AND NOW...A FEW RECIPES FOR YOU TO TRY (CLICK ON PICTURES TO SEE THEM LARGER):
The Amish Family Cookbook is a valuable treasure trove of recipes, well-organized into sections with everything from Appetizers to Breakfast foods, Cakes, Cookies, Dessert, Main Dishes, and Breads. There is truly something for everyone in its pages. The recipes are easy to read and easy to follow as well. I quite enjoyed the layout of the book, where recipes have been accompanied by cute little sayings and the occasional and appropriate quote from one of the Eicher's books. What I most appreciate about the cookbook is the peek it offers into the Amish culture, with many a surprise along the way. For example, for some reason I expected the Amish to cook much more with strictly natural ingredients. Yet what a surprise to learn that one of the favourite things for the Amish to eat after church is "Amish Peanut Butter", a mixture of peanut butter, marshmallow creme, and maple syrup. Who knew the Amish like marshmallow creme? And I must say that this recipe must be an acquired taste! The only thing that would have made the cookbook even better would have been the inclusion of pictures of at least some of the delectable recipes contained within its pages.
I award this cookbook 4 out of 5 stars.
