    Delightful Amish Cookbook!

    What a delightful gem of a cookbook. I love that there is an Amish cookbook out there that isn't requiring a lot of canned/processed foods in it to make the recipes. I was able to sample a number of recipes from the cookbook, but I know there is so much more in it that I was not able to preview. This book contains some fun breakfast ideas, beverages, snacks, salads, side dishes, main dishes, desserts, condiments, and home remedies! I loved reading the author's history of how she came to compile this collection of Amish recipes, including her story of growing up in an Amish family.

    Some recipes I tried were:

    Graham Cracker Granola - (this was my daughter's personal favorite). We actually subbed out tje butterscotch chips and replaced with chocolate and mini marshmallows for a s'mores variation. (that's my 11 yo for you - all about experimenting with the recipes!)

    Good Lemonade - We cut back a smidge on the sugar just because we like it more tart.

    Homemade Iced Tea - This was AMAZING!!!!!

    Zucchini Muffins - These were so tasty and were shared with a friend for her birthday. I can't get over how moist and delicious they were. Definitely a great recipe for summer.

    Broccoli and Cauliflower Salad - I used greek yogurt in place of sour cream and Italian dressing, but I imagine there could be a lot of different flavor combinations for this based on what flavor salad dressing is used.

    Chicken Bites - I have no words. Perfection and so easy to make! We drizzled ours with honey after.

    Johnny Cake - I made this to serve with ice cream for my daughter's 11th birthday as she doesn't care for traditional birthday cake. It came out really good!

    Ranch Pretzels - I've made these twice already. They are an official family favorite.

    Farmer's Dust - This is just a great all-purpose season salt. I seasoned some chicken legs with this mixture before grilling. My only complaint was that it is so humid in the northeast right now that its starting to clump up on me already. I added a few grains of rice to the shaker to help absorb some of the moisture.

    Cold 'n Flu tea - I am still missing a few ingredients to make this completely, but I'm trying to track them down as I suffer from chronic sinus ailments. I did mix up what I had already and the peppermint and lemon balm really stand out.

    I'm really looking forward to purchasing a full copy of this cookbook. It is chock full of so many recipes that I would like to try. The stand out sections include the breakfast granola ideas, the snacks, and the home remedy section.

    This cookbook is filled with delicious sounding recipies, all tried and true. There are some recipies that will feed a crowd, while others a small gathering. I plan to try many of them very soon. The tips included in the book are great, giving it a little different twist.

    I have always enjoyed Wanda E Brunstetter's books and this cook book is no exception. I love all the pictures and stories included. The recipes all seem scrumptious and easy to follow. All the tidbits of information like the garden tips and the health recipes like Pneumonia or Flu Foot Soak are wonderful. This is a great book for those who love cooking, baking, and Amish stories. This would be a wonderful addition to anyone's cookbook collection. I highly recommend it.

    I received a copy on Netgalley for my hones opinion and review.
