Amish Cooking

A few days ago I finished writing Book 2 in my Amish Cooking Class series. This novel, about an Amish woman who teaches cooking classes in her home, is called “The Blessing.” Several recipes that Heidi Troyer teaches her students are included in the book. My husband and I have eaten many meals in our Amish friends’ homes, and we’ve never been disappointed. There’s no doubt in my mind–most Amish women are excellent cooks. Several Amish friends have shared recipes with me, like the one below. Do you have a favorite recipe you like to fix for family or friends? Feel free to tell about it or share the recipe here.

Stuffed Green Pepper Soup

1/2 cup green peppers, chopped
1 pound ground beef, browned
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
2 tablespoons
Parmesan cheese
1 pint tomato juice
2/3 cup rice, cooked
1/8 – 1/4 cup brown sugar, or to taste

Combine all the ingredients in a large saucepan and cook until the peppers are done.

  1. Hi Wanda, they say a good cooked meal is a way to a man’s heart but in my case my husband does all the cooking.He is a very good cook and knows his way around the kitchen,so I guess you could say that he won my heart.He has entered some different contest and won and I must add that he is not a chef.One other thing,he is penna.dutch.

    • I have never had Green Pepper Soup. Maybe that is something I should try.

    • Hi Wanda -It,s been some time since I’ve cooked stuffed peppers. This is a great Green Pepper Soup and has brought back memories when we had a great mother daughter vacation in the Amish Country. I made it today and invited over my knitting group. Everyone loved it and wanted the receipt.

    I love to good anything in the crock pot that I can. I get a lot of interesting recipes from Facebook. One of my favorites is for pork chops .
    Crock pot Ranch Pork Chops
    Pack of center cut pork chops. I usually buy the 6 pack.
    Can of Cream of Chicken condensed soup.
    Pack of dry Hidden Valley Ranch dressing Mix
    Brown pork chops
    Place chops in bottom of crock pot.
    Add soup. Sprinkle ranch dressing Mix all over chops.
    Cover and cook on high for 4 hours or low for 6 hours.

    I enjoy cooking and baking for my family. I want to try the recipes you shared in The Seekers. A beautiful story that I loved reading Thanks to Barbour Publishing I received an ARC of the book and have posted reviews where allowed.

    Here’s a favorite muffin recipe my family and friends enjoy.

    Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Muffins

    1 ¾ cups all purpose flour
    2/3 cup packed brown sugar
    1 ½ teaspoons baking powder
    ¼ teaspoon salt
    1 egg
    ¾ cup milk
    2/3 cup chunky peanut butter
    ¼ cup vegetable oil
    1 ½ teaspoons vanilla extract
    2/3 cup semisweet or milk chocolate chips (I use the chocolate/peanut butter chips)

    In a large bowl, combine the first four ingredients. In another bowl,
    combine the egg, milk, peanut butter, oil and vanilla. Stir into the
    Into dry ingredients just until moistened. Fold in chocolate chips.
    Fill greased or paper-line muffin cups two-thirds full.

    Bake at 350 degrees for 22-25 minutes. Cool before removing to
    wire rack. Yield: 1 dozen

    Option: These muffins also make wonderful mini muffins. Use mini
    chocolate chips. Bake for 15-17 minutes or until a toothpick comes
    out clean. Yield: 4 dozen

    I will try this recipe

  5. I think this is the first time I have seen a recipe for stuffed green pepper soup. My favorite soup is Cheddar broccoli soup and I always add extra broccoli.

  6. Debra Howell says:

    I also love things I can make in my crock pot. Start it in the morning and it’s ready for supper later! Here is something I just tried a couple weeks ago and it was a hit at church!

    CROCK POT CANDY
    1 (4 ounce) bar baker’s German chocolate
    24 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips
    24 ounces white chocolate chips
    1 (32 ounce) jar dry roasted salted peanuts

    Directions
    Stir all ingredients in a slow cooker. Cook on low for 3 hours. Do not lift lid or stir. After 3 hours, stir well for 3-5 minutes. Drop spoonfuls onto wax paper to cool. Or, spread on wax paper and cut into squares when cool.

