Many of you have been requesting cooking videos, and while cooking is not my first love, I do enjoy preparing food for my family. I made a video with three different meals in which I have six recipes.
The first meal is Amish style cooking which I don't do much of, and the second and third dinners are more of what I prefer cooking for health reasons and ease of preparation.
