Christmas is almost here and this is a sure favorite!  This is always a crowd favorite.  Our Amish friends in Indiana served this to us and I thought I had died and gone to heaven!

Salted Toffee Pretzel Bark
• 1 bag mini pretzels (at least 4 or 5 cups)
• 1 cup butter (not margarine)
• 1 cup brown sugar
• 12 oz. bag semi-sweet chocolate chips
• Sea salt (if desired)
1. Line 11 x 17 cake pan with parchment paper.
2. Cover the bottom with a layer of pretzels.
3. Combine butter and brown sugar in a saucepan over medium heat, and bring to a full boil. Stir continually.
4. Pour slowly over the pretzels.
5. Place in a 350° oven for 8 minutes, or until bubbly all over.
6. Remove from oven and sprinkle evenly with chocolate chips.
7. Let sit for a minute to melt the chocolate.
8. Then smooth chocolate surface with a spatula.
9. Sprinkle with sea salt if desired.
10. Cool to room temperature.
11. Place in freezer for 10-15 minutes to harden chocolate topping. Or lift out of pan onto a cutting board and cut with a pizza cutter to make bars.
12. Remove from the pan and break into bite sized portions.

This cake is very moist and delicious! Fresh blueberries picked this time of year make it especially wonderful!  Enjoy!! (more…)

Oh, this is sooo good!!  What a perfect side dish, especially this time of year when cucumbers are freshly picked!  It’s very easy to make but tastes delicious.

2 medium size cucumbers

1 medium onion      

2T vinegar    

sour cream     

1 t. of salt

dash of pepper

Peel and thinly slice the cucumber and onion.  Add the salt and let it stand for a few minutes. Pat the cucumbers with a paper towel to take out all moisture possible. Place cucumbers and onions in a serving dish, add the vinegar and combine well. Add enough sour cream to equal half the cucumber mixture.  Chill for a few hours or overnight.

One of the things I love most about living in Dutch Country is the scrumptious, mouth-watering Shoo-Fly Pie the Amish and Mennonites so frequently bake.  The pie melts in your mouth with just the right blend of molasses, ginger, cinnamon, cloves, and nutmeg.  If you want to treat your family to a delightful dessert, try this recipe.  They will love it!
