This is my go-to cookbook for those times I think I am "poo
This is my go-to cookbook for those times I think I am "poo", or my kitchen appears to be lacking. I have worn out two, and was thrilled when it came out in hardcover. I bought this and "Extending the Table", which is another exceptional cookbook like this one, for my daughter's bridal shower--she specifically asked for them. And, a wonderful addition to "extending the Table" in the newest book: specialty diets such as vegetarian or gluten-free. You cannot go wrong on these books!Was this review helpful?

So far, so good
So far I have only made 2 recipes from this book, but they have both turned out very tasty. This cookbook is stripped down, no photos and sometimes up to 3 or 4 recipes to a page. It is not glossy, but it has loads of content.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
Written 25 years ago by a Mennonite woman, it does speak to the Mennonite values, but I do not think that it is overly preachy. The main focus is on creating healthy and wholesome, non-processed meals for you and your family.
So far, I have tagged over half of the recipes in the book as those that I would like to try in the near future. I especially like all of the recipe options for various types of beans and different twists to casseroles that I had not considered previously.
My one gripe is that they are constantly talking about the benefit of non-processed and whole foods, but most recipes call for margarine, not butter, which seems weird to me.
Overall, I am impressed thus far and recommend this cookbook.
