May 2019: Waiting for the sun!

Ok, this is not how it’s supposed to be. Rain, Rain, Rain, and then snow in APRIL! We’ve returned from our wonderful trip to Vienna and Italy. Had a quick pit stop in our home in Kaiserslautern and then off to the boat for a week over Easter holiday to deliver the goods!        The sun was out and the weather happened to be super, the first in a long time. We prepared the boat for our four-month travel to Friesland, NL.

And our guestroom is ready!

While in Ophoven, our harbor on the corner of Belgian and the Netherlands, we even got in a bike ride one sunny day.

There are ferries all over this land to transport cars, people, and bikers across the million waterways.

A super plus veggie bonus for this Easter holiday…spargel season begins! Thanks to this amazing season and a bit of sun we had a beautiful holiday on the boat. This recipe is a keeper…Asparagus and Spinach Eggs Benedict made with my homemade Spicy Hollandaise Sauce!

Then it was back to Kaiserslautern, and more RAIN, to give our home some tender loving care. Spring cleaning and just relaxing for a while, in the RAIN. Lutz headed to France for an “old guys” friend event (old in every way).

I spent my time with my dear friend Marilou (right) and my new friend Iwana (left). Watching movies and walking the streets of Kaiserslautern window shopping. Then a fine dinner of my favorite Chili Lime Shrimp. And no, that is not my ice cream coffee! I kept with hot tea and little Marilou had both the iced coffee and ice cream…lord to be young again.

We headed back to the boat on April 26th and brought our last load of supplies to begin our journey to Friesland NL.  But it was STILL raining and nearly freezing temperatures. Finally, one day of no rain we quickly headed to the “Cash Gas Station” to fill up Virus. She sure drinks a lot of gas! And yes, it’s the first figure, 538.61 Euros!

With the weather constantly changing from a drizzle to pouring rain and clouds we decided to wait it out in Ophoven for the sun to peek through before we hit the canals.  Having WIFI, I was able to spend a lot of time experimenting and creating some simple dishes in my little toaster oven. Plus eating some of my favorite soups, Lutz’s Lentil Soup, Sambal Oelek Asain Soup, and, of course, my favorite, Tom Kha Gai.  I won’t leave you hanging, I did create some yummy desserts as well. I’ll post this one soon. It’s a convertible recipe. You can use it for cookies or crumble. Plus no eggs! Use rhubarb or mixed berries, either way, the bottom has a snap and the center is a tart filling and the top a tasty crumble.

Mostly I read gluten-free sites or books in my favorite place, in the sun, when it came out. As for Lutz,

he played with his favorite toys and worked!.

Finally, the sun decided to cooperate. We took off before it could change its mind and made our way to Venlo, downstream the river Maas passing Roermond where we stayed for 3 days. This trip took us four hours to go 50KM so you can see we really are cruising. We were the only ones in the harbor…until the weekend came!

The city is filled with beautiful restorations since most of which were bombed during the war. This is one building that survived, the Mayors House or City Hall.

We also got to enjoy the company of Lutz’s cousin, Margaret, and her husband Julian for the day.

After our stay in Venlo, we headed to Leukermeer Harbor which is a two-hour drive from Venlo. Once again, we were the only ones in the guest harbor! Lovely three-day stay and sun came out off and on with a bit of rain.

Three days on this peaceful huge lake and no rain on the morning we had planned to leave, we cruised Virus, to a very nice harbor near Mook, Plasmolen Haven. This is where she will stay for the next two to three weeks. Duty called us back to Kaiserslautern. Lutz had to catch the hour long train ride with his bike back to Echt where he then biked for another hour to Ophoven, where our car stays for the season. Then he drove back to get me and the dirty clothes! 

We’re home now for a few appointments. One of which I am not the least bit excited about…I have to take the German driving test to get my residency card. I hate tests and the fact that I’ve been driving here for twenty years makes me crazy. I’ll keep you posted. I get three tries to pass!!!!! We might have to come back home again.

This month, since we were stationary waiting for the sun, I had plenty of time researching sites and reading. I wanted to share three cool sites that have inspired me! Each site has so much to offer in the way of nutrition, health, or cooking. I’m sure one of these sites can answer your burning questions and or meets your needs or interest.

April 2019: Street Eats with The Cook’n Coach

We’re back from our April travels! What an amazing adventure exploring and sampling savory and sweet “street eats”. Just to let you know, I worked my magic to stay gluten, soy and dairy free but sometimes things just happen. I was pleasantly surprised to find that the resort stocked a full shelf of gluten-free foods. I don’t usually buy gluten-free products but when in Italy “I needed” pasta and this was the safest way to enjoy the culture and the cuisine for me.

