Amish Friends Christmas Cookbook by Wanda E. Brunstetter

I wasn't quite sure if I was reviewing the book in the picture above, because the picture on my cover looks slightly different.  The bottom is the same, as is the middle, with title, but the top of mine doesn't have any food, but rather an Amish horse and buggy and a snow scene.  I checked and both publication dates were the same.  So I am certain it's the same book.  At some point the picture must have changed.

I also have an older, 2014 version of this book and there are some of the same recipes in this version, however there are additional recipes and they sound really good.  This version has a different arrangement of the recipe topics and different indexes.  There is an index of the contributors, which is really nice to see. There is an index of recipes by section and a recipe of the key ingredients, such as beef, beans, etc.

The pictures are really nice and appealing and there are some really nummy looking foods!  Each section has beautiful Amish pictures and a appropriate type of scripture.  The contributers are mentioned and where their Amish community was, coming from many different locations, which would give you samples of different Amish groups, I'm sure.

I am anxious to start cooking!

I received a complimentary copy of this book from Barbour Publishing and was under no obligation to post a review.
