Great Ruthe--

Let's keep this thread going. I know how to get books printed and made inexpensively.

As a group, you can put everything together and publish your cookbook (for individual printing) on CafePress. They'll create cups, cookbooks, sweatshirts, t-shirts, dang near anything... cheap!

Nancy (in Oregon) put the Oregon Gathering out on CafePress years ago. And, it's become quite popular. The best part... no out of pocket expenses! I created a cookbook for Mike Sanders years ago... he had it available on Cafe Press. Don't see it now, however. All I had to do was provided him (the owner of the CafePress site page) a PDF.

Donna--

I have become adept at making books and self publishing them via CreateSpace. CreateSpace is owned by Amazon and all books are put up for sale on Amazon so the Escape cookbook would be available world wide and it's absolutely free. I have self published many books this way. We could offer it printed or as an ebook. All proceeds can go to the Sierra Club or some environmental group.

Our camping for the past 30 years has been vegetarian cooking -- lacto ovo -- now we are eating meat and fish and chicken again so this trip to get our trailer is going to be a whole cooking adventure for me (Terry does NOT cook) and I would love to see what other people cook besides steaks on the grill.

Using just the BBQ, stovetop and campfire, there are a myriad of yummy dishes to cook, more than one could ever make in a lifetime. Of course, we all have favourites. Salmon and chicken breasts are good staples, and of course we love a good steak once in a while too. We do Indian dishes, homemade mac & cheese, grilled sandwiches, etc, etc........

One thing we do while camping, that we do different from home, is to mostly cook proportionate meals, ones we know we will finish, so we have no leftovers.

We do a few meals that take a fairly long prep time, on days we hang around camp more, but mostly do quick and easy meals, especially when on the go. This is where chicken breasts or fish are great. A good Spicy Italian or Chorizo sausage can be cooked up quick too, and you can toss a few cut of veggies in the same pan. 15 minutes cook time while you get dishes, salads, and everything else together, and you are eating in no time. Almost as fast as heating up an old meal in a microwave, but more fresh and tasty.

Recipes and such would be a great idea. Maybe we could just gather what everyone is doing and put it together. I don't have a problem doing that ....

Maybe we should just start a thread called "Cookbook" and let the recipes collect there.
