It is the beginning of summer's surge and the recipes reflect a trend towards the refreshing and the traditional. Lets see what recipes are leading the way this week on Amish365:
🥮 Trending Amish Breakfast
Amish Cinnamon Raisin Rolls: This is an amazing recipe, try this: Cinnamon rolls are a staple in Amish kitchens. And, wow, have tasted my share over the years. I'd be hard pressed to tell you which one or ones were my favorite. There's really no such thing as a "bad" cinnamon, just some that are better than others (some Amish bakeries that cook and bake using kerosene stoves, the kerosene can leave an aftertaste) Click here for the recipe.
🥣 Trending Amish Soups and Sides
Amish Fried Potatoes: A country classic! Click here.
Amish Corn Fritters: A delicious summer staple:
I love the taste of corn, especially butter and salt-slathered sweet corn on the cob in the summer. Mmmmmmmmmm, yum! But I'll take corn in pudding, bread, or just plain with butter, thank you. Fresh corn is a summer staple in Amish kitchens because of its relative ease of cultivation and versatility. Corn muffins, anyone?
This is a really easy recipe that I enjoyed for lunch today. It's out of the Amish Cook archives and really is meant to be used for fresh corn on the cob, but, heck I used 15 ounce can of corn instead of the ears.
Amish Freezer Pickles: A delicious, refreshing treat! Click here.
🍲 Amish Main Dishes
Mennonite Pan-Fried Chicken: This is a super back-to-basics recipe:
In my opinion, often the best foods are the most basic. And that is why I am such a fan of Amish, Mennonite, and Hutterite cooking. It's all back to basics, creating flavor blends with just what you have within reach.
Amish Ham Loaf: A perfect meal, hearty and delicious! Click here.

Coffee Smoothies: A cool, refreshing summer treat! Click here.
Amish Lemon Pie: Here is some background about this super refreshing summer staple:
is a lemon meringue pie, but for those of you who don't care for meringue or just don't want to go through the trouble of making it, this pie would be superb as a stand-alone lemon without the meringue. But the meringue is a nice touch, so don't get intimidated by the meringue.
Lemons, by the way, are a fruit that manages to find its way into Amish communities despite being very non-native. Lemons ship relatively well and have long shelf lives, so it's not unusual to have crates of lemons being sold in Amish-owned groceries. Lemons are used for flavorings, lemonades, and, yes, pies!
