Dutch Oven Breakfast Frittata We had the very tasty privilege of hanging out with the Valley Forge Black Pots at the Hamburg Cabela’s store during last week’s Camping Classic event. We tasted way more than our fair share of breakfast, lunch, dinner, and dessert samples. These folks are not only great Dutch Oven cooks, they are also super generous about sharing recipes with wannabes like us. I’m going to share a couple of the recipes here on our blog, but you can also head over and follow their Facebook page for lots more... Read More

Thanksgiving at the Campground: Turkey Sandwiches with Stuffing and Cranberry Sauce on Brioche Buns

There are so many ways to make a great Thanksgiving dinner at the campground. This year, my goal was to create a menu that is simple and made mostly in advance, but still features all the tastes of a traditional Thanksgiving meal. Turkey Sandwiches with Stuffing and Cranberry Sauce For years, I prepared a ‘leftovers’ meal on the Friday after Thanksgiving to bring to my grandmother who lived a few hours away.

Thanksgiving at the Campground: Pumpkin Bread Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting

In this series of blog posts, I’m sharing my personal recipes for simple menu items that can be made ahead of a holiday RV trip, but still hit all of the classic holiday tastes that we crave in a Thanksgiving meal.
