Sausage Kale Soup

 

 Sausage kale soup has a yummy combination of flavors. I make it in an Instant Pot. If you don’t have one, you can use a large soup pot. The potatoes may take longer to cook. In the weeks leading up to a motorhome trip, I prepare several dishes before we […]

Swedish Meatballs

 

 Jim and I have this silly tradition (I love it, but it does get a bit ridiculous at times). We call it the 12 Hours of Christmas.  It starts out like many traditional Christmas celebrations. First, there’s Christmas Eve services, followed by dinner with the family (several generations when our […]

Lobster Grilled Cheese Sandwich

 

 Lobster! Who doesn’t love lobster? We’ve had three memorable lobster meals in our motorhome in Utah (what?!), Maine, and Colorado. I’ll tell you about all three, and share the recipe for the last one, a lobster grilled cheese sandwich.  When we got our first motorhome in 2002, one of our […]

Roasted Cauliflower

 

 Roasted cauliflower can be made with any olive oil, but I enjoy trying different flavored olive oils. For this recipe, my current favorite is Harissa Olive Oil from Venice Olive Oil. Harissa is a hot chili paste from North Africa.  Harissa Olive Oil is spicy, and pairs well with cauliflower.  […]
