My favorite piece of camp cookware is my cast iron dutch oven. With it, I can make anything that I can make in my kitchen. Roasted chicken, cherry pie, pizza, corn bread. I am told you can even make yeast bread, though I haven't tried it yet ... too much trouble kneading and raising.

Hi! I have fond memories of camping with my family when I was young. We started out in tents and eventually went to a trailer. Will you be tent camping, cabin camping or trailer camping?
Coffee in the open air has got to be one of THE best aromas ever! Bacon, too! We would usually have at least one breakfast of scrambled eggs with bacon. You could use turkey bacon, low sodium/light spam, or turkey ham.
Turkey or chicken or low fat beef hot dogs on whole grain buns.
Burgers and ditto the whole grain buns.
Fresh veggies and fruits!
Oatmeal in the morning is another treat, especially if it's going to be cool!
I'm pretty sure my Mom would prep as much as possible ahead of time and repackage foods so that they took up less space. While it seemed like a lot of work before hand, when it was time to actually cook, everything was already done, so it was much easier!

We are going on our first camping trip next weekend and I am trying to find healthy but kid friendly AND easy to make camping recipes. I have not had a chance to go through all the recipes in the cookbook to see if they are "camping" style or "camping" adaptable recipes. Any suggestions?
