I love it Jane! Thanks for sharing your continuation of this fun tradition with Pickle Elf! What an adorable idea.
Hi Amy, I apologize for just reading your comment! Ugh, I wish I could have read this sooner but perhaps you have not left for your fun month-long RV trip to the National Parks (sounds amazing). For ease with camping, for the blueberry muffins, I actually used a Jiffy Blueberry Muffin box! (Gasp, I know, but it was all about the ease of preparation while camping!) They turned out so great! This year I want to try them with a homemade blueberry muffin recipe, which of course I will share! I am always looking for great/easy camping recipes. What are your favorites to have on the road?
Hi Mike -Thanks for commenting. I am a huge fan of pulled pork too! What is your favorite roll or bread to eat pulled pork with? And yes, I do like to treat my Hubs well, as he does the same for me!
Thanks William - I was just like you, trying out various granola bar recipes yet seeking the chewy version closer to the flapjacks from Graze. I hope that you find these to be a closer version than the others you've tried. I love the consistency of these and having the ability to swap out ingredients, similar to the various Graze versions, will be fun to experiment with as well.
You are welcome Tiffany. So happy to have found another flapjack fan! I hope that you like them as much, if not more, than the tasty Graze version.
Yay Nichole! I hope that you enjoyed the recipe and found it to be close to the Graze flapjacks!
Thank you again for sharing your delicious recipe! I appreciate the step-by-step photos too. Now, if I can hunt down the grape leaves.
Hi Anastasia, Yes, by all means use frozen berries! I use frozen berries most of the time for baking as we have such a small window of time that our berries are truly fresh and flavorful (vs. grown in a greenhouse with little flavor). You can substitute strawberries or any other chopped fruit that would hold shape in the baking process. We have loved this recipe for years and it's a true family favorite. I'm so thrilled to have been able to make it slightly more "healthy" by swapping a few ingredients. Ha! Let me know how it turns out!

Thanks so much for sharing this recipe Anastasia! I really want to try this as it sounds incredible. Two questions, does one eat the vine leaves? Also, are these grape vine leaves? I'm not certain where to purchase these in my neck of the woods so I may have to know specifics about what type of leaves they are to let our grocer know, if I place an order.

If you are a fan of salmon, it's a must try recipe. Not only is it simple, but it is well-loved! We just had it for dinner last night and there were hardly any leftovers as everyone enjoyed it so much. I love reading about your traditional Greek foods. I know I would greatly enjoy the foods of your culture.
I love it Anastasia! I am a huge cheesecake fan as are my children but my husband is not a fan, so I don't make it often enough! Growing up, I always requested my mom's cheesecake for my birthday rather than a traditional cake! I also love lemon tart! Do you have a recipe for the Greek stuffed vine leaves? I would love to try that!
I absolutely love these last-minute, on the fly ideas Elsie! Thank you for sharing and grouping these great ideas together, as always you provide thoughtful inspiration for your readers! I have to come up with secret squirrel hide-outs just to keep chocolate chips away from my Hubs but I'm inspired to have a hidden stash for drop-in parties. Maybe a note posted on the chocolate will help. ;)
