If you ever want a special get-a-way,
be it a week or just a weekend, I would
highly recommend staying at a B & B..
You'll be in for a unique vacation experience..
B & B's can be a beautiful old
Victorian Home, an Amish Farmhouse
or perhaps an Adobe in the Southwest..
Whichever you choose, you'll be served
a very special breakfast..
Most will serve an afternoon tea
or Wine and Assorted Cheeses as well.
Occasionally you'll find one that also
will serve dinner by special request.
Here you will find a few recipes from
B & B's for you to try at your own B & B,
better known to your family as "Home".
I have included a link at the end of each
recipe to the B & B where the recipe came
from, just in case you would like any
information from their web site.
