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 […]

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

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: Easy Short Ribs with Mushroom Risotto

By on June 19, 2020

When most people think about camping, they dream about roasting hotdogs and making s’mores over the campfire. When we go on our extended trips, that would get old really fast! We only eat hotdogs two or three times during our entire summer trip. Since I love to cook, I’m always trying to get creative without […]

By on October 9, 2019

UPDATE: Check out our new how-to video to make Tarta de la Abuela Borracho here: https://youtu.be/gbQQPMR_Nf4 While walking across Spain and Portugal during the summers of 2017 and 2019, we were offered Tarta de la Abuela many times. It was always the same basic recipe, but with small variations such as vanilla, caramel, or even […]

Tarta de Santiago - slice

Recipe of the Month – Tarta de Santiago

By on July 3, 2019

While walking along the Camino de Santiago, there is always plenty of food to choose from, but one of my favorite things is to ask for “especialidad de la casa” or specialty of the house. Whether it is garlic soup, barnacles, home-made cheese, tuna ragu, or octopus, they were always fresh, usually delicious, and definitely […]

Recipe of the Month – Basque Chicken with Roasted Potatoes

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 […]