For those dishes that veered off my beaten path, I’ve been frantically working to turn them into squeaky clean dishes without gluten, soy or dairy. So during the next few months keep checking my site to see some crazy good “street eats conversions” gluten, soy, and dairy free delicious eats! While traveling I often prepared many meals in our apartment kitchen using local spices and local ingredients like this delicious Asparagus and Chicken Pasta. I’ll be posting this and more soon.

First Stop!
The trip was so enjoyable and the weather conditions were just right. A little sprinkle now and then but no downpours. We made a slow drive to Vienna and stopped halfway in the area of Passau for a night. Definitely a tourist city but filled with history and culture. We arrived 2 weeks before the Easter holiday so it wasn’t too busy but tour boats arrive now and then with a “boatload” of site sight-seers.  We stayed at an old hotel called Am Paulusbogen, on the river and decided, after walking the streets of this delightful town our hotel offered the best selection and price for trying some local cuisine! We weren’t disappointed. I enjoyed the local fish while Lutz dined on something I refuse to cook, liver & onions!

Breakfast was a sinch. I brought my own gluten-free bread and created the best arugula egg sandwich in the world…eat your heart out folks!

The next morning we headed to Vienna. It was super weather and spent four days touring and sampling some street eats. Just outside the museum, we found a cool cafe. Lovely homemade veggie soup (a dash of parmesan) and sweet potato fries with some savory dips!

We even got to sneak in a few dinners with Lutz’s son Dominik. He’s an amazing landscape architect #schulte&schoenes and has a nose and palate for good eats as well! He led us off the tourist-filled streets to a hidden authentic Austrian restaurant called Gasthaus Wolf. This is a must if you’ve spent all day touring and want off the beaten path to relax and enjoy the quaint building and a taste of Austria.

Traditional Appetizers: Dominik enjoyed Liver with Pickled Beets and Horseradish, Tongue (Lutz again!), And just when I said I don’t eat liver I ordered the Flädle Soup with a Liver Knödel. I might be changing my mind about this liver thing!
    

Main Dish: Dominik enjoyed Stewed Pork and homemade Spaetzle. Lutz tasted their Semmel Knödel with liver and veggies. I stayed safe with my favorite Pork Medallions and Potatoes!
                


Driving direct to Tuscany would have been a ten-hour drive. So I made plans to stay two days in a super cool Airbnb in Velden directly on the Wörthersee. It is in Austria just before leaving the alps and entering Italy. We were so excited but upon arriving it was like a ghost town! Apparently, this place is hopping in the summer and closes up tight as a drum in the winter and spring.  The only “restaurants” open were pizza, kebab, and fast food. Finding a restaurant that served local cuisine was a challenge and included driving to them directly to verify they were open offseason.

After driving around to several we located Landhaus Kutsche on the top of the hill overlooking the sea. They were only open during the offseason 4 days a week and we happen to hit one of those YUMMY days.

We so enjoyed our meals in this cool restaurant. I love veal and had their schnitzel unbreaded with vegetables and a little side of potatoes. Once again Lutz delved into a delicious traditional meal of boiled beef and horseradish veggie puree. AND of course, we had to sample the Bavarian dessert, Kaiserschmarren, and fresh Plum Compote. It’s made from pieces of pancake fried and then covered in powder sugar! YES YUM!

Our drive to Tonda Tuscany took six hours and upon arriving I decided to whip up my delicious One Pot Pasta with bacon and gluten-free noodles. Breakfast was always easy since we had a kitchen in our apartment. I stayed with my gluten-free bread, egg and some kind of fresh fruit. Of course, we had to try Truffle Bruchette and Tomato Bruchette! I immediately went to work to create a legal serving of each. Recipe to come in the near future!

We enjoyed a delicious meal at the resort restaurant for my birthday and what an amazing spread. Of course, we tried their Panna Cotta! My Dairy Free Cardamon Panna Cotta with Berry Compote was much better and legal! Lutz took the Steak with truffle sauces and I had gluten free pasta with tuna and eggplant loaded with spinach. Oh yeah, and parmesan cheese…just a touch.

During the whole trip to Italy that weighed heavy on my list of “street eats” was to find a gluten-free pizza and TADA! The resort had a Wednesday night pizza spread in their outdoor woodburning oven which included gluten-free pizza! It was amazing and I bought an extra one for my breakfast and lunch the next day! Lutz loves his sardines and I went for the “everything” pizza.

