Is there anything more adorable than a tiny kitchen? When you have an RV, the kitchen is viewable from everywhere in the rig. This means it truly is the center of your tiny home! When we started our kitchen remodel I was so excited to think about tile and counter combinations. I knew I wanted a beautiful space! However, equally as important to the look of an RV kitchen is its functionality.
After trial and error we decided to convert the propane appliances in our kitchen to electric. This means when we are hooked up to shore power we spend no extra money to cook! If you are in a stationary RV or camp with full hookups, you may want to ditch the propane tanks! Here's how we did it.
5 Coffee bar must haves
It's Sunday, which means... Sunday Coffee! It's no secret my Sunday morning coffee ritual is my favorite. I started a "Sunday Coffee Series" to talk coffee each week with you. Today I'm going to talk about 5 Coffee Bar Must Haves (except for coffee, we know that's a given)! If you don't have a designated coffee bar you could certainly create an area in your kitchen dedicated to your morning beverage. So pour a cup and join me for some java. Here we go...
My house is not a "sparkly" house. Most things are cozy and frankly a little worn down. However I like my dining room to have a little shine and pizzazz. I'm always looking for new candle holders to add to my tablescape, unfortunately that can add up quick. I've been fooling around with some DIY wedding decor and stumbled across ways to combine glass vases and candlesticks from the Dollar Tree. This super easy DIY yields awesome results and the combinations are endless.
I think a perfectly brewed cup of coffee is one of life's great luxuries. Close your eyes, inhale, let the warm steam wash over you. Sip. Taste. Be in the moment, completely relaxed. The world moves a little slower, and nothing seems so bad as it did a minute ago. My favorite Sunday morning ritual is to make myself a fresh cup of coffee and just sit in my dining room soaking in the morning sun. I put some jazz on, and just relax and simply be. No work, no thinking about the "to do" list. Just myself and a beverage as old as time. It's heavenly.
Since this little ritual is something I look forward to each week, I thought I would start a new series on the blog called "Sunday Coffee." Each week I'll cover some kind of coffee related topic. If you've been around here for a while you know that I am obsessed with my Nespresso, but on Sundays or when I'm at my beach "house" I use my french press. I love the coffee it makes, and I don't even mind that it takes just a little bit more time and effort. However, I learned recently that I was doing quite a few things wrong. I (like many), added my coffee, water, brewed, and plunged. There's more to it than that. I fixed these 5 mistakes that I was making with my french press and it dramatically changed the coffee. I thought if I was making these mistakes, you might be too. They are super easy fixes and really take no additional time. Happy Sunday my friends, may your coffee be strong and your work load be light! Read on for the five mistakes you're making with your french press.
