Double duty post - Food Rendezvous and Gourmet camping food recipe request!

Everyone, I will be volunteering with my friend and fellow blogger Ellen on Saturday at The Food Rendezvous.  This event is very inexpensive to attend ($10 if purchased in advance, $15 at the door) and should prove to be great fun for foodies, followers of local chefs, and cook book collectors alike!  There will be raffles, a jam making contest, workshops, presentations and book signings, as well as tastings from local artisans.  It should be a great time! 

The event is taking place from 4 pm to 10 pm on Saturday 8/28 at SPARC (685 Venice Blvd, Venice, CA). I will follow up with photos and a story or two after the event.

On to my next topic...I am planning a camping trip soon and wondered if anyone had some fun, unique recipes that are fairly simple to cook while camping, using a basic camp stove and one or two pots.  I am looking for atypical (not the usual hotdog or the dehydrated stuff they sell at camp supply stores).  So feel free to post your ideas here!  If I use your ideas, I will be sure to mention you when I return from my camping trip and will provide pictures for everyone to see!!

There are not too many summer days left, so enjoy every minute.  Have a fantastic weekend!

Chow for now!  :)


  1. Gabe & I always make shrimp spaghetti when camping :) one pot for noodles, the other for shrimp and marinara! Its fancy while camping but a little bit of a cleanup is required! HAVE FUN!
