    I was told about your column just recently, and now I am hooked. I really
    enjoy reading it.

    I was wondering if you ever write about the Dunkard Brethren Church.
    I used to be a member here in N.Canton, Ohio until it dissolved, I guess
    that is the word that I would use. My father was a minister in that church.
    They are a plain people also. Mostly concentrated in Pa.

      Dorothy, I love the Dunker church and write about them often. Welcome to this site! How long ago did your church dissolve and why? Here is one of my Dunker posts http://www.oasisnewsfeatures.com/the-other-plain-church/ – Kevin

    Thankx for sharing I love Amish cooking my mom always did it too, but untill I got older I had no idea it was Amish, just mom’s! I had Amish golden pickled eggs at the Farmers Market in Lancaster, Pa. in the 70’s and make them alot, I also use the green tomato jams,and no one knows the difference till I make sure they love it then I tell them,lol

    I put together the Ham & Pea Salad. Yummmm! This was a very savory and tasty meal which took “center stage” by itself. I used frozen peas which I allowed to thaw most of the day. For the meat portion, I julienned a ham steak. Shredded Cheddar Cheese and a locally grown red onion plus 1/2 cup of Hidden Valley Ranch Dressing made this a meal from heaven!

    Thank you for your Website, the Amish Cook, and please keep up the good work. I’ve been a reader for a few years now, the beginning when I first purchased the cookbook, “The Amish Cook”.

    All the best,
