This recipe comes from our beloved Chef Todd Leonard. It’s a no fuss, take the easy way out, make it while you’re out camping kind of deliciousness.
We are lucky enough to have a Dutch Oven expert in our store. From the first time we tried his Baked Beans, we knew we needed to trust this man and his dutch oven cooking. Today we share with you his tried and true baked bean recipe. Easily alterable, leave out the meat, add more meat, or a couple more cans of beans to make it stretch a little farther.
The skill of cooking hard boiled eggs is essential to your cooking repertoire. Especially around Easter time! Eggs are a powerpacked food source (high in protein, low in carbohydrates, full of nutrients!) and hard boiling them makes them fast, easy additions to any snack or meal. But searching the food world for the correct method is completely confusing.
The Perfect Eggs are a sign of a skilled cook. They take some finesse but they are definitely not out of reach for those interested in learning how. They just require the right tools, a little technique and some new information!
Read on to find out our favorite ways to cook up the perfect eggs.
Candy molds are a fun and easy way to make homemade goodies. If you’re looking for a gift for friends or neighbors, molding chocolate and candy is an easy way to share a little love.

I’ll never forget the first time I roasted broccoli florets. Their flavor was no longer a nuisance to endure but a delight to enjoy. The crispy edges and caramelized, deep flavor excited me. I’ve been roasting vegetables ever since.
And I definitely roast more than broccoli. Just about every vegetable has made its way into my scorching hot, pre-heated oven over the years.
If you’re new to roasting vegetables, we hope you’ll give them a try. It has become a skill that is essential to creating easy, delicious, and healthy meals.
If you’re a roasting pro, stick around. We can all use inspiration for some variation. (check out this philosophy on a slow and low veg roast).
Stuffing is the iconic partner to the Turkey for Thanksgiving dinner. This stuffing really accentuates the warm flavors of fall and uses all the right herbs to make you feel back in Grandma’s kitchen. Fresh rosemary, thyme, sage and parsley. But we’ve mixed it up with large pieces of sausage, crsipy pieces of bread, and of course the perfect amount of smokey flavor from our favorite Traeger Grill.
Around here we like to think that Turkey is a protein we can enjoy all year long. And when you simplify the whole process by cooking just a turkey breast, it takes all the pain and effort away from a whole turkey, and you’ll end up with a perfectly moist, tender, delicious piece of meat.
