Gather Around the Fire! 14 Camp-Friendly Meals
For many families, camping is a can't-miss summertime tradition. While there are plenty of things to do after your family pitches a tent, there aren't always a lot of things to eat, forcing us to dine on canned beans, roasted wieners, and chocolaty s'mores (OK, that last one isn't so bad). Rather than sticking to the traditional camping fare, why not whip up a tasty dish that looks like it could have come from the oven? From early morning breakfasts to late-night treats, here are the best bites for you and your little ones to make around the campfire.
