This cookbook is a special collection of recipes that Amish cooks have shared with Wanda E. Brunstetter over the years and it has 224 pages filled with goodness! There are special tips from Amish cooks, anecdotes of the Amish lifestyle, beautiful photos and recipes galore! The spiral binding makes it easy to use and there are two indexes that list the recipes by both category and key ingredients. Fans of Brunstetter will also appreciate the complete bibliography of her books, including the three books in the Amish Cooking Class series. This is a cookbook that I will use over and over again and I am so glad that I could get it. I recommend it for anyone who enjoys recipes and cookbooks!

Amish Cooking Class Cookbook What a yummy, delicious, fatten me up, outrageously scrumptious food. When you read the descriptions you think Oh these things they sound great. Then you make them and boy Oh boy are you sorry you did because they are too good to be true and they are very fattening. I think, but I trade some of the fattening things with good things and it works great. This book is so well worth the wait y'all. I received a copy of this book from the Publisher and Netgalley; all of the opinions expressed are all my own. if you would like to read more of my Christian book reviews go to christianlybookreviewers.blogspot.com

A little different from most cookbooks, The Amish Cooking Class Cookbook by Wanda E. Brunstetter is based on a series of Wanda’s novels, I didn’t get a lot of recipes or pictures but what I read, I enjoyed. Definitely wanting this spiral bound Amish Cookbook. I really liked what I saw in my gifted preview copy from NetGalley. My review is voluntary.

This is a cookbook that will hit the comfort food spot in your soul! It is homey, practical and very family friendly. It is loaded with everything from desserts, beverages, canning, mains and sides, cooking with children, treats for your pet, home care recipes and more. This a beautifully photographed book with a variety of vignette pages about life in the Amish community. This book is intended to go with the Amish Cooking Class series by the same name... The Amish Cooking Class Series (trilogy). I decided to test run some recipes from the book before sharing with you. I tried four recipes on my family this past week and they loved every single one of them. I made Heidi’s Sweet and Sour Meat Loaf (pg. 120) It is super easy to make and has amazing flavor. My meat eating bunch ate it right up. I also tried Baked Stuffed Tomatoes (pg. 113), Squash Croquettes… (pg. 173), and two loaves of Banana Bread (pg 39). I am telling you, this book is beautiful! I also love that it lays flat with the spiral binding. This is such a great cookbook for the homesteader in you! I give it a 5 out of 5 stars and will continue to try new recipes from this book for a long time to come. I received a complimentary copy of this book from Barbour Publishing and was under no obligation to post a review.

Wanda Brunstetter's Amish Cooking Class Cookbook is inspired by her Amish Cooking Class three book series. Let me just say it is.....amazing! This is a cookbook to be read and used. Recipes compiled are from the three novels and various Amish women. Readers will find a section on advice or tips from Amish cooks. The many recipes are divided and subdivided into normal cookbook categories. Look for the Recipes for Kids section. It is a nice one the kiddos will enjoy. Descriptions of the cast of characters from the cooking classes and pictures of the book covers are featured in the book. Scripture is sprinkled throughout which is a treasure. The pictures are vivid and beautiful. It is spiral bound so it will open up flat on your counter making it much easier to read when mixing and stirring. This is a cookbook for cooks, those just learning to cook, and those that like to read cookbooks. It will make a delightful gift for so many people. Don't forget to get one for yourself. Another 5 star book that I highly recommend to you

I am a huge fan of Amish stories. They always seem to have scenes centered around food and cooking, especially Brunstetter’s Amish Cooking Class series. To finally have the cookbook in hand is a treat! It is chock full of good old down home Amish cooking. I love how this cookbook not only has great recipes (definitely recommend the classic Baked Oatmeal!) but also some hacks that I never knew about. How many times have I needed powdered sugar but didn’t have any? Well, now I do not need to worry. And neither do you if it has happened in your kitchen. Just pulverize white sugar in a food processor or spice grinder and you will have powdered sugar that is delectably white and fluffy in no time. This and many more hacks are part of the treasure trove in the Amish Cooking Class Cookbook. Not only are we introduced to the cast of characters from the novels but each section begins with a lovely Scripture, followed by enticing recipes and images of appetizing dishes that are drool worthy. These women enjoy a slower paced lifestyle but they do actually use canned and over-the-counter ingredients for their dishes. Not everything is all from scratch, which makes this a cookbook anyone can benefit from! Included is information about Amish culture which makes for more fascinating reading. There is even a section for children with many easy-to-prepare favorites from childhood. I plan on using this cookbook for many meals but I was delighted to find a Miscellaneous section containing recipes for Health, Household, and Canine Treats. There are a lot of dogs in my adult children's homes and I have long wanted to make them tasty homemade doggie biscuits.

There are many great recipes within this book. I love all the extra little tips. This tells a bit about Wanda E. Brunstetter cooking class series that are wonderful also. I look forward to making many of these recipes. I received this from Barbour Publishing for a fair and honest opinion that I gave of my own free will.