One evening in the restaurant at our resort they offered a four-course truffle meal! Right up our alley but mercy me $$$$$ so I enjoyed a delicious salad with grilled vegetables while lutz indulged in this scrumptious meal of truffles.

First came the appetizer of truffle cheese, truffle salami and a quail egg on toast with truffle slices. Then arrived truffle risotto followed by the main course, beef in truffle sauce. His fourth course was a generous slice of one of the local desserts!

On our way home to Germany my palate was reintroduced to the distinct tastes and flavors that so represent this beautiful country and culture. We stayed with friends in Freiberg for one night. I was served the tastest German meal by Gabby. She paid attention to every detail for me. What an excellent host and we even invited ourselves! She served us a lovely plate of homemade goulash, with boiled potatoes and a side of fresh seasoned carrots and peas. Plus homemade stewed apples.

For dessert, I enjoyed a bite and the whole time I savored it I was thinking of ways to transform it. I have a plan! It will consist of gluten free Cantucci (hopefully homemade), frozen cherries, coconut whipped cream, coconut yogurt, and a bit of honey. I am on it folks so check back soon! Actually, I can’t wait to get cook’n!

Keep your eyes peeled for “transformed” recipes and more on my site during the next few months. I only send my newsletter out once a month but am posting new recipes weekly so be sure to take a peek now and then to see what I’ve posted. Maybe one of these “transformed street eats” will be perfect for your palate. 

Heading Out again!
Now to start packing for our next adventure. We’ll be heading to our boat, Virus, the first of May until September. We’re planning to motor our way to Friesland in the Netherlands. Should be a nice trip and so looking forward to having our dear friends, Jennifer and Steve Goodbody joining us for a week.

March 2019: The Cook’n Coach Hits the Streets for Some Good Eats!

OK, well I haven’t quite stopped cooking altogether it’s just that I’m back and we’ve been on the go ever since we’ve returned from the USA. April we’re taking off for a month long road trip. How to eat “sweet” (clean, not sugar) on the streets while traveling in Europe is my new move!

We got home from one rainy country to another safe and sound but then we were off again! It seems like the months of March and April I won’t be doing much cooking. If I do get the chance to cook at home then it will definitely be something from my website. Maybe one of my yummy soups or one of my super grill dinners. At least I know what I’m eating!

I’ve decided that March and April’s posts will be pictures of legal (ok, legal-ish) foods I eat while traveling. I know many of my subscribers travel a bit and this might help when ordering or locating good restaurants. Plus I’ll make sure to share the name of the restaurant and address so if you’re in the area you can stop by!

So let’s begin!
Coming home was wonderful but not to an empty cupboard! Of course, the closest place to find fresh healthy food was our favorite Vietnam place, Saigon Bistro located at Eisenbahnstraße 68A, 67655 Kaiserslautern. I failed to bring my camera but here’s what I ate! Yes, I did eat rice but next time I’ll ask for more veggies. At home, I make my own Tapioca Spring Rolls and  Tom Kha Gai with cauliflower rice. They have changed hands so…was a little different from the original owners.

     

Bright and early Saturday morning we were off to the open market for some fresh goodies. Our favorite organic veggie farmer was there as well as our favorite meat stand Doug’s Farm. I got my fresh chicken for an Italian crockpot dish I’ll post later. And stopped at the Asian store from some coconut cream milk! You never know when you’ll need it. Then Off we went to the Black Forest to check out the Fastnacht events in Wolfach.  If you’ve never been to the Black Forest to share this wonderful century-old tradition in chasing the winter away you have got to go one day. It is so full of culture, history and amazing craftsmanship of masks carved from wood. Truly a must see! The parade of Kaffee Tante (Coffee Aunts) was led by a band of drumming chef’s as they hurried for mid-day coffee. 

While in Wolfach we spent one evening at our favorite restaurant, The Hotel zum Hecht located at Hauptstraße 51, 77709. This unique treasure has been here and in the same family for generations. Lutz’s father frequented this quaint restaurant as a young man and throughout his life. The chef is AMAZING and I strongly recommend reservations. The lighting was low so the pictures do not do justice but the taste, flavors, and presentation are top notch. 

We started with a Cream Lemon Chili Ginger Soup with Fowl.

This was followed by Asparagus Risotto with Fresh Grilled Fish & Shrimp.

Then arrived a Lemon Sorbet with Mint & Vodka.

The main meal was Roasted Local Veal, Pea Puree, Brussel Sprout and Creamed Potatoes, Red Onion Chutney.

Ending with an amazing dessert of Chocolate and Vanilla Panna Cotta/Mousse, Cream Catalan and Orange Salad.

