Contrary to popular belief (or at least our childhood experiences), you are not relegated to only hot dogs and baked beans when camping! Campfire Cookery: Adventuresome Recipes and Other Curiosities for the Great Outdoors ($20) is full of recipes for mouthwatering delights that you can pull off over an open flame. Perhaps most importantly, there's also a chapter for those of us unsure on how to even start a good campfire in the first place.
If you like your hot dogs and baked beans just fine, here's a special tip from us to jazz up an old standby. Make your s'mores with a peanut butter cup instead of a piece of chocolate. You won't regret it.
