    How to Use a Pie Iron

    On our campout to Salt Springs Recreation Area we experimented using a pie iron I had gotten my husband for Christmas. This post should probably read “How Not to Use a Pie Iron”. I think we did absolutely everything wrong when we used it for the first time. So learn from our mistakes so that when you try it, you’ll be an expert Pie Iron Camp Chef. Seasoning The first thing you need to do with your new pie iron is to season it. No this isn’t added seasoning to your grilled cheese sandwich, this is seasoning your it before you use it so your food doesn’t stick to it.…

    Kayak Supplies For Amateurs

    If you have read my blog about Blue Spring State Park, you already know that this was our first time taking the kayak out on the water. This was a great place to start for amateurs. The workers at the launch site were very helpful. The water was relatively calm and not overcrowded with other boaters. Plenty of room to work out the kinks and learn how to kayak. It took my husband awhile to get his balance with the kayak and learn how to maneuver it. Evidently it is different from a paddling a canoe. He quickly got the hang of it and paddled up and down the St.…

If you have been to any campground recently, you have had to see them. They are perfect for camping. They…

    Campfire Popcorn

    I found the coolest camping gadget on Amazon.  It’s a popcorn extension handle for Jiffy Pop.  Technically Jiffy Pop is not suppose to go over a “campfire”, but honestly that is what Jiffy Pop is made for.  The problem with putting Jiffy Pop over an open flame was the handle became too hot to hold.  Enter my newest find, the Popcorn Extension Handle. Problem solved. Popcorn Extension Handle This handle was so easy to put the Jiffy Pop on.  Just place it in the hole, make sure the little metal hook at the top is affixed, then secure the Jiffy Pop handle to the Popcorn Extension Handle with the metal…
