My husband, Bob, and I left Mystic, Connecticut, in 2007 aboard our Tayana 58, Scaramouche, for a yearlong sabbatical cruise. We sailed north to Maine and then south to Florida and the Bahamas. Eleven years later, we're still cruising! That "sabbatical" is now a way of life. These days, we spend most of our time exploring Florida, the Bahamas and the Caribbean. After more than four decades of sailing and cruising aboard numerous boats, including Scaramouche, I've honed my skills as ship's cook, and tagged numerous recipes that are onboard favorites. Some of our most enjoyable times aboard Scaramouche are the cool, rainy or foggy mornings that keep us dockside or at anchor in the harbor.
