Great trailer cookbooks? Know of any?

This one is Ruby Ann Boxcar's ''Holiday'':santa2 special edition cookbook. Amazon.com sez, ''one of these should be on the coffee table of every RV in the country.'' Hey Casita, where's my coffee table?

<img src=http://images.amazon.com/images/P/0806523506.01.LZZZZZZZ.jpg/>

Ruby Ann has a second trailer cookbook, believe it or not. (I suspect that she eats a lot of her own cooking.):censor

No, No, I'm not recommending either one!:weep

Seriously, I hear that some day Lori S. may re-publish her Dutch Oven cookbook. Now, that will be one to anticipate!



(Thanks, Michael for the ''Censored'' Smiley. Mary F. sez she really had to intimidate you to get you to set it up! Yeah, right!)

:xmass Hey, George! Are you tryin' to get me fired?


And, come to think of it, shouldn't this thread be in the Jokes section?:cblob At least the Okra! thread had a recipe or two at the beginning...

Mary F. did it!

Yep, Mary won the Grand Prize from Amazondotcom!:flowers

Mary was the first (and only) to order Ruby Ann's 'Down Home Holiday' Cookbook.

Ruby Ann's going to come over to Jonestown and cook Christmas dinner :santa2 for Mary. (Get the guest room ready, Mary.:censor)

Dinner will include okra cassarole with deep-fried onions on top, in addition to her traditional fried turkey legs.


Now, seriously, are there any good camping cookbooks that you like?

I have many cookbooks...

...some of which I've actually looked at a time or two. :wink

It's been brought to my attention that (some) people get nervous (or something like that) when they see my name as the latest to post anything on the Food & Recipes board. :shame I don't know why that is...

That's why I went all day without answering you, George. Because I don't want anyone to be nervous. :nope

But, maybe it's not just me, since nobody else has answered either... so I'll (seriously) submit that about the only ''camping cookbook'' I've ever seen, much less liked, was an old Girl Scout handbook. And I've misplaced my copy!

Yep, (seriously, still) I'd sure be interested in getting a look at a good camping cookbook. I love cookbooks! (Ruby Ann's not included!)

It's been a long time since I did much cooking over a campfire... but I do have a cast iron dutch oven on my Santa list! :xmass

Cookbook Queen

George,
I have shelves and shelves of cookbooks, that is what my souveniers are from our trips, plus all of my moms, grandmothers and mother-in-law's cookbooks, but I have as yet to find a camping cookbook other than dutch oven, wild game and as Mary previously said, my trusty girl scout cookbook (lots of wild edible recipies). I did find a link to some great sounding recipies on-line at www.three-peaks.net/dutch_o.htm

So, that said,what do your taste buds crave? (other than White Castle's, mmmmmmm....mmmmm.) Do you want campfire recipies, Dutch Oven, or just good and easy recipies? I have some lovely Native American Indian cookbooks that might intrigue you, but you would probably have to harvest the ingredients first.

I am still recommending the Turbo Cooker for use in our little Scamp. I made almost all the recipies that came with the cooker while we were camping for a week in November. None took over 25 minutes start to finish and the ingredients were easy to store. The meals were great, nothing canned, and I didn't have to be outside in the cold, just enjoyed the campfire for warming my feet.

I'll keep searching for a REAL camping cookbook.

Karen

Thanks, Karen (a.k.a. Cookbook Queen and Pretty Black Kitty)

Thanks for picking up on this thread. We need more good people like you chiming in on these threads.

It looks like we should publish a new addition of the old Girl Scouts Cookbook. Oops, to be p.c., I should have said ''the Girl Scouts' old Cookbook.''

What's that Turbo Cooker? Even the name sounds intriguing. If it works in the Scamp, I bet it would work in our other fiberglass homes-away-from-homes. Perhaps you have a link or a photo? (Sounds like you might have posted this before, and I may have missed it.)

The ''Buffalo'' cookbook you mention sounds great--so far I've had a little trouble trying to download it. Drat 56k! But I will. I did see on the first pages a lot of good information on Dutch Ovens. Didn't know there were aluminum, in addition to the usual cast iron. Also the admonition not to buy the import models. Interesting!

B.t.w., I love your avatar, but my dogs don't.

Camp Cook Book

:wave Many many years ago (35) when we were young, Lori was the receptionist for a missionary organization called Wycliffe Bible Translators. This mission board had a kind of boot camp for its missionaries to learn the skills they would need working in remote South American countries. All of the wifes of the missionaries in the field, put together a cook book for themselves. They called it “The Jungle Camp Cookbook”.

Most of the recipies are absolutely, unbelievably good. This book turned Lori around from a non cook to a fabulous cook. One of the things that is in the book is that every primitive culture in the world makes some sort of bread. Sour Dough is at the heart of many of them.

The other thing I found interesting is that these resourceful women were able to make their American favorite recipies from native ingredients. One was “Mock Apple Pie” from soda crackers.

This is the most true camp cookbook I have ever seen.:wiggly

Mock apple pie

Oh man, Michael ... crumbled soda crackers and dates, along with some other stuff, topped with whip cream is my favorite pie (My grandmother made it for me, my mother made it for me, and now Pam makes it for me.)

Mary .... cheapest LODGE cast iron I've ever found was at

Pro-Vision Supply
PO Box 1714
Seguin, TX 78155
PHONE: 830-379-7373

They are a full line Lodge dealer and distributor. Is that close to you?
