Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“With its brilliant photography and classic, traditional recipes, Wanda has created the perfect cookbook. The Best of Amish Friends Cookbook Collection makes a delightful gift and one that you will treasure in your own kitchen.”

– Sherry Gore, author of Simply Delicious Amish Cooking: Recipes and Stories from the Amish of Sarasota, Florida and editor-in-chief of Cooking & Such: Adventures in Plain Living magazine

There are some great recipes in this book. Most of them are pretty easy to make. I found the book to be better than I thought. I wasn't sure what I was going to get when I opened the book. Everything you need for a recipe you either already in your pantry or easy to get from your local store. A cook book worth having in your home.
blogspot.com - Pam Camel

Easy to follow directions. Many of the recipes needed items I already had on hand.
dadofdivas-reviews.blogspot.com - Christopher Lewis

This book has some amazing recipes within it, and I for one had my mouth watering throughout the entire book.On top of this, I loved that the book was spiral bound, as any cook knows this makes your life so much easier while you are cooking!
thegardenwindow.blogspot.com - Sian Williams

This is probably the ideal first Amish cookbook to buy. It is extremely useful having a comb-bound recipe book which will open and lie flat! It would make an ideal gift for anyone who loves Wanda's Amish books and it is great to see the two original cookbooks combined  into one volume. I am so looking forward to buying a  print copy to add to my cookbook collection!
loveshistorical.wordpress.com - Miranda Mason

I started baking and cooking recipes from this book a while ago. I LOVE IT! The directions are so easy to follow and the recipes are so delicious and tasty. I loved the pictures throughout this book as well. I believe that Ms. Brunstetter does a wonderful job of rounding up all the recipes. I would definitely recommend this to anyone. You cannot go wrong with an outstanding cookbook such as this!
thefriendlybookknock.com - Sally Riley

This is a beautifully illustrated cookbook that causes me to want to visit the land of the Amish! In the Breakfast section homemade granola and grape nuts are included as well as homemade pancake syrup - YUM! Along with recipes are Amish sayings, Scripture verses, beautiful illustrations and bits of info about the Amish. I will be trying some more recipes this summer, and even more when I retire from teaching in a couple of years.
blogspot.com - Michelle Marr

The Best of Amish Friends Cookbook by Wanda E. Brunstetter is full of things I might actually cook, with ingredients that I might actually have in my kitchen or be able to pick up on a quick run to the grocery store.

I found this cookbook enjoyable to look through and I found a number of recipes that I really would like to try. In addition to the recipes, I found many of the facts about the Amish and their lives interesting. I learned about their schooling and the different types of buggies certain Amish use. I enjoyed having these sections mixed in with the recipes.
NetGalley - Robin Grossbier

Wonderful....oh to be able to cook all of these recipes and not gain a pound.  Yet when I don't work an eigth of what Amish do...I know why.  Thanks for combining these two books...they will be a nice recommendation for the church bookstore for this fall and Christmas.
Wendi's Book Corner ~ Rainy Day Reads in Seattle - Wendi Barker

When I got a chance to read through The Best of Amish Friends Cookbook Collection by Wanda E. Brunstetter, I found some new favorite go-to recipes.  I call them go-to because they utilize a lot of the ingredients I already have on hand.
The Self-Taught Cook - TAMMY CUEVAS

This is one of the best Amish cookbooks I have seen lately.  The spiral binding makes it convenient to use, and the sections are clearly divided and labeled. If you only buy one Amish cookbook this year, buy this one; you'll be glad you did.
Splashes of Joy - Joy Hannabass

This is the most amazing cookbook I’ve ever seen! It is not only a cookbook, it is a book to display on your coffee table, or other places in your home for friends and family to be able to look at. Most of the recipes are pretty easy to make and those I tried are fabulous!! The book is spiral bound and the paper used looks like photo paper and is a very good quality. The pictures are awesome and top quality. There are photos of some of the recipes, and they look scrumptious and good enough to eat! There are also pictures taken around different places on Amish farms. And I really love the little tidbits all throughout the book about the Amish and their lifestyle.
 
