Hi Everyone. Well, after 15 years the RV-Dreams Community Forum is coming to an end. Since it began in August 2005, we've had 58 Million page views, 124,000 posts, and we've spent about $15,000 to keep this valuable resource for RVers free and open. But since we are now off the road and have settled down for the next chapter of our lives, we are taking the Forum down effective June 30, 2021. It has been a tough decision, but it is now time.


We want to thank all of our members for their participation and input over the years, and we want to especially thank those that have acted as Moderators for us during our amazing journey living and traveling in our RV and growing the RV-Dreams Family. We will be forever proud to have been founders of this Forum and to have been supported by such a wonderful community. Thank you all!!

Recipe Websites


I'm always looking for recipes that are inexpensive, easy to prepare, and taste good!  Found a couple of websites today that I thought I'd share:

www.mealtime.org

www.5dollardinners.com

Both sites seem to have time-saving recipes, tips, etc.  Enjoy!

I am always looking for good recipes. We are trying to eat healthier too. A good source of recipes is Sparkpeople.com. I also use Pinterest to find recipes and have found lots of great food blogs through that site. One of my favorites is:

http://www.skinnytaste.com/

and here is a site from the Food Network that I like:

http://www.foodnetwork.com/sandras-money-saving-meals/recipes/index.html

So many great recipes out there I love looking.

My husband and I use http://allrecipes.com a lot. You can search by ingredient - great for finding ways to use up excess/leftover food items - and recipes are easy to scale down (or up) to fit the size of the dining group.

Other site features include a nice section with slow cooker recipes as well as user suggestions and ratings that help improve the usability of a particular recipe and eliminate the guess-work with respect to quality.

Epicurious is my favorite (http://www.epicurious.com/recipesmenus/bonappetit/recipes). I have almost 30 years of hard copy magazines (Gourmet & Bon Appetite) that will have to go when we start full-timing, but we do not need to give up the electronic access to the recipes

I like www.skinnytaste.com. Lots of good, healthy versions of my favorites there and some I never thought of... Chocolate Chip Chocolate Banana Muffins... Spicy Pumpkin Muffins... Even a recipe for turkey meatloaf that lets me sneak some zucchini into Kevin's diet!

My vote is for www.allrecipes.com.  I do believe it has everything you can imagine... and more.  As previously mentioned, you can adjust the amount of servings up or down with just a click of a button.  It will even prepare a grocery list and you can store your favorite recipes in your own file... if you just sign up.  And, when you do sign up, they will e-mail a receipt to you every day.  So easy, and the recipes are endless!  Peeps, I made the Overnight Blueberry French Toast for guests over the weekend.  Talk about scrumptuous and a HUGE HIT!  Check it out.  I have also made Forgotten Party Cookies that would be very convenient in an RV to satisfy the sweet tooth.  You heat up the oven to 375, put the cookies in, and turn the oven off.  Consequently, you don't use so much energy baking!  I LOVE IT!!!!!

Yeppers.  www.allrecipes.com  Just type "gluten free recipes" in the search box and VOILA!  (Is that how you spell it?)

Friends have been sharing their garden harvest, so I've had a lot of tomatoes & zucchini lately.  Got tired of zucchini bread, so I wanted to try a new recipe.  Found this one for Beef-Stuffed Zucchini.  It turned out very well.  You only need a frying pan for part of the recipe & a microwave for the rest, so it was easy to make in my RV kitchen.

Here's another interesting recipe website.  Some of these recipes seem a bit complex but they do sound interesting.  They also have gluten-free recipes.

Here's a couple more zucchini recipes that seem pretty rv friendly. I haven't tried them yet, but so far there has only been 1 recipe I tried from this site that I haven't been thrilled with.

Chicken Enchila Stuffed Zucchini Boats

Sausage Stuffed Zucchini Boats

I had a hard time getting rid of my cookbooks too. One thing I did was to scan some of the recipes into my computer. I've been able to find most of the ones on web sites or on Pinterest. I did keep a recipe box that I'm still going through on the road, and I did keep some of my favorite books.

We're still having a hard time getting rid of the cookbooks. I've narrowed the 200+ down to 8, plus scanned a ton of recipes including some favorites from monthly cooking magazines that I've now discontinued our subscriptions on. Just trying to decide if 8 is too many. I tried to keep some like "Joy of Cooking" that has all the basics, one that is dedicated to crock pot cooking and one specific for grilling. Are we taking too many? Should we be relying on websites more?

I had lots of cookbooks but now rely on the internet.  There are so many cooking blogs & websites, that you'll find more recipes than you could ever want.  There are also websites devoted to specialty cooking, like cooking in a crock pot, so you can find those kinds of recipes too.

Me too!  I had a garage sale last Fall in preparation and sold most of my cookbooks, but not before I copied and scanned my favs into my computer. I'm still wondering if I missed one!

Be sure to check out my website at www.GoodRVfood.com.  It's focus is on simple but delicious recipes and hints that are appropriate for a small RVgalley.  Most don't require an oven because I don't have one in my Class B Roadtrek but I also know a lot of big rigs also don't have a real oven.  Please check it out and send me your favorite recipes and hints.  You can also download the recipes as a pdf cookbook, and it's free!
