    Great book. I love the format of this cookbook. It is spiral bound and has a lot of colorful pictures of the recipes. It is organized by seasons both by what is available by seasons and what tastes good by seasons. Other great features are scripture passages sprinkled throughout and cooking and household tips.

    Amish Friends 4 Seasons Cookbook is amazing! I love the variety of recipes, so many for each season that I wouldn’t be able to narrow them down, using ingredients people find in their homes and dishes so delicious you can have people over as guests, take them to potlucks, or sharing with family on an ordinary weekday. Love, love, love this cookbook! I received a complimentary copy of this book from Barbour Publishing and was under no obligation to post a review.

Additionally, Originally posted on my blog: Nonstop Reader. Wanda E. Brunstetter's Amish Friends 4 Seasons Cookbook is a well written and beautifully photographed seasonal cookbook by Wanda E. Brunstetter. Due out 1st May 2022 from Barbour Books, it's 224 pages and will be available in spiral bound paperback format. Over the last decade, with transportation and delivery costs on the rise, there's been a sensible trend toward sourcing local foods and other supplies and eating more seasonally. Additionally, locally sourced food is likely more nutritionally sound and with the possibility of varieties of fruit and vegetables which don't transport well but are delicious and outside the usual selection at the big-box stores. All of the cookbooks by the author conjure images of Amish country, farmer's markets, locally grown produce and healthy ingredients. This one is an ode to eating seasonally. Recipes are grouped by season: Spring, Summer, Autumn, and Winter, with a bonus chapter which includes year-round recipes. Recipes are credited with their contributors and whomever does the curating has done a good job selecting appealing ones. Recipe ingredients are basic and will be familiar and readily available to anyone. The book also includes kitchen tips and tricks for convenience and good results. Ingredients are given in a bullet list, with measurements in imperial (American) units - no metric measures. The recipes are written in a very chatty informal style which is cozy and appealing. Most of these are very much like the sort of recipes which are handed down in families across generations. I have a collection of my own family recipes which I treasure, still hand written on old index cards. The recipes, tips, and instructions are interspersed with relevant verses from the bible. It's an Amish themed cookbook, so expressions of faith and family are expected and in this case, didn't feel proselytizing at all. One thing I really liked is that there's a full index as well as an *ingredient* index. Readers can look up "maple syrup" and find all the recipes which contain it as an ingredient easily and quickly. Four and a half stars. This is a nice homestyle cookbook. Disclosure: I received an ARC at no cost from the author/publisher for review purposes.

    I love when a new Amish cookbook comes out because the recipes are always easy to follow and tasty when finished. ThIs new book was no aception, filled with wonderful recipes, baking tips, and even gardening tips I had a fun time deciding where I wanted to start. I decided to try three recipes and wasn't disappointed. The BLT Bites were very similar to a recipe I already make but I wanted to try them because several ingredients were different to what I add to my own. They were just as delicious I love when a new Amish cookbook comes out because the recipes are always easy to follow and tasty when finished.

They were just as delicious as mine and I can't wait to make them for other people. I'm a huge fan of potatoes and really enjoyed the Herbed New Potatoes, they were a great addition to my evening meal. The last recipe I tried was the Jalapeno Dip. I know quite a few people who like other recipes I've made that include Jalapenos and this recipe is sure to be a hit. I have no problem saying that this is awonderful cookbook filled with recipes for all the seasons and so much more.

I love this series of books (and not because they are spiral bound so I can easily maneuver with them in my postage-stamp-sized kitchen as I can fold it back on itself and balance it easier than a hardcover book!!) The recipes are well written and understandable by cooks of all levels and the photos make the food very appealing to myself and other lovers of every day REAL food out there that is not fussy or complicated to make..and the fact that they use the produce that comes out that season is wonderful. We all think of rhubarb and asparagus in season as they can come from the garden or the market and not be so overly out-of-season priced. (And given current food prices, that is a bonus....freeze that rhubarb!) I especially love the book because it uses mostly whole ingredients instead of pre-prepared and packaged foods. My husband says that I never have any food in the house, only ingredients --- that is why I cook so much. I also refuse to eat or cook with Frankenfoods such as "chick'n" and its 88 ingredients vs. 🐔chicken🐔 having one and cheese that does not come from an animal is udder nonsense!) I will HIGHLY RECOMMEND this book to my family, friends, patrons and lovers of food out there in my life!!!!

