Great Gifts for Egg Travellers

I love to share the great things I find that make Egg travelling more comfortable and efficient.  I particularity love it when these products come from a really nice company. Today’s share is LeeValley.com out of Canada.  I just purchased several items from their Gifts catalog and am very happy with them:   Photo credit: […]

More Kitchen Helpers–Drying Rack

Sorting through what works verses what works better (and always editing for storage and weight) we have gone through two different iterations on dish drying aparatus. The first was a roll out rack that fully expanded to cover the sink.  This worked great for dishes washed outside and brought in to air dry overnight and […]

More Kitchen Helpers–Ice trays

One of these days, I’m going to get around to doing a full inventory of what our essential trip gear is.  Until then, I’ll share things, little by little, that help make our camping fun. Today, lets talk ice and storage.  My favorite ice trays for the Casita are small silicone squares.   They fit the […]

Cooking in an Egg

There seems to be no set rule on how I cook in this little space.   Originally, I thought I wouldn’t use the inside kitchen much — lingering odors, confined spaces, etc.–but experience has changed all that.

I needed to be able to set up poles on both our aluminum 27″ x 27″ folding table and a […]

Manifesting Luck

Elusive and magical. Did you know that in Spring, young clover is edible?  A gift as plentiful as dandelion leaves and […]

The Perfect Tablecloth

Since park tables can vary from 6″ to 10′ it’s tough to find a pre-made cloth. I designed this style and made one each in our Spring/Summer and Fall/Winter colors.  Using Sunbrella, you can just wipe off stains easily.  Any stubborn stain will almost always come off with a little soap and water.  I haven’t […]
