If you give a mouse a cookie…

I almost always have cookies for my guests and while variety is the spice of life, these seem to be the guest favorite.  I recently had a guest request this recipe and while I was at it, decided to share it broadly.  In a previous life I used to make basic oatmeal cookies and add […]

You know how you wake up in the middle of the night and suddenly remember something you forgot to do?  Well last night was one of those nights and it happens too often for comfort. It occurred to me at 3 am, that over breakfast this past weekend I referred a guest to the website […]

Harrington House Cream Scones

I’m not sure how I have missed this opportunity, but this is probably the most asked for recipe in my bag of tricks. But I have to give credit where credit is due. My son fell in love with “cream teas” in England which I always tried to duplicate without much success.  For some reason […]

Pet Friends Galore

Spencer and Nicodemus get lots of visiting pet friends, but typically only one at a time.  November was a great month for dogs taking their owners on hiking  weekends and on one weekend we had visits from Olive, Wellington and Sake all at one time!    Everyone had a great time although Nicodemus spent a great deal […]

Herb and Goat Cheese Omelet

This is my favorite breakfast, just right if you are only cooking for two.  This fluffy omelet never ceases to impress but it only looks big because you whip the egg whites.  For a bigger group, double up on the recipe, use a larger pan and serve open faced.  Change the herbs and cheese to […]

Muffin Bread Pudding

Okay, so most people don’t make muffins as often as an innkeeper but even if you only do them once in awhile, never throw away those 2 that did not quite get eaten.  Stick them in a ziplock in the freezer until you need a fun breakfast that you can prep the night before and […]

Summer is half over?

When I look out my windows at my garden, I suddenly realize that summer is half gone.  You can always tell when the bee balm is fading and the blackeyed susies are in full bloom.  My roses look great but my stunning hydrangas are starting to droop.   The fall blooming sedum is all budded […]

Reflections on Golf

It’s Officially Summer!

The spring weather has been a little cool and very wet but the garden just loves it!  I do believe I can see the plants growing especially along the new fence that is surrounding the back an sides of the property.  But the real test is that the summer people have all returned to Pike […]
