How to Get your Coffee–Fix When You Are Camping

I don’t know about you, but Glyn and I are coffee geeks and are pretty fussy about the coffee we drink. We were treated to proper morning coffee on-site when we recently stayed at The Tavistock Camping & Caravan Club site – our favourite campsite on Dartmoor in Devon. Kate, from Peace and Coffee, brings her cute coffee wagon on site most mornings and makes a great cup of coffee. But how can you make real coffee in your own campervan at any time of the day? I decided to find out what sort of coffee kit is out there for us campers…

CAMPERVAN RECIPES: Sweet and Sour Chicken Kebabs

Another great recipe from Kim at Kim’s Cravings! These Sweet and Sour Chicken Kebabs look really easy and tasty as well as nutritious. In fact so quick and easy it is the sort of thing you could throw together for a weeknight, ‘sponny’* BBQ in the garden after work on a warm evening.

*’Sponny’ is the word my New Zealand friend uses to describe anything spontaneous and fun.

CAMPERVAN RECIPES: More-ish Lamb Burgers from Moor-ish Dartmoor (sorry..)

We are not long back from a magical weekend on Dartmoor in Devon which is one of my favourite places to camp and explore. I had a pack of lamb mince from home which needed using up and I was trying to think of how to best use it in a campervan recipe. As it turned out it made 2 meals for us: some gorgeous healthy burgers and some meatballs for a pasta dish the next day…

Another great idea from Cooking Without Limits. I might be tempted to try this with some frothy milk which I make in the van with a battery-operated, milk frother https://www.amazon.co.uk/Ventuci-VENTUCI-Premium-Milk-Frother/dp/B01M4QIK4B/ref=sr_1_12?ie=UTF8&qid=1494235615&sr=8-12&keywords=hand+whisk+battery

CAMPERVAN BANG-ON BREAKFASTS: Apple & Cinnamon French Toast

Just tried out my delicious new breakfast recipe on our latest campervan trip to the Dorset coast – Apple & Cinnamon French Toast.  French Toast (sometimes called Eggy Bread) is a great way to start the day as it is very satisfying and gives you enough energy to keep having adventures until lunchtime. Here is my pimped-up version that is outrageously luxurious…

LUSCIOUS LUNCHES: Girona Salad

Just wanted to share a Luscious Lunch that I made today for Glyn and I from bits and pieces that I had in the house already. I was going to make a pizza but I didn’t have all the ingredients I needed and, as it was Easter Sunday, all the supermarkets were shut. So I decided to make a ‘sponny’ (spontaneous) salad based on a dish that Glyn and I once had in a cafe in the beautiful Spanish city of Girona, and it turned out to be super delicious…
