I’m trying to experiment with new, fun, interesting content on this website. Some stuff will work, some won’t. I’m going to leave it up to all of you to tell me what you like and don’t like. One of the new things I’m trying is teaming up with my sister-in-law, Jamee Diver, who is a versatile baker, cook, and homemaker in her own right, to bring you “The Almost Amish Kitchen.” This occasional series (weekly, if you REALLY enjoy it:) will bring video demonstrations of how some of the Amish Cook’s recipes are made and we’ll also chat about some of the topics we discuss on here. Now to address the obvious: Lovina – The Amish Cook – can’t participate in these videos. One of the very things that makes The Amish Cook so appealing – it’s authenticity – also makes it a difficult brand to promote. Lovina’s church, like most others, don’t typically participate in projects that involve being photographed. But I’m hoping these videos are one way to sort of bring her recipes to life.
To watch our first episode, click here. Let us know what you think. And at very least, my nephew, Cooper, and niece, Reese, enjoyed the by-product of the video: cookies! That’s them with Jamee below!
Thanks to Jamee’s husband, Aaron, for watching the kids during the video and my wife Rachel for doing the behind the camera work. And the link to Park and Vine, the store we talk about, is here. And as always, I’m only discussing this business because I think it’s neat, no one is paying me to promote (Lord know I wish someone were, if any business ever does, I will tell you in the interest of full disclosure)
