3-0 out of 5 stars Not really "ancestor" cooking
The last sentence in the introduction says something along the lines of "now let's cook like our ancestors!" I'd estimate half the recipes in here call for refridgerated dough or boxed cake mix. Two things I don't eat and one I can't take with me to camp! The small section on breads was good as those were from scratch but be prepared for lots of mixes, cannded items and more convenience cooking than traditional ancestory fare.

Many of the recipes were "brown this, add that on top" which I could figure out myself. I bought this because the mixed reviews were unconclusive. The three stars come from the begining care guide and the bread section. Almost all the rest of the book is "meh" at best.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great Book!

5-0 out of 5 stars Start here to learn
While the book has recipies, that is not the focus of this book.More than half the book is teaching you about the dutch oven and how to use it.Then, the recipies take you further by teaching you as you go.If you want recipies -- forget it.If you want to learn how to select, care for, and how to cook in a dutch over -- this is great!

2-0 out of 5 stars the complete book of dutch oven cooking
this book spends too much time on history and stories. beginners need to know how to determine the temperature of the oven. advanced cooks may know how many coals to put on and under but charcoal is better to learn with.
twelve chapters of history and differances of cast iron and aluminum is too drawn out. the final blow is when there are only 19 recipes and most do not appeal to me.

1-0 out of 5 stars Don't judge this book by the cover !!!!!!!!!!
I had thought this was a great book for learning how to use Dutch Ovens for cooking. Lots of good general info and many nice pics. But, when it comes to the recipes I just don't get how the author can get them so screwed up. As I am new to Dutch Oven cooking I followed the recipes and cooking times precisely. I just wish the author had taken the time to take each recipe and follow it as per the directions to re-test the directions. Many of the cooking times are just plan screwed up and incorrect. As an example, there is no way in this world that the 1 hr cooking time for the sausage and sauerkraut recipe is anywhere near close to correct. Being new, I followed this literally and found that 1 hr is totally inadequate to get the dish to cook thoroughly. Tonite, I am trying the Big Woods Chichen recipe. One hour is completely inadequate for cooking. I am now trying to get the recipe to cook at 2 hrs. I'm sure my rice will be completely overcooked when the chicken is finally done. I am using a Viking professional stove which has been tested and calibrated and am also using a Lodge Dutch oven. Please don't waste your money on this book. It looks good but when you follow the recipes to the letter the results are poor and very disappointing!!!!!!!1

5-0 out of 5 stars Good history and some other ibformation
This book has just saved me from worrying about gifts for my friends and relatives who camp or hunt. I plan on giving this book to many friends. The book is a great mix of history of the dutch ovens and the food cooked in them. I find it well written from the non-expert's view and would make a good book to introduce people to dutch oven cooking.

Husband received it for a birthday gift. He can't wait to try his dutch oven out now that he has recipes.

5-0 out of 5 stars Very nice cookbook for campers
My family uses this cookbook all the time.When we started camping we bought a dutch oven and a cookbook to use with it, though I've found any recipe can be used in a dutch oven- because its an oven.The cookbook as tasty, unique recipes and bonus- most of them are very easy.The desserts are great and we've met many fellow campers while sharing our desserts.I liked the book so much I got one for the in-laws.

The product "Cooking the Dutch Oven Way" was in very good condition. It was priced very reasonably and shipped promptly. I am very pleased with the transaction.

5-0 out of 5 stars Cooking the Dutch Oven Way
I teach a Dutch Oven class and this is my favorite book.I often purchase it to give as a door prize to someone.You can tell the recipes are tested and true.Its a great book, great for a beginner or someone well learned in the 'Dutch Oven Way'who is looking for new recipes.

