What is your favorite dish you’ve ever prepared? | Contributor Q&A

I’m not much of a cook, or a baker, for that matter. It’s not that I’m bad at it; I’m just lazy. But at the beginning of the year, I decided it was time to man up and learn how to make some new dishes. I bought “The Complete Cooking for Two Cookbook: 650 Recipes for Everything You’ll Ever Want to Make” by America’s Test Kitchen. My first recipe? Fudgy Brownies.

One-tank trip: Amish Country

In 1805, a group of Amish settlers in Pennsylvania began the move west to Ohio, resulting in one of the nation’s largest concentrations of their community. Today, Northeast Ohio is home to 60,000 Amish in roughly 52 communities. Amish life is a big draw for non-Amish tourists, who are curious and fascinated with their 19th century way of life.
