About the Book:

Just about everyone is fascinated by the Amish—their simple, family-centered lifestyle, colorful quilts, and hearty, homemade meals. Straight from the heart of Amish country, this celebration of hearth and home will delight readers with the pleasures of the family table as they take a peek at the Amish way of life—a life filled with the self-reliance and peace of mind that many of us long for.
Readers will appreciate the scores of tasty, easy-to-prepare recipes such as Scrapple, Graham “Nuts” Cereal, Potato Rivvel Soup, Amish Dressing, and Snitz Pie. At the same time they’ll learn a bit about the Amish, savor interesting tidbits from the “Amish Kitchen Wisdom” sections, find out just how much food it takes to feed the large number of folks attending preaching services, barn raisings, weddings, and work frolics, and much more.
The Homestyle Amish Kitchen Cookbook is filled with good, old-fashioned family meal ideas to help bring the simple life home!

My Review:
I love the Amish….everything about the Amish! Especially their cooking! They use the simplest of ingredients, things you have on hand already, and turn out the best tasting food around! 
This particular Amish cookbook is filled with delicious recipes from breakfast foods to main dishes to desserts. It is unique in that it includes substitution/measurement guides, as will as tidbits and prayers throughout the book! Along side each recipe page is a handy “note” section for if you alter the ingredients at all you can neatly make note of it. 
If you love to cook and bake and be in your kitchen, then I highly recommend this 5 star cookbook! It’s full of simple and delicious recipes and it’s hard to pick out just one favorite as they are simply wonderful gut!
