Cooking in an Airstream kitchen and my favorite gadgets

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!

The Small Guys on Campus (end of day 3)

After a long day on the road there is nothing better than a pot roast that has been cooking all day in the camper while we were sight seeing. For Tavis and I it was nice to relax over dinner and not be sitting in a restaurant. For Aiden, there is nothing better than a post-dinner-wrestling-session […]

Road Trip Day 3, Blue Ridge Parkway

If you want to catch up on our Road Trip, you can do so here (Day 1 flying to the upper 48, Day 1 retake, Day 2 part 1 Biltmore Estate, Day 2 part 2 Campfire Lodgings) It would be the understatement of the year to just say that I took a lot of pictures […]

Road Trip Day 2, part 2 Campfire Lodgings

First of all I am going to apologize for the lack of updates… I made the classic mistake of thinking that I was going to have plenty of time to blog while on vacation… FAIL!! I had tons of free time but it was all spent sitting on a beautiful front porch, sipping something (coffee […]

Road Trip Day 2 part 1

If you are just joining us check out Day 1 here. We ended up with so many pictures from day 2 and I couldn’t narrow it down so I decided to break it up into to posts. The first one will be on the Biltmore Estate and the second one will be at the campground […]

Day 1 on the road… Retake

I decided that since the first week of our trip was a lot of maintenance, packing and getting ready for the road, I am going to start our day count over. That way I can erase all the craziness of the first week and a half. So this post is about the day before we […]

Days 1-3 of our 6 week road trip

So… we have been planning this trip for a while and have most everything lined up.  Although we didn’t put too much pressure on it being perfect, we were not expecting the “humor” that we experienced the first few days… The first leg of the trip went fairly smooth. The flight was great, for the […]

Airstream Road Trip!!

So in about a week Tavis, Aiden and I are flying back state side (we live in Puerto Rico currently) and we are going to be hitting the road in our Airstream travel trailer!! I am really excited because this will be our first big trip in a long time and our first “real” long […]

His first home was an Airstream

I never imagined it this way. I never sat there dreaming about having a baby of my own one day and bringing him home to an Airstream. I usually pictured a meticulously decorated nursery that I had fussed over for the past 9 months until it was perfect. His name was on the wall in […]

Easy Marinades for steak, kabobs and other grilled beef

We love to travel, and with that travel we get to eat… a lot… I’m not sure about you, but some of my strongest memories are  associated with smells or tastes. I will smell plumeria lotion and be taken back to a trip I took to Peru, when I was in high school, and I […]

Airstream Dreamin’

  So when I first met my husband, Tavis, he mentioned a few times in the course of our conversations, that he really liked Airstream travel trailers… a lot. So much, in fact, that he had lived in one full time for several years when he was active duty in the military. To his credit, his parents […]
