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 […]

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!

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.

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 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 Week – Chicken Tamale Pie

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 […]
