Celebrating 20 Years

July 1996 - July 2016

This month is the 20th anniversary of It started with a desire to learn how to build a website at a time when there were very few web design software programs. I had to start from scratch, but I loved the challenge and the process. First, I had to choose a subject and I immediately decided to feature my family's Pennsylvania Dutch Recipes. To this day, is probably best known for that collection. However, shortly thereafter, I decided to post other recipes from my family and friends, as well as many of my own creation. It was not long before generous people like you were sending me their favorite recipes, which I post in the Shared Recipes section. Eventually, I branched out, adding menus, resource pages, seasonal features and much more, all of which can be found on the Site Map or monthly features on this home page. Because I love trying, creating and sharing new dishes, the list continues to grow. There are still many new recipes to post, resource pages to add, and revisions to make, so I hope to be around for a very long time. Thanks to all of you for your interest, contributions and continued support.

Recipes for Summer Vegetables

In this day and age, we can get most types of produce all year long from various sources, but local, seasonal products are usually tastier and less expensive. That seems especially true of summer vegetables. I have chosen the most popular summer vegetables that can be found anywhere, such as tomatoes, peppers, eggplant, squash, beans, corn and cucumbers. I listed some of my favorite recipes for utilizing the produce in delicious main and side dishes, as well as other presentations in which they are the main or key ingredient. Most of the recipes are quick, easy and healthy, so take a look and give some a try.
