High Altitude Whole Wheat Bread

I’ve been reading a few books lately about the Danish concept of Hygge and creating a mood of coziness really speaks to my soul. Every winter, I just want to hole up in a pair of fleece pants and make baked goods. While I often gravitate towards desserts, I also regularly make more practical things,… Read more »

Lemon Blueberry Cheesecake

Yesterday it was 78° and sunny, today it’s snowing. I’ve never been fond of winter and when I’m whiplashed into it, I’m even less fond. It causes me to dream about things like summer days and lemon blueberry cheesecake.

The Only Granola You’ll Ever Need

I know, you’re probably thinking you haven’t blogged in months and this is the recipe you come back with? Granola? Yes, granola.

How Not to Let a Fire Ban Ruin Your Camping Menu

Having spent much of our youth in Utah and our adulthood in Colorado, we here at the Dirty Dish Club are no strangers to a fire ban. As much as we love dutch oven cooking, we realize that at some point during the summer we will likely no longer be allowed to do so while… Read more »

Soft Ginger Cookies

One of the hardest things about caring for my mother-in-law before she passed was her decreasing appetite. We here at Dirty Dish Club take pride in our kitchen skills, but there were days when even the most tantalizing dishes could not entice her. On those days, there was only one thing to do –  make… Read more »

Fairly Lazy Dutch Oven Peach Cobbler

Ten years ago we got our first dutch oven as a wedding gift. You could say it’s a metaphor for our marriage: strong, dependable, occasionally gets rusty when it’s been neglected, but is good as new after being re-seasoned. A good marriage and a good dutch oven are up there on the list of things that… Read more »

Savory Spiced Nuts

If you follow us on Instagram you already know that the Dirty Dish Club made a pilgrimage to Nebraska to witness the solar eclipse in totality. It was a quick, but absolutely amazing trip. If you ever get a chance to witness a total eclipse we highly recommend it. Our preparation for the trip was… Read more »

Backpacking Pasta + Our Favorite Food to Eat on the Trail

I posted this picture to instagram and Facebook over the weekend from a mini backpacking trip we did with friends and many were surprised to find out it was a dinner we made while backpacking. Today, I’m here to dish all the dirty details on how we made that meal happen, plus share some of our… Read more »

Dirty Dish Club Goes Coastal

In my last post, I mentioned we just got back from a trip to the Oregon Coast. It was a glorious week of cool temperatures, runs on the beaches, and high berry consumption. Since it was a vacation, we indulged ourselves with lots of tasty food. Here is the recap of our vacation told in… Read more »

Our Top Five Favorite Cheesecakes

National cheesecake day is this Sunday! We usually throw a big party so we don’t feel ashamed about baking an obscene amount of cheesecake, but this year we just got back from a trip to the Oregon coast and sadly don’t have enough time or energy to make it happen.*

    Several years ago I bought a t-shirt at a little Finnish shop in Astoria, OR. The shirt said, “Miksi minä olen niin kaunis? [Translation: Why am I so beautiful?] Because I’m Finnish.”  I’m 1/4 Finn thanks to my grandma; needless to say, she got a kick out of that shirt. My grandma was always kind… Read more »

  • D’Deli Dalton Panini

    My dear wife doesn’t seem to like sandwiches. This has been a source of great disagreement in our marriage. I, with my mad sandwich skills, can often make one she will tolerate if I have the right ingredients at my disposal. However, it wasn’t until we stumbled into a little sandwich shop named D’Deli in… Read more »

  • Salted Carmelitas

    Hi, my name is Audrey and I’m a stress baker. I’m going to go ahead and blame it on the fact that we don’t drink, but my favorite way to unwind at the end of a long day is by baking up a delicious confection. It might not be the healthiest habit, but it’s kept… Read more »

  • Swedish Meatballs with Sneaky Veggies

    I was convinced that I would never have a child that was a picky eater. When pregnant, I read articles about how what an expecting mother eats can affect a child’s pickiness later in life and felt pretty smug about the variety of foods I was introducing to our little fetus. Then when my oldest… Read more »

  • Pork Egg Rolls

    I perpetually crave Chinese food. Or to be more accurate, Americanized Chinese food. I’m sure it has something to do with my huge salt tooth, which is totally justified because I sweat so much when I workout, right? I mean I don’t want to put myself in danger of developing hyponatremia. I’m really just looking… Read more »

  • Ultra Salsa Verde

    I like to fancy myself a runner. One of my favorite ways to start a day is on the trails near my house as the sun rises. I’ve even run a few marathons, half marathons, and a trail race in the mountains. To be considered a runner part of the required reading is Born to… Read more »

  • Chicken in Cilantro Lime Cream Sauce

    My parents are frugal perfectionists that are addicted to DIY. Outsourcing isn’t really in their vocabulary, even when it comes to big events like weddings. When I got married they filled their house with pots growing grass for centerpieces, sewed table squares, and hit up every after Christmas sale in a tri-county area to scavenge for… Read more »

  • Dutch Oven Cherry Cobbler

    When I was seven years old my family bought an old house that was in need of a lot of love. The overgrown backyard was a nightmare for my parents, but a dream come true for free spirited, tree climbing, me. The tall grasses transported me to a jungle savanna where I’d scramble up dying cherry trees… Read more »

  • Grilled Honey Chicken Kabobs

    Nothing says summer like eating meat grilled on a stick. It just doesn’t get any better than this. Silverware not required–or recommended. Unleash your inner barbarian and eat this right off the skewer.

  • White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cheesecake

    You know that scene from A Christmas Story where the father descends into the basement to battle the furnace and a cloud of gray smoke mingled with garbled obscenities seeps through the floor vent? That’s kind of how things go at our house when things go wrong with the plumbing. You’re probably wondering how plumbing and cheesecake are remotely… Read more »
