Okay, let's visit some of our old favorites on the internet to see what other Amish-related material we can find. First:
AMISH GINGER COOKIES: Check out Patricia's adaptation of our Amish Ginger Cookies. Wow, she did a great job with them. Check out the recipe and photos here!
LOADED CHICKEN AND POTATOES: Home Joys is a blog written by a young Mennonite Mom and widow in Pennsylvania. Her blog is a mix of recipes, reflections, and inspiration. Recently she shared a hearty recipe that I thought everyone here would like. Click here to see the recipe.
A SERENE, PEACEFUL PHOTO: An Amish farmstead during a snowstorm is quite unlike anything I've experience. The soft snow silences everything into serenity. The warmth of the woodstove seems to be extra inviting. The food extra alluring. There's this sense of being cocooned up in a coziness that is captured perfectly in this Bruce Stambaugh photo of an home Amish farm after a now.
KATIE TROYER: For newbies here, Katie is a former Amish church member...she still lives plainly and lives in Pinecraft, Florida, which is the only Amish settlement in the state. The Amish in Florida are a quirky mix of Old Order traditionalist and modern Mennonites and she captures the mish-mash wonderfully, check out these photos.
HOW THE AMISH CAME TO VERMONT: A great read about how the Amish started their first settlement several years ago in the great state of Vermont! Click here.
