Going through some of the pictures on my phone, I realized I never shared the recipe for these yummy oatmeal raisin cookies. They were so soft and chewy and got several thumbs up at the office. This was my first recipe to try out of my new Busy Mother’s Cookbook. I bought my copy at Gordonville Book Store and have seen it for sale in several other places in Lancaster County. I had to get this cookbook, since I know part of the Amish family who put it together. And it is a very popular cookbook used by the Amish themselves.

Here is the recipe if you’d like to fix a batch to enjoy…

One of my favorite salads to fix (and eat too) is the pretzel salad. I was first introduced to this salad by my good friend, Ona. She had sent me the recipe many years ago, and Mom and I have been fixing it ever since. I was so excited to see it in one of my Amish cookbooks, The Wooden Spoon Cookbook. That meant I could fix a yummy salad and have a Tasty Tuesday recipe finished as well. Double score!

This is a great recipe to fix to take to a potluck or cookout. It’s something very different, but so delicious...

The Saturday before Father’s Day, hubby and I had to make a delivery up to Amish Country for an upcoming benefit/yard sale, so I was crossing my fingers that a little Amish stand in Georgetown would still have their fresh strawberry shortcakes for sale. Figured that would be dessert for Father’s Day since my Saturday was quite full. We lucked out, and they had fresh strawberry shortcake, fresh strawberry pies, fresh blueberry pies, and hubby’s favorite homemade rootbeer. So we picked up a strawberry shortcake and blueberry pie as well as a bottle of rootbeer for him to enjoy on our ride home.

Since I didn’t make the shortcake myself, I looked ...

Hot and humid weather always makes me think of lemonade. Back in September, I shared a recipe for homemade lemonade, so I pulled out that recipe and made up a small batch for us to enjoy. Here’s a link to that if you are thirsty for some good ol’ fashioned lemonade…

Since I was on a lemon kick, I looked for something else to make and found a recipe for lemon bars. Figured they sounded delicious and would satisfy my sweet tooth. This recipe comes from the Tasty Traditions/Huber Family Favorites.

This week’s recipe is for something I do not like at all – beets! But since my hubby does, I fix them on occasion. He really enjoys harvard beets that you can get up in Amish Country at various restaurants. So I figured there must be a recipe in one of the Amish cookbooks I have…and yes, I found one…

The recipe for harvard beets comes from the Amish Country Cookbook, Volume I – favorite recipes gathered by Das Dutchman Essenhaus. It’s an older cookbook in my collection and can most likely be found on Ebay.

Time for a contest do-over. The winner of the blog candy from a couple weeks ago never came forward, so that means it’s time to find another winner for the cookbook and Amish made potholder. It could be your lucky day.

Mom invited us over for dinner last night and fixed the cheddar meatloaf recipe I shared back on February 17, 2015. She fixes this a lot when a shut-in at church needs a meal dropped off...

Can you believe that this week’s recipe is not a dessert? Some of you probably fell off your chairs not seeing something sweet in the title. Since I had two pounds of ground turkey thawing, I decided to look for a recipe to use that. I found a recipe for sloppy joes in Tasty Traditions/Huber Family Favorites. My usual way of fixing sloppy joes is to brown the meat and open a can or two of Manwich. I’m all about fixing an easy meal, but that doesn’t always mean it is the healthiest. So I decided to make sloppy joes from scratch and see how they tasted.

As you can see, since I used ground turkey, the meat doesn’t actually get “brown” like beef ...

I know some of you have seen the pictures of the camels that I have taken up at an Amish farm in Lancaster County, because some of you have asked why they have camels. I figured for this week’s blog post, I would answer that question.

For a couple years now, this one Amish farm has had camels. It started with just a couple, and as of Mother’s Day, we saw 13. The baby camels are just too cute.

This Amish farm raises the camels for their milk. Miller’s Organic Farm sells the milk in pints only. Camel milk is used for Autism, Crohn’s disease, tuberculosis, and various other diseases...

Let’s talk cookies this week – monster cookies to be exact. These cookies have pretty much everything in them except the kitchen sink it seems like. And the recipe makes a monster pile of cookies too. A good cookie to fix at Christmas if you have a cookie exchange to attend. I found this recipe in Tasty Traditions/Huber Family Favorites. There are actually five recipes in this one cookbook for various types of monster cookies. They pretty much have the same ingredients except I noticed one has nuts, coconut, and Rice Krispies as well. So yes, pretty much everything but the kitchen sink seems to fit the bill here.

It’s definitely springtime around here. I can tell, because of the warmer temperatures and the little ants in my kitchen.

animated-ant-image-0010animated-ant-image-0010

When the weather warms up and we have a little rain, those pesky little ants find their way into my kitchen and drive me crazy. I know a lot of people reach for the over the counter poison sprays or gel when it comes to killing ants. I don’t like to spray that sort of stuff or have the gel in my kitchen with all the utensils and such sitting around, so I found a recipe in one of my many Amish cookbooks, Tasty Traditions/Huber Family Favorites that I am going to try...
