Review: Loved the bits of wisdom! That was what made it special. To hear about the little details of the Amish Life was fun. There were plenty of recipes and many of them were unique like making cottage cheese. These are the gems that make a cookbook worth having. I believe that it is similar to other Amish and Mennonite cookbooks. The reason that I try to buy them and use when I am looking for unique things. Truly glad that I got to read and have the recipes to go through. I love cookbooks because they are idea generators for meals and deserts.
I would like to thank Net Galley and Harvest House Publishing for allowing me to read and review this book in return for a free copy and I was never asked to write a favorable review by anyone.