I love cookbooks and this one is a keeper. It accompanies the Amish Cooking Class trilogy by Wanda Brunstetter. The pictures are very nice and the insights on Amish living are quaint. The recipes are interesting and look like they can actually be prepared by anyone. I was a little confused at first look. I didn't read any descriptions or reviews beforehand. This book is almost like fiction. Some of the recipes list actual people that contributed. Then there are recipes that were submitted by fictional people from the book series with little made-up notes about the contributor. Then there were recipes that had no contributor listed, so I guess the author submitted them? I concluded that this is a compilation of possible recipes that could have been collected by the fictional Heidi Troyer and her fictional cooking class participants. So, the recipes are not necessarily all Amish recipes. Regardless, it has a wide variety of delicious recipes. A bonus is the spiral binding because it lays flat on the counter.

DChatley More than 1 year ago
Absolutely love this cookbook. And what a neat idea. This is the cookbook for every day people like me. As a working mother I don't have time for complex recipes. This book has over 200 recipes in 10 categories including: beverages, bread, breakfast, dessert, main doses, spread and pickles, soup, salads and sides, snacks and dips and even recipes for children. Recipes are easy to follow with ingredients clearly listed. So all of this makes it an excellent cookbook. What takes this cookbook to the next level is the additional features. First of all, I love how it includes a verse at the beginning of each chapter much like Heidi put verses on the back of her recipes. Secondly, the cookbook includes basic tips for cooking which are those little secrets that take an average cook to a great cook and makes the cooks job more efficient. Included in this section are tips for making potatoes easier to peel, how to have egg shells practically fall off, how to get your cookies fluffy and so much more. Also this cookbook has articles on understanding the Amish as well as descriptions of the characters from the 3 books. So you get a rare find in this cookbook, tips from experienced cooks and a multitude of easy to follow recipes. As I browsed this cookbook I felt like I had walked into one of Heidi's cooking class.

I enjoyed the Amish Cooking Class Cookbook. It had everything I look for in a cookbook - including a variety of good basic and new recipes from appetizers to desserts and tips. It also included some fun extras, such as Amish recipes, insight into the Amish lifestyle and kitchens. There were also miscellaneous recipes for doggie treats, lotions and bath salts and household cleaners.

A delightful cookbook full of recipes, Amish history and information the about Amish way of life. I enjoyed reading each recipe and plan to making the food myself. The photographs are beautiful and truly make me want to visit Amish country. This is a great book to give as a gift, too.

This is more than simply a cookbook. It is favorite family recipes, cooking tips gleaned from years of experience, and a glance into the life of the Amish. Having had the privilege of dining in an Amish home a couple times, I saw their love for God, family, and community in action. This cookbook offered a little bit more of that experience. And if you’re a fan of Wanda’s Amish Cooking Class series, you’ll enjoy the references to some of the beloved characters. Not to mention the beautiful photos showcasing some of the foods and bits of life on an Amish homestead. I love cookbooks and always enjoy trying out new recipes. There are plenty of good, down home, simple ones here to try. I received a complimentary copy of this book from Barbour Publishing and was under no obligation to post a review. The opinions and thoughts are strictly my own.

What can I say but yum, yum, and yum? I am always on the prowl for simple, quick ways that will feed my family, preferably healthy recipes that I can actually understand. As I went through this book I was quite pleased that most of the recipes were short and with ingredients I knew and often use anyway. There are photographs along with some of the recipes so I can get a sense of what a dish might look like. The section I was most looking forward too was the breakfast foods. Breakfast is my favorite time to eat and I enjoy a good big breakfast, though my knowledge is limited in what to make. These will be some of the first recipes I try and I am looking forward to it. This is a very nice spiral bound cookbook with even a section for children and easy to make recipe’s for baby food. I wish I had this when my kids were babies. I will be using and discovering new recipes in this cook book for years to come. I received a complimentary copy of this book from Barbour Publishing and was under no obligation to post a review.

I believe my favorite sections of this book were the informational pages about Amish life and cooking. I did have a few favorites like: Amish Mornings, Amish: Slow and Steady Wins the Race, Amish Children in the Kitchen. The second section would be the advice from fellow cooks. Some I already knew, but there were some new surprises: personal – sized meatballs made in muffin tins, making a boxed cake mix taste like homemade, making your own buttermilk. I also enjoyed the Bible verses that were shared throughout the cookbook. My favorite was from John 6:35 “And Jesus said unto them, I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on me shall never thirst.” There are many recipes that sound delicious and I hope to make in the future. But I am going to give you just a few examples to whet your appetite. They are the Spiced Apple Muffins, Coconut Pecan Cake, Shortcake Delight, Mock Steak Patties, and Cheesy Chicken Chowder.

