The Amish Cook: Enjoy zucchini scramble for breakfast or lunch

It is Thursday already and time to get this column out in today’s mail. It hardly seems like two weeks have passed since I penned the last column. I was happy that daughter Verena offered to write last week in my place. She loves to write so she didn’t have a problem about not getting the le…

Amish Cook: Zucchini blends in flavorful pie

It is a rainy Wednesday in June as I write this. Son Kevin’s class went to a state park in Indiana today for their school field trip. I am hoping the weather is nicer there. The temperature never went over 60 degrees so far today so it could be chilly for their nature walk through the woods.

It is Tuesday evening. I’m sitting out here on the front porch and it is very quiet, almost too quiet.

Amish Cook: Cheese and asparagus blend in canape recipe

Another rainy day! It has been rainy all week. We were able to get all the clothes dried on Monday even though there was a shower after the clothes were on the lines. We need to do laundry again and sure am hoping for a nice day on Friday or Saturday.

Amish Cook: Sharing a day in the life of the Amish Cook

3:15 a.m. Time to start the day! I pack my husband Joe’s lunch while he gets ready for work. I pack a container of leftover breakfast casserole for him to eat at his 8:30 a.m. break. He isn’t hungry for breakfast this early in the morning. Then for his lunch I pack some fried chicken, cherry…

Amish Cook: Muffins remain a good way to use overripe bananas

We are still in the process of getting everything cleaned for our upcoming church services that we will host on May 4, Lord willing. Council meeting was set for that day, so lunch will be served during the service. We usually have two tables set and people take turns coming to eat over the n…

Amish Cook: Add butterscotch to zucchini brownies

It is turning out to be a nice, sunny day. The temperature is almost 40. We awoke one morning this week with the ground all covered with snow. It stayed cold for a few days with the temperature going down to 22 one night.

We are into the first week of March which is unbelievable. It makes us think of spring but the weather outside is telling us something a whole lot different.

Amish Cook: Yeast doughnuts perfect item for morning menus

We had 200 gallons of propane delivered here this morning. The price was $2.69 a gallon which is probably the most we have paid since we started using it.

Amish Cook: Enjoy bacon omelet rolls for breakfast, lunch or dinner

We are having thunder, lightning, and rain right now. The temperature is just over the freezing mark so it turns the driveway into a sheet of ice. It’s a challenge to walk on and for daughter Loretta so much more.

Amish Cook: Homemade pizza a perfect welcome home treat

We are still having temperatures below zero on some mornings. We also received a few more inches of snow. The local paper said we have had 41.5 inches of snow this year and the average temperature has been zero.

Amish Cook: Sharing a recipe for easy skillet steak

We are already into the second month of 2014. Many, many inches of snow have fallen already this year. Our neighbor cleaned our drive again yesterday. We have some pretty big snow banks that have accumulated from the drive being cleaned out quite often.
