May You Rest In Peace

Grab a cup of coffee… My mind is in overdrive
Nothing in life seems fair. No matter how hard I tried to sleep last night, this thought kept rolling over & over in my head. Nowhere that I have found written in word does it say that it should be. What I did find written was..

“These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.” (John 16:33)

Not too long ago, while I was battling cancer, My cousin Jeff was diagnosed as well… I can still remember some questions that he asked me at that time. As with anyone diagnosed, the unknown of what is to come about is the worst of it all. Your first emotion is being scared...

Amish Fried Pies

Amish Fried Pies

Amish Fried Pies are the best pastry (next to a Whoopie Pie of course)!  They were one of the highest selling items in my store.  Recently, a Mennonite lady shared with me this recipe for Fried Pies.  This one is quite simple.  This recipe is for apple but you can substitute most fruit fillings.  I’ve made a few *notes throughout the recipe.

Ingredients:
-8 ounces dried apples  *can also use fresh (recipe for that below)
-1 cup water
-1/3 cup sugar
-1 tablespoon butter
-1 tsp. cinnamon or apple pie spice (*Your preference)
-1 can jumbo refrigerated flaky biscuits (*You can also make your own biscuit dough)
-vegetable oil (for frying)

Directions:

Combine apples and water in saucepan; bring to a boil.

Cover, reduce heat, and simmer for 30 minutes or until tender.

The Holiday Stress Diet

th-5

Oh the weather outside is frightful… but that’s not the only frightful thing! During this holiday season it seems that just about everything fits that description. The truest test of our sanity comes at this time each year. All wrapped up with a pretty bow and tinsel on the tree.

As with tradition, it’s the time of year for me to start looking at ways to lose weight. (Don’t judge… you know good & well you do it too)  I’m a little early this year since this tradition for me is usually after the Christmas Season and it’s purpose is to begin a new year … the healthy Richard Simmons way. I love Richard Simmons and I bond each year with his “Sweatin To The Oldies” workout...

Under Construction

As most of you know, This website was hacked into and had to be taken down and revamped before going live again. At no time was any subscriber’s information compromised.  It is now back in my hands and I am working diligently to see that it is back in full force once again not only the same… but hopefully better! Since I wasn’t smart enough to backup the website (or did and just can’t remember where the backup is) It’s going to be a slow ongoing process.  Some files I was able to find and get reinstalled.  Others, from September 2012 – November 2014 are still lost in cyberspace.  I  thank you for your patience during this time!!

A Season for Tending ~ Review

A Season for Tending

By

Cindy Woodsmall

This is the first book in Ms. Woodsmall’s  “Amish Vines and Orchards”.  It is a MUST read, and personally, I think Ms. Woodsmall needs to get busy getting the rest of the books in this series to us as soon as she can J

Book Description

In a community where conformity flourishes, seeds of Rhoda’s odd behavior were planted long ago. Can she cultivate her relationships with the same care and tenderness that she gives her beloved garden?

Old Order Amish Rhoda Byler’s unusual gift and her remarkable abilities to grow herbs and berries have caused many to think her odd. As rumors mount that Rhoda’s “gift” is a detriment to the community, she chooses isolation, spending her time in her fruit garden and on her thriving canning business.

Material Witness ~ Book Review

Material Witness

By

Vannetta Chapman

“Material Witness” is the 3rd and final book in Vannetta Chapman’s Shipshewana Amish Mystery Series.  Although I have not read the other 2 books in this series.  Yet.  Reading “Material Witness” however, has costs my husband some money.  (Money that I spent on buying the first two books. :) )  The fact that I had not read the other two in this series did not ruin the book at all for me.  It is written to where it can also be a stand-alone book.

Book Description from Amazon:

Tragedy strikes on the opening night of the Fall Crafters Fair when a woman is killed in the parking lot of Daisy’s Quilt Shop, and the only material witness is one of Melinda Byer’s boys...
