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!!

Need women suggestions


Very thoughtful of you, and somewhat practical,  but a hard copy is just more "stuff" when the time comes.. Any recipe can be found online. JMHO BTW, I love your enthusiasm.  Keep dreaming.  I AM!!!

Traditionnal oven are getting rare these days in MH and we will need to get use to cook in a convection microwave, I'm looking to find some receipe books for this type of cooking.  I've browsed the RV cooking show and RV bookstore but didn't find anything perhaps I'm blind or I was not looking at the right place.   Christmas is coming and thought my wife would appreciate receipe books.  We will have to get rid a lot of stuff but receipe books are always usefull.  We never use a microwave to cook only for heating and defrosting.

I'm sure to find a good chef among all the women living the rv lifestyle.  Any input or idea will be appreciated. 

Thanks Jean

When I do a web search for "convection oven cookbook" I get a bunch of hits. I did the same on Amazon.com and there are many cookbooks available.

Now that we have a Breville Smart Oven, we rarely use the microwave convection oven as an oven.

I agree with Mary Sunshine's comments, there are also eBooks you can buy. We've actually bought 2 Kindle cookbooks but to be honest, I've hardly used them.hmm  We're finding that we grill 90% of the time which comes down to which meat, which marinade / rub / seasoning do we want to use and what kind of salad do we want???   We're finding that by using the grill, especially in warmer temps, we're not heating up the RV as much and we're eating healthier and we have a lot less dishes, which as cheif dishwasher I really like.smile

II use my micro/convection like any other oven. You just have to watch the height. Really mucked up a loaf of bread, but just needed to cut the recipe down. Only thing I don't like is not having a broiler.

I just removed the 2 drawers below the gas cooktop and added an attwood gas range oven.....simple conversion and got to keep the micro convection in case.....of course I prefer a printed cookbook to flip thru the pages over downloads......but the internet has tons of sites for recipes just for the asking!!!

We use our oven quite a bit. Some do, some don't. But, like above, the RV's are usually set up with space for oven below the range, so if you have drawers, on most RV's, remove them, and an oven fits right in.

I really dislike Microwaves.. I love my Convection oven, I have been convection cooking for more then 20 years, and for the life of me, I cannot cook anything in a conventional oven (without burning it to death).

Convection ovens, traditionally are about an hour faster per/pound then conventional

Not withstanding the sexist subject line and that you're going to buy your wife a cookbook as a Christmas present  biggrin ,   I'll pass along my 1 cent worth since I, the man, do a lot of the cooking in the RV.  I frequent online recipe places targeted for convection microwave cooking then print those off and put in a small loose leaf binder.  That way I get only those recipes that I wish to use and not the whole cookbook. 

I'm doing research on getting a motorcycle.  If it is OK, I'll PM you for some thoughts.

A convection oven allows heat to be lowered 25% and cooking time 25% and removes "hot spots in the oven for a more even cooking heat distribution.


conventional ovens gain heat in the top of the oven so as you raise the rack the oven temp is actually hotter....the thermostat on a conventional oven has a rise/ fall 15 to 25 degree spread and takes longer to recoup if the door is opened and because the heat is generated by a fixed source (electric element or burner) it creates a edging hotspot due to lack of circulation.

 The cool thing about a lot of online sites is you can store your favorite recipes in your favorites and find them easily later... Of course you do have to remember which site it was at.

TXRVer...a lot of men cook...you didn't need the motorcycle reference to establish masculinity...we understand. That's the cool thing about RV-Dreams, we all understand. Gotta run, I'm preparing salmon for dinner.

That wasn't intended. Guys cook, ladies drive bikes. I guess it didn't come across well.  I really am buying a bike. Since it's the first time, I wanted some sage (no cooking pun intended) advise from an experienced rider who also RVs.

I use a great app on my iPad called "the recipe box". You can search on line for recipes and download to app or copy & paste. Then you can save, organize, make notes, shopping lists, favorites, etc.. I love it. You can even scan paper recipes into it. Once the data is there it is on your device & you dont need Internet to view, which is nice if you don't have service. I a currently working on storing all my collected recipes here "for the road". Hope you check it out.. Good luck.
