Come on, you know you guys only have poptarts for breakfast, on your way out the door with a cup of coffee in your hand. Take a few minutes (and this is easy as…well…pie!) to make this for yourselves and pretend you’re at a bed and breakfast. Think of us here in Eureka Springs when you do.

Bed and Breakfast Homemade Red Salsa

July 9th, 2013 by Sam Feldman

Homemade SalsaEasy Restaurant-style Salsa


1 can (28 oz) whole tomatoes with juice

2 cans (10 oz) Rotel diced tomatoes and green chilis

1/4 cup chopped onion

1 clove garlic, minced

1 whole jalapeno, quartered (leave out seeds if you want)

1/4 tsp sugar

1/4 tsp salt

1/4 tsp ground cumin

1/2 fresh cilantro (more to taste)

1/2 whole lime, juiced (I use 1-1/2 TB lime juice)


Combine all ingredients into a large food processor or blender – this will all fit just right in a Vitamix, will probably be too much for a regular-sized blender. Pulse until you get the consistency you like.

Gets even better with refrigeration!

Warmest regards,

Jeff and Nadara (Sam) Feldman – and Sophie, too!

Pumpkin Pancakes – A Great Winter Breakfast in Eureka Springs

February 6th, 2013 by Sam Feldman

A popular favorite here at the Bridgeford House for breakfast is Pumpkin Pancakes:

2 cups flour
2 TB firmly-packed brown sugar
1 TB baking powder
1 tsp salt
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
1/4 tsp ground ginger
1-1/2 cups milk
1/2 cup solid pack pumpkin
1 egg, slightly beaten
2 TB oil

Preheat griddle to 375. In large bowl, combine dry ingredients; mix well. In separate bowl, combine remaining ingredients. Add to flour mixture, stirring until just moistened (batter will be very thick).

For each pancake, pour 1/4 cup batter onto hot griddle. Using a spatula, spread batter into a 4-inch circle before mixture sets. Cook until surface bubbles and appears dry. Turn; continue cooking 2 to 3 minutes. Serve warm with butter and syrup.

Yield:  16 pancakes

Easy enough to make for yourselves but we’ll be happy to do it here for you!

Warmest regards,

Jeff and Nadara (Sam) Feldman – and Sophie, too!


Chicken & Cheese Lasagna Roll-ups – It’s What’s for Dinner!

December 23rd, 2012 by Sam Feldman

Instead of a breakfast recipe, how about a great dinner dish this time? Enjoy!

3 cups chopped or shredded chicken*
1 cup Ricotta Cheese
1/4 cup crumbled Feta Cheese
1/4 cup grated Parmesan Cheese
1/4 cup milk
1/8 tsp white pepper
8 lasagna noodles, cooked and drained
2 cups Spaghetti sauce (I make my own but you can use store-bought)

In medium bowl, combine chicken, cheese, milk and pepper. Spread 1/2 cup mixture on each lasagna noodle; roll jelly-roll fashion. In a 9- by 13-inch baking dish, spread 1 cup spaghetti sauce. Arrange lasagna rolls, seam-side down in sauce in baking dish. Top with remaining sauce. Cover and bake at 375 for 30 minutes or until hot.

*Shredded chicken ahead of time:

Put 3-4 chicken breasts in crock pot with 1/2 cup of water, 1/2 tsp salt, 1/2 tsp pepper and a 1/2 tsp garlic powder. Cook on low at least 3-4 hours, until tender and falling apart. Fork apart – can divide into freezer bags and keep for future use.

2013 Winter, New Year’s and Valentine’s Specials

December 9th, 2012 by Sam Feldman

Well, it’s finally starting to wind down, the hustle and bustle, the concerts and car weekends, Bikes, Blues and BBQ – you name it, Eureka Springs has it. But there’s a special season not many folks know about – the “secret season”. That’s the one where there aren’t tons of people here and lots of noise from the many visitors. It’s the one where you can just enjoy some down time, reading a book, working a jigsaw puzzle, playing games with your best friend, watching a movie while chowing down on some popcorn, but you get somebody else to cook for you and clean up after you – it’s the off season! Eureka is still very much open in the off-season, which is mid-December through mid-March. There are a few restaurants that do close for an extended period, but those are few. We have so many restaurants here for a town of 2200 that there is always somewhere good to eat. Shops are open and the town is still one of the loveliest to walk around in. Our winter’s are mild, so the chance of getting stuck here due to snow is unlikely (and ice even less likely!) so there’s no excuse -


we’re offering a great winter discount this year! Book one night with us Sunday through Thursday and you get one night free! If you want to come over the weekend, book one night and you can get the second night for 50% off! That does include all our amenities and our usual full-size breakfast and afternoon treats, so there’s really no reason to look elsewhere, we’ve got it all! (Not good for New Year’s or Valentine’s – see those specials below!)

Yes, we do have special deals for New Year’s and Valentine’s this year, since they both fall mid-week. For New Year’s, stay three nights, including New Year’s Eve, and receive one of those three nights for free! Plus we are providing a complimentary bottle of champagne in each room on New Year’s to ring in 2013.

For Valentine’s Day, stay 3 nights (2/14, 2/15 & 2/16) and receive the 3rd night free! A complimentary box of locally-made chocolates will be waiting for you in your room as well.

So come join us – soak in a Jacuzzi, have a picnic in front of the fire with your loved one or just nap – all the things you wish you had time for during the summer months but never seem to happen you can make time for now, you just have to get away from all those obligations. Come stay at the Bridgeford House and enjoy some peace.

Warmest regards,

Jeff and Nadara (Sam) Feldman – and Sophie, too!

Bikes, Blues and BBQ

September 23rd, 2012 by Sam Feldman

Lodging in Eureka Springs AR

Yep, they’re coming! It’s time for Bikes, Blues and BBQ over in nearby Fayetteville, AR. The event is Sept. 26-29 and has something for everybody at this motorcyclist’s enthusiast’s dream weekend, including more music than you can even stand listening to. Weather looks to be excellent, with cool nights and warm days – just like we like it here in NW Arkansas! Now folks in the know realize that B, B and BBQ is fun to do, but you really want to stay in Eureka Springs during that weekend – and may have already found out there’s nothing left in lodging by now over there anyway. Best places to ride is around Eureka Springs, just 45 minutes away from Fayetteville, so make your plans now to stay here. We have plenty of rooms and plenty of parking. There’s a Motorcycle Arts Show at the Best Western Inn of the Ozarks Convention Center and our great biker-friendly gorgeous historic downtown to visit. You can only do so much around Dickson Street in Fayetteville, but tons of stuff to do over here in Eureka Springs, so ride on over!

Warmest regards,

Jeff and Nadara (Sam) Feldman – and Sophie, too!
