    I live in the heart of Indiana Amish country and I know that if I want delicious, home cooked food the best place to find it is in an Amish kitchen. However, loving their food and knowing how to prepare authentic Amish recipes are two very different things. That is why I was thrilled to find the Amish Cooking Class Cookbook by Wanda E. Brunstetter. Not only are there recipes for scrumptious dishes, there are easy to follow directions as well.

However, loving their food and knowing how to prepare authentic Amish recipes are two very different things. That is why I was thrilled to find the Amish Cooking Class Cookbook by Wanda E. Brunstetter. Not only are there recipes for scrumptious dishes, there are easy to follow directions as well. The Amish Cooking Class Cookbook is based on actual cooking classes conducted by Brunstetter. In the opening pages you are introduced to class participants and throughout the book you read about their favorite dishes and their experiences in the kitchen. In addition, Brunstetter includes helpful information regarding every day cooking such as the proper or easiest way to boil eggs and potatoes. While that sounds simple, just think of how many rubberized eggs you've eaten in your lifetime! She also describes the Amish kitchen, lifestyle, chores and more - all of which added to the interest of the book and made it more enjoyable than a simple cookbook. There are over 200 recipes from snacks to breads - my favorite section - to casseroles and marvelous main dishes. I would have purchased this for the breads alone but, you know...we cannot live on new to cooking, single and need ideas or, like me, just love good food, you will relish the instruction, recipes and stories found in the Amish Cooking Class Cookbook. (So much gratitude to Netgalley, Barbour Publishing, Inc., and Shiloh Run Press for this mouth-watering book.)

Many of which I look forward to trying in my kitchen soon. Delicious sounding offering such as . . .

Sadly, since this was a preview of the book, I can’t share any of savory/main courses with you, because they weren’t in my preview. All in all, I did enjoy the AMISH COOKING CLASS COOKBOOK. If you’re a fan of Amish culture, and/or simple cooking, I think you’ll really enjoy it too.

    Amish Cooking Class Cookbook, by Wanda E. Brunstetter, is a spiral-bound cookbook that coincides with her fictional Amish Cooking Class series. Even if you haven’t read the fictional Amish stories (I haven’t—yet) this is still a charming and unique cookbook, with inspiring snippets and recipes. It is neatly organized, making it easy to navigate. The book is sturdy, but not stiff, and at 224 pages, is loaded with recipes, cooking tips and shortcuts. The index in the back has also proven helpful. A Amish Cooking Class Cookbook, by Wanda E. Brunstetter, is a spiral-bound cookbook that coincides with her fictional Amish Cooking Class series.

It is neatly organized, making it easy to navigate. The book is sturdy, but not stiff, and at 224 pages, is loaded with recipes, cooking tips and shortcuts. The index in the back has also proven helpful. Another plus: the pages are thick and lay flat—staying open to the page you want. I’m so happy there are lots of illustrations—which is a must for me. Cookbooks without photos are dull and intimidating. After all, don’t we eat with our eyes first? There are several unexpected surprises: • Glimpses into the fictional series. • Recipes for Children—tasty meals for ages 6 months+! • Canine Treats—Yay! Fido feels so included. • Household cleaners—dish liquid, wood polish, etc. • Home Health offerings—lip balm, lotion, etc. Recipe sections (along with numerous subsections): • Advice • Beverages • Breads and Rolls • Breakfast • Desserts • Spreads and Pickles • Main Dishes • Soups • Miscellaneous • Salads and Sides • Snacks, Dips, and Spices • Children’s Dishes Of the recipes I’ve tried so far, my favorites come from the dessert section. Candy? Yum. Bars and Cookies? Double Yum. Icing, Creams, and Sweet Sauces? Triple yum. Yes, It’s fairly difficult (nearly impossible) for me to resist the yummies! The divinity recipe (page 75) is almost identical to the one my grandmother always made at Christmas time when I was a child. Overall: This is a fun and unique cookbook. It feels like a family heirloom, with simple, love-inspired recipes for the family table.

