Mill House Kitchen

Today was our first market day for the Mill House Kitchen.

It was one of the most humid days of the year, but we survived. It was so nice to meet the community people who came out. 

We plan to be there this Saturday 7am-12pm. Stop by and say "Hi".

Here are a few captures of our products and the process of making them.

Cobbler Cake

Need a quick and attractive cake for guests? Try this cobbler cake. A bit more formal than a regular cobbler and can still be served with ice cream.

The neat thing is you can pair any fruits. I've used this recipe with rhubarb and strawberries. The sky is the limit!

Cobbler Cake

1/2 cup butter, room temperature
1 1/2 cups sugar
4 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
pinch of salt
2 tsp. baking powder
2 cups flour
4 cups of fruit
1/4-1/2 cup sugar

Cream butter and sugar, add eggs one at a time, add remaining ingredients mixing just until combined. Spread in a greased (or line with parchment paper for easy removal) 9x13 pan and top with fruit of your choice. Sprinkle top with sugar. I gauge the amount by how sweet the fruit is. Bake at 350 for 45-50 min.

A realistic photo shoot...

I've been wanting to take Caroline's 1 year photos for awhile now and this evening the sun was setting just perfect over our lawn. So I ran got my camera and few dresses for her.

I was thinking of dreamy photos with the sun just setting over the hill with Caroline perched happily on her wooden chair.

The realistic version is me sweaty from me picking her up, sitting her on her chair, running back to snap a photo before she gets up again. Josh had just mowed the lawn so we had wet grass clumps to add to the mixture.

So here are the realistic photos of a busy, one year old.
