About the book: Boaters enjoy the simple life, the simpler the better! That’s why I wanted to collect very easy food and drink ideas for entertaining on your boat, with minimal ingredients and preparation. Spend more time with your “mates”!!!!

About the author: I was born and raised, in Rochester NY, by my absolutely wonderful parents who made such great memories for their children! They should know that one of my favorite memories is of them taking me and my two sisters to the Thousand Islands on family vacations. This is when my curiosity of the river first began! As I got older, I found myself making that trip to the river more and more and decided to make my stays a bit longer. I’d happily spend my whole summers bopping around from campground to campground, exploring as much as I could and getting out on the water every chance I got. I would land myself seasonal jobs at local restaurants in order to get by as I fell in love with the area. Well not only did I fall in love with the river, I fell in love with my now husband, Tom, who shares the same passion for the St. Lawrence as I do! Now residing in central NY, my family and I make it up to the St. Lawrence as often as life will let us. We are avid boaters on our Sea Ray Sundancer named Our Wedding. My husband and I hope to create the same great memories for our little boy as our parents have for us. We feel the river is not only in our lives but our way of life!
