Despite my love for baking and planning food related events, I never cared much for the excessive amount of “good-housekeeping” inventions on the market. This was until recently, when I found out about a new kind of tote-bag, in shape of a casserole carrier. As I have lived and learned, bringing over a hot lasagna to a potluck or packing pie-squares for a picnic can be a tricky task, easily leading to unwanted food-disasters. This is where Vonny’s casserole carrier comes in handy: Made out of laminated canvas for easy care-taking, this bright tote-bag is tailored to fit a casserole dish of 9 x 13 inches or smaller. The sturdy hand-straps ensures good grip, and keeps the carrier in a stable horizontal position during transportation. To keep things organized, the exterior zipper-pocket can to store your serving utensils or napkins. The carrier comes in four personal design patterns, of which my favorite is the colorful “jazz fest.”
