Get Out Camping & Hiking

It's time to just get out.

campfire cooking

If there was one good thing that ever came out of a smoking addiction, this is it. Back when we were young and invincible, a smoking habit led to the acquisition of the Marlboro Cookbook. This is one of the many gems in that book. And, although the smoking days ended long ago, we’ve been making it as our special “last night at camp” meal for many years. It is awesome.

You don’t need to reserve this for camp, although I’m convinced that the great outdoors enhances its flavor. It can be broiled or grilled at home too.

Campfire Dutch Oven Beef & Beer Stew

This was adapted from a Marlboro cookbook that I have for campfire cooking. To make it easy, pack portioned spice mixes at home, label them, and bring them all together in one little cup to easily add to the stew without measuring. Worcestershire sauce can be measured and portioned for travel as well.

Chicken Pot Pie Mountain Pie

This simple, easy to make chicken pot pie was soooo good it demanded seconds from more than one person. We made it using canned refrigerated biscuits. Yum! Continue reading “Chicken Pot Pie Mountain Pie”

Pineapple Inside Cake

Wow was this good. This was the close second in the dessert category. It was gooey and delicious. We actually used donuts from a local bakery called Schorr’s (fabulous homemade donuts if you are ever in West View, Pennsylvania), but any plain cake donut will do. The idea came from Campfire Kitchen’s recipe list.

The First Official Mountain Pie Cook-Off

The First Official Mountain Pie Cook-Off – 2012

It happened. The three of us that made it camping came loaded up with three recipes each for mountain pies and each night we prepped, cooked, and shared our entries into the mountain pie cook-off. Continue reading “The First Official Mountain Pie Cook-Off”

Have meat. Will camp.

Camp Marinades Perfect for Travel

When we take longer camping trips, we cook. Nothing is better than a great meal after a day outside. But meat and marinades were made for one another. I mix them at home and put them in Mason jars. They don’t leak and are easy to carry…besides, prefer glass to plastic when the base is acidic. Continue reading “Have meat. Will camp.”

Sizzle in the Drizzle Camp Chicken Fajitas Recipe

Sizzle in the Drizzle Camp Chicken Fajitas Recipe

This is another camping favorite. Again, we have done this on the Camp Chef cook stove as well as the fire. Lately, the Camp Chef is preferred because it is so easy and allows us to reserve some firewood for later in the evening. This is really the only chicken recipe we’ve made. When we tent camped, we always had this the first night, given that we weren’t willing to keep chicken in a cooler for long at all. Now that the mini-fridge is in the Aliner, I guess we could keep it longer. I mix the marinade at home beforehand so we don’t have to carry all of the ingredients. The high heat makes this sizzle and brown just right. Continue reading “Sizzle in the Drizzle Camp Chicken Fajitas Recipe”

Cookhouse Eggs

A Breakfast Fit for John Wayne: Cookhouse Eggs

If there is one breakfast that we never miss while camping, it is this one. Such a great hearty (in more ways than one) that will give you the energy to tackle a great hike or spend the day biking. So good. It’s camp…live a little… Continue reading “Cookhouse Eggs”
