Recipe of the Month
Fresh Lime-Basil Sorbet
Lakewinds Country Manor Circa 1881, Niagara-on-the-Lake, ON
1 cup fresh-squeezed lime juice (8-10 limes)
1 cup water
1 cup simple syrup (1cup sugar + 1 cup water, boiled then cooled)
1 dozen basil leaves, whole
1 egg white (optional)
Combine all ingredients into a freezer-friendly container, and freeze 6-8
hours or overnight. Remove from freezer and allow to soften a little.
Put chunks of frozen mixture into a food processor and process until all
crystals have disappeared and mixture is smooth. Re-pack into container and
keep frozen until needed. This will keep for up to 2 months.
If you prefer a lighter, less icy sorbet, add 1 egg white during processing.

Reviews = Reservations
No doubt about it:
travelers want reviews, and they are more likely to stay somewhere that

An easy way to get more reviews on your listing is to add a badge, like the

"As much as I would like to sell gift
certificates that are exclusively for my inn, I realize that we are not
the perfect gift for everybody. This year, I gave everyone who enquired
about a gift certificate an option of a GC to be used exclusively with
me or good at any B&B in the BedandBreakfast.com membership. Many liked
the idea of having choices, and I sold them the BedandBreakfast.com gift
card. I got the commission up front, and I donít have to worry about the
liability. I also get most of the face value back should the gift card
be used at my inn. The process was quick and easy. I am very happy with
the results and will continue to offer BedandBreakfast.com cards as an
option." Mike Venturini, Munro House B&B Spa, Jonesville, MI
