“During the season, tacos are a weekly staple in our household because they’re fun and easy to make together,” Yankees Clubhouse Leader, Luke Voit, told The Post. “With the amount I travel, my wife Tori and I cherish the time we get to spend together cooking meals in the kitchen. We love making Pork Carnitas Tacos and sometimes enjoy them more than twice a week! The MLB Signature Yankees Dutch Oven is perfect for slow cooking the pork because it provides even heat and moisture distribution.”
“Every holiday my grandma used to make sweet potato casserole when she came to visit,” said Chicago Cubs Right Fielder, Jason Heyward. “She would always let me put the marshmallows on the top at the end and it’s one of my favorite childhood memories. My wife is the chef in my life now and she makes Grandma’s sweet potato casserole all the time and even lets me put the marshmallows on top. The MLB Signature Cubs Dutch Oven is such a fun addition to our kitchen and it’s incredibly versatile. I love that it can be used from the stove to the oven to the table so we only need to use one pot!”
“My parents always cooked at home when I was growing up and we would eat together as a family,” said Red Sox Debut Pitcher, Adam Ottavino. “After I left for college and later was signed as a professional baseball player, home-cooked meals were missed as I was often eating out or ordering in. One of the first meals my wife cooked for me when we were dating was her mom’s spaghetti with meat sauce and fresh ricotta cheese on top. We’re married with children now and cooking together in the kitchen is one of our favorite things to do. I love the meat sauce with angel hair pasta or zoodles, but my daughter Bradley likes it without the ricotta cheese and enjoys it with steamed broccoli on top instead. My daughter Oakley likes to eat it with her fingers. The MLB™ Signature Red Sox Dutch Oven is just so high quality and great for cooking hearty sauces. No matter what team I’m on and what city I’m in, having our family meat sauce always makes me feel like I’m home.”
“I don’t usually cook during the baseball season, but my wife is amazing in the kitchen and we always try to create many different recipes together,” 2019’s “Player to Watch,” Edwin Rios, told The Post. “Chicken Pozole Rojo is a recipe we like to make a lot because it still gives us the Spanish feel of my childhood but it’s super quick and easy to put on after a game. As a professional baseball player, I feel like I never have time to cook, but Le Creuset’s Dutch Oven has made it so fun and easy to cook with my wife – even though I’m just the sous chef! The MLB Signature Dodgers Dutch Oven is my go-to when making meals with my wife during the season and it’s perfect for soups and stews!”
