Largest Dude Ranch East of the Mississippi!

We took our new travel trailer on her first weekend trip to the largest dude ranch East of the Mississippi! River Ranch RV Resort is located next to the Westgate River Ranch Resort. They say the birthplace of the American Cowboy is right here in Florida! Makes a lot of sense when you think about it. Haven’t you noticed all the cow pastures everywhere? The RV sites were fantastic and the resort was still a lot of fun despite the pandemic. We can’t believe we never went to a rodeo before, what a blast!

Chef Apple

She Made Me Eat Snails!

Happy Valentine’s Day everyone!

small-clipart-valentine-20

Last week we went to pay a visit to Le Bistro. A French bistro owned by an instructor from Apple’s culinary school that was featured on Kitchen Nightmares! He’s a British man with a hell of a character and a great culinary instructor. Le Bistro was a place that Apple would point out every time we found ourselves heading on US1 in Pompano Beach. “We have to eat there sometime” she would say “That’s the chef I know that was on Kitchen Nightmares, it was hilarious!”  This went on for a couple of years until one day they posted a special pre fixe menu that included a bottle of wine and the price seemed right.

It was finally time to check this bistro out and, well… since we are YouTubers… we made a video about it!

Hope you enjoy!

Our Experience at Disney’s California Grill

We arrived at the Contemporary Resort early to check in to ensure the maitre d’ sat us in perfect view of the fireworks at the Magic Kingdom. These reservations were made over 6 months ago to make sure we had the best table for Apple’s birthday. Since we arrived really early they let us up to sit at the bar area while we waited. We started with a short-rib appetizer and some cocktails. The short-ribs were unbelievably tasty. short ribs

Our table was ready early and since the fireworks were not for another 3 hours or so, we decided this was going to be an all night affair and that was the waiter’s idea. What a great guy, I wish we remembered his name for our next visit.

 

The next course was the charcuterie. It was a very lovely selection of meats. The duck was my favorite and Rob loved them all.

For the main course I ordered the dungeness crab over spaghetti with bone marrow crumb and blue crab butter. Rob ordered the pepperoni pizza. I know, it was a little weird going to such an amazing restaurant and only ordering a pizza. At first I thought it was because our bill was going to be so high and he was just trying to be frugal but when I took a bite of his pizza it almost made me regret getting what I ordered. Almost but not quite. The dish was amazing. You can tell the spaghetti was fresh made and the bone marrow crumb was crunchy for some reason. I loved every bite.

We took our time just enough for the lights to dim in the restaurant and we were able to watch the fireworks show “Happily Ever After” at the Magic Kingdom from our table. It had rained a couple hours prior and the windows were still wet but that didn’t stop us from enjoying the show, it just ruined any photo or video we tried to take.fireworks.png

I really wanted desert but we had no more room. To be honest I was getting a little worried about the size of the check. I kept ordering these delicious blueberry martinis and Rob’s beers were not that cheap either. We did forget one small detail, we are on Disney property and I was still wearing my birthday button. So the waiter brought us out a Boston cream cupcake with a candle in it and the couple next to us (who we have been chit chatting with most of the night) joined Rob as he sang “happy birthday” to me. A perfect ending for a perfect day.

Jerk Chicken in Jamaica

The last time we were in Jamaica I really wanted jerk chicken! Since I am (was) a chef, one of the most important part of my travel experience is to get to eat local food. I especially would love to try food I’ve tried already back home so I can compare to know what really is close to authentic. We met a lady named Mariesha who was nice enough to drive us around and bring us to Duns River Falls. I expressed how much I want to eat something local and begged for it not to be anything touristy. She started with Jamaican beef patties and then a place that makes pudding, which is moist cake that is made in old tire rims on the side of the street. After she picked us back up from the Duns River Falls it was time to go to Scotchies for this jerk chicken she insisted was the best on the island. Unfortunately we arrived to late because a big tour bus just wiped them clean out of chicken. Imagine my disappointment because that was the stop I was looking forward to the most!

This trip was our second chance to finally get this Scotchys everyone was talking about. Yes, we made sure to tell this story to our Jamaican friends/acquaintances and they all agree it’s good food. We messaged Mariesha on Facebook and her fiance took us around this time.

Our first stop along the way was a cafe on the side of the road that had beautiful views of the beach on the second story. The next stop was the historic Richmond Hill Inn in Montego Bay. In the 1700’s it was the property of the Dewars family, you know the Scotch whisky. It also hosts several beautiful pieces from the late Barrington Watson, Jamaica’s most renowned artist. We just might have had a destination wedding if I knew about this place sooner!

Before returning to the Port of Falmouth, we finally got to indulge in some authentic jerk chicken and Red Stripe beer at Scotchies. We didn’t stop at just jerk chicken though. There was jerk pork, chicken wings, and some friend bread too. I now get why it’s called Scotchies. It’s because scotch bonnet peppers is what their house sauce is made of. So hot but oh so good.

After tuning down several offers to buy marijuana we made it back to the port with 45 min to spare so we did a little shopping at the wood carving booths. I have to say I am pretty happy with what Rob got me. One wood carving was a large mahi-mahi made out of mahogany and the other was a sweet little palm tree with 2 hearts. He had the gentleman carve our initials in each heart at “Jamaica 2018” at the bottom.

 

Don’t forget to follow and subscribe. Rob and I go to our next port of call and race sailboats in Mexico!
