Peach Bread Pudding

by BnB Finder March 25th, 2014| Best BnB Bites, Recipes
Peach Bread PuddingIf you think it'd be impossible to whip up a special brunch or dessert starting with stale bread, canned peaches, and two ounces of liqueur shared among all the diners --  you haven't read this recipe. The bread and peaches soak overnight in a sweet and slightly spicy egg mixture which lets them bake up golden the next day. The finishing touch is the rich, sweet, and very easy Amaretto Sauce. This comes from the Corner Cottage Bed & Breakfast in Fredericksburg, Texas,  close to downtown but still with a secluded feeling, not to mention high-speed internet

Eggs Pomodoro

by BnB Finder March 11th, 2014| Best BnB Bites, Recipes
eggs pomodoroOur theme for March is bread, and this recipe brings you a very special take on the humble sandwich. Freshly baked biscuits are split into halves and topped with oven-roasted tomato slices, ham or bacon (your choice) and poached eggs. Pesto (or just fresh basil) and Parmesan cheese add a touch of exotic flavor, and a little broiling finishes the dish. If you've never poached eggs, this recipe tells you how to do it perfectly. It comes from the Azalea Inn and Gardens in the heart of Savannah, Georgia, which caters to weddings as well as simple

Dutch Pancakes (Pannekoeken)

by BnB Finder March 4th, 2014| Best BnB Bites, Recipes
Dutch PancakesPancakes come in many different versions. My own pancake batter is mostly oatmeal and buttermilk, and sits in the fridge all night after it's been mixed. I also have great memories of poffertjes in the Netherlands (if only the place that made them had been open more often) and crepes, which our chef covered in depth a few weeks ago. This recipe is yet another kind of pancake, another Dutch one, which can be rolled like a crepe around any filling you like.  It's from the Silverstone Inn and Suites in Lancaster, Pennsylvania -- Amish country, and

6 Foods to Start Making Yourself

by Jane Wangersky December 26th, 2013| Cooking Basics
OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAIf you're thinking of resolving to spend less and eat healthier this year, you can start by deciding to cut down on the convenience foods and learn to make at least a few foods from scratch. Here are some ideas for starters:

Tomato sauce -- start by cooking vegetables (onions, garlic, celery, peppers, whatever -- I've even sneaked in spinach) in a little oil till they're soft. Then add crushed tomatoes, or tomato paste, water, and a little wine, plus basil and maybe oregano, and simmer a few minutes. This tastes much fresher and has lots of extra nutrition.

Eggs Florentine (Gluten-Free)

by BnB Finder December 10th, 2013| Best BnB Bites, Recipes
gfefThis week's dish is not only gluten-free, but also easy to make from frozen and canned ingredients plus a few pantry staples.  Most of the work is done the night before, when the Florentine part -- spinach and mushrooms -- is combined with eggs, butter, and three cheeses, then refrigerated. In the morning, simply bake for a filling breakfast or brunch. This would also be great for a meatless supper. Read to the end for a low-fat version.  The Brierley Hill Bed & Breakfast in Lexington, VA, which provides this recipe, is happy to accommodate

Orange Cranberry Soufflé

by BnB Finder November 19th, 2013| Best BnB Bites, Recipes
Orange CranberrySoufflés are delicious, but can be tricky to make -- usually you need to separate the eggs, whip the whites till they turn stiff instead of liquid,  and hope the whole thing doesn't fall as it's baking. Not this one! Already-baked (and already puffed) croissants are soaked in an egg mixture overnight, then baked in the morning for a special hot breakfast or brunch, or maybe even dessert. Cream cheese adds a touch of richness, and orange, maple, cranberry and cinnamon flavors come together to brighten any winter day. From the Andon-Reid Inn Bed and Breakfast in

Maple Walnut Stuffed French Toast

by BnB Finder November 5th, 2013| Best BnB Bites, Recipes
french toastStuffed French toast is growing more and more popular, especially on restaurant menus, but you don't have to eat out to enjoy it. This recipe makes a sweet and nutty version with enough servings for eight brunch guests. Walnuts coated in maple syrup team up with cream cheese to make a filling that's both creamy and crunchy, served between slices of Texas toast fried in a rich egg and cream batter. This comes to us from Cabernet Inn B&B of North Conway, New Hampshire, among the pines near beautiful Mt. Washington, a great place for a weekend

Breakfast Corn Chowder with Poached Eggs

by BnB Finder October 8th, 2013| Best BnB Bites, Breakfast Dishes, Recipes
BreakfastCornChowderHere's another dish most of us have never thought of as breakfast -- very different from Tropical Breakfast Sorbet, but just as inviting -- Breakfast Corn Chowder with Poached Eggs. It's like bacon, eggs, and hash browns with an extra touch of creamy warmth. This hearty dish is just the thing to set you up for a day of cross-country skiing or hiking in the Vermont woods that it comes from. The Rabbit Hill Inn in Lower Waterford, VT, is the perfect place for a getaway from the phone, Internet, and TV (though the first

10 Fitch Tropical Breakfast Sorbet

by BnB Finder September 24th, 2013| Best BnB Bites, Recipes
TropicalBreakfastSorbetLooking over so many recipes from bed and breakfasts all over the U.S., I'm often impressed by the hosts' inventiveness in coming up with breakfast dishes for their guests. This week, for example, we have breakfast sorbet -- it's like starting off your day with ice cream. The tropical fruits bring you a touch of sunshine that many of us could use right now as summer fades away. (This sorbet would also make a great dessert.) This recipe comes from 10 Fitch Luxurious Romantic Inn in Auburn, New York, which promises "elegance, tranquility, romance, & even a little

Lemon Artichoke Strata

by BnB Finder July 23rd, 2013| Best BnB Bites, Recipes
LemonArtichokeArtichokes for breakfast? Well, why not, especially if you're on vacation and the B&B hosts are cooking? But if it still seems a little strange, try pairing this lemony dish with a green salad for a meatless but filling supper. The artichokes and lemon aren't the whole story -- milk, eggs, and your favorite bread and cheese round out the dish. C.W. Worth House Bed & Breakfast in Wilmington, North Carolina, is the source for this distinctive recipe; if you book a stay there, just look for the two turrets when you arrive in town. Or stay

Chocolate Espresso Pancakes with Raspberry Coulis

by BnB Finder July 9th, 2013| Best BnB Bites, Recipes
ChocolateEspressoPancakesIt's raspberry season -- at least, where I live it is. We're lucky enough to have raspberries growing in our backyard, and we've been able to pick big bowls of them every one of the past few days. Raspberries are delicious just as they come, of course, but they also go great with lots of other tastes, especially chocolate. This recipe from the Strawberry Creek Inn (hmm, strawberries are pretty good too) combines not only raspberries and chocolate, but coffee -- all in a batch of extra special pancakes. The Inn, in Idyllwild, California, offers "peaceful luxuries