    If you grow your own food, are a canner/preserver, or enjoy purchasing local fresh produce, this book will harmonize with your way of life, whether you are Amish or not. I was pleased to find new-to-me ways to prepare asparagus, a vegetable I adore but have only known how to serve a few ways. Now I can't wait to buy some and try out Crispy Asparagus Sticks, Asparagus Cheese Strata, and Asparagus and Pea Casserole.

I was pleased to find new-to-me ways to prepare asparagus, a vegetable I adore but have only known how to serve a few ways. Now I can't wait to buy some and try out Crispy Asparagus Sticks, Asparagus Cheese Strata, and Asparagus and Pea Casserole. I've been considering planting an asparagus row, and having more ways to cook those tasty spears may be my impetus to do so. It's also comforting to recognize dishes I've enjoyed at family gatherings, especially those where I haven't gotten around to asking relatives for their recipes. You've *got* to try making BLT Bites for your next gathering! I promise you they'll be a hit. The cookbook is arranged in sections by seasons, since you're being encourage to eat fresh, in-season produce. There's also lots of helpful hints scattered around. I've been cooking from scratch for decades and I still learned a lot, especially about rhubarb. Again, these felt like the sort of advice relatives might have passed on to me if I'd been listening when I was younger, or asked them about while they were still able to teach me. The printed version comes with a lay-flat spiral binding. Very considerate and practical! I'll rate Amish Friends 4 Seasons Cookbook with *Five Aunties*, along with my thanks for stepping up to be a surrogate auntie for all who need one. Bonus "electrifying" info: I was surprised to see mention of electric kitchen appliances, as I thought the Amish didn't use electricity. This led me to do a little internet research. I found this interesting and enlightening NPR article: Amish Community Not Anti-Technology, Just More Thoughtful https://www.npr.org/sections/alltechc... My thanks to author Wanda E. Brunstetter, Barbour Publishing, and NetGalley for allowing me to read a digital advance review copy of this book. This review is my honest and unbiased opinion.

    If your family is like mine, I repeatedly hear what is for dinner? Always the same dishes can't you come up with something else. Well, now thanks to Amish Friends 4 Seasons Cookbook I found some new and delicious ideas which you might want to serve your family. Different seasons sometimes require a different selection of fruits and vegetables which will help you come up with more tasty dishes. Spring is when you will find more spinach, peas, new potatoes, green onions, lettuce, strawberries, and as If your family is like mine, I repeatedly hear what is for dinner?

Different seasons sometimes require a different selection of fruits and vegetables which will help you come up with more tasty dishes. Spring is when you will find more spinach, peas, new potatoes, green onions, lettuce, strawberries, and asparagus. I tried the "Springtime Swiss Cashew Salad" as shown on page 18 and it was enjoyable and as a side dish, the "Herbed New Potatoes" on page 22 worked well with some items like chicken or even fish. Summer is a favorite time of mine and I like to find light dishes as sometimes it gets awfully hot. Again with blackberries, blueberries, cherries, corn, cucumbers, peaches, pineapple, raspberries, and tomatoes you can use these for many types of dishes. For a delicious drink try the "watermelon refresher" shown on page 46 and also the "raspberry lemonade" sure to be a delicious way to cool off of have with your meal. A fun hit will be "Burger "N" Fries Haystack" on page 66. Autumn is when you will find carrots, apples, grasp, pears, pumpkins, sweet potatoes, and cranberries fresh and delicious. For a fun dessert try the "apple dapple cake" on page 120 think your family will enjoy this after their meal. Winter means using a lot of things that might be canned in addition to potatoes, citrus, and some nuts. A new twist on "ginger ale" can be found on page 146 and the "potato pancake pizza" is a new and welcome treat on page 159. Of course, there are many more choices but gave you some of my family treats for each season your family might enjoy some different ones so have fun with this new cookbook.

This cookbook is a collection of recipes along with some the author has added of her own. The cookbook is divided into four seasons. It also has gardening tips which I love. It really has anything and everything that would appeal to any type of homemaker. The cookbook includes over 200 recipes and they are mostly easy to a tiny bit difficult. The comb binding makes it easy to fold flat and is always my go-to for cookbooks. This cookbook would make a great gift!

