Stuffed Guinea Pigs

To Eat Guinea Pig or Not To Eat Guinea Pig?

When I travel I like to get brave and try customary food/drinks.  I started out my trip in Peru with something easy…a Pisco Sour.  Pisco is a local spirit made from grapes.  I didn’t try a shot of it, so I’m not sure what’s it’s individual taste is, but a Pisco Sour includes Pisco, Bitters, […]

My Belizean Stewed Chicken

My Modernized Belizean Stewed Chicken with Rice and Beans

A while back I wrote about my goal of finding the best stewed chicken with rice in beans while visiting Belize.  I didn’t just want to eat the best there; I wanted to know how to make it at home.  I included some very cryptic recipe notes that I got from Tosh (our driver from […]

Me and the Chocoloate Fall at Alaska Wild Berry Products

Alaska Wild Berry Products

I’m revisiting this photo from a few years ago at Alaska Wild Berry Products in honor of #FriFotos on Twitter.  This week’s theme is ‘chocolate’ and Alaska Wild Berry Products is the perfect subject for such a theme.

Tasty and Interesting Foods I Ate in Belize

I never intended for my blog to be about food, but as I’ve said before I love food.

Lobster Nachos at Sobre Las Ola's

Lobster, Lobster, Every Where

Four Things I Love About Belize

It probably doesn’t come as a surprise that I’ve really enjoyed my two trips to Belize and there are some really clear reasons why.  Here are four of them.  I’m sure the minute I hit ‘Publish’ on this post I’ll think of several more reasons. The People You can hardly identify who the locals are […]

Belizean Favorites: Rum Punch and Shrimp Ceviche

It wasn’t until a bit over a year ago that I tried both of these for the first time.  It was a snorkeling trip with Raggamuffin Tours on Caye Caulker that introduced me to them.  Raggamuffin didn’t let me down this past week.  We snorkeled Coral Gardens, Shark/Ray Alley, and Hol Chan with them on […]

Stewed Chicken with Rice and Beans in Belize

One of my missions for this trip to Belize was to enjoy more traditional food.  I started with the most logical option…finding the best Belizean Stewed Chicken with Rice and Beans.  In the first week of my stay in Belize I probably ate WAY MORE Stewed Chicken with Rice and Beans than any human should, […]
