Another pre-Camping Book

Last week, I wrote a post about the camping books we've been reading to get all psyched up to go camping this summer. Theresa at Lapazfarm recommended that we check out her son's favorite book -- Cooking on a Stick: Campfire Recipes for Kids.

Being nothing if not obedient, I immediately requested the book from the Library. Today we read this book -- cover to cover -- and now I'll need to immediately purchase this book. The recipes are wonderful. Linda White, the author, covers three types of campfire cooking: recipes for cooking on a stick, recipes for cooking in foil packets, and recipes for cooking on a grill/rack. And these are VERY kid-friendly recipes -- the sweets sound SWEET and the savories sound delicious.

The book contains 24 recipes (with suggestions for altering the recipes with other ingredients) and includes entrees, desserts and snacks. These would be fun recipes to make at home too (altho needing a bit of tweaking).

I'm so glad I'm obedient and listened to Theresa!

So glad you like it! And you are right about being able to make some of them at home. In fact, Superboy made Moose lips (p45) just last week. They are so hilarious!

I am going camping this summer too, I'll have to request this book for my birthday in June. Thanks for the review.
