Hello Mates!

We are one month closer to dazzling our envious guest with stunning dishes we've whipped up in our galleys. The pure pleasure of knowing they will be marveling at our expertise of serving up gourmet dishes that we made onboard is just too much fun! One of the best compliments I can hear is: "This is delicious! You made this on your boat?!" I love cooking and entertaining at our boat; and the more special I can make a guest feel with a gourmet dish, the more I enjoy making it. My love language is cooking great food for friends and family on board.

With this as our spring board, I'm looking forward to launching our 2011 boating season jam-packed with super dishes that will look and taste like you had it catered, but was as easy of setting out a paper plate of sliced cheese and crackers! As we start dusting, wiping down and stocking our galleys for our launch date, I'll challenge you to start thinking now about an extra special guest you can pencil into your boating itinerary to invite for a special day of boating, fellowship, great eats and a spectacular Great Lake sunset! No richer boating reward have I experienced than spending a day on the boat with a guest that has never had the privilege of boating. The only word that comes to mind is transforming.They show up a guest, in awe of the water and the boat; they leave a life-long friend ever grateful of the day they feel in love with the lake.

You set the date, I'll deliver the dish! Rich Blessings & Delicious Dishes to you!
