  • What to Eat & Drink in Greece
~Carmen I’ve always been a big fan of Greek food.  Every year, Joe and I attend Memphis’s huge Greek festival and load up on pastries and delicious entrees.  On our recent return to Greece, I wanted to make sure Joe and I didn’t waste any meal (or stomach space) on subpar food, so before we......
  • Dutch Oven Chicken Pot Pie
~ Carmen Some people keep it simple when camping with the standard hotdogs and hamburgers.  However  at our campsite we like to mix it up!  My favorite way to campcook  (over a campfire or using charcoal briquettes) is using a dutch oven (read Camp Cooking Equipment You’ll Love). On our latest camping trip to DeGray Lake,......

  • How to Make Sushi at Home
  ~Carmen Joe and I love Japanese food.  Joe lived in Japan for three years so he knows his sushi.  Hopefully, he’ll be able to take me to Japan someday soon.  In the meantime, when I’m feeling “wifey”, I’ll make Joe sushi at home (usually he does all of the cooking).  I must admit, it......

  • 5 Reasons to Go to the National Shrimp Festival
~ Carmen Now, I know not everyone is a fan of seafood.  There are those who have never tried it or are plum crazy.  The kind of people who prefer cats over dogs.  Their judgment may be flawed, and they can’t be trusted,  but for those of you with refined tastes, who love buckets of......
  • Dutch Oven Pineapple Upside Down Cake
~ Carmen I’m not the cook at home.  That would be Joe!  But something draws me to the campfire when it comes to cooking.  I just love my camp cooking equipment (read Camp Cooking Equipment You’ll Love), especially dutch ovens.  We actually have two cast iron dutch ovens, one we keep in our camper and one......
    ~ Carmen I’m always looking for dishes that would do well in my seasoned dutch oven ( see Camp Cooking Equipment You’ll Love).  To be a good camping recipe, it also needs to be easy.  Often, we don’t start coals until the sun sets and it cools down, which means I’m combining ingredients in......
~ Carmen I’ve always thought that if you really want experience a place, the culture’s food should be the primary focus.  So much of our values are wrapped up in what and how we eat.  Joe and I strive hard to eat local whenever we go to a new place.  That applies to our local......
