5 Summer Dutch Oven Recipes

Afternoon gents, it’s Max from the Young Gentleman’s Guide here! One hobby that I’ve picked up in the last year and a half is cooking in a Dutch oven. This is yet another hobby that my grandpa enjoyed, and since I was given all his old Dutch oven recipe books, I’ve gotten to take a crack at some easy and delicious recipes that I wanted to share with you! So in this article, I’m going to share five recipes from the various cookbooks I’ve inherited, as well as one that I bought myself. These will fit well with the summer season, whether they’re recipes you can prepare in a vacation house, on a campfire, or anything else in between. These recipes will consist of one bread, one breakfast, one main dish, one side dish, and one dessert. So without any further delay, let’s get started!

4 Catholic Saints that Every Gentleman Should Look up To

Afternoon gents, it’s Max from the Young Gentleman’s Guide here! Today’s article will more or less be a continuation of this one that I put out a while ago about four historical figures that every gentleman should look up to. Today, we’ll be looking at a very specific type of historical figure, those canonized as saints by the Catholic Church. These are individuals who demonstrated a strong and ardent faith in life through acts of service, so much so that they’ve started to be viewed as holy by the Catholic Church. These acts of service can range from worldwide peacekeeping efforts, to countrywide missionary campaigns, to honorable military service, to mass distribution of the Sacraments. These are individuals whose life examples continue to be followed by those practicing and even not practicing the Catholic faith today. So without further delay, let’s get started!

“Watching the Mountains Grow”

Afternoon gents, it’s Max from the Young Gentleman’s Guide here! To start off, I want to start off with a sincere apology for not having up any articles in he last few weeks. I have been incredibly busy with work, applying for teaching credential programs, and trying to maintain a healthy relationship with my family and girlfriend, plus I’ve also had a hard time trying to find any inspiration to write for the blog. Lo and behold, that inspiration has come back and I should be back to my weekly posting schedule. Now to the point of today’s article, “I’m just watching the mountains grow” is something that my grandpa would say whenever he would sit out in the backyard at his vacation house and just gaze at the Eastern Sierra Mountains in all their majesty. It’s a phrase that has puzzled my family for years, but thanks to some inspiration from my sister and my grandmother, I now understand the meaning of what that phrase says. Today, I hope to share that meaning and wisdom with you. So before this article turns into a full-length novel, let’s get started!

Is There Such Thing as a Soulmate?

Afternoon gents, it’s Max from the Young Gentleman’s Guide here! In today’s article, we’re going to be talking about a question that’s been floating around romantic circles seemingly since the beginning: is there such thing as a soulmate? One person that you’re meant to be with forever? This idea has certainly become quite pervasive thanks to old fairy tales, the most timeless love stories, and popular media today largely reinforcing the ideas of those stories. While it can certainly be a difficult question to answer, especially considering just the sheer number of people in this world, I’m hoping I can provide a clear answer or explanation. So without any further delay, let’s get started!
