Greetings from the Virgin Islands!!

Greetings from St. Thomas, USVI!!  

Well, 2016 was quite a year for us!! 

In August, 2016, we made a huge move to St. Thomas in the USVI, where I now work as a School Psychologist.   Life is a between that pesky thing called work, lol!  I have been cooking up a storm, learning about new foods that are local to the islands and introducing my favorite foods to the island as well.  

Several of my coworkers who grew up on St. Thomas or other islands like St. Kitts and St. Croix, have NEVER heard of and NEVER eaten one of my favorite things ever..........Tamales!!
Well, I had to remedy this.......I learned to make to tamales from a friend before I moved away from Colorado so I made up a batch to share with my coworkers.  As predicted, they loved the tamales and I am spreading the love of tamales to people all over the island.  

I am currently making 4 dozen tamales for my friends at SOS Coffee and Bar (see their page on Facebook) to feature on their Friday night social menu!  I am posting a picture only for now and the recipe will be posted here soon! 

Oh yeah and I forgot to mention that we are business owners as of Thanksgiving 2016!!
Wrecklife is the premier dive shop, boat charter, fishing charter, and dive boat charter on the island of St. Thomas.  If you are visiting the island and want to head out on the open seas, give us a call! 
Ask for Captain Troy!!  

Captain Troy and me enjoying time on the boat!!
See you soon and will post Tamales recipe as promised!  Much love from the island! #saltlife

We are soooooo excited to see what 2017 has in store us!
