On the back steps of the kitchen, in the tropical paradise of an idyllic atoll off Dangriga, Belize; Phillip Matinez shares a family favorite, Sweet Potato Pudding Recipe (known in Belize as “Pone”). It became a favorite of those of us paddling for pleasure with Island Expeditions in the turquoise waters of the Caribbean.
When guests descend for breakfast at the Hillsdale House Inn in Annapolis Royal Nova Scotia, they smell fresh bread. Fresh, brown bread made with care and attention --- this is the bread they smell.
In my first year as an Innkeeper I began a tradition that became a trademark in my bed & breakfast rooms – bedside cookies. While guests were out enjoying the evening, I would slip into their room with a plate of warm oatmeal cookies, straight from the oven.
This is perhaps my most frequently used recipe. It’s easy, versatile, and provided you don’t forget anything (it can happen to the best of us) they’ll be picture perfect every time.
