Camping Tip: Travel Coffee Bags

Travel coffee bags … because I can’t leave my Starbucks behind when camping.


All you need are coffee filters, coffee grounds, and dental floss. I only used the red because it was festive … and festive works since we’re in Santa Claus, Indiana. :p

Camping Tip: Treat Tackle Box

Camping Tip Tuesday: Treat Tackle Box


These would be great for long trips. Because my four year old can’t decide which snack she wants … so having multiple options in this box is perfect!

As long as they don’t eat it all at once! :p

Rudy’s Recipe: Campfire Cinnamon Rolls

Remember those Campfire Cakes we shared a while back? These are similar and just as yummy!

Campfire Cinnamon (or Orange!) Rolls


You Need:

  • 4 Oranges
  • Canister of Cinnamon (or orange!) rolls

Make ‘Em:

Cut each orange in half. Scoop out the flesh and use for fruit salad or just eat them as is. 🙂

Open your can of cinnamon or orange rolls and put a roll in each orange half. Put the finished orange halves on a cookie sheet or something you can use on the campfire. Cover with aluminum foil and put them on the fire.

They will rise as they bake. Keep an eye on them. Once they have puffed and risen over the top of the orange, pull them off to check that they are done.

Add the icing and eat ’em up!
