A Farmer's Daughter cookbook REVIEW

About the Book:
Welcome to the warm and inviting kitchen of Dawn Stoltzfus, a young Mennonite wife and mother who was raised on a dairy farm where simple, wholesome food was a key ingredient of the good life. In A Farmer's Daughter, she opens up her recipe box, wipes away the crumbs and wrinkles from the well-loved recipes, and shares them with cooks and food-lovers everywhere. She offers us over two hundred delicious recipes that reflect the comfort foods she learned to cook from her mother, the same hearty and creative recipes she made and sold at The Farmer's Wife Market. Along with the simple, wholesome recipes for starters, main dishes, sides, and desserts, readers will find charming stories from Dawn's Mennonite upbringing, tips and tricks for easy meal planning and preparation, and ideas for serving with flair. Anyone who loves to feed their loved ones hearty, wholesome meals will treasure this cookbook.

My Thoughts:
I will be honest with you.... When in comes to cooking, I am one of those who knows what I like, and VERY RARELY, will I stray from that. So, it's safe to say that I don't venture out and make new recipes very often. HOWEVER, after going through A Farmer's Daughter's cookbook, things just might change!

When reviewing a cookbook & giving an honest review, you must actually cook some of the recipes. In looking through each section, I honestly had a difficult time deciding which recipe to choose! There are soooo many that I want to try! I decided on the Creamy Baked Macaroni and Cheese! OH EM GEE!! We all LOVED it!

I have DEFINITELY found my new FAVORITE Cookbook! Not only will you find amazing recipes, but there are excellent tips for decorating! My favorite part of this cookbook aside from all the recipes are Dawn's "Food For Thought!" She shares her heart and the life lessons she learned as a little girl or even the lessons the Lord still is teaching her today! I felt like I was sitting across her table, sharing a cup of coffee and chatting with a new friend!

This cookbook will make a great addition to any kitchen and a GREAT gift for friends, teachers, newly married, or even kids going off to college!

As I said before...This is DEFINITELY my new FAVORITE cookbook!

Thank you Donna @ Revell, A Division of Baker Publishing Group for allowing me this complimentary cookbook in exchange for my honest review!
