We grow this with the rain water that we capture and compost that we make. Any extra produce we have we make available to our guests. We use locally sourced eggs, cheese & pork."

Runner-Up: Best B&B Breakfast Tournament 2016

"Our Citrus-Berry Pizza recipe came about because of our family’s love of pizza (any kind)! The light and fluffy homemade pizza dough topped with a cream-cheese base is wonderful on its own, but the berry topping tastes great and looks beautiful too. We are fortunate to grow an abundant supply of organic fruits and vegetables at our Midwest bed and breakfast, including fresh berries. The addition of blood orange, one of my favorite flavors, adds a surprising depth of flavor to the berry topping, making this recipe a winner for everyone!

Finalist: Best B&B Breakfast Tournament 2015

"This is a delicious representation of what we, in Kansas, have to offer.  Kansas City is known for its BBQ and smoked meats.  My husband, Matt, has developed a special dry rub for his brisket preparation which is hard to beat!  Our B&B property includes 111 acres of land on which we grow as many fruits and vegetables organically that we can.  We try to incorporate our produce in essentially every meal we serve - including breakfast; so I developed this very fresh, chunky “salsa” which showcases several garden goodies.  Add farm fresh eggs to these ingredients and we have one awesome breakfast entree that we are proud to serve to our guests!"