2-0 out of 5 stars Good book for a historian.
I love camping and eating by the fire and was looking for a good book on dutch oven cooking.This book is not it.
The back cover states "Woodruff perfected these recipes ... for more than 60 years as a scoutmaster ..."
That period is 1929 to 1989, the publishing date.
By today's standards, these recipes are dated.My son is a scout, and I have been on a number of scout camping trips - and believe me scouts mostly need simple meals to prepare.But Woody is too much into canned veggies, soups, and packaged mixes.You have to look long and hard to find a recipe in this book that uses fresh ingredients.
I suspect that if Woody were alive today, given his obvious commitment to Scouting, he would update most of his recipes to reflect more of today's thinking about healthy eating and fresh food. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Best cookbook I've bought in countless years!
I wasn't expecting what I got when I ordered this - but I sure love what I got.This book defines a patented method of cooking - who knew you could patent a cooking method?And boy, is it ever a good one.Put the food and liquid in the Dutch oven in the order listed, put on the lid, put it in a hot oven, and Voila!In around 40 minutes, give or take, you have a complete dinner for two.I was really glad that the recipes make this small portion since I'm a household of one, so I get dinner plus leftovers for another meal, but you can easily increase the recipes by using a bigger Dutch oven, multiplying the ingredients, and increasing the cooking time a bit.You can even prepare the pot ahead of time, keep it in the fridge, and put it in the oven when you get home from wherever you've been.Forgot to thaw that chicken or those pork chops?Frozen food is just fine.Want to use fish or shrimp?Go right ahead.Tofu?Sure, why not.Lots of healthy grains too.Amazing flexibility here.
The first part of the book explains the cooking method, the whys and wherefores of different kinds of Dutch ovens, the basic food stuffs you can use, and the room for variations.You are encourged to get familiar with the method and then branch out on your own, making dinners of your own choosing using the basic principles of the method.I highly recommend this book to those who have just enough time to throw stuff in a pot and get it in the oven fast.You have 40 minutes or so to do other stuff while it cooks, then sit down to a nutritionally well rounded and tasty dinner.Does it get any easier to make it yourself from fresh, healthy ingredients?I don't think so.Love this book!

5-0 out of 5 stars Perfect for those who can't cook a good meal if their life depended on it
I want to start out by saying that I am a mediocre cook at best.I am the type that needs to follow a recipe word for word, and even then my meals rarely turn out fantastic.

Not with this book!I've had it for over a month now, and now well over half of my meals are made using it.Most recipes are really good. I say most, because some are really quite bland, but even then it was no worse than many of my former 'quick meals' I use to make.My former baked chicken, rice, and a veggie is right on par with the frozen chicken meal she has, and it doesn't get any worse than that!

What I really love about this cookbook:

- Everything is healthy
- You can cook with frozen vegetables and meats
- It's easy to add a variety of foods you wouldn't normally use
- Vegetables turn out crisp, meats turn out tender
- Rice used in recipes turns out PERFECT and soooo tasty
- Foods don't mix flavors, but end up complimenting each other very very well.
- My Husband now eats second helpings of vegetables.Sometimes he even cleans out the pot.


- some of your food may get a little browned, especially rice.I don't mind it, but I know some people wouldn't like that. If you don't like it, adjust your time.

- You don't need to double up your recipes to use the 5qt.Just take a few minutes off the total cooking time. I cook my meals 3-5 minutes less than she suggests, depending on the ingredients.You'll get a feel for it during your first few attempts.

- Most recipes could use more salt.Usually when she says to sprinkle salt and pepper, I end up using about a tablespoon.

- Many of the recipes call for half of a certain vegetable.Half a pepper, half a zucchini... If its only one vegetable like that in a recipe, I generally put the whole thing in if I know I'm not planning to use it in the future.Better than letting it rot in my fridge, and it seems to have no effect on the quality of the meal.

My Favorite Recipes

- Glorious Macaroni and Cheese (make sure to use a strong flavored cheese)
- Fiesta Steak (sooo flavorful!)
- Honey and Spice Pork (can be a little overpowering for some people)
- Pacific Island Seafood (My husband raved about this one)
- Ed's New England Fish Chowder (DON'T add extra salt)
- Dill Salmon (Used fresh salmon, turned out spectacular)
- Rosemary Chicken (I use more rosemary than recommended)

All in all, this book has saved me not only time, but stopped us from eating out as much which of course saves us money.It's healthy, and it really doesn't hurt that I'm not buying Hamburger Helpless anymore!I actually get excited when I start my grocery list, because I can actually cook these meals. I know that my husband and I are eating so much better now than we were before.

5-0 out of 5 stars dutch oven cookbook
Easy, nutritious,delicious (yes, delicious and nutritious) recipes. Iam having difficulty finding a 2 quart dutch oven though.I found a 5 qt. at Target for only $30.The only 2 qt ones I've found are on the internet for $125 and up. So I have to double the recipes and have the family over for dinner.

