Prepare pancake mix as stated on the box.  Then pour all the batter into a large ziploc bag and freeze!  Once you are ready to use it, take it out of the freezer to thaw, snip off a corner of the bag, and you have quick & mess free pancake mix! (Just saw this on pinterest!)

There's a large group of friends and you're in charge of the corn on the cob.   How do you fix that when you don't have much room in your RV?    Place the corn in a clean cooler, fill with 2 kettles of boiling water and close the lid for 30 minutes and you're done!

Some great websites with recipes especially for RVers...


This website is really cool.  It presents food by country, tells you a bit about their food and provides some recipes.   The United States is broken down by regions.   Just a neat little site if you want to try something different...http://www.foodbycountry.com/

Some of my favorite recipes:

Breakfast in a bag:  Create a make it yourself bar with beaten eggs, sausage, spinach, cheese and any other ingredients you may want.  Using the strong seal ziploc bags, pour in eggs and add your desired items.  Secure the bag, Mush the ingredients around a bit and then place into a boiling pot of water. Everyone can cook at the same time.  For large groups, you may want to write your name in permanent marker on the bag.   Your omelette should be done in about three minutes!

Breakfast Sandwich:   Crack an egg into a small bowl and lightly scramble.  Add salt and pepper.  Microwave 60-90 seconds.  Use tongs to lift the egg out of the bowl and place on an english muffin that has a slice of cheese and a few thin slices of ham. (or an already cooked patty sausage)  Wrap the whole thing in a paper towel and microwave another 30 seconds to melt the cheese.  Easy! Yum!  Great in the morning with some fruit!

Crock Pot Pork Roast
Rinse and put dark red pork roast/shoulder into crock pot.   Cover with 1 envelope of dry onion soup.  Using the now empty envelope, fill with water and pour into crockpot.  Add small red potatoes, green pepper, black pepper and carrots.  Secure the crock pot lid.   Turn crockpot on high and let cook for 6-8 hours.     Left overs:  Shred the pork, mix with BBQ sauce and make sandwiches!

Easy Peasy Chili:
1 lb hamburger
1 can dark kidney beans
1 can spicy chili beans
1 can chopped tomatoes (or 1 can Rotelle if you like spicer)
1 package mild chili seasoning
1 16oz can of tomato sauce
1/2 tsp sugar

Brown the hamburger and drain.   Dump in all the other ingredients and stir.   Gets better the longer it sits, even better the next day.   Heat up and serve with fritos, shredded cheese and sour cream.... feeds 4

Cake in a Mug:  
1 coffee mug
1/3 cup cake mixture (see below)
3 tablespoons of water
microwave on high 1 minute

Mixture: Before you leave, mix one box of white cake mix with one box of angel food cake and store in large ziploc bag.   

Place the cake mixture in the mug, add water and stir well.  Microwave one minute on high and your cake is done.   It's good plain, but I have plastic containers of canned fruit pie filling like cherry and lemon that you can put a teaspoon of on the top...  I also use fresh strawberries, a dab of hot fudge or a tablespoon of ice cream.   Whatever you like.  It works and it's EASY!  http://newradio.com/RVDREAMRADIO/36464

Pork Tenderloin with Apples:

3 Slices Bacon
1 Pork tenderloin
3 Tart apples
(Granny Smith or Johnathans)

1/2 Cup Apple cider vinegar
1/2 Cup Water
1/4 Cup Sugar
Course, ground black pepper

In a skillet, brown bacon until crisp. Remove bacon and set aside. Reserve the bacon drippings and this same pan (you will need it). Remove all the silver and fat from the tenderloin. Sprinkle lightly with the course ground pepper. Place in the hot bacon grease and brown on all sides, then turn down the fire to low and let cook for approx. 25 to 30 minutes uncovered, turning every now and then. While the meat is cooking, core and slice the apples and set aside. Remove the meat after 25 or 30 mins. The pork will be done but still a little pink inside. You don't want it over cooked.

Set aside in a dish covered with foil to keep it warm. In a small bowl mix vinegar,water,sugar and stir until sugar is dissolved. add the apples and the vinegar mixture to the same pan and cook until apples are soft but not mushy. Slice tenderlion into medallions and pour apples over pork and then crumble bacon ontop and serve. Serve with a salad.