    Avid Christian fiction readers will recognize Wanda E. Brunstetter as one of the premiere authors of Amish fiction. Her series AMISH COOKING CLASS features three books: THE SEEKERS, THE BLESSING, THE CELEBRATION, all revolving around Heidi Troyer's Amish cooking class business. In the novels, cooking lessons seem to bring both Amish and English together, often healing personal problems as well as nourishing the body. Now Brunstetter has put together a "Cooking Class" cookbook including recipes Avid Christian fiction readers will recognize Wanda E. Brunstetter as one of the premiere authors of Amish fiction. Her series AMISH COOKING CLASS features three books: THE SEEKERS, THE BLESSING, THE CELEBRATION, all revolving around Heidi Troyer's Amish cooking class business. In the novels, cooking lessons seem to bring both Amish and English together, often healing personal problems as well as nourishing the body. Now Brunstetter has put together a "Cooking Class" cookbook including recipes featured in the stories plus more recipes submitted by true-life Amish cooks. The 250 total recipes cover beverages, breads, breakfast, desserts, pickles, main dishes, soups, salads, sides, snacks and children's favorites. Each chapter of recipes begins with a scriptures and a short essay on Amish traditions and culture. Even though I've had Old Order Amish neighbors for thirty years, I found those articles enjoyable and informative. Coupled with the attractive color photographs, these articles turned a simple cookbook into a delightful evening's read. The recipes themselves are the basics of "good home cooking" with simple ingredients and directions. In the dessert section, I found a recipe for bread pudding and sauce that was small enough to make for my husband and me. In recent years, he has rekindled a real liking for bread pudding, something his mother used to make. For me, bread pudding was totally foreign. My mom, aunts, and I made yeast bread, cookies, cakes from scratch, candy, and fresh fruit pies, but we never, never made bread pudding. (In retrospect, this seems a bit odd since we raised chickens and always had eggs to use up. Maybe it was because my brother and I always ate all the homemade bread.) Since I had half a loaf of homemade yeast bread on the counter and fresh eggs in the fridge, I quickly whipped up the dessert and put it in the oven to bake along with our pork chop supper. Coming home on a snowy, cold evening, my husband was immediately drawn to the smell. Like so many of the Amish families that shared their recipes for this book, we sat down to a simple, but special dinner that evening, thankful for our many blessings. I had planned to take a picture of the golden pudding, but I got too excited to serve it to him while still warm and forgot. Sorry! This book would be a wonderful gift for someone who loves cookbooks (I collect them and read them like novels), someone who is a Wanda E. Brunstetter fan, or someone who is just becoming interested in the Amish culture. I received a copy of this cookbook from Barbour Publishing. I was not required to write a review and all opinions are mine.

    I was excited to review this cookbook because I cook a lot. I think the Amish are fascinating, although I’m under no illusions that their cooking is all “clean” or pure. Our newspaper used to run a column written by an Amish woman, and she always shared a recipe each week. These recipes were full of cans of cream soup, Velveeta, etc. The Amish used processed things just like the rest of us.

I don’t really mind: I understand that when you cook a lot, it’s not practical to make everything from scratch. This cookbook is based on Wanda Brunstetter’s Amish Cooking Class book series. There are three books in the series (I’ve read one), and each centers around Heidi Troyer holding a cooking class for people in her community. The recipes in this book come from the fictional Heidi and her classes. There are also several recipes included from women in various Amish communities. The cookbook is spiral-bound; a real plus in a cookbook, in my opinion. It lays open easily. I tried the recipe for German Pizza. I wouldn’t really call it a pizza -- it was more like a breakfast casserole. It was very tasty! I tried another recipes as well; this one for chicken roll-ups. Instead of using a can of crescent rolls, as specified, I made my own so they would be healthier. So, overall I like this cookbook a lot. There are a few minor quibbles: the photos are not labeled, and sometimes it’s hard to know exactly which recipe is being pictured. And I found it odd that most recipes are attributed to fictional characters, sometimes going as far as adding snippets like: “Lisa recently served this eye-catching dish at a wedding and the guests went back from seconds!” Oh well, I guess the author just wants us to live in our imaginations for a while.

From learning how to boil eggs and knead biscuits to building a German Pizza and an Amish Haystack feast, The Amish Cooking Class Cookbook includes something beneficial for every age and skill set. Divided into traditional cookbook categories, there is a recipe everyone will find to love. My Review: I absolutely love the Amish. Amish cookbooks are the best. I own several and I really enjoy them. Their way of cooking is very reminiscent of potluck type meals that my family would bring to what we call in the South "dinner on the ground". Every once in awhile at the baptist church that my grandmothers family attended they would have these cement tables filled with tons of delicious home cooked meals. As a child I absolutely loved the vast array of goodies that would abound there. Even now as a forty something wife and mother those were some of the best memories. Many of the family members that attended are no longer with us, so its definitely memories that I cherish. The Amish Cooking Class Cookbook follows a series of books by Wanda E. Brunstetter, that are the Amish Cooking Class. Great reads about a couple that start some Amish cooking classes. The recipes follow along with that series of books. In the cookbook there are 11 different recipe categories. The author has even included some pretty neat ones such as recipes for children and recipes for spreads and pickles. These aren't your average every day recipes. These are very similar to some old fashioned ones that my mother or grandmother would of made. Fantastic cookbook and I love all the extras! **Disclosure** This book was sent to me free of charge for my honest review from the publisher. All opinions are my own.

