Our family really enjoyed the first book by Tim and Christine
Conners and there is a second book in the Lipsmackin' Backpackin'
series that is completely vegetarian.
The recipes are tested numerous times to ensure that they turn out well on your adventures. The gang here did a little of the testing to help out. We even found that the Green Dragon Pad Thai tastes great once you get past its vibrant color. Trailside instructions are printed with each recipe and again in the back of the book. The packable trailside cooking instructions are perfect for placing in the zipper bag with the food contents.
Although Lipsmackin' Vegetarian Backpackin' is a meatless collection of good eats, it is a book easily enjoyed by all.
I will always remember Christine and Tim sharing treats like the Fabulous Fry Brownies, hot off the pan, while sharing their stories of the backcountry. Their children were an inspiration and I was delighted to see some of the photos of the Conners children in the book. After a moment I realized that these photos were from their Canadian canoe adventure.
