Make-Ahead Meals for RV Vacations

RV travelers are gearing up for their spring trips, and many have been asking for make-ahead meals for RV vacations. We love cooking over the campfire and on the grill, but it’s also a great idea to bring along some ready-made meals. Listeners were giving some great meal suggestions over on our RVFTA Facebook group, and it inspired me to share three of my easy-peasy favorites.

In this series of blog posts, I am sharing my family recipes for enjoying Thanksgiving dinner at the campground. There are so many ways to bring festive holiday cheer on the road, and this year I am focusing on dishes that offer those classic Thanksgiving flavors, but can be made mostly in advance and with minimal fuss.

Thanksgiving at the Campground: Pumpkin Bread Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting

In this series of blog posts, I’m sharing my personal recipes for simple menu items that can be made ahead of a holiday RV trip, but still hit all of the classic holiday tastes that we crave in a Thanksgiving meal. Pumpkin Bread Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting I first started making these cupcakes when we would visit my grandmother on the Friday after Thanksgiving. Everyone already had their fair share of pie on Thursday, so I wanted to bring something festive but different. So I turned my mother’s classic pumpkin bread into a... Read More

Recipe of the Week: Julie’s Michigan Sauce

We are huge fans of Jane and Michael Stern’s Roadfood book, a wonderful collection of American roadside restaurant recommendations. No matter where we are traveling, we always consult the book before we leave to see if there are any gems in the region to which we are heading. Before we took off for Lake Placid last month, we cracked open Roadfood and found that every Adirondack entry referenced the “Michigans” on the menu. A Michigan? What’s a Michigan? So glad you asked. First things first. A Michigan is not from... Read More

What’s for Breakfast? 3 Easy RV Alternatives to Pancakes

What’s for Breakfast? 3 Easy RV Alternatives to Pancakes

Last week on Episode 3 of the RV Family Travel Atlas, we talked about how our mornings at the campground have changed over the years. We used to feel like authentic camping days had to begin with eggs, bacon, and pancakes. But we soon realized that we liked to get out and about early, and we didn’t like the weight of a heavy breakfast dragging us down. So we adjusted our habits a bit and started eating things like yogurt, oatmeal, and peanut butter toast. Over time I’ve added some breakfast menu items that have eventually turned... Read More

Campground Shrimp Boil: An Easy Summer Dinner for a Crowd

Campground Shrimp Boil: An Easy Summer Dinner for a Crowd

While planning our trip to Cape Cod, I was lucky to connect with a dear friend from childhood. When Simone found out where we would be staying in Eastham, she booked a nearby campsite with her family, and they drove out from the Boston area to meet us. I had invited them over to have dinner at our campsite one night, and I realized I needed to pick a meal that was easy to make so I could spend as much time with Simone and her family as possible. I also needed to pick something that could feed a crowd since I would be cooking for 13 people.... Read More
