We’ve done a ton of grill cooking since we started our traveling adventure. I love cooking on the grill. There are less dishes, the food has fabulous taste to it, and best of all, the husband takes over!
It is the best of all worlds, right?
For some of us, campfire and grill cooking can be intimidating. So let’s look at some easy recipes that make cooking fun and a few of the tips that we have learned along the way. We are still new to this, and learn things the hard way. But there is adventure to be had!
