S'moreBy Eva Potter

Smells are known to evoke powerful memories, so why not make some new ones over the woodsy campfire.

The smell of delicious treats cooking over a campfire is just one of the wonderful things to look forward to on your next camping trip. But before you go, you might want to use a little technology to gather some wonderful recipes to take with you.

There’s nothing like a fire-roasted hot dog, but why not cook it with a twist. How about a cowboy onion and bacon hot dog, a Frito hot dog or campfire hot dog pups? Delicious toasted campfire burritos and veggies in foil packets are sure to please. These recipes and more are available at www.50campfire.com.

For dessert, nothing says camping like the quintessential s’more. We all know you need fresh graham crackers, creamy chocolate bars and perfectly toasted marshmallows for the traditional s’more, but step outside the safe zone and you’ll experience a world of fun s’more flavors sure to be a hit with kids and adults alike.

How about graham crackers, toasted marshmallow, banana slices and peanut butter? For a cinnamon toast s’more, combine cinnamon graham crackers, toasted marshmallow, butterscotch chips and white chocolate. Another interesting twist is the mint chocolate chip s’more with chocolate graham crackers, toasted marshmallow, mini chocolate chips and a peppermint patty. Carmel lovers will ask for seconds of a caramel apple s’more with cinnamon graham crackers, toasted marshmallow, apple slices and a Rolo candy.

Search “camping recipes” in your favorite browser and you’ll turn up a slew of delicious options for your next camping trip.

Time to call in sick, turn off the cell phone and pack up the car, because it’s time to go camping!
