As I’ve been working to pull all the elements together for the Farmer’s Pantry(BTW it is going to be awesome!) It has provided so many opportunities for connection, growth, and new experiences. My sweet daughter Ella, 9 years old and currently going by the name Molly, was a bit under the weather this Monday morning and needed a day at home.

We decided to make the best of it with Chai Lattes, Ginger Syrup and a whole Lotta love! She jumped into the photography, modeling and interviewing and we had a blast working together all morning. The new tea offering from Old Friends Farm combined with their ginger syrup and some steamed milk was the perfect inspiration for the morning.

The Old Friends Farm Ginger Syrup is a delicious way to do a twist on Wheatberry Bakery classic…“Maple Ginger Granola Crunch!”
