Review of a Foodies Norwegian Cruise, from David Epstein and Melissa Bartolomeo

The way it used to be! But, not so friendly or accomodating staff today!

APtravelnews-March 29th, -Norwegian Cruise Lines at the Port of Miami-Provided by David and Melissa-
Remember when the last time you took a cruise, the overall experience and service was at the very least, exceptional and made you “keeper”, pleasant memories. Well, Cruising good service then and now things are not as they used to be. If you were on a cruise more than 5 years ago, you remember your server/waiter/ busboy- where they were from and something about why they are on the ship, likely to support their family in a far away country. If you have recently gone cruising at least on a Norwegian Liner, then you probably have very little happy memories at least about their food services. The new super-ships are beautiful and offer many new restaurant options-but!. Part of my family memories with my parents brother and children were bonding over dinner, and the servers all were part of that experience to some important extent.

Seth McGinn’s CanCooker-A Recipe For Terrific Under an Hour, Cooked Foods!

Barb says easiest cooking of an entire meal, ever!
Barb says easiest cooking of an entire meal, ever!

APtravelnews-New Products Tests-March 9th,-Bob and Barb “Stopping to Smell the Roses” at home in PSL, FL.

Finally, after traveling to dozens of locations, dining in fine restaurants, and sleeping in great, but strange rooms and beds, we came back to enjoy our private hearth and home. We found an excellent product to help keep us happy, and that allows us to eat hearty and healthy. Seth McGinn’s CanCooker is a simple 2-gallon cooker that allows for too many recipes to count, great, under an hour, cooked meals. We made our own recipe on the run, although a great booklet of recipes comes with an owners manual, and WOW!-the flavors were fabulous! There are grills for doing ribs, whole chickens and other game meats, as well as briskets, and an entire array of great dishes for a couple, or for a whole family or friends.

We dropped in potatoes, chicken thighs, a can of coconut milk, carrots, a melange of herbs growing in our little garden, garlic-about two cloves, onions, some cabbage, sweet peppers, 12-ounces of water, and let her rip on the stove, after just,clip-closing the two lids on the CanCooker. 45-minutes later, voila, a full meal for us today and tomorrow too! The cooker, much like those scary pressure cookers (but this Cooker is designed totally safe and so simple, anyone including a politician can not mess it up) imparts the flavors and essences of everything in the Cooker, and the aromas and taste tell the whole story about this wonderful unit we can carry anywhere, and cook over any heat source.  This is perfect for camping, boating cabin and RV meals too! Go: www.cancooker.com for additional information and how you too, can have one of these great units.P1060047P1060046
