This is what we had for Breakfast this morning:
Chocolate Waffles with a choice of maple syrup or strawberries and whipped cream.
(We all liked the strawberries and whipped cream best. :)
I got the recipe from my current read.
I've fallen in love with the Tales from Grace Chapel Inn series of books from GuidepostsBooks.
They remind me a lot of the Mitford book series by Jan Karon.
One difference with this series is that the books are not all written by the same author, but by several different authors.
These stories are about three sisters ~ two in their 60's and the "baby" in her 50's ~ that have started life anew by opening up their childhood home as a bed and breakfast.
Each sister is an artist in her own way; Louise, the eldest at 65, is a classical pianist, Alice, age 62, is a caring/compassionate nurse, and Jane, the baby at 50, is a very well-trained chef.
Here is the blurb from the back cover of Recipes & Wooden Spoons :
While cleaning out the cluttered basement of Grace Chapel Inn, Jane Howard finds an old cookbook brimming with her mother's recipes and handwritten notes. Through these precious, fragile pages, Jane comes to discover the spirit of her mother, Madeleine, who died while giving birth to Jane. But when the inn gets busy and money troubles threaten, Jane wonders if moving back to Acorn Hill was a big mistake. Can her crisis of faith lead to a new solution for the inn ~ and for Jane herself?
This book includes wonderful descriptions of the dishes Jane prepares from Madeleine's cookbook, along with the recipes.
I look forward each night to opening my current book and falling asleep while reading about the fun but peaceful life in Acorn Hill.
And I especially look forward to our Book Mobile driving into my Pleasant Valley each month bringing me more Tales from Grace Chapel Inn.
Life is grand!

P.S. The waffles were WONDERFUL!
