Amish Family Recipes

Amish Family Recipes

Welcome to thirty-one days of my Amish family’s favorite recipes! Last October I joined The Nester’s blogging challenge, and shared stories from my Amish family. The journey was such a special experience that I’ve decided to do something similar this year.

Food is an integral part of the Amish-Mennonite Community. Each of the recipes I’m blogging are from a cookbook frequently used in my Grandmother’s, Mother’s and now my family kitchen, called The Mennonite Community Cookbook. This timeless resource was first published in 1950, and is still widely used today. I’m excited for this opportunity to share some of our favorite family recipes from this book, with my daughters – and with you, my readers.

Thank you for visiting my blog, I hope to see you here again soon!
