The recipes make your mouth water just reading them. The ingredients are easy to come by, using standards like cream of mushroom soup for a soup base. I thought the book was heavy on dessert recipes, but that's a matter of taste. If you have a growing family making things for the children is, I'm sure, a priority. Milk, cream, and butter are heavily featured in the main dishes and soups as well as the desserts. This makes them even more delicious, but if you or anyone in your family has a problem with lactose it will take creative planning to adjust the ingredients.
I thoroughly enjoyed the book. Now if I'm in Florida, I'd like to visit Yoder's restaurant and see if I can find an Amish bake sale at the farmer's market.
I reviewed this book for the Booksneeze program.
