Like Butter

We don't believe in margarine at Farm Suite. Say what you will about cholesterol and the size of my jeans, but we think butter is better. Especially when baking:

Oh thank you! Being a fitness Queen (so says my trainer) I have been hiding my need for real "butter" -- I'm happy to have good company in my tastes for the good stuff.

Not to mention the yummy preserves, adorable assistants & such ... my boys and I are missing out on so much.

*sigh* miss u my friend!!
