My whole life I have had a passion for cooking. My first job was a dishwasher when I was 13 years old in a restaurant and just being around food made me happy. Coming from a large family with two brother and two sisters a lot of our home cooked meals were quick, easy and contained either rice or pasta because it was on the cheaper side.
A staple in our household was a creation my mom came up when I was younger called “Chicken Divine” it was a casserole style dish that included chicken, rice, mushroom soup, cheese, and broccoli. I still love it today and she made specifically to get us to eat broccoli when we were young.
Now that I am older and a little wiser I realize that it isn’t the most healthy of choices but every now and then I will indulge and whip up a pot. This particular dish sticks in my mind because of how simple it is to make and how little mess it actually creates.
I’ll admit that when Rving for the first few times, my mind was set to have these elaborate meals planned out and really cook some “gourmet” style meals, that was a mistake. RV kitchens tend to be a lot smaller than a regular kitchen and therefore having three pots/pans going at once and tons of ingredients just doesn’t work.
THE GAME CHANGER
One pot recipes truly changed how I look at cooking while Rving. When thinking about cooking and using one pot, stocking up on the same types of food help you become more creative and use the same ingredients in different ways (meats, vegetables, spices, starches)
SIMPLE AND EASY RECIPES
Here are some of my favorite recipes I have used over the past few months while cooking in an RV Kitchen. I love comfort food and
1.) One Pot Spaghetti
This has to be one of my all time favorite one-pot recipies. If you love spagheti as much as I do then I am sure you will be on top of your cooking list for your next RV trip.
If you want to give it a little kick, add some red chili flakes or some hot sauce sauce in there too.
2.) Southern Style Chicken and Shrimp Skillet
Skillet cooking is extremely popular and this dish is one that I picked up a few years back and I keep coming back. I usually don't include the shrimp when I am camping as it just seems a little over the top but if your feeling the seafood be sure to pick it up. I usually will pick up a store bought rottesserie chicken when I am on the road as I can make many different meals from it and none of the work.
I also love the fact you can easily substitute with vegetables for a vegetarian option too.
3.) Chili Mac and Cheese
This is the perfect recipe for those chilly October camping trips. It is super easy to prepare and it a combination of two favorites, chilli and mac and cheese....do we need to say more?
I can't take credit for this recipe as it is one I found poking around on the internet searching for new recipies. You can find the full recipe here.
This may be one of my biggest obsessions when it comes to breakfast, lunch or dinner. I love to eat it anytime. I first had the pleasure of eating Shakshuka in a brunch spot in Ottawa and after that one time I needed to add this into my kitchen cooking ASAP.
Over the years I have added many different seasonings and spices to mix it up and have added many seasonal vegetables to the mix. But for simplicity, I will stick with my basic version and leave the creativeness to you.
