Chicken chorizo casserole

You cant really go wrong with a casserole can you ? but casseroles from my youth were wet flavourless and frankly awful. I went off of them for a very long time. You also cannot go wrong with a slow cooker. We have owned four of them now. Each of them were used for about a month then consigned to the loft, then the bin. But strangely this cooker has made it almost to a year of constant use. Ironically it was purchased for the caravan, yet has only made it to the caravan once! Ok so here is the recipe for four hungry people. 3 chicken breasts – diced. 1 chorizo sausage – the pre-cooked...

Pulled pork

This recipe may break the convention of what being able to cook while camping. In fact we cooked this pulled pork in our slow cooker at home, but as you will see you can in fact cook this well in advance and simply warm up when you are al set up on site. – We plan on doing just this when we go for our big family get together later in 2015. This recipe is a perfect one for when there are many mouths to feed, you’re having a bit of party – or just incredibly hungry. The preparation can be quite time consuming but I can assure you it is worth it. What you will need. 3Kg pork shoulder roast 2...

Golden Syrup cup cake

Here is a perfect little recipe for a quick pudding. An internet sensation of mug cakes has revealed this little delight. We pre measure the dry ingredients into a zip lock bag and mix when on site. Just a word of warning – you will need a microwave and please make sure your cups are microwave safe – so no plastic or tin mugs. Also the mugs will be super hot so please make sure no children handle them when removing from the microwave.   Ingredients 1 large free-range egg, beaten 8 tablespoons self-raising flour 4 tablespoons sugar 4 tablespoons rapeseed/vegetable oil or melted butter 2...

Recipe ideas..

It’s a bit of a paradox really. I want to be able to go away and have great food, yet I don’t really want to take the entire kitchen with me to create a superb meal. I’ve recently read a book that is aimed at those who are cooking while in their Caravan. The list of equipment and store cupboard items are quite staggering! If you take the contents of the kitchen, where exactly are we going to pack the boules or swingball ? I’m penning down and creating some of the recipes that we enjoy when we are away and obviously testing them on how easy they are to create while in the caravan. It strikes...
