Coming this Fall... The Amish Cook 20th Anniversary Cookbook!!


I absolutely LOVE this series of cookbooks from The Amish Cook. If you aren't a fan yet on Facebook, I suggest "becoming a fan" so you can keep up to date with all the latest Amish news as well as the cookbook updates! Kevin and Lovina do a "Vunderful Gut" job of writing. :)

God is AWESOME! The Laymon and Esh family gather for fellowship!


God is awesome. Here's a photo taken this weekend in Burkesville, KY of Misty Laymon and family (wife of Kenneth Laymon-truck driver) with the surviving Eshes, and Lester (Joel) Gingeriches (left). God bless them all. ♥ What a wonderful example of forgiveness even though it was a horrific accident! Let's examine our own lives. How quickly are we to forgive when we face tragedy in the face?

Laid to Rest Esh Family

Another day on our mini farm.




Today we had a busy day enhancing our little farm. We put up a goat fence and assembled our chicken house It feels good to live off the land as much as possible. I can't wait to start planting my garden.

Time spent...


It was nice to spend sometime with my mom and sister today. We haven't gotten together to color eggs since we were young girls! It sure was a treat on a lovely spring afternoon.

Another day on the farm....




We don't actually have a "farm" but it might as well be. We live in rural PA surrounded by farms. I get my milk right from my neighbor's dairy, homemade cheese from my brother-in-law, and farm fresh brown eggs from my other neighbor. Until now. We currently purchase a small batch of peeps to raise as laying hens. I got them a week and a half ago and can't believe how quickly they grow!!! Yesterday temperatures hit over 71 degrees so I gave these little ones some freedom from their "box" to enjoy some green grass and sunshine. :) Ahhhhh.... I love spring!!
