Hotel Room Food Made Easy: Whether you're traveling for work or pleasure, being away from home can be a challenge for anyone - especially when you think about food and how you and your kids are going to eat. Luckily for us, Sara Kate Gillingham-Ryan, lifestyle expert, founding editor of Apartment Therapy's culinary arts site, TheKitchn.com and author of Good Food to Share, has shared some tips with us on delicious meal options when you stay at home-style hotels like the Hyatt House.
These facilities offer travelers rooms with real kitchens, laundry and other services. Did you know you can save $100 by making simple meals right in your hotel room? Here are some fun hotel room foods made easy:
White Lasagna with Mushrooms and Prosciutto:
This hearty lasagna has all the comforts of home, with earthy mushrooms and bits of salty ham help this silky baked pasta dish burst of flavor.
Herbed Lemon Butter Popcorn:
When you're on the road it's easy to reach for the pre-seasoned microwave popcorn, but if you have a kitchen, try something more special. Here, thyme leaves, maple syrup, lemon and salt can take care of all your cravings.
Whipped Hot Chocolate:
A cup of hot cocoa is a comforting and whimsical end to a meal. When on the road, this dessert is much more simple than something baked, and still provides the feeling of homemade goodness.
A big crush of watermelon in the mix is not traditional, but in the summer when watermelons are crimson and bursting with flavor, it takes this potent cocktail over the top. This drink goes down easy, so if it's your first time, proceed with caution.
