A budget for any vacation/holiday is a personal topic. It’s scary to allow others to see how we chose to spend our money. We risk judgment and ridicule. However, the benefits of sharing go back to the theme of all my blogs which is to share all parts of our Camino experiences despite what others […]

In the midst of the COVID virus pandemic, we purchased a 21-pound turkey for two and it’s a good thing we love turkey leftovers!

All Blogs, RV'ing

Making modifications to our CC (the name of our travel trailer is Casa del Camino or CC) can take away from the adventure, relaxation, and wine time of RV living, however, the payoff is huge.

Recipe of the Week – Polenta Lasagna

By on January 28, 2019

When living a gluten-free lifestyle, whether by choice or necessity, there are many foods that you assume you may never be able to eat again. While restaurants have become more knowledgeable about gluten-free options over the last five years, it is still common to be offered a salad or a burger with no bun as […]

Recipe of the Week – Cruiser’s Platter (Gluten-Free Fried Fish and Shrimp)

By on January 21, 2019

One of our goals in the coming year as we travel is to find local specialties and convert them into both gluten-free and when possible, healthier meals. While on the Gulf Coast over Christmas, we got to eat quite a bit of seafood and it was delicious. Almost every restaurant we went to offered a […]

Recipe of the Week – Grilled Sausages with Potatoes, Shallot, and Spinach

By on January 14, 2019

Sometimes after a big day out exploring we just don’t feel like spending a lot of time cooking. That was the case after our day exploring Cape Coral. After visiting the fantastic Cape Coral Farmer’s Market, we did an eight-mile walk around town and found a great little Italian place for lunch that served gluten-free […]

No blog today… but we have cocktails!​

We have been so busy exploring Pine Island, Cape Coral, and Fort Meyers that there is no blog post for this week. but we have been working hard to find the best cocktail with a view!

Recipe of the Week – Hot Beef Dip Appetizer

By on December 31, 2018

When we're home for New Year's Eve, which isn't often, we love to serve a buffet of appetizers. Gluten-free crab rangoon, chicken wings, a good charcuterie board like this one from Self Proclaimed Foodie, and shrimp coctail will make any occasion a special event. One of our favorites is an old microwave classic, hot beef dip. The quantities below are a doubled version of the recipe so there is plenty for a crowd. The recipe at the bottom is the regular version.

Recipe of the Week – Creamy Cheese Soup

By on November 12, 2018

We love soup and we also try to eat healthy meals as often as possible.  Any opportunity to lighten up a favorite meal and still feel like we’re having a “cheat” meal is appreciated. This potato soup is bulked up with some flavorful vegetables and lightened up by using mostly broth instead of cream. Use […]

Recipe of the Week – Chicken Tamale Pie

By on November 5, 2018

We love flavors inspired by Mexican food and while this tamale pie is far from an authentic dish, it is quick and easy, perfect for RV cooking on a day you need to cook inside and don’t mind firing up the oven. Start by preparing the cornbread base: mix half of a gluten-free cornbread mix […]
