'Gather Around the Amish Table' book review

We took the pumpkin cookie recipe & turned it into a bar cookie!

I had anticipated that an Amish cookbook would be time consuming, difficult to replicate recipes, and just simply above both my skill set as well as my timeframe. Oh, I was definitely wrong with all my assumptions!
  • I love this cookbook. It holds the prettiness of The Pioneer Woman in that it's truly a beautiful book in and of itself. If you are building a collection of "pretty" books for your kitchen, Gather Around the Amish Table is one you want to add.
  • The recipes are simple. Basic. Time savers. Ingredients are things I either have on hand or can easily purchase at the store.
  • The recipes are great for large families. And regular size families.
  • The book contains great stories. It is fun reading the snippets regardless of what you decide to make.
  • It is a wonderful collaboration. Gather Around the Amish Table contains "treasured recipes and stories from Plain Communities".  In some ways it reminds me of the church and family reunion cookbooks I have in my cabinet, but contains a wonderfully professional touch that helps create a phenomenal resource!
I received a complimentary copy in exchange for my honest review. ~LDK
