The Best (and Easiest!) Camping Meals

The Best (and Easiest!) Camping Meals plus how to plan meals for camping. Outdoor adventure tips and camp cooking tips. 3 easy recipes to make when camping

When Sean and I go camping (or even if I’m solo camping), cooking meals is usually one of my favorite parts of the entire trip. I love cooking outside and using the camp cooking kit that I’ve honed over the years (more on that here). Plus, it’s a really fun opportunity for me to try out new camping meals and explore other ways to make do with what I have on hand while we’re in the mountains. I’m often asked what I make when we go camping, so today I wanted to share my top 3 easy camping meals that I make pretty much every time we go on an adventure!

Our Quick & Easy No-Bake Cheesecake Recipe

Quick and easy no-bake cheesecake recipe with seasonal summer fruit, made with the easiest cheesecake crust from pretzels! The perfect summer dessert for a bbq or picnic in cute mini mason jars

With temperatures heating up and small, safe summer gatherings on the rise, I thought this month’s recipe needed to be something easy and cool: meet the no-bake cheesecake! This recipe is the perfect throw-together dessert, ideal for impromptu gatherings or for the days when you do not want to turn on the oven. Since smaller gatherings seem to be the safest bet for getting together these days, these individual-sized treats not only take 20 minutes at most to make, they save you from having a half-eaten cheesecake lying around (not that there’s anything wrong with that…).

Warm Mixed Grain Salad Recipe with Roasted Fennel and Dandelion Greens

Warm Mixed Grain Salad Recipe with Roasted Fennel and Dandelion Greens. Easy vegetarian or vegan lunch idea. Simple side dish for a picnic or summer bbq

We have arrived! The time of year where patio dinners can finally happen. As you know, Joanna has a pretty nice outdoor dining setup, so I wanted to create a recipe that would be the perfect addition to any summer BBQ or chill evening dinner: a warm mixed grain salad recipe topped with roasted fennel and dandelion greens. This month’s dish can be served as a side, but is hardy enough to be a delicious vegetarian or vegan main dish with the flexibility to omit the shaved parmesan. As food trends move in a greener direction, I thought it would be fun to explore some delicious meat-free options. With this salad, it’s not missed at all. The addition of crushed green olives gives it a hearty texture, while the briny flavor complements the floral and bitter flavors of the dandelion greens perfectly. Get ready to eat this all summer long!
