A lot of people might think that pumpkin is an autumn-only ingredient. Well, let us confess, we use pumpkin all year ’round. Don’t judge. And Innkeeper Dave’s pumpkin bread remains our top-requested recipe. So we have it here just for you. Enjoy!
Oh, snickerdoodles, we love you so. The perfect combination of cinnamon and sugar wrapped up in a not-too-soft and not-too-crunchy cookie with a silly name, the snickerdoodle is a treat we like to make for guests when the weather turns cooler and the days get shorter.
For Christmas 2014, we wanted to mix up our Christmas cookie, but just a little bit. Each year for the holidays, we’ve done a chocolate-based cookie: mint chocolate chip, chocolate gingerbread, chocolate snickerdoodles, you get the point. This year, the chocolate is not only in the cookie but also in the form of a kiss (awwww).
“Can Dave make his Soda Bread Muffins for us?” That’s a question we hear a lot from return guests at the Inn on Mill Creek Bed & Breakfast. Soda Bread (or its equally delish counterpart, the Soda Bread Muffin) is like the food version of the color white — it goes with everything. And it can be served at any meal, although we’re partial to breakfast for obvious reasons. The best part about this beautiful baked good is that Soda Bread is really easy to make. You probably already have most, if not all, of the ingredients in your kitchen.
