Bread + Me = True Love Always

Hey. Now, before I go making any formal introductions you should know something about me. I love bread. I mean, if singing lullabies to a warm loaf of yeasty goodness wouldn’t throw me into full-blown weirdo status, I would sing to bread at the top of my lungs. I love it that much. So if you hate bread, we probably won’t be “besties.” Okay, so that’s out of the way.

My name is Lee Ann Miller. I live in Ohio’s Amish Country, surrounded by rolling hills, horse and buggies, and mashed potatoes. Some days I wonder, “How did I end up here?” Do you ever wonder that? How did I get here?? In my case, I fell in love. Like head-over-heels “bread love.” I laid eyes on my young Amish man almost 22 years ago and here we are, living the country life. We own a bed & breakfast called The Miller Haus. My husband, Daryl, is shy, reserved, and quiet and the best man I know. I am not shy, quiet, or reserved, so we make an opposites-attract-type match. I wanna be old with Big D. He’s that awesome. We are Dad and Mom to two of the most extraordinary boys, Teddy and Joey. We love being parents.

I got connected here at FOX8 in 2008 through Kenny Crumpton, you know, the ‘Kickin’ it with Kenny’ guy. I was doing a food/recipe demonstration at an RV show at the IX Center and met Kenny. We did a recipe together ideal for RV road trips and he mentioned the Morning Show and handed me the contact information of a producer and the rest is history. I am a guest on the Recipe Box and have loved every minute spent with the wonderful team at FOX8. I hope we grow old together too!

Just about every week you’ll find me here, sharing things that happen from my home and The Miller Haus B&B.

  • At Home With Lee Ann: BLT Tossed Salad

    I love living in Amish Country for so many reasons. We make our home on the edges of the cozy village of Walnut Creek, sandwiched between two big, beautiful, hard-working farms.

Salads become more popular at our table and we love the ones with homemade […]

  • At Home With Lee Ann: Baked Apple Oatmeal

    I love the change of seasons. And right now, living in Ohio, I think we are all looking forward to spring. I often associate certain foods with each season. We welcome spring with the wispy green beauty of asparagus. I love to just toss it in olive oil and some kosher salt, broil it and then in the last few minutes add some minced garlic- glorious. In the summer, we eat salads until we start feeling like Peter Rabbit. The […]

  • At Home with Lee Ann: French Quarter Cheese

    Does it stress you out to think about having people over to your house? Do you get sweaty and jittery just thinking of a house full of people? I used to. Not anymore. In the past 10 years, I have become more relaxed and open about having people over to our home. Maybe it’s because of our kids’ ages. Maybe it’s because we had a shift in our professional life. Maybe it’s my age. But whatever the reason, because of […]

  • Big Bangs & Amish Britches: Part III

    Swift. The definition of swift is happening fast, acting fast and moving fast. My courtship with the young man in his Amish britches was swift. November 30th, 1991 we rented the movie “Dances with Wolves.” I really don’t recall much of the movie at all. It was a love story at its core and that definitely worked in my favor. Love was in the air and on the television set too. Daryl is quiet by nature. I describe him as […]
