Their breakfast brings all of the guests into the dining room for special meals. Not just one-breakfast-for-all, guests choose from a menu of three different selections.
The first choice, their specialty, T’s Famous Eggs Florentine takes time and effort to prepare. Tanya and her husband start cooking an hour before the guests are scheduled to eat. The recipe includes two over-medium eggs served on an English muffin with fresh spinach, tomatoes and hollandaise sauce.
The next choice is a stack of Hot Cakes. If the guests wish, there’s also the Traditional two fresh farm eggs, bacon or sausage.
Other interesting dishes are the secret recipe for Cristy’s sour dough French Toast and their Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal cooked in a crock pot.
All breakfasts include extra crispy bacon, fruit, OJ, coffee and Mimosas. What a great way to begin the day!
Breakfast becomes the time to meet the other guests, relax and watch all of the preparations. Tanya explained, “We schedule breakfast at 9 and 10 A.M. to suit the guests in case they want to sleep late. Our guests have a lot of options. We want to make sure, when our guests leave, they are happy.”
