The Recipe: 1 Box of cake Mix use 1 egg instead of 2 eggs replace the water with 7up or Sprite and 1 can of pie filling.
We used strawberry and cherry pie filling. I know that’s two they were small cans instead of the one big can.
Hearing on the radio about the Dutch Oven Cooking contest, I thought it sounded like a lot of fun. In the back of my mind I’ve always wanted to learn about cooking food outside. The gentleman in charge was very nice and supplied the coals and oven we supplied the Dutch Oven Pot which is a cooking pot Navars Mom gave him a long time ago. Most of the people there were cooking main dishes.
Our neighbor to the right of us, was the people’s choice award winner. With his gooey chocolate cake. The next morning when I woke up I swear I could smell that chocolate cake still cooking. That’s why it won The People’s Choice award, it was that good. Moist warm chocolate cake cooking on a fire Yummy. If I can find the recipe I’ll post it. Now that it’s a famous award-winning cake I’m not sure he will let go of the recipe, but I can check.
I found out that they give classes for Dutch Oven Cooking. Also you can find recipes on Google. I think it’s a fun way to cook outside and it really didn’t seem to be that hard. One of those things you can always learn more about. I’d give it two thumbs up, it was rewarding cooking and smelling the food as you cook. We served a line of people food from our dutch ovens they seemed happy and greatfull to be eating what we had cooked. For the main dishes they would use a thermometer to make sure that the temperature of the food was hot enough for food safety. After going to several food safety classes because of being a waitress over the years, I appreciated that step. Some of the recipes were bread pudding, peach cobbler, chocolate cake, strawberry cherry cobbler, dessert first always in my book. Let see pork chops, mexican stack, fish chowder, I think that won a ribbon, cheesy burger and potatoes, anyway I can’t remember all of them but as you can see that you can cook a wide variety of recipes. I had one women look into my eyes and tell me the cherry strawberry cobbler was to die for and that she was going to vote for us, we also had a couple other people say that they would put in a vote for us. We did not win any ribbons but, they did give us two really cool aprons which I’m sure will use. All this talk about food I don’t know about you but I’m hungry!
