I posted this a year or so ago on the old site, but since we have so many more visitors to this new site and it’s a slow Monday evening, I thought I would post it again. My life being so influenced by the Amish is rather ironic since my mother’s side of the family is a sprawling Italian clan and my childhood was spent off and on in the cultural cauldron of Arabia. And I pick the Amish??:) Oh well, I thought I would merge the two in this video by introducing my grandmother (age 86) and my great-uncle to traditional, delicious “whoopie pies”….this video I guess could more accurately be entitled Mennonite Meets Italian because these delicious confections are from one of my favorite bakeries, the Mennonite-owned Country Crust Bakery outside of Bainbridge, Ohio. Yum!:) Anyway, click here to see what happens when Amish meets Italian. I think it’s pretty funny.
