Breakfast Blooms, a Muskoka B&B Cookbook with Folklore,
was nurtured by owners Gaye and George and encouraged to grow by guests from around the world who nestled down at Woodland Springs close to world famous Algonquin Park. Recipes with creativity, blossomed into a 50 item menu offered to guests daily, enticing them to return. They did, again and again. Soon guests lively experiences grafted with cottage folklore and became one...all belonging to this dear old place. A Mennonite background of slow cooking tradition, housed in an historic century old family cottage, gave birth to these Muskoka originals.

“Comfort and charm aside, there is even a more compelling reason
to stay with the Musselmans: the breakfasts include some original recipes like 'egg in a nest ' – a perfectly executed cheese soufflé with yolk suspended in the center and Mennonite maple glazed smoked ham nuggets.”

“I first heard then saw, the revved up testosterone machines right at our kitchen door, disregarding guest parking spaces above. Dressed in full black leathers, my worst fears morphed in broad sunlight: ‘Hell’s Angels’ sleeping under my mother’s hand stitched quilts!”
