Cabin Fever, Kitchen Ceiling & Cookies!

Leave a comment
Ever wonder what Innkeepers do in the off-season? You can see from the previously posted snow photos that we spent a lot of time indoors this winter, resulting in a new kitchen ceiling! The lighting alone makes a huge difference and it’s nice to have the old acoustical tile gone, new trim around the cabinet tops, and a higher ceiling that follows the line of the porch roof. Come see it when you’re here! It’s giving us a “lift” and inspiring new recipes like this chewy & delicious cookie made with whole wheat flour:

2 sticks butter, softened
1 c. dk. brown sugar
1/2 c. granulated sugar
2 eggs
