A DIY for the Kids: Strawberry Ice Cream in a Bag. Happy Tuesday, I hope everyone had a great Memorial Day Holiday!

A DIY for the Kids: Strawberry Ice Cream in a Bag

The weather for us has been grey and rainy (thank goodness, we've been in a terrible drought.) But, with the rain, our Memorial Day plans were cancelled and I had a couple of bored and very unhappy children on my hands. I really hated having to break the bad news to them, since part of our plans included a sleepover with cousins... (Oh the tears and the drama!) Luckily, I had a few ideas to banish those tears and entertain my little guys. Have you ever made ice cream in a bag? My kids love making ice cream this way, and we hadn't done this since last summer. This fun and delicious little project is a tiny bit messy, so I do recommend doing it outside. Looks amazing right?

Toss with extra virgin olive oil, kosher salte and fresh cracked black pepper. Fold two large pieces of aluminum foil in half. Grill over medium-high heat for about 15-20 minutes until done. This should make enough to feed 4-6 people; however, it’s always nice to have some left over to use in omelets, soft tacos or sauces.

Campfire Cakes recipe

Camping desserts don't get any better... You don’t have to skip dessert just because you’re camping. In fact, these fabulously fudgy Campfire Cakes were designed to be baked and enjoyed while gathered around your campfire. Oranges just happen to be the perfectly sized natural containers to make our Campfire Cakes in. I happen to love chocolate with a hint of orange and that’s just what these cakes are.

Start by slicing off the top of each orange and hollowing out the inside. Make your brownie batter and fill each orange with the chocolatey goodness. You want to fill them a good inch under the brim of the orange keeping in mind that they will expand as they bake. When your fire has some nice toasty coals going, toss in the Campfire Cakes, making sure to rotate them around every once in a while to cook all sides. This Is How You Should Actually Be Eating Starbursts.

Grilled S’more Banana Packets. Welcome to week 3 of Gather Round the Grill!

Grilled S’more Banana Packets

So far, we’ve talked Cookout Sides and Cookout Main Dishes, but this may be the best week yet. It’s dessert week! I’ll be sharing sweet treats perfect for cookouts all week long, starting with these easy peasy Grilled S’more Banana Packets. Let’s just clear something up right now. Just because you’re camping doesn’t mean you have to eat bad food.

In fact, some of the most memorable meals I’ve eaten have been made over a campfire. But you don’t have to have a campfire to get that great smoky flavor. These S’more Stuffed Banana Packets are one of my favorite dessert recipes. I’ve enjoyed them on many a camping trip, huddled with friends around the fire, reminiscing, strumming the guitar, and sharing life together. All this goodness starts with a humble banana. Use a knife to slice through the peel and carve out a thin strip along the curve of the banana. Now the fun part! I like to stuff mine as full as humanly (bananaly?) Swoon a little bit.
