Cookie Recipe from Our New Wisconsin B&B Cookbook

Thursday, November 29th, 2012

We’re fond of saying Wisconsin B&Bs are never cookie-cutter but many do serve cookies!  Care to add a new cookie recipe to your holiday repertoire?  How about this one from Hamilton House B&B in Whitewater for Boiled Cookies.

2 cups sugar 1/3 cup cocoa 1 stick butter ½ cup milk 1 tsp vanilla ½ cup peanut butter 3 cups quick oats

Combine sugar, cocoa, butter and milk in saucepan over low heat.  Bring to a boil and continue boiling for exactly 1½ minutes. This part is important or they won’t set up. Remove from heat. Add vanilla, peanut butter and oats. Mix well. Spoon onto wax paper and cool. Try to wait until set before serving!

 

Yes, we know these aren’t the “Boiled Cookies” from the recipe … but rest assured that with Hamilton House B&B’s breakfast looking (and tasting) this scrumptions, the cookies will be as delicious.

Marathoners Make a Beeline to Wisconsin B&Bs

Tuesday, June 19th, 2012

Here’s a trend that’s coming on strong – amateur athletes choosing Wisconsin B&Bs when traveling for 5Ks, half-marathons, marathons, sprint triathlons, adventure races, well, you get the gist.  Makes sense when you consider B&Bs are in a rather unique position to customize just about anything a “weekend warrior” would need to be in peak condition for the competition.  In Door County, the Door County Lighthouse Inn offers to-go nourishment for the athlete and coffee cake for the athlete’s support team.  At the Hamilton House B&B in Whitewater, innkeeper Kathleen Fleming says the runners who participate in the Ice Age 50 and Kettle 100 may schedule a massage with the inn’s massage therapist, but most take ice baths in the inn’s huge tubs after the race!  If you’re heading to Oshkosh for the August 5 Olympic and Sprint Triathlon, the Brayton B&B has upscale bath amenities and beds to provide great comfort after the race.  

Could there possibly be a better way to unwind after a race? (we'll include the rat race too!) Innkeeper Kathleen at the Hamilton House B&B in Whitewater says it's your choice of whirlpool therapy - steaming soothing bubbles or tingling ice for sore muscles.
