We had the luck of being asked to tag-along on a rafting trip over our kids’ fall beak a few weeks ago. We floated a section of the San Juan River and soaked up the very last of summer. We are novice rafters, but were able to offer our services in the food department. Below… Read more »
It’s been awhile since we’ve done one of these posts, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing since it forces me to share only the best recipes we’ve tried lately. The first one is for omnivores, but all the rest are solidly vegetarian (and even vegan in some instances).
Cooking for van life is similar to camping, but has its own unique challenges. The van we rented had a very small fridge (you can read more about the experience here), so we had to choose our refrigerated items with care. Below, I’m featuring the four dinners we made in the van. They were all… Read more »
Here at Dirty Dish Club, we love the outdoors. A lot of our best food has been inspired by our adventures. Like many of you, big adventures got put on pause due to the pandemic. With the ability for our adults to get vaccinated though, the possibilities began to open up again and we began… Read more »
Hello! It’s been awhile since we’ve done one of these posts. We’ve been busy with then end of school and then busy with all things summer. Here are some of the highlights of things we’ve eaten these last two months. This has been a season of quick meals hardly worth mentioning and celebratory gatherings (thanks,… Read more »
It’s about time I did another meal round-up. Here are some of the things we’ve eaten recently.
This week we’ve got the whole gamut: traditional Easter dinner complete with ham, veggie burgers, epic s’mores, and a vegan dinner.
I am so excited that it’s getting warm enough to camp again! Below are the meals we ate for our most recent backpacking trip – a three day, two night affair in Canyonlands.
We start the next dish details round-up with a meal you’ve already seen here before. (Full disclosure, I am eating a microwaved chimichanga from the freezer section while I type this. Not all our meals are well-rounded or glamorous.)
With enough whipped cream and berries this was still yummy. We’ll spare you the recipe this time.
Peanut Butter Cup Cookies
I know it’s still January and it breaks some sort of code to post cookie recipes, but I just can’t help myself. Besides these cookies have some healthy elements, so those of you that are still going strong on your healthy eating goals don’t even have to feel like you’ve completely failed.
Special Occasion Potato Casserole
I really struggled with what to call this dish. Maybe it’s just me, but there’s something about the word “casserole” that conjures up images of mystery potluck dishes, funerals, or nights where mom just doesn’t want to think about feeding people and that’s definitely not the vibe I’m looking for here. Turning to the thesaurus… Read more »
Homemade Oreos With Cream Cheese Frosting
I’ve never particularly been a huge fan of oreos, but I think it’s because I was spoiled with plenty of delicious homemade cookies growing up. My grandmother had a delicious and easy recipe for homemade oreos that I used for years until I decided to abandon the use of shortening and store bought cake mixes…. Read more »
Screaming Banshee Smoothie
We try not to eat out a lot (which is not always easy with over ten restaurants popping up in the last year within a two-mile-radius of our house), so when we do we try to make choices that we won’t regret. One of our favorite places is a quaint cafe that serves breakfast and… Read more »
Chocolate Almond Nutballs with Creme Centers
I never thought I would learn the recipe for pure bliss at the age of twelve, but the first time I made these I knew I had found it. We had a guest teacher in my 4-H group who had previously worked for a little candy shop in my hometown and she told us that… Read more »
Citrus, Avocado, and Bacon Salad
We’ve foolishly bought those giant packages of salad greens from Costco a few times in the past with delusions of our small family actually being able to eat all of it before it begins decomposing in our crisper. We’d give ourselves pep talks and try to eat salad every day and though we’ve come close… Read more »
Post Thanksgiving Highlight Reel
The marathon is over. We hosted Thanksgiving this year. 10 people, 5 dishwasher loads, 12 lb turkey, and tubers galore. Good times were had by all. Here’s the rundown:
High Altitude Snickerdoodles
When we’d first moved to the Denver area, we got invited to a potluck dinner where one of the guests had brought Snickerdoodles. Everyone in attendance gushed over how tender the cookies were and complained about how whenever they made Snickerdoodles they were always flat and crunchy. The cookies’ creator thanked us for the many… Read more »
Heart Healing Lasagna
I recently had the opportunity to take dinner to a church friend who had one of those trial-by-fire-sort-of-weeks that makes you cry just hearing about it. My heart ached for her and her family and I desperately wanted to do something more than just take her dinner, but knew that the limitations of reality prevented… Read more »
