Amish Cook tests out new noodle recipe


It always gives me a sad feeling that our three oldest children are the only ones of our children who really remember much about their grandparents. They were such loving grandparents but our Heavenly Father knows best.

Last Friday turned out to be a very cold day but with many willing hands, 9,000 sub sandwiches were made by 12:30 p.m. This was to help a local Amish family with their hospital bills. I’m guessing 175 to 200 people gathered to help with this event. What a blessing to help each other in times of need.

Daughter Susan’s 18th birthday was that day so we celebrated that evening with sub sandwiches, Swiss roll bars (which she preferred over cake) and ice cream. It was an easy meal after being gone during the day to help make the subs.

While the children were home yesterday we baked chocolate chip cookies and made noodles. Susan cut her and Mose out two new outfits. The material was part of her gift from Mose. She is taking more of an interest in sewing and wants to sew the outfits with me coaching her. Last week I cut out and sewed three dresses for daughter Verena. She is in need of more dresses. I want to teach her how to sew her own dresses too but am short one sewing machine due to it needing adjustments. I keep hoping our good friend Terry will show up at our front door one day when he gets back in the area. He always does a good job of getting it back in working order. The last few times we made noodles I have used a different recipe and really liked it better than the one I usually used. I will share it with you and see if you will like it too.


3 cups egg yolks (usually 1 dozen yolks make a cup)

1 cup boiling water

3 tablespoons salt

3 tablespoons vegetable oil

3 pounds flour

Beat egg yolks really well then add water, salt, and oil. Keep beating while adding water, salt and oil. Pour egg mixture over the flour and mix together very well. Put in an airtight container for 10 minutes before rolling out and cutting or putting through noodle cutter.

  • Sometimes it's the parents, not the child, who need fixing I absolutely love it when people begin to realize that the problems they're having with a child are of their own making; when they begin to realize, in other words, that the child is not the problem.
