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 […]

December 20th, 2020
All Blogs, Recipes

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! Now don’t get me wrong, I can only eat Thanksgiving (or Christmas) dinner with all of the trimmings twice at most but take that holiday turkey and divide it into dinner-sized […]

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. The more we have modified CC, personalized her, the more we love her. I remember wanting to sell, upgrade, and […]

By on June 12, 2019

Today we are sleeping in as we prepare to begin walking our Camino, leaving from Leon, Spain, tomorrow morning. I don’t know what we will find to eat today in Leon, but if we can’t find anything inspiring we know of a fine little Mexican restaurant called King Kong near the Cathedral. On our 2017 […]

Recipe of the Month – Cajun Chicken Pie

By on March 6, 2019

We've been seeing a lot about Mardi Gras in the last week and it really gave me a taste for some New Orleans inspired food. We were already planning to make a chicken pot pie this week, so I figured that with a few tweaks it would really warm up the cold weather we've been having and take us back to the Big Easy.

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 […]

Recipe of the Week – Creamy Chicken Soup

As the weather cools, we love to start making heartier meals and one of my favorite things to cook are creamy, thick soups. Krissy at SelfProclainedFoodie.com has created a wonderful rich and creamy soup with lots of flavor and wonderful texture. I’ve made a few adjustments to her recipe as I’ve given it here, but you […]

Recipe of the Week – Easy Chicken and Potato "Kabobs"

By on July 23, 2018

I love to cook, that is not a surprise to anyone who knows me (Brian).  I don’t love to spend a lot of time cooking usually (though I do believe that making a wonderful, intricate recipe can also be very cathartic in the right time and place).  This recipe from the Baking Beauties at Faithfully […]
