It tastes similar to a crepe but with crispy edges! Add berries for a touch of sweet!

Treat yourself to some delightful German Pancakes for breakfast, lunch, or brunch. Sometimes called Dutch baby pancakes, these cakes are light and delicate with crispy edges. Who knew that with five every day ingredients and minimal effort you could have delicious, golden pancakes? We did! Enjoy!

Beware if you order from the general store and need to return anything for credit. You may never get a refund. Will never do business with them again
Ordered 1 cookbook, received 3 on Oct. 3rd, bill...ed for 3. Returned 2 for credit on Oct. 10th. Did not receive any acknowledgement of my return, nor did I see a refund, so contacted the company on Oct. 30th, was told a credit would be issued back to my American Express card. Did not receive credit, so contacted the company again on Nov. 17th, was then told a check had been issued for $39.90 on Nov. 14th, should receive it within 7-20 business days. Did not receive check, so contacted company again on Nov. 25th, was told due to the holiday I should wait a couple more days. Contacted them again today (11/28) and was told they can’t determine if the credit was a check or was issued to my credit card, so they will put a tracer on the refund and that will take a couple weeks. I find this all totally ridiculous that a business can not determine how they issue refunds. They acknowledge they have the returned items, so I feel they are being dishonest and seem to be “dragging their feet” about a refund. It’s not a lot of money, but they should be held accountable and refund my money immediately See More

Great source of info, but I don't know why it costs less for Brits than it does for Americans? I was going to buy the garden planner, but seems weird when I looked at the prices it was significantly c...heaper for Brits when I converted Pounds to Dollars. Considering this is an American company I would think we wouldn't pay more than foreign countries. Not going to be buying anything from OFA anymore. Even though the dollar has tanked over the last few months, the price for British buyers should have been higher even 6+ months ago. Kind of seems like they are taking advantage of American buyers.

You do not need access to my photos, my friends list, my media, and everything else you want to download...
all I wanted was the article about raising chickens and a garden...
This information about friends, my family, etc. Is none of your business and has nothing to do with this article about chickens and a garden...
You can unfriend me if you choose...I'm tired of this and will be unfriending more besides this..

My husband and I consulted the Farmer's Almanac website last year after we became engaged. We were looking for information on weather patterns to help us choose our wedding date to make sure we wouldn...'t encounter inclement weather. For our wedding we knew we wanted a fall wedding outdoors, and to have a ceremony and reception on site. After going back 10+ years we settled on October 7th, 2017. It wasn't until after we settled on a date that we noticed the date was 10/07/17. Aside from some wind later in the evening, the weather was just as perfect as the previous 10 years! See More

We have used the Almanac for many years. It is such a great guide for all kinds of things. The items I have purchased over the years have been well built and always have been great gifts and useful in... our home. Besides who in these times sends their publication and then bills you later. The Almanac is a breath of fresh air. Thank you Old Farmers Almanac! See More

I purchase a 2018 OFA for myself and one for my friend.

I was disappointed to read the classified section pages 261, 262, 263 and 264....

I read the disclaimer; Advertisements and statements contained herein are the sole responsibility of the persons or entities that post the advertisement, and The Old Farmer’s Almanac does not make any warranty as to the accuracy, completeness, truthfulness, or reliability of such advertisements. The Old Farmer’s Almanac has no liability whatsoever for any third-party claims arising in connection with such advertisements or any products or services mentioned therein.

All very legal. But giving some of these advertisers a platform for their questionable ads is a choice your magazine has made. It is all about the money. I just would think that after all these years and 226 issues you could have a better classified section. You have a strong foundation in history; you have been in American homes for generations. Your support system; staff, writers, and professional contributors are fantastic.

And yet you let these people down because even though you have a disclaimer, you give voice to these ads.

I will be returning my purchase.

My Grandma told me a long time ago that the almanac is what they went by to do just about everything in their lives. She said that back then they didn't have much so they really didn't have money to t...ry new ways of doing things. They had to do what they knew worked so they did everything "by the moon", the almanac. That's why I follow "The Old Farmers Almanac"�� See More

Wish they had more on Alaska but at least they have started adding us to the almanac now. Soon Alaska will be the agricultural center of the world anyway. When I lived in the lower 48 states their boo...k was both entertainment and useful information for farming. See More

I had purchased the Woodlands Deet free bug spray and absolutely loved it so I went online directly from their website and purchased 2 more. They arrived with both nozzles broken. I wrote them an emai...l on their website and wrote a message from here explaining the broken product and how disappointed we were for now, it's useless to us. No word from them. Definitely not a professional way to do business. I guess once they take your money, they're done with you! See More

So far looks like your "free, 30-60 days forecast" with 80% accuracy will be quite wrong. Since its not going to be snowing this week. LOL. Maybe has to do with all the weather modification the govern...ment is doing right. You just base your weather forecasting on previous history. Unfortunately everything is changing. See More

Ever since I was a child i watched my family go to the framers Almanac to for everything. They would look to see what day to plant the garden such as potatoes, and above grow things to grow. When it time to can fruits and vegetables, such as relishes, jams, and jellies. Grandparents only believed in the almanac so I have followed their traits. Planting and rooting flowers and roses. I enjoy the Almanac myself and will carry on the tradition. See More

This flavorful salmon recipe is a winner. The marinade adds a lovely flavor without taking away from the salmon. Even my husband, who isn’t that fond of fish, likes this healthy salmon dish.
