Jump into Fall Baking with Lucy Leid’s New Cookbook and an Amish Baking Basket Giveaway

Disclosure: I received this book complimentary in exchange for an honest review.

I love to cook so I was so excited to receive this lovely cookbook featuring Amish baking. This cookbook offers so many favorite Amish family recipes that have been handed down over the years. The recipes are blended in with sweet stories from Amish and Mennonite cooks.I kind of got lost in some of the stories as I was reading through the book, they were so captivating. The recipe for the Pecan Rolls shared how delicious they taste following a winter ice-skating party for example. One Amish community sold their special hoagies to help one of the families with hospital bills. Then there were the Cocoa Cupcakes that a budding cook got "stir by hand" confused with their hand...literally. Don't forget the Whoopie Pies that one Amish woman took to the local market in her horse and buggy.

My daughter and I enjoyed reading and earmarking these yummy recipes. You can feel their comforting traditions and faith as you read the recipes and the accompanying stories. Especially now, as the cooler weather starts to move in it makes you want to gather the whole family together to enjoy some of these delicious meals. The recipes aren't complicated or fancy but they are simple, fresh and tasty and that is what everyone loves. Pick up a copy and see what plain people do with simple ingredients and how they magically turn them into heaven.
