We love to offer our guests at the Apple Tree Lane Bed & Breakfast, the total experience of the holidays to enjoy all the sights, sounds, and tastes of the season! With the house fully decorated (I think it is our most beautiful tree yet!), the Christmas music playing ( a lot of "White Christmas" because I want it to snow?!), and the fire blazing (it is in the single digits this morning!), we created a wonderful "taste" of the season for breakfast too.
Thanks to our recent guests, Tamara & Joe, they shared one of their favorite Christmas time breakfast recipes with us, and we made it today, and have to agree ~~ Delicious!
We didn't think they would mind if we shared it with all of you ~~
