MeeMaw's Double Crunch Onion Rings: I got some onion rings are Burger King recently and, dang, they were so stingy with them. The onion rings were tiny and the container was about half full. No, if I am going to get onion rings, I want big, crunchy rings.
The casual dining chain, Red Robin, has consistently good onion rings. But, wow, these double crunch onion rings from MeeMaw look amazing (MeeMaw is a food blogger in Kalona, Iowa, home of the state's largest Amish settlement and their influence does often seep into her cooking and baking).

Dessert Recipes From Lehman's: Lehman's is that mainstay of Ohio's Amish country and off-the-grid survivalists. I could - and have - spend hours aimlessly wandering the aisles of this amazing and sprawling hardware/home store in Kidron, Ohio. You do get a good mix of customers there, from local Amish browsing for essentials to the survivalists to the tourists. The company founder's granddaughter posted several amazing-sounding dessert recipes from a recent Lehman's cookbook. Click here for three sweet treats, wow, the carrot cake looks superb.
Amish Casserole: Found this on a blog, simply "Amish Casserole." Casserole recipes like this are a dime-a-dozen in Amish cookbooks, packed full of off-the-shelf, easy ingredients, perfect for comfort during a pandemic. Click here to enjoy!
