Wanda E. Brunstetter’s Amish Friends Christmas Cookbook

My thoughts:  What a joy to browse this lovely cookbook. It is more than just a compilation of recipes. It is truly a beautiful book that sprinkles pinches and dashes of Scripture throughout, has lovely pictures of Winter scenes as well as prepared food, and short essays on Amish life and Amish Christmas celebrations.

I thought, with an inward chuckle, that I have many of these same (or recipe-cousins) recipes that I have prepared through the ages and they are simply good stuff. But I also chuckled inwardly that so many of these recipes are loaded with the richness of sugars, cheeses, butters and other succulent ingredients that many eschew today because of their personal specialty diets.

But if you're not one to avoid specific foods, this is a cookbook you will want to add to your collection and gift to someone who shares your same enthusiasm about cooking "the good stuff."

Recipes include delectable sweets, gifts from the kitchen, main dishes, breakfast dishes, salads. Just a heap of good stuff.

And I might warn you...... This "Wanda E. Brunstetter" book is sure to literally fly off the shelves So if you're interested, you might just want to get one before they are long gone.
