please note, most of the recipes we have made ourself, but some are from other cruising boats we have met along our travels. Where the recipe comes from another boat, we will clearly give them credit. We also want you to know that ALL of the recipes you find on our pages actually work aboard a cruising boat! We will NOT post any recipe that has not been prepared aboard a cruising boat and found to work well in the cruising environment.
