What’s for Breakfast? 3 Easy RV Alternatives to Pancakes

What’s for Breakfast? 3 Easy RV Alternatives to Pancakes

Last week on Episode 3 of the RV Family Travel Atlas, we talked about how our mornings at the campground have changed over the years. We used to feel like authentic camping days had to begin with eggs, bacon, and pancakes. But we soon realized that we liked to get out and about early, and we didn’t like the weight of a heavy breakfast dragging us down. So we adjusted our habits a bit and started eating things like yogurt, oatmeal, and peanut butter toast. Over time I’ve added some breakfast menu items that have eventually turned... Read More

Great Food without the Crowds: Eating and the Quiet Side of Acadia

Great Food without the Crowds: Eating and the Quiet Side of Acadia

This summer Good Morning America named Acadia National Park “America’s Favorite Place” and people from everywhere flocked to see what the fuss was all about. We found the park much more crowded compared to our previous visits, and this led us to explore some of the quieter places on the island. If you are visiting for the first time, places like Jordan Pond House in the National Park and The Lompoc Cafe in Bar Harbor are not to be missed. But don’t get stuck waiting in line at the crowded downtown tourist joints. Just a short drive away... Read More

Casual Eats and Yummy Treats: Road Food in the White Mountains, NH

Casual Eats and Yummy Treats: Road Food in the White Mountains, NH

If you have been following our adventures for awhile now, you know that we love a good road food joint. When you have young children, there is one rule of dining: In and out, and nobody gets hurt. Since we don’t eat out a ton when we are RVing, it is important to us that the places we do try are truly worth the hassle of braving a restaurant with three young kids. For this reason we always consult Jane and Michael Stern’s Roadfood and look for some great, casual eats in the area we will be visiting. We also grill the locals and... Read More

Campground Shrimp Boil: An Easy Summer Dinner for a Crowd

Campground Shrimp Boil: An Easy Summer Dinner for a Crowd

While planning our trip to Cape Cod, I was lucky to connect with a dear friend from childhood. When Simone found out where we would be staying in Eastham, she booked a nearby campsite with her family, and they drove out from the Boston area to meet us. I had invited them over to have dinner at our campsite one night, and I realized I needed to pick a meal that was easy to make so I could spend as much time with Simone and her family as possible. I also needed to pick something that could feed a crowd since I would be cooking for 13 people.... Read More

A Tale of Three Lobster Rolls in Three Towns: Cape Cod, Massachusetts

A Tale of Three Lobster Rolls in Three Towns: Cape Cod, Massachusetts

Every summer when we head into New England, we systematically work our way through the local seafood shacks. This tradition started four summers ago in Maine, where we happened to eat the best lobster roll of our lives at Marriner’s Restaurant in Camden. Then the quest began. We couldn’t help ourselves. Every lobster roll thereafter has been compared to that exemplar. Many have been delicious, but none have measured up to the memory. At this point we don’t even know if we are being fair. Perhaps our nostalgia has gotten the... Read More
