I have been using my UP MOVE tracker for almost a month now and I wanted to give y’all a little update on what I have liked and how it has worked for me. I have been logging more and more steps, but it has been challenging since we are currently living in our RV […]
So there are great and not so great aspects of cooking in an Airstream kitchen or cooking in any camper for that matter.
My favorite part is that I get to cook with a gas stovetop rather than the electric that I use at home. It has taken a little getting used to and adjusting but over all it is a lot more accurate and I am loving it!
The tough part is that the Airstream is so small, there are counter top and storage space challenges. I have one countertop space that is 2 feet wide by 2 and a half feet deep. That is it! If I am not cooking on the stove I can add a cutting board to the top of the stove to add a little space but it still isn’t much. I have 3 small drawers and one cabinet for kitchen items so space saving gadgets and appliances are a must!
Back at the beginning of the year I wrote this post about what I wanted to accomplish in 2015. You can check the article out if you want, but the main point was that I wanted specific goals so that I wouldn’t look back this December and ask, “what did I DO with this year?” […]
Last week I shared a recipe for simple syrup that you can add to drinks, cocktails and use in other recipes. This week we are going to step our game up a few notches and make a simple syrup that is infused with basil. I was visiting my sister Alli and her family a few […]
Simple syrup is a common cocktail ingredient that you can purchase at a store but it is SOOO easy to make at home it seems kinda silly to buy it. I use it in my mojito recipe, sangria and many more drinks. Over the next few weeks I am going to be sharing a few […]
Just this week we got word that Tavis’s job will be taking him (and Aiden and I will be tagging along) to Washington, DC for 4 months, and we leave in 4 days!!! More on that craziness soon… We will be taking the Airstream up to DC so we don’t have to live in a […]
I (we) started flying with the little guy when he was 6 weeks old. I would have rather waited until he was a little older but we had no choice since we were moving to Puerto Rico for my husbands new job. For the two and a half years since then I have been flying with […]
This is easily one of my favorite weeknight dinners. This was the recipe that my Cuban friend’s mom used to make her pork roast. Her mother, my friend’s grandmother, was born and grew up in Cuba. She fled to Florida soon after she was married, and brought with her a wealth of delicious recipes. I […]
So I have been crazy busy lately… maybe not as busy as I feel but overwhelmed to say the least. Our friends, Shane and Jen invited us to join them down on the beach for a bonfire/grill out and I immediately agreed because we were wanting to get to the beach this weekend but hadn’t actually […]
Soooo… it all started today when Tavis and I were talking about cutting out refined carbs for a week or two to reset our eating habits. We are not “no-carb” people but we find it useful to drop a few pounds if we spend a week or two getting all our carbs from fresh veggies […]

I was in desperate need of a new recipe the other day. You know those days… the ones when you have a full fridge and pantry but nothing really sounds good…? Or is that just me? In any case I found myself perusing through a few recipe sites looking for inspiration and I stumbled upon […]
Lately I have been craving heavy filling soups. Soups that feel like a hug when you take a bite. I have always loved soups but I think part of this new found obsession comes from the lack of seasons where we live, Puerto Rico. I have been craving a trip “north” to Florida so that […]
This last summer I saw these delicious little pizza muffins all over Pinterest and just HAD to give them a try!! So I grabbed the ingredients next time I saw them at the store and tried my hand at them. They were really wonderful!! We loved them… except for one little thing. If you bake them long enough to cook the dough, the pizza sauce got so hot and it was hard to cool the center down before the outside go cold… The crust and dough made the prefect little insulator that, shy of eating them completely cold, you were alway biting into a molten pit of lava sauce each time. Ok, maybe that was a little dramatic but it was hot!! Although it is trendy to make thinks in cute little muffin tins, I started to think outside the box… What if, rather than making pizza in muffin tins, we laid them flat!!!! I know, it is kinda revolutionary thinking but just stick with me here. If you lay them flat, there is no little pool of molten sauce to attack you with every bit!!! The pizza and sauce cool off in about 5 minutes after removing them from the oven.
Happy New Year!! Are you looking for a little extra cash to start your new year off right? Maybe you would like to spoil your special some with a fun stay-cation or a night on the town. Maybe you just need a little extra cash to cover the holiday spending. Use this cash prize (paid […]
