Black Bean Burritos"A new flair on burritos, and actually they're just as good fried up all together as a side dish, and then put into a tortilla. This was a tasty surprise." — Victoria M.H. 
READY IN 40 mins
Original recipe makes 8 burritos  1 (15 ounce) can black beans, drained and rinsed

MargaritaWhat to buy: All self-respecting margaritas are made with only 100 percent agave tequila (we like to use the high-quality Cuervo 1800, Patrón Silver, Herradura, or Don Julio) and Cointreau.
INGREDIENTS
    Salt, for rimming the glass (optional)
    Ice
    1 1/2 ounces tequila (blanco, 100 percent agave)
    1 ounce freshly squeezed lime juice

Ultimat Blueberry MartiniThe Ultimat Blueberry Martini, along with The Patron Gold Cosmopolitan, will be featured cocktails at the pre-show party and at the Governors Ball during the 81st Academy Awards, and both are star-worthy cocktails. This one in particular is a fantastic mix of Ultimat, a very smooth, premium vodka, and fresh blueberries, which just happen to be in their prime this time of year.

One Skillet PaellaAnother one dish recipe because we boaters LOVE simplicity when it comes to creating tasty but low maintenance meals onboard.
This paella dish has great flavour, a terrific combination of textures and is easy to create.  Enjoy!

Seafood StewThis super-easy recipe is ideal for preparation in a galley because, as this post title suggests, it involves throwing everything into just one pot. LOVE that! And if you have a Le Creuset casserole pot or skillet then it is even more perfect for you:

Foil Grilled PotatoesWell here is the vegetable and the dessert.  All you have to figure out is what kind of meat or fish to grill alongside these two delectable and easy dishes...

Cruising Taters: Prick white baking potato or sweet potato in several places. Wrap in foil and cook over medium heat, turning often, for about 50 minutes. Top with 1 of the following: baked beans, canned mixed bean salad, antipasto, salsa, chive butter, sour cream, herbed cream cheese.

Pan Fried FishPan frying fish is, perhaps, the most delicious way to cook any non-fatty fish. The coating protects the flesh from direct heat and helps keep the fish moist, while also providing a browned and crispy or crunchy crust. Yet, the method avoids the large amount of oil (not to mention the mess) required for deep frying. The steps here show how to do a full three-step coating, but the basic idea can also be used to simply coat the fish once with flour to improve browning for pan fried fish. Whether you catch and fillet your own fish or buy them from a fish monger or at a fish counter, always cook with only the highest quality, impeccably handled fish. Look for firm, uniformly textured flesh and a clean smell of ocean, river, or lake. Fish should never smell fishy or have soft spots or bruising.

Bacon and Beer MusselsA hearty and easy one pot recipe for Entertaining On Board
Portion size: 12 servings of 4 mussels each
Serve with crusty bread for sopping up the juices. Choose a favourite local microbrew (wheat beer is best) for steaming, as well as serving alongside. This recipe doubles easily for a larger crowd.

1 Pan Skillet CookieThis huge, chocolatey cookie can be made in any galley and will keep the deck hands happy!  Mix up and bake a warm cookie, oozing with rivers of chocolate, all in one cast iron skillet.  First up, chop that chocolate bar. You can surely use chocolate chips if that’s all you have on hand, but I love the random and unequally-sized chocolate chunks strewn throughout the cookie. Also, using dark chocolate makes this healthy! Antioxidants my friends.

 Killarney

KillarneyStory and Photos by: Jennifer Harker

We’re aboard Attigouatan, a Pursuit 2260 that normally lives life as a friend’s cottage boat, running back and forth from dock to dock. This will be her longest run in four years, travelling the approximately 120 kilometres (80 miles) northwest from Parry Sound to Killarney, threading our way through the northern reaches of the stunning 30,000 Islands of Georgian Bay’s eastern shoreline.

Her name evokes an early indigenous name for Lake Huron – Spirit Lake.

Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 440

Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 440By Zuzana Prochazka

There are few things more satisfying than watching someone thumb their nose at tradition and introduce something revolutionary that kicks convention to the curb. French designer, Philippe Briand, has done just that for Jenneau’s new line of Sun Odyssey family cruisers. By starting with a clean sheet, Briand re-thought how we move about on deck and below, and the results on the Jeanneau 440 are game changing.

Jeanneau unveiled the first hull of their 440 in Annapolis with dramatic flair. On command, the plastic that sheathed half the boat...
