THE AMISH COOK
BY LOVINA EICHER
Editor's Note to Readers: These are some favorite fall recipes from Lovina Eicher. Her column will return next week. Her absence is my doing, I wasn't sure when our baby would be born so I figured rather than having to be dealing with a column in the middle of it all, we'd just go with recipes this week. - Kevin Williams

CRAP WE WOULD RATHER READ LOVINA THAN HEAR ABOUT YOU AND YOUR KID COMING.
That isn't very nice!
🙁 totally uncalled for Janette! I love hearing about Kevin's family.
How extremely rude!
THAT IS THE RUDEST REMARK EVER, JANETTE.!!!! IT REMINDED ME OF THE REMARK HARRY REID MADE ABOUT THE "KID" WITH CANCER!!!!
I suspect Lovina would prefer that you didn't read her columns either. I don't think she abides rudeness.
WOW!!! That's uncalled for!
I can only assume that you are a very unhappy person and are looking for attention. Next time use a filter and consider whether your momma or grandma would be proud of your words and attitude.
Just like TV, change the channel. Google pictures of puppies and have a good day.
I am not one to comment on others comments, but that was totlly rude. Do you have any children, if so do you remember what it was like the first month of being a new parent/
You and Rachel have to take care of yourselves and the baby too......
God bless you and your family......
Wow, Janette, that's incredibly rude.
Looking forward to trying this recipe. It sounds so good.
I am sure that Lovina is thankful for the week off from the column. This is a busy time of year with harvest and canning. Take care of you and your lovely wife Kevin and praying for a healthy baby and safe delivery. God bless.
Kevin, please don't pay any attention to Janette. I can't wait to hear more about your baby daughter and how you are managing fatherhood! I'm sure you are enjoying it. And I will bet Lovina is enjoying this little break from the column to catch up on her work.
I cant believe that some people are so rude! Just ignore people like that and enjoy this special time in your lives.
Hi Kevin--I love hearing about your new baby. You and Rachel enjoy your baby they grow so fast. She will settle down soon and you will get some sleep. I had 5 close together and the sleeping does get better. Enjoy every minute and don't let rude people bother you.
Recipes are always good..this is the Amish COOK website,after all!! I have been a long-timer on this site,and Kevin has always done a top notch job. Babies cannot be "predicted",and running this site should be second on the list for now. Great job,Kevin..and disregard the rudeness of some.
Congratulations on your new baby girl Kevin. Babies are truly a gift from God. And you better get used to the sleepness nights...there is more to come when they start dating. Enjoy!!
Wow Janette...how rude...you can always press the delete button, you don't have to get so nasty...I'm certain no one here wants to read about it...what happened to your manners? Taking a vacation or don't you have any?
Kevin...A big, hearty congratulations to you and Rachel...Ignore the sour grapes and enjoy your new baby daughter...You do what you have to do for your family first...we will still be here and I think it is wonderful to hear about your new experiences...and fun! Keep it coming...
Hi Kevin+Rachael, Congratulations with the arrival of little Aster! May the Lord bless and keep you all! As to the most rude remark from Janette- If she choses not to change her ways, she will be caught in her own trap+receive treatment in kind. That warning is found many times in the book of Proverbs. Forgive+ask God's intervention in her life, as well as your own. We can all use improvement with God's grace. There's no one on the face of this earth who doesn't need Him every minute of every day. Again, blessings- Carol
Yikes. Good grief. Holy smokes. Gosh dang it. I mean....seriously...Janette? I've always been under the belief that if you can't say something nice...find something nice to say anyway. Sheesh. Grow up already. Keep it coming when you can Kevin. Family is important...and getting a newborn to turn their hours around isn't an easy thing to do when you're already tired to start with. Good luck with it! Extra help is wonderful. Great time to bond. As to this recipe. A friend of mine makes this exact recipe and I find it just way too sweet for me. Some like it that way...just not me.
and she even had to do it in caps. did anyone force her to follow this blog ?? did anyone tell her cannot hit the delete button ?? it is not like there is anything imperative or a death sentence if she does not read. Personally, I m hoping for a regular update on sweet Aster and how long this takes Kevin to get used to catnaps for his sleep time. We are privileged to be invited in for visits with your lovely little family. THANK YOU
What a rude and nasty comment to make! She should apologize for making it. If you feel she really has a problem with you, remember this, ITS HER PROBLEM! Reading your column is the highlight of my day and as much as I love reading Lovina"s column I was hoping to get an update about your new baby. Hearing about the sleepless nights, backwards schedules and all that goes along with a newborn brought back lots of memories for me. Treasure every minute of it, even the rough stuff, because it flies by so, so fast.
I think that Kevin & his family are as much a part of 'The Amish Cook' team as Lovina. It is lovely to hear about his beautiful daughter & I am so excited for both he & Rachel. Kevin, please don't worry about the rude commenter. Looking after your family is your priority & this is such an important time in your life that you will never have again (those first days with your first baby), so treasure each & every one of them.
The recipes look delicious as always ~ thank you
Kevin: I, for one, loved hearing about your family and your precious little girl. It gives your column such a personal touch and makes us feel like an extended family. Just keep up the good work and disregard any negative comments you receive. Remember, it takes a small person to say something so rude and that is not the following you need. It makes me wonder why she even subscribes to your column.
As we can see from all the positive comments, Janette is the only one who feels this way. I guess when you're in the public spotlight, there is always that one who likes to spoil everyone's good time. The vast majority of us enjoy your columns and love to hear about your family! Dont' worry about it.
Kevin... I am thrilled that your little pumpkin has made her entry into your family. Thank you for sharing even the smallest bit of her with us. Enjoy every precious moment with her. Time will pass way too quickly and she will grow right before your eyes. As for Janette - perhaps it is time she move on to somewhere that her unbelievable rudeness would be appreciated,
because it is certainly not welcome here!
WHOOOOOA WOW girlfriend go back to bed and get up on the OTHER side. Seriously woman? I honestly hope you get some help I agree with Cynthia, your problems go way deeper than what we are seeing on your comment. Yes Keven we need updates as often as you see fit. She will grow so fast, please keep us posted. Us Grandma's love that ya know.
CRAP! WE WANNA READ IT ALL-BABIES-FOOD-RECIPES-LOVINA'S FAMILY-THE HORSES-HOW ARE THE HEALTH OF THE DAUGHTER'S,FOOD SERVED AT CHURCH SERVICES,YEAH YEAH!!! ALL OF IT!! HAHA-DAWN
Kevin, as everyone else has said, ignore janette's rudeness. A big congrats to you & Rachel on your wonderful addition. Can't wait to try these recipes as I have a lot of pumpkins growing & ready for harvest!! Keep up with the hard work & yes sleep will come to you in time.
Kevin, I hve enjoyed hearing about you new addition. It will get better after a month or so. You will get used to the lack of sleep. I hope that Lovina enjoed her week off. I bet she was plenty busy with canning and chores, not to mention children.
Kevin, what size pan do you use for a sheet cake? I know this is larger than a regular 9 X 13" pan. Thanks. And enjoy that new little one!! Life will truly never be the same and the joy is overwhelming at this stage!
Hi, Nancy, good to see you here again. The pan size would be 16'' x 24'' x 3'' Hope that helps!