    What can I say but yum, yum, and yum? I am always on the prowl for simple, quick ways that will feed my family, preferably healthy recipes that I can actually understand. As I went through this book I was quite pleased that most of the recipes were short and with ingredients I knew and often use anyway.

But I am going to give you just a few examples to whet your appetite. They are the Spiced Apple Muffins, Coconut Pecan Cake, Shortcake Delight, Mock Steak Patties, and Cheesy Chicken Chowder.

There is a section called Advice From Fellow Cooks that had quick and easy ideas to apply for any cook in the kitchen. The book has 222 pages so it contains a lot of information. One great feature is the two indexes at the back. One index is of recipes by sections. The other is most helpful because it is an index by key ingredients.

Filled with cooking tips and advice to assist any cook from Novice to expert. We are reminded as we travel through the book that cooking is a labor of love, but should also be enjoyed. Most Amish cooks raise much of the cooking ingredients from vegetable to live stock. So when they say they made it from scratch they are not exaggerating. Tips include everything from How to easily peel potatoes to Making Cookie Bowls for that Ice Cream Sundae Dessert. Those Lactose intolerant among us who find the dairy alternative in the store to expensive will be pleased to know there is a recipe to make it at home for just a fraction of the cost that is easy and taste great. With the Holidays upon us Egg Nog is a must for family and guest that drop by to share the holiday cheer, but again it is an expensive purchase at the store. Why not make your own using this recipe at a huge saving and leftovers can be stored in the fridge. Then there is my favorite drink from my youth, the glorious Orange Julius. There is a recipe that taste like I remembered from my teen years. Just thinking of it makes my mouth water. Mrs. Brumstetter has even included a recipe for Root Beer that my sister swears taste just like the old A & W she loves. If you don't like kneading bread you are covered with a No Knead Wheat bread recipe. There are starter recipes including one for Friendship bread and one for Sour Dough bread as well. Recipes for Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner, Sides, Snacks and Desserts can be found within these pages. There is a quick view into the lives of these Amish cooks who have kindly shared some of their favorite recipes with us in easy to read and follow format. These cooks may lead simple lives according to many standards, but no one can deny they lead rich fulfilling lives steeped in tradition and family. We should all be so blessed. I gave "Amish Cooking Class Cookbook" a 5 out of a total of 5 stars. Amazon Link: https://www.amazon.com/dp/1683224663/... B&N Link: https://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/the-...

    The author did a series of fiction books called the Amish Cooking Class Series. This cookbook is based on those books, but one does not need to read the books to use or appreciate the cookbook. The cookbook starts out with a list of the cast of characters from the books, and a description of each book. That is followed by a description of Amish cooking, and then several tips from different cooks. There are several categories of recipes in the book, and I won't list all of them.

That is followed by a description of Amish cooking, and then several tips from different cooks. There are several categories of recipes in the book, and I won't list all of them. A few are beverages, soups, and desserts. There is even a category for children, including foods for babies. At the back of the book is an index for all foods. The front of the book has an index of the categories in the book. The book is spiral bound, making it easy to keep the pages open you are using. The cookbook has a lot of great recipes that have easy to follow directions. There are a lot of pictures, and I was impressed with the wide variety of recipes throughout the book. I am a single guy with only one cookbook to my name, so I was happy to get the chance to review it.... and I have used it a couple of times already to make recipes are part of my reviewing the book.......but it is a great cookbook I plan on using after posting this review. To be honest, I don't have a lot of experience with cookbooks, but this one does seem like a great one to have around, and may have some different recipes than the ones out there already. I do recommend it.

    This book was not what I expected, but in a good way. I really liked that it gave you a sense of the history of the Amish and their way of life and how cooking is a big part of that. I really enjoyed that it included the basics, which I don't feel is being taught a lot nowadays to the future generations. This book is a really good learning tool that will come in handy with teaching our children. The illustrations are beautiful and the descriptions and tidbits that come with the recipes are encha This book was not what I expected, but in a good way.

