In the early winter of 2005, Kirk and I brought out our first cookbook, Freezer Bag Cooking: Trail Food Made Simple.
Even 9+ years later, the book sells incredibly well – something I am very grateful for – we even had a few wonderful years of being sold in REI stores across the country:
(Waddling around REI while 8 months pregnant is painful at best….)
While doing some work on TrailCooking, I noted the few recipes that are on the website, and in the book. Enjoy!
Cranberry Chicken Rice – This recipe was for a “flagship recipe”. It came out of a trip, so many years ago, in the Olympic Mountains in winter. Eating FBC by a cold mountain stream? What more could one want?
Cheesy Couscous – My oldest son ate this on so many backpacking trips. For him, it was instant mac n’ cheese. Kids love it. What more does a parent need?
PB & Banana Wraps – Simple. No deep thoughts needed.
Fruity Couscous – A breakfast that may or may not work for you. It’s different. Make it with coconut oil, even better!
CyndiH’s Super Oatmeal – Extra healthy. We need that 😉
