We're staying in the cabins in June, these are great ideas. I think I'll pack my crockpot and set some dinners to cook while we're at the parks. Thank you!

Or 2) We would also do the same with the hamburger/spices/tomato sauce for American chop suey. And 3) cook cut up boneless chicken breast in gravy and freeze. Then we'd just make a couple boxes of stuffing mix and some vegetables and voila. Yum!
I do this with my world famous chili. It tastes better the second day (I usually freeze some to take camping) and it is so easy, Just let it thaw during the trip, heat and serve. Also great with some french or italian gread for dipping. Now I am making my mouth water.

If you are looking for a roast recipe you have got to try this one. It is from the What's For Dinner Thread on the Community Board. Everyone over there raves about it. I've made it a couple of times and it is great. Sounds kinds weird with those 3 envelopes but it makes a fantastic gravy. Serve with potatoes or make sandwiches!

beef roast
1 envelope Ranch dressing mix
1 envelope Italian dressing mix
1 envelope brown gravy mix
1/2 cup water

Place roast in a slow cooker. In a small bowl, combine mixes and water. Whisk together. Pour over roast. Add some cut up celery and carrots to the pot. Cover and cook on low 7-8 hours until tender.

I also do this at home in the oven - 350 degrees for about 4 hours.

Here's one I got from Paula Deen's show:

Taco Soup

1 lb of ground beef, needs to be cooked first
chopped onion, to your taste
1 lg can of red kidney beans
2 sm cans of black or pinto beans (drained)
1 lg cans of chopped tomatoes
1 can of mexican style tomatoes
1 can stewed tomates (can use plain of for a little more kick get the ones with the grean chiles)
1 pkg taco mix
1pkg ranch dressing mix

Throw all of this in a crock pot and cook on low while you are at the parks. Serve with corn or tortilla chips, sour cream, and cheese.

My family love this, my husband say it tastes like an inside out burrito supreme.

Just wanted to say that I made the Chocolate pudding Cake stuff for Father's Day, it went over wonderfully. We had it with whipped topping and vanilla ice cream. Thought it tasted just like the hot fudge sundae cake from Shoney's! Yummy!

recipe from the cooking thread

Macs I was just fixing to ask if anybody had some Kabob recipes. I'm wanting to do some Kabobs as well. I have some shrimp so I'm thinking of making beef, chicken and shrimp. Not on the same stick though. Maybe we can do some one night.

Peg got some at our Kroger that we seasoned and marinated before freezing. I am thinking of doing some grilled shrimp on the 4th as well. Maybe a lime and garlic sauce....For the beef we used redwine, garlic, onion powders, montreal seasoning, the chicken is just salt and peper, will put some fresh lemon on it while grilling.,,,,,,,Getting hungry now.

This would be great money saver at Fort Wilderness as my children would not be begging me to buy the chocolate cake they sell at the Meadow and Settlement. I have also heard you can cook desserts in a crockpot. Any camping friendly ones to share?

For microwave cakes, the typical recipe is one package of cake mix. One can of pie filling and 3 eggs. You can use chocolate cake with cherry pie filling, lemon cake with lemon pie filling. Spice cake with apple pie filling. Mix and match any flavors you want. I typically add 1/4 cup of applesauce to the mix if I use a pie filling with big chunks of fruit it in like the apple or the cherry. You microwave the cake on high for 1000 watt ovens just 1/4 of the time you would normally bake the cake. If you microwave has a higher wattage, microwave at 75% power. Let the cake sit for 1/4 of the microwave cooking time. When the cake is done, it will start to pull away from the edges. The center may still look wet, but during the cooling off time, the microparticles are still cooking the food eventhough the oven is off.

Or, you can take a can of german chocolate cake icing. Spread the icing on the buttom and sides of the pan. Make the cake according to directions. Use applesauce instead of oil for a lower fat cake...place the cake mix directly over top of the icing. Cook for 1/4 of the regular oven cooking time. Let cake sit for 10 minutes, then flip over onto a cake plate. Let the cake sit with the pan on top for another 10 minutes. The cake absorbs the liquid from the icing causing the cake to be really moist and yummy!

Crock Pot "Dump" Cake

I got this recipe from my cousin and make it often. It can be doubled, I increase the cooking time a bit. Great served over ice cream!

Lightly grease bottom of crockpot. Place one bag of frozen peaches or 2 cups of fresh sliced peaches. Add 1 TBSP cornstarch, 1/2 tsp vanilla extract, 1/4 cup brown sugar and 1/4 - 1/2 tsp cinnamon. Toss to mix.

In a seperate bowl mix together 1 box of Jiffy white cake mix or 1/2 of a 181/4 ox white cake mix with 4 TBSP melted butter (mixture will be very thick); spread over fruit.

Cover and cook on high for 3-31/2 hours.

It comes out like a fruit crisp. You can use any fruit you want: frozen, canned or fresh. When using canned fruit I drain the liquid first.
