Making a multicourse breakfast for guests every day gives Kay Standish a chance to be creative.
In April, her ingenuity was rewarded when she was named a runner-up in the Southeast Region of the 1999 Jones Dairy Farm Bed & Breakfast Breakfast Recipe Competition.

Standish shares innkeeper responsibilities with her husband, Al, at The Carriage Inn in Charles Town, W.Va.
A total of 2,400 member inns from Professional Association of Innkeepers International were invited to compete in five regional categories - West/Southwest, Northwest, Midwest, Southeast and Northeast, according to a press release from Jones Dairy Farm. About 100 inns competed in the Southeast Region, which includes the Mid-Atlantic states, the East Coast down to Florida and across to Louisiana and Arkansas, according to Scott Sheff, a senior account executive for Laughlin-Constable, a public relations agency in Milwaukee.
The original breakfast or brunch recipes included products from Jones Dairy Farm, a family-owned processed meat company in Fort Atkinson, Wis., that was founded in 1889. They were judged on color, taste/flavor, texture and use of Jones Dairy Farm product by Cooking and Baking Association of Bed-and-Breakfast and Country Inns and its founder, Gail Greco.
