Discover the recipes used at the Atrium Bed and Breakfast. Because it’s more fun to spend time with guests than to spend time in the kitchen, a lot of the recipes in this book are not complicated. Enjoy them at home without having to fuss too much. These recipes use familiar, easily-obtainable ingredients. The most important ingredient is fresh.

From Lemon Ricotta Pancakes to Christmas Cranberry Muffins with Cranberry Butter to Lavender Lemonade to Riesling-Simmered Apricots and Pears with Yogurt Cream, you will find wonderful recipes that are easy to make!

They are simply delicious.


Who ever thought of the words breakfast and entree being used together to describe a dish? As a cook, I certainly had not. Rather than the usual breads and eggs, this cookbook offers intriguing recipes for breakfast entrees. Thirteen breakfast entree recipes are featured, including such interesting ones as Grilled Apple and Havarti Sandwiches and Italian Fresh Vegetable Strata. Follow the entree you choose with a “Weekend Dessert,” and you have a special meal indeed. The large selection of fruit dishes including my favorite, Riesling Simmered Apricots and Pears wit Yogurt Cream, all will titillate your pallet. Extra Touch Sauces and Beverages with a Twist give just that, an extra touch and a twist. Even the breads and muffins are amazing. Try the Morning Glory, the Cappuccino Chip, or the Sunrise. In a cookbook topic that gets little recognition, breakfasts, this book is a gem.
