CORN MUFFIN MIX – an update

Hi there folks.  I realize that I’ve been a wee bit absent lately.  I get that way sometimes, feeling my inspiration lacking but every time I start thinking about spring and what form it might take – specifically, picking up our little land trawler, RED II camper extrordinaire – I get motivated. Planning is my thing and at the moment I’m making lists of what […]

JUDITH’S AUSSIE BITES (with product review)

This feels like a celebration and I have been saving today’s post for just this special occasion.  Omnia…you know those genius stove top oven folks?…well, they sent me one of their new products to try out.  The Muffin Ring…I’ve just finished using it for the first time and I absolutely LOVE it!

Anyway, the sales agent who sold us our tow beast was just arriving and with her she brought a big bag of Italian pretzels that her Momma had made in the early hours (apparently […]

My recent post for Cosmopolitan Jelly Shots got me thinking… why not make some non-alcohol ones for an onboard snack? I know that health-wise, eating real fruit is better that fruit juices for many reasons, but if we are unable to always have fresh fruit available on the boat this could be an alternative… relatively healthy… quick energy snack… easy to make… doesn’t take up […]