4-0 out of 5 stars Quick,healthy, lightly flavored meals
Purchased this book to go with the Lodge 6 quart Dutch Oven and Le Creuset Stainless Steel knob that I purchased through Amazon.

PROS:The whole idea is awesome because it produces easy, quick and very healthy food in one big pot.If you are an athlete or watching your weight these dishes are a great way to get a variety of food groups with very little added fat.We do a lot of running and these dishes provide good protein, carbs and nutrients that we need.Making the meals is almost ridiculously easy and the clean up is also a snap because it is just the one pot.(Quick tip on cleaning enameled cast iron pots - clean while they are still a little warm, it seems to prevent teh food from getting too stuck on)

CONS:The down side is that the flavor is very light and seems to vanish in the finished product.She also uses some food items that can be hard to find or very expensive.My kids (9 and 3 years old) didn't really care for the food as it did have some different stuff in it - if you kids are adventurous when it comes to food it will be OK but if they are not they may not care for quite a few of the dishes.

Overall - good book with a great process, just may need to make dishes a couple times to get seasoning the way you like it

2-0 out of 5 stars Untested recipes
I really liked the concept of the recipes in this book, but I have tried about 6 and only one of them came out well.Too often, the ingredients are not evenly cooked -- some under and some overcooked.I think many of the recipes were not tested properly.I would really like to find out from other readers what book they think is best for using the dutch oven to make one-pot recipes.It's a great idea, but this book doesn't have it worked out. ...

The product was never delivered.After a couple of weeks, I received an email stating they were out of the book.The company should have not been advertising the product, if they were out of stock.I will not purchase anything from this company again.

3-0 out of 5 stars okay book
Bought this book hoping to get a little more info on dutch oven cooking. I agree with the others it needs a coal breakdown for temps. Some recipes gave temps so if you know the breakdown your okay.

Most of the recipes and coal breakdowns can be found on the internet anyhow.

5-0 out of 5 stars Small cookbook
I will admit to being surprised when I got this at how small the book is, but its full of info and perfect for taking camping. I agree with others, there is no instructions on how many coals to use or for placement, but once you have used a DO a few times, it all becomes second nature.

I use mine one the stove or in the oven. We don't camp often but I use my DO at least twice a week. With a recipe that needs a few hours to cook, I make it in the backyard on a charcoal BBQ'er and it works great. I have had no problems at all figuring out cook times and temps.

5-0 out of 5 stars From an intriguing Peppermint Pound Cake to Potato Soup, here's a fine pocket presentation also recommended for in-home use.
Many dutch oven cookbooks on the market are weighty and daunting: not so the 4th updated edition of a near-pocket guide Dutch Oven Cooking, which is perfect for taking along and meal planning for a camping trip. It's the outdoors orientation which differentiates this from similar-sounding, home-oriented coverages, offering up dishes perfect for campfires and overnights and moving the dutch oven from indoors to outside. From an intriguing Peppermint Pound Cake to Potato Soup, here's a fine pocket presentation also recommended for in-home use.

Product Description
This illustrated cookbook aims to unlock the traditions of classic Pennsylvania Dutch cookery as it has evolved over the past 300 years. Over 125 original recipes provide clear instructions on how to create crusty farm breads, peasant one-pot dinners, luscious spring soups, and light, sophisticated salads made with regional specialities like spelt and hickory nuts. The heartland of this cookery style is a 15-county area in South Eastern Pennsylvania, but the culinary style spreads deep into the Midwest, the Upper South, and Canada and includes the Amish, Mennonites, and Moravians, amongst others. Both a cultural history and a working cookbook, this book not only tells you how to make a roast turkey with pepper hash, but also tells you how to ward off witch hexes and kitchen goblins. The book also includes a cook's guide to regional shopping and local ingredients; a glossary of food terms; recipes arranged by category; and alphabetic lists of recipes.Amazon.com Review
Long before the rest of America decided to get back to healthy basics in their cooking and eating habits, the Pennsylvania Dutch were happily living off the land. Among their fertile, rolling hills and lush green fields, these farm folk speak about their distinctive cuisine in a language that, in some parts of the United States, has been spoken longer than English. Pennsylfaanisch names grace every recipe in Pennsylvania Dutch Country Cooking, and to help non-Pennsylfaanisch speakers with pronunciation, there's a guide and even a glossary of additional food terms. But what's in a name? It's the cooking that counts in this compendium of more than 100 authentic recipes that are both delicious and healthy. There are recipes for breads, soups and noodles, meats, vegetables, and even a section for special holiday feasts. There are beverages such as Wheatland Harvest Tea, made from spearmint, lemon balm, tarragon, and bergamot leaves; desserts such as Hickory Nut Dumplings, served with stewed peaches; and recipes for rye, buckeye, sourdough, and potato breads, among many others.

