    I found Aaron after searching for meal plans for my upcoming JMT through hike. After reviewing her credentials and acknowledging they were top of the line, I waited for her cookbook to be published and I probably bought it in the first few days it was published. I made pesto ramen noodles on my next trip (which I loved) and I am planning to try many more recipes between now and my JMT trip. I think this is the first cookbook I buy that I know I will be getting 100% of the value. The recipes are easy to make and the cookbook provides stats about the meals that are well needed for a long hike. I cannot say enough good things about it. I truly recommend it and I cant wait to buy her next one.

    I read this entire book in one night. The recipes are fantastic. They are delicious and just what a backpacker needs to keep up with their special nutritional requirements. I LOVE that recipes come with sheets of labels for your food storage. Writing up labels is one of my least favorite tasks.

    I am preparing for a 4 day hike in the Sierras and have tried several of Aaron’s recipes and they are very easy to make and delicious. Using 1 packet of True Lemon Powder in the Trail Tabbouleh was too much for me so I backed it down to 1/2 packet. I did a cold soak of the Beans and Cheese Fritos for a lunch on a hike and it worked out great. I really like the Double Chocolate Coconut Pudding. I highly recommend this book!!
