A campfire baked brie appetizer. Spicy miso ramen for dinner. Skillet apple pie with cognac butter for dessert. Doesn't that sound better than hot dogs for your next family car camping trip?


How about making your rock climbing lunch break a culinary delight with lentil farro salad or a pressed sandwich made extra zippy with a layer of cilantro jalapeño pesto?


Need fuel to face a cold morning in the backcountry? Try a twist on a

familiar favorite with a summer sausage pesto omelet or enjoy something completely new like breakfast couscous with dates and tahini.
