This summer’s Stuffed French Toast was such a hit at breakfast and requested by so many guests, we decided to launch “how to” video. Now, I am no Ina Garten or Giada De Laurentiis so cut me some slack. I went a little overboard with the powered sugar at the end..so my daughter has told me. And the door bell rang during the shoot so my griddle got a little too hot….but all in all it was fun. So much so, we decided to do a video about Pinecrest Bed and Breakfast, which will be launching very soon..so stay tuned.
Back in the kitchen, we’ve moved past Summer’s peaches and are into what Autumn has to offer. To embrace the change of season, I have prepared this recipe with a mixture of apple butter whipped cream cheese and some delicious local Hendersonville apples. Truth be known, I did not pick the apples myself, but you can do just that at a number of farms right now. Well, if you are not hungry after watching me prepare this scrumptious breakfast, I need to reconsider my cooking show aspirations.

Moogfest is the annual event that honors the remarkable vision of Robert Moog and his amazing musical inventions that changed the course of music. Moogfest is a 3-day, multi-venue event held in Asheville, NC – the place Bob Moog called home for the last 30 years of his life. The 2011 festival will be held the weekend of October 28 – 30. Moogfest will host artists and audiences from throughout the world in different venues across Asheville’s beautiful, historic downtown.
Moogfest celebrates Bob Moog’s legacy as a sonic pioneer, which will be the thread that unites the festival’s rich array of musical offerings. While the wide range of Moog instruments – the Minimoog Voyager, the Little Phatty, the Etherwave Theremin, Moogerfoogers, and the Moog Guitar – will play prominent roles throughout the festival’s events, the artists performing will certainly not be limited to those who create their work on Moog instruments. Instead, artists will be chosen for their role in creating unique and groundbreaking musical experiences that embody the essence of Bob Moog’s visionary and creative spirit.
In addition to fantastic concerts by renowned performers of all kinds, Moogfest offers opportunities to engage with the artists in panel discussions, question and answer sessions, and workshops. There will also be interactive experiences for the audience to explore their own musical creativity with a variety of Moog instruments. The festival also offers visual art exhibitions, installations, and film screenings throughout the weekend.
Tickets are available online via Ticketmaster through the Moogfest web site, as well as through the Asheville Civic Center Box Office. The ACC box office is located at 87 Haywood Street, Asheville, NC 28801 and is open weekdays from 10:00AM – 5:00PM Eastern. You may purchase tickets via phone by calling (800) 745-3000.

Get ready to see the world in a new and different way. Hidden in a secluded mountain cove only 20 minutes north of Asheville and a short drive from our Asheville Bed and Breakfast, the Navitat Canopy Adventures zip line canopy tour. Navitat Canopy Adventures takes guests on a thrilling and educational adventure high in the trees of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Fast, smooth zip lines stretch high above the forest floor; skillfully crafted platforms nest seamlessly (and securely) in large beautiful native trees; and sky-bridges span forest sections teeming with natural wonder and leading to magical surprises like a grand old blooming Tulip Poplar tree.
Navitat Asheville was recently named “one of the best in the nation” in USA TODAY’s “10 Great Ziplines Across the USA!” I recently went on an afternoon canopy tour and have to say it was a blast. There were 8 participants in our group and 2 guides. I thought that I would be scared and nervous….but not all. The views were spectacular and I got to exercise my inner Tarzan (or Jane in my case). I entered feeling a bit apprehensive about sailing through the forest, but left with my face hurting from grinning so much.

From farm to bed and breakfast table, Asheville’s Pinecrest Bed and Breakfast works with local farmers to bring you delicious and healthy local food. Strawberries have come in early at Full Sun Farm and we are serving them up at breakfast. These ripe, red, juicy fruits come from our friends at the farm which is located in Sandy Mush (about 45 minutes from Asheville).
This small, family farm is run by Alex Brown and Vanessa Campbell. They reside on the farm in an old farm house with their two young daughters, Ada and Belle. Their mission at the farm is to nurture their family and community by growing beautiful, healthy produce through good land stewardship. They apply organic farming methods to grow vegetables, berries, and cut flowers on their 17 acre farm. They also have three greenhouses where they start their transplants from seed and grow tomatoes, melons, and cucumbers. All of their produce is sold locally and Alex and Vanessa are well known at the farmer’s markets.
When visiting this Asheville NC Inn this summer you will get the chance to taste their delicious blueberries in our Blueberry Waffles, their vegetables in out Farmers Market Frittata and the lovely summer squash in our zuchini bread. As Julia used to say: “Bon Appetit!”

The weekend of May 27th there is not one but two fabulous festivals. Whether you’re a hardcore athlete or a newbie trying an event for the first time, the annual Mountain Sports Festival in Asheville offers something for you. From intense trail running to laid-back disc golf, from adventure racing to the Iron Kids events, from high speed track racing to whitewater kayak clinics… there is something here to entertain and challenge you!
Or you can just hang out, enjoy music and food while watching the competitions. Visit with vendors and test out products, and get lots of great information for enjoying the outdoors.
The Mountain Sports Festival is a weekend event that celebrates community, athletics and local business, while showcasing the terrain, environment and unique culture of Asheville and the surrounding mountains. The Mountain Sports Festival is organized by a group of community oriented volunteers dedicated to presenting a well balanced series of events that encourages participation on all levels. It features professional and amateur level competitions in paddling, adventure racing, running, cycling, climbing, skateboarding and many other activities.
The heart of the festival located at Carrier Park on Amboy Rd. along the French Broad River in West Asheville features entertainment, food, souvenirs, clinics and demonstrations
Also May 28th you can take a drive to Brevard for the The White Squirrel Festival. It’s two days of nutty, family fun over the Memorial Day Weekend. The music is the major showcase, giving prominence to national and even international performers who are connected to Transylvania County. This year BonePony and Jupiter Coyote headline the Saturday and Sunday concerts, along with 16 other FREE concerts! It’s no wonder that last year the White Squirrel Festival was recognized by the Southeast Tourism Society as one of the TOP 20 May festivals in the entire region.
Pinecrest Inn Bed & Breakfast is a hop, skip and a jump from all the festival action this summer. Stay at our Asheville Inn and enjoy sumptuous breakfast and luxurious suites at affordable room rates. Call 888-811-3053 or visit www.pinecrestbb.com for details and reservations.
