The Mennonite Disaster Service volunteers who helped build our Katrina Cottage in Pass Christian, Mississippi, introduced us to Esther Shank, and when she sent us her cookbook, we were pleasantly surprised. Containing more than 1,000 recipes she collected and perfected over 25 years, it's an everything-and-then-some volume on the level of The Joy of Cooking—with a country slant. Next to recipes for classic casseroles, salads, and cookies are instructions for pasteurizing milk, cleaning fish, and plucking chickens. A section at the end also gives 'non-food recipes,' such as how to make your own soap or houseplant fertilizer and tips for removing all kinds of stains. It's a bible for old-fashioned self-sufficiency.
Did you ever wish you could find the perfect cookbook for the bride to be who has a hard time boiling water? Mennonite Country-Style Recipes is a very comprehensive cookbook, which gives the cook not only practical recipes, but many ideas and helpful hints besides. --Prairie Overcomer

Author Esther H. Shank provides expert advice on topics like baking, canning, freezing, preserving, and filleting fish. The recipes themselves are beautifully laid out and expertly explained. This is country style cooking so some indgredients like MSG and processed cheese might scare some people off. However, you can easily substitute for the ingredients mentioned in this book.
If I had no other cookbook I could easily spend the rest of my cooking life with Menonite Country-Style Recipes & Kitchen Secrets.
