Pass the Chimichurri, PLEASE!!

This is one of my top 3 favorite sauces … at least all purpose & most versatile sauces! I can’t stress enough that if you haven’t tried chimichurri, you MUST! And even if you have, make this one because there are as many recipe variations for it as there are people who make it so…

Tuscan Baby Lima Bean Soup

I love beans & I love soup.  One dish that marries the two is rich & creamy ham ‘n beans; it has always been a comfort food for me.  When I make old-fashioned ham ‘n beans I always use the big ham bone usually left after the holiday ham. I often freeze it to use…

My One & Only Banana Bread

Chefs are notoriously known for never making something the same way twice. There’s the  constant search for a new recipe,  or the persistent tweaking to perfect the way to make [________] better, is a “thing” we are very guilty of. I know that I am often thinking of a new way I could make something…

Best of Palmetto / Bradenton Florida

So, as you may know, we hit the road in mid-July 2018, headed east  & had to be in Palmetto, Florida by Sept. 6 for G.R. to attend RVSA. We spent 10 weeks there, so I feel I should write a ‘best of’  since so many RVer’s find themselves in this part of Florida. Also,…

Local Dining in Daytona Beach, Florida

We recently spent 8 days in the Daytona Beach area along the Atlantic Ocean shore in east Florida.  It was breathtaking. During our time there I celebrated my 50th birthday. YEP… half a century! So in my own mind I asked “how do I celebrate when I am already living the dream, traveling the country…

Soy-Lime Grilled Flank Steak

I LOVE grilled steak. Generally speaking we will pick a rib eye (bone-in if they have it) for traditional steak dinner. That said, I choose flank (or skirt)  just as often because it is so diverse & flavorful! This one recipe marinates only about 1-4 hours. You could marinate it over night, but I would…

A 48 Hour Trip OR a 4 & 1/2 Month Journey?

We are just two letters shy of an entire alphabet! Which is better than being  ” a few sandwiches shy of a picnic” I say, if you know what I mean?  According to MapQuest we are currently at stop “X”. I wanted to SEE the progression so I plugged it all into their directions tool…

How to Stock Your Tiny Kitchen & Cook Happily Ever After

I am guessing that more than one of you may have wondered how small IS an RV kitchen & how do I make that work? Did I have to get rid of all my favorite kitchen appliances, tools & gadgets?  Can I store more than  two plates, cups & forks? You will have to go…

Classic Wedge Salad

Do you ever stop to think why ‘the classics’ are classic? I did just that while eating a salad the other day. Whether it’s clothing, music or food, the word ‘classic’ can usually be exchanged for timeless. There are some things that just stand the test of time – like the quintessential little black dress…
