33 Recipes for Breakfast, Snacks, Dessert, or Whatever

March 27, 2012 by Scott Gile

It’s here!

We’ve been writing for a few weeks about the upcoming release of Breakfast at 8, the Brewster House cookbook, and it is now back from the printers, full of bed and breakfast recipes, and is almost ready to go!

Whether for a special breakfast (some of our guests like to use these recipes for Christmas morning, or other special occasions), or for just a special breakfast on a quiet weekend, there is something for everyone in Breakfast at 8. In addition to loads of selections of sweet and savory main breakfast dishes, there are plenty of fruit starters (many of which make wonderful desserts in the evening, as well), scones and muffins, cookies, and more!

Those who pre-ordered will be receiving their copies as soon as we can get the shipping materials together (we expect to begin shipping by about April 10). New orders will go out as quickly as possible after the pre-orders.

If you haven’t ordered your copy, you can use the convenient shopping cart at right (you’ll be taken to a secure area using Google Wallet to put in payment info), or on our website’s gift shop page.

[ OUR APOLOGIES for any inconvenience, but we are sold out of our cookbook, and the new owners of Brewster House do not have copies for sale]

We hope these recipes will bring you as much enjoyment (and good taste!) as they have for us!

Our Cookbook “Breakfast at 8″ is at the Printers!

March 13, 2012 by Scott Gile

Over the years guests have regularly urged Ruth to release a cookbook. Sometimes it is because they love the sweet or savory breakfast main courses we serve at Brewster House, sometimes it is the fruit starters, sometimes the cookies, scones, or whatever. But the consistent request is that Ruth put together a cookbook.

We can now tell you, the time has arrived. We went back and forth on the idea for a couple of years, then decided to prepare the cookbook last year, but ran out of time. This year, however, we made it a priority, and pulled together all the recipes. Ruth started with over 40 pages of them, then chose her favorites, made some changes, additions, and all the tweaks that go with the editing process, and Breakfast at 8 was born!

It went off to the printers for assembly and proofing, some additional changes were made, and we are now awaiting delivery of the first run of books.

We expect to have the books available for sale by some time in April, and hope to have online ordering available, too. We are taking pre-release orders now by phone or email, at $17 (tax and shipping included).

What Would You Put in Our Cookbook?

We need your help!

Our guests have been telling us for years that Ruth should publish a cookbook. We’ve decided that this is the year we want to do our best to make that happen, and we’re looking for your suggestions on the recipes to include.

 If you’ve had a dish you really enjoyed here, whether a main course, starter, or even our cookies and other afternoon refreshments, or if you’ve seen us posting a comment on our breakfasts here, on Facebook, or Twitter, and would like us to include the recipe, please let us know!

 On our Facebook page we’re asking our followers to vote for the recipes they would like to see included, or to suggest others that we didn’t mention. If you’re on Facebook, feel free to vote. Otherwise, please leave your votes in the comments below. We can’t promise to include every recipe that is mentioned, and we do have some that may be new to our guests, but we’ll be sure to see which are the most requested and try to get them into the book.

 We are hoping to have it available for purchase (both at the B&B and online) by late spring.

 Thanks for helping us make this cookbook something you’ll really enjoy!

  Scott & Ruth
