Review of "Simply Delicious Amish Cooking"
Review: I have enjoyed browsing through the pages of Sherry Gore's "Simply Delicious Amish Cooking" cookbook. Aside from being just a collection of appealing recipes, the book is interspersed with photos of the Pinecraft community and short stories that welcome readers into the community. The stories cover day-to-day events, family news, and some humorous anecdotes that create a quaint vision of Pinecraft. All of the recipes sound "Simply Delicious." Although I have not yet had a chance to try any recipes, I have already marked a few that I am excited to try, like Morning Glory Muffins, Sand Dollar Sugar Cookies, and Italian Cream Cake. The full color photos give mouthwatering examples of prepared recipes, ranging from hearty to sweet. I love the cheerful and colorful cover of "Simply Delicious," but I question the long-tern durability of cover construction. I will enjoy a visit to the Pinecraft Amish and Mennonite community through my taste buds whenever I taste a completed recipe. And maybe one day I will visit the area and stop in Yoder's Restaurant or Mom's Restaurant to taste truly authentic Amish cooking.
