Family Recipes

We enjoy cooking our family recipes for our guests. We love using recipes from old feed stores and churches. Some recipes are ones we have passed down through our family for generations. The most popular with our family and our guests are spinach souffle, Sour Cream Coffee Cake, Carrot Cake, Lemon Chicken, and Apricot Tenderloins. We feature these here at the Inn on the menu and for breakfast. They are always popular and the requests to get the recipe are constant. My favorite part of those old recipes are the unusual ingridients they call for like the standard lard and using the word mango to refer to a green pepper. We also make wonderful meringued Almonds for our house salad thta we serve with mandarin oranges, Strawberries, and a homemade orange vinaigrette. I was offedered serious money for that recipe. We really try to use all local ingridients. We use produce from our garden as much as we can seasonally. We also pick up different kinds at the local farmer's market and our good friends up the road at Showley's orchard. An annual pilgrimage up to Michigan for fresh peaches, apricots, and blueberries. Coming back we stop for fresh amish cheeses, nuts, and grains. We don't fry anything here, but try to make healthy and delicious food. Our guest really apprciate the freshness and creativity we try to put in our food and it's presentation.