As if the recipes alone weren't enough, Pennsylvania Dutch Country Cooking is brimming with photographs of the countryside, the gardens, the people, and, of course, the foods of this special place. This is a book that feeds the soul as well as the body, a feast for the eyes as well as the table. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars pot roast heaven
Picked this up at a local half priced books store. 5 star rating for the Braised Beef and Vegetable (aka Pot Roast) recipe alone. I have a 3 1/2 qt pot so I had to half the recipe but done right this has become a sunday standard for entire whole family (including a picky 9 yr old eater). I also recently modifed the dish by replacing the chuck roast with chicken thighs and legs, using white wine, white balsamic, and chicken stock, with spectacular results. Like some other reviews have stated this book is built 100% for a ceramic dutch oven (le creuset); that being said, if you have said dutch oven and can find this book used, buy it - you won't be disappointed.

This book offers easy and interesting ways to use the Dutch oven in your kichen to bake, broil, steam, deep-fry, saute, braise, and roast.Recipes run the gamut from great pastas, to yummy soups and stews, classic dishes, and some interesting variations using seafood, meats, poultry, and delicious vegetarian ingredients.It is a great book for really utilizing and using a great kitchen cooking vessel that no home should be without.

While the recipies may lean more to Le Creuset dutch ovens used at home, all of them can certainly be done in the old fashioned DO over charcoal. I find this to be some of the fun in DO cookery rather than just meat,biscuits and gravy. The recipies define steps, oven temps and time clearly.If you like challenges, this is fun. ... Read more

Got this for my wife as she is getting into dutch oven cooking. Seems to be heavy on recipies and not as much on technique. Would have liked a little more nuts and bolts stuff.

5-0 out of 5 stars the cadillac of cookbooks
a few months ago i got on this cast iron kick,bought a couple skillets and a pair of dutch ovens and all the tools and was ready to be a camp cook, only problem was, I had no dutch oven recipes. I read a few reviews and decided that experience was the best teacher and Cee Dub seemed to fit the bill. I've gotta tell ya, ol Cee Dub puts it all together in a very easily understood cookbook that explains things in great detail, not to mention that the best parts may well be the stories he shares. if you want an education on how to cook with a DO, this book is the real deal. a word to the wise, dont buy junk iron, LODGE is the best of the best, bar none, remember, you're only going to buy it once so you might as well have the best.

5-0 out of 5 stars "More" Duch Ocen cooking at it's best
The follow up of the first book is based on the same success recipe - easy to prepare, detailed cooking recipes for Dutch Oven's and entertained with amusing and entertaining Tall Tales.
I own both "Cee Dub's and other Camp Cookin'" books and the second book is not a refreshing of the first book, the recipes are different and it seems that Cee Dub is full of Tall Tales to make this cookbook an outdoor story novel.
This 2nd book is also like the 1st one highly recommended for lovers of outdoor and especially Dutch Oven cooking lovers.
I recently bought my second Duch Oven to get deeper into the described secrets of Duch Oven cooking.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good reading & recipes
This books tells you the basics of how to get started with dutch oven cooking, and includes very simple recipes for novices such as myself.I enjoy this book!It includes humorous side stories which are good reading.

