Sauteed Fresh Corn with Cherry Tomatoes

Sauteing corn is so easy, so fast and so delicious. Great for the RV too, as you don’t have to heat/use all that water to boil corn-on-the-cob. Slice the corn over a cookie sheet – the large surface will capture (most) of the kernels that will try to escape onto the floor. I have prepared […]

Roasted Cauliflower

Roasting cauliflower brings out a rich, nutty flavor in the vegetable. It is also incredibly easy. The head of cauliflower is broken-up into florets, tossed with a spicy mixture and then roasted in the oven. This is just a basic recipe – add any herbs or spices that sound interesting or any that would go […]

Zucchini Gratin

My zucchini gratin only has six ingredients and goes together in just a few minutes. 1 cup grated fresh parmesan cheese 1 Tablespoon all-purpose flour ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper (or to taste) 4 cups grated fresh zucchini squash (details below) ¼ cup coarse-chop fresh basil leaves ¼ cup seasoned breadcrumbs (preferably home-made) Heat […]

Spinach Gratin

This delicious gratin is very popular! One 16 oz bag of frozen chopped spinach will also work in this recipe. Sometimes I use Gruyere cheese on the top. 2 Tablespoons butter 1 cup yellow onion, chopped fine Two 10 oz. boxes frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry 1 cup half & half ½ teaspoon […]

Fondue Potato Gratin

This is my go-to side dish for dinner parties. A cheesy potato gratin – flavored like a pot of bubbling fondue – is always welcomed and the baking dish is always empty after the party. But the beauty of this recipe is (because the potatoes are par-boiled, they will not discolor) the gratin can be […]

Twice-Baked Potato Casserole

I am stating right upfront – this recipe is not healthy. It is not low-fat. However this casserole is delicious, easy to assemble, can be prepared ahead of time… is loaded with potassium and it is gluten free. It will also make you very popular at your next RV potluck. Twice-Baked Potato Casserole does require […]

Orzo Casserole

This very popular casserole can be served as a side dish or makes a great vegetarian entree. Orzo casserole can be made earlier in the day and baked before serving. 1 pound orzo (rice-shaped pasta) 6 garlic cloves, unpeeled 1 cup heavy cream 1 cup chicken or vegetable stock 1 cup fresh-grated Parmesan cheese, divided […]

Balsamic Roasted Vegetables

This sauce will work with a wide variety of vegetables – also try fingerling potatoes, mushrooms, squashes and carrots. Balsamic Roasted Vegetables is a great vegetarian/vegan main course, served with a grain – or a great side dish to roasted meats. If you are heading out in the RV, place the veggies and dressing in […]

Tomato Pudding

Tomato Pudding is a RV-kitchen-friendly summer-flavored vegetable side dish perfect to serve with grilled meats. 8 roma tomatoes (about two pounds), cut into half-inch cubes 3 cloves minced garlic kosher salt (if necessary) black pepper, to taste 2 Tablespoons extra virgin olive oil (plus more for oiling the baking dish) 1/2 cup fresh basil leaves, […]

Mushroom Schnitzel

Mushroom Schnitzel are perfect as a side-dish, or as a main dish for a vegetarian or Passover entree. These days, I use the already-sliced mushrooms – chopping them a bit with the spatula while they are sautéing. 4 Tbs. butter 1 cup green onion, sliced 1 lb. mushrooms, chopped 3 eggs ½ cup minced fresh […]

Warm Potato Salad with Arugula

RV-easy, Warm Potato Salad with Arugula can be served as a meat-free main course, but is equally lovely served with a roast chicken. (I just love it with a roast chicken!) If you are cooking for vegetarians, this is the perfect easy entree – and if you leave-off the cheese garnish, it will be suitable […]

Tomato, Zucchini & Rice Casserole

This RV-easy recipe is perfect to use your late season vegetable garden bounty – tomatoes, zucchini and basil. Watch the salt in this casserole: there could be a lot of salt in the stock and parmesan cheese is quite salty. Use an 8×8-inch pan (that can be covered with foil) or a small, covered baking […]

My Latkes (and my Other Latkes)

Potato Pancakes – my way. Great for breakfast or with roasted meats. Use shredded hash brown potatoes from the dairy section of your favorite supermarket – a great short-cut for RV cooking. There is no longer a reason to grate potatoes (and your fingers)! 2 eggs 1/3 cup flour (or matzo flour) salt & pepper, […]
