Wanda Brunstetter is an award-winning romance novelist who has led millions of readers to lose their heart in the Amish life. She is the author of almost 50 books with more than 5 million copies sold. Many of her books have landed on the top bestseller lists, including the New York Times, Publisher’s Weekly, CBA, ECPA, and CBD. Wanda is considered one of the founders of the Amish fiction genre, and her work has been covered by national publications, including Time Magazine and USA Today.
Wanda’s fascination with the Amish culture developed when she met her husband, Richard, who grew up in a Mennonite church, and whose family has a Pennsylvania Dutch heritage. Meeting her new Mennonite sister-in-laws caused Wanda to yearn for the simpler life. In their travels, she and her husband have become close friends with many Amish people across America. Wanda’s desire to explore their culture increased when she discovered that her great-great grandparents were part of the Anabaptist faith.
All of Wanda’s novels are based on personal research intended to accurately portray the Amish way of life. Many of her books are well-read and trusted by the Amish, who credit her for giving readers a deeper understanding of the people and their customs.
Wanda’s primary attraction to the Amish is their desire to live a devout Christian life that strives to honor God, work hard, and maintain close family ties. Whenever she visits her Amish friends, Wanda finds herself drawn to their peaceful lifestyle, sincerity, and close family ties, which is in stark contrast to the chaos and busyness that plagues so many modern “Englishers.” Time and time again, Wanda loses her heart in the Amish life, and she hopes her readers will, too.

Reviews - What do customers think about Wanda E Brunstetters Amish Friends Cookbk V2?
Suzie Housley, Midwest Book Review Jan 3, 2010
A true sense of Amish pride radiates from the pages of Wanda E. Brunstetter's Amish Friends Cookbook Volume 2. In this one book you can almost feel the love transmit from the author to the reader as she reveals the simplistic beauty that captures the purity of the land and way of life through the many pictures included with each recipe.
Wanda E. Brunstetter's Amish Friends Cookbook Volume 2 consists of two hundred Amish County recipes. Each one is a tantalizing tribute to the Amish community. Some of my favorite recipes included:
Iced Cinnamon Biscuits Maple Twist Rolls Beef Volcanoes Million Dollar Fudge
In addition Ms. Brunstetter includes information about the Amish communities that are in the United States. I was amazed to learn that the Amish community has grown to a population of over two hundred nationwide. Some of the places in which the Amish reside include Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, Lawrence County, Tennessee, and Christian County, Kentucky.
As an added bonus to the many recipes this book contains there is a unique section that offers home product recipes that include: earache remedy, cough syrup, and air freshener. This section was a welcome addition since it shows how to make useful products with natural ingredients.
Wanda E. Brunstetter's Amish Friends Cookbook Volume 2 is an outstanding collection of the best recipes you will ever experience. You will find that this book becomes a permanent fixture in your recipe collection. It will be one book that you will proudly pass on to future generations.
Not just another cookbook! Dec 1, 2009
The thing I love most about this cookbook is that Wanda spends a lot of time with the Amish folks herself, so you can be certain that these recipes are time tested and authentic. If you are curious about the foods that the Amish eat, then this is the book for you because the recipes are easy. There are no "hard to find" spices or ingredients and the food is delicious!! I absolutely love the introductions before the recipes. I actually sat down and "read" this cookbook which is something you don't typically do with a cookbook. This alone makes it a great gift for any occasion, as to me, it is not just another cookbook!
Love the receipes and pictures~ Dec 1, 2009
I love the selection of recipes in Wanda's cookbook~! The lemon bars from Holmes County Ohio are wonderful! I have been to Holmes County and it is so great to see it in her book~ Also I used to live in Florida, so the Sarasota area is also wonderful to see in her book, and of course ALL of the receipes! Wanda gives such great insight into the Amish with this book, even though a cookbook! Any cook would love this one! I really recommend it to anyone interested in the Amish and their world. They are wonderful cooks and bakers! Hands off to Wanda for this one!
Amish Cooking Oct 16, 2009
I bought both one and two of Wanda Brunstetter's Amish Friends Cookbooks. They are both wonderful. I love all the recipes...they sound delicious and are clear and easy to use. I especially love the stories she writes at the beginning of each chapter about the different sects of the Amish. They are facinating and welcome to help understand the groups a little better.
I would recommend either book.
