Dutch Oven Barbecue Ribs

Dutch Oven Barbecue Ribs

It’s the Dutch Oven Chef here! I hope you had a restful weekend!

Historians believe Hoover never used the phrase but the slogan can…

Sammamish Trail Chili

Sammamish Trail Chili

Making Sammamish Trail Chili is like hiking in on a well-worn trail that I’ve never travelled on before. I might have a map and compass and the trail ahead is visible but I’m not exactly sure what I’ll encounter along the way. Are there other hikers on the trail? Is the trail well maintained? Are there animals in the vicinity? The Journey I’m sharing with you my “map and compass” for the journey I take whenever I make Sammamish Trail…
