July 2014
 
Summer Is Here!
Summertime is a great time to sit back, relax and enjoy life.  Slow down, sit on the back porch with a cold glass of iced tea and read that book you've been meaning to get to for a while.  We think we can help you do just that.
  • Looking for a quick get-away this summer?  
  • Need to get out of the city for just a few days?
  • Want to avoid the tourist rush on the weekends?
If you answered yes to any of these questions then we have a special you should consider.      Our A Summer Getaway! might just the ticket. 
Stay with us for any two nights Monday through Thursday and receive 10% off your room rate.  This offer is only valid for new reservations and not valid Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights.
 
When you book on-line select the A Summer Getaway! package or give us a call at 434-923-8892
 
Whatever you are doing this month we hope you enjoy it!

Red, White & Blue Cookies - just in time for Independece Day celebrations
We make cookies for all holidays and celebrations.  In fact we bake fresh batches of cookies every single day.  However there is something special about decorating cookies for the 4th of July.  This year we went with a red, white & blue star cookie.  Hope you enjoy them!
 
Ingredients:                                          
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks)unsalted butter, room temperature
1 cup granulated sugar
1 large egg
1/2 teaspoon lemon extract
zest from one large lemon

Directions:
Combine the flour, baking powder and salt in a small bowl, whisk.
 
In a large mixing bowl, beat the butter until creamy with an electric mixer.  Gradually add the sugar while mixing at medium speed until pale and fluffy (approximately 5 minutes - less if using a stand-mixer).  Beat in the egg, lemon extract and the zest until just combined.
 
Lower speed of the mixer to the slowest setting.  Add flour mixture and mix until just combined.  Do not overmix as this can cause the cookies to be tough.
 
Form the dough into a circle and wrap in plastic wrap.  Chill dough in refrigerator for a minimum of 2-4 hours.  The dough can be prepared ahead and refrigerated overnight before using.  Sometimes I make the dough and put it in the freezer (double wrapped) until ready to use.
 
Preheat oven to 350F.  Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
 
To roll out dough, lightly flour your counter and rolling pin.  Roll dough to approximately 1/8-1/4 inch.  Cut with cookie cutter of your choice and place on parchment lined baking sheet.
 
Bake for 10 minutes or until lightly golden.  Let cool on sheet for a couple of minutes then transfer to a cooling rack.
 
Frost when cookies are completely cooled.
