I’ve been studying the numbers and it’s clear that Letters To Dutch has become an inspiration for creative spirits, specifically in the areas of food and DIY crafts. Although I had no intention of exploring food when I first created this page, I’m glad I did. I’ve learned a lot and happened to create a few recipes that are sure to make your mouth water.

That’s why today I’m sharing our top four recipes: How To Slow Cook Tri-Tip, Creamy Avocado Spinach Pasta, Perfect Oven Baked S’mores, and Savory Tri-Tip Marinade

I often use my slow cooker to prepare tri-tip. By far, this is my favorite means of preparing meat. The trick is to lock in the fluids by wrapping the meat tightly in aluminum foil. Cooking it low and slow allows the meat to tenderize in it’s own juices, resulting in added flavor. Visit my post, How to Slow Cook Tri-Tip for the full tutorial and recipe.


I don’t know about you, but I’m always looking for ways to sneak healthy ingredients into my meals. And if you’re the parent of a picky toddler like I am, this is even more important! Dutch loves pasta, and I’ve had luck in the past sneaking vegetables into pasta sauce. This recipe, Creamy Avocado Spinach Pasta, was so yummy and easy to prepare, I had to share.


Thank you Summer for the sweet, gooey goodness of s’mores. I mean, it might be the single tastiest ingredient combination of all time. There’s that marshmallow, warmed and roasted until golden brown… sitting right underneath a layer of shiny, rich chocolate. Smash all that in between a crunchy, honey graham cracker and you’ve got yourself a classic Summertime treat. Visit my post Perfect Oven Baked S’mores to learn how to bring Summer indoors by baking s’mores in your kitchen oven.


For a large cut of meat, tri-tip might just be the best bang for your buck and the possibilities are endless when it comes to seasonings, marinades, and preparation. My family usually prepares it one of three ways: in our rotisserie oven, slow cooker, or the old fashioned way… over the flames of an open grill. No matter what your style of preparation, you’ll love this Savory Tri-Tip Marinade…. it’s savory with an Asian punch. The meat soaks up the sauce like a sponge, locking in all those delicious juices.
