Camp style vanilla pudding

A family favorite around our campsite has always been instant pudding.  It has always been made by the children. You see, I have long felt, the cook is on vacation, too, so others need to pitch-in.  This pudding is easy enough Dad, as well as toddlers, can make. Afraid you might not have enough milk   Read More >>

Lemonade recipe for one or more

Water may be best but I do enjoy a nice tall lemonade on a sunny day.  Heck, I enjoy a glass of lemonade on cold, cloudy days.  There is something about this beverage that just reminds of a summer.  But when you live in a 31-foot motorhome with a refrigerator about twice as big as   Read More >>

In my pantry is –

The RV is parked in front of the house and loading begun. Our annual conversion from stationary home-based residents to mobile full-time RVers has begun. Fred and I may debate over what clothes to bring but there is no debate when it comes to pantry. We have learned, while there are grocery stores everywhere, not   Read More >>

Stressed is Desserts spelled backwards

Melt a pad of butter or margarine in a skillet.  Add prepared fruit (I used cherries, halved and pitted but sliced peeled apple works, too) to skillet.  If you have, and want, sprinkle some sugar overr the fruit and stir to mix.  Cook over campfire until fruit is tender.  Sprinkle cookie crumbs over the cooked   Read More >>

Biscuit recipe

How can you have a campfire and not make S’mores? How can you have meat sauce smothered spaghetti pasta without garlic bread? And how can you eat beef stew without biscuits? At least, that is how it is in my house, or motorhome. The S’mores and garlic bread are easy on a campfire but biscuits   Read More >>

Can’t beat these – Biscuits

How can you have a campfire and not make S’mores? How can you have meat sauce smothered spaghetti without garlic bread? And how can you eat beef stew without biscuits?

Nothing Fancy Spaghetti

Enjoyed a pleasant evening visiting with Jim Gorman, a contributing editor for Backpacker magazine, and John Molloy, author of 33 books on the outdoors, at Rucker Canyon Forest Camp in the Coronado National Forest. This is the yummy pasta dish Jim made for all of us. It was fun watching him create and making do   Read More >>

Slurping Ice Cream Soup

A great “child-made” dessert is Ice Cream Soup. Here are three recipes developed my children a long time ago and a basic “Go-to” recipe. Each can be served immediately or stored up to an hour in a refrigerator or ice chest. The secret is you must be able to slurp your ice cream soup. Chocolate   Read More >>

Simple and Easy Mult-grain Bread

Never been a big fan of the soft and mushy white bread you can buy in a grocery store. Back in my “Holly Homemaker” days, we would mix slices of that stuff (without crusts) with Elmer’s white glue to make gooey dough and shape into things used in making jewelry. IMHO, that is about the   Read More >>

Let them eat snack cake

I like to bake but not a great fan of dish-washing. My mother didn’t like dishes, either. Here are a couple of my mom’s recipes that are easy to make, taste great, and present minimal clean up. Prefect for an after school snack or when you want a not-to-sugary snack. Both serve 9. Spice Snack   Read More >>
