimp and frozen chicken breasts. This and a simple tossed green salad makes a really nice meal! Serves 6-8 people with some left over for the next day.
You may be ready for a change in your potato salad, just like LeBron James wanted a change in cities. Instead of mayo, this salad gets its creaminess from sour cream...walnuts for crunchiness instead of pickles...and horseradish takes the place of mustard. Give it a shot if you dare.
This isn't the creamy potato salad you're used to, but instead one dressed with vinegar and man's best friend, bacon. Adapted from the 1910 Manual for Army Cooks.
We used to make these in the dorm and invite a group over. Makes about 1 pitcher. We had to limit everyone to 2 at first since it would tend to hit when we thought it wouldn't. If you're really brave try to play beer pong with it.
Why make cookies without flour? I dunno, but it seemed like a good idea! (Besides, some folks aren't compatible with gluten!). I got the idea from someone else, but this is my own way of doing it to peanut butter cookies. People who have tried them are unbelieving that there is no flour and you will be, too, when you try them! Oh, and the "36 servings?" Actually, that's 36-40 cookies
Spicy hot deviled eggs excellent for any cook-out, picnic, Barbeque or any other occasion which is appropriate for 'em.
Fiery, sumptuous beef filets with a comforting cheese are wrapped in tortillas, and served with a spicy tomatillo sauce for an added kick!
