Camping Recipe ~ Cinnamon Rolls On A Stick

This camping tip is an “oldie but a goodie”. We have made these since I was little but they always turn out great and are a awesome treat while  camping in the wilderness. All you need is a clean stick, and a can  of cinnamon rolls. I normally have the kids go on a nature hike and look for good cooking stick on the path. We then use a knife to cut the bark off and make a clean surface to cook the  dough on. If you do not have a stick you can just use a roasting stick. Open up your can of cinnamon rolls and start to unwrap it on your stick. Make sure it is  wrapped on there good so it does not fall off while cooking. I like to use the canned biscuits or rolls for this, because you can use toss then in your cooler for easy transport until you are ready to use them.

To cook, place over an open fire, twist or slowly spin your stick to help it cook evenly.  It is best to cook over coals instead of an open flame.  The flame will just burn your bread so it is best to avoid them. It took me about 8 minutes to cook each roll. But cooking times will vary on the thickness of your dough and the heat of your fire. Top with the icing that comes in the can, and enjoy!camping menu recipe ideas, cinnamon rolls on a stick, pretty amazing, camping hacks, dessert ideas for outdoor cooking

Magical White Chocolate Bark

Cinderella Party Ideas, Princess Bark, Have Courage and be Kind, Recipe DIY ideas for Disney Princess themed Birthday Party Cinderella Magical White Chocolate Bark

Princess themed parties are a common occurrence in our house since we have 3 girls. Not long ago I took my girls to the Disney film Cinderella. They LOVED it, and I did too. My 7 year old has already informed me that she would like a Cinderella princess themed party for her 8th birthday party. SO it is time to start gathering ideas (easy ideas are my favorite lol) so I will be ready for her birthday in a few months.

For more ideas be sure and follow our Cinderella Party Ideas  board on Pinterest.  You might also like our Frozen Party Ideas post if you have Disney Frozen fans in your house.

cinderella barkSupplies Needed:
• Light Blue Candy Wafers
• Bright Blue Candy Wafers
• Bright White Candy Wafers
Blue Sixlets
Silver Pearlized Sugar Sprinkles

Other Supplies Needed:
Wax Paper
Microwave Safe Cup or Bowl
• Mixing Spoons
A Cookie Sheet

Cinderella Party Ideas, Princess Bark, Have Courage and be Kind, Recipe DIY ideas for Disney Princess themed Birthday Party treat ideasDirections:

1. This step not necessary but makes clean up SO much easier. Line a cookie sheet with wax paper with the wax side facing up.
2. Get 3 bowls to melt your chocolate in, you will want to melt them in different bowls. I guess you could wash the same bowl 3 times… it is up to you.
3. Choose which color will be your “base” and melt that one first in the microwave for 30 seconds, stir and repeat until the chocolate is melted.
4. Pour your melted chocolate onto your wax paper and spread evenly across the wax paper using a spoon to make a nice thick base layer that is even thickness across.
5. Melt your next color using the same method in step number three. BUT instead of spreading it you will now drizzle this color on top of your base color so the base color can still be seen.
6. Repeat step number five using your final color of candy wafers. HURRY on to the next step as you chocolate still needs to be warm in order for the balls and sprinkles to stick.
7. Place your blue sixlets on top of the melted chocolate. If your chocolate hardens, the sixlets will not stick.
8. Sprinkle your silver sugar sprinkles over the top again ensuring they stick to the chocolate.
9. Place the cookie sheet into the refrigerator for 1-2 hours until the chocolate has completely hardened.
10. Once it is cool, take the edge and snap a piece off.  OR you can use the backend of a spoon to break the chocolate bark into smaller pieces.

Baked Zucchinni Sticks recipe Last month I posted a recipe for Fried Zucchini, it was well received but a few o you wanted a baked recipe instead.   The recipe varies a bit… the main difference is how I cut the zucchini and how it is cooked.

For the recipe you will need

  • 2-4 small zucchini
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • Progresso bread crumbs
  • Salt and Pepper
  • Garlic powder
  • 2 tablespoons olive olive (to grease the pan)
Wash the zucchini and cut into quarters. I normally get about 8 spears from each zucchini.  Put in a bowl and season with salt, pepper and a light sprinkle of garlic powder.  Pour the egg and milk mixture over the top till well coated.

Then take the zucchini spears from the egg wash and roll them in Progresso Italian Seasoned bread crumbs.

Place them on a greased baking sheet.  Bake them at 425 degrees for 25-35 minutes till tender.

 Baking time will vary on oven, and size of the spears.  Enjoy!
