    Hi Kevin, This week in looking over the Amish website, I came across your notice about the cookbook sale. I saved the info, however we had a storm and the info was lost. Could you please send me the info again? I remember it was several cookbooks for about $50.00. I have ordered all that are about Elizabeth and now her family and love them. I read Elizabeth’s
    early writings years ago and was so taken with her writings. My early life was much like the Amish including the butchering of animals and the recipes. We cooked much as the Amish. My husband & I moved back to Texas and I am sure that the early writings of Elizabeth are in a box, as yet unpacked. I was so very sorry to read about her passing. I am sure that she would be very proud of her daughter and granddaughters. They do a fine job with the column and the books, as do you. Thank you for continuing The Amish Cook!
    Sincerely,
    Carolyn Collman

    Ok, question on the pizza Rachel made. First, it looks delicious, just the kind we like. Not too much crust, not too thin. So, the question is, can you tell that it’s made with whole wheat flour? My bunch will probably reject it at first bite if it has anything more than the mildest of wheat taste.

    Hmmmmm, Jill, I might have to let my wife weigh in on that (I’ll ask her), but if you blind-folded me and had me eat that pizza and I wouldn’t be able to tell it was a wheat crust.. To me it’s just a good chewy (in a good way) pizza crust…I don’t like a pizza crust that is brick-hard or tough/chewy like meat, nor do I like a soggy, paper-thin crust…I think the crust in that recipe comes out perfect and not at all “wheaty” (just made up a word:)
