Good morning everyone! I'm dying to hear what you think of the new Dutch Oven Madness! I hope you all like it as much as I do. I'm only about half done with the changes, and obviously the most noticeable change is the awesome new background. Over the next few weeks I'll be adding some tabs to make finding your favorite recipes and DO info faster, and making it easier to print the recipes you want to try. I'll also be using a new format for posting. But now I'm curious what will make Dutch Oven Madness more user friendly for you. I'd love to have your input, so leave a comment and tell me what you'd like to see! Thanks!

I have a fun, yummy recipe for you today. It includes one of my all time favorite ingredients--Pesto! If you haven't tried pesto yet, you really need to. Its usually a mixture of basil, pine nuts and olive oil and its fabulous! I put it on grilled cheese sandwiches, or any sandwich for that matter. Its also great added in to pasta sauce or Alfredo sauce.

I am soon going to be working with my dear friend and web designer, Erika, to create a whole new look for Dutch Oven Madness. I'm really excited about the new design and I hope you will love it as much as I do. It will have a dramatic new background and be a lot more user friendly. Hopefully, you will be able to find the information you want much more quickly and easily. This new design will be a little time in the making since Erika is fitting me in between her other clients and is, quite frankly, doing me a HUGE favor by doing it. So when its done (or as its coming along) let me know what you think and how you like it!

I'm really trying to get into my creative groove lately. I'm tired of all the recipes I have (even though I haven't even tried most of them). So I'm tweaking the ones I've made before. Some have been epic fails, but this one turned out really well. I have a recipe for mashed potatoes that is flavored with dry ranch dressing, and I've been on a horseradish kick, so why not flavor potatoes with horseradish.

Yes. Yes, it does say grape and apple crisp. Never cooked with grapes, you say? Well neither had I, until today. Grapes are #2 on my list of favorite fresh fruits, right behind ripe, juicy pears. I love them so much fresh that it had never occurred to me to ever try to cook with them. But in the process of making this recipe I learned something about grapes.
