So who is Ginny you ask? She was the owner's mother in-law. She was a beautiful, loving, courageous, affectionate, gentle woman who passed of Ovarian cancer at the young age of 52. Her two daughters reminisce as they recall favorite childhood memories of the amazing smell throughout the house of yummy, homemade pancakes made by Ginny with love every Sunday morning. Ginny, a nickname for Virginia, our family name of four generations is an old-fashioned American name that just seemed to fit! Today, we love to share Ginny's tradition with all of you! A little secret to share, look for ladybugs when you visit. They are a little touch of sunshine to share a smile!
