Welcome to my blog, thank you for stopping by. If this is your first time to my blog, it's nice to meet you. If you've been here before, welcome back.

My writing journey has begun. The road will have some bumps and detours. I only hope that the first hill is not too high, and the journey is long.

     These two books are a wonderful mix of pleasure and fun! I have been a fan of Wanda E. Brunstetter for years. She brings you into this simple lifestyle with such a great story sense. If you have read any of Wanda’s books, why not open this door to your children. They will love the “misadventures” and pure joy of reading about little Rachel Yoder. I enjoyed reading these two books. I am recommending these books together because once you have read the first you will want to continue on reading about Rachel.

Amish Ginger Cookies Recipe

1 cup granulated sugar
1 egg 1/4 cup molasses
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1 teaspoon ground cloves
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
Extra granulated sugar


     Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a mixing bowl, beat together butter and 1 cup sugar until creamy. Add egg and molasses; beat until combined. Add the remaining ingredients and mix until well combined. Roll dough into 1-inch balls and roll in the extra granulated sugar. Place balls on ungreased baking sheet. Bake for 5 - 7 minutes until barely turning brown.

Allow to cool for 1 minute on baking sheet and then remove to wire racks to cool completely cooled.
Don’t Forget The Milk!
