Hey guys, Sorry for the lack of any posts or updates on the regular as of late. I have been sucked into Pinterest and getting ready for our first big camping trip of the year. (which also means I have been getting all my plants ready for going outside and living without me for almost a week.
But more on that later.
In all of my Pinterest-ing I have discovered a big lack of actual real ingredient recipes for cooking in a Dutch Oven over a fire. There are a lot of basic “how to cook in a dutch oven over coals” posts, but not many recipes. My best friend bought me one for Christmas a few years ago and I have never really had the opportunity to try it out (well, I did once, but I forgot it on the kitchen counter when we left for the mountains).
Here is the thing, I want real recipes. Not ones that include other things that have 36 ingredients themselves. That is one of my biggest pet peeves of pinterest recipes… When people say “Only 3 ingredients” but then those three ingredients contain 100 ingredients combined and half of them are shelf stabilizers, preservatives and colour. I want some legit real ingredient recipes. Do you guys have any to share? They don’t necessarily have to be specific to Dutch Ovens, but that would help. I’m new to this Dutch Oven thing, but I can bake up a storm in a regular oven. I want to be able to do the same with just a campfire.
For this trip I have decided that I am making biscuits for sure. I found a real recipe… one that I can pre-assemble all the dry ingredients, then just add water at camp (I should mention that we are completely off grid there).
Since I have been so lacking in anything recipe or craft related around here for a while, I will be trying to get some posts written/photographed while we are out there. My biscuits could be a fail, or they could be the best biscuits I’ve ever had.
While I’m here appealing for recipes, any sort of cooked-over-the-fire (or in the coals- you get the idea) recipes would be fantastic. Especially for things that don’t require refrigeration. Our cooler space is limited. And unless someone makes the big trek down the mountain to town, we won’t have ice to replenish, so it would be good to have a few things on standby for those occasions.
Thanks everyone! I can’t wait for some new suggestions to try out. (and sorry for the lack of photos on this post)
