A Texas Vacation Cabin Guest Favorite – Bacon Wrapped Jalapenos!

Texas vacation cabins

There’s no surer sign of warm weather in Texas than the smell of delicious food being cooked over an open fire. The days are getting longer, and you’ll find yourself enjoying the mild days and evenings outside cooking and eating while warm breezes carry the aroma from the grill to passersby. While you relax and unwind on your vacation, try a laid-back outdoor meal or two during your stay at Mill Creek Ranch Resort. It’s so easy to do, whether you stay in one of our Texas vacation cabins with a grill or you’ve bought a cottage with an outdoor hearth. Isn’t it amazing how simple food can taste so good when you cook it outdoors? No restaurant needed, just bring a few ingredients and keep them in your fully-equipped kitchen during your stay. Here’s a favorite recipe of our Texas vacation cabins guests:

Bacon Wrapped Jalapenos

You’ll need:

6 fresh jalapeno peppers, sliced in half lengthwise and seeded
1 package cream cheese (8 ounces) (strawberry flavor is fantastic)
12 slices bacon

Preheat your grill to high heat. Spread the cream cheese onto the pepper halves. Wrap the bacon around the cheese-stuffed peppers and secure with a toothpick. Place them on the grill and cook until the bacon is crispy. Enjoy!

Note: You may want to wear gloves when slicing and seeding the peppers to avoid burning your hands.

How to Choose an Outdoor Wedding Venue for Dallas Weddings

dallas wedding venuesOf all the choices a bride makes for her wedding day, one of the most important decisions is where to have the wedding?  If you have chosen an outdoor setting for your Dallas wedding, you should keep a few of these tips in mind.

Consider the Weather – Dallas weddings are usually blessed with beautiful weather.  However, the heat from our Texas Summers could be just a bit too much for Dallas wedding guests.  Offering your guests cool refreshments and a decorative fan is a sure way to help them stay comfortable throughout the ceremony.

Scenery – Pick a place that will look as lovely as you on your wedding day.  You want to make sure the grass is green and the flowers are in bloom for your Spring and Summer Dallas weddings.  The piney woods of East Texas are a perfect backdrop throughout the year at Mill Creek Ranch Resort.  

Have a Backup Plan – When the weather is unpredictable you will need to make sure your Dallas wedding venue offers alternate space.  We have a variety of venue spaces at Mill Creek Ranch Resort.  Just ask our Wedding Coordinator, Carole, to help you find the right space for your wedding.

Lighting – Having an afternoon wedding is an ideal time to enjoy the sunset as the party comes to a close.   There will be plenty of light, and a romantic atmosphere created naturally at dusk.  Incredible pictures are to be had with a gorgeous Texas sky as the backdrop!  If you choose an evening wedding we have plenty of outdoor lighting to create the perfect ambiance for Dallas weddings.

Weddings at Mill Creek Ranch Resort are a bride’s dream come true, whether she chooses an indoor venue or prefers all the outdoor beauty of this resort location for her Dallas wedding.  Contact us for more information on Dallas weddings at 877-927-3439.

Texas RV Park Recipes

When visiting our Texas RV park you may want to try your hand at a guest favorite in one of our fire rings. Campfire Biscuits are not only delicious, they are fun for the whole family to make.  Here is our best recipe and instructions for Campfire Biscuits, also known as Biscuits on a Stick. TX RV Park recipe

Ingredients & Supplies:
Canned Biscuits
Campfire Coals
¾” Wooden Dowel
Cooking Spray
Butter
Jam

First thing you do is enjoy a nice fire with our complimentary first night’s firewood for every RV site.  When the coals are red hot and putting off a lot of heat you get out your dowels and spray the end so the biscuit will come off nicely once it is cooked.

Get out your canned biscuits.  We found that the cheapest and smallest biscuits always seem to work the best.  So don’t go getting fancy with the canned biscuit!  Now, start stretching your biscuit dough until it looks like a nice snake.  Then place one end on the tip of the stick and begin spiraling the dough down the stick.  Make sure to seal all holes or you will be sorry later when your fillings drip everywhere.  You want the dough thin, so it will cook thoroughly and quickly.

Recipes for a Texas RV Park vacation

Now, take your uncooked biscuit and stick and hold them like you’re fishing at one of our stocked ponds, with the biscuit end directly over the red hot coals.  If your campfire has a ring around it, this next part is fun and easy.  Roll the stick back and forth along the ring for nice even browning of the biscuit.

Once the biscuit is nice and toasty, remove the stick with a swift turn of the stick while holding your biscuit steady.

Now here is the best part.  Add your favorite fixins’ such as; butter, jelly, cinnamon and sugar, down in the cavity of the biscuit. Some rv campers use a sqeeze bottle for their fixins’.  If you are enjoying an East Texas sunrise, you may want to put some eggs and sausage in the middle.  So delicious!

We hope you will come visit us at our Texas RV park in Canton soon, and share pictures of your family enjoying Campfire Biscuits!

Characteristics of a Great RV Park – part 2 | RV Camping Sites

Our last blog post discussed three of the top 7 things to look for in a good RV park.  Today we will be talking about the other four things to be aware of when finding that perfect rv camping site.

Utilities – We know that when choosing an RV camping site you want to make sure there are proper utilities to accommodate your RV.  At Mill Creek Ranch Resort our RV camping sites offer  level concrete pads with full hookups for water, sewer and electricity at 20, 30 and 50 amp service.  We also provide daily trash pickup at your RV camping site.

canton texas rv camping sites

Park Location – Nothing is worse than pulling into an RV park expecting some peace and quiet and then to be inundated with road noise.  At Mill Creek our RV resort is set back from the main road, and has trees to buffer any noise that may intrude on your peace.  We pride ourselves in offering our RV camping site guests a resort experience, and that includes allowing them the quiet and peace of the East Texas piney woods.

Restrooms – When you are on the road, you expect your rv camping site to have a shower and restroom that is clean and well maintained.  We provide extra clean restrooms, showers and laundry facilities.  We want you to be comfortable no matter where you are in our rv park.  Again, only the best for our rv resort guests at Mill Creek Ranch Resort!

Internet Access – More and more rv camping site parks are upgrading their services to accommodate tech-savvy guests.  Mill Creek is no different!  We offer wi-fi and cable access to all of our rv camping sites.  Our friendly staff will help give you all the information you need to jump onto that information superhighway!
