Jump into Fall Baking with Lucy Leid’s New Cookbook and an Amish Baking Basket Giveaway!




Gather Around the Amish Table(MennoMedia, September 2015)
Straight from Amish kitchens to yours, this cookbook offers favorite family recipes and charming stories from Amish and Mennonite cooks.
Bake the pecan rolls that taste best after an ice-skating party, or try the hoagies that a community sold to help an Amish family with hospital bills. Discover the cocoa cupcakes with instructions to “stir by hand” that one young cook took literally, or whip up the whoopie pies that one Amish woman took to market in her horse and buggy.
These cherished recipes speak of comforting traditions, lively communities, and strong Christian faith. Gather your family around the table to sample the nourishing fare and trademark charm of the plain people. In the words of one cookbook contributor: “Bake someone happy!”

My Review~
As soon as I received this book,I could not wait to start looking and reading at all the recipes. It has recipes from apples to zucchini and everything in between. I have always been amazed with the Amish and when I have the chance to visit where they own restaurants I am so excited. But that is in Indiana and I am in Minnesota,that does not happen too often. But now I can make all my Amish favorites right at home with Lucy Leid! I have tried a few on these in here and one of favorites is the Cherry Coffee Cake~that tastes so good in the morning and it is so easy to make! 
Many of the recipes have stories with them too,so fun to read about the people that gave the recipes for us to make in our homes too.I love that this is nothing fancy,just good down home cooking and most of the ingredients you already have at hand.I love this cookbook and think that you will too!
