Laundry Sucks………or is that soaks?

I hate public laundromats. I really do, they suck.  Even some of the campgrounds have lousy laundromats. Sadly, it is what it is when you go camping/RVing, but………..  I found a product called Soak.  At first, I thought this is another gimmick product out there.  I purchased a small…

Adding A Dyson Vacuum To Our Airstream Basecamp – We Made Another Change

What’s on the Firedisc? Is that Fried Rice?

I do enjoy my fried rice and have tried many times to figure it out. Then I heard two tips. First use fresh ingredients and second use freshly made short grain sticky rice. I’m getting closer but I still haven’t found the pot of…

Did You Just Run Out Of Propane?

Chicken Parm or Fried Chicken

Over the years I have never been able to make good “fried chicken”. Sure I have pounded a breast flat and covered them in bread crumbs for a pan fry or lemon pepper seasoning. Maybe even turned them into pinwheels, but fried chicken has…
