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...

Tasty Tuesday ~ Sloppy Joes

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.

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.

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.

Tasty Tuesday ~ It’s Definitely Springtime

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

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...

I was definitely thinking chocolate after seeing Menopause the Musical over the weekend at Dutch Apple Dinner Theater in Lancaster. Oh my word! It was so funny. I laughed from the beginning to the end and highly recommend the show if it comes to your area. So with chocolate on my mind, I chose the “Hershey’s Brownies” recipe out of the Tasty Traditions/Huber Family Favorites cookbook which includes over 900 tasty recipes for homestyle cooking, baking, and canning. Hershey has always been my chocolate of choice, so when I saw the name, I knew I had to fix these

This week’s post is another dessert I made for Easter Sunday. A dump cake is a very easy cake to whip (or I really should say dump) together especially if unexpected company is on the way. The ingredients are items you probably already have on hand. In Cinnamon Rolls and Mixing Bowls, you can find this recipe on page 200. Another one of my favorite cookbooks that sits on my cookbook rack pretty frequently. Since I have quite the collection of Amish cookbooks, hubby put together a small bookcase just for them, so it is nice to keep them together in one place.

Tasty Tuesday ~ Carrot Cake

Happy first week of April! Where did the first three months of the year go? They flew by right quick for me.

One of the desserts I made for Easter was carrot cake cupcakes. I used the recipe from the Weavertown School Kitchen Collections cookbook. I seem to reach for this cookbook a lot, because it is full of all sorts of neat recipes. I’ve been keeping it on my cookbook holder in the kitchen, so it is close by.
