October 4th, 2022
All Blogs, Camino de Santiago, Tips and Travel Adventures, Via Francigena

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 […]

The 21 Pound Turkey... How to Handle Dreaded Holiday Leftovers!

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 […]

RV Slideout Upgrade

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 […]

Recipe of the Month – Basque Chicken with Roasted Potatoes

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 – Taco Pizza (with gluten-free option)

By on May 12, 2019

We love pizza! I will put almost anything on a pizza: BBQ chicken, ham and pineapple, caramelized apples and oatmeal, or seafood. But one of our favorite pizza toppings is taco and if you’ve never had a taco pizza you are missing out. Other than the crust, there is nothing in this recipe that would […]

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 Month – Mexican Chicken Soup

By on February 4, 2019

Yep, you read that correctly, the recipe of the week is becoming the recipe of the month so that we can focus on bringing you more content in other areas, such as Camino planning and recaps of some of our best previous adventures. With all of the cold weather we have been having lately, I’ve […]

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 […]

Recipe of the Week – Potato Fennel Hash

By on November 19, 2018

While we were in Michigan this summer we took a fishing charter on Lake Superior and came home with a mess of fish. You’ll hear about our fishing adventure on Wednesday’s post but today you will see the fruits of our labor. We love to serve fish with Potato Fennel Hash but it actually goes […]

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 […]
