This book is very straightforward cookbook. It starts out with a brief history of the Pennsylvania Dutch, which is nice.
The recipes are easy to read and follow, with no annoying typos or weird breaks in the text (as is often the case in the free cookbooks). All of the measurements are modern and oven temps are given where needed. Everything is thoughtfully laid out and the sections all make sense. The one drawback is the only way to navigate is in the index, unless you want to pan through the whole book to find a particular recipe. The book would be better if the illustrations/pictures could have been included.....but for free, I honestly can't complain!

The book covers the usual, from salads to desserts. The Chicken Corn Chowder and Scrapple recipes look really good and I can't wait to make them. There's even some breakfast offerings like doughnuts and Flannel Cakes (pancakes). There's lots of desserts to choose from and even pickles and preserves.

I'm glad that I took a chance and got this book!

This is my favorite cookbook that I have found for the Kindle thus far. The historical background on the Pennsylvania Dutch community is both funny and informative, and the recipes look great! The cookbook includes all the classics--cabbage rolls, noodles, all sorts of cookies, etc. My only complaint is the lack of pictures. There were apparently some cute drawings in the original version of this book that are missing in the Kindle edition. I suspect the drawings would add even more charm to what is already a charming Kindle cookbook.

I grew up in an Amish community (about the same thing as Pennsylvania Dutch), and worked in an Amish-owned restaurant as a teenager. Reading through this book was like opening a time capsule for me. Hot Dutch Potato Salad, Chicken and Corn Soup, RIVELS!!! I haven't thought of Rivels in ages! I'm not sure how many of the recipes I'll actually make (this is not exactly a health-oriented cookbook, although with modifications I suppose it would be possible), but reading it is a trip down memory lane.

Download this book if you'd like to try some German cooking. These recipes are very close or identical to recipes my German mother and German grandmother gave me, so it thrills me I can now recreate recipes I remember eating, for which I do not have a recipe. Just to get the recipe for Fastnachts was exciting!

My grandparents were Moravian immigrants, and my husband's grandparents were Pennsylvania Dutch. This cook book has many recipes we remember from visits with them. Hint: The index is at the end of the book.

I grew up in a Pennsylvania Dutch family and last year published a book of our family recipes (Fry Bacon. Add Onions: The Valentine Family & Friends Cookbook so I was very happy to see this book and was not at all disappointed. I saw so many recipes that are very similar to ones in my books. My Gram Werner was famous for her liver dumplings and I was so happy to pass on that recipe but in this book I found a virtually identical recipe called "liver noodles". And the recipes for dandelion salad, rhubarb pie, and currant preserves are so much like Gram's. It is just delightful to realize how similar in authenticity these recipes are. What a treasure this book is!

I'm born and bred central Pennsylvania. Although I'm not personally dutch or Amish my family and Grandmother cook this way and make a variety of items from Chicken and Waffles (not the southern kind) to beef and ham pot pie (not the pie kind).

The recipes in this are OK, but I doubt they're authentic. I'd suggest just looking the individual recipes up online and finding the best rated one.

I lived on the fringes of the Pennsylvania Dutch for quite a few years. While I didn't actually meet the Amish, I met many who left the fold. The Diner's in PA are (or were) the best. If you wanted a good Yankee Pot Roast, this was where to go. I remember ordering bean soups that would chase a cold chill right out of your system. And no one, but no one makes pies and deserts like the Amish. If we took a 40 minute drive we could get some homemade banana cream pie (which unfortunately is not in this book. But other yummy deserts are. Personally, I am sick of commercially made soups and deserts. They have no taste, or soul. Seriously, if you have a sweet tooth, try some of these deserts out.
