My Thoughts:

Are you ready to gather around the table with some new recipes to try out? Best-selling author Jerry Eicher and his wife, Tina, have put together an amazing cookbook filled with yummy recipes. You can get a laugh or two while reading some of the Amish humor within this cookbook.

I admit that I am a cookbook junkie; I won’t admit to you how many I actually have!  In that collection I have a couple of Amish cookbooks and honestly not all the recipes in my Amish cookbooks are easy to fix or practical for my family.  This cookbook however is more modern in style for the on the go busy life style that we Englisch’s live.  The ingredients are practical and easy to find at my local grocery store.

This is a cook book full of recipes that I will be sure to use over and over again.  I have loved every recipe that I have prepared so far. I made the Chicken Pot Pie, Oven Fried Buttermilk Chicken, Honeybun Cake, and the Sweet Potatoes with Apples.

 This is the Honeybun Cake, yummy! I had a little problem with the batter being thick trying to put a layer of the batter and the dry mix in the middle. I ended up taking a fork and swirling it together.
I took it to a potluck. I had to taste it to make sure it was good! I had two pieces before it went out the door. I am sure nobody will mind! I had a few folks ask for the recipe.

The pages are thick and look like that can stand up to a couple of spills and wiping of a washrag if needed. The cookbook is spiral bound which makes it easy to stay open while you’re preparing your delicious recipe.

My only drawback to this cookbook is that it doesn’t have any pictures. In my opinion pictures are a must have in a cookbook. I want something to see that makes me drool over a recipe:0)!  Either way with or without pictures you can see that the recipes are easy to prepare and yummy.

 This book has been provided to me my by First WildCard free of charge and in no way was I asked to give a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
