Have some fun posts this week that are packed full of deliciousness.
HOMEMADE BROWNIES: Homemade brownies are so basic, so common that I almost didn't share this post. But, in my experience, if an Amish cook has the recipe chances are its a keeper. So if you just want a basic brownie recipe from an Amish cook, give this one a try. The recipe comes from a book called "The Byler Chicks Cooking”. How can you go wrong with that!
AMISH VELVET CHOCOLATE CAKE: Like the brownies, this is another exceedingly easy, dime-a-dozen type recipe, but it in the hands of an Amish cook it's probably amazing, check out this recipe from The Amish Side of Me.
COMING AND GOING: Check out the comings and goings with the Pioneer Bus in Pinecraft, Florida and, whew, no, that is not a coffin (although the bus usually does transport a few empty ones down from time to time so Amish residents there have the simple,handmade kind they favor)...anyway, click here to see Katie Troyer's latest.
ROMANTIC BUGGY RIDES: Those who read my book, Abraham's Redemption, know that a buggy ride can be romantic. Of course, it can also be....not so romantic. Thomas Nye covers all sides of this topic in his Amish Horses blog, click here.
PUMPKINDOODLES: Oh wow, oh wow, oh wow...I posted yesterday about that Amish classic, snickerdoodles, but did you know they can be infused with pumpkin? I didn't. Do that and you have "pumpkindoodles." Check out the cookies and recipe here!
