🥗 Trending Amish Salads
Refreshing Creamsicle Salad: Nothing can beat the heat of summer better than this refreshing creamsicle salad! Check it out here.
Perfect Picnic Corn Chip Salad: This salad is perfect at any summer picnic or potluck. Here's a bit more info: 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 salad recipe.
🍞 Trending Amish Breads
Amish Cinnamon Roll Muffins: This is a nice twist on a tradition, especially during the summer. When it's hot out, you might not want a big heavy softball-sized cinnamon roll. But how about these smaller versions? Cinnamon rolls are a mainstay in Amish kitchens, so why not Amish Cinnamon Roll Muffins? There are so many cinnamon roll recipes, from caramel to pecan to fruit-filled cinnamon rolls. Through it all, the kneading, the baking, the age-old family recipes, give the cinnamon roll a mystique in the Amish kitchen. SIGH, for me, there is nothing better than a big, fat, puffy, caramel-smothered cinnamon roll that is warm. Holy moly, that is the pinnacle of Amish deliciousness. Click here for the recipe.

Amish Pizza Casserole: This casserole is good anytime of year: This Amish pizza casserole one of these classic "throw together" casseroles that are so synonymous with Amish cooking.

The average Amish homemaker is busy with sewing, cleaning, helping children with homework, keeping the stove running in winter, laundry, tending to any sick, writing letters, etc...as the children get older they can and do help with housework but, still, given the myriad of tasks an Amish Mom needs to balance recipes that are hearty and easy carry the day and this recipe is one of those.