    Although I only let it cook on low for about 90 minutes. Then I stirred it and let it cook another 15 minutes. Stirred and dropped on wax paper

    Hi Wanda, One recipe I treasure is my Grandmother’s barbecue Sauce..She never wrote it down..It was stored in her head..(She always said, “Little bit of this, Little bit of that)..One day I was at her house, I was around 13..She was making barbecue chicken..She said to me, I will tell you what I put in my sauce, but you are not to tell anyone..She never measured anything..She just kept tasting it until it had just the right taste..And I did the same thing she did…She always seemed to know when she tasted it, what it was lacking..So, I always made it for my kids, which they liked..I told my daughter how to make it, but she was the only one..And to this day, I never measure anything, I taste it..So in respect for my Grandmother I will not write the ingredients down as it would be hard to put the amounts of each item…….But, I will try this recipe you shared…Thank You …

  8. Crissy Y Shamion says:

    Love a good home cooked meal! Saving this recipe.

  9. Kathy Rowe says:

    I have, also, had many meals with an Amish family we are friends with. I am never disappointed. Yes, the Amish are very good cooks for sure. I cannot pick out one thing that is my favorite because it’s all good! As I get older, I find that I don’t like to cook as much as I used to. I do like to have a bowl of potato soup on a cold day or a bowl of chili.
    Look forward to all your new books. Please enter me in the giveaway. Thank you.

  10. I’m not a very good cook but still love too read all your book. I don’t ever miss reading all your books even if I get them from my local library which I do often. Would Love To Be at One of your book signings you have at Pinecraft,Fl. but so far I’m always working that day. I’d Love To Win one of your books. God Bless & Happy Early Anniversary to You & Richard.

  11. Love to read your books. Can’t wait to read your new one.

  12. Denise Burek says:

    Hi Wanda! Stuffed Pepper Soup is one of my favorites. My husband is an avid hunter, so I am blessed to be able to use venison from his deer harvest as well as veggies from my garden in my soup. I also use brown rice instead of white and it tastes wonderful. I look forward to reading your latest book. Thank you for the giveaway opportunity.

  13. Your soup recipe looks like it would be really good.Love the other recipes people posted Have you heard of Sweet and Sour Cabbage Soup.I had it at a restaurant in Centralia,Missouri and it was very good.I went there to visit my aunt.There are a lot of Amish shops and bakeries there.Very pretty there in the summer.

  14. I enjoy new recipes, but have a few favorites I return to often. The most simple ones I seem to like the best. I recently tried baking my pancakes in a sprayed and slightly buttered casserole dish. I made the layer medium thin. I put chocolate mini chips and slices strawberries out of the freezer on top, and baked at 325, because I used a glass dish. It took about 40 minutes total in my over. I pulled it out when golden brown. It was much easier than frying them, and much less greasy.. I used regular Bisquick pancake recipe. I tested it with a tooth pick, just like a cake, it came out superb. It made four meals. I don’t. think I will ever fry them again.

    • Ann, would you mind sharing your recipe for your baked pancakes, I can not visualize baking a pancake and having four meals from it.
      Thank You

  15. Susan Campbell says:

    Thank you for the recipe I will make it today. I use a crock pot a lot as I do Family Childcare and I like making meals that can cook while I do other things.

  16. I love Amish cooking which I got to get lots of while in New York. It was yummy. So now I collect every recipe I can and so I appreciate yours so much! Can’t wait to read this next book. Love your books so much!

  17. Becky Roberts says:

    Wanda, thank you for this! I love reading your blog and especially when I can have a green pepper soup which one of my friends loves dearly. She knows I can’t really cook but if you keep posting things like this, I might not scare her as much anyway!

  18. JODI VENEZIA says:

    Every Thanksgiving it is like a tradition to have my Grammy’s stuffing. Her family is from Lithuania so she made Lithuanian stuffing. It is like a tradition. Every year we always look forward to it! When she passed away in 2014 it broke my heart considering she was my best friend! Can’t wait to read your newest series!!! You are my favorite author!!!!

