Recipe of the week: Iced Vanilla Coffee and Sunshine Coffee Cake

                Iced Vanilla Coffee
  Fill glasses with crushed ice. Add 1 tablespoon vanilla extract and fill with coffee. Some folks will prefer to add a bit of sugar. This is one of my favorites. You don't need cream or sugar, just enjoy.

  Betty Groff's newly revised and illustrated Country Goodness Cookbook is a virtual cornucopia of family recipes and home-spun anecdotes. This 326 page soft-cover edition has seasonal menus, common sense cooking, and microwave ideas. As an added bonus this book is autographed by the author.

I've created this website out of my own interest in the Amish/Mennonite culture and of living in the country. Its a place for people who are interested in the Amish like myself, and its also a place to share Images of the beautiful country side that is all around me. my name is Richard, and I live very close to an Amish settlement here in Pennsylvania. This site is dedicated to my mother, who had started all of this by taking me as a child to Lancaster,pa from our apartment in the Bronx projects..........THANK YOU MOM............... Richard
