Easy Potato, Bean and Sausage Skillet

My husband and I went camping a couple months ago, and since food is always a big part of any vacation, I wanted to make sure that we had some tasty dinners planned. We only have a tent though, not a big fancy trailer with a gourmet kitchen, so I knew that any recipe I picked needed to be easy to prepare. ...more

Camping With A Baby

Kyle and I don't know much about this whole parenting gig, but we do know that babies are people. "People" don't like to be confined (ie. prison.) I don't know if we are crazy or just really simple minded, but where we go, the kid goes too....more

Everything You Need for Camping with Little Kids

Earlier this summer we joined The Hansons, for our first camping trip with the kids. We had a truly excellent time. Preparing was a lot of work-- as is preparing for anything with babies in tow -- but it was completely worth it. Before I post photos from our (one night) trip, I thought I’d share a bit about what we packed, what we forgot, and what we used. The ages of our kids are: Eleanor, 6 months; Clio, 2 years; Sam, 2.5 years. Here are the essentials: ...more
@Jenni Bost Well...we broke that rule for this camping trip. There weren't many toys, but the ...more