I won a copy from a Goodreads giveaway but all opinions are my own.

The Amish Cooking Class Series (trilogy). I decided to test run some recipes from the book before sharing with you. I tried four recipes on my family this past week and they loved every single one of them. I made Heidi’s Sweet and Sour Meat Loaf (pg. 120) It is super easy to make and has amazing flavor. My meat eating bunch ate it right up. I also tried Baked Stuffed Tomatoes (pg. 113), Squash Croquettes… (pg. 173), and two loaves of Banana Bread (pg 39). I am telling you, this book is beautiful! I also love that it lays flat with the spiral binding. This is such a great cookbook for the homesteader in you! I give it a 5 out of 5 stars and will continue to try new recipes from this book for a long time to come. I received a complimentary copy of this book from Barbour Publishing and was under no obligation to post a review.

    Absolutely love this cookbook. And what a neat idea. This is the cookbook for every day people like me. As a working mother I don't have time for complex recipes. This book has over 200 recipes in 10 categories including: beverages, bread, breakfast, dessert, main doses, spread and pickles, soup, salads and sides, snacks and dips and even recipes for children. Recipes are easy to follow with ingredients clearly listed. So all of this makes it an excellent cookbook. What takes this cookbook to the Absolutely love this cookbook. And what a neat idea.

First of all, I love how it includes a verse at the beginning of each chapter much like Heidi put verses on the back of her recipes. Secondly, the cookbook includes basic tips for cooking which are those little secrets that take an average cook to a great cook and makes the cooks job more efficient. Included in this section are tips for making potatoes easier to peel, how to have egg shells practically fall off, how to get your cookies fluffy and so much more. Also this cookbook has articles on understanding the Amish as well as descriptions of the characters from the 3 books. So you get a rare find in this cookbook, tips from experienced cooks and a multitude of easy to follow recipes. As I browsed this cookbook I felt like I had walked into one of Heidi's cooking class.

    Wanda Brunstetter's Amish Cooking Class Cookbook is inspired by her Amish Cooking Class three book series. Let me just say it is.....amazing! This is a cookbook to be read and used. Recipes compiled are from the three novels and various Amish women. Readers will find a section on advice or tips from Amish cooks. The many recipes are divided and subdivided into normal cookbook categories. Look for the Recipes for Kids section. It is a nice one the kiddos will enjoy.

Descriptions of the cast of characters from the cooking classes and pictures of the book covers are featured in the book. Scripture is sprinkled throughout which is a treasure. The pictures are vivid and beautiful. It is spiral bound so it will open up flat on your counter making it much easier to read when mixing and stirring. This is a cookbook for cooks, those just learning to cook, and those that like to read cookbooks. It will make a delightful gift for so many people. Don't forget to get one for yourself. Another 5 star book that I highly recommend to you

    Wow, what a beautiful cookbook this is! Bestselling author, Wanda Brunstetter, has compiled the recipes she used in her Amish Cooking Class series of three books about a young Amish woman who held cooking classes. She also included recipes from other Amish cooks and the book has 250 recipes. The book itself is spiral bound and full of full-color pictures of foods and everyday life of the Amish. Just lovely to skim through (and drool over!). The book begins with an overview of each of the three b Wow, what a beautiful cookbook this is!

She also included recipes from other Amish cooks and the book has 250 recipes. The book itself is spiral bound and full of full-color pictures of foods and everyday life of the Amish. Just lovely to skim through (and drool over!). The book begins with an overview of each of the three books in the series, The Seekers, The Blessing, and The Celebration, and the characters in each. Another section gives very basic tips on cooking and food prep. Short articles, eleven of them, on Amish kitchens, mornings, sweets and canning are interspersed throughout the recipe sections. Recipe sections include the typical parts of a cookbook, breads, beverages, breakfast foods, desserts, main dishes and the like. Included at the back are three indexes, one that lists the contributors of the recipes, one that lists the recipes by section in the book and the third lists the recipes by key ingredients, which I like a lot. This is a great cookbook that I think I will be using on a regular basis. I thoroughly enjoyed reading the books in the series and am looking forward to reading through and using the cookbook. I received a complimentary copy of this book from Barbour Publishing and was under no obligation to post a review. The opinions are my own.
