Description: "If you visit Julie Rousseau's Samish Island and breakfast inn, you'll be offered a cup of steaming mint tea, a plate of cookies still warm from the oven, hours of relaxed, quiet conversation and an easy, contemporary hospitality that is Unique to our Skagit County lifestyle. It's the same cozy, personable style you'll note in the pages of the Alice Bay Cookbook." 

This Skagit Valley, nestled between the North Cascades and Puget Sound, is a rich tapestry of food, people and colors. 

Spring brings tulip fields blazing scarlet. Summer means berries of every kind hanging ripe and lumbering pea-viners creeping in from the field at dusk. As fall comes, plump ducks and geese settle onto scattered bays and lakes, and steelhead fishermen head up the icy Skagit. 

Julie Rousseau has collected the best of Skagit Valley Foods and recipes into The Alice Bay Cookbook. Julie is a native of the Skagit Valley and with her husband, Terry, owns the Alice Bay Bed and Breakfast on Samish Island. In the Alice Bay Cookbook you'll find a savory sampling of the Skagit Valley's best. Over 300 recipes include: 

  • Good Morning, Alice, a personal collection of Julie's special breakfast treats to welcome guests to the table. 
  • Unusual and beautiful appetizers, such as Angels on Horseback and Sea Pigs 
  • Luscious desserts and tender cookies from the cozy kitchens of Julie's neighbors 
  • Favorite recipes from the Black Swan Cafe, Cafe Europa, Calico Cupboard, Farmhouse Inn, Monkey Business, Mountain Song, Oyster Bar, and Rhododendron Cafe.
