I rarely light campfires anymore. Fire danger, lack of easy-to-find wood, exhaustion after a high-mileage or steep day: There are many reasons I’ve mostly abandoned the blaze. For the most part, I don’t miss them. By the time the sun sets, I’m usually tired and uninterested in creating more work for myself. What I do miss is the camaraderie of a campfire. It’s a place to gather with your friends to pass a flask, roast marshmallows, share stories and tell jokes, and just generally enjoy each other’s company. For years, I’ve been looking for flame-free and fire-ban-appropriate ways to replicate ..read more

After 15 years as a vegetarian, there are very few things I miss. Steaks? Never a fan. Hamburgers? After a decade and a half away from them, I couldn’t tell you the difference between an Impossible Whopper and a real one. But there’s one thing that I still have a hard time replacing: marshmallows. For those of you who don’t obsessively read over the ingredient lists on your sweets, marshmallows contain gelatin, which is made from processed livestock bones and hides—a no-go for anyone who doesn’t eat meat. Yes, there are vegetarian marshmallows out there, which mostly use seaweed-derived agar ..read more

At the end of a long day of crushing miles, there’s nothing like sitting by the campfire, watching the flames dance and hearing the wood crackle (as long as the fire’s made safely and legally, of course). The only way to make it better is savoring a Michelin-star-worthy meal while sitting fireside. When preparing your backcountry menu, it’s easy to opt for a go-to hot dogs and s’mores combo, but there are so many more delicious meals out there. With these revolutionary campfire recipes, you won’t want to settle for anything less than all-plates-scraped-clean delicious. All you need is a burni ..read more

This Pancake-in-a-Mug Recipe Is Your New Favorite Camp Breakfast

Spare a thought for the campground pancake breakfast. Pancakes—flipped, stacked, and topped with butter and syrup—taste even better when you’re eating them at some picnic table out in the open air with the pine needles crunching under your feet and a whole day of hiking (or reading, or floating, or hammocking) ahead of you. But while pancakes may be a mainstay of car camping trips, they’re tougher to pull off in the backcountry, where the stoves are smaller and the titanium pans are prone to ‘cake-burning hotspots. Fortunately for all of us pancake-loving, baseweight-conscious hikers, there’s ..read more

Hot chocolate just got hotter. With a touch of cayenne added to the mix, this new take on a centuries-old beverage boasts a slight spice that will warm you all the way through. The Mayans were among the first believed to enjoy a chocolate beverage over 2,000 years ago, a key ingredient being a hint of spice. In homage, we took a page out of their book to give the traditional fireside staple a kick. To whip up this tasty blend, start by finding a hot chocolate mix that already has powdered milk included in its ingredients (we like Whole Foods 365 Organic Hot Cocoa Mix). That way, you only need ..read more
