One of the features we love most about our beautiful boutique hotel is the chef-inspired kitchen that forms the heart of your home-away-from-home. We want you to make the most of it! Of course, we do understand that fitting in a cooking session at the end of a long day of travel might not be your idea of a good time, but we want to make it easy for you to enjoy this unique and luxurious feature that we have included for you here.

It’s also important to note that making your own meals is almost always a healthier choice. That’s even more essential for those who travel often. With that in mind, we have put together a list of our favorite idea for cooking away from home.

Ideas for Cooking Away from Home

When it comes to cooking away from home, the idea is to keep things as simple as possible. You may be travel-weary and probably won’t want to spend much time preparing the meal. So, try to plan meals that feature simple ingredients that can be enjoyed in a variety of ways. Anything that can be enjoyed without cooking is a good choice (like a salad or your favorite spread with crackers). For creative meals beyond those basics, here are a few ideas:

Quick Pasta and Steamed Veggies

Steamed vegetables and pasta are not only the perfect pairing, but they are also very quick and easy to prepare. Common favorites include broccoli and carrots, summer squash with zucchini and tomatoes, and steamed spinach with a sprinkling of feta cheese. Combine any of those vegetable blends with rotini, penne, or the pasta of your choice. Quick, delicious, and super satisfying!

A Quesadilla with Your Favorite Healthy Fillings

Quesadillas have become an American go-to for people who need something quick and satisfying. Filling ideas include black beans with corn, a fajita blend of peppers and onions, and steamed spinach with mushrooms. For the healthiest meal possible, choose a whole grain or gluten-free tortilla, and opt for organic “certified humane” cheeses.

Enjoy Breakfast for Dinner

Eggs are not only incredibly good for you, but they are also very quick, versatile, and super filling! If you have a dozen eggs on hand, the possibilities for a quick healthy dinner are endless. A few ideas include a southwest veggie frittata, eggs benedict, and these creative omelet-stuffed peppers.

Whatever your personal tastes may be, we hope you will take advantage of our beautiful kitchen. We truly want you to feel right at home with us here at Kinn Guesthouse, and providing a space for you to prepare meals together with your group is just one of the ways we hope to accomplish that.
