The Campout Cookbook

If nothing else, the last year has brought us a new love for the outdoors. Families are spending more time outside appreciating their yards, parks and campgrounds. Some of you may have grown up doing all these outdoorsy things, but for a lot of us it’s kind of new. This might be the year for your first camping trip. Or you might finally getting around to installing that fire pit. Either way we have the perfect summer book for famlies, The Campout Cookbook.

summer book for families

Local families can pick up this book in store and head into their weekend ready to make the yummiest meals over the fire. The book features 75 recipes to make ahead and to cook at your campsite. Or backyard! The wood-fired skillet pizzas are delish and the you can never go wrong with fire-roasted veggies. This book will tell you what to make, how to make it and ensure that you have a good meal at the end of every day!

We also loved all the snack recipes that The Campout Cookbook included! Home made energy bars perfect for hiking, fancy s’mores to eat around the campfire at night and yummy dips to have as an afternoon snack. Plus -for mom’s and dad’s there is even a few specialty cocktail recipes easy enough to do at your campsite.

A Summer Book for Families that Will Bring You Together

You’re going to love all of these inspired recipes for cooking around the fire and under the stars. Illustrations by Emily Isabella bring out the fun that’s been missing in cooking. The author has even added in handy info for camping hacks and prep lists sprinkled amongst the recipes, such as Camp Cookery Essentials and the The Ultimate Camp Kitchen. It’s pretty much the only book you’ll need to feel like a pro camper.

The Campout Cookbook delivers plenty of guidance about cooking over an open fire or using a propane stove, plus problem-solving if it all goes awry. If you love camping but would rather be in charge of snack planning and camp-stove coffee than pitching a tent, this book is your ticket. In fact, the dedication reads “For Survivalists with Standards.” Read through and you’ll get all the info you need to start your camping trip. How to find a suitable campsite and build a campfire specifically for cooking over, and how to keep it going. Stargazing for city slickers. A troubleshooting guide. And the definitive packing list and camp kitchen essentials.

For sure, this is our favorite summer book for families -so don’t miss out! And in case you need a few other little things to make your camping trip perfect grab these goodies:

Good Night Virginia -The perfect book to put kiddos to sleep in thier sleeping bags each night.

Gold Bottle Opener -After the kids are in bed, pop open a cold one with this stylish (and practical!) bottle opener.

Reusable Dish Cloth -Clean off your plate, the table, or cook pot with this eco-friendly dish cloth.

Reusable Tote -The perfect bag to pack your camp kitchen in and then use for the rest of your trip!
