I am not a huge raisin bread fan but if you cover anything in enough icing it eventually becomes good. And this Amish Cinnamon Raisin Bread is no exception. Of course if you like raisins then this bread has a double dose of delight for you: raisins and icing.

Super Sirloin Steak: Nothing like a nice steak supper. Here is a bit about this recipe: Among the Amish, most have access to their own home-butchered supply of meat. So steaks and chops are in plentiful supply, usually, which means recipes for fixing those steaks can be real gems. In fact, Gloria Yoder, who pens the Amish Cook column fixes her steaks by marinating sliced steaks in Italian dressing mixed with seasoning salt for 24 hours. Then wrap each steak with a slice of bacon. Then grrill both sides until no longer pink on the inside. Click here for the recipe.

Amish Peach Custard Dessert: This is a super dessert for these last warm, waning days of summer, which I think is why it is trending:

My parents, usually once a year, order in some peaches from South Carolina where the crop seems especially juicy and sweet. Ohio isn't a huge peach state, but I sure like peaches
