Romantic THINK Inns Celebrate the Season with Holiday Recipes and Events for Special Year-End Getaways

COLUMBUS, Ohio, Nov. 14, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- The holiday season brings traditions old and new at a small group of top-ranked country inns and bed and breakfasts in Kentucky, Virginia, Ohio and Michigan. The innkeepers love to make the season extra festive and memorable for their guests, including cooking seasonal recipes and special events. And they enjoy sharing their recipes for guests to try at home.

Six innkeepers and chefs have just posted their most requested holiday recipes at, including oyster gratin, roast turkey, cornbread dressing and gravy, sauteed Brussels sprouts with balsamic glaze, yam and apple casserole, cream corn, pecan sweet potato pie and gingerbread cake. Plus, they share 30 additional recipes, ranging from country ham to cranberry relish. The inns are members of the prestigious Time Honored Inns Nationally Known (THINK) association.
