The James Manning House Bed & Breakfast, located in the Lake Region of the Pocono Mountains, welcomes visitors to Historic Wayne County, Bethany and Honesdale, PA.  Guests will find our 194 year old federal-style house to offer all modern amenities along with charming, eclectic antique and country furnishings.  We offer common rooms for reading or conversation, gardens for strolling, and of course comfortable sleeping quarters with private baths.  Our hot, hearty breakfasts are prepared fresh from local farm produce and our own garden harvests when available.

The area offers much to do from historic museums, to the great outdoors of the Delaware River.  Visitors, young and old, enjoy the Wayne County Historical Society, Dorflinger Glass Museum and Wildlife Sanctuary, the Roebling Bridge, and Zane Gray Museum just to mention a few.  For the adventurous, raft down the Delaware, hike Prompton State Park, ski Elk Mountain, zip line, snow shoe, bike, fish the lakes or hunt the state game lands.  Maybe your visit includes a concert at Bethel Woods, the original site of Woodstock, or one of Honesdale’s street events, such as Roots and Rhythm, Harvest and Heritage Days, Arts and Antiques weekend, or just a great event at the Cooperage or Ritz Theater in nearby Hawley, PA.

Summer Veggie Cakes

Our guests have found these great squash cakes to be a delicious side to the breakfast entree.  They are quick and easy to make.  A great vegetable dish at the supper table as well, and wonderful way to cook all those squash and zucchini from your garden or those the friendly neighbor wants to unload.2015-08-03 09.55.462 c. shredded summer squash, or zucchini           ½ c. mozzarella cheese, shredded       ½ c. parmesan cheese, grated                            ½ c. flour                                                  2 lg. eggs, beaten                                                  2 T. fresh parsley, chopped            Chopped onion, or fresh chives to taste               Salt and pepper

Mix all ingredients together in a large bowl. Form into 6-8 patties.

Pour 2 Tbs. olive oil in large frying pan, heat over medium high heat.  Gently drop each patty into oil and brown, approx. 2-3 minutes, flip and repeat.

Patties can also be browned on a griddle, sprayed with cooking spray.2015-08-03 08.31.54

I’ve found that as summer progresses and the squash grow larger, we prefer to peel and remove the seeds for a better texture.  I’ve also used Weber Veggie Grill Seasoning in place of the onion.  Some people prefer to use minced onion.  As you can see there are some variations, so create for your tastes, and enjoy!