  19. Jane I Staiger says:

    I loved reading about the various recipes…I don’t really have a specialties. I do cook in the crock pot…as it is so easy. This week I made ham and cabbage (always a favorite of ours_…but I only used half the cabbage this time. Sometimes it is just too much for the two of us…and I don’t freeze cabbage. So less is better for my husband and I. I enjoy baking banana bread….never throw way a banana…it goes into the freezer…skin and all when turning. My entire family enjoys my banana bread. I will definitely be trying the pork chop recipe I saw on here. And I want to mention that February 14 is a special day for my family..not only Valentines Day…but our 2nd child, Janice, was born on Valentines Day ….a Sunday….in 1965….she has always been my Valentine gift from my husband! God’s blessings on all…..

  20. kelly waugh says:

    Thank you for the recipe, I have a recipe for this kind of soup, but this one is different, so I’m looking forward to trying it. I love the old-fashion “snail” mail, seems to be a lost art now days to write letters. But I love getting “fun mail” as I call it & was so excited to get 3 pieces of fun mail over the lastc ouple of weeks from some new Amish friends I made. God is so good, & knows how to brighten my day. God Bless you

  21. Darlene Truax says:

    I love recipes and trying new ones….. I’m a self admitted recipeaholic!! I clip and copy and try. Carcasses from turkey and chicken dinners go into the freezer with some generous meat left on. I make soup for our son’s storefront ministry in a small economically challenged city and for our twice a month home Bible study — “Soup ‘n Study.” Hospitality is what I do, so that’s my excuse for checking out and trying new recipes. February 14th holds a special memory for my husband and I, that’s the day in 1995 that we sat in a surgeon’s office and heard “cancer” and how he was planning to remediate it. Twenty-two years later the LORD has blessed us by his still being with us. So our hearts are filled each February 14th with gratitude to God….. and we are grateful every day!

  22. Sandra Hatfield says:

    I enjoy trying new recipes, I have an over abundance of cook books which are my passion. I have been collecting cook books since I was a teen. Every small community that I have travelled through that have published a cook book I purchase. Some of the small towns in Nova Scotia have some interesting recipes to say the least. Can’t wait for the Amish Cooking Class to be released. If it is anything at all like the Half Stitched Amish Quilting Club it is a winner. Keep on writing!

  23. I am really looking forward to your new book.

  24. Theresa Babcock says:

    I love your recipes and your cookbooks. My daughter bought me three of them last year for my birthday. I look at them often. Cooking is a healthy way for me to stay motivated. I feel so accomplished when the recipe comes out right! Happy February Wanda and Happy Valentine’s Day.

  25. Sarah Arnold says:

    Amish cooking is delicious. I loved the book “The Seekers” and hope to make some of the recipes. I love going to Lancaster and eating Amish cooking. I don’t think I have a favorite recipe but I have several places that I like to eat.

  26. Kathy Baker says:

    hey Wanda

    I have been following you for awhile. but have yet to try a recipe. that will change soon. I look your books and get so much out of them.

  27. Elizabeth Phifer DeGraffenreid says:

    My husband likes it when I cook my roast that will make its own gravy from a can of mushroom soup. But the family goes a little nuts over my homemade chicken and dumplings.

  28. Roberta McMahan says:

    First time I ate Amish cooking was in Okla. I was hooked I have never tasted anything so good. Since we do not eat meat anymore will have to figure out a way with our veg meat. Can’t wait to read this book. It looks Awesome

  29. THANK YOU FOR ALL THE GREAT BOOKS THAT YOU WRITE AND TO YOUR HUSBAND FOR SHARING SO MAY BEAUTIFUL PICTURES. I HOPE I AM CHOSEN BUT IF NOT I WILL BE VERY HAPPY THAT SOME ELSE WILL HAVE A CHANCE TO OWN ONE OF YOUR BOOKS.

  30. I have eaten Amish cooking only twice, but it was exceptional. Your recipe looks good, but I would have to leave the peppers out. They never sit well in my body.

  31. awesome going to try this sounds so good..love yourbools

  32. Brenda Anderson says:

    I love trying new recipes, especially in the crockpot. The pork chop recipe really sounds good! Thanks for sharing!

