Introducing you to some interesting cookbooks, recipes, etc. found while rambling through Amish country

Happy Tuesday! Since I spent the weekend in Amish Country and just didn’t feel like baking when I got home Sunday afternoon, I decided to change things up and have a giveaway on a few things from Amish Country. Who doesn’t like to win, right?

Just leave a comment on this blog post on what your favorite summertime dinner is to fix no later than Saturday evening, and I will draw a name from those who commented and post on next week’s blog who the winner is.

My absolute favorite summertime dinner is fresh tomatoes, corn on the cob, and green beans…usually items I can walk right out back into our yard and get from our garden...

Carolyn’s Corner ~ Made With Love

Welcome to Carolyn’s Corner

Taking life one page at a time in Paradise

Hello from Paradise!  I’ve been on a little sabbatical from reading but I’m back in full swing.  Being close to the Pinecraft, Florida area, I couldn’t resist picking up the new book by Tricia Goyer & Sherry Gore.  My husband & I, along with Whoopie Pie Pam visit the area often so imagine how much fun it was for me to know the area that these two ladies wrote about.

Tricia and Sherry have done an excellent job with “Made with Love”. Lovina and Noah have moved to Pinecraft FL for different reason. Lovina’s father has health issues and the Dr. has recommended a warmer more humid climate. Noah has moved to start life over after some serious problems caused by bad decisions during his rumspringa...

Tasty Tuesday ~ Zucchini-Pineapple Bread

Other than baking a large variety of Christmas cookies each year, zucchini bread is one of my favorite things to bake during the summer. Zucchini is always grown in our garden every year just for bread. And our neighbors eagerly await the baking of this bread. The requests start pouring in when they see the garden full of blossoms and large green plants. I am more than happy to bake and give to others, and I feel that is my way to bless others. Between baking and card making, I feel that God uses both of these items as my ministry to bless others with a pick me up. I know I enjoy receiving something happy in the mail...

Tasty Tuesday ~ Brownies

Today’s recipe comes out of the Amish Country Cookbook, Volume I, favorite recipes gathered by Das Dutchman Essenhaus. I wanted something to take into work this week, so I opted to try a recipe for brownies since it only made an 8×8 pan. I work in a small office of just 4 of us, so this size is just perfect. I’m sure the guys would enjoy the 9×13 pan, but this way I can make something else later in the week for them with just having a small pan full now.

Tasty Tuesday ~ Canning String Beans

This past weekend, my mom and I canned string beans with our sweet Amish friend, Barbara. No cookbook recipe this week – I think this one is better; comes directly from my friend. You can’t get better than that, right? I have always wanted to learn to can, but never really had the time, so we made a canning date for Saturday. I quickly put it on the calendar and blocked out the entire day. Mom had canned lots of stuff when my brother and I were lots younger, so she knew the ropes and how long it takes...

It seems like we have been spending almost every weekend in Amish Country. We are blessed to only live 90 minutes away from it. Lots of fresh produce is now available at the Amish roadside stands. We bought a dozen ears of corn and some tomatoes since ours in the garden are still green. It has been so wet here that I’m not sure if our vegetable garden is going to amount to anything. I did see one lonely string bean on a plant tonight when I made my rounds though. There is always hope. And the birds nicely planted sunflower seeds for me, so I’ve been enjoying the pretty yellow blooms. It’s a plus having the bird feeder close to the garden I guess...

Front Porch Friday ~ Amish Weddings

FrontPorchFriday

Welcome to Front Porch Friday!

You never know what you might here…

As I sit on the porch this morning, enjoying my cup of coffee, my mind is on the upcoming wedding of my youngest daughter.  In 24hours, this porch will be a hustle and bustle of all things white.  Weddings now days aren’t your traditional church weddings.  They are performed in many venues such as barns, beaches, and sides of hills.  For the Amish, they have maintained their traditional Amish weddings.  The following post is by Lue Shelter.  Lue is former Amish and will share with you some of the things you will find at an Amish wedding.

Amish weddings used to be much more “massive” in size...

Welcome to this week’s Tasty Tuesday. For this week’s recipe, I chose one for corn bread out of the Amish Country Cookbook Volume I. I made muffins instead of actual bread, but used the same recipe. I just divided the recipe in half, so I wouldn’t have a ton of corn muffins. And before someone asks how I divided three eggs in half, I used egg beaters which makes measuring eggs for something like this a whole lot easier, and I don’t see a taste difference.
