RV Road Recipes
Here’s a classic you might think you can’t make without an oven — or without resigning yourself to a box or frozen, microwavable fare. Not so, friends. This scrumptious recipe comes chock full of fresh bell peppers and savory sausage, and it’s all done in one pan right on top of your stove. See the recipe here for this delicious Mac and Cheese. You can also modify it to be a simpler Mac and cheese dish by omitting the peppers and sausages if your kids wouldn’t like them.
Camping somewhere with awesome freshwater fishing opportunities? Take advantage of last night’s catch and grill up this savory lunch. It’s easy, delicious, and a great way to infuse your day with a healthy dose of protein — all the better to power your outdoor adventures!

This classic cook-out recipe is leveled up a bit with the addition of black beans and Italian parsley. Serve it on a favorite bun or flat bread, or just lay it out on some large lettuce leaves for a Keto-friendly meal everyone will love. See the Hot Dogs with sauerkraut and black beans recipe here.
This is a delicious one-skillet curry that’s ready very quickly. This is a super keto-friendly dinner with just enough kick to be interesting. I add a lot of curry powder to mine. I also add extra spinach leaves at the end of cooking so it is a very balanced meal with plenty of vitamins and minerals. Find the Chicken Coconut Curry recipe here.
This is so good your grandmother would be proud. You can make it in one cast iron skillet and use different apples too if Granny Smith’s aren’t available. Remember if you use a sweeter apple to cut down on the brown and white sugar you add. I also add a hint of cardamom and plenty of cinnamon-Ceylon cinnamon is my favorite, for a nice holiday spice flavor at this time of year. If you are trying to cut out sugar or at least cut down on it, you can use Swerve or Stevia or erythritol in place of the sugar. They even make a brown sugar Swerve variety as well. Find the One pan scrumptious apple pie here.
Low Carb, Keto, or Low-sugar? Check out these
And if you are trying to find some other low carb, keto, or low-sugar variations on desserts, here are a few other suggestions, since the Apple Pie above made with sugar contains 717 calories and a ton of carbs.
Oh so delicious! When you don’t know what to do with a can of plain pureed pumpkin in your pantry, this is a real treat! It is easy, no-bake and sugar-free; a pumpkin and low carb lovers dream! It is gluten free, keto and made with only 6 ingredients. For the full recipe and ingredients list, click on the link above.
This one is so easy and so satisfying, especially with a dollop of whipped cream. It is only 161 calories per serving compared to the 717 of Granny Smith’s apple pie above. It has about 12 grams of carbs but nearly 5 of those are fiber so net carb count is a respectable 3.7 grams. Again click on the link to read the full recipe.
And here is the simplest no sugar added pumpkin pie you will ever find. You may need to make your own almond and coconut flour crust first but you can find many keto pie crust recipes, before following this simple recipe for the pie filling. Note to Keto dieters, this recipe calls for evaporated milk. I would substitute heavy cream or the Nestlé’s Crema as evaporated milk contains 13 grams of carbs. Heavy cream contains 0.5 grams so much better for your keto diet.
