    An Amish Kitchen is a collection of novellas following the stories of a group of characters who live in Paradise, Pennsylvania. In each story the kitchen plays a huge part, which is the center of the Amish home. From mixing herbal remedies to running a bed and breakfast to working in close quarters with family the characters featured in An Amish Kitchen find the kitchen to be places of love, hope and family.

    As with most other story collections, the stories of these characters are intertwined and all the main characters make appearances in each story.  I really enjoy reading collections like these because I really like being able to follow characters after their main story is told. This group of stories is well written and flows together really well even though there are 3 different authors. My only complaint is that these stories, like most in these types of collections, each seem to be a rushed story.  I’d love to be able to go a little more in depth into each story, but then the book would probably be 1,000 pages long…of course then it would take me 3 times as long to read. Overall I really enjoyed reading this book.

    Oh yeah, I forgot to mention something super important. At the end of the book, there is a collection of 45 Old Order Amish recipes many of which make an appearance in the stories.  Some of the recipes included are soft pretzels, pumpkin whoopee pies, cream celery and quilter’s salad.  I can’t wait to try my hand at some of these recipes.

    This makes a nice addition to my bookshelf. Not my favorite type

    This makes a nice addition to my bookshelf. Not my favorite type of book, but it was sweet enough. The book features 3 stories (each written by a different author). Here are some quick thoughts on each story.

    "A Taste of Faith" by Kelly Long
    The story of Fern Zook, a young woman who lives with her grandmother, who teaches her about medicinal, herbal remedies. It is a charming enough story of the romance that buds between Fern and one of the young men in her Amish community.

    "A Spoonful of Love" by Amy Clipston
    My favorite selection of the 3 in this book. It's about Hannah King, a woman who is not searching for love, but finds it anyway, right on the doorstep of her bed-and-breakfast inn.

    "A Recipe for Hope" by Beth Wiseman
    A story of forgiveness, between a middle-aged woman and her mother, learning to love each other again. And that is in the midst of raising three teenage boys, all in 'rumschpringe' at once.

    Overall, these were sweet stories for adult readers to enjoy. I love how the characters were tied together between the 3 stories (the women featured in each story know each other because they all live in the same community). For anyone who really enjoys Amish fiction, this book would probably be a treat.
