Summer is here and camping season is upon us!! 

I love to camp.

Ok… I like to camp, but it must be on my terms.

I am not a tent in the woods, sleeping on the floor, cooking with one pot and one flipper over an open fire, kind of camper. I’ve been there, done that, have the burn marks and mosquito bites to prove it.

My husband may be able to survive canoeing and portaging for over 100 kilometers easy peasy, not having showered in a week, but that’s why I birthed him some children. They can join him in the woods… with the bears and the bugs.

I will stick to my trailer in the heart of Muskoka. That’s camping glamping my way. To make that even easier on me, I’ve come up with a few #FoodHacks to help make it as relaxing a time away as possible. Who wants to spend hours in the kitchen on their summer holidays?! That was rhetorical… not me!!

Speaking of Camping!

Who can go camping without making the Canadian camping food staple… S’MORES?!

What You’ll need:

  • 1 large bag of Marshmallows
  • Boxes of Christie’s Chips Ahoy Middles
  • Marshmallow roasting sticks 
  • Campfire

Kid Tested – Kid Approved! 🙂

Here’s another recipe worth bookmarking for this summer.

Who can resist FRESH Canadian Corn-on-the-Cob?!

What You’ll Need:

1/4 cup Kraft Rancher’s Choice dressing
2 TBSP. finely chopped chives
4 ears of corn on the cob, husks and silk removed

What You’ll Do:

Heat barbecue to medium-high heat.

Mix dressing and chives.

Rinse corn; gently shake off excess water. Grill 12 to 15 min. or until tender, turning occasionally and brushing with dressing mixture for the last 3 min.
