Cooking Products Go In and Out

A lot of cooking materials and products go in and out of style.  We were all obsessed with cast iron skillets for a while, now the healthy crowd is all about-spiralizers.  Despite these fun fads, some cooking methods will just never go away.

Tin Foil Dinner

One of those is tin foil dinners.  I absolutely love a good tin foil dinner recipe.  They can be incredibly easy, and they always taste so, so good.  Plus, it always feels a bit like you’re camping when you eat them.  I actually had a friend once who hated doing dishes so much that he exclusively made tin foil dinners just to eat out of the foil packets, skipping plates entirely.  That is not why I love tin foil dinners, but I do adore them.  They’re just so easy and tasty.
