The Amish Cook from Oasis Newsfeatures

Updates on Stuff

I'm excited about the upcoming "cooking show" that will be available on this site next week. I wrote about it a few days ago.  This show will be a great way to learn about some of the Amish cultural significance behind the recipes and provide a chance to see how some of these dishes are supposed to look when complete.  We will shoot the show this weekend and I hope to have it up and available for you to view on Monday.  The tenative line-up of recipes includes:  Amish wedding "nothings", oatmeal pie, cinnamon coffeecake and "Amish church spread."  The "nothings" also known as "knee patches" are an interesting wedding treat served in some communities.  All of these are easy to make and delicious.  The "menu" isn't 100 percent set, if someone has a recipe you'd like to suggest we prepare instead, please post your ideas here and I'll consider it.  The recipes for the dishes we make on the cooking show will be posted on this site.

Also, thanks for your thoughts and prayers about Lovina's nephew.  Little Steven is scheduled for heart surgery on Monday.  I'll let everyone know how he comes through.

Have fun filming... I look forward to watching!  Good selection of recipes.  It will be interesting to see the "nothings" made.  One simple one that I would like to see, maybe in another episode, would be the "rare beef."  It sounds quite simple, but I would really like to see it actually prepared. 

Tons of love to little Steven and family... that little boy is being lifted HIGH on prayers.  Glad to hear little Lovina is doing well, also.  They are so lucky to have such a tight-knit, wonderful family/extended family to call upon in times of need.
