A very large part of my innkeeping duties is cooking and baking. About three years ago I found and tweaked a scone recipe that has become my “signature” goodie at The Mill House. Serving them to my guests as an evening treat along with other homemade cookies, many guests encouraged me to sell them.
I did a lot of research with the state of Ohio to make sure I was legal in all I was doing. Now, along with being an innkeeper, I have a cottage industry baking scones, chocolate chip cookies, sugar cookies, and biscotti. The fun part of the business is that the proceeds from the baked goods benefit children’s missions. My goal is to help support a children’s charity on every continent. So far those who have purchased scones have paid for over a years worth of days at a woman’s and children’s hospital in Mali, West Africa, helped the people of Haiti, and helped send workers to a girls orphanage in Chile. Octobers proceeds will benefit a charity right here in Northwest Ohio called, “GIFTS” God Is Faithful To Supply. They help single mom’s and families set up housekeeping.
I have home baked goods available almost everyday from The Mill House front porch, or you can order them by calling 419-832-6455. Because I am an Ohio Cottage Industry the law does not permit me to ship out of state.
Not only will your heart be happy when it stays at The Mill House, your tummy will be too!!
