Catfish is one of my favorite fish to eat. Being from Louisiana we had catfish quite a bit. I have been following Jeffrey Weeks' Blog, A Taste Of Salty, for a while. He is always sharing some of the best sounding recipes that I have ever heard. He posted an article with catfish recipes the other day, and I just had to share it. The recipes sound fairly simple and very tasty. You should check out the article, and any others that may interest you.

Spring Flounder Recipes

Flounder begin biting in the spring and are a popular fish for anglers due to their value on the table. Flounder are a white, mild fish that fits into many quick and easy recipes.

In the northern part of their range on the Atlantic Coast, summer flounder are often known as fluke. Summer flounder range down to the Carolinas, while their cousins the southern flounder can be found in inshore waters from the Carolinas through the Gulf Coast.

Flounder lie on the bottom of the ocean floor and are often caught by drifting or casting live bait. As a food fish flounder are delicate and shouldn't be overcooked. Some folks prefer them to any other fish.

Spring Bluefish Recipes

Bluefish begin to show up on the piers and shores of the Carolinas in March. They are an aggressive and feisty fish who love to hit bloody cut bait or flashy artificial lures.

Bluefish of all sizes can be caught by fishermen on Gotcha-style pencil plugs with red headed models being the most popular, as well as cut bait fished on the bottom or live baitfish. Bluefish have a somewhat poor reputation in the south as table fare because folks try to fry them up in oil. Cooked properly, however, they are a very good tasting fish with a nice distinctive flavor.

Freezing Herbs

Fresh herbs make meals taste so much better, but some can ruin rather quickly. Freezing your herbs can allow you to purchase them in the bundles that the stores sell them, and keep them fresh until you need them. I use this method regularly, and it works great.

A Few Camping Recipes

Camping is a great way to spend time with your family, while saving a lot of money. Camping costs a fraction of the price that hotels would cost. Cooking while camping can be something that is challenging. I recommend you having a Coleman stove, they help you prepare great meals for your family while camping. You should also have a pot, pan, and utensils.

I wanted to share a few recipes that you can easily prepare for your family while camping. These are some pretty simple recipes, and your family will love it.

Make A Tasty Beef Stew

-This recipe is showing how to make the stew at home, but it is also easy to make while camping.

Make A Campfire Breakfast

Make Baked Vegetables with Olive Oil
-Instead of baking this recipe in the oven. Put all of the ingredients in foil, and place on the fire. You will have a healthy dish to serve while you are camping.

Make Sausage and Sweet and Sour Sauce
-This recipe calls for a pit, but if there is not one available there is another option. Wrap all of the ingredients in foil, and place in the fire.

These are just a few recipes that I feel would work well when camping. Think creatively when preparing meals while camping. You can make many different meal options if you think in an original way.
