My New England Vacation (with food highlights, of course!)

This post may contain affiliate links.

Well friends, I’ve been holding out on you… but I return today from a month-long vacation in New England. That explains my MIA status in visiting not a single blog in the last 30 days. We stayed in a beach house north of Cape Cod where we enjoyed the sun and sand, visiting relatives, evening cocktails, and loads of local seafood. A great, great vacation! Here are some New England Recipes highlights from the trip:

crab cakes

Low- Fat Baked Crab Cakes


White Peach Sangria


Black Dog Quahog Chowder

grilled striped bass

Grilled Striped Bass with Garlic- Mustard Sauce

Steamed Lobster

And plenty of lobstah! Just steamed with butter. And a few lobster rolls too. Oh yeah.

That’s just the beginning. I’ll have many more fun beach & seafood recipes from my trip to share in the coming weeks.

I look forward to seeing what you have all been up to creating in your kitchens in my absence!

Recipes can be located by clicking on recipe titles above.

    Well I’m glad you enjoyed my “backyard” while here….LOL Hull is on the South Shore, about 20 miles south of Boston and about 1 hour north of the “bridges.” Next time you head this way, give me a shout. I’ll have bisque waiting.
