Amish Chicken Supreme Casserole: This is a hearty, easy casserole, let's read more about it here: Amish Chicken Supreme Casserole is one of these classic Amish casseroles that some readers will say “this is not an Amish casserole", it has Velveeta cheese and canned soup in it!” But, I have addressed this issue before, this type of convenience cooking using processed foods is really not uncommon in Amish communities. The post-World War II industrial boom transformed Amish culinary culture. The Amish generally live in very rural areas and canned soups and cheeses packed with preservatives held up well when shipped to rural areas. They were convenient and cheap. Hence the appearance of such ingredients in recipes like Amish Chicken Supreme Casserole. Click here for the recipe.

Amish Homemade Cheese-Stuffed Meatloaf: Why add cheese to meatloaf? Well, isn't everything better with cheese? Actually there are many reasons: My grandma would add Parmesan cheese to her meatloaf and her meatballs. The cheese gives the ground beef something to adhere to and does add some nice additional flavor. Amish cooks are also fond of adding cheese to ground beef...click here for the recipe!

Resfreshing Iced Buttermilk Cookies: These are so good. Read more here:
Some of the best, most flavorful cookies I've ever had are made with buttermilk. I remember first trying these Refreshing Iced Buttermilk Cookies at an Amish bakery in Nappannee, Indiana years and years and years ago. Years later, I picked up a batch of buttermilk cookies at an Amish bakery in Daviess County, Indiana and the flavor was like I remembered them the first time: soft and sweet, but not overpoweringly so. Almost a perfect cookie. Click here for the recipe.
