Stuffed apples cooked over embers

When camping, there’s nothing more magical than ending our days around the campfire! We extend the evenings chatting and tending to the flames as we sing along together under the moon as though time were standing still. I love this moment, so simple yet so perfect.

Hiker’s energy balls

My favourite snack when I go on a hike is without doubt energy balls. They’re simple to transport, easy to eat on the trails, often better for your health, and always more environmentally friendly than overpackaged store-bought bars. I add several to a snack bag or an airtight container and savour them slowly while ambling down the trails. An energy ball snack gives me a little boost before a challenging climb!

I love anti-waste recipes. (Or rather, I hate to waste!) Camping is no exception. Over time, I’ve come up with all kinds of recipes to make use of those leftovers taking up real estate in the fridge’s cooler compartment. Because after a few days of planned meals, there are always leftover cooked vegetables and meat. This meal dip is one such recipe, perfect for making use of everything you have left!
