Classic Amish Cinnamon Rolls: This is an amazing recipe, here is a bit more about it: I've become quite the Amish cinnamon roll connoisseur over the years. I have the expanded jeans size to prove that. SIGH. I've tasted caramel pecan cinnamon rolls, pumpkin cinnamon rolls, and coffee-iced cinnamon rolls. But I keep coming back to basics as my favorite, your classic, tried-and-true white-iced cinnamon rolls. The icing is key but so is the filling. Nothing worse than a dry cinnamon roll inside. And nothing beats homemade cinnamon rolls. SIGH, I have tried store-bought cinnamon rolls and they just can't compare. Yeah, those Pillsbury rolls in a can will do in a pinch, but only in a pinch. They just aren't the same as the fluffy cinnamon rolls that are true to Amish tradition.

Skillet Spaghetti: Skillet spaghetti is a favorite on Amish farms. Unlike the Italian kitchens I grew up in, spaghetti is often prepared differently. In my childhood, spaghetti was treated with almost religious reverence. The pot was prepared, oil and salt added to the water and brought to a roaring boil. The sauce simmered elsewhere on the stove. My grandmother would declare spaghetti done when a piece stuck to the wall. She'd take out a small strand and stick it to the wall. And then, when it was time, spaghetti would be piled high on plates and that was the meal. Here is this recipe.
Old-Fashioned Amish Sausage Pie: Absolutely a super supper!
One-Pot Chicken: This is a super recipe also: One-pot meals like this are so popular among the Amish because during a busy day you can just sort of dump all in the ingredients into a big kettle, cover, and let simmer. The Amish were doing slow-cooker meals long before there were slow cookers. You can do this one-pot meal in 20 - 25 minutes of cooking but, you can also put your heat on low and let the meal simmer for a long. Personally, I like it best like that. Gives a chance for the flavors to really meld and combine. There's also a LOT of versatility with this recipe. For instance, in hindsight, I'd probably add corn to this. Possibly even some tomatoes and just let it simmer. There's just a lot you can do with a recipe like this. Enjoy this meal!
