March 5th, 2010 by Pamela Murski

More fun recently with another great Foodie Weekend at the B&B….heavy appetizers & local wine on Friday night, chili cookoff at Windy Winery and cooking class at the B&B Saturday. The guests particulary thought the Savory Blue Cheese Cheesecake (recipe below), Viennese Osso Buco and Warm Banana Souffle were especially big hits!  Lots of oohs and aawhs while savoring every bite…..
