Welcome to the new, hopefully improved, amishcookonline. The Amish Cook column has had an online presence in one form or another since the year 2000. Some of you have been with us since those earliest days. The site has evolved and changed over the years. I want to offer a public and profuse thank you to Brian Fending who really made it possible in those early days to offer The Amish Cook online. This new site allows me more flexibility and options to offer content in a variety of formats: video, audio, pictorial, and print.
A brief tutorial:
All new stuff that I post will show up right on the front page. But if you just visit maybe once a week and want to read The Amish Cook column but don’t want to scroll through a week’s worth of posts, just click above where it says THE AMISH COOK COLUMN or if you want to just see all recipes within the past week, click above where it says RECIPES. The recipes and columns will all be easily archived for quick browsing. By the way, the recipe archive is a bit of a mess right now…that is going to take a couple of weeks to get up and running completely, so I appreciate your patience!
One thing that will hopefully disappear on this site is the relentless spamming that became a real annoyance. We tried mightily to fight off the spammers but it seemed like we only succeeded in making it more difficult for our readers to post, the spammers simply evolved. This site should end that. So, explore and enjoy! This site is a work in progress and there is going to be a learning curve (for all of us), but I hope you enjoy the new digs!
