wishes she was Amish (sometimes!)
Simply Delicious Amish Cooking ~ by Sherry Gore
It's no secret....I am a HUGE fan of all things Amish! My family on my mother's side is from Amish Country, Lancaster, PA, and I grew up loving the simplicity of the Amish lifestyle, and the FOOD!! Oh.....the food!!! There is nothing better than a shoofly pie, some birch beer, apple butter...oh! Drool!! Imagine my delight when this book showed up as a choice from booksneeze.com. Even better, it's written by Amish from my native state of Florida. Win-win!
This is a fabulous collection of Amish recipes from many Amish families, most of which reside in the Sarasota, Florida area. Delicious food, with a sprinkling of delightful stories and fascinating Amish history, I felt like I was peeking into my grandmother's prized recipe collection and her journal all rolled into one. There are so many recipes in this cookbook, from breads to casseroles, to seafood feasts and deserts. There is something for every taste and culinary desire. The first recipes I tried were the Pizza doughs, both white and whole wheat, and they were fantastic! I honestly want to try out each and every recipe in this book. Luckily for my family, I probably will! This is a great cookbook for anyone that loves delicious home cooked meals, and appreciates or wants to learn more about the simple lifestyle of the Amish community. Kumm Esse! (Come Eat!) I only wish I had been able to get the spiral bound version instead of the e-book. I love to have my cookbook open on my table in front of me!
