Letter: Here is a nice letter from
a lady who tried our recipes and Dutch-oven cooking for the first time.
Hope it encourages you.
hi lee, my name is donna. tried your dump cake recipe
while we were camping last week. i did the one with spice cake and apple
pie filling. i used a 9 qt. Dutch oven. i added fresh blueberries, raspberries,
and blackberries and used almost the whole can of 7-up, man was it a
big hit. i couldn't believe how easy it was. especially since
it was my first time with the Dutch oven. also did a hobo stew
in the Dutch oven the next night. used 1 chicken breast, 1 petite sirloin
steak, and 1 pork sirloin steak, left over corn (that i cut off the
cob) 4 potatoes, 1 medium onion, lots of garlic cloves, 1 can
beer, 1 whole tomato, 2-3 tablespoons of spade l ranch beef marinade
and seasoning. i cut up meat and cooked it first with onion and
garlic, then added tomato, corn, seasonings, and water. i added
potatoes last so they didn't get mushy. cooked in Dutch oven
with coals under and on top for at least 2 hours. it was a major
hit! really enjoy your cowboy showcase site. thank you for
