Upping the ante on boxed pancake mix

Krusteaz is the best - haven't made anything else for years. Cinnamon, blueberries, apples, etc. are all easy to add and work great. A friend of mine worked for a big industrial food company and they tried for years to create a mix that people liked better than Krsteaz but never succeeeded.

Can I really bake dinner in a toaster oven?

I would give up my microwave but never the toaster oven. I use it almost everyday -- great for cooking for one or two people and saving energy. . I have a new Breville now and love it. - think this is my 3rd oven in 30 years. I use the top for warming dishes, meltting butter, etc,. while cooking.

A little touristy but good and interesting, slightly different food in a nice lagoon setting - I liked La Destileria. The tableside cooking makes for a fun atmosphere.

Harry's (steakhouse with seafood) had gigantic portions of typical steakhouse food, good service and atmosphere. The spool of cotton candy delivered at meal's end was a surprise.

On the lower end of the $ scale and very local atmospher , both located mid-hotel zone, Fish Frittanga and Pescador (?) had tasty seafood tacos, etc.
