Because we’re a group, I can get the best deals too! Let’s eat our way around the world together!

Join The Cooking Mom in Puerto Vallarta in January 2023! TIME IS RUNNING OUT!

I’ve planned THE ULTIMATE winter getaway! Let’s beat the winter blues and escape to Puerto Vallarta in January 2023. It’s one of my favorite cities in Mexico. It’s got it all. History, charm, breathtaking scenery, beautiful beaches, and an incredible food scene! I took a group here last winter and it was AMAZING! We had perfect weather with sunshine every day. It was so fun that I decided I just have to go back. Plus, we were able to negotiate an even better rate on this trip than last year! YIPPEE! There’s so much more to see, eat and do. Join me!

We’ll fly out Sunday January 15, 2023 and spend 7 days at the 4-diamond luxury Villa Premiere Boutique Resort. It’s right on the beach with a gorgeous huge pool overlooking the ocean. That’s where you’ll find me! I love the fact that this resort has only 80 rooms! They are all spectacular! Chefs will prepare delicious huge made-to-order breakfasts each morning and at night, we’ll enjoy sunsets and gourmet Mexican dinners! Live music some nights too!

We’ll join local experts and foodies who will take us off the beaten path in search of the city’s best! We’ll see how to make homemade fresh tortillas! We’ll scour the city for the very best guacamole, tacos, tamales, and of course the best scratch made margaritas too! There’ll be a day-long authentic Mexican cooking class. We’ll go to a huge beautiful Mexican market to shop and turn all the ingredients into an amazing Mexican feast!

S.S. Catherine Ship

I’ve always dreamed of taking a river cruise through Europe. It really is the way to go. You’ll get to see all the beauty of Southern France from the Rhone River on a first class gorgeous floating hotel with only 150 passengers. Like all my trips, this one is going to be amazing and over the top wonderful! Plus, this is a true ALL-INCLUSIVE river cruise.

There are lots of different cruise lines. We went with the top of the line. Uniworld is ABSOLUTELY THE BEST! We’ll be on the gorgeous new super-ship, the S.S. Catherine. Yes the cabins and ship are beautiful but, let’s be real here, this trip through Burgundy and Provence is all about the food and wine and the breathtaking scenery too!

Mackinac Island is just magical. There are no cars on the island. It’s like you’ve stepped back in time. The island is filled with history, gorgeous scenery, and lots of gourmet food and wine too.
