Your Kitchen Friends
Our guests often ask for recipes from the Latigo Ranch kitchen.  We plan to post a new recipe here regularly. 

Lisa searches for recipe ideas and often finds new recipes to try, and if we like them, Randy experiments to figure out how to make them work when preparing them for 30+ guests.  Sometimes what we end up with is quite different from the original  and other times we make little change.  

Since most of you don't live at 9,000 ft. above sea level like we do, we have adjusted the recipes for baked goods for low altitude.  If you do need to correct for higher altitudes, please feel free to email us for suggestions.

Enjoy your cooking, eating, and friendship around the table.

Artichoke, Tomato, and Basil Pizza

Sunday, November 28, 2010

This is a great alternative to heavy meat pizzas.  I used low fat cottage cheese instead of the ricotta, but I let it sit in a strainer for 15 minutes first so that it was a similar consistency to ricotta.  I also used an easy way to seed tomatoes.  Dice them and place the pieces in a salad spinner.  Give it a whirl or two, and the seeds get spun out!  If you don’t do this or something similar, they will make the crust soggy.

Country Style Tomatoes

Tuesday, October 19, 2010

When my parents came for a visit, they brought buckets of fresh tomatoes from their bountiful garden in Michigan.  It was a treat to have such delicious tomatoes that we tried all sorts of recipes that I’ve been saving for just such an occasion.  This one came from Taste of Home magazine (July 2009 issue), and we all thought it was a great way to showcase tomatoes.

Mushroom and Zucchini Lasagna

Monday, July 12, 2010

We had some guests who avoided eating red meat last week, so I experimented with a new lasagna recipe to accompany our traditional meat filled dish.  I had cut this recipe out of Light and Tasty magazine a while back and had filed it in my to-try folder.  I’m glad I found it.  It was even popular with some meat lovers.  I believe I found the tomato sauce to be a little shy of what I needed, but my pan was bigger than 9x13.  I just stirred in a can of V8 juice, and it stretched it just enough.
