Hawk Valley Retreat, Galena IL

Hello and happy Tuesday!  The blog is going to be HOPPING this week so be sure to check back often as we have a LOT to share with you!

Today we’re sharing with you some tasty food from a B&B here in Galena that is very near and dear to our hearts.  Hawk Valley Retreat is where we held our wedding almost a year ago!  This is a unique property in that it’s nestled in the hills of Galena so you truly feel like you’re in the country when you’re there, yet you’re only a 5 minute drive to downtown.   It’s so quite and serene and a wonderful place for a little getaway!

The owners of the property (Wendy and Hal) are two of the sweetest people you could meet and are gracious hosts to those that stay at their property!  The food they serve is delightful and Hal and Wendy work hard to make tasty breakfasts for everyone that stays here.  We’re starting with these apple turnovers that are truly melt-in-your-mouth!

This puff pastry did not want to stand for us at all!  It gave us such a hard time while we were trying to shoot it, but we finally got this shot that looks ALMOST like it did in person.  Hawk Valley Retreat, Galena Bed and Breakfast, Galena B&B, Galena IL, Illinois Getaway, UnPosed Photography Crepes, Hawk Valley Retreat, Galena Bed and Breakfast, Galena B&B, Galena IL, Illinois Getaway, UnPosed Photography Pancakes, Blueberry Pancakes, Hawk Valley Retreat, Galena Bed and Breakfast, Galena B&B, Galena IL, Illinois Getaway, UnPosed Photography

You can bet Jeff and I dove into those pancakes once we were done shooting them!  That blueberry sauce they make is so yummy!!!!

Wendy and Hal also offer some appetizer options that you can enjoy upon your arrival.  This is their artichoke dip which is melty and gooey in all the ways you want artichoke dip to be.
