Get Your Camp On

I’m so excited about the coming month! I am partnering with Better Batter, one of my favorite brands of gluten-free flour, and several other bloggers for the first-ever Great Gluten-Free Campout.

Camping is one of those final frontiers of a gluten-free life. Once diagnosed, we celiacs first shy away from restaurants and flour-centric dishes like cookies and bread. Slowly, we find some restaurants with gluten-free options and a short list of go-to recipes, and life gets a little more normal.

But camping? You’re asking a gluten-free person to be away from their normal products, away from their safe kitchens and often times at the mercy of whoever is cooking for the campout. Frankly, it’s easier to stay home. So that’s what we do.

Not any more!

For the next four weeks, the four of us bloggers will each be creating gluten-free campout meals in four categories: breakfast, snacks or sides, in the fire (main dishes) and dessert. By the end, you’ll have an arsenal of 16 go-to recipes for all your camping needs!

I was an over-achiever and made two extra recipes, so really, you’ll have 18. 

Accidental Okie Camping 5I went out to the lake with my friend and camping cook aficionado Rick Fry. Not only is Rick a famous painter whose works are in the Oklahoma capitol, but he is also an accomplished dutch oven cook.

Here is a preview of what you’ll see from my blog throughout the series.

What can I say about mojito punch? It’s sparkly. It’s limey. It’s minty. It’s sweet, but not too sweet. It completes me.
