Campfire Recipe Ideas

After trying Rob’s ‘Secret Special Campfire Beans’ recipe over our last camping trip, it got me to thinking about campfire food and wondering whether it was possible to find any decent recipes.

However that hasn’t always been the case. In years past, short on time, money and organisational skills already maxxed out on juggling freelance work, a full-time job, blogging, training and attending university in the evenings, I would be lucky if I met my fundraising target a few days beforehand, let alone weeks or months.
