Take a Spring Tour
The only time we find more colorful and beautiful than spring in Ohio Amish Country is fall.
After a long winter - with the pale colors of snow and bare trees, there's a special beauty that comes with spring.
The spring flowers, budding leaves and fruit blossoms of spring bring a special excitement and anticipation of new life, warmer weather and fresh air.
The smell of locust tree blossoms and lilacs will soon be wafting through the air as the hillsides and fields become alive with fresh greenery of a new season.
All that to say - make plans to visit Ohio Amish Country now and take a tour around this spring, you'll be glad you did!
Featured Recipe of the Month
12 c. cooked, cubed potatoes
12 eggs, hard boiled
1 1/2 c. chopped celery
1 c. diced, cooked carrots
1 chopped onion, optional
3 c. Miracle Whip
6 Tbsp. mustard
1/4 c. vinegar
3 c. sugar
4 tsp. salt
Mix all together. This makes a Fix'n'Mix bowl almost full. This is better when made the day before serving.

I asked what would be a good feature for this month - my eldest daughter responded, "If in doubt - Cheese!" To which I must agree. We had purchased some cheese from Sam's Club recently. When we ate some of it for a meal, another one of my daughters said, "This certainly isn't Amish cheese!"
Now, if you've never had real Amish artisan made cheese - well, you've never had (in our humble opinion) real cheese! The flavor, texture and ingredients just can't be matched pound for pound and dollar for dollar. And if you have experienced Amish cheese - well, you just know what we mean!
So, here's a link to our website page that lists some of the places where you can go to get Amish-made cheese. There are also many shops, stores and delis that sell Amish cheese as well. Just be on the lookout as you travel around. And by all means - get some cheese!
