MaiTai Tracy’s Kitchen: Our Favorite Recipes
From Our Kitchen To Yours
“A passion for food is a passion for life” – Old Italian saying
Welcome to MaiTai Tracy’s Kitchen!
Tom and I love to travel … and to eat! When Tom started Travels With Mai Tai Tom, MaiTai Tracy’s Kitchen was added as a way to help Tom build content. Somewhere along the way, I realized I enjoyed sharing recipes and really liked writing and taking pictures. I started by posting some of our favorites recipes from our years of entertaining. I have kept track of the menus for every single dinner and party we have had at our house since 1999. We like to host, what can I say?
Our very first party in 1991 was a Blazing Saddles costume party where we served Yankee Bean Soup and Tuna Surprise (food from the movie – not to worry, those recipes are not here). Our second effort was Thanksgiving, where the turkey erupted in flames. Apparently, it was a very juicy turkey and the drippings spilled out and caught fire in the oven. As I recall, everything turned out great despite our beagle snatching a loaf of cranberry bread from the table.
We are much improved since those two efforts. The recipes I share with you are our favorites; ones that can’t go wrong and that we feel are worth the effort. Our motto: “Good Food, Great Friends and Fun.”
On the travel side of things, I am the “Scribe.” I take copious notes that Tom magically transforms into his trip reports and posts. I am also his back up photographer; if it is a close up or a panorama, that is probably mine.
I hope you enjoy these recipes as much as we like sharing them!
