Hi all.  I've been reading everyone's great posts, but never posted myself!  Now I need some advice.

My husband and I are going on a brief camping trip soon and we are NOT experienced campers.  We desperately need some very basic advice about cooking while camping.  We'll be in a national park (car camping, no backpacking!) where we'll have a fire pit.  What sort of equipment do we need?  What sort of foods would be simple for an inexperienced camp chef to make?  What does everyone else like to eat while camping?  Do you have any recommendations for sites or books that address the basics (like we probably need help with everything from building a proper fire to cleaning up afterwards)?

Thank you in advance for your ideas!

If you have a fire pit you can cook just about anything, just like grilling with charcoal.  I would think about getting a camp stove though.  You may not want to build a fire just to heat up water for coffee and oatmeal!  We always take those dried pasta thingies, where you add water and butter, you just use oil instead of butter, and brings some veggies to throw it too.  I know those aren't very exciting ideas, but its tasty after a day of playing in the woods!  (and if you are backpacking or paddling, they aren't very heavy)  If you are car camping though, just bring a cooler with you and pack it full of all of your favorite foods to grill! 
If you have an REI near you, you should definetly go check it out!  The employees there are super helpful!

this is from my celiac board and while you may not be celiac it does address a first time camper and what to bring and its might be helpful. The people on there are wonderful and had TONS of suggestions for I think it was a dad and daughter doing their first camp out.
Good luck.
