From Miriam Flaud: Like passing plates of steaming meat and vegetables at the dinner table, we often pass stories around during mealtime. Since our oldest boys are married with homes of their own, we rarely have the whole family here for a meal, but when we do, it seems that the conversation is the main course…

Now that our many holiday traditions and celebrations are behind us for a while, I thought I’d share a few things with you about how the Amish bring in the New Year. Last week, I shared a bit about the foods that cultures such as the South, the Mediterranean, and the Spanish eat on New Year’s Day. The Pennsylvania Dutch have a unique New Year’s tradition, as well. They enjoy a meal of pork and sauerkraut each New Year’s Day.
We have a guest blogger today: Melissa Norris. She’s prepared a tutorial on how to make your own homemade applesauce, as well as a fun idea and recipe on how to turn it into a homemade Christmas gift! Be sure to read to the end of the post for a special offer just for my readers and a chance to win Melissa’s book, Pioneering Today–Faith and Home the Old Fashioned Way.
When you hear the word autumn, you probably don’t envision Gulf breezes, palm trees, and hibiscus flowers in full bloom. But even in my tropical village of Pinecraft (in the heart of Sarasota, Florida), autumn is as distinct a season as it is for folks in the north.

I love a good recipe. And what could be more satisfying than a mouth-watering dish with a heartwarming (and sometimes hilarious) descriptive story to go along with it?
My new book, A Season for Tending, releases in just one week! Join me as I share a small scene from the story, a delicious recipe for apple dumplings, and a video of Sherry Gore and I discussing the recipe and my new novel.
What inspires you to have a picnic? Perhaps it’s the warm weather that motivates you to grab a glass of lemonade and a sandwich and head outside. Any meal eaten outside can be done in picnic fashion. As a little Amish girl, I loved to take my lunch and sit on the front steps of the old farmhouse where I grew up.
