Embarking on a cruise is fun! What makes it even more fabulous is all that glorious food & drink….

Cruise Inspired Recipes |

Hi everyone! I have been reflecting on my wonderful Carnival cruise & I added a Cruise Inspired Recipes Pinterest board to share recipes inspired by cruise cuisine. There were so many wonderful ingredients & flavor combinations I tasted on my travels. I will be using them a great deal in upcoming recipes. When I embarked on the Carnival Conquest, I also set sail on a delicious taste journey!

Pop over to Pinterest & take a look at images that will tempt you to hit the high seas! But first check out these mouthwatering delights….

Thank goodness there was always plenty of guacamole (my favorite)!

On the Carnival Conquest there are a few dinners I paid a bit extra to attend (Being an obsessed foodie I couldn’t resist!) These included the Chef’s Table & The Point Steakhouse. They came highly recommended to me so I knew I had to splurge. Boy were they worth it!

There were a dozen guests at the Chefs Tasting. A wonderfully intimate dinner with the executive chef & his team. Without being a part of this dinner I never would have made my way into the galley. It was fascinating!

I met the amazing chefs…

Laughed with them & enjoyed the conversation at the table.

And drank lots of vino!

Raise your hand if you love a glass of wine with dinner?!

I learned how to make a great margarita too:
