Upper Feelings in Lower Sequoia

Hi All, Lindsey here. I’m stepping in for Mom (Gourmet Girl Denise) with this week’s blog post while she gets settled into her house in the Loire Valley. Bon chance avec votre déménagement! It was 10am on the Friday before a holiday weekend when my good friend Maryann (see her awesome Bloody Maryann recipe in […]

Jalama Beach, California

Dear Friends and Fellow Campers, My latest news is that I’m taking up RVing in my recently purchased Roadtrek 190 Versatile! My maiden voyage was to Jalama Beach, about an hour and a half north of Santa Barbara. Its rather remote location makes it an ideal place for campers, surfers, and at certain times of […]

Summer fun has officially begun, and the Gourmet Girls trust you have some wonderful plans this season! I’ve written about Sisters on the Fly before.

Mythic Marfa

How to Cook

Hello, friends and campers! Gourmet Girl Denise here! As most of you know by now I have moved to France, which I feel has always been the centre of some of the best cuisine ever known.

2018 Camping Bucket List

Greetings Everyone! Gourmet Girl Gail here. We’re finally getting back to a bit of normalcy after the fires and mudslides in the Santa Barbara area. Although I and most of the people I know weren’t physically affected, I think psychically it has taken its toll. It was hard to wrap our minds around the idea […]
