I know this don’t look 👀 very appealing to many of you after it’s been blended... but this AMAZING green fruit smoothie I made tastes so good!! This guest was certainly thrilled about it yesterday, that a repeat order happened today. Glad you liked it! 😋 😋 #OffTheMenu
-light agave nectar syrup (optional)
-cold water (your choice of water)
Directions: Put everything together, however make sure the ice is packed in away from the blades. Add enough of your cold water for the amount of liquid you want to fill your glass. Add some light agave for the amount of sweetness that you want. Enjoy! #cheftracey #smoothie #greens #spinach #pineapple #banana #strawberry #blueberry #ice #water #agave #lightagave #waldorforlando #bonnetcreek #bonnetcreekresort #womenchefs #womenchefsofinstagram #healthyfood #freshfruits
So this didn’t turn out as pretty as I had imagined (I pictured a two day masterpiece complete beautiful perfect layers a la milk bar cake😂)- but it was too delicious not to share!
Recently found out that Bull and Bear at @waldorforlando is back open in pop up form and that had me craving some of their peanut butter chocolate cake- unfortunately I won’t be able to get there until September at the earliest so I decided to make my own version of it at home!
It’s a chocolate cake base that I doused in a chocolate simple syrup- next comes the homemade vanilla bean ice cream topped with a peanut butter mousse and semi-sweet chocolate ganache.

"Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only." - Coco Chanel (hosted)⠀
A scoop of ice cream is like dessert's best accessory! It takes it to the next level! Doesn't it? ⠀
Leave it to me to think of food when talking about fashion! "A La Mode" anyone? ⠀
It's #VanillaIceCreamDay so here's my question: do you go for classic vanilla or a fun flavor when enhancing your desserts?⠀
The desserts at La Luce - the Italian restaurant at @bonnetcreek - are top notch. From their killer Butterscotch pudding made with McCallan 12 yr Scotch to classic tiramisu and flourless chocolate cake. I like to add a scoop of their housemade gelato, just because!⠀
These two desserts from 2019 Food & Wine Weekends were winners! Caramelized Apple Crostata with Honey Gelato and Sugar Bomboloni with Amarena Cherry Gelato See. ice cream & gelato = next level! ⠀
Sadly Food & Wine Weekends will not be happening in 2020 thanks to the pandemic that shall not be named, however, La Luce is now open and welcoming locals and hotel guests. Make a reservation for some of the best Italian food in Orlando. Add a scoop of gelato to any of their desserts, let your taste buds transport you to Italy and live a little! ⠀

FL Courses We Love: The Waldorf Astoria Golf Club in Orlando
Amidst the Bonnet Creek nature preserve in Orlando, FL lies The Waldorf Astoria Golf Club. Using the land’s natural contours as a canvas and a fertile imagination as a palette, this meticulously designed course was created by acclaimed golf course architect Rees Jones in 2009. The 18-hole championship course pulls in elements from several of the world’s classic courses and delightfully blends its traditional character with endless subtleties for a challenging experience. Mindful of the natural elements and in homage to the game’s storied history, Jones created a golf course of great integrity and environmental consciousness that seamlessly folds into the terrain, so it appears to have been here forever.
Visually stunning and immensely playable, the par 72 golf course is enhanced by natural elements like majestic cypress trees lining the fairways and features a five-tee system to accommodate golfers of every caliber. From the tips, The Waldorf Astoria Golf Club measures an intimidating 7,108 yards and maintains a course rating of 74.6 and slope of 139. A great challenge for visitors to the Orlando area!

It’s #NationalFriedChickenDay so here’s a few of my most memorable fried chicken dishes in Orlando. Let’s celebrate with the quintessential classic comfort food.⠀

🐓 The One With Heart & Soul: @shantellsjustuntil in @historicdowntownsanford serves up good old fashioned soul food. And owner Shantell Williams has an inspiring story to tell. Try her fried chicken with okra and fried green tomatoes. ⠀
🐓 The Famous One: @thechefartsmith fried chicken is legendary! (Oprah’s favorite!) You can find it at @homecominfl in @disneysprings. Enjoy in their new outdoor patio. ⠀
🐓 The Surprising One - Part 1: A fantastic seafood restaurant also serves some of the best fried chicken in town! @reelfishcoastal Buttermilk Pan Fried Chicken, enjoy for dinner with taso ham collard greens and cheese grits or for weekend brunch with waffles & real maple syrup. ⠀
🐓 The Surprising One - Part 2: It’s also The Bougiest One and The One I’ve never been able to get a good picture of! 🤣 But boy is it fantastic! I highly recommend ordering @waldorforlando Bull & Bear Fried Chicken as an appetizer and share. They reopened on July 1st. Time to plan a staycation!⠀
🐓 The One at The Top of My Someday List: I love a good spicy chicken and I hear from all my foodie friends that @eatchickenfire at @eastendmkt is truly 🔥🔥 Can’t wait to try it and #MakeSomedayHappen⠀
