“This recipe is delicious. It has become one of my regular go-to meals for both my famiy amd when we have company. Yes it has a distinct lime flavor. . After all, it is called “Chipotle-Lime Shrimp Bake,” so no surprise there. But if the lime is too much for your taste you can just add more butter and use less lime juice. Also, I never have broccolini so I use whatever vegetables I have on hand (bell peppers, broccoli, squash) and it’s still great. Thank you for this easy yet tasty meal!” Michele, Taste of Home recipe review

Bizarre ingredients, high oven temps, food processors—in what way are there these recipes adapted for camping?

Hi, can you tell me why these recipes need to be adapted? Why is an RV oven different from a standard oven? Thank you.
