Item description for Countryside Cooking And Chatting: Traditional Recipes And Wisdom from the Amish And Mennonites by Lucy Leid...
Overview Lucy Leid brings you the best of traditional recipes from Old Order Amish and Mennonite kitchens from across the United States and Canada - along with some charming folk wisdom. During 2003, readers of the Plain People's weekly newspaper, Die Botschaft, were invited to share favorite tried-and-true recipes for a new North American Old Order cookbook. In addition, Old Order cooks share a story to go with the recipe: something amusing or interesting that happened while preparing it (or serving it) or how they got the recipe. Some share why they like a recipe or tell about their family or farm where the recipe has its origin or use. Included here is a collection of close to 400 recipes along with stories and wisdom, which they call "interesting chit-chat." Recipes include Favorite Breakfast Casserole, Honey Oatmeal Bread, Little Spatzlein, Sausage Zucchini Bake, Grandmother's Spaghetti Soup, Bread and Butter Pickles, Yoder's Eight Minute Cheesecake, Black Midnight Cake, Chocolate Whoopie Pies, Pretzel and Chip Dip, and Kitchen Made Apple Butter. Wisdom includes "My Recipes for Losing Weight and Keeping It Off", "Recipe for a Blessed Life", "Grandma's Pies", "Friendship is a Shining Gift", and "Recipe for a Happy Marriage."