    4.5 STARS It being close to summer, I decided to try making the recipe that most closely resembles my favorite summertime dessert, Peach Cobbler. The recipe in Amish Friends 4 Seasons Cookbook I chose to make is entitled Peach Cream Pie (pg. 78) and let me tell you it is sooooo good! I used fresh peaches, following the recipe exactly as written which for me is unusual. I admit I am a canned peach person but the pie was sweet and tasty and had a custard-like filling that made my mouth water!

I used fresh peaches, following the recipe exactly as written which for me is unusual. I admit I am a canned peach person but the pie was sweet and tasty and had a custard-like filling that made my mouth water! I served it to our family after dinner and I must be honest and say that only two out of five of us liked it but we also are the only two that also like custard. I’m sure that’s a texture thing. ;) I also made Baked Oatmeal (pg. 179), using the suggestion to add canned Blueberries to the bottom of the dish before putting in the oatmeal mixture. Oh. My. I will be making this again. Both recipes were easy to prepare and quite tasty. The cookbook has a spiral binding which makes it easy to fold back and not have to worry about it falling over or anything like that. Lots of pretty color photos of food dishes for all seasons of the year too! If you’re looking for simple recipes and some down home comfort food, look no further! I’m planning on trying more of these scrumptious looking recipes as the year goes on. I also think this would be a fairly easy cookbook for a beginner cook.

    Lovely I have to say that one of the things I liked about this book is the layout. It has lovely, vivid photographs that are very appealing to the eye. The fonts used and the layout of the sections are easy to read and follow. Another aspect that I liked were the quotes in each section. They tied into the section they were in and weren't just random. Also, there is a great variety of recipes, making it where one could find more than one recipe to try out, and you'll definitely want to do so. *I re Lovely I have to say that one of the things I liked about this book is the layout.

Another aspect that I liked were the quotes in each section. They tied into the section they were in and weren't just random. Also, there is a great variety of recipes, making it where one could find more than one recipe to try out, and you'll definitely want to do so. *I received an advanced copy of this book via NetGalley.

    I planted my first garden this season and I have been looking for a book that could give me some ideas about what to do with my harvest. This book is going to be my new best friend. Not only does it have some wonderful looking recipes for meals but it includes some canning recipes, instructions for homemade cleansers and has tips for a whole host of things. The chapters are broken down by the seasons and include the typical produce that is harvested at that time.

    An interesting layout for a cookbook I enjoyed the seasonal aspect and that it was separated by the seasons. I don't really see too much in terms of the Amish aspect but the photos and recipes are interesting and worth a try. They are simple and hearty worth a try with friends during the different season's. If you enjoy finding unique perspectives and interesting new ideas this cookbook is for you.

    Thanks to NetGalley and the editors for providing this early copy in exchange for an honest review. The book looks so beautiful, the pictures and colors, the layout and fonts are all very beautiful, however the Kindle version is impossible to read since it goes vertical when horizontal and vice versa, I'm sure its an easy fix but so far I was unable to read it. The hard copy most be just amazing I'm sure. That's the only reason Ill give it a 3 stars Thanks to NetGalley and the editors for providing this early copy in exchange for an honest review.

    I’ve always loved Wanda’s books, she is my go to author. This book of Amish seasonal recipes is beyond FABULOUS!! Not only does it give specific recipes for “in season” fruits and vegetables, but they are amazing recipes as well. Coming from SW Indiana we have many Amish communities, these recipes are like going home! This could have been a recipe book written by my mom. Please, please get this book. You will be as amazed and thrilled as I am!!!

    Absolutely adorable cookbook filled with recipes and helpful hints that are organized by what fruits and veggies are in season that time of year. This is almost entirely side dishes, appetizers, and deserts, with only a few main dishes. I love how there are several different ways to prepare each veggie right next to each other. It makes it very easy to pick up some asparagus, then decide how you want to make it. I did get this book free from goodreads.

    Lots of simple recipes for simple people. This is what brings me back to my grandmother’s kitchen when I was little. Sure, some of the recipes are quite simple, but that’s what life on a farm is all about after the hard work of running the farm. If you’re looking for some simple, down home recipes, this is the book for you!

    I enjoyed starting my morning with the book filled with devotions and scriptures. Very thought provoking and an awesome way to reflect on Gods word. It also is a good way to get your day headed in the right direction. I was given a complimentary copy of this book from NetGalley and the publisher for my honest opinion and review.
