An adjustable cutlery tray is going to sort out one of my biggest RV kitchen beefs

For the five years that my wife and I have traveled around North America in our 40' motorhome, I've been throwing all of our cutlery, unorganized, into a single drawer, like some kind of animal. It's not that I don't want to find a fork when I need one. The drawers you'll find in most motorhomes and trailers are small.

Roast Vegetables on a Rack for Maximum Crispiness

Water is the enemy of crisp, perfectly golden brown roasted vegetables—which sucks, because vegetables contain a lot of it. If you’re all about those crispy edges, try reaching for a cooling rack. More air circulation means all that water will actually evaporate, so your vegetables turn out crispy every single time. Read more...

How to Make the Best Pureed Vegetable Soup

Sheet Pans Make Great Pan Sauces Too

It’s hard to beat sheet pan meals for convenience. Roasting proteins and vegetables side by side in the same pan is a fuss-free path to a complete meal. Well, almost complete—where’s the sauce? A sheet pan is still a pan, so why do we reserve pan sauces for skillets? Read more...

Leave Onion Roots Intact for Easier Slicing and Dicing

By now, I could chop an onion in my sleep: slice it in half, trim off the stem and root, peel, and slice away.
