{{Book Review}} Gather Around The Amish Table

Gather Around the Amish Table (MennoMedia, September 2015)

Straight from Amish kitchens to yours, this cookbook offers favorite family recipes and charming stories from Amish and Mennonite cooks.

Bake the pecan rolls that taste best after an ice-skating party, or try the hoagies that a community sold to help an Amish family with hospital bills. Discover the cocoa cupcakes with instructions to "stir by hand" that one young cook took literally, or whip up the whoopie pies that one Amish woman took to market in her horse and buggy.

These cherished recipes speak of comforting traditions, lively communities, and strong Christian faith. Gather your family around the table to sample the nourishing fare and trademark charm of the plain people. In the words of one cookbook contributor: "Bake someone happy!"

For those that know me, they know I LOVE to cook and that I'm a collector or cookbooks, & "Gather Around The Amish Table" is one that I just HAD to add to my collection! My husband and I celebrated our 7 year wedding anniversary on 15, Sept, so he and I chose what we wanted to try first and we both cooked it together(awww! lol)

We had the Macaroni Casserole, BBQ green beans, Onion Rings, & Yoder's 8-minute cheesecake. Everything was so simple to make and it was all so delish! 

I love that all of the recipes in this book are really simple to make and take stuff that I usually keep on hand in our home. I also love that there are kitchen tips & little stories along with the recipes.

I've already promised family members this cookbook for Christmas, I can't wait for them to get their copy and try some of the yummy stuff in here!
