"Best breakfast I have had on our two week road trip from
Minnesota to Dallas to Las Vegas to Gulfshores, AL!!!"
-- Jerry & Anita M. of Minnesota, February 2011
"Breakfasts were spectacular! Served in a gorgeous dining room with a huge dining room table and storied chairs, the atmosphere is so inviting with calm music, 2 huge picture windows and time to enjoy it with fresh coffee, tea, juice selection and the day's paper." -- Judy W. of Destrehan, LA, October 2010
"I could have slept well into the day. But, with the idea of Kelly's fabulous breakfasts popping into my head the minute my eyes opened, I couldn't
stay in bed another minute. Kelly is a fabulous cook, and had some great
ideas about what food to have at the reception in their huge dining room."
-- Mr. and Mrs. Michael Tuller, who were married
at Splendor Farms on October 18, 2008
"And our compliments to the chef, Kelly. Breakfast was excellent. My husband's favorite was the herbed cheese and ham omelet. He said it was the best omelet he has ever had in his life. My favorite was the french toast. And the fresh milk and butter from Smith Creamery was unbelievable. That was the best we have ever had." -- Crystal & Carl D., guests during Mardi Gras 2009
"Kelly, You are THE COOK! (wow) Breakfast was so above & beyond!!"
-- Todd and Richelle H. of Ponchatoula, LA
"Thank you for the lovely breakfast - it was so special!"
-- Billy & Patsy T., who spent their 27th anniversary
at Splendor Farms in May 2010
"Your breakfast was excellent - everything perfect!"

Recipe of the Month: December, 2012
CRANBERRY & VANILLA SCONES
I serve scones in all flavors, but these are my personal favorites. The trick is don't overwork your dough, and as an added bonus, you can freeze what you don't need! I make mine in a small palm-size triangle size. Easy to pick up and eat in two to three bites. Just a perfect few bites to start the morning with my fruit parfaits and home made granola and a cup of some good, strong, chickory-flavored French Market coffee (red can)! Hmmmm, it just doesn't get better than this!
Cranberry & Vanilla Scones
- 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 cup almond flour
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 tbsp baking powder
- 1/2 cup butter (chopped in chunks and chilled)
- 2 large eggs
- 2 tsps vanilla extract
- 2/3 cup milk (warmed with vanilla bean seeds - DO NOT BOIL)
- 1 cup dried cranberries (fruit chopped)
- 1 vanilla bean (split & scraped & put in milk)
Mix all together (dry ingredients together) then (wet ingredients together) and then, with pastry cutter cut into dry ingredients the butter until it resembles crumbs (big ones, not little ones! that would be overworking!) then gradually add wet ingredients a little at a time. Add dried cranberries and fold in.
Place dough on pastry board or granite counter top with lots of flour. Roll out in 1/2 thick circle and then cut in triangles.
Bake at 350 for 20 to 25 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm with fresh fruit parfaits! And, don't forget that coffee!
