Omelette In A Bag


We make these almost every weekend… whether we’re camping or at home.  It is a fantastic way to make custom omelettes for everyone AND get them all cooked to perfection at the same time!  You literally just set up a buffet of ingredients, write everyone’s name on a baggie, and let them build their omelette in their bag.  Then you just squish the ingredients together to mix them up, and toss in boiling water.  They will moist, fluffy, and delicious in no time!

Walking Tacos


When it comes to kids and camping – there are 3 main ingredients to a best-recipe-ever… it has to be easy to make, easy to run around with, and make as little of a mess as possible.

This recipe hits the mark on all 3.  They just choose their favorite chips (like Fritos or Doritos), add their favorite taco toppings, and shake!  The chip bag makes it easy to carry around with them, and keeps the mess down for you.
