  • We made our own marshmallows the other night! It's something Brian has been wanting to try ever since we discovered SMASHMALLOW from @snackapade at a natural foods expo in Baltimore last summer. Marshmallows are not something either of us ever really eat with the exception of the occasional s'more on the occasional camping trip. I guess because the stuff of our childhood was so uninspired and kind of weird. The thought of gourmet mallows never even occurred to us - until now. -

I wanted them to be vegan and I found a great recipe from @happyfoodholly that was simple to make. We even spiced them up a bit by making a Mexican hot chocolate dusting the was equally simple to make - cocoa powder, cinnamon, cayenne, red chili powder and sugar. Definitely made our s'mores muy deliciosos! - - - -

  • We've been wanting to try the Impossible Burger for a while now, merely out of curiosity. We finally had our chance when we visited @ukiahbrewingco for lunch recently. -
I would have to say that if we hadn't already known that it wasn't actually beef, it would have been damn near impossible to tell. I guess that's where the name comes from, lol. -
But seriously, the look, the smell, the mouthfeel - it was all spot on. And it didn't hurt that it was perfectly prepared - pink and juicy in the middle. -
It's just too bad that we are not into the monoculture of soy and corn, so this will have to be chalked up to "at least we tried it". Besides, it's hard to find a burger, impossible or not, that isn't fast food that doesn't cost less than $15 these days. FIFTEEN dollars!! For a burger!! Ugh.
-
Anywho, I've successfully eliminated pork from my diet and am pretty much done with beef, but I rarely ate it anyway. I suppose if I have the rare hankering for a burger, I'll have to go the trusty ol' veggie burger route. Or live without. I've gotten pretty good at living without, ha!

They may not be the most practical design, but they sure are pretty. I wouldn't mind building one someday if I found just the right piece of land. A girl can dream, can't she? ✨ Le sigh βœ¨β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €

  • Perk of campground work - access to a canoe and a lovely river just outside our door. It's a bit too cold for swimming and there's no fishing to be done in the summertime. But a leisurely float during downtime is all we need to clear our heads. πŸ›ΆπŸžβ €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €

  • Lots of green coming from the local farmers market. One thing about trying to eat seasonally is ending up with a whole lot of the same thing for weeks on end. So, getting creative with the ingredients available is the trick. β˜οΈβ €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €

When I look at this, I think fermented mustard greens, chard gratin, fava bean humus and fava bean pasta. Yes, those big, green pods in the middle are fava beans grown locally. We love to try new things. πŸ₯¬πŸ₯—β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €

And, of course, if you put things up through canning or dehydration, you can enjoy the spoils of last season if you just can't wait for your favorite veggies to come in. Like these gorgeous pickles and herbed salt from @double_d_farm. They even harvest their own sea salt! So cool! 🌊 πŸ’«β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €

We love kimchi. Salty, tangy, spicy, crunchy and funky. Uh huh, funky*. But in a good way – like umami funk that adds that right amount of indescribable something and elevates a dish that is good to a dish that is freakin’ great. When we want to …

Can we grow food while traveling around the country in an RV? That was one of our first questions when we decided to try homesteading on the road, or as Brian likes to call it, roadsteading. Our first idea was to build a sort of mobile greenhouse …

Raw Cocoa Beans

How hard can it be to make bean to bar chocolate at home? Roast some beans, peel and grind them into liquor, add some additional cocoa butter, sweeten, heat, grind some more, and then pour into bars. Sounds simple enough. So we looked into it, and as …

One of the benefits of living in Florida during the winter months – aside from 78 degree days in February – is the abundance of beautiful farmers’ market offerings of fruits and vegetables that we wouldn’t otherwise have access to if we were still in the Northeast. …
