Some Camping Recipes and Photos!


Here we are again after an AMAZING long weekend that went much too quickly... Feels like we just got set up in Salmon Arm and we are already back in town... It was one heck of a fun weekend and although I did purchase more groceries this time with the intention of cooking I ended up on a liquid diet/scavenging again! HAHA!!!! BUT-- we did get some good shots of some of our creations..BANANA BOATS!!!! I've never had these personally and they were sooo yummy :)
YUMMM!!! I loved how everything went together so well. It tasted like a banana split

Another interesting concoction was taking these steaks that were just defrosted and injecting them with a roasted garlic & herb marinade to make them juicer and have more flavor after hanging out in a melting cooler for a few days... Our friends picked up this kit at Bass Pro Shops and its name is the "Cajun Injector- Injectable Marinade" for $8.95 and it comes with a reusable injector. I've never used one of these meat syringes before but thought it was a great idea for frozen steaks right out of the cooler

The main hit of the weekend was STILL the spider dogs.... We grilled up so many that we used all of the hot dogs available to us and then some! One person would start cooking these delicious little creatures and we would all break off a leg. Love the charred taste of each little leggy!

I thought of another recipe while we were camping that would taste great in some foil in the coals of the fire: BACON WRAPPED CORN!!!


  • 8 ears corn
  • 1 pound bacon


Gently pull back the husk exposing the corn. Do not remov

e the husk. Remove the corn silk and use a brush to make sure all the silk is removed. Soak the corn with the silks removed in water for 30 minutes. This

will prevent the husks from charring.

Preheat a FIRE! to medium heat.

Remove from the water and pat dry. Take a strip of bacon and wrap it around the corn. Fold the corn leaves back over, covering the bacon and corn. Tie th

e leaves with butcher string and repeat the process for each ear of corn. Place the ears of corn in the hot coals and cook, turning occasionally until bacon is cooked and corn is tender, approximately 15 to 20 minutes.


  • 3 oz pkg of cream cheese
  • 1 lb box of powdered sugar
  • 2 packets of cocoa mix or 1/2 cup of cocoa
  • 2 tablespoons of butter
  • 2 1 gal zip lock storage bags
Place all ingredients in one of the zip lock bags, close and put it in the next zip lock bag. Give everyone a turn at squishing the bags to mix. Mix until smooth... Enjoy!

Last year James and I even went ultra gourmet and prepared crab!!! This sounds ultra lux but the truth is crab is one of the EASIEST meals to prepare.

  • Bring a large pasta pot full of salted water to a boil
  • Once boiling submerge crab for 10-12 minutes depending on the thickness of the claws
  • Use tongs to drip-dryand serve HOT!
  • Make sure to have some melted butter close by for cracking
This one is probably best made on the first night when the crab is still fresh.