  33. Linda Critcher says:

    My husband loves Scalloped potatoes, a recipe shared with me in the 70’s by a special Christian friend, there’s really no recipe. Just trial and error. I spray my pan or bowl with vegetable spray.

    It consists of thinly slicing peeled potatoes, and layering the potatoes, topped with chunks/slices of cheddar cheese, pieces of margarine, sprinkle of flour, and salt &a pepper. This continues until the last layer (don’t use any flour on the top layer). Pour a can of evaporated milk over the completed dish. I usually add addition milk (any type) until the level of liquid is about half way up the pan/dish. Bake in preheated oven, 400 degrees for approx an hour (may take longer). Since milk is used in this dish it can overflow, so I put foil in a long pan and set my dish/pan in it to prevent oven cleanup). Bake until potatoes are done and most of the liquid has evaporated. Need some moisture so they won’t be dry. If the top blackens, it still tastes delicious.

    (Ps I DO NOT use onions in this recipe as many scalloped potato dishes call for, but if you prefer, use them in the layers as well). Enjoy…I miss my friend Virginia, but was blessed to have her in my life as a Christian mentor and friend. Will reunite with her one day in Heaven.

  34. I love reading your books and trying all the recipes in them. My family and I drove past an amish farm a coupke sundays ago and they were having church in the home. The sight was absolutely amazing. I had to explain to my family why there was so many amish buggies.

  35. Lory Mathieu says:

    Looks delicious and easy to make. I will definitely make this!

  36. I would love a chance at receiving your newest book….thanks so much

  37. I love reading all of the recipes and comments on here, I will have to try some of them, the recipe that I get a lot of request for is my Banana Butterscotch Bread. Any banana bread recipe would work and then you just add some butterscotch chips, so very good and just a different flavor added to the bread. I may have to take the last loaf out of the freezer now that I am talking about it.

  38. Mary Roelke says:

    I really like to cook & bake. I have made the stuffed pepper soup. Thanks to the other people who left recipes in their comment.

  39. Melissa Carpenter says:

    I always enjoy baking and looking at new recipes. Thanks for the recipe Wanda. I will have to try this one it looks good.

  40. peggy clayton says:

    Hi Wanda I love bell peppers so your recipe sounds so good but I also like stuffed bell peppers and it is so good and as a leftover since husband is laid off till April it is good to have a lot of leftovers as he eats them for lunch and also for breakfast. Have a good Valentines Day!

  41. Dee Carter says:

    One of my favorite Amish recipes is Corn Chowder. I make it often in the winter time. I do change it around a little for less calories…… I have a few Amish cookbooks but two small paper backs are the best. That’s where the Corn Chowder came from. Thanks for your books, recipes and friendship.

  42. Teresa Johnson says:

    My husband does most of the cooking because after all the heart attacks and strokes he can’t drive a semi anymore. I will ask him to add this soup to next weeks’ menu. I love to come home from work to the smell of soup cooking. Thanks for sharing this recipe!

  43. Sharon Miller says:

    I enjoy making soups in the winter. I am going to make the Stuffed Pepper Soup this weekend for our Super Bowl party. I planned to make several kinds of soups, and this will be one of them. Thank you for it, and bless you for all the wonderful books that you write. I enjoy every one of them!

  44. Sally Davison says:

    Recipes are my hobby, collecting and trying out new ones often. I’m sharing a long time family favorite:
    Chocolate Haystacks

    1 small pkg butterscotch morsels
    1 small pkg chocolate morsels
    1 cup cashew or peanuts, chopped
    1 medium size can or 1/2 large pkg chow mein noodles
    Over low heat melt morsels. Add chopped nuts, noodles. Drop by spoonful on foil or wax paper & chill in refrigerator. Makes approx. 2 dozen

  45. Delilah England says:

    I’m going to make the Stuffed Pepper Soup for my BUNCO group in March, Know they will enjoy it

  46. I love all of Wanda s books trying to read everyone as I have a eye disease and may soon not be able to read my mom has it and I have the beginning of it so I enjoy her books as they are so up lifting

  47. Diann Larry says:

    I have never had stuffed pepper soup but we love stuffed peppers. I love trying new recipes though so I may just try this and maybe one from the comments above. 🙂

  48. Stephanie H. says:

    Even though I have made stuffed peppers in the past, I haven’t heard of this type of soup before. I will have to try it along with the rest of the recipes in your new book, which I’m looking forward to reading. I enjoy cooking for my family and one of my favorite recipes is for pot roast with potatoes, onions, and carrots.

