Did you know that you can substitute yogurt for the sour cream in our scones. You can use flavored yogurt if you want to play with the flavor a little, (at your own risk)😉

With a bag of Ultimate Vanilla Scone Mix you can use one of many different flavors to add a little flair or you can accentuate the flavor or a Blueberry Lemon Scone with either blueberry or lemon yogurt, etc. I often prefer Noosa brand because of the intense flavors, delicious!!! But we have had customers use all kinds. I see Noosa has been experimenting with flavor combos... hmmm. We shall see...

I tried to take a picture, but too many were eaten by the time I found my phone...🤣🤣🤣. These are the quickest and fluffiest biscuits, they actually made about 10 more than are in this bowl. The bacon was just delicious so I had to add it!

Easter is here and with everyone home right now, we thought we would show you some different things people normally do for Easter all over.

Kite Flying - Bermuda
The people in Bermuda aim high for Easter: kite flying is everyone’s favorite pastime during the holidays. Bermudians make their own kites with wooden sticks, colorful paper, and intricate designs. All of this is topped off with a special tissue called “hummers” that then makes a buzzing sound, aka the sound of Bermudian Easter. Horseshoe Bay Beach is filled with people gathered to attend the annual Kite Festival on Good Friday.

Easter is here and with everyone home right now, we thought we would show you some different things people normally do for Easter all over.

The Butter Lamb

An Easter butter lamb is simply butter molded into the shape of a lamb. Introduced to the United States by Eastern European Catholic immigrants, the tradition can be traced back to Poland (as well as Slovenia and Russia).

Baranek wielkanocny (the Polish name for this delicacy) has distinctive details of religious meaning for the holiday. There is specific meanings given to the lamb itself.

*The actual lamb represents Jesus
*The red ribbon around it's neck represents his death.
*There is a little banner that says "Alleluia" referring to his
resurrection.

In many Russian, Polish and Eastern European Catholic Homes, this Lamb is an important part, almost the start, of Easter. In tradition, families would mold their own seated lamb out of butter and take it to church on Holy Saturday to be blessed at Swieconka (“the blessing of the Easter baskets”). The butter lamb would be carried in a basket along with rye bread, ham, colored eggs, kielbasa, chocolate and other food items to be eaten during the Easter feast. All part of a heritage still being passed down this day. These lambs are sold in areas with Eastern European communities.

Easter is here and with everyone home right now, we thought we would show you some different things people normally do for Easter all over.

The German tradition of Osterbrunnen—decorating public wells and fountains with elaborate greenery and Easter egg décor—only began about a century ago. It’s said that German villagers wanted to honor both Easter and the gift of water, which also represents life and renewal. Neighboring villages began to compete to see which of them could create the most fanciful fountains, and by 1980, approximately 200 villages were participating in the event. Here are some images from all over Germany.

We thought we would give you a bit of comedy... here is an example of the correct way to hug a duck. In case you were wondering... Something to keep in mind for when the 'shelter in place' is lifted! (It's from a show a couple years ago, I just found the pictures)
First you admire the duck, then you gently approach and pull it in close, finally you do the over-the-shoulder duck chuck and squeeze! Works every time.

Did you know that you can make our pancakes in advance... make the whole batch. Any of them you don't eat you can put into freezer bags and put into your freezer for another time. Then, when you have a hankering for a pancake... you just pull one out of your handy dandy ziploc bag in the freezer, pop that baby in the toaster and whammo, you have yourself a deliciously tasty Papa Ray's Pancake! We have quite a few customers that do this because one mix makes more than they can handle at one setting. This way they can have 'Pancakes on Demand'. (Magnificent, isn't it) 🤣🤣

Plus, now that we are doing free shipping... it's like you are at a show again. Browse through our webstore, pick 6 or more of your favorite items, put the code: CARE in at checkout and you will receive free shipping.

