Featured Book

Lipsmackin' Backpackin': Lightweight Trail-tested Recipes for Backcountry Trips : by Christine Connors

Reviewer: "lyk2hyk" (Twin Falls,, ID USA)
If you love the outdoors but tire of a monotonous diet of granola ,ramen and peanut butter, you will be delighted with this book. I have other books but this one is the best. The Connors supply simple recipes with precise explanations on exactly how to use a dehydrator, how to reconstitute and divide the servings. I chanced (without taste testing first) the chicken curry salad and the creamy cilantro tuna salad on a 5 day backpack trip. Wow, were my friends impressed. I look forward to trying other recipes and further enhancing my reputation as a gourmet backcountry cook. Thank you, Tim and Christine!

The Connors also have a "lipsmakin Backpackin" recipe' book published focused on vegetarian meals:
