    Video doesn’t work for those of us way out in the boonies. Not enough bandwidth.

    Enjoyed the video, I think it is a nice addition. I love my Kitchen Aide, have had it for over 15 years.

    I enjoyed the video. I have a Kitchen Aid and would not want to do without it.

    Pretty cool video, looking forward to future episodes. Kitchen-Aid-didn’t think they were necessary until I got one, now I will never be without one. Keep up the good work everyone. PS-interesting to hear someone pronounce Lovina’s name. To myself I always thought of it as sounding like Loveena.

      Thanks, Howard. And, yes, you are not alone…most people want to pronounce her name as “Loveena”., but the I is actually long!:)

    Recently I saw an Amish buggy at McDonald’s. I was a bit surprised but delighted to see two Amish ladies seated inside, enjoying a burger!
    As for the Amish Buggy, and using a triangle to warn other drivers of their presence-I support the use of the triangle! Recently a car ran into a buggy with a family in it. Sadly, the mother was killed . The buggy had a triangle on the back, but they were hit from the side. It was dark and the driver failed to see them in time to stop. If they only had a reflective triangle on the sides of the buggy, this might not have happened. Also, I think all Amish should have a phone in their sheds in case of an emergency! I,ve read that some Amish Communities are easy prey to robbers, who know they have no phones, and are therefore easy targets.
    But, what I think is not important because I am not Amish!

    I enjoyed the video very much. I have a Kitchen Aid also, brand new still in the box, circa 1970. Was a wedding present LOL. I just like to mix with either my hand mixer, which was also a wedding present, or by hand. And yes I use my hand mixer a lot.

    I’m going to watch this tomorrow, as it’s midnight here. But I noticed you decided to do Pinterest!

    You have to capture your audience in the first few minutes. The opening of a show is like the thesis of a paper, it is the promise between you and the audience: “the show is about this.” What’s all the Paula Deen stuff? I was ready to jump into a “broadcast” of a cooking show and I get your discussion of Paula Deen. Jeez. I did not watch past that beginning. The beginning should be, like a good country song, “the hook.” You lost me.

      Donna, thanks for the feedback! I kind of like the “chat and cook” format, but we’ll see what others say, maybe we’ll just get straight into the cooking next time!

    I totally agree with Donna in that the video lost me with all the news commentary. I love to listen to news about the Amish but it should be seperate from the cooking video. Who wants to listen about horse poop then cooking ??

    I loved the video. I actually cut the recipe out of our Saturday paper and plan to make them this week. It is so nice to see you, though we have seen you on video’s many times, which I think is nice. I am so admiring of the Amish folks. I think it takes a strong lady to be of the Amish community. They, to me have very hard lives, but seem to be happy lives.I had heard of the Amish community in Pennsylvania but knew nothing about them. I was able to make a trip to Pennsylvania, Lancaster, to see the Amish community and all that they do. I was so taken by them. Having been born in Portsmouth, Ohio, I never knew that we had Amish folks in different counties until I met a man in our church,here in Arkansas, almost twenty five years later, who was Amish, left the order at the age of 18 and continues to go around to other churches and give his speech about the Amish live. He told me that the biggest Amish community was there in Ohio. I was so surprised. I went back home to visit and on the way back home we stopped in Ravina and bought a beautiful turn table that you put on your kitchen table. It is beautiful.
    I agree with another reader that they should have more than one triangle on their buggies and also maybe more lights. The buggies being dark and at night, it being dark, they are hard to see until sometimes it is to late and what a tragedy that would be
    Thanks again Kevin for all you do and we love the Amish Cook articles. I can hardly wait for our Friday or Saturday paper to come so I can see what is happening with Lovina and her family. They sound like a great loving family.

      Donna,
      Thanks so much for stopping by and we’ll be doing more videos in the coming weeks. Are you the one that emailed me recently to say the Conway paper moved The Amish Cook to Saturdays???
