mmmmmm mmmmmm good, this book has some delicious Amish recipes for cooks to try. I have made several of these recipes and they were a big hit in our home: baked oatmeal, granola, poor man's steak, and more. I love the pictures of the dishes along with scenery from the many Amish settlements in the United States. Wanda also included Amish proverbs or sayings through out the book which is divided into sections. Details about the various Amish settlements, transportation, schools, weddings, church services, and more are interspersed through out the enticing recipes. Recipes for laundry soap, spot remover, playdough and other non-food items are nice additions to the cookbook to help save money and the environment. I have been making the homemade dry laundry detergent learned from Amish for a year now and love it! I want to try some of the recipes here for other cleaning products. This book is sure to become a favorite cookbook of mine. I think I am going to copy some of my favorites onto recipe cards for my youngest daughter who just married in September of 2013. This cookbook would make a wonderful gift for friends or family.

Yammm!!! I always thought their simple life extended to simple meals.. But to have so many yammy recipes..wow.. I tried most of them and they are truly tasty. You should definitely try and be amazed how creative you can be with a simple eggs and sausage for breakfast.. Or just a pie for desert.. Even thou I didn't try to make all the gems and preserves yet, it reminded me of my childhood and out life on a little farm in Moldova.. Summers were a fun frenzy of gathering fruits and veggies and putting them in jars for winter.. Awesome book of all kinds of recipes made from scratch and with an interesting pick into Amish history and living.. Get it, read it, taste it and Enjoy dear readers!!