  49. Hi, just love learning about the Amish. I have a confession, I read more about the Amish then I do the word. That is so wrong and I know it. I check out books from the library and enjoy the cook books. Would love to go and spend a day with a family, I’m in Ky and see the Amish all the time.. Have so much respect for them and the ways of God. I’m on a limited income and can’t buy the books but do get them at yard sales sometimes. Thank you for writing and bringing insight into the people of the simple life to those around you. Have to try this recipe, I know they are excellent cooks. Would have loved to win the cook book. Keep sharing with your readers the wonderful stories of the Amish. God bless.

  50. Love your books and this recipe sounds delicious will have to try it! THANK YOU FOR THE AWESOME GIVEAWAY SO HOPE TO WIN YOUR NEW BOOK!

  51. Wanda Maynard says:

    Hi Wanda,
    One of my favorite recipes I love to make is, Hamburger Bake. It takes a lot of ingredients to make it, but, to me it is worth the effort. Everyone that has tried it, loves it. I am hoping to try the new recipes from the book THE SEEKERS. I loved it!

  60. Gina Brown says:

    Hi Wanda!

    I truly enjoy reading all of your books, and is also very nice how they have recipes at the end of each book. Cooking is one of my favorite things to do, and every recipe of yours that I have fixed has been delicious! Thank you for all the joy that you bring to my life through your books.😊

  61. I make Stuffed Green Peppers rather than the related soup.

    Amish restaurants have excellent food!

  62. Paula Sizemore says:

Also at times I put bag of frozen vegetables of choice into soup, then all in one casserole, great with potatoes rolls. For my family it’s a hearty meal.

  63. Donalene Poduska says:

    I have always loved reading recipes and stories about them. Then I would try some of them. For the last couple of years I haven’t been able to try out recipes using some of my favorites ingredients such as various nuts, coconut, graham crackers, oats — just to name a few — because of intestinal problems. I still read and just imagine! Wanda, thanks for reminding me of the verses from Romans about love. They are beautiful!

  64. Donna Freebourn says:

    My sister in Pennsylvania makes stuffed pepper soup. Sometime she makes it from the dry peppers she has dried herself, when papers are out of season. Look forward to reading more of your books. Keep on writing.

  65. Susan DuBois says:

    I love to cook some of the things that I grew up eating. Many times when my children were young I would tell them stories around some of the foods that I fixed. One such was that when my brother was in Kindergarten, they were given chicks to raise. His grew into a cantankerous rooster. My mom threatened to put it down and she eventually did. We swore we would never eat anything she made with that chicken. One day she fixed chicken and dumplings and they were the best she had ever fixed. You guessed it, it was that rooster. I would share them and the kids still repeat them to my grandchildren. Fond memories of me fixing them and sometimes the little slip ups that were made or my trying to fix the food in the crockpot instead of the oven. Memories made around the Lord’s bountiful harvest.

  66. Gail Hollingsworth says:

    I received a manicotti recipe years ago from a friend. My daughter loved it so much that she expects it every year on her birthday.
    It was placed in our church cookbook and I named it “Rachel’s Birthday Manicotti”.

  67. We grew up eating many awesome kinds of food , mostly Penn Dutch as that was my moms heritage.
    This one you shared sounds so good and I will have to give it a try here at home !
    I use my stock pot on the stove more so then anything else, we do roast in the oven though.
    One day I hope to again have a wood cookstove as we did in TN.
    Thank you Wanda for the food ideas and for wonderful books and times to share with
    our friends and families !
    Blessings
    Linda Marie Finn

  68. Linda Eden says:

  69. Ellen Wycuff says:

    I love this recipe but call it unstuffed cabbage casserole. I always pick the green peppersout though because I know this won’t make much sense, I like the taste of green peppers put in things but do not like green peppers. I just want to be different. Cant wait to read the Seekers!

