“Go paddleboarding” has been on my list of goals for 3 years now. Every time I’d plan to go, something would happen that would stop me. Once I was very sick, another time they were shooting a commercial and closed our lake, and then there was a huge 3 day storm while we were in […]
One of our favorite portions of our trip to Canada was backpacking to Yoho Lake in Yoho National Park. We were surprised to find out we’d shown up on Canada’s busiest holiday weekend to what appeared to be the only place that everyone in Canada vacations during that time. Luckily, our “no plan plan” paid […]
Ever since I moved away from my best friend in Florida to go west, we’ve talked about meeting up in a cool place halfway between us for an adventure.
I recently purchased a dehydrator, and have been getting more daring in my recipes. Most people I’ve spoken to mainly use their dehydrators for camping recipes like jerky and dried fruits and vegetables.
It’s been a hiking kinda summer. In the last year or so, a hiking group has naturally formed which we’ve named Trailchuggers. It’s a silly name but it’s something to hang on to and it motivates us to coordinate 5 different schedules so we can get outside and have an adventure together.

Our friend Adan (otherwise known as “Tallkan,” if you want to follow his adventures on Instagram) is on his yearly traditional trip to June Lake right now. We’re jealous.
We’re going to Banff in a few weeks, and I’m starting to get really excited about the possibility of seeing grizzlies, moose, caribou, wolves, and the insane wilderness of the Canadian Rockies! My excitement is reminding me that I’m in charge of the food for 4 people, and I better get prepping.
I am not the master baker of this group. We all know that title belongs to Aimee. But I’ve been backpacking a lot lately, and baked goods seem to be the best thing to eat on the first morning of the trip. So not only have I been baking, but I’ve been vegan baking! I’ve […]
As part of our Dirty Gourmet adventures, we have the chance to connect with like-minded people who push us and inspire us in our craft. At the end of May we had the pleasure of being part of Aspire2Be fundraising effort as a sponsor. Aspire2Be is a non-profit organization dedicated to empowering young women through […]
