Wow, it’s been quiet in the blogosphere the past week or so. Few of our “regulars” have been posting much lately, probably just because of summer, peoples’ schedules get off kilter. So I reached beyond our usual stable of bloggers and found some new ones to share with you this week.
PENNSYLVANIA DUTCH CORN PIE: This recipe comes to us from The Southern Lady Cooks and, man, it sounds good. I could eat this anytime. Click here for some corn pie.
AMISH DOUBLE CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES: Okay, I guess the only part of this recipe that is Amish per se is the blogger bought some cocoa from an Amish bulk food store. That counts, right? The cookies look and sound amazing, so click here to check out the recipe.
KATIE TROYER: I can’t help but wonder if the Amish enclave of Pinecraft is busier this summer because the weather has been so cold and crummy in the Midwest? Looks like there were some Amish sun-seekers arriving. Bus service to Pinecraft scales way, way back in the summer months. Click here to see the latest arrivals.
THE SHIPSHEWANA 500: What a quirky, delightful post from My Amish Indiana. I love these offbeat traditions that the Amish sometimes partake in. Traditions like this just show how wonderfully human the Amish are, and what a wonderful sense of humor most have. I know I’ve found that out from personal experience. We’ve all heard of the Indy 500, but the Shipshewana 500? Who knew! Click here to read this wonderful post.
MENNONITE HOT CROSS BUNS: Okay, this is a blog I discovered..it is the “Mennoneechie Kitchen”, Mennonite recipes made by a “Neechie.” Excuse my ignorance, but what is a neechie? I just haven’t heard the term before. I googled it and came up with indigenous or native... Perhaps someone out there can let us know. Either way, the recipes look intriguing. And this recipe for Hot Cross Buns looks superb, so click here to see.
