Grandma Miller comes to town and wows 'em!

Today was the day that we finally got to enjoy the presence and company of Grandma Miller - with her daughter and granddaughter!  Grandma Miller has inadvertently been feeding us for the last couple of years since her granddaughter began her PhD work here.  Little did she know that by loading up said granddaughter with food she would develop such a fan base of aficionados of her baked goods. Grandma Miller did not disappoint and she went for broke. That oven must have been busy for several days because she showed up with all her special delights including zucchini bread, banana bread, chocolate chip cookies and her cake version of shoo fly pie. This is a nice adaptation of the recipe and the result is a lot lighter than the normal pie.

Anyway, it was standing room only for this special guest and in the process I'm sure she developed even more admirers.  Everyone was excited to be photographed with her! We are indeed thrilled that she made the journey and hopefully she will follow up with her promise to return around Thanksgiving with some of her specialties from that season. We can't wait! We heart you, Grandma Miller!
