Frozen pizza (and much more) in the woods

Freshly baked food that reminds you of home is always a good thing. Even while camping.

A breakfast of scrambled eggs while camping may be somewhat traditional, but wouldn't a quiche be nice?

Getting back to nature doesn't have to mean getting away from it all.

You know how it is. When camping with family and/or friends, everybody finds themselves enjoying getting back to nature. It's not hard to do: the rustle of the wind through the trees, a nearby babbling brook, stars you can actually see. Then it hits. The need for a frozen pizza.

Modern convenience is never far away when camping with the Coleman Signature Outdoor Gear Portable Propane Stove/Oven. Capable of producing full meals just like the big oven back home, the propane-powered (it uses disposable cylinders and is adaptable to use refillable tanks) appliance combines convenience and versatility wherever you happen to be.

Franks and beans have always been a camping classic cuisine, but with a stove at the ready anything is possible. Two burners on top provide the means for cooking a variety of items, whether they need be boiled, fried, or anything in between. The oven cavity holds a 9-inch by 13-inch baking sheet and comes complete with a see-through door as well as an integrated thermometer. From casseroles to chocolate-chip cookies, the great outdoors can now be home to some of the things that make indoors great. Now the only question that remains is how to keep frozen pizza actually frozen throughout the weekend.
