Rachael Ray in Mexico

In Uncategorized by Madison Mayberry6 Comments

Ever since I returned from Mexico while traveling there for “Hey, Can You Cook?! All-Stars” I’ve been dying to share photos from my trip. Alas, I have had to keep my mouth shut and my photos to myself for quite a while in order to keep where and what we were filming a surprise for everyone watching at home. 
Now that our Mexican adventure episode has aired, I’m happy to share a little glimpse into a week that I will never forget. Truth be told, we spent more time cooking, filming and flying around the country of Mexico than we did lounging poolside and perfecting our tan. But when we did crash at the end of the day, we had more than adequate accommodations for our stay.  
The second half of our trip, while we were in San Miguel de Allende, was spent at the Rosewood San Miguel de Allende, without a doubt the most beautiful hotel I have ever stayed. The staff was kind, courteous and accommodating to the extreme. They even tracked down peanut butter for me when I was desperate for some on the sixth day of our trip. I could tell you more about the hotel, but I think the pictures (from my iPhone) do it more justice and words ever could.
{I wanted to take these mirrors back with me so badly!}
{I took a bath every single night we were there, and this tub is the reason why.}
{The view from the rooftop bar and restaurant at sunset.}
{Room service was extremely affordable. I enjoyed fresh carrot juice and a bowl of steel cut oats with apple compote. And coffee, of course!}
{My fellow contestants helped make my birthday away from home feel special by having the restaurant staff put this little chocolate mousse dessert together.}
{We ventured into downtown San Miguel one afternoon and stopped at an adorable pastry shop and restaurant.}
{Holy YUM}
{Okay, so we did manage to spend one afternoon out by the pool. The sun and water felt great, especially since I knew it was getting cold back home!}

Time to fess up: Have you ever been to Mexico? If so, where did you go and what did you think? 
I’ve been a couple times before, mainly to the Cancun area, and will admit that I wasn’t a huge fan. But after traveling to San Miguel, my feelings about Mexico have most certainly changed!
