Perfect Amish Corn Chip Salad: This salad is super. I mean, how can you go wrong with corn chips? (Hint: you can't). Here is more about this recipe: Perfect Picnic Corn Chip Salad is right up the wheelhouse for many Amish cooks. First of all, you’d be surprised how popular salty snacks are in Amish communities. Sometimes it’s a little disheartening to see how a once very locavore diet has become filled with canned and bagged processed foods. This is the case in many Amish communities, whenever I visit an Amish home I see bags of chips, potato chips, Doritos to a lesser extent, and Fritos corn chips are very popular, I have found. So, what could be better than Fritos in a salad? Click here for the recipe.

Easy Hobo Supper: This is delicious: My wife made this dish once and it was great. Like other recipes we have featured lately, this is a hearty, stick-to-your-ribs casserole. There are a couple of variations on the "hobo supper." Well, there are many, some are made in foil packets. Others have smoky links instead of hot dogs. But they all are pretty easy and cheap to throw together. Click here for the recipe.
Six-Ingredient Shipwreck Casserole: This is a delicious meal. Read more here: You see, Shipwreck is a recipe that used to appear in many Amish cookbooks around the middle of the 20th century. By the time Elizabeth Coblentz included this in our cookbook materials the recipe was slipping out of culinary culture and you hardly see it today. This is an early example of a recipe becoming popular in pop culture and then being embraced by Amish cooks. They likely saw this as a hearty meal during lean times. Click here.

Refreshing Carrot-Pineapple Muffins: So amazing. You can read more about them: Muffins, as a rule, are kind of not my favorite. Too often they are bland or overstuffed with calories (I'm thinking of those giant Otis Spunkmeyer wrapped muffins). But these refreshing carrot-pineapple muffins are stuffed with vitamin-filled veggies and fruit and, yeah, I'd love to spread a little cream cheese on these and enjoy! Of course, if you are counting calories then slathering these muffins with cream cheese may not be the way to go. Click here.
Sour Cream Cookies: An easy, delicious cookie!
Super Moist Chocolate Zucchini Bars: Amazing! Zucchini is sort of like sauerkraut in that it can be shredded or grated and added to a surprising array of items to add bulk and flavor. This chocolate zucchini bar recipe is one such example. I've had these before and I don't know that anyone is going to walk away from eating saying "gee, that zucchini sure was great!", but it adds a texture and flavor that really makes for a mellow, moist bar. This recipe is popular in Amish kitchens this time of year. So enjoy! Click here.
