Do you love hiking, camping, or backpacking (or all three)?!
Do you cherish memories huddled around a campfire, sharing stories, and enjoying the calm of nature?
And, when sitting around the fire, do you want to share a delicious, healthy meal (not some overly salted just-add-water meal pouch)?
Well, friend, me too! You’re in the right place. Welcome to the Backcountry Kitchen!
I’m Rebecca, both a food and outdoor lover based in Fort Collins, CO. During the winters I ski; during the summers I hike.
The food and experiences around a campfire are among my favorite parts of camping. Everything tastes SO much better when its made over a campfire, so why just limit your campfire creations to hotdogs or freeze-dried slop?!
I share my favorite hikes, camping spots, and original camping recipes here. The Backcountry Kitchen is all about the food and community we create in the beautiful, wonderful outdoors.
As well as encouraging all of to protect and encourage our beautiful earth. You can make wonderful campfire meal without a bunch of single-use plastics!
