The Fruited Skillet Scones were really good. I am adding it to the recipes that I make at home! I used dehydrated cherries and craisins and it was delicious. Prep at home was easy and cooking on the camp stove was easy. I would use a lower heat that medium high, though - the scones tended to overcook on the outside and undercook on the inside.

I made the Cashew-Ginger Chicken & Rice this past weekend on a car camping trip. It was a hit. One change I made was I used some dry Asian spices in a bottle that I had instead of the Thai seasoning from the soup because I didn't want to use so much sodium. However, the finished product needed . . . salt! I hadn't brought salt & pepper. I am happy with using my at-home seasonings instead of using the packet, but next time I will bring salt so it can be added to taste. I would make this again - it was easy to prepare and tasty.
