Cheesy Garlic and Herb Pull-Apart Bread

I have been in New York for the last couple of days. I flew here last Thursday to meet up with my father so that we can travel down to the Caribbean together. We’ll be going back to Virgin Gorda next week after a quick visit to a family friends’ house in Philadelphia. We are both so excited because this will be my father’s first time visiting us on Virgin Gorda.

San Miguel de Allende, Mexico

San Miguel de Allende, Guanajuato

The second leg of our vacation (after Santa Fe, New Mexico) of this past September, was San Miguel de Allende in Mexico. We enjoyed and liked Santa Fe a lot. However, we fell in love with San Miguel. It was a place full of color, music, beautiful and happy people, delicious food, and so much to see. I think it is safe to say, I came back to the island, but a part of me remained in San Miguel de Allende. … Read More...

Also, kids go back to school and they carry their germs back home to their parents. Long story short, for whatever reason, people get sick in autumn more … Read More...

Apple Pie Cookies

Apple Pie Cookies

This morning we woke up to the news that there is a tropical storm (Gonzalo) heading our way to the Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico, and will possibly turn into a hurricane towards the evening. As a result, it has been raining like crazy on Virgin Gorda, and even though it is still warm outside, with the doors tightly closed and air condition on, it feels like autumn around here. And for me, autumn means apple pie. I love it when the smell of butter, sugar, and crisp apples cooking together … Read More...

Slow Cooker Curried Chicken Breasts

Slow Cooker Curried Chicken Breasts

If you have ever worked in a hotel or know someone, who works in a leadership role in a hotel, you would know that the month of October is also known as the budget month. I guess, it is the budget month in most other business, but I can’t vouch for that because I have never worked for any other industry. As in most businesses, during this month, the leadership of the hotel gets together and goes over every line on their balance sheets and profit & loss statements, and try to predict next … Read More...

Santa Fe, New Mexico

Santa Fe, New Mexico

I knew nothing about Santa Fe prior to our visit back in September. I am so glad we made the trip, because this New Mexican small town has so much to offer for its visitors. Here are notes and photos from our visit: … Read More...
