We just came back from camping. One (AllClad) skillet did a lot, wine opener and glasses, insulated stainless mugs, press pot for coffee, pretty minimal actually. I made a tomato basil goat cheese tart the first night, and a zucchini, tomato and basil fritata the second night. All pretty easy and excellent. Cowgirl Creamery was just down the road, so we awesome cheese too.

a tip for easy cleaning of the grill...I read this somewhere and it works... close a wet paper towel in the still warm grill after you've finished cooking, turned off of coarse, and go eat... the towel steams and loosens the stuck on stuff... also, I spray them with oil just before putting the food on... and if you turn the steak over in the other direction during cooking you get nice hashmarks!!! hahaha..ok, keep having fun!!! gail... Globie...any chance that fritata or tart could be at the potluck in JRRV??? sounds yummy!!!!

We read that tip also and are using it at home on g forman and cuisenart panini press. Works great. I wad my paper towel slightly not laying it real flat and put it on while its still plugged in.WATCHING IT CLOSELY OF COURSE. Just those few minutes loosen enough tio wipe the rest off with the warm (careful its hot) towel.

We love our soda stream carbonater. We splurged and got the gray and silver Penguin model from William-Sonoma (only place to get this model) so it would match the AS interior and also because it is the only model with glass bottles rather than plastic. No more cans to return and a big variety of beverages (Walmart, Bed Bath and Beyond etc. for supplies). Bubbly water like Perrier, tonic water (diet or reg), coke etc.
Also love our Bodum double wall thermal French press for coffee.

Other than the usual pancake turner, forks, slotted spoon etc. we cary a set of stainless steel flat ware and Coffee mugs. But we use paper plates and bowls.

We use the propane fired stove and oven in the trailer and NEVER fry anything to keep the cooking odors down. I burn a candle sometimes to help with that. We gave up taking a propane fired camp stove long ago as too much trouble, and almost never have camp fires because we are camping in areas where the fire danger is usually extremely high.

That's like forty things. I thought we were going for five!

Yes, we need 40 top favorites, not 5. It's best not to eat that kind of beef the guy in the video is cooking on the G Foreman grill. If you ever worked around cattle ranching, you would never buy another piece of beef from a supermarket!

Sorry about that, could not make it just 5.

So now I guess I will give you my first rule when choosing "stuff" to take

No Electricity required!

After reading all these posts, and the last one with no electric, had to add if you want easy outdoor cooking it has to be gas or electric, over the open flame not happening in a lot of places.
Pack a heavy duty electric cord, you can plug into the AS system or plug directly into the pedestal, g forman and electric skillets usually have very short cords for safety reasons, for all the mentioned reasons for not cooking inside, camping doesn't have to be hotdog on a stick over the campfire, electric cooking does work outside when its dry.

I have become increasingly fond of all things silicone in our small, galley kitchen.

I have a set of relatively deep, silicone mixing bowls in a lovely red which serve for mixing, serving, storing and reheating foods. Their "squishable" factor is critical in the limited space of cabinets and fridge.

I have also picked up a few small silicone bowls and a number of sturdy silicone spatulas, which mix as well as cook.

Lovely colors, no staining.....what's not to love?


🏡 🚐 Cherish and appreciate those you love. This moment could be your last.🌹🐚❤️
