I love the way it is broken down in states, interesting to see the difference between regions.

Format: Paperback
At first, the sheer number of recipes in this cookbook will overwhelm you. Then, flipping to the index in the back you will find that you are able to look up dishes based upon their main ingredient (e.g. chicken, zucchini, potatoes).
We use this cookbook far more than any other book in the kitchen. Of all the dishes we have made, I can only recall not liking one.
It's naturally heavy on breakfast and brunch foods, but it has something to satisfy anyone's tastes - desserts, main courses, appetizers, beverages.
The biggest pain with this book is that it is separated by bed and breakfast rather than by kind of dish. This makes it rather time consuming to find a recipe. One has to turn to the index and then go down through the list flipping to various pages to find the "perfect" chicken dish, for example.
Separating the recipes out by type would have saved the recipe searcher a fair amount of time.
Still, it's a wonderful cookbook. I'm glad we have a copy. WARNING: This cookbook contains absolutely no photos of the food, so those who like seeing what the dish will look like will not enjoy this book.

My sister gave me this cookbook for my birthday a few years ago. When I found out there was a Volume 2, I rushed right out and bought that one, also. You can tell by looking at both books that they are the ones I reach for most often, because both of them are battered beyond belief!

This cookbook is great !!!! i borrowed it from a friend and never gave it back (bad!!!) but it really is a great source for entertaining. Fanstastic and easy recipes. A good way to impress your friends with your cooking. Also what i like is they usually have serveral recipes for similar dishes so lets say you want to make scalloped potatoes - you can look at them all and then kind of use the info to make your own variation with the pieces of the recipes you think sound good. Also it is good if you are doing theme parties. I love asian cooking we were having a party where i needed to bring an asian salad - they have like 5 different types. and they arent what you would expect. Note this is just not breakfast foods - all types of cooking are in this book and from all types of us regions.

I use this book much more than I thought I would when I bought it. I found some great recipes to use when having company (or not!) The ingredients are mostly easy to find and the directions are relatively easy. I guess if you get up every morning to run a bed and breakfast you don't have time for fussiness! Highly recommended!

I can't you how many times I've gone to my copy of this cookbook for recipes... it's the one I reach for first! It's like taking a trip around the country without leaving my home! VERY user friendly format, too!
I love the small-sized recipes that many of the B&B's and Inns use... hubby and I are 'empty nesters' most of the year with our sons away at college so there's no need to make big meals or we'd be eating leftovers forever.

I received this cookbook as a gift from my husband when the first edition was published. I liked it so much and used it so often I continue to give it to friends every year. If I am in a quandary as to what to prepare for company, or just looking for several versions of an old classic, this is usually my first and last stop. I especially like it for pastry, cake and breakfast recipes (not surprisingly). When we are travelling, I also use it as a guidebook!

My husband just surprised me with a weekend at one of the B&B's in this book. We were getting away for our 8th year wedding anniversary. And he bought me a copy of this cookbook he wants me to make some of the same dishes that we were treated to during our stay. This is something that is such a special treat. I LOVE to make dishes for our family when they come to visit. I like to see the looks on their faces when they are treated to dishes that are simply out of this world. There are just no other words to explain the recipes in this cookbook. You'll always want to keep it handy. You won't find any recipes in here that require alot of hard work or foods that most of us don't have in our kitchens everyday.

I received this book (vol 1) from my daughter and find it to be the most used book in my collection. I know that the recipes are tried and true , since InnKeepers are expected to put out good tasty food that is made with love. I have counted on this book for last minute planning and I've not been disapointed.
