Vegan Meals in St. Augustine: Decadent Soaked Oatmeal

If you’ve read this blog for a while, you know that my mother has lupus, and a list of food allergies about as long as my leg. She seemed a little depressed when she was first diagnosed–after all, it’s not fun to hear that a lot of the foods your taste buds love are bad … Read More

The Best Banana Pancakes EVAH

I just had a past guest email me and ask for our banana pancakes recipe. “I’m not a great cook,” he said, “but my girlfriend loved the banana pancakes when we visited your inn, and I would like to try and make them for our anniversary.” Well, I have good news for you, Jim S…and … Read More

The Best Quiche Lorraine Recipe

The best quiche lorraine recipe begins with a few simple ingredients. We bought the Bayfront Marin House in 2010, after putting a five year plan together to own a bed and breakfast in St. Augustine (full disclosure: the five year plan took us 14!).

Breakfast Recipe: Marin House French Toast

It’s true, you know–food tastes better on vacation. Having said that, we have a couple of recipes that taste really really good any time–on vacation, at home, at a family gathering.

Vegan Breakfast: Soaked Pumpkin Oatmeal

Eggs Benedict casserole

Decadent Breakfast: Eggs Benedict Strata Recipe

Eggs benedict taste like vacation, don’t they? Maybe it’s just me, but vacation is the only time I order eggs benedict. With apologies to the layer farmers that I grew up with, eggs may be healthy–but bathe those babies in creamy, buttery hollandaise sauce and you’re probably not talking about diet friendly fare. It’s not … Read More

Bed and Breakfast Holiday Recipe: Cape May Strata

The holidays were especially gratifying this year in St. Augustine. After all, Hurricane Matthew was only a few weeks ago, and it seemed as if all of the business owners, residents, and even visitors wanted to give the celebration their all.

Shoofly Muffins at Bayfront Marin House

Bed and Breakfast Comfort Food Recipe: Shoofly Muffins

They call it comfort food–that particular brand of food that you equate with your childhood, that you picture when you think about your happiest memories, and that you crave when needing to find some solace. I may live in St. Augustine, but for me, comfort food is almost always Pennsylvania Dutch–a bowl of potpie with fat … Read More

Friday is Now PIE Day in St. Augustine!

One of the best things about living in the south is that we get to enjoy local fruit and vegetables earlier than most folks in other parts of the country. Heck, we had fresh strawberries from Plant City this year, while our friends and family in Baltimore were anticipating snow! As much as we love … Read More
