Recipes for the campsite, and at home too.
Nothing beats the flavor of steak, seared and tender. This is a mans recipe with class.
Spicy grilled tuna sandwiches on rye bread. Gives a regular, boring lunchtime a good kick in the pants. Great with potato chips, French fries or soup.
My old recipe simplified and toned-down.
Great easy sandwich. New version of a classic. So simple and good, you'll wonder why you hadn't thought of it before.
The Portuguese people can prepare codfish in 1001 ways! This is one of them. It's a delicious salty egg scramble with cod, French fries, onions, and olives.
A tangy and sweet chicken recipe that livens up the taste buds and brings smiles to people's faces.
This is my adaptation of a family recipe for skillet baked cornbread using buttermilk and cream-style corn. Goes well with just about anything!
Don't worry--these don't have eccentric California ingredients! In fact, they are very traditional. The only exception is the use of sourdough bread crumbs, which lend a fuller, tangier flavor than crackers or plain crumbs. Combine the sourdough bread crumbs with a perfect blend of spices and vegetables and lots of crab, and you have a winning combination. Make smaller cakes for appetizers, or larger ones -- like these -- for main dishes. Enjoy!
Wild Canadian goose breast with sauteed onions and garlic in a sweet chili sauce.
This chicken mince sauce recipe was created for Macquarie Chapel in Eastwood, Sydney which serves free meals to the homeless and hard up. Breathe in the aroma while it's cooking to remind yourself that you're alive and ok! Serve over pasta or rice.
Beans, beef, tomatoes, jalapeno and habanero peppers, onion... whatever sounds good goes in! This makes enough chili to feed an army. I cook it on the stove first, let the flavors mature in the fridge overnight, and then put it in the slow cooker all day while I'm at work.
Warm simple chili that hits the spot during a football game or any other time you really need it.
A quick and easy way to satisfy everybody!!! Grade A.

This is a skillet recipe, inspired by Hamburger Helper(R), but full of good noodles and tastier spices. It has a Thai flavor with lots of curry and works well as a winter meal that will warm you from the inside out.
These lightly seasoned meat patties are a Danish home-cooked supper staple. This recipe is from my Grandma Sorenson, who raised her daughters during the Great Depression in a converted chicken coop in Los Angeles. Served with pan gravy, good Danes would have an onion and cheese bread with butter to go with this, as well as red cabbage and a good beer.
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.
It's OK to have Alfredo sauce every once and a while. Right? Well if you still do not believe me, try this lighter version with ham I created. It's delicious and easy.
A delightful sweet and slightly spicy red chicken chili that is perfectly complimented by a nice cornbread. Fantastic for fall and winter days. Works well as a quick and easy dinner when having friends or family over.
Very easy, sophisticated and versatile steak marinade, with a hint of spice from peppercorns.
This is a recipe that is full of the flavors of fresh vegetables!
