I love a good cookbook, and I adore exploring the cuisine of other cultures. In Wanda E. Brunstetter's Amish Friends From Scratch Cookbook, you will find recipes made with ingredients you can usually find in your pantry or grocery store. During these COVID Times, waiting for an Amazon or Ebay delivery can burst your cooking enthusiasm bubble. (Note: If you still somehow can't find the vital ingredient for a certain recipe, just flip to the back of the book: there is a very handy, comprehensive list of substitutions. The excellent indexes at the back of the book contain even more very simple recipes - make your own sweetened condensed milk, for example, and I am always grateful when a cookbook author includes a conversion table - or Common Equivalents, as this author so aptly entitled her index of measurements.) In this wonderful book, you will find easy to follow recipes for making your own cream cheese and "Dairy Queen" ice cream. Yum! The Hawaiian and Herman Carrot Cake recipes are both on my To Bake list! I'm scheduling a visit to St. Jacob's Market later this week to buy a bushel of carrots (and to sample this popular Amish market's famous Apple Fritter and Ice Cream dessert!) I can't wait to try the Zucchini Fritters or the Spicy Chicken Casserole. The Mojito Drink Concentrate sounds delicious - perfect for those of us who prefer non-alcoholic beverages. The ingredients for the Ramen Noodle Salad recipe are on my kitchen counter right now, waiting for me to file this review! The Grilled Chicken recipe is next! I was in such a cooking slump until I read this wonderful cookbook. My grocery list is now filled with wholesome, healthy ingredients. I'm going to whip up some good eats tonight, thanks to this collection of mouth-watering recipes. The pictures just seal the deal. The graphic of the baked chicken compelled to interrupt my writing of this review and pull some chicken out of my freezer! I highly recommend this collection of Amish recipes. It is beautifully presented and the recipes are totally "doable." This is a "must have" for any serious foodie and cookbook lover!

    I was looking forward to reading and trying this cookbook as I am interested in the Amish perspective and I love the idea of truly cooking from scratch. However, I found myself disappointed since many of the recipes call for highly processed ingredients that I wouldn't consider as "scratch" i.e. creamer powder, chocolate drink mix, Velveeta. There was a very interesting section on Dairy Products that I did find useful that taught how to make things like cheeses and yogurts truly from scratch.

There was a very interesting section on Dairy Products that I did find useful that taught how to make things like cheeses and yogurts truly from scratch. And lastly, there was a Miscellaneous section that had some odd recipes like "syrup" and "honey" using ingredients that did not include maple syrup or honey. Keeping in mind that what I was only able to review merely a sample (86 pages) of the complete cookbook (220 pages) I am hopefully that the final product has more of the actual from scratch, using real ingredients, recipes that I was expecting. Thank you to Netgalley and Barbour Publishing, Inc for allowing me to a sample copy of Wanda E. Brunstetter's Amish Friends From Scratch Cookbook in exchange for an honest review.

These are fascinating. I highly recommend adding this to your cookbook collection. It is one that I will use often. It gets a 5 out of 5 stars from me. A copy was provided by the publisher but these are my honest thoughts.

    This book was really disappointing. Most recipes could be found on Google already and it brings nothing new to the table. It is a shame because this could of been a good addition to Amish cooking books. Wish it would have been different.

    My eye was drawn to this cookbook initially because I live in an area with a large Amish population, so I know firsthand how delicious many Amish-made recipes taste. Thinking about that made me realize that one reason I enjoy Amish cooking is that it's usually made from scratch--the same reason I always enjoyed Sunday dinners at my grandmother's as a child.

Wanda E Brunstetter's Amish Friends From Scratch Cookbook provides exactly that--simple, delicious, made from scratch recipes made from readily available ingredients. No culinary degree required to make tasty food. There is a wide variety of recipes for all courses of a meal, and interspersed with the recipes are gorgeous photos and story snippets of Amish life. This cookbook will be well-used and loved in my home for sure! Thanks go to NetGalley and the publisher for the opportunity to read an advance copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

    This is one of those cookbooks that will not only get much use, it will be one to pass down from one family member to another.

The recipe here says to bake it; now that’s a really old-fashioned idea but the one where you will get the most flavor. Most people have made stuffed cabbage rolls but here is the German version called Galoushka. Very well laid out and wonderful photos. Guess I’ll head to the kitchen now and bake up some goodies.

    I was really looking forward to this cookbook because I love the idea of cooking from scratch. This book missed the mark for me though. The recipes were simple, but weren't anything that I couldn't easily find on google. Also, with this book being labeled as Amish recipes I wasn't expecting processed ingredients in a lot of the recipes.

