Adventure Inn

We tell guests that our breakfast features ordinary breakfast tastes served in a way that most people don't take the time to do for themselves at home. We always have an artful fresh fruit course, usually served with our homemade granola. A hot entree follows. You'll have a choice of at least four or more juices. Tea and coffee made from freshly ground beans are available for early risers, and we keep it coming so long as there are cups wanting to be filled. When you make a reservation, we ask about breakfast preferences. What do you love? What do you hate? We especially want to hear about dietary restrictions. Despite having had not a single hour of culinary training, Nicholas and I make every effort to wow you with a breakfast made from scratch. Good news: Having operated our B&B since 2005, we are well past the awkward, experimental stage. We're always adding new recipes to our repertoire. We use fresh, local fruits and vegetables whenever possible. Breakfast is served either on the sunporch overlooking our landscaped yard and Lake Huron or in the dining room, where the view is similar. On summer days when weather is suitable, the round table on our deck is another popular breakfast venue. Since we have two guest rooms and consequently up to four guests, it's typical for guests to dine at the same mutually agreed time. Amazing coincidences and great stories so often are revealed over a shared breakfast. But on request we also offer private or in-room dining.

Susan's Brownie Pie

This easy pie is the only birthday cake my sister Susan ever requests. To share the recipe and yet hold back vital information, my mother neglects to mention that the cookies required are almost always found in a grocery's baking aisle, not with the other cookies. -- Sandy White, Adventure Inn

Measurements and Ingredients
Whites of 4 large eggs
16 Nabisco Famous Chocolate Wafers, finely crushed
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
1/2 tsp vanilla
dash of salt
8 ounces of whipping cream
Confectioner's sugar
1/3 cup Hershey's Semi-Sweet Mini Morsels

Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
Use spray oil to grease a 9-inch pie plate.
Whip egg whites in bowl with electric mixer until stiff peaks form.
Add sugar slowly while continuing to whip.
Stir in all other ingredients by hand.
Pour into prepared pie plate.
Bake 35 minutes or until tester inserted in center comes out clean. Let pie cool.
Whip cream with electric mixer until soft peaks form. Add confectioner's sugar slowly while continuing to whip.
Spread whipped cream over cooled pie with a knife or metal spatula. Garnish with chocolate mini morsels.

Tips and variations
Curled shavings of semi-sweet chocolate look more impressive than mini morsels.
Don't cop out and use Cool Whip. Susan wouldn't approve.

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 35 to 40 minutes

Yields: In our family, it's a six-slice pie. Your results may vary.
