Debbie has been a professional baker for many years and was a highly regarded cake-baker and decorator on Cape Cod through much of the 1980s and '90s. She is very much the product of her ancestors, as are many of her recipes. Debbie's maternal grandmother was the owner of the Old Crocker House guest house on Cape Cod in the 50's and 60's. Debbie as a young girl used to clean and serve meals for the guests. Her paternal grandmother was a bakery chef. 

Debbie made all desserts for the Cummaquid Inn, and select desserts for the Country Inn, on Cape Cod including wedding cakes and many baked goods. Debbie's Mom was also a wonderful cook, and she has passed along her many New England recipes to her. 

Debbie brings her heritage and experience to the delights of her guests for breakfasts and afternoon sweets everyday at the B&B. From time to time, Debbie will be sharing some of the recipes for food she'll be featuring in the B&B. Here's one of her favorites:

French Breakfast Muffins

1/3 cup shortening, or butter (softened)
1/2 cup sugar
1 egg
1 1/2 cups flour
1 1/2 tsps. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. nutmeg
1/2 cup milk

1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 cup butter, melted

Heat oven to 350 degrees.

Grease 15 medium muffin cups (2 3/4" in diameter). Mix thoroughly the shortening, 1/2 cup sugar and the egg. Stir in flour, baking powder, salt and nutmeg alternately with milk.

Fill muffin cups 2/3 full. Bake 20 to 25 minutes. Mix 1/2 cup sugar with the cinnamon. Immediately after baking, roll puffs in melted butter, then in cinnamon-sugar mixture. Serve warm.