5-0 out of 5 stars We want More Cee Dub
After reading Cee Dub's first book and then his new Second book, we can only conclude that it is a must for the camp cook.The recipes are delicious, healthy and easy to produce.Cee Dub also indicates how tospice each recipe up with our own preferred tastes.His tall tales makeyou want to read the book in one sitting.However the recipes make youwant to start cooking.Having lived near the area Cee Dub refers to in histravels, I can imagine seeing him out there on the river and in thebackcountry where I work and play.Cee Dub gives little tid- bits of hintsto make every camp cook more seasoned and makes every upcoming trip a featto look forward to.His stories of "pards" gone by touch thesoul of anyone who enjoys good times, friends and family.I would like toknow the "real story" behind some of the antics going on inCeedub' s camps.I doubt people would ever want to leave with such agracious host, great cook, andeven better story teller.Keep up thegreat work, Cee Dub, we will never put you down! ...

Very pleased with the prompness in receiving this book.Would recommend to
any one.This was purchased for a Christmas present and much appreciated by the recipient.

5-0 out of 5 stars Fun read, great recipes
This is fun cookbook to simply read.It has some very interesting information about old-time cooking, as well as wonderful recipes.It also has a miscellaneous section which has some fascinating recipes that are probably there more to be read than tried in modern times.Even if you never make a single recipe from this book (but you should!), it's a good read.

I've enjoyed everything I've made from it so far.

5-0 out of 5 stars Wonderful, nostalgic cookbook
This is a wonderful cookbook.It made me very nostolgic for my grandmother's upstate NY kitchen.I agree with the earlier reviewer that the recipes are nowhere as specific as those in more modern cookbooks.However that's not a detraction to me:they look just like the ones on my grandmother's recipe cards!There are indeed real gems in this collection and overall it's a good read.

2-0 out of 5 stars Reprint of earlier book but NOT so marked!
This book is a reprint of the authors' _Mennonite Community Cookbook_ ... Every single page is identical, word for word (just a different cover, title, and typeface) - which to me constitutes gross misrepresentation since I couldn't find that mentioned anywhere in the book, and I obviously wouldn't knowingly have ordered a duplicate copy.However, if you don't have the earlier book, you will love it.(The reason I ordered it was because I like the original book so much, and was therefore eager to see a seemingly new title attributed to them.)
It is a compilation of recipes culled from Mennonites.Since the original book was written in 1950, the directions are nowhere near as explicit as they would be today -- and there are very few "warm, fuzzy" notes prefacing recipes, so you can't tell if something was included because it is quick and easy, cheap, uses readily available ingreadients (which may be expensive today and hard for you to locate) or because it is incredibly delicious.But the gems in the collection make it well worth owning, and I love the book.My one and only complaint is that this edition is not marked as a reprint of the original.Once again, if you don't already own the original, this one is lovely.

Product Description
In some cooking circles, cast iron gets a bad rep – people think it's old-fashioned, heavy, and hard to take care of. And really, how often do folks nowadays need to hitch up a mule and wagon and leave civilization and Teflon-coated sauté pans behind?

True, cast iron is old; it's been around since the Middle Ages. And it is heavy. No one can dispute that even a small, cast-iron pot has a heft to it that no other cookware has. Nevertheless, cast-iron cookware has a place in today's kitchens, and that doesn’t mean simply hanging on the wall for decoration. Cast iron has much to offer modern-day cooks; it's easy to use, easy to care for, economical, versatile, and durable, and let's face it, it has a nostalgic appeal that no other cookware has. But more compelling than all those reasons is that it's a great cookware that makes great food. In fact, most cast-iron cooks will tell you that food cooked in cast iron tastes better than food cooked in anything else!

Cast-Iron Cooking For Dummies is for those cooks who may want to inject a little adventure and variety into their cooking. If you've never even thought of using cast-iron cookware, or you have a few cast-iron pots lying around, you'll discover all you need to know about making great food using cast iron. Here just a sampling of what you'll find in Cast-Iron Cooking For Dummies:

  • Selecting the right cast-iron cookware for you
  • Seasoning a new cast-iron pan
  • Caring for your cast-iron cookware
  • Discovering techniques to enhance your cast-iron cooking
  • Enjoying cast-iron cooking in the Great Outdoors
  • Tons of delicious recipes, from main and side dishes to desserts and international dishes
  • Top Ten lists on ways to make your cast-iron cookware last longer, the best dishes suited for cast iron, and tips for achieving success in cast-iron cooking

So, whether you're a cooking novice or an experienced chef, you can find plenty of enjoyment from cooking with cast iron – and Cast-Iron Cooking For Dummies can show you the way. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars A Great Reference On Cast Iron Cooking.
If you, or anyone else in your family are converts to Cast Iron Cooking, this is a great reference to have, in my opinion.It is of help to me, as I recently got rid of all my "non-stick" and "non-magnetic" cookwareand replaced much of it with "Lodge Logic", Cast Iron Cookware.And, as more and more people convert over to "Induction Cooking" (as, I also, have), I believe cast iron cooking, will increasingly become more popular, just as it was in the past.

