The Family Motor Coach Association (FMCA), in partnership with Microwave Connection, has launched an online RV Recipe Drive to help feed the hungry.

Everyone who adds an acceptable RV-friendly recipe to’s Recipes for the Road ( now through March 1 will be entered in a drawing to win an On-the-Road Muffin/Cupcake Set (a $ 57.50 value) from Microwave Connection, according to a news release.

For each recipe added during this period, FMCA will donate one non-perishable food item to a local food bank in the Cincinnati area.

“The RV Recipe Drive is not only a perfect opportunity to share recipes with other RVers, but a chance to feed some of the millions of Americans who go to bed hungry,” said Janet Sadlack, owner of Microwave Connection, an online resource on microwave and microwave-convection cooking.

FMCA and the motorhoming community are known for their eagerness to lend a helping hand, said Judy Czarsty, FMCA national senior vice president/acting national president. “The RV Recipe Drive is a great way to share a favorite recipe – an old family favorite, a new one that you created, or perhaps one from a friend – and feed the hungry at the same time.”

FMCA encourages participants to submit recipes of all sorts, including main courses, side dishes, soups, salads, appetizers and desserts.

“Silicone cookware is great for traveling because it is lightweight, stacks easily and is flexible for storage,” Sadlack said. “It’s also non-breakable, rattle proof and can withstand temperatures of microwave, convection and combination cooking.”

The Teflon baking sheet supports the regular-size muffin cups on a rack and also doubles as a cookie and baking sheet. It can be rolled up and inserted into an empty paper towel tube for storage.

Sadlack travels the country presenting microwave-convection cooking seminars at FMCA conventions and other RV shows. She offers advice, videos and recipes on her website, “Many RVers love to cook in their RV, and they enjoy trying new recipes,” she said. “I look forward to seeing some of them on”
