Living in an RV has it’s challenges such as where to store everything from food to your cooking tools. Having prepared many meals in a small RV kitchen for several years now, we’ve finally mastered the art of small kitchen organization and storage. We admit, it can be a bit of a challenge trying to utilize every inch of kitchen storage space without having to sacrifice having easy access to our food, condiments, kitchen tools and supplies.
Just because we live in a small RV with a tiny kitchen doesn’t mean putting out delicious gourmet meals isn’t just a pipe dream. Since downsizing to our tiny Class C motorhome, I’ve formulated a whole new way of meal planning and some RV cooking tips. From storing provisions and ingredients to my much-needed kitchen gadgets, we simply don’t have the storage we were accustomed to before which affected the way I cooked. But now that I have that all down. While we are enjoying our even more nomadic RV lifestyle, I can still chef it up in the kitchen! Just on a much smaller scale.
Kitchens in RVs, campers and boats are tiny. We all know that. But that doesn’t mean we have to compromise by limiting our kitchen necessities. It also doesn’t mean we should have to constantly worry about messes made going down the road.
But, we as RV owners, also have other concerns when it comes to storage; weight. Since our fifth wheel has limited space and weight capabilities, we had to come up with creative ways to store our kitchen essentials. So, we’ve put together our list of space saving RV kitchen space saving storage solutions based on what we use in our RV galley.
I can’t believe it’s already been over three years since we took delivery of our Heartland Landmark 365. One of the features that sold us on the Landmark was the beautiful, large, fully-functional RV kitchen. The island creates a more ample food prep surface. Oh, and that big single farmer’s sink allows for cleaning large pots and pans. However, one little issue just grated on me that needed to be updated; our kitchen faucet.
With all this talk of the crazy weather happening all over the country this winter, there’s no better time than now to cook a big ole pot of comfort food. Having lived up in Maine and Massachusetts for many years, this was a dish I often made on cold and snowy days. Sometimes with several different variations, this was our one of our most favorites because it is super easy to make with just a few ingredients. Also known to Nor’easters as Bubbles and Squeak, New England Boiled Dinner will warm and make your tummy so happy, it will sing…literally!!
You’ve no doubt, seen a trend lately in RV upgrades. Everything is WHITE; walls, cabinets, textiles, window shades, etc. And we get that, its certainly a personal choice. But, in all-things-decor, its a trend that will change; whether it takes weeks, months or even years.
Improvise and adapt; a common military phrase when you start with practically nothing or something less desirable and we make it great. The same holds true in our RV lifestyle.
Living quarters in RVs and campers are quite limited. But that doesn’t mean our world or journey is. We love to be outside, especially when the weather is kind to us. So, instead of sitting inside watching tv or working, we relocated ourselves to enjoy the outdoors. That means, we need to make an outdoor living space or outdoor living room. So, this is our way of improvising and adapting.
Recently, we dined at a cafe in small town Fort Gibson, Oklahoma. Usually, these quaint eateries have some signature surprise that sets them apart from ‘the usual’ at other cafes and diners. This delicious little concoction of a salad tickled our tongues with a plethora of flavors. This Cucumber Pineapple salad was cool, refreshing; just inviting me to dissect it and recreate it back at our RV.
