Chicken Skillet Dinner

I’m really into easy dinners. Very few of my dinners are really complicated, and if they are, they’re really good. Sometimes, I just need a quick dinner without much fuss. But every once in awhile, I make a no fuss dinner which tastes as good as a complicated meal. This is one of those unicorn recipes.

Best Chocolate Cake, Vegan Version too!

This dense yet fluffy, dark chocolate cake ticks all the boxes of a cake with purpose, not just a  carrier for sweet sweet frosting or a companion to ice cream. This cake can be the whole show, icing or not. It has a deep chocolate taste enhanced by coffee. Seriously, stop what you’re doing and make it.

What We Learned on Land This Winter

There’s been a lot of learning and thinking being done this winter as we’ve reassessed our lives, living spaces, finances, and general goals in life. It’s easy to throw around the words “we should have” but it was inevitable that, come this point in the winter, we would have a few things figured out that we should have figured out earlier. That’s just how things work…knowledge! You simply don’t know what you don’t know.

Garlic Hummus

Hummus is one of those things that is a great addition to any boat party and is handy to have around if unexpected guests arrive. Bring homemade hummus to a boat friend and they’ll love you forever!

Sparkling Water on a Boat

This post is in conjunction with a YouTube video tutorial. Sparkling water, fizzy water, bubbly water, charged water; whatever you call it, it's a necessary thing for us on our boat. For us, having loads of cans or bottles of sparkling water on board just does not make sense. The life cycle of us buying it from the store, hauling it back to the boat, storing it before we drink it, storing the waste it creates, and hauling that waste to shore does nothing for our efficiency. 

Equipment We Love (and use)

We’re all about the right tool for the job, and so we’ve compiled a list of items that are some of our favorite things onboard Twig. Of course this is an incomplete list, and we’ll be adding to it, but it’s a great start of things to keep you comfortable and safe onboard. Most things can be purchased on our company site: Twig Marine.
