Pumpkin Recipes From Andon-Reid Inn Bed and Breakfast

It's that time of year, at Andon-Reid Inn Bed and Breakfast, when I start my pumpkin baking. There are so many wonderful recipes to choose from. This morning for dessert, I served Pumpkin Tiramisu. Our guests raved about it. It's a very light tasting dessert with intense flavors. I found the recipe last year online at Epicurious. I thought that this recipe would be great to share just before all the holiday preparations begin.You need to make this recipe the day before so that it can set up.

Pumpkin Tiramisu
2 cups chilled whipped cream; 1 cup sugar; 1 (8-ounce) container mascarpone cheese; 1 (15-ounce) can pure pumpkin; 1 1/4 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice; 2 (3-ounce) packages halved ladyfingers; 1/4 cup Grand Marnier; 2 ounces crushed gingersnap cookies

Beat whipping cream and sugar until peaks form.Set aside. Mix the mascarpone cheese, pumpkin and spice; beat until filling is smooth then fold in whipped cream. Line bottom of 9-inch springform pan with 2 3/4-inch high sides with one package of ladyfingers,overlapping and crowding to fit. Use pastry brush and brush the ladyfingers with 2 tablespoons of Grand Marnier. Spread half of filling over. Repeat with second package ladyfingers, remaining 2 tablespoons Grand Marnier, and remaining filling. Smooth. Wrap tightly with plastic, then foil. Chill overnight. To unmold, run knife around inside edge of pan. Release pan sides; sprinkle with gingersnap cookies.
ENJOY!!

Suncoast Coast Porsche Club Visits Western North Carolina

This is our fourth year hosting the Suncoast Porsche Club of America from South Florida.Ron and I look so forward to their visit. The club spends two days in Western North Carolina touring the area. Andon-Reid Inn hosted a wine and cheese get together on Sunday evening and we built a huge bonfire outside with marshmallows and all. Hunger set in and we brought back pizza for everyone. After they finished eating the gang all went to our lower level and competed in the yearly tabletop shuffleboard and pool competition. Monday morning, after our humongous breakfast, the club took off on SR 215 towards Lake Toxaway for a champagne boat cruise around the lake and lunch to follow. They then continued on towards Highlands and back to Waynesville. It was another night of games and a nightcap or two at Andon-Reid Inn. Tuesday morning we were very to say goodbye to all our friends. They have already made their reservations for next year. Robbinsville via the Blue Ridge Parkway and Tail of the Dragon was on their itinerary for the day. Stay safe and have fun!

I've been meaning to do this exciting post a couple of weeks ago, but we have been so busy I haven't had a chance. Cynthia and Blair Ingles stayed with us in September for the sole purpose to adopt their baby. This was a first for us and an education all in itself. On September 24, 2009 a beautiful baby girl ,Corinne was born. Weighing in at 5pounds11ounces and 20 inches long. It was an amazing experience going through all the emotions of adoption. Our huge congratulations to Cynthia, Blair and Gavin!

WNC Magazine Chooses Andon-Reid Inn Trail Mix

On Thursday, Ron walked into the Haywood County Chamber Of Commerce and heard a "Congratulations" from the staff. He's looking around and said "for what?" They showed him an article in the magazine WNC Mountain Living in North Carolina, all about Andon-Reid Inn Spiced Trail Mix. He immediately called me up and said "do you know anything about this?" "Well...yes I do. I wasn't sure if the writer was going to use my recipe or not so I never mentioned it." Lo and behold there it is, a full page. What a great surprise. Here's the link if you want the recipe: Andon-Reid Inn Spiced Trail Mix
