    You do a great job with all the recipes. We that admire the Amish know about them not wanting their picture taken. They are very private people and stand by their beliefs. We need to respect them and their beliefs.

    Some of the best recipes I have were from Elizabeth- her meatloaf recipe is a favorite of my granddaughter.

      That meatloaf is an awesome recipe!

    I can understand people wanting pictures of Amish ladies and the food they make. But like you said Kevin, they are not interested in having their picture taken. I grew up with Amish families all around here in North Central Indiana so I know how there cherish their privacy. Thanks for the articles that you share.

    Your articles are always so respectful of the Amish and give us an insight into their lives. You do such a great job Kevin – I feel some just don’t understand the Amish and have not followed you a long time to know they share all they have but not themselves which is so admirable!!! We should learn from them!!!
    Thank you for all you do Kevin!!

    I always thought of “Amish” recipes to conjure an image of simple,homestyle foods made with basic ingredients that most people keep in their pantries. Roasts with garden vegetables, chicken with hearty noodles and gravy , basically just good comfort foods and an occasional “English” recipe like a taco casserole that proves Amish keep up with their own ways but still live among us and embrace little bits and pieces of “English” ways as well.

      Well said, Christina!

    I agree with all above Keven. You indeed do a awesome job with everything you write. As for the Duggers I just wish people would leave them alone, and let them handle this. We do not know everything that happened. I do not trust the media.I do believe the story about Josh I get that. Okey it is over. I believe a lot of things have been added to it. The media eats up all this hype. After all it sells news. As for TLC dropping them. Has anyone watched any of their shows lately. Tacky is all I can think of to describe them.

    I guess I am sort of amazed that someone would question whether a picture is authentic or not and what would it matter? A dish is still a dish regardless of the source and a picture of someone stuffing it into their mouth. I guess some people just like to complain. My idea of Amish fare is pretty much the same as the poster Christina’s. Good, wholesome,everyday comfort food.
