story.lead_photo.caption Photo by Sally Carroll Linda "Granny" Gill and her husband, Benton, have made lots of friends since she launched her baking business in mid-November. Granny is able to stay home and care for her husband while she bakes up a storm in the kitchen. She has gained a lot of customers in a short time, many of whom remember "Granny" from her restaurant days, or when she served as a nutrition educator and traveled to schools in McDonald County. Some of her customers now are former students, she said, smiling.

From homemade cinnamon rolls, coconut crème pies, to snickerdoodle cookies, Granny Gill bakes up a storm.

Customers can choose from cakes, brownies, dinner rolls, a variety of pies and more.

All the delectable desserts are made from scratch.

This spring, Gill also plans to offer her home and backyard for birthday parties, weddings and other special events.

Her large, beautiful backyard features numerous flowers, plants and trees, as well as a picket fence with arch walkway, which is perfect for early spring and summer weddings, she said.

A recently renovated garage room, near the back of her home, will serve as a great reception room. Plenty of parking space is available.

Those who are interested may private message Gill to look at the property and discuss prices of the services.
