Quick breads come by their name honestly. In fact, this one requires only about 5 minutes mix together -- then you can sit back and relax as the fragrance of freshly baked goodness permeates your home. Wonderful for breakfast, toasted and served with a bit of cream cheese and apple or pumpkin butter, this sweet and hearty loaf also makes a fine accompaniment to a bowl of hot soup.

This is a real workhorse of a recipe: a cheap, virtually instant supper that is yummy and nutritious. I have always felt profoundly nourished by an honest plate of beans and rice, but you may want to make the beans and scoop them up with warmed tortillas or wrap them up with cheese into plump little burritos. Of course, if you need to make these beans this minute and have no smoked anything in the house, you can add cumin or regular paprika or both, and they will still be very good.
There are also lots of instant-ish one-pot dinners you can make over a camp stove, if you can't wrangle a fire into flames in the rain. But here I'm going to try to offer you recipes here that might be useful even if you're not camping -- recipes that could be made at home during normal life, where every trip to bathroom is not an adventure in entomology and arachnophobia. Yay. Even if you are not camping (in the pouring rain), try cooking fish this way on your charcoal or gas grill: the fish absorbs some of the smoky flavor while remaining deliciously moist and tender. Also, try it with these easy Squash Packets – a perfect accompaniment.
This nearly-instant recipe for Carrot Salad is infinitely adaptable: you can substitute lemon juice or vinegar for the lime juice, sugar for the honey, and tamari for the fish sauce, you can omit the peanuts, you can use your favorite green herb (honestly, in the winter I often use celery leaves from the inside of the bunch, because that's what we have), and you can even add a splash of olive oil if the salad tastes too pickle-y to you, though I like the clean flavor of the oil-free version.
