This was another great weekend to be in Wilmington, NC especially at the C.W. Worth House Bed and Breakfast. Margi and I are blessed with the best guests any innkeeper could ask for. All of our seven guest rooms were full this weekend with very special guests. Our repeat guests (our extended family) returned this weekend to celebrate various occasions and brought their friends and family with them, so every one of our rooms were full of repeat guests or their closest friends or family members. What an experience it was to be here and listening to their daily activities. The battleship, the farmers market, Circa 1922, Elijah’s, Front Street Brewery and of course…Noni Bacca Winery were all on their itinerary for the weekend. So, if you want to come back (I’m sure you do) why not share your little secret with your closest of friends. Our extended family gets the room of their choice on arrival no matter what room was reserved (as long as it is available). We look forward to seeing you all again and don’t forget to bring your friends!!

As we approach the Holiday season, remember that staying at a bed and breakfast can help make your travel plans more stress-free. At C. W. Worth House we start out each morning meal with fresh-ground coffee or tea, juice, fresh fruit cup and warm homemade muffins. Try this easy recipe or see our Holiday Special and come stay with us now through January 10th and get the R&R you deserve. I promise I will make these muffins.
Makes 1 dozen muffins
½ C. butter
¾ C. sugar
½-2/3 C. eggnog (or orange juice)
1 T. orange zest (optional)
2 C. flour
21/2 t. baking powder
½ t. salt
½ t. baking soda
1 t. vanilla
2 cups cranberries (frozen)
Chop frozen cranberries in food processor until chopped to consistency for muffins, chunky, not mushy.
In a medium bowl, cream butter and sugar. Add eggs, one at a time. Add vanilla and blend.
In another bowl, sift dry ingredients. Add dry ingredients alternately with eggnog/OJ to egg mixture.
Stir cranberries into batter, just until blended.
Fill greased muffin tins ¾ full with batter. Hint: We use a large ice cream scoop.
Bake at 375 degrees for 18-20 minutes until lightly brown on top and spring back when touched.
