croissant_a_lorangeWinter months really make us miss summer, and one of the best ways we’ve found to cope is by loading up on plenty of citrus fruits. Oranges, lemons, limes and grapefruit give us a refreshing, zesty kick of flavor that’s chock-full of vitamin C (ideal for cold season!). The Maple Leaf Inn in Barnard, VT is a Victorian-style B&B situated in a quintessential Vermont village that features stunning views of Silver Lake and the Green Mountains, comfy accommodations and plenty of area attractions. Their innkeepers Michael and Nancy have a decadent recipe that the sweetest dreams are made of – Croissant a l’orange. It makes amazing oranges the ideal ingredient for taking the basic croissant to sumptuous new heights.
