Reviewed by Anne Boiling for Readers' Favorite

When I saw the title of this cookbook, I knew it was going to be wonderful. The Amish are known for their simplicity, home cooking, love of family, and dedication to God. This book did not disappoint me. It more than met my expectations. For most people, home cooking has become a way of the past. I love to cook but must admit that I`ve also fallen prey to the ease of prepared foods.

Reading the recipes in this book made my mouth water. Most of the recipes were easy to prepare; they run the gamete from soup, breakfast cereals, main dishes, desserts and more.

The names of many made me curious. How did they get their names: Hasenpfeffer Stew, Knepp Soup, Stonaflesch, Shipwreck Stew, and Potato Rivvel Soup? I can hardly wait to try out the recipes.

This book meets my criteria for a good cookbook. It has a spiral binding, making it easy to leave the book open to a particular recipe without fear of it closing. The cover is easily wiped clean and there is an excellent index, a substitute and measurement page and a resource page.

Along the sides of each page are notes. Some of the notes are recipe hints, information concerning the Amish, prayers, and space for the reader’s notes. The soup recipes look delicious. The recipe for Church Cinnamon Rolls will be one of the first I try along with Chocolate Sauerkraut Cake. This cookbook will make a nice gift!
