Surviving Minnesota

Comfort food is helping us survive Minnesota for sure! I’ve been making a lot of soups and warm meals for us lately. I even made a huge crock pot full of vegetable soup for Allen to take to work and share with the guys earlier this week.img_2478 Continue reading

Tried & True Holiday Recipes

I made all these for our friends and family Thanksgiving dinner… (I planned ahead, big time!) But I’d highly recommend them if you’re making Christmas dinner! They can all be made in a tiny camper kitchen (like ours) also! Enjoy and please let me know what you think if you try them!  Continue reading

Planning a Thanksgiving Dinner in an RV

I cooked Thanksgiving dinner for myself and Allen last year in our camper (in North Dakota) and I plan to do it even better this year! 

We didn’t do too bad! 

The main challenge lies in the planning stage. Continue reading

Slow Cooker Baked ZITI

Now that fall is here and the weather is getting cooler, I’m using my slow cooker a lot more.

The slow cooker is also great when I can use one of those slow cooker disposable liners. Especially when we are traveling and don’t necessarily have time to do lots of dishes (or when we don’t have a full hook up site for the camper!) Not to mention, anything you can make in one pot saves a ton of time and space, and space is ALWAYS at a premium in RVs…

This is a first for me though, making pasta in the crock pot, but it came out great! Continue reading

Teriyaki Pork Tenderloin & Veggie Rice Bowl

What’s not to love about a grilled pork tenderloin? (even if it isn’t wrapped in bacon like this one) The teriyaki sauce adds lots of flavor, and it’s homemade!

Healthy, Homemade, Delicious!

Pickled Jalapeños!

If you like pickled jalapeños, you’ll LOVE this homemade version!

I hit the Big Top Flea Market again Saturday to get some more really cheap and fresh produce. I picked up some more jalapeños and some little red peppers that I think may be cayenne peppers… Continue reading

Big Top Flea Market in Thonotosassa, Florida

Thonotosassa… Try saying that 3 times fast!

Thonotosassa (I love the name) is home to the Big Top Flea Market, aka Rachel’s version of heaven!

They have just about everything you could want and when I found out Allen had a job in Riverview, FL and we would be staying at the Happy Traveler RV Park again, I got super excited! Continue reading
