So I love pancakes. I am also a little bit lazy so I don't make my own mix I prefer for someone else to deal with the mess of combining all the ingredients. You can fault me, but that is just how I feel about the whole thing.
CampEats was started as an experiment with a mission. This endeavor has always been to get families to connect to the outdoors through food. But how we were working to do that has changed a few times. It is about to change again, and this won't be the last time. And that is totally normal.
It seems like simplicity is all the rage right now when it comes to food culture. Now I am not talking about Paleo or Farm to Table cooking. You may have heard of the new app Not Recipies launched by the popular foodie blog Food52. It's all about things you've made a million times that you could explain how you made them in a few moments. Think that conversation you had with your neighbor about making asparagus where you shared that you like to use a little lemon juice and a pinch of sea salt to give the steaming water a bit of a punch.
Thanks so much to everyone who has tried a pack or just given your thoughts. We are curating some cool kits based on that feedback. The first is a two person Provision Pack - the Foodie for Two.
I am sitting here in what could be considered a bit of a disaster of a house and I am realizing It has been really a busy few weeks here at CampEats. No actual camping but lots of outdoor related fun. (My husband building mini campers - that is outdoor related right?)
S'mores have been on my mind the last few days. In one of our holiday cards, we got a lovely note from our friend Margaret on the topic of these gooey delights. With her permission, I've re-posted it below. I think my favorite part was the idea of sliced chocolate ala Kraft cheese. You can check it out here.
That lovely squash mentioned in our last blog post made its way up to our roof deck and got all roasty on the gas grill. This was the third preparation of this particular roaster. The first was oven cooking, then a charcoal grill, and finally on the gas powered grill - all in my pursuit of recipe mastery.
Here at CampEats we've been "testing" all the components of the Provisions Packs over the last few weeks. From some very tasty lentil soup to some wicked carrot cake pancakes I think we have already found a few winning dishes that will be sure to please. We are also working hard to make sure they all work togeather in harmony as a weekend full of meals.
