Campfire Treats

Doing any camping this summer? If so, you might be looking for some tasty treats that go beyond the basic s’mores. Kick it up a notch with some of these campfire baked snacks.

1. Bake muffins in an orange! What a great camping hack.

2. I love these elevated s’mores. Belgian cookie crackers, giant marshmallows, chocolate, and strawberry sauce.

3. Skillet brownies . (yours don’t need to be so healthy. Unless you want them to be.)

4. Baked apples, rolled in cinnamon and sugar.

Beautiful Cupcakes and More

When we were in Australia over the Christmas holidays, we were lucky enough to take a side trip to Newcastle and visit this perfect little shop that recently opened.

After reading Naomi’s blog for years, drooling over her beautiful cakes and cookies, it was such a treat to try her goodies. And believe me— they were as good as they are cute!

And we got to meet Naomi herself! It was a bit like meeting a celebrity– I’m sure my face was bright red. But she couldn’t have been nicer. It may have been one of the highlights of my trip!

If you are nearby, you must visit Naomi and her bakery. I read her menu to my husband daily (it changes regularly) and even he has pondered when we are going back– or if we should move closer. :) And if these cupcakes aren’t enough, the town of Newcastle is full of wonderful delights, definitely making it a must- destination.

If you go, tell Naomi I say “hi!”