Wanda E. Brunstetter's Amish Friends From Scratch Cookbook is a cookbook with basic Amish/country staple dishes in a simple style. Due out 1st Nov 2020 from Barbour Books, it's 224 pages and will be available in spiral bound format. The eARC provided was an 86 page sample with recipes for breakfast, (non-alcoholic) drinks and snacks, breads rolls & crackers, salads & side dishes, main dishes, desserts, snacks & candy, dairy products, miscellaneous, equivalents & substitutions (lots of good tips), and several indexes which include contributors, recipes by each section, and VERY helpfully, an index of main ingredients with recipes included featuring each main ingredient.. The photography is appealing and warm and emphasizes the comfort and simplicity of good food with good friends and family. The typography and layout are homey, with recipes presented individually, organized by section. Many of these recipes will be familiar to cooks who have had family recipes handed down for generations. The recipes all have ingredients listed in American standard measurements only. The written directions are clear and easy to follow. There is no nutritional information given for the sample recipes, and the contributors names are listed for each. There are very few convenience or premade ingredients here (as could be expected from the title). The only things I saw were things like instant coffee powder and powdered creamer. Everything else is from scratch. Also many of these recipes have large yields, perfect for parties, reunions, gatherings, etc. Five stars. (With the assumption that the rest of the recipes and book quality are to the same standard as the sample provided). Disclosure: I received an ARC at no cost from the author/publisher for review purposes.

The spiral bound softcover allows it to lay flat as you're using it and there are also stories about growing up in an Amish kitchen. This is a cookbook that you'll want to keep, but it would also be a great gift! I received a copy of this book from the author and publisher but I wasn't obligated to post a favorable review.

    Some of my earliest memories are being in the kitchen with my family. Everyone had a job to do no matter how small we were.

My box is overflowing still with treasures from my family and friends. This new collection of recipes gathered by Wanda Brunstetter is full of recipes that have been tried and tested. One recipe to note especially, is Coffee Shop Brownies....from one chocolate lover to another, they are quite good! The Buttermilk pancake recipe conjures up memories of my dad on a Saturday morning making his special pancakes. Other recipes that are noteworthy are Delicious Cream Cheese and Marshmallow Creme Fluff. Those are two things I thought were found only in the grocery store! If you are looking for tried and true recipes for your family, I recommend this cookbook. Consider adding this to your gift list for budding cooks in the family. You may benefit by an invitation to enjoy one of these good recipes around the table.

    I love each and every one of Wanda's cookbooks. The photographs are beautiful, every recipe I've made is delicious, and the tidbits about Amish life are so interesting! What I love about this particular cookbook is that the ingredients are all so simple -- and they're often things I already have in my pantry; staples that are basic, simple, and readily available. I have only had this cookbook for a few weeks, and I have already made several of the recipes! My favorite so far is the Garlic Potato I love each and every one of Wanda's cookbooks.

They're easy enough for every day cooking, yet delicious enough to be a perfect holiday or special meal side dish. In a world where the 'standard American diet' is full of processed convenience foods, this cookbook is a refreshing reminder that made-from-scratch food is still possible and delicious! This is a cookbook I'll reach for again and again. This book was provided to me by Barbour Publishing. I was not required to leave a positive (or any) review. Opinions and ideas expressed in this review are my own.

The only issue I had with this as a book was the From Scratch element. To me this implies making every element of the dish from scratch (except things like mayo) however there were what I would class as convenience items, such as tomato sauce, tinned pumpkin or chicken soup. That aside the stories told throughout the book were fascinating and I now feel I have a greater insight into Amish home cooking. Thanks to NetGalley and Barbour books for access to this ARC.

    This addition to my Brunstetter collection of reading and cooking books is another excellent investment. The recipes use basic pantry ingredients and do not require a culinary degree to complete. The family oriented menus are great for a few or a crowd and the easy to follow recipes insure quality results for all. I've already tried about 30 of them and have bookmarked at least that many more to try before the holidays.

    Since I’ve been cooking from scratch from a young age for a large family, many of these recipes are familiar or close to dishes I have made before. However, there are some uniquely Amish dishes in this cookbook, some I still need to try. I’ve always been curious how the Amish make root beer, now I know, though I’m waiting for a special occasion to try a batch myself. The biggest drawback for cookbooks is when they are online. It makes it much more difficult to use than if you have a hard copy.

    Another great Amish Friends cookbook from this author. If you love Amish cooking, cooking from scratch, beautiful, appealing pictures of these dishes, you will love this book. Organized by food types, an index of contributors, a section on substitution items, recipes by key ingredients, and recipes for miscellaneous things, this is a “must have” to add to your cookbook collection. I can’t wait to try many of these recipes. Thanks to Barbour Publishers and NetGalley for the advance sample copy of t Another great Amish Friends cookbook from this author.

    Looking forward for this book to be published. Every time I see an Amish cookbook, I get excited. I myself have food allergies and intolerance that preclude me from eating many of the recipes without substitution but I enjoy making them as suggested for my family. Cooking from scratch has been a long time pleasure but in this time of COVID quarantines it is even more important to be able to cook from our pantries. This wonderful cookbook makes it possible and delicious.