We miss seeing you all at the shows. If you have a minute or two in your day please feel free to post a picture or two on our page showing how you are keeping busy during this quarantine.
(Images are of: Derek Blumenschein's Pancake Masterpiece, Blueberry Pancake, Sourdough Pancake w/ Bacon, German Apple Pancake, Dutch Baby plus there is more to be had....)

People Are Spending Time With Friends On Video Chats While Stuck At Home Because Of The Coronavirus

Hey there everyone!! Hoping this finds you all in good health and spirits. We wanted to remind you all that even though we are all on a quarantine of sorts, some folks out there are alone and could use some socializing via social media! There are apps that you can download that will let you group connect and keep you social in a time where getting together physically is just not wise! Maybe you can all have a bake-off with some Papa Ray's mixes!! Who knows... The article we posted has some examples of different apps and ways to connect. Remember to stay in touch and check in on your loved ones! Keep each other safe, stay well and stay vigilant.

Many of our friends and customers suffer from invisible diseases. They are not easy to see, not easy to discern with the naked eye but they are feeling the effects of them every day. When they say the elderly and more vulnerable, many fall into the following categories. We hope you are all taking care of yourselves, staying safe and well. Please remember when you are staying inside you are protecting yourself and many more!

Quick lesson about autoimmune diseases. It takes an average of three years and five doctors for a person to get a proper diagnosis of an autoimmune disease. It is a disease where instead of your white blood cells protecting your body from invaders, they turn around and attack your cells, tissues and organs. Chronic fatigue is another symptom. It is not a cold or the flu, you will never get better, and even a nap will not help. Just eating a salad and hitting the gym won’t slim your face or get the pounds off. Sleeping 10 hours doesn’t leave you well rested, ever. The last minute changes in plans because that “just got ran over” feeling never makes appointments, it just walks in whenever you aren’t ready. Painful joints, muscles and bones, dry skin, breaking hair, hair loss, mood swings, and depression are just the tip of the iceberg. You are also prone to having multiple autoimmune diseases, they typically come in pairs of two. You easily catch viral and bacterial infections. You have days where no matter how hard you try, you just can’t smile for anyone.
I urge you to think twice before passing judgment and thinking our nation is overreacting to the extra measures being taken to curb the spread of this virus. YOU might be able to recover from it no problem however, carry it to someone with an autoimmune disease and that individual won’t be as lucky.
I am watching the ones who will take the time to read this entire post and react. Please, in honor of someone who is fighting Graves Disease, Rheumatoid Arthritis, POTS, MCAD, Sjogren's, Scleroderma, Hashimoto Disease, Ankylosing Spondylitis, Fibromyalgia, Lupus, Sarcoidosis, Hepatitis, Raynauld's Syndrome, Diabetes, Mold Illness, Celiac, CROHN’S, Ulcerative Colitis, Pemphigus, SPS, MS, PBC, Psoriatic Arthritis, CIDP, MMN And GPA and many more... copy and paste to your page and reply "DONE" on mine.

Inspired By Italy, Dallas Residents Sing Together From Their Apartment Windows

There is something beautiful about the strength of the human spirit. They are singing from balconies in Italy, which has been hit so much worse, but it still provides comfort to know we are not alone, that we are still in a community.

In an act of solidarity amid social distancing and the coronavirus pandemic, residents of a Dallas apartment complex leaned out of their windows to sing "Lean on Me."

iF YOU WANT A NOTE ADDED INTO THE PACKAGE LET US KNOW.

As many of you know, we spend the majority of the year attending craft shows and fairs throughout Washington, Idaho and Oregon. With the need for us all to self quarantine, all of the shows and events that we would normally attend are cancelled. This affects not only us and our friends but hundreds of crafters and artisans in the industry that rely on these events. We also realize that there is a huge demand on food items everywhere. We are tryng to make a way to help out in this time of need so we are going to cover all shipping costs for orders of 6 or more pieces. These can be shipped to you or you can place the order to be shipped to a loved one and we will include a note. It is times like these that show us who we are, when we can look back and say that when the going got tough, we persevered... it is the American Way. Please, all of you stay safe, please stay well, take care of each other, and stay connected.
