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.
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.
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.
A big thank you to everyone who came out last weekend to make s'mores with us at our first Fireside Gathering. We had a ton of fun and we've been able to gather a few "findings" about s'mores. To help distil them for your use we've created a top 10 list of what I like to call S'more Science. And let me tell you we used rigorous testing methodologies. Though they may have been clouded by the copious amounts of sugar from all the sweets, but we'll still share them in the name of all things that are fun about camping.
CampEats isn't just a blog where I talk about camping related topics. It is a company with a mission. And it will shortly have its first product that will deliver on the goal of "connecting families with nature using food".
