Korner Kottage Krunch Granola Tops Peanut Butter Banana Parfait

12 May 2010 No Comment

As the last days of 2009 come to an end I thought it would be fun to share some thoughts reflecting on the last couple of seasons here at the B&B. One thing we love about being innkeepers at the Korner Kottage Bed and Breakfast in Suttons Bay, Michigan is the constant feed back, recipes and suggestions we receive from our guests. Not to mention the many memories they give to us to recall.

One day a guest sent us a thank you note for the wonderful visit they had recently had with us. The nicest part of the note was how they had taken home a box of our Krunch home made granola to enjoy at home. They had done some experimenting and came up with an easy recipe that we have shared with many of our breakfast guests since then. I would love to share this simple, healthy treat with you.

It is called Peanut Butter Banana Krunch Parfaits…..for lack of a fancier name. You simply layer sliced bananas, vanilla yogurt that has been mixed with your favorite peanut butter and sprinklings of Korner Kottage Krunch granola in between each layer. If you serve this in a pretty stemmed parfait goblet it is truly quite elegant. And the best part is it tastes “divine”. It has become a favorite among our guests.

I also reminisce about the many couples who’ve been our guests who pop the question while visiting. I know much thought, anticipation and planning must go into the planning of these special visits at the B&B. It always warms our hearts to know that we have become part of “their story” now. In many cases we end up helping to plan the wedding at a nearby winery or attend the wedding and in some instances even host the bride and groom and attendants or family members here at the B&B. Nothing is more exciting to us than to have the happily married couples show up here at the end of their special day in their wedding attire for the first night of their honeymoon…or “mini~moon” as they sometimes call it. One memory stands out as the happy couple came to breakfast still in their wedding clothes as they had misplaced the key to the car holding all their suitcases and clothes. Just another day to wear that pretty wedding dress and tux one more time.

As the Christmas lights twinkle and shine we feel truly blessed to have touched the lives and made memories with some many guests who’ve visited us here. This is just the beginning as we look towards a new year in which to make many more memories for all those who pass through the Korner Kottage in 2010.
