Disclosure: ItsJustMyLifeCA received products for this review. All opinions, however, are honest and my own.

You do not have to be a  camper to enjoy the convenience of foil meals. The recipes are creative and simple to do taking very little prep time. There are breakfast, dinner and dessert recipes for you to enjoy.

Foil meals are very quick and easy to prepare and even easier to clean up. The recipes in the book are designed to serve 4 people but you can easily double them. 

I can not wait to go tailgating in the fall and enjoy these foil meals with all our friends. For now I will enjoy them on our BBQ for quick meals.
