When we think of astronaut food, our minds typically rocket to all things freeze-dried. Think ice cream, bananas, and chicken nuggets (so weird, so crazy, but so cool!). While those things are probably delicious and quite the experience to eat, nothing beats the hearty, protein-heavy Astronaut's Breakfast they enjoy on earth before lifting off. Imagine a plate exploding with fluffy, perfectly seasoned scrambled eggs, tender, juicy slabs of New York strip steak, and your favorite roasted potatoes. Your tastebuds will deem its deliciousness out of this world!

5. Just-Trust-Me Bake

Just Trust Me Bake

Back in the day, our granny used to feed us things that, to be honest, we thought sounded really weird. She would put our filled plates in front of us, our noses would start to wrinkle, and she'd say, "Just trust me." That happened numerous times over our younger years, and usually, what she made us we ended up loving. So, as we got older, we decided to name our favorite dish of hers the Just-Trust-Me Bake, just to be silly. With one bite, you'll understand our eternal affinity for this creamy, cheesy chicken bake. It has the perfect amount of salty crunch, and it'll make your kitchen smell pretty lovely, too. Make granny proud and help us honor her with her forever famous and delicious Just-Trust-Me Bake!

9. Camp Bread

Camp Bread 01

Dear mom and dad, we miss you but don't worry about us too much. We're having a blast so far at summer camp. Our roommates are nice (they smell a little funny, though) and at night they teach us new card games, which has been fun. The counselors really have our days jammed packed with cool things to do. We always start our mornings off with a hike around the lake and end our days singing by the campfire and making s'mores. Yesterday's afternoon activity was learning how to make the traditional Camp Bread. Apparently, they've been making it since the camp opened 30 years ago (that's so old!). It was really good! It was really fluffy and sort of tasted like that yummy, buttery cornbread mom makes, but with a little more seasoning and spices. Since it's a camp tradition, they gave us the recipe, so we thought we'd share it with you, too (see it below!). Anyway, we can't wait to be home. Maybe we can even share a piece of Camp Bread as we tell you all about the memories we've made this week. Sounds like fun to us. Love you and see you soon!
