Homemade Chocolate Crunch Easter “Eggs”
This is a really intriguing recipe that came to me from an Amish woman in Vanceburg, Kentucky. There is a small but growing settlement in this rural northeastern Kentucky community.  Homemade candies are a fun but low-key way to celebrate the Easter holiday, which is why these are popular in Amish ...

Easter and the Amish: Sweet Scenes
It’s one of the most somber and  holiest days on the Christian calendar: Easter.   Yet that doesn’t stop many Amish from enjoying the day’s more secular trappings.  I think it all comes down to the individual, much as it does in non-Amish society.  Secular symbols like colored egg... Read More

Amish in the News: Who Is This “Amish Woman?”, An Amish Singing, and How The Amish Thrive…
There are several items of interest in the news starting out the week, all worth reading. AMISH WOMAN? I am not making light of this, because it’s not a “funny” story, obviously the individual the cops were trying to catch was depraved. Rather this story shows the lengths police o... Read More

Amish Potato Salad
This is a great potato salad recipe and with Easter coming up and Memorial Day picnics, I thought I’d share it. I know everyone has their own special potato salad formulation but if you are open to experiment, this is a great one to try!  I’ve seen this recipe posted online, but it was firstRead Mo...

New Cookbook
Had a few readers inquire about a cookbook mentioned in Lovina’s columnpenned by her two wonderful sisters, Verena and Susan Coblentz. Sounds like a fun cookbook to add to anyone’s collection!  Still trying to find a price on it, when I do, I’ll post that along with “snail m... Read More

Rich Hill, Missouri – Part II
Rich Hill is home to a community of about 35 Old Order Mennonite families. The OOMs are the most conservative of the Mennonites, still using horse drawn buggies.  The average outsider would have difficulty discerning an OOM from an Old Order Amish.  One of the key identifiers is that OOM men rarely...

Pat A Pan Pie Crust
This is the easy pie crust (known as “pat a pan”) recipe that we used for the lemon meringue pie this week.   This pie crust recipe was in the Amish Cook’s Baking Book and has become our go-to crust recipe. What we like about this is that you don’t have to roll it out,Read More…The post Pat ... Read More

Amish Lemon Pie
Lemon pies are a staple in some Amish homes this time of year.  The first warm days of spring have arrived and the cold days of winter have disappeared into the rear-view mirror. Heavier January-day desserts also are made less often and Amish cooks begin to think of lighter, warmer weather sweets. ... Read More
