From the Back Cover

Over 200 mouthwatering recipes--fresh from the farm

I'm Dawn Stoltzfus. Welcome to my kitchen! I was raised on a Mennonite farm where simple, wholesome food was a key ingredient of the good life. Now I'm opening up my recipe box, wiping away the crumbs and wrinkles from the well-loved recipe cards, and sharing them with you. From Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls and Strawberry Shortcake to Old-Fashioned Beef Stew and Chicken and Herb Dumplings, all the best comfort foods I learned to cook from my mother are here, along with some dishes that may surprise you!

In addition to the simple, wholesome recipes for starters, main dishes, sides, and desserts, I share favorite stories from my Mennonite upbringing, tips and tricks for easy meal planning and preparation, and ideas for serving with flair.

If you enjoy feeding your family hearty, wholesome meals made with fresh ingredients and lots of love, please join me in the kitchen!


Dawn Stoltzfus is a wife, a mother of two sweet little boys and one precious baby girl, and a lover of anything creative. She started and ran The Farmer's Wife market until 2008, when she sold it in order to stay at home to raise her family. She loves to cook, for one or three hundred. Her love of cooking was inspired by her mother and developed as she cooked for her family of six on their active, working dairy farm in Ohio.

I really think that I would like Dawn Stoltzfus if I met her. She is a down-to-earth person who seems to enjoy cooking and spending time with her family. Her upbringing on a farm in Ohio with fresh ingredients makes me jealous. I grew up in Los Angeles with 6 million people and lots of concrete. I didn't see my first tomato plant until I was 29 years old. I tended my first garden when I moved to TX that same year. It was a joy to have fresh produce and see the fruit of my labor. I imagine that is what Dawn's upbringing was like most of the time. She must have really enjoyed the fresh milk and clean air of living on a farm. Ahh....I can just imagine it.

When I first received this cookbook I took the time to read through many of the recipes. While doing this I came across all of Dawn's notes to the reader. I really enjoyed reading her little vignettes about her family and about her faith. Again, I think that I would really enjoy getting to know Dawn. I actually think that I enjoyed reading her "food for thought" section more than I enjoyed reading the cookbook.

The cookbook is organized into sections like most cookbooks (Appetizers, Main entrees, breakfast and breads, etc). It contains easy-to-read recipes. Many of the recipes contain fresh ingredients and seem commonplace for life on a farm (Amish Fried Dressing, Brown Butter Green Beans, Farmer's BLT, Amish Peanut Butter, Honey Corn Bread). There are several recipes, however, that seem out-of-place for a cookbook titled, "A Farmer's Daughter: Recipes from a Mennonite Kitchen." There are several modern-day recipes that she must have picked up after leaving the farm. These recipes seem oddly placed in this cookbook (i.e.

Mmmm......mmmmm good recipes. Real and easy (for the most part), with ingredients that most of us keep in our cabinets any way. I loved this cookbook and could find only one thing that I would do different - I like to see pictures of food. However, I know that to include pictures in a cookbook brings up the cost. At the current rate this cook book is affordable and well worth the investment. It would be a wonderful Christmas gift for the hurried family cook in your family. These recipes are down-home yummy recipes that most families will really enjoy.

I liked the fact that the ingredients were things that I had on hand and the recipes were things that "real" families eat. I am a mother of 5 children and though I would love elaborate recipes with foreign ingredients my children would not touch it. Nor do I have all the time in the world to spend cooking up recipes. SO this is practical and yummy. My family liked every recipe I tried on them and I am still in the process of trying more.

Thanks to Revell for this review copy!

I think it's so interesting that there is this fascination with Amish and Mennonite cooking. I had a thought about why this might be just now. I think they are seen as simpler, back to the basics, from scratch cooks--who embody that idea of "wholesome goodness" in their cooking. I think it is because we romanticize the way of life of the Amish and Mennonites.

That being said, I have been told by many who make treks up to nearby Lancaster, Pennsylvania, that the Amish and Mennonites are good cooks. Such comments pique my curiosity. I've had Amish cookbooks before and they have never wowed me. But, I can't resist trying a new cookbook. Hence, my mom and I found ourselves trying out recipes from this cookbook, A Farmer's Daughter: Recipes from a Mennonite Kitchen by Dawn Stoltzfus. My rule of thumb is that I must try at least three different recipes from a cookbook before reviewing it. In this case, we tried the Baked Peach French Toast, the Creamy Baked Macaroni and Cheese (crockpot option), and the Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Oatmeal Bars.

Here's my take:

1) Cookbook mechanics: The recipes are easy to read and well written. Ingredients are easy to identify, common, and labeled well. It's black and white without any pictures, but the ease of reading the recipes partially makes up for that.

2) The food itself: I admit it. I'm picky. I have tried a lot of recipes over the years. Of the three recipes, they were all just okay. The peach french toast was pretty good for oven baked french toast, but it really wasn't anything special. The "creamy" mac and cheese was not "creamy" at all when make according to the author's crockpot directions. Finally, the bars were well received by the folks who ate them, but I found fault with them.