Night Owl Reviews - Diane Coyle

This is a great cookbook to add to your library and with all the delicious recipes offered, I’m sure you’ll discover plenty of new favorites you and your family will love.

    This is the most amazing cookbook I’ve ever seen! It is not only a cookbook, it is a book to display on your coffee table, or other places in your home for friends and family to be able to look at. Most of the recipes are pretty easy to make and those I tried are fabulous!! The book is spiral bound and the paper used looks like photo paper and is a very good quality. The pictures are awesome and top quality. There are photos of some of the recipes, and they look scrumptious and good enough to eat! There are also pictures taken around different places on Amish farms. And I really love the little tidbits all throughout the book about the Amish and their lifestyle.
    As I looked through this book, I thoroughly enjoyed all of the photos, the food as well as the Amish pictures. And the little Amish tidbits truly warmed my heart as I got a glimpse of the Amish lifestyle. And one little cutesy thing I like is the Amish horse and buggy at the bottom of each recipe.
    This entire book is so very well thought out and put together.  This Amish Cookbook is a really beautiful book inside and out. Wanda E. Brunstetter and Barbour Publishing needs all the praise for creating an amazing Cookbook such as this.
    Oh and a few of my favorites are…..
    Crispy Baked Potatoes – these are so, so good!
    Baked Pork Chops – so very good and so easy!
    Golden Baked Chicken – Yummy!
    and
    Peanut Brittle!
    You may have heard of or used a lot of these recipes, but many were new to me. And to have so many recipes I will use in one book is even more amazing! As you can tell, I love, love this book. And I hope you will love it as much as I do!
    I received this book from the publisher Barbour Books to read and review.  I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 55.

    Is The Best of Amish Friends Cookbook Collection by Wanda Brunstetter just another Amish Cookbook? Well, I guess you could say it is, but it is different from any other. The book is beautiful inside and out; the recipes are different and really fun and interesting to read. It is divided into sections to include Breakfast Foods, Snacks, Breads and Jams, Pickles and Salads, Main Dishes and Desserts, Beverages and a section for Miscellaneous foods. And this cookbook comes from one of our favorite Amish fiction authors, Wanda Brunstetter. Now we not only have her wonderful Amish fiction to read, we have a cookbook with Amish foods along with real life information and pictures about the Amish people. You will not want to miss this one.

    All of these recipes sound so awesomely good! I tried a few of them; the Low Sugar Strawberry Freezer Jam, Amish Peanut Butter Spread, Hot Chicken Salad, and a few others, and they were easy to make and the taste was mouthwatering. I have yet to try the Buckwheat Pancakes, Cheesy Potato Breakfast Casserole, and so many more recipes in this book. I plan to try my cooking hand at these and all of the other recipes that I enjoyed reading. 

    I really like the way Barbour Books created this cookbook, with the recipes, pictures of the recipes, the Amish information throughout the book and the Amish pictures to go with the information. The color of the pages, different color borders between recipes, the pictures dividing each section, and the format of each page are all so eye-catching and pleasant to look at that I kept going back just to admire the beauty of the layout.

     mmmmmm mmmmmm good, this book has some delicious Amish recipes

     mmmmmm mmmmmm good, this book has some delicious Amish recipes for cooks to try. I  have made several of these recipes and they were a big hit in our home:   baked oatmeal, granola, poor man's steak, and more.  I love the pictures of the dishes along with scenery from the many Amish settlements in the United States.   Wanda also included Amish proverbs or sayings through out the book which is divided into sections.   Details about the various Amish settlements, transportation, schools, weddings, church services, and more are interspersed through out the enticing recipes.  Recipes for laundry soap, spot remover, playdough and other non-food items are nice additions to the cookbook to help save money and the environment.   I have been making the homemade dry laundry detergent learned from Amish for a year now and love it!  I want to try some of the recipes here for other cleaning products. This book is sure to become a favorite cookbook of mine.   I think I am going to copy some of my favorites onto recipe cards for my youngest daughter who just married in September of 2013.  This cookbook would make a wonderful gift for friends or family.
