Cooking From Scratch: Amish Onion Patties

On Mondays, I cook supper for my Mother. I always try to make one new, special thing. This Monday, it was these scrumptious Amish Onion Patties. You can serve them as a side dish, as a substitute for hash browns, as an easier version of onion rings, or as a bread, which is what I did.

These are easy to make and delicious. Give them a try!

Cooking From Scratch: Fried Corn Meal Mush, or Polenta if You Insist

My friend on Facebook, Patricia Gordon turned me on to this recipe, and I am so glad she did. Fried Corn Meal Mush, also known as Polenta, was a staple “poor people’s food” in many cultures. It is very versatile, can be used as either a side dish, a bread or a dessert, depending on what you choose to add to it.

Give this a try. I liked it and I hope you do.
