Book Review: 150 Best Recipes for Cooking in Foil: Ovens, BBQ, Camping by Marilyn Haugen

When I (David) was a young boy, I was a boy scout and a girl scout.  You see, my mother was the troop leader and I went to all the meetings.  I was about the same age as most of the girls, so I got to participate in the meetings.

The boy scouts taught some about outdoor cooking and outdoor living, but the girls learned much more.  They learned how to make life outside a lot like it was indoors.

One thing they taught was cooking in the coals of a campfire using foil.  Well, 150 Best Recipes for Cooking in Foil: Ovens, BBQ, Camping by Marilyn Haugen would be an excellent resource for those who want to make camping a lot more fun and a lot less like eating a brontosaurus burger cooked until it is burnt.

Once, we boy scouts had to cook on the fire for ourselves and our fathers. The fathers could not help.  I made what we called Steak in Aluminum Foil. While the others were eating those burnt brontosaurus burgers and severely overdone hot dogs, Dad and I were chowing down on a delicious steak, potatoes, onions, and carrots. I can only imagine what I could have done had I had this outstanding resource.  Even the eleven year old boy that I was could have made great food by following this book.

I have to give 150 Best Recipes for Cooking in Foil all five stars.  It is very well-written and has many outstanding recipes.
