Amish proverbs: It takes seven to cook for to make a really happy wife.

and Amish humor:

The Englisha visitor suffered through a three-hour Amish wedding service, sitting on the hard backless church bench.
"Why does it take so long to tie the knot?" he asked afterward.
"Well," the bishop said, stroking his long white beard. "So that it takes 'em a lifetime to untie it."

Readers will laugh, pray, and eat robustly with The Amish Family Cookbook at their side.

    Chock Full of Yummy Recipes & More!

    Where do I begin? This is going to be one of my favorite cookbooks. How do I know? I’ve tried 3 recipes so far in order for me to do an honest review. All were hits. How do I know? My husband loved them! (And so did I). I am looking forward to trying more of these great recipes! The three recipes that I made so far are: Cheesy Potato Soup, Shipwreck, and Lemon Squares. The Cheesy Potato soup was so rich and creamy. This made two meals for us and my husband finished the last bowl of it for a late supper tonight. Shipwreck, oh my goodness!, was out of this world delicious. I seriously didn’t know if my husband would like it. I watched him take bite after bite and he said the more bites he ate the better it tasted to him! We finished up leftovers on that one yesterday. The leftovers were yummy also! I made the Lemon Squares this afternoon. We tried a small piece as soon as it came out of the oven…delicious. I just tried another piece since they are now cool. Still delicious! Besides the recipes, this cookbook is filled with Amish Proverbs written on the sides of the pages. Also, there are pages with some humorous jokes on them. I’ve had some good laughs! Author Jerry Eicher and his wife Tina have a hit on their hands. I will be recommending this cookbook to everyone. I wish to thank Harvest House Publishers and Jerry and Tina Eicher for giving me a copy of The Amish Family Cookbook to try out and review. Yum!
