Pumpkin Seeds

Pumpkin seeds are a healthy, easy-to-make snack. They’re a great way to make optimal use of the whole pumpkin or other winter squash.  They’re packed with zinc, which will help you ward off those winter colds. Stuffed squash and pumpkin seeds are both easy to make in the rv oven. I do my pumpkin seeds on the stove […]... Read More

Baking in the RV – Let’s Make Cookies!

One of the biggest drawbacks to baking in the rv is lack of counter space. There are several workarounds for this. Most rvs have flat covers for the range and the sink. If you’re using the oven, you’re not going to want to cover the range. I also tend to need the sink when I’m […]... Read More

Baking in the RV – Safety Check

Even though it’s just the beginning of September, where we are presently, in Colorado, nights are getting down into the low 40’s. Nothing takes the chill off the house, or the rv, like baking a fresh batch of chocolate chip cookies, or whole grain bread. If you don’t use your rv very much, you may […]... Read More

Keepin’ up with Fresh Foods

In my commitment to eating as many fresh veggies as possible, I have run into a snag. That is that many times I do not eat up the veggies before they begin to spoil. I have a compost bucket, but these veggies still cost money. Money that is very tight right now. So I want […]... Read More

They are actually consignment auctions, open to the entire community, like one big garage sale. You can bring your stuff and they will auction it off for a commission. A professional […]... Read More

Salad For Breakfast

The first time I had salad for breakfast it seemed incredibly strange. Breakfast is supposed to be cereal and milk; pancakes and sausage; eggs and potatoes, right? Now I crave it. I have found that leafy greens give me energy like nothing else. I can literally feel my liver cleansing itself. My daily carrot juice makes […]... Read More

Fermented Foods

Life in a 14 foot trailer can get very interesting. Especially when you’re trying to eat fresh, whole foods and your refrigerator will hold about enough for one day. Our fridge is about the size of a large cooler. Just try getting a gallon of raw milk, a half gallon of carrot juice, a quart of […]... Read More

Cookie Therapy

One of the drawbacks of living out in the boonies – our internet service has been pretty spotty since before Thanksgiving.  I’m pretty tolerant.  It’s taken me this long to finally get fed up.  After yelling at my computer screen, then hanging up on the computerized “tech support” several times, I finally turned to cookie […]...
