Veggie Delight

What a great snack to offer a guest or eat for your lunch! Cucumbers filled with a veggie dip, topped with dill & tomato and surrounded with carrots. It was a lot of fun making this. It turned out so colorful you couldn’t help but want to devour the entire plate. Start by washing and slicing a cucumber. Using a knife, […]

Spinach With Bacon

Spinach fresh from our garden! This is the first picking and it was 8 oz of bright green Spinach leaves, just perfect for lunch. It always amazes me how much Spinach cooks down. You start out with this gigantic pan full of Spinach and once cooked, only a few cups remain. My favorite way to eat Spinach is cooked and […]

Rhubarb Sauce

I love Rhubarb anything! I have been eating Rhubarb since I was a kid. I made this recipe to put on my English muffins. It is like eating a tart applesauce and I even eat it right out of the bowl. Although Rhubarb is officially a vegetable, a lot of people consider it a fruit. This is probably due to […]

Stuffed Mushrooms

Oh how I love stuffed mushrooms! I should call these Mushroom Surprise because in the center of each Mushroom Cap is a piece of sausage link. I did not have ground sausage so I cooked up some sausage links, cut each link into four pieces and placed a piece in the center of each Mushroom Cap. For this recipe I used all […]

Asparagus Soup

I know it is warm outside and not really soup weather, however, this soup needs to be made when the asparagus grows in our garden………..when it’s free! It is the best tasting Asparagus Soup I have ever tasted and I make it every year. I tore this recipe out of a magazine years ago and have modified it into this […]

Amish Style Chicken & Noodles

This is an Amish Chicken & Noodles recipe we found years ago and we have adapted to our taste. I find this especially good because it makes a large batch. We make it the first day with homemade mashed potatoes. The second day we eat the leftovers without the mashed potatoes. This is another one of my favorite meals. Very […]

Corn Casserole or Bread

Corn Casserole is a great dish to make for a home meal, brunch or any type of “bring a covered dish” get together. It can be whipped up in a matter of minutes. You can cook it a little longer, as I did, to make it more of a cornbread consistency or you can cook it less for a more […]

Last fall I went to Amish Country and found Pickled Asparagus and knew I had to make it with my home grown Asparagus! Start by holding a stalk in the middle and at the root end. […]

Marinated Mushrooms

I don’t know what I like better, cooked mushrooms or Marinated Mushrooms. I used to always buy Marinated Mushrooms from the store and they were so expensive. Now I make my own and they taste just like the ones I used to buy. I wait until they go on sale and buy a few containers just for this recipe. They […]

Dandelion Greens Salad

Yes you read it right! I went into my backyard and picked myself some fresh Dandelion Greens and made a fabulous salad. My husband was chicken to try it! I added mushrooms, bacon, tomatoes, my home grown dried basil, salt, pepper, croutons and Italian Dressing. I don’t have pets, so I just rinsed it good and it was ready to eat. […]

Because it is just starting to pop up, I check it every two days and pick what ever is ready. I store it in the refrigerator until I have a big enough batch to eat. […]

One of my favorite vegetables is broccoli. This recipe has a great combination of broccoli, bacon, cheese and a wonderful and sweet tasting mayo dressing that is homemade. Another quick and easy recipe that can be made the day before or just a few hours before serving. Begin by washing the broccoli. Cut the florets of the broccoli into small pieces. Add the bacon […]
