Cowboy Casserole

Had some Bisquick to use up, so went straight to the source for a recipe that would kill the box for me. The recipe calls for ground beef, but I used ground turkey because…I pretend that I’m healthy? When covered … Continue reading

Last month’s library cookbook potluck was all dutch oven recipes. This isn’t the one I brought to the event, but it was the one I liked best/thought worth making later at home. I seem to do more fake risottos than … Continue reading

Honey Chicken Pizza

As with many pizzas, this is more an idea than a 100% rigid recipe, but it’s a good flavor combo I recommend working with! I had it first at Zax in Moab, so there is at least one pizza professional … Continue reading

Crockpot Pizza

Looking for something a bit different, while also super familiar? Throw some pizza in a crockpot! It requires minimal extra effort, doesn’t heat up your kitchen like the oven might, and still creates a good crusty…crust. I was actually a … Continue reading
