Day 2 Jamaica trip 2024

I’m writing this post a few weeks after returning to Ottawa but the next few days I wrote while I was in Jamaica. It was a very busy trip but this was a day I got to stay at the resort. Jewel Paradise Cove while my friend figured out our plans for the remainder of the week.  The resort posts the activity schedule on the app, on tv’s in the room, and on a screen in the lobby. I had seen that there was a resort tour at 11:00. I have stayed in many resorts and it usually the company that you booked with doing these tours. I liked that there was no need to wait for a specific tour rep and the hotel was doing this. My friend was out up and early for the garden tour. I slept in and went for breakfast at 10:30. I wanted my friend to come in the hotel tour with me because I have no sense of direction but we later discovered we weren’t getting each others text messages and I thought she was still on the garden tour.  I had received my friends text that she was disappointed there were no plantai

Chick-Fil-A copy cat but vegan


I have been watching way to many copy cat YouTube videos lately. I have never even been to Chick-Fil-A but decided to make the sauce after I saw the recipe on Raphael Gomes channel. The only things in the sauce that are not already vegan were mayo and honey I have access to vegan substitutes. 

I found the vegan honey didn’t taste like honey it’s less sweet and has a darker flavour like molasses. It’s good though. Recipe is simple mix ingredients in a jar I didn’t follow exact measurements. I then let it sit in the fridge for an hour. 

That looks pretty close to the pictures I have seen of the sauce. It tasted pretty good if I make it again I will add more honey as it wasn’t sweet enough I didn’t account for the milder taste of vegan honey. 

I live close to a no waste grocery store and they sell beyond tenders by the piece. I had waffle fries in my freezer and use my airfryer to heat the tenders and fries. The tenders are a little expensive so I didn’t want to experiment with doing anything to them incase it didn’t work out. I think they are pretty good on their own. I cut them in pieces just to make them look more like Chick-Fil-A nuggets. 

The lemon I used was very juicy I had squeezed some of the lemon into my water and added some vegan honey. It It was kind of like a lemonade which is my favourite drink. While I was drinking the lemon water I looked up Chick-Fil-A desserts they have a lemon frosty.. I didn’t have the ingredients for a copy cat recipe but I had some vegan ice cream from a local company called the Merry Dairy in my freezer. The flavour is mint chocolate chip but the flavour is very subtle and to me tasted like vanilla with a few chocolate chips. I added it to my lemon water to see what would happen. It was so good the slight mint flavour made it taste like a fancy drink. I just mixed it with a spoon and it’s so frothy. This was my favourite part of the meal. 

This was a pretty good meal. I now live in an area that does not have easy access to fast food. Even though I have never had Chick-Fil-A it was nice to have something that is like fast food. I am glad I made it.
