After reading the introduction I searched for something to make. I was only going to do a few recipes but they tasted so good I made more. I was encouraged by the fact that my family loved all the recipes I made. I tried Zucchini Chocolate Chip Bread, muffins, Baked Oatmeal, Potato Pancakes, and Zucchini Fritters.
There are a wide variety of categories: Quick Breads and Yeast Breads, Breakfast Foods, Soups and Salads, Meats and Main Dishes, Cakes and Frostings, Pies, Cookies and Bars, Desserts and Candies, Snacks and Beverages, Relishes, Pickles, James and Jellies, Amish Church Meals, and Amish Wedding Meals.
The author's instructions are simple, the ingredients are easy to find, and there is a note from the author about the dish. The potato pancake note says, “These potato pancakes are good with a slice of cheese on top, or with bacon crumbled in them before cooking. We have these with biscuits and gravy sometimes. A tasty recipe!” I agree.
I liked that the author gave readers at look at meals that are usually associated with a church service. She shared some pictures at their church I liked. The last section is titled An Amish Wedding where the author shares how she and the community prepared for her daughter’s wedding. The chapter includes pictures and recipes of the food that was made for the event.
There’s a helpful index in the back of the book. You’ll love reading this book, making the recipes and telling your friends about the yummy garden to table meals you’ve made. I know I did.

Impressive. She has quite the collection of delicious, homey recipes. This book's subtitle is "Everyday Recipes From Farm & Kitchen" so of course I knew I was going to love it. Let me tell you, farmer's don't go hungry!
Healthy, comforting dishes fill this beautiful book. I had to take some pictures with my iPhone and let you see a sample of what you will find in this cookbook.
The photographs that grace her pages are extraordinary. glossy and stunning, they make the cookbook a pleasure to visit. I'm a visual person and I enjoyed an afternoon of simply thumbing through and feasting with my eyes. But don't neglect the vast array of dishes to make and serve your family, friends, and neighbors in here. This book could help you become the most popular lady at church potlucks and neighborhood parties because it's filled with the kind of food that we love and remember.
Every farm woman needs this. It's like having your Gramma, mother's, and auntie's recipes gathered in one pretty place. But even if you're not a farmer, you'll love this cookbook.
You too will find stories that go along with each recipe. Lovina shares with the reader how she used the recipe and what it means to her. These little notes make you feel as if she wrote the recipe down for you with her own pen.
The chapter I enjoyed reading the most would be the chapter devoted to Amish Wedding Meals. Okay, these recipes are created for HUGE crowds of people. You can look at the photos, read her notes, and just imagine yourself nestled in a church service or around a table.
This is one of those cookbooks that you can actually see yourself using. From breakfast, lunch, to dinner. Spring, summer, fall, or winter. There are recipes that cover every setting and season. Throughout my own life I have had many of these dishes. Lovina has a way of simplifying each of them to make them approachable.
There are many recipes for rhubarb that I am excited to give a try. Quite a few recipes call for lard. Some use Velveeta or your favorite cheese. There are recipes for canning, delicious beverages, desserts, breads, and main dishes. There's something in here for everyone, but most of all these are recipes to bring people to the table.
This cookbook was a gift from Herald Press for sharing my review with you.