  70. Arlene Cole says:

    Recipe sounds delicious. Cant wait to try it!

  71. Paula Jeffers says:

    I made the Green Pepper Soup and everyone love it.

  72. Elaine Rady says:

    The Amish restaurants have the best roast beef ever!! Seems they all have the same recipe because no matter what restaurant you visit, it always tastes the same – most delicious I ever ate! Gravy too.

  73. The recipe sounds delicious, thank-you, I will definitely try it!!

  74. Mary Preston says:

    Thank you for the recipe.

    I’m the queen of one pot wonders. A family favourite is my Beef Curry.
    – Blade steak, cube it to whatever size suits (I remove ALL visible fat)
    – Curry powder & salt to taste
    – whatever veg you want to get rid of (they all end up tasting like curry)
    – Splash of whatever stock you have (ends up tasting of curry anyway)
    – If you want to give it a fancy name like Sun Island Curry just add sultanas, apple and some coconut.
    Cook up some rice to go with. If I can’t be bothered I cube some potato & throw it in the pot.
    Tastes even better the next day(try it with scrambled eggs), so I make extra – two meals done.

  75. Peggy Penningtoon says:

    Went to Amish Country twice and loved it. We stopped at a restaurant and the man that took us ordered first. I was really hungry and I noticed this man 0nly ordered 1/2 beef roast dinner. I had to order a whole order. It was roast beef mashed potatoes and brown gravy and homemade thick slice bread. Oh it was so good and I will never forget it. I will know to order a 1/2 order the next time. I also like your books and have most of them. I have cancer that has went to my bones and it has stopped my buying books but I got the library to order them!! I have been home bound for the last year so I would love to get the free book.

  76. I love all Amish recipes. One of my favorite recipes are stickles which is a pickle that are canned by Rebecca Gingerich in Etheridge,Tn. My favorite recipe is lemon lush which I make when our family is together. Donna

  77. linda Lee says:

    Stuffed green pepper soup sounds interesting. Will have to try. Can’t wait to read your newest book.

  78. Linda Knott says:

    Recipe sounds good. I love Amish culture. Your books are the best!!

  79. I will have to make your recipe thanks for sharing . I dont have a recipe to share since I am not the cook in my home my husband is and he makes everything from scratch never really goes by recipes .

  80. Darlene Holley says:

    I love stuffed peppers, but have never had or heard of stuffed green pepper soup. It sounds delicious and I am going to have to give this recipe a try. Thank you for sharing this with us!!

    My favorite and easy-to-make recipe is Busy Day Soup. I use frozen soup vegetables, beef broth, ground beef and spices, let it simmer and it tastes like you have worked really hard putting it all together! Served with cornbread or a crusty bread, it is yummy!

  82. I like to make a lasagna recipe i received from a friend. It entails a lot of work but it is delicious and worth the effort. Thanks for the giveaway.

    I have tried a couple of recipes from your Amish Harvest Cookbook. They were very good. I guess my signature recipe is for fruit pizza.

    1roll sugar cookie dough. Spread on pizza pan and bake at 350 for 15 min. Let cool. Mix 8oz cream cheese and 1 cup powdered sugar. Spread on top of cookie. Then spread 1 package of strawberry glaze on top. Top with fruit of any kind.

    I used to love Bruschetta chicken bake, but because of some medical issues that popped up last year, I’m no longer able to eat it. Since I won the Amish Friends Harvest Cookbook last month, I decided to try one of the recipes a couple nights ago (Cornbread Salad). The only thing I changed was using kidney beans instead of pinto. It was delicious! My husband and son loved it so much, they had 2 bowls each! I was surprised how well it turned out (I’m a horrible cook!). We’re going to make Ida’s Good Stew tonight. I can’t wait to see how it turns out!

  93. Beverly Burnett says:

    I am certainly going to try this recipe, I love stuffed peppers and the soup sounds great. I look forward to receiving your newsletters every month and have a lot of your books. I was able to attend a book signing you had here in GA and also met your husband. Keep writing those good books.

    I love all your books and have most of them. I don’t pass them on because I go back and read them again and again.
