About the book:
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!"

I was thrilled to be given the chance to review this cookbook and I was not disappointed in the least! This cookbook is filled with wonderful photographs, delicious sounding recipes and memories and thoughts associated with the recipes. This book has a wide variety of recipes of different types and each one welcomes you into a family kitchen of a Mennonite or Amish home. What I like about this cookbook is that there are recipes that I am familiar with, but then there are others that are unusual and different from anything I have made. I have tried two recipes so far, S'More Bars and Can't-Leave-Alone Bars and they were both delicious! The S'More Bars have oats on the bottom layer and then are topped with chocolate and browned marshmallows; gooey and delicious. The Can't-Leave-Alone Bars sweet and a mixture of textures and taste. Both of these bars were incredibly easy to make and my daughter enjoyed making these with me.
I am looking forward to making many, many more recipes in this book, including California Chowder, Stuffed Shells Casserole and Strawberry Pizza.
