4 Great Resources to Help You Simplify your Kitchen

Fuchsia Ad 1Back in July when my new book came out, I looked around and thought to myself… “I’m not done.”  Sure, I have other books in the Tiny House Foodie series that I haven’t written yet, so that’s still on my list.  But more than that… I want to create great resources for people who are going tiny, and I’m not finished talking about my favorite part of the home – the kitchen.  Some folks will prefer to learn from a book, others will prefer a video series… and still others will prefer a podcast that they can listen to on their commute.  So I decided to keep going and make more great resources to help you simplify your kitchen.  These are helpful for anyone who is making the transition to a simple life in a smaller space – or anyone who wants to live more comfortably in the space you already enjoy.

In the last few months I’ve created three great workshops in addition to my book and you can find them by hovering over the “Shop” tab, and then choosing “Courses” from the tab above.  I created these classes over at Teachable.com and I really like the set up over there.  While putting together all the information for a class isn’t an easy task, I think it’s really worth it because it makes it so simple for you.  All that info is in one place in a multi-media workshop where part of it is in video, part of it is text, and if I want to throw in a chart, or recipe, or a PDF sheet with reference information for you to download – I can do that.  It really is a one-stop-shop!  I think these workshops are a great resource and I’m really happy to make them available to you!

So here are my three new workshops: thumbnail workshop

Here’s more info on my brand new:

Introducing a brand new resource to help you manage smells in your tiny house.  By that I mean get rid of them – not cover them up with a chemical smell – because we both know that doesn’t work!  This information will change everything for folks who have been haunted by disgusting smells in their tiny homes!  I’m absolutely convinced that this class will help you breathe easy in your tiny home!


Fuchsia Ad 2And don’t forget Kitchen Simplicity where I packed lots of great information!  It’s partly practical and partly the philosophical things I learned when we closed our 3,000 sq ft restaurant and went tiny in 125 sq ft. in the fall of 2014.  The idea of purposeful simplicity is at the heart of this little book, and it makes ALL THE DIFFERENCE in how it feels to live tiny!  I know this one little idea is worth the price of the book, but that’s not all I packed in there.  lol! I pass along the keys to making tiny house living a joy!

The kindle book is regularly $4.99 but Amazon has it for $2.99 right now and I don’t know how long that will last so pop over there and snag a copy before that price goes away!  And if you’re like me and like the feel of having a book in your hands… here’s the paperback.

Thanks so much for dropping by my website today, I really appreciate it!  And remember, we can go tiny, embrace simplicity, and still eat really well!

The Tiny House Foodie visits The Queen Mary

 

The Austrian and I had a lovely time on board the RMS Queen Mary for a foodie fiction event featuring a novel by Patricia V. Davis and a recipe I created called Shrimp Rohini that was inspired by Patricia’s novel.  Todd Henderson, Executive Chef of the RMS Queen Mary, created my recipe for the crowd along with another recipe from sailing days of the Queen Mary.  I enjoyed meeting so many amazing people on the ship and made a lot of new friends.  It was a spectacular event and we enjoyed our travels from here in Virginia to Baltimore out to LA, then down to Long Beach where the QM is docked.  We loved everything about our stateroom and our time aboard this remarkable vessel.  We continued down the coast to San Diego and enjoyed the sand and surf before our flight home.  It was a remarkable trip, one I’d do again in a heartbeat.  The highlight for me was meeting Patricia in person as we’ve been online friends for years.

I’m going to meet the Queen!

Years ago I sailed right past the RMS Queen Mary and thought how fun it would be to get to go aboard and explore.  That little dream from long ago is coming true this month!  I’m going to meet the QUEEN!  The RMS Queen Mary that is.  I’m totally stoked!

I got to know Patricia V. Davis years back on a blog platform and we became long distance friends.  When her latest book Cooking for Ghosts came out, I was so excited to read it.  It’s not every day that you get to read a book written by a good friend and I knew her work well enough to know that it would be an excellent book, and guess what?  It did not disappoint!

Patricia wrote this book with mouth-watering references to delicious food in the (fictional) Secret Spice Cafe and one dish in particular really stood out.  I gave it some thought and did some experimenting and eventually created a recipe for this fictional dish “Shrimp Rohini” and shared it with Patricia.

Fast forward to July, 2017 and I’ll be leaving the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia and hoping a flight to Long Beach, California where I will meet Patricia and a number of our mutual friends on the Queen Mary, where the novel is set.  PLUS, the official Chef of the Queen Mary will be creating my recipe for Shrimp Rohini in front of the audience, and we’ll all get to taste it.  PLUS (as if that weren’t enough) Chef will also create one of the dishes from the early days when the RMS Queen Mary was sailing the high seas.  It’s going to be so much fun and I’m ridiculously excited about the whole thing.

Several of our mutual friends will be along for the event as well, so I know it’s going to be an amazing adventure.  I plan to be tweeting along the way, so be sure to look me up on Twitter as Chef Carmen @tinyhousefoodie for all the details.  Our event is part of the Queen Mary Salon Series and if you are in the neighborhood, please drop by and introduce yourself.  Our first 25 quests will get a free copy of the book!  How cool is that?!  Details here.Shrimp Rohini Event Brightened
