Since Halloween is right around the corner, and today marks our final Halloween Weekend (sniffle), I thought we’d share a pumpkin camping recipe.
Pumpkin Pie Cobbler
- 1 – 29oz. can of pumpkin
- 1 1/2 cups sugar
- 1 tsp. salt
- 4 large eggs
- 2 Tbs. pumpkin pie spice
- 2 – 12oz. cans evaporated milk
- 1 box yellow cake mix
- 1 stick of margarine or butter
Mix all ingredients ‘cept for cake mix and butter in large bowl with whisk.
Line inside of dutch oven with foil. Pour liquid into dutch oven. Carefully sprinkle dry cake mix on top of pie filling. Slice the stick of butter and spread slices onto top of cake mix.
Cover Dutch oven and begin the heating process. Cooking will depend on the amount of coals you have and your Dutch oven. Cook until cake mix turns golden brown.
Serve it warm or cold. If it’s a cool fall day, like we’re going to have this weekend, I’d go with warm. And maybe vanilla ice cream.

Now that the weather has gotten bit cooler and Fall is in the air, chili is always a fan favoritei. I know several of our campers have been making chili during our Halloween Weekends, because I can smell it cooking!
Next time you make a batch of chili, try these spicy crackers along with it. I bet you’ll love ‘em.
‘Bama Fire Crackers
- 1 2/3 cups vegetable oil
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon onion powder
- 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
- 2 (1 ounce) envelopes ranch dressing mix
- 3 tablespoons crushed red pepper flakes
- 1 (16.5 ounce) package multigrain saltine crackers
Place vegetable oil, garlic powder, onion powder, black pepper, ranch dressing mix, and crushed red pepper flakes in a 2-gallon plastic zipper bag. Seal the bag and squish it with your hands to really combine the oil and spices. Mix well. Place the crackers into the bag, seal, and turn the bag over and over to cover crackers with the spice mix. Let the bag sit for about 1 hour, then turn again. Repeat several more times until the crackers are well coated with spice mix, and allow the bag to sit overnight. Remove crackers and serve.
