Hi! My name is Rebecca. Thanks for stopping by!
I’m a recipe developer, food photographer, writer, and full time RV nomad.
In April of 2020 my husband Steve and I traded our house for a 43-foot 5th wheel and life as digital nomads.
This is actually my second blog. My first food blog, which started as a hobby on nights and weekends while I worked as a freelance marketing consultant, launched in November of 2013. You’ll find it at ofbatteranddough.com and it's focused entirely on baking.
Over the years, my love of cooking and baking turned into a full-time career. I've cooked and baked professionally in a variety of environments, but my real loves are travel, recipe development, and writing.
A Little and A Lot is a Recipe and Travel Website with hundreds of well-tested recipes for any size kitchen + content about full-time travel and RV living.
In this space, I share fresh, flavorful recipes that we love to eat in our real lives, prepared in our tiny 42 square-foot kitchen.
My goal is to inspire you with recipes that are both delicious and approachable no matter where you live and how big and well-equipped your kitchen is.
Every recipe you'll find here has been tested and tweaked, and tested and tweaked, until I'm certain it will work well for most people in most kitchens.
On a related note, one of my favorite things about publishing recipes online is that they can be further refined from reader feedback. Many of the recipes here include suggestions, tips, and tricks from other home cooks who have generously left comments about what worked and didn't work in their kitchens.
Full Time Travel and RV Life
In addition to recipes, Steve and I use this space to talk about our life as digital nomads.
In April of 2020, we sold our house and moved into a 5th wheel toy hauler RV. Our youngest was heading off to college and we suspected that full-time travel would suit us just fine. We weren't wrong. So far we love most everything about living in a home on wheels.
As we continue to learn the ropes of RV life and full time travel, our goal is to share as much useful and interesting information as possible. Such as...
- An ever growing number of camping recipes, and recipes specifially designed for tiny kitchens and small spaces.
- Let's Get Lost, A Monthly Travel Journal about the places we've been, recommendations for things to do and see in those areas, and the reality of RV living and full-time travel. We also share recipes for what we're cooking, products we love and can't live without, RV projects we are working on, what we're reading and listening to, and stories about interesting people we meet along the way.
- Our yearly travel itinerary.

Over the years, I’ve partnered with a variety of brands that I know and love to create recipes, content, and photographs that showcase their products.
