Where can I find good recipes?


Hi everyone!  I would like to know where I can find good RV oven, stovetop and microwave recipes.  Thanks! :)

I am sure you are looking for free ones, but here is a cookbook by a long time full timer - http://www.amazon.com/Miss-Terrys-Kitchen-Terry-Russell-ebook/dp/B00IP1O66K

I guess you would need to define "good" unless you are saying that you are expecting to need different recipes than what you are using now. I just put my "good" recipes on the 3 x 5 note cards that are spiral bound. The internet is chock full of recipes, just list the ingredients you are thinking of using into a search engine and you get bombarded with choices.

There must be a gazillion online recipe sites.  If you're using any online recipe sites now, I'd continue with those, as most of the things you can cook in a sticks n bricks you can also cook in an RV.  I often use recipes from the Food Network website, also www.cooks.com.  Often, you can go in to a recipe site & you can enter a search term like "slow cooker" or "convection oven".  You'll get lots of recipes for those specific types of cooking.

Thanks for the replies everyone. How can full size oven recipes be modified for a smaller RV oven?

You really don't need to modify your recipes. A 9 x 13 pan and pizza pans fit in the RV oven. A good purchase is a pizza stone to keep in the oven though or some other sort of stone to distribute the heat better since some of the ovens tend to be too hot on the bottom of the pans and burn things. We scrapped microwaves long ago in favor of toaster ovens.

My website has a whole page of recipes that I have personally field tested :). Only about 50 percent of what I try to cook ends up on there and everything is Lee approved :).

When I need a 'recipe' i just google the ingredients I have on board and find ideas. And go from there. There's really nothing different about cooking in an RV than a regular kitchen. At least, not for me.... then again, I did most my baking in a toaster oven before I hit the road anyway.

 Allrecipes is my favorite also!  I have a Breville toaster oven that I use in the AS, which will not accommodate a 9 x13.  But, for just two of us I do not to feel we need a full recipe.  Many times I will make 2 8x8 and freeze one for later.  Even though our freezer is so small I like having at least one frozen casserole for nights I don't feel like cooking. 

If you like to bake King Arthur flour has great recipes.    There are great cooking blogs out there, so I am always experimenting with new recipes from blogs.

We just cook like we did in the house. She bakes in the convection just like our house oven, bread, turkey, chicken, beef, veggies, pasta, etc. stove top stuff cooks the same way it did at the SoB. Maybe I'm over simplifying but, I'd starve if We couldn't experiment.

YEAH for Mike!!

There are a whole lot of delicious recipes online - most of them are NOT healthy and loaded with either fat, sodium, sugar or processed crap (sorry).

Eat clean, simple, local and organic whenever possible. That's my food philosophy and I'm sticking to it on the road or not smile

As a nutritional consultant and chef, I spend an inordinate amount of time perusing food and recipe related websites. Two of my favorites that have been mentioned here, are EatingWell and AllRecipes. However, many times I have to carefully read through a recipe, look at the nutritional analysis and make various changes based on those numbers. It's my experience that when something is promoted as low fat, you can bet there is more salt and/or sugar. After all, these 3 ingredients are what makes food taste  so yummy, right?

Not saying food has to taste like cardboard - NO WAY! I do believe that MOST things are good in moderation and making healthier choices at least 80% of the time, allows for special occasions, treats and cravings.

Regarding the pantry list on AllRecipes - I think it's a very basic start, BUT, it also suggests canned vegetables (high sodium and low nutrient value), as well as canned fruit (excess sugar). That's not to say that having a couple of cans of beans, corn or peaches on hand are taboo, but fresh is best and then frozen.

It seems that one of the greatest challenges is lack of space (duh), so what's the solution?

I wrote an ebook last year, "How to Stock a Healthy Kitchen Pantry", that I'm in the process of modifying for "off the grid" cooking. I would love input from all of you as to what works and what doesn't work in an RV kitchen; as well as what challenges and successes you have experienced while on the road. Can't live without kitchen tools and ingredients, words of wisdom, shopping, storage, etc.

Would it be helpful to have access to healthier shopping options as  you travel from city to city, state to state?

If you know people who need to eat gluten or dairy free, the magazine Living Without is useful - http://www.livingwithout.com/.  Once you are a subscriber, the online recipes are available to you.  I know the snicker doodles are great. wink

Thanks for the link Bill. I'll be taking a healthy pastry and baking 1 year program that will cover gluten-free, lactose-free, vegan, diabetic and heart healthy, etc.

I'll be sharing along the way, so stay tuned.

 

I love discovering new websites and reading articles.

I found this blog to have amazing recipes. They are all designed to be cooked in an RV kitchen- with little mess and few pots! They are also all pretty healthy, which we all know can be a struggle on the road. Check it out: http://www.mobilerving.com/blog/category/diet-for-a-tiny-house

Along the line of healthier eating, I LOVE http://www.skinnytaste.com.  Of the many recipes of her's I've tried there has only been one I would call a fail.  Even then it wasn't awful.  Just not my favorite.  You can search by ingredient or by type of recipe.   One other advantage for RV cooking -- since portion control is a focus, most things don't make a huge batch!  For things I've tried and like, I often make a double batch to have leftovers.

I have a ton of recipes on my blog ...all prepared by me in our RV. For each recipe I list what type of cooking method is required and the ingredients used as a quick reference. I'm not saying I am the best cook in the world, but I do go to some trouble and if both Lee and I don't like it the recipe doesn't make the cut.

I'm no cook, and thus have no idea of what makes up a good recipe.  Recently, over on a firearms forum, one of the members started a thread in which he posted pictures and his healthy recipes.  Being as ignorant as I am about cooking, I asked him if any of them were good for those that were diabetics, and, I asked if he could mark future ones as good for diabetics.  I have two sisters-in-law, a brother-in-law, and one son that have diabetes.  He wrote back and listed off the ones that were for diabetics.  Hopefully, his future ones will include that notation with each recipe.

As others have mentioned, there are tons of online recipe places.  I favor Food Network and AllRecipes.  Instead of keeping cookbooks in the RV which take up space, I print the recipe off of the online site and put them in a thin 3 ring binder. Those are only the ones I want to cook again.  

I am going to have to give a try to Technomadia's idea of Googling what I have on board.  Wonder what I come up with considering its beer, left over spaghetti, and some peanut butter? no

"Wonder what I come up with considering its beer, left over spaghetti, and some peanut butter?" Sounds like an episode of Chopped.
