Cookbook Review: Camping & Hiking
Last week it was The Trailside Cookbook by Don and Pam Philpott.
I don't usually bother with camp cookbooks. If you know how to make pancakes, stew, or foil packets you cover 60% of camping cookbooks. They can seem like introductory cooking guides...over a fire.
I was pleasantly surprised at this cookbook. Not only does it go into how to dehydrate using an oven, but it includes recipes which are a bit more complex without being too gourmet. Things my kids might eat. Things I wouldn't mind trying at home. And the snacks section was interesting. Healthy stuff I can make at home.
I'm still looking through it. I hope to offer a favorite recipe soon.
I apologize for the bad photo. I was trying to cut out the library tag for privacy's sake.
