Improve Your Mental Wellness During the Holidays: Visit a B&B!

Pumpkin Brownies_stonewall_jacksonwebsm.jpgJust as important to one’s well-being as diet and fitness, is mental wellness.  In this hectic time of the holidays when the focus seems sometimes to be on the commercial aspect, a great way to savor friendships and family is to stay for a night or a weekend at a bed and breakfast.  If you can’t make it to one, at least you can feel like you are at home by trying some of their homey recipes.  The Stonewall Jackson Inn in Harrisonburg, VA, offers this recipe for Pumpkin Brownies.  You can be assured your home will have the delicious aroma of a visit to a country inn with this recipe.  For other ideas on where to stay or recipes to try, visit The Bed & Breakfast Website:
