21 campfire cooking recipes

Welcome to camping season! I’m an outdoorsy girl and love to camp. Back in those pre-kid days, we used to go every summer! And I mean campingโ€”in a tent, in the woods, with a fire pit.

I recently talked about our family attempting to go gluten-free. No, we don’t have any gluten intolerance or even much sensitivity to it (that we know of), but we think it’s a healthier decision for our family. We started slow as we figured out things to avoid and what to buy. We are still learning where to find everything we need in the grocery store (or in the multiple stores we need to visit as a result). Recreating recipes has been the hardest part as we completely change the way we’re used to doing

14 Fresh & Fruity Spring Pies: Celebrate Pi Day!

~This post on spring pies was written in a partnership with foodie.com. All opinions are my own!

When I was in high school I had the best math teacher ever. Okay, maybe math was my favorite subject anyway, but this teacher celebrated PI DAY! You know that number, 3.14? 3.14159 is as much as I ever remembered of the entire number, which is never-ending, but 3.14 is March 14th… Pi Day! Our calculus teacher would bring in a bunch of pies and we’d spend the period eating ๐Ÿ™‚ YUM.
