Lillie S. (We didn’t get a picture, but received an awesome email from her dad!)

“Your last issue that Lillie received in the mail was perfect for her!  You provided a list of ideas to get her excited for 2018 by getting her input on setting goals for her to work on.  I talked her into hoping to visit Yellow Pine and then she filled in the rest!”

Ants on a Log??? Berries on a Branch?? Beans on a Stalk???

Ants on a Log???  Berries on a Branch?? Beans on a Stalk???

You’ve heard of ants on a log? Well we’ve kicked it up a notch and made “Berries on a Branch” and “Beans on a Stalk”! For the “berries”, fill your celery with almond butter and top with blueberries. For the “beans” put some guacamole (we made our own!) in the celery and top with black beans. Delicious! Send us your variations for a chance to win a $25 Barnes and Noble gift card! Cheers!

TKT – Campfire Hobo Stew!

TKT – Campfire Hobo Stew!

Camping season is here!!!!!!!!!!  (We are a little excited, can ya tell?)

We are headed into the mountains this weekend with family for some fun, fishing, hot springing, river relaxing, campfires and star gazing. I have to admit – I don’t do the tent thing anymore, I put in many a nights in the flimsy tent in an even flimsier sleeping bag.  Here is a picture of our “tent”!


On to the food!  We recently posted on Facebook about “eating the rainbow” and how it’s a great way to make sure you get all of the vitamins and nutrients your body needs. Well, just because you are camping in the woods, cooking over a campfire doesn’t mean you have to stick to hot dogs and canned beans!

We decided to do a Rainbow Hobo Stew – check out these veggies!


The sky is the limit when it comes to this camping favorite. Use what’s local, use what’s in season, use what you like, use what you haven’t tried before! Just chop it all up, add a little olive oil, salt and pepper, wrap in foil then cook over a BBQ or hot coals!


Give it about half an hour or so, and voila!:

HOBO STEW 3Ready to jump in the car and head for the woods? Don’t let me stop you – here is the recipe!!

Ingredients (this is for 2 people, so adjust accordingly!)

*1/2 pound Italian sausage (casing removed, sausage crumbled) – you can always use diced chicken breast, grass fed beef, or portobello mushroom instead

*1 purple sweet potato, peeled and sliced into rounds

*1 carrot, peeled and sliced into rounds

*2 stems of kale, stem removed, chopped

*1/2 red pepper, diced

*2 crimini mushrooms, sliced

*1/2 red onion, diced

*1 clove garlic, chopped

*lemon slices

*olive oil

*salt and pepper to taste


Prepare ingredients. Divide between 2 pieces of foil. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Roll edges to seal everything in (we doubled up on the foil just in case!). Cook over hot coals or in a BBQ on medium heat for about 30 minutes, until everything is cooked through.

Unwrap and enjoy!!