So need I say more? This meal was amazing and at least I avoided gluten…as far as dairy, well don’t get the creamed potatoes or the desserts!

We made a day trip to visit Elli, Lutz’s late cousin’s wife in Bigen. We headed out for a mid-day lunch at one of Elli’s favorite spots, the Zum geschwollenen Herz (The swollen heart). It’s located at: Vorstadt 21 55411 Bingen am Rhein Germany. They do have a website in German and English with amazing prices.

This little local place has been around for centuries. It feels so strange to be eating in an establishment like this. I always wonder who sat in my seat hundreds of years ago? Apparently, it was the local pub where the tanker and ship captains would come to tell their stories. I suggest reservations. The place was packed by 1 pm. My meal was a no brainer and one I LOVE any time and any day. Feldsalad (field salad) with beef stips and potato bacon dressing! Lutz was quick to decide for the deer meat special with potato dumplings or what we call knoedels. Not only was this delicious but the prices were so great for such a large meal! They have daily specials as well.

Oh, let’s go back to the Panna Cotta…
My impressive dinner experience at the Hecht gave me inspiration! I now realized what my purchase of cream of coconut milk was going to become! I could make my own version of Panna Cotta, why not?  So back to the house we came and for a few days, I was off the “streets making my own eats”! This is by far the simplest and most elegant dessert I’ve ever made. It is luscious, creamy with a hint of vanilla bean and a mist of cardamon that invades the last bite as it accents the coconut cream. Top this crazy easy recipe with some berry fruit compote or my Medieval Raspberry Compote and you’ve got a 5-star dessert! Click here or on the picture to get my version of Dairy Free Cardamon Panna Cotta with Berry Compote!

While in the USA lot’s of folks asked me why “I” didn’t eat soy products. I know many folks out there eat it including the vegetarian and vegan communities and have no problems. But I thought that as well until…click here to see what I found out!

Goodbye for now…
I hope you enjoyed this little food tour and are looking forward to my April post as well. It should be filled with locations, pictures, and yummy food. We will be off to Munich, Vienna and then Italy. For the whole month of April, I will have to dodge gluten, soy, and dairy while eating on the streets… it should be interesting. Of course, I’ll pack my stand-by goodies and do some research on local foods and “safe” places to eat. One eating establishment I will visit again in Vienna is the Italian restaurant located around the corner from our hotel. They have gluten free pizza…the best (oops, there goes the dairy)! Until next month, keep on creating every day by cooking something new! Follow me with #streeteats!

February 2019 Cook’n and Camp’n

Things are blooming here! Still hanging out with Johnny and Cash. For those of you new to this site, Johnny is our dependable Chevy Truck and Cash is our RV, well need I say more…CASH! We’ve made it through the holidays and as soon as the grandkids went back to school we headed to our happy place, Borrego Springs.

I believe this is where I left off and will pick it up from there. But first, a little “food for thought”…I love this statement, “food for thought”, but started thinking about what that really means…I found this definition in the Cambridge English Dictionary: “Something worth seriously thinking about or considered.” So here is my food for thought, If the stomach is considered our second brain, am I spending more time nourishing my belly than I am nourishing my brain?

Cute joke but all too true sometimes. It seems like I get myself in such a rut. I tend to walk through life on autopilot or I use an app without thought. So in order to support my last month’s food for thought, “to create unforgettable moments to improve my memory”, I’ve set about doing just that. I’ve been making a concerted effort to feed my brain as well as my stomach.

I’ve also discovered that the only way I usually feed my brain or add new software to my brain is when I am in a situation I’ve never encountered. Therefore, I’m making more mindful choices that place me in new situations. This is why I so respect my alert mom. She has a list of memorable moments…trust me. We tease her constantly and tell her to “put it in your book mom”. She’s “been around the cup and found the handle” as she would say. Still alert, active physically, takes care of her nutrition, health and she is mentally sharp.

My 88-year-old mom has a saying “getting old is only for the tough”. I’m experiencing the truth of this saying on a daily basis. It was great to have her for a whole week. We celebrated her camping spirit by giving her a cane that has it all; an info tag if she gets lost, coin purse, pill box, a horn, and caution card. She’s a great sport!

Here’s what I’m talking about. Both Lutz and I are making ourselves stay in bed until 8 am most days. Ok, well more like 9:30 (teachers don’t try this). During this time we’re meditating, reading challenging books and articles, doing word games (I’m the worst speller in the world ask any of my students), talking to each other about different subjects and desires never shared. PLUS I’m really learning German with the Babble app. It’s pinching my brain!