5-0 out of 5 stars Cast-Iron Cooking for Dummies
Love it!Great reference, covers all the basics and much more.Plus it's fun to read.

1-0 out of 5 stars Disappointed
The so-called author clearly did a lot of cut and past to create the book for the Dummies series. She clearly is not an expert on the topic. On page 38 there is an incredibly ignorant and factually wrong paragraph about what oil to use for seasoning the pans (to make them non-stick.) Not only does she diss the oil that has been used for centuries to season such pans (lard) but she then recommends what is probably the very worse material, shortening, specifically Crisco. The only way I can believe someone would write such an ignorant and blatantly wrong paragraph is if they were getting paid by Crisco.

The section in Chapter 4 on cleaning old pans has several short comings. The use of vinegar was not mentioned, the used of edible oil and salt to gently scoure was not mentioned, and the topic of cleaning old pans with electrolysis was completely ignored though it is the most gentle, thorough and least labor intensive.

The author may indeed be a writer and a cook but she does not know diddly squat about how to take care of cast iron cookware.

5-0 out of 5 stars The Best!!!!
Being fairly new to this wonderful world of cast iron, I needed all the help I could get, and this book gives you all the help you need. I had been desperate to find ways to clean my old cast iron, and chapt. 3 was right on the money. It was worth buying the book for that chapter alone. I also found out how cast iron is made and also that you really need to search the backround of the company that you are purchasing your cast iron from. Many companies may have names that sound like they are made in the USA, but after checking, they aren't. The problem with this is the contents of the cast iron are not regulated outside the U.S. as stringently as they are here. What I'm trying to say is, you really don't know what you may be eating out of. I am returning an order after finding my item was made in China. It took almost an hour on line to find that info out. It was well hidden. I am now strictly sticking to Lodge Logic. Great products, and a regulated American company.

The book was great for some one like me who does not know how to cook.Good company to deal with.

1-0 out of 5 stars Big disappointment
I ordered this book based on the table of contents and on the description on Amazon. I've found every recipe I tried overly sweet and flat-tasting. I'll probably recycle this book next trip to Goodwill.

4-0 out of 5 stars Diverse Recipes
As a long time devotee to camp cooking, I really appreciate this book.Dutch oven cooking, or one pot dinners are as staple an item on any camping trip as ghost stories around the fire. As much as camp fire dinners over the years have evolved into some of my best meals ever, I will admit that most cookbooks and recipes shared around the fire tend to be the same old soups and stews.This book does and excellent job in providing some diversity to the tried and true meat and potato dishes.The ones I have tried so far have been delicious indeed. And as far as cookbooks go, this one is very reasonably priced as well. My only reason for taking off a star is I really could have done without so much of the preliminaries at the beginning that are not exactly boring, but definitely in my opinion book filler.A short introduction and a few more recipes added instead of the history and conditioning of the dutch oven would have made it a five star book.Still however as cookbooks of this variety go, this is one of the best as well as diverse I have encountered.Recommended...

5-0 out of 5 stars Good Cast Iron Cooking Book
I purchased this book for my son to give to him with a cast iron Dutch Oven. There are a wide variety of recipes with simple, easy to follow instructions.Looking forward to enjoying one of these recipes from the Dutch Oven. My son was excited about the gift!

5-0 out of 5 stars father in law loved it
We got this for my father in law after he asked us to find a cookbook for dutch ovens. He loves it and said he got some info from it that he didn't know.

4-0 out of 5 stars Handy little book with concise recipes
This book is as big as your hand. This little size is good for quick review of recipes when you are not in your own kitchen cause I don't think I'll bring a big and thick book for outdoor cooking. concise recipes are also wonderful. I don't want to spend a time to read a long recipes when your friends are starving.

