From Our Kitchen

It’s no secret that both Patti and Bear know their way around the kitchen! In fact, almost every meal you have at the Crooked Oak Mountain Inn is prepared with love by both of them. Bear typically runs the griddle and Patti is the master of all things baked! Below are some recipes from the Kitchen here at the Inn. Each one of them is tried, tested, and true– and is sure to be a winner for your next special occasion.

Patti and Bear are happy to accommodate all diet restrictions such as vegan, vegetarian, gluten-free, etc. 

If you’ve been to the Inn, you know all about our “Magnificent Muffins” and how delicious they are. Don’t forget that we sell our muffin mix at the Inn, and would also be happy to ship a bag to you! Just give us a call to place your order. One bag is just $10 including shipping and makes one dozen muffins; simply add the wet ingredients, the fruit of your choice, bake, and pretend you’re in the mountains!

Patti is working on a cookbook with a lot of her favorite recipes as well as family and guest favorites. We’ll let you know when it’s finished and available!
