Delightful Jun 11, 2008
This cookbook has wonderful recipes from the Amish but it is much more. It reads like a diary of Elizabeth Coblentz's life as an Amish wife, mother, and grandmother. Very interesting details like how she used to make 9 loaves of bread every week and would have them coming out of the oven when her 8 children came home from school. She takes the reader along on a wonderful read of the Amish life; quilting, canning, church, gardening, and much more.
The Best Home Cooking Ever! Apr 26, 2008
These recipes are great in this book, and the best thing about these recipes is that you do not have to go to a specialty store to find the ingredients. Everything in this book you will probably already have in your pantry, and everything in this book is wonderfully flavored. The recipes are for a large group of people, so if you make a recipe make sure to have a lot of people ready to eat. There are some really interesting stories about the cook and her family in the book too. Well worth the money!
Getting to understand the Amish Jan 28, 2008
I checked out this book from the library and after reading most of it, I decided I had to have my very own copy so I purchased one on this site the very next day. It is a wonderful explanation of how the Amish got their name, how they arrived in PA and there are many delicious recipes, too many to copy. I can't wait to try them as I love to cook from scratch. I purchase Amish food often and was pleased to find these recipes. The recipes consist of everyday ingredients most have on hand. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes to eat well. The little stories are wonderful too.