Another new thing I’ve done to make unforgettable memories and “feed my brain” is to meet new people. I tend to do just fine during the day alone or with Lutz but this trip we’ve stepped out and met new friends and faces. We’ve had them for dinner, gone out for dinner, or played a round of golf with them. I’m challenging myself to have more meaningful conversations with new friends by finding 5 interesting things about each one, remembering their answers and remembering their names!

 

The result has been pretty interesting. We’ve also made a commitment to MOVE each day. So we hike, walk, ride, attend water aerobics (even if Lutz is the only guy in the class) or work out in the gym.

Ok, well over the four day weekend it was a little different, we got to share our slow wake up with my grandkids and played word games with them each morning!

Having my mom and my daughter, Jericho, Albert, Ruby, and Eva join us over the holiday was so great.  We got to watch the Lunar Eclipse together! There were so many telescopes out here during this amazing event! Its a weekend I won’t forget!

Plus we got to hike new trails and see the beauty of the desert together.

This Month’s Recipes:

Here are two DELICIOUS recipes I’d like to share with you. Hope you find time to cook them both. They are crowd pleasers together with your favorite protein or meatless nights. These easy Crispy Smashed Potatoes are the BOMB and so easy. You can make them ahead as well and just heat them up under the broiler!

I know there are a million recipes for Brussel Sprouts but this one gets the prize. Seriously, the tang of the mustard and the crunch of the bacon…ooh-la-la! It’s a party in the mouth for sure!

Enjoy and more to come next month as we wrap up our stay on Coronado Island and head for home!

 

 

January 2019 Cook’n and Camp’n

 

Ok, I know the “New Year” has already begun but my goal is to improve my memory all year and being more focused by doing unforgettable things. What do you think of that! I’ll start it off by cooking unforgettable meals that will be photographed so the photos can help me recall what I cooked.

Seriously I think we should take this to a new level. Not just cooking but think about your job, or the daily events with family. How can you make each more unforgettable? Put a change in your morning routine, meditate before work, put a note in your child’s lunchpail or leave a sexy message on your partner’s phone. Hey, you don’t like to wear pink…try it out one day!

It’s pretty easy to get in a routine and just stay in it. It’s comfy and dependable. The problem with that is you tend to use less of your brain. I’d suggest doing something that makes you step outside your comfort zone this year. I’m doing it and lordy lordy it is a challenge. I have a daughter and a son that are into social media and both have encouraged me to step this thing up! Ok so…I am. I’m working on some upgrades to my site and with their support will transform my site and myself! You better keep your eyes peeled!

In the meantime, I wanted to let you know where we are and what’s been cook’n.

We arrived in October and settled into our favorite campground near my daughter and family.                                                          I got to see my granddaughters often.  December was a hectic month, shopping, birthdays, Christmas and moving Johnny (our truck) and Cash (our RV) from place to place. We were able to spend Thanksgiving with family in Borrego and take on some pretty cool hikes.      

Between Thanksgiving and Christmas, we headed to Kauai for ten days. My BFF, Jennifer, from ninth grade and her husband, Steve were there visiting their son and family. It was amazing and such a great island. Great weather for us as well.

  We spent as much time as we could with my family during the holidays and my son was able to make it down from Washington State which made it a very special time for me and my mom.

After Christmas, we took off with my daughter and her family to El Capitan near Santa Barbar to celebrate Ruby’s birthday and to enjoy New Years together. It was a great trip! We visited the Santa Barbara Zoo, an Ostrich Farm and even paid a visit to a Llama Farm. Great weather and wonderful company!

Now we’re back in our “Happy Place”, Borrego Springs and just loving it. So peaceful, quiet and just a different kind of beauty all it’s own!

Our days are filled with hiking, yoga, water aerobics and of course cooking! Here are a couple of super recipes for all you who are experiencing snow and cold!

Amy’s Orange Cinnamon Buns. These little treats are just delicious the aroma will fill your entire house. They’re made with fresh oranges and just the right sweetness. They are delicious on cold and snowy days…or anytime actually! The best part about this recipe is that you can leave out the extra sugar and spices and make the best hamburger buns with this dough.

There’s nothing like a warm slice of bread to go with your homemade soup. I’ve messed with several recipes but tend to use my bread machine and don’t feel too confident with baking my bread in the oven. It’s hard to get gluten-free bread to rise but this Oven Baked Grain Free Century Bread was a no brainer and came out just as good. It is one bread recipe that I can make on the boat or in my RV and comes out great. I hope you try it!