I'm not sure if this book has a lot of typos. However, recipe for corn bread on page 37, '3 TABLE SPOONS baking power' looks like a typo for '3 TEA SPOONS baking power'

4-0 out of 5 stars It's ok.... but
Dutch Ovens are superior for their ability to transform common food into something exquisite. This book has a few recipes that exploit on that quality, but, for the most part, the recipes in this book could be made in any pot in the kitchen.
The ones I tried were very good, however I was hoping for more that would make the most out of what a Dutch Oven does best.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Gift
I bought this as an addition to a wedding gift that included the same dutch oven pictured on the cover.The recipes looked wonderful.They used common ingredients and the directions were explained very well.

5-0 out of 5 stars YUM!
A friend and I each picked up a copy of this cookbook.A week later, we've both tried 2 -3 different recipes and haven't found a bad one yet.

1-0 out of 5 stars Beautiful cover, but . . .
The photographer who created the cover should win a prize . . . It's beautiful . . . the recipes not so much. I have returned this book because the recipes were simply not my cup of tea. When I buy a new cookbook, the first thing I do is page through every page, attaching "flags" to those recipes that sound good to me. There were no flags when I finished going through this book! Although less classy looking, I would recommend instead "Cooking the Dutch Oven Way" by Woody Woodruff. .Cooking the Dutch Oven Way Although the cover gives the impression that it is meant strictly for outdoor cooking, the recipes all include oven temperatures and can be made in your kitchen. and what's more, the ingredients are simple items you'll find at your local grocery store or in your cupboard. You won't have to be heading for a specialty market to find what you need. . . and the recipes sound yummy. I can's wait to try them . . . and it won't be hard - I have almost every page flagged!

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent
This binder is put together in a simple to follow format.There is section on the basics with excellent information on temperature and placement of briquets.The recipes are all easy to follow and good meals, nothing gourmet with strange or hard to find ingredients.Many outside of the "just put a roast in" type.Great breads and desserts too!Perfect for any dutch oven owner, especially a family or scout troop looking for one book with several good recipes.

4-0 out of 5 stars Includes the "how to"
This is an excellent book for those starting out in "D.O." cooking because unlike other books, it actually explains how to set the temperature -- i.e. how many briquets to use and where to place them.And, you can easily copy and laminate the recipes you want to use in camp thanks to the handy binder format.There are books out there with better recipes (sorry, recipes calling for Sprite are scary), but the reality is once you know HOW to cook with a DO, you can pretty much use any of your favorite recipes.i recently picked up "Classic Homemade Casseroles" at a used book store; it has more tempting ideas than this book.

3-0 out of 5 stars Not exactly what I had in mind!
Overall, I think that this is a great cookbook.It's in a great 3-ring plastic binder that will stay open while you're cookin', and you can wipe off just about any "grahdoo" that you splatter on it.There are tons of recipes in it, but they're just not what I had in mind.I'm from Texas, and I know that most of the folks who wrote these recipes are from Utah and thereabouts.I guess they eat differently than I.Most of these recipes are modern dishes that you'd find in the kitchen, adapted for dutch ovens.But I was lookin' for more backwoods, down-home, stick-to-yer-ribs type grub.I'd rather have 20 good recipes like that.Another thing is that there's not much in the book about cookin' over an open fire, which I prefer because it's more authentic.Anyway, to each his own.Coincidentally, I'm still lookin'.

5-0 out of 5 stars Important information
This book has very good information on temperature control.After purchasing several books on Dutch Oven cooking this one gave the best descriptions on temperature control methods. While I have yet to put the actual recipes into practice the emphasis placed on ensuring the fledgling DO cook's first experiments aren't disasters are appreciated.

This book was purchased to learn how to cook in a dutch oven for a living history presentation at my child's school.I learned how to perfectly season my new oven (it came out great) and I made the Pioneer Journey Cakewhich is an authentic mid 1800's wagon train recipe.Cakes can have a mindof their own in a modern gas oven, so I had my doubts, but with Joan's tipson calculating oven temperature it came out perfect the first time.Thisbook offers tips and recipes for everyone from the beginner to thesophisticated oven user. ...
