Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"A wonderful book with great recipes. Includes expanded options to incorporate into dining hall feeding to spice up the menu with a few simple touches to make meal time program time. I enjoy the introductions as a reminder and primer for important things you need to know for a novice as well as a great refresher for those of us who haven't done this for a while. Lots of great contributions from scouters. Readers can look forward to some tasty meals!"--Vincent P. Cozzone, Scout Executive/CEO, Venture Crew Advisor Crew 149, Waterloo, Belgium; Boy Scouts of America Transatlantic Council "Christine's and Tim's books are a wealth of cooking and camping knowledge that every novice and experienced camper/hiker should not do without. The recipes are clear and easy to follow and the preliminary "how-to" tips are invaluable for the planning work and safety advice, in order to "Be Prepared" for all possibilities. I think that everyone wanting to learn more about outdoor cooking should run out and get a copy for their cooking library!"--Michael Kaiserauer, Council Training Chair, Boy Scouts of America Transatlantic Council Reviews for the Conners's previous books: Lipsmackin' Backpackin':"Dutch oven, campfire, camp stove and box oven recipes are just some of the many that can be found in this cookbook." Scouting Life "Authors and avid hikers Christine and Tim Conners have collected and compiled recipes and tips from Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, and Scouting leaders all across the country representing the best in campout cooking for troops large and small. Each tasty recipe is accompanied by easy-to-read information about cooking method, basic essentials, and instructions. Everyone can enjoy healthy eating balanced by a little bit of indulgence . . ." Scouting magazineScout's Outdoor Cookbook:"A unique cookbook for all campers." Library Journal "Some of [the recipes] are a little wacky, but that's half the fun! The recipes are about good food." The News and Observer (Raleigh, NC) "You will love these great outdoor cooking recipes, and so will any other camping fan.... Plenty of recipes for every outdoor cooking situation.
