20TH ANNUAL FESTIVAL OF TREES

Meg Makes: End your feast with coconut, cream

My love for Thanksgiving correlates closely with my love for pie.

I grew up eating all sorts of wonderful Thanksgiving pies and was proud to be the chief maker of coconut cream pie for last year's feast.

I loved the results of last year's pie because the coconut was pre-toasted, and it calls for only 1/3 cup sugar, which really allows all the other flavors to sing.

My Amish Home: Battling wind to get all chores done

"I have set the Lord always before me. Because he is at my right hand, I shall not be moved. Therefore, my heart is glad, and my glory rejoiceth; my flesh also shall rest in hope. For thou wilt not leave my soul in hell; neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption.

Meg Makes: It's cinnamon's time to shine in bars

I love the taste of cinnamon in baked goods, and these light bars my mom made this fall are no exception. Her Master Gardener friend, Donna Siders of rural Melvin, sent her the original recipe, and my mom tweaked it to use corn syrup instead of honey. You could re-substitute the honey, though my mom had great results.

Peanut Cinnamon Bars

My Amish Home: Getting work done while sun is out

"The Lord knoweth the days of the upright, and their inheritance shall be forever. They shall not be ashamed in evil time, and in days of famine, they shall be satisfied. But the wicked shall perish, and the enemies of the Lord shall be as fat of lambs. They shall consume; into smoke shall they consume away." Psalm 37:18-20
