Buddy Burner Outdoor Cooking

There is nothing like the great outdoors, especially when you are camping.  Here is a clever and easy way to cook outdoors with supplies you probably have lying around the house.


What you need: 
    - 1 large empty clean can, gallon size 
    - 1 empty, cleaned tuna can 
    - cardboard strips, just wider than the height of the tuna can 
    - church key can opener, the ones used for cans of juice (makes triangle openings) 
    - good scissors
    - paraffin wax or unscented candles - melted


Instructions:

    1. With tin snips, cut door in can on open end. 
    2. With church key can opener, punch vent holes along the top of can 
    3. Spiral cardboard strips into tuna can 
    4. Pour melted wax into tuna can



Light the cardboard from the center and wait until the candle has a good fire.




Find a cutie and let them help you cook outdoors. We cooked cheeseburgers. However we have done pancakes with this method as well. 





Mmmmmm Mmmmmmmm.

Oh wow just thinking about one of those big colorful cookie cakes from that "Patriotic Cookie Cake" store gets my mouth watering every single time! But as you know their yummy cakes can cost $35-$40. Now with this recipe you can DO IT YOURSELF.
 
So avoid the mall and make an amazing oh so yummy cooke cake at home!
It is SO easy and only 3 Ingredients.
 
 
DIY 3 Ingredient Cookie Cake (Makes 2 Cakes):
2 tubes of Chocolate Chip cookie dough
1/4 cup of Light Corn Syrup
Cooking Spray
 
2 x 16'' Pizza Pans
 
 
 
 
Prepare both pans with non-stick cooking spray.
Pre-heat oven to 350* F.
 
Measure out Corn Syrup and break up the 2 tubes of cookie dough.
 
 



In a large mixing bowl mix corn syrup and cookie dough throughly.







Divide mix in half or leave whole, for super thick cookie cake, and spread into pizza pans evenly.







Once again this recip can be divided into 2 cakes, or if your pan is deep enough, you can make one thick cookie cake (cooking time may vary).
