Campfire Cooking

Campfire Cooking

There’s nothing better than escaping for a weekend, especially during the colder months when there’s not much to do. Getaway House has thought of it all – a cozy bed with stunning views, a grand selection of books, a small kitchen to assist you with all your cooking needs, a box to put your phone away in, and the sweetest outdoor campfire area.

One of my favorite parts about camping is campfire cooking! There is nothing I love more than feeding the ones I love and the process of getting creative out in the woods is always exciting too. While on our getaway I made two brand new campfire recipes made with minimal + real ingredients. Both are easy make and requires little to no effort so you can sit and enjoy the great outdoors. Here’s the details:


Campfire Pizza

BEST. PIZZA. EVER. My favorite part about this pizza is how perfectly crispy the bottom gets (thank you cast iron skillet) while the crust stays fluffy. I put together my favorite ingredients and they did not disappoint! I couldn’t recommend this pizza enough, the perfect salty/sweet combo.

  • Enjoy!

Cast Iron Skillet Banana Bread

Who doesn’t like banana bread? Probably one of my favorite things to eat + I love how incredibly versatile it is. You can add in chocolate, nuts or dried fruit – not to mention it can easily be made vegan or gluten free with a few simple swaps! A golden crispy base with a okey-gooey center = the best breakfast around a campfire. A must try!

My Favorite Part?

My favorite part of the Getaway House was the selection of books they left for us. I read through all of them in the morning while sipping on my coffee. My husbands favorite part was the game box – we played cards and listened to music all night after coming in from the fire. The perfect night.

What Else do they Provide?

I think a more appropriate question would be: what don’t they provide? They think of everything – dog bowls, cutlery, shower products, food, coffee, and even a s’mores kit!
