MY REVIEW: With each section of this wonderful recipe book, there is a scripture passage and prayer. I appreciate the fact that the author includes some of her own tips for recipes, such as variations or substitutions one might use. There is a section for "Best-Ever Breakfasts", "Midday Meals & Snacks", and "Quick & Easy Dinners". The recipes featured are unique to the Amish homes. I personally tried the Baked Oatmeal (this is good but I think I still prefer oatmeal creamier), German Potato Salad (my favorite potato salad recipe ever!), Shoofly Pie (My All-Time Favorite Amish dish!), Layered Lettuce & Pea Salad (a great summer dish), and Poor Man's Steak (delicious and tender). I thought that it might have been a good idea to include a separate section for desserts as these recipes were simply included in the other three categories. I also would have loved to have seen some pictures or illustrations in the book.
I rate this recipe book 4 stars and highly recommend it to adventurous cooks.
I received a kindle version of this book from netgalley in exchange for my honest review.
