This is a beautiful time of year in Maine. The truckloads of pumpkins roll in from the countryside all over New England about this time. The local nurseries are preparing for Halloween with corn stalks, scarecrows and wheat sheaths. You will find most everyone decorating for the autumn season as soon as Labor Day is over.

When the cool mist rolls in from the ocean, it veils the entire coastline with fog....
rather magical I think!
This is one of our favorite inns to visit. 
Glen Close lived right down the road from this exclusive area of the cape and 
married right here!

You don't need to travel all the way to Maine to enjoy delicious blueberry pancakes for breakfast! This recipe is going to become a favorite of yours and in no time at all you will be ringing the breakfast chimes for your family to come running to the kitchen table!

These are made even more delicious by using blueberry syrup.
Our favorite is Wild Maine Blueberry Syrup from the Stonewall Kitchen!

1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  1/2 teaspoon salt
  1 tablespoon baking powder
  1 1/4 teaspoons white sugar
 1 egg
  1 cup milk
  1/2 tablespoon butter, melted
  1 cup fresh blueberries

In a large bowl, sift together flour, salt, baking powder and sugar. In a small bowl, beat together egg and milk. Stir milk and egg into flour mixture. Mix in the butter and fold in the blueberries.

Heat a lightly oiled griddle or frying pan over medium high heat. Pour or scoop the batter onto the griddle, using approximately 1/4 cup for each pancake. Brown on both sides and serve hot.


  1. The pancakes look delicious! I will have to try them!

    1. Really good Beth! So hope you enjoy them! Hugs to you!!

  2. Oh please, what is the name of this beautiful Inn?

    We can't drive all over, as we used to do, but always loved to stay in B & B's with original character.

    Even if we can't get to it, I'd love to look at their web site, and "dream"...

    And your mist-off-the-ocean photos! Oh, oh, oh... Beautiful. So beautiful...

    1. The Inn is Black Point Inn Tessa. It is more than a B&B, more like an exclusive resort. I have posted often of this inn in my Maine posts. We visted often. You can also expreience fine dining while overlooking the cape.


I so love receiving your thoughts and comments. I also hope you found something that made you smile.
