This B&B was set up on a mountain in Sevierville, Tenn., close to Pigeon Forge.   This was only the 2nd B&B we had been to, but were just as impressed with "The Calico Inn" as we were with the first place we stayed at last year.  Our hosts were so warm, caring hosts and went beyond the norm to make sure we were comfortable and felt at home.  The whole upstairs of this log cabin was open to the guests, to use for whatever they needed.  There was a full-sized kitchen we had access to, as well as a t.v. in the living room.  Our room........(and I can't believe I didn't get the beautiful picture of the swans on the bed that our host had formed out of our towels.  Chocolates on the pillows........absolutely 5-star breakfasts!  We spent a lot of time sitting on the front porch in the big welcoming rockers just relaxing and taking in all the beauty.  We did go to Dollywood one day, but were wore out by the time we got back.  I'd like to go again and just stay there, with maybe a few trips into Pigeon Forge to shop.......but not Dollywood again!  Just too much walking.

GREAT RECIPE FROM Good Morning Mary Sunshine!

I had recently been on Mary Sunshine's blog and found a photo of her mother's recipe for Boston Brown Bread.  I copied it (hope you didn't mind), and made it this afternoon!  I made two big loaves, and as you can see from the picture, this is all that is left....hahahaha.........no, we didn't eat the whole other loaf.  Sent it over to my brother and sister-in-law.  

If you have never visited Mary Sunshine's blog, I'm sure she would love for you to stop by and meet her and Handyman, and see the beautiful table runner she made!
And, if you want, I'll bet she wouldn't mind if you tried this recipe out yourself.  You won't be sorry:)
