Our Recipes

At Rocky Mountain Lodge, our Bed and Breakfast Inn near Colorado Springs and Manitou Springs, our signature, gourmet 3-course breakfasts are always a highlight of our guests stay with us, and will often keep bellies full until mid afternoon or so. You will enjoy a good cup of coffee, tea, cider or cocoa, juice, and delighted with a fruit course, a main entree which rotates from a savory egg dish one day, to a sweet, bread dish the next day, and as a treat, we serve dessert for breakfast! 

After years of guests asking us for our recipes and if we had a cookbook, Debbie wrote her Recipe book that says Favorite Recipes Rocky Mountain Lodge & Cabins MORE Favorite Recipesfirst cookbook in 2008, and a second version in 2017 since the first one sold out. Our cookbook has 500 recipes in it including Breakfasts, Fruit dishes, Appetizers, Soups & Salads, Breads, Main Dishes, Veggies & Sides, Desserts galore, cookies & candies, and a bit of This & That. It also includes an e-book version so you can download it on your tablet, computer, or smart phone. You can have those recipes with you when you’re at the store and need to figure out what to make for dinner that night, look at the recipes and grab your ingredients on the go.

Grandma Tillie’s Pie Crust

There is nothing more melt in your mouth than a homemade Pie Crust. I had a love-hate relationship with homemade pie crust for years until I got my husband's Grandma Tillie's Pie Crust recipe.

Granny's Chocolate Chip Cookies

Granny’s Chocolate Chip Cookies

Who doesn't love chocolate chip cookies?! When I got married I made chocolate chip cookies for my new husband after finding out chocolate chip cookies were his favorite cookie. I used the recipe on the back of the chocolate chip bag and his response was "they're not my Mom's chocolate chip cookie".
