Simply Delicious Amish Cooking - A Cookbook Review
The recipes are from an Amish Mennonite Community in Florida. The book has beautiful pictures of the Amish that I absolutely loved and it also includes lots of colorful pictures of the recipes which is always helpful for me. I like to know what a finished recipe is supposed to look like and a delicious looking photo helps me to want to create a dish just like it!
Another thing I love about the recipe's in this cookbook is that they are down to earth home cooking recipes. I hate to flip through a cookbook, find a recipe, look at the ingredients and find that I don't have any of the ingredients because it is supplies that I would never buy. NOT the case with these recipes! They seem to be tailor made for me and my pantry!
The cookbook is also spiral bound which makes it perfect for laying flat on the counter while you are cooking/baking. Throughout the book you find short little stories of what life is like for this particular community which is a really nice touch and makes the book seem more personal.
This is definitely a cookbook that I will be referring to time and time again!
