Fuel outdoor fun with this family-friendly camping cookbook.
I LOVE this book for camp cooking with kids. The book includes lots of ways to make car camping and camp cooking fun. I love the perspective of using this time as a family bonding opportunity and creating lifelong shared memories.
That said, the recipes are pretty easy to make, kid-friendly, and delicious. I was able to find veggie recipes and a lot of healthy recipes (I think it can be easy to go total junk food when camping if not careful, and Amelia didn't go that route.) Plus, the book is the perfect size to slip into your camping cook kit and have at the ready on your next adventure.
Part camping guidebook, part camping cookbook, Amelia provides tips and tricks to make camping with kids go smoothly. The recipes, such as Breakfast on a Stick and Grilled Individual Macaroni and Cheese, will leave you excited to make creative camping meals that the whole family will enjoy. I appreciate that many of these recipes are easily prepped before the camping trip, providing more time to enjoy slowing down around the campground. The illustrations are adorable, and make this book appealing to adults and children alike! My young children even keep asking me to "read" the book to them, because the formatting is so delightful. The addition of activities, tips, and tricks to camping makes this book not only a cookbook but also a tool for families who are learning to camp!
I was so happy to see this cookbook is filled with over half new-to-us recipes - we read it like a book when it arrived and my three girls said "let's make that!" many times. And so nice to (finally!) get some variety with camp cooking...which is nice for the adults, too! Getting ready to test some out this weekend.
This book is fabulous! It's small and easy to pack in a daypack. I consider myself a camping cooking guru and there are tons of recipes in here that I have never thought of (or seen online)! I happen to be a Dietitian so healthiness is important to me and there is a great balance of healthy recipes too. I love how the book outlines exactly what you have to do to prep before the trip and exactly what you will need to do once you are camping. Throughout the book there are great camping songs/games that are creative and fun too! It also breaks down jobs that you can give your kids (based on age) to help. I was provided with an advanced copy of this book, but I would never leave a review that wasn't 100% truthful. This is a great gift item to buy a friend/family that camps a lot!
