Welcome to eplaya!!!
Things I would suggest, especially the first year. But first I must ask, how much camping experience do you have?
I suggest this because your first year the last place you want to be is at camp cooking. Our first year eating/chore was more of a chore than a desire.
So my suggestions are
1) Jet Burner aka Propane Backpack Burner: They are super handy, boil water really fast and pack small. The little propane cans are sold all over the place, safe, and relatively cheap. The first picture is the one we wave, but there are much smaller versions for backpackers, second picture. FYI, the smaller ones tend to cost more, so unless you're using it for backpacking go with the larger one.
2) Tea Kettle: Makes boiling water really easy! It has a lid to keep the dust out, and yells at you when the water is boiling. Also, if you don't use all the water at once, you can leave it in there for a while and it will stay warm. Try to find one that is stainless steel, not copper or other metal. Also, its best to have one with a flap/lid over the spout. More like first picture and less like second picture.
3) Old Pot holder: Take the used one out of your kitchen at home put it in your camping gear, and buy your self a nice new one for your kitchen.
4) Dehydrated Meals!!!!!!!: Mountain House is my favorite. But I would recomend buying a couple and giving them a shot at home one day. I have heard that they upset some peoples stomachs. My favorite flavors are Chicken A la'king, stroganoff, and Mac'n'Cheese. They are really easy to cook: Boil water, poor boiling water in bag, zip shut, let sit 2 min., shake, let sit, eat.
A lot of people will also, recommend Trader Joe's(?) I personally have not tried them, but from what I'm told they are pretty good. If I could find them, I'd try them.
