I am so glad that I wasn't at home or near someone else's kitchen while I had my face buried in this one! Everything sounded so good that I wouldn't have known quite where to start. Each page took me on a mental trip back to Lancaster County. Thank you Wanda, for the recipes, the memories, and the adventures to come.

I felt the best way to review a cookbook was to test the recipes.
I made the Apple Dapple Cake and Key Lime Pie.
Both recipes took very few ingredients and they were both easy to make. Very little time
was needed in the preparation.
We belong to a home church and each Sunday we have a potluck after the service.
We made these desserts for that potluck.
I was afraid the cake would not make it there. It is one of those foods that is easy to slice
an inch off a time and eat. And the family was doing a good job at eating it. Both
desserts were enjoyed.
This cookbook is filled with many more delicious sounding desserts.
There are also some beautiful color pictures of the country side and of the desserts.

The book is done beautifully. What I like about her cookbooks is the little antedotes and scriptures that are intersperced throughout the book. The pictures are beautiful and the recipes are easy to follow. I look forward to toher cookbooks from her in the future.

I enjoy looking at this book over and over. The recipes are wonderful, and the enticing pictures are great...and mouth watering! Love the beginning of the book with the short story about the Amish and Mennonite History.
As it says in the book "Wunderbaar Gut (Wonderful Good) Desserts from the Heart of Amish Country!"
There are collections of Cakes, Candy, Cookies & Bars, Ice Cream, Toppings & Frozen Desserts, Pies, Puddings & Cobblers, and Other Desserts.
There are so very many wonderful things you can make from this book which have all been submitted by the Plain Community.
I was provided with a copy of this book by the Publisher Barbour, and was not required to give a positive review.
