Bet You Can’t Eat Just One!

We are asked for the recipe for our peanut butter chocolate chip cookies so often I thought I would post it. Just remember one, one and one: one cup of peanut butter, one cup of granulated sugar and one egg. Throw in whatever additives you want – chocolate chips, raisins, nuts, etc. Bake at 350 degrees for 12 minutes. Even good for gluten free diets. Enjoy!

Quite a Specimen!


We are very fortunate to have a lovely 80-plus-year-old “Cotinus coggygria” more commonly known as a Smoketree or Smokebush.  We have had so many guests comment on it we wanted to share this information as it is quite a specimen.  It’s contorted trunk catches everyone’s eye.  The flowers are really ineffective.  The real show stopper occurs as a result of the hairs (pubescence) on the pedicels and peduncle of the large 6-8? long and wide panicle.  The “hairs” or “smoke” on the tree often pass through several color changes, but at their best, June into August, are a smokey pink.  So if you are planning a trip to Bay City, stop by the Historic Webster House.  We would love to have you see it.