Wow, what a beautiful cookbook this is! Bestselling author, Wanda Brunstetter, has compiled the recipes she used in her Amish Cooking Class series of three books about a young Amish woman who held cooking classes. She also included recipes from other Amish cooks and the book has 250 recipes. The book itself is spiral bound and full of full-color pictures of foods and everyday life of the Amish. Just lovely to skim through (and drool over!). The book begins with an overview of each of the three books in the series, The Seekers, The Blessing, and The Celebration, and the characters in each. Another section gives very basic tips on cooking and food prep. Short articles, eleven of them, on Amish kitchens, mornings, sweets and canning are interspersed throughout the recipe sections. Recipe sections include the typical parts of a cookbook, breads, beverages, breakfast foods, desserts, main dishes and the like. Included at the back are three indexes, one that lists the contributors of the recipes, one that lists the recipes by section in the book and the third lists the recipes by key ingredients, which I like a lot. This is a great cookbook that I think I will be using on a regular basis. I thoroughly enjoyed reading the books in the series and am looking forward to reading through and using the cookbook. I received a complimentary copy of this book from Barbour Publishing and was under no obligation to post a review. The opinions are my own.

Wonderfully and colorfully illustrated! Heart-warming tasty recipes! Some of my favorites are listed in this amazing book. AMISH COOKING CLASS COOKBOOK, by Wanda E. Brunstetter, is filled with mouth-watering Breakfast foods, delicious desserts, canning ideas, beautifully illustrated main dishes, plus many more great features. There is even an awesome Index in the back featuring contributors. Wanda has weaved together a book full of Amish recipe knowledge for everyone to enjoy, even recipes for pets. Plus; there is even a list of the books for each cooking class, characters listed from each book, and a short story about each character. I love it! And when it started out by saying "step into the Amish kitchen," I felt as though I was there along with Heidi and the others. The "advice from fellow cooks" was amazingly awesome too! I love this great book! I received a complimentary copy of this book from Barbour Publishing and was under no obligation to post a review.

This cookbook has such beautiful pictures to go with the recipes. The font is a nice size so it is easy to read while cooking. I actually tried several recipes and we enjoyed them, especially the meatballs. I have many more we plan to enjoy in the future. This is a great follow up companion to the Amish Cooking Class series of books by Wanda Brunstetter. I especially liked the section entitled Advice From Fellow Cooks and the scriptures at the beginning of each section. This would make a great gift besides adding to your favorite cookbooks. I will enjoy this for many years to come. I received a complimentary copy from Barbour Publishing. The honest review and opinions are my own and were not required.

Amish Cooking Class Cookbook is a wonderful recipe book with over 200 recipes from the characters in all three books in the series, An Amish Cooking Class. The book is divided into a traditional cookbook style full of recipes the whole family will enjoy. It also includes information about storage, tips for cooking and making homemade staples, canning, and other great ideas.

This cookbook is beautifully put together! Solid pages that won’t easily rip when flipping through to find your favorite recipe. Gorgeous pictures of yummy food that is easy enough for you to make! In the beginning there is a bit of info on the novels that this is based from. It is quite neat to see the connections between recipes and characters. A very handy little section of advice from fellow cooks had some great tidbits in it that I never knew and definitely plan on implementing! Appropriate Bible verses sprinkled throughout made me smile – I like additions like that. So many great Amish recipes in here and you know they are known to be spectacular cooks! My favorite is always the sweets and desserts. Such a plethora of good ones – hot fudge pudding cake, cashew brittle, caramel corn, cream puffs. All have simple and easy ingredients – simple enough for a novice like me to have great success! I have been testing many out so far and love the results. So does my family! (apple butter – YUMMM) I was given this by Barbour Publishing and in no way required to write a review.

We travel many miles to enjoy real Amish cooking so I was excited to be able to have an authentic Amish cookbook. The 202 pages contain some of the most delicious sounding recipes. I especially have enjoyed the beautiful full color photos of many of the finished products. There are also cooking tips, which I certainly need! Information on the lives of the Amish with pictures of them working is an added bonus. Each section such as, beverages, breads, soups, breakfast foods, desserts (my personal favorite), main dishes, salads and sides, has a scripture on the page divider. The last book by Wanda Brunstetter in this cooking class series was The Celebration in which Heidi Troyer taught a children's cooking class. I was pleased to see that this cookbook even has a section of recipes for children. Another plus for young mothers is a section of baby food recipes. Knowing what is in your baby's food and that it is pure with no preservatives is very important in their overall wellbeing and one less thing for a mother to worry about. The miscellaneous recipe section has recipes for your canine family member and also ingredients for bath salts, body lotion and natural cleaning products. These recipes are simple enough for even the beginner cook. They are easy to follow and understand. Valentines Day is this week and I'm planning to make Heidi Troyer's Strawberry Shortcake on page 70 with an accompanying color photo. Yum!

This is a lovely and beautiful cookbook. Readers of Wanda Brunstetter's Amish books will probably be doubly delighted with the cookbook as it ties in with her Amish Cooking Class novels.There are beautiful color pictures of prepared dishes and of ingredients, people, and scenery. There are tips and substitutions. And there are "behind the scenes" glimpses into Amish life, and each section begins with a Bible verse. Having eaten at Amish restaurants, many of the recipes are of familiar foods--or familiar from Amish stories. Like any cookbook, you pick and choose from what you think your family would like and according to dietary restrictions. This book makes a lovely addition to a cookbook collection! I received a complimentary copy of this book from Barbour Publishing and was under no obligation to post a review. However, I find this book really nice and am glad to recommend it!
