    As we mature, our likes and dislikes change somewhat. I find myself reading more cookbooks so I’m always on the lookout for new and unique ones.A FARMER’S DAUGHTER: RECIPES FROM A MENNONITE KITCHEN by Dawn Stoltzfus caught my eye for a number of reasons. First and foremost, it contains delicious and wholesome recipes that are easy to prepare. More on those in a minute.The background of the author was interesting. Stoltzfus was raised on a Mennonite dairy farm. Her family enjoyed fresh home-grown ingredients for the dishes her mother prepared. Stoltzfus went on to start her own deli and catering service using recipes she learned growing up.Nestled among the more than 200 recipes are charming stories from the author’s Mennonite upbringing. She also includes tips and tricks for making meal planning easier, along with ideas that will add flair when serving. Almost every recipe comes with a bit of history how the dish came into her family or how the dish can or did relate to an inspiring experience.The recipes are divided into chapters including: Appetizers, Dips, and Beverages; Breakfast and Breads; Spring Salads and Dressings; Summer Sandwiches and Winter Soups; Garden Fresh Veggies, Comfort Food, and Sides; Main Entrees; Desserts; Cookies, Cakes, and Bars; and Simple Do-It-Yourself Recipes. Among one of the simple dishes I discovered a unique way to make the ever popular comfort food, Mac and Cheese. While my version usually comes from a box, I decided to be a bit different and give Creamy Baked Macaroni and Cheese a try. It’s a yummy change from the box and is a new favorite at our house. It’s quick and easy to prepare. But if you’re pressed for time after a long day at work, there’s also a version that can be prepared in a slow cooker so it’s waiting on you when you get home. Here’s the oven version I tried:3 Tbsp. salted butter2 ½ cups macaroni, uncooked1 tsp. salt¼ tsp. pepper½-¾ cup American cheese, diced1 cup Monterey Jack or cheddar cheese, shredded1 egg, slightly beaten4 cups milkPreheat oven to 325°F. Melt butter and pour over macaroni in baking dish, tossing to coat. Add salt, pepper, cheese, and egg. Stir in milk. Bake uncovered for 90 minutes. Do not stir while baking. This comes out of the oven golden brown and creamy. Serves 4-5.I used ¾ cup American cheese and cheddar instead of Monterey Jack. It was delicious with a crispy brown topping. The slow cooker version is a bit different and takes about 4 hours to cook. However, it would be a welcome sight waiting for you to enjoy after a long day at work or shopping.In her introduction, Stoltzfus talks about how she came to realize food has a way of bringing people together. That caused me to reflect on how food is a staple part of our lives, especially in the South. Aside from the fact we need food to live, we also use food to celebrate happy occasions, share food when a loved one is sick or passes away, enjoy a friend’s company or renew a friendship over food, and begin new relationships while sharing a meal (some even end relationships this way).A FARMER’S DAUGHTER: RECIPES FROM A MENNONITE KITCHEN is a charming and useful cookbook that will become a favorite among your collection. It will also make a delightful gift to novice and expert cooks alike. This cookbook contains no photographs to tempt you with, but the content more than makes up for the lack of artwork.Author Dawn Stoltzfus’ website is October 2012 at your favorite bookseller from Revell, a division of Baker Publishing Group.FTC Full Disclosure - I requested this book and it was sent to me by the publisher in hopes I would review it. However, receiving the complimentary copy did not influence my review.

    A Farmer's DaughterRecipes from a Mennonite KitchenBy Dawn StoltzfusDawn Stoltzfus, drawing on her upbringing, has written a tastefully delicious cookbook. As the daughter of a Mennonite farmer/pastor Dawn grew-up with fresh, wholesome food and she shares her wealth of knowledge in A Farmer's Daughter.A Farmer's Daughter offers a well-rounded assortment of recipes, so there is sure to be something to please everyone. The cookbook is broken down into nine sections: 1) Appetizers, Dips, and Beverages; 2) Breakfast and Breads; 3) Spring Salads and Dressings; 4) Summer Sandwiches and Winter Soups; 5) Garden Fresh Veggies, Comfort Food, and Sides; 6) Main Entrees; 7) Desserts; 8) Cookies, Cakes, and Bars; 9) Simple Do-It-Yourself Recipes.Throughout there are little tidbits such as how to present your food, make a party out of the preparation, or even added a special touch to make the recipe your own. There are a few short remembrances of how a recipe can into being or why it was and is a family favorite.The recipes that I have tried have been easy and straightforward I love the Herb Focaccia Bread, but the recipe that I am sharing in this review is found on page 53 the French Puff Cinnamon Muffins. Dawn's description is as follows "These melt in your mouth. They're like donuts - without being fried. And so simple to make! Yeah!" Indeed these bite size muffins are easy to make, and when I offered them to my family the first comment made was "This are kind of like donuts. What are they?" So my taste-testers agreed that the donut description was accurate.Now on to the most important part the recipe.Ingredients are as follows:Muffin batter1/2 cup white or raw sugar1/4 cup salted butter, softened1/4 tsp. cinnamon1/2 cup milk1 tsp. baking powder1 cup flourCinnamon mixture1/4 cup salted butter1/2 cup white or raw sugar1 tsp. cinnamonPreheat oven to 375*F. Grease 24 mini muffin cups. Mix sugar, butter, and cinnamon in a bowl. Stir in milk, and then mix in baking powder and flour until combined. Do not overmix. Fill prepared mini muffin cups about half full and bake until lightly golden, 15-20 minutes.While muffins are baking, prepare the cinnamon mixture by melting butter. In a separate bowl, mix together sugar and cinnamon. When muffins are done, let cool slightly and remove from their cups, then dip each muffin completely in melted butter and roll in sugar-cinnamon mixture. Yields 18-20 mini muffins.Serve warm!* When I used this recipe I actually made 24 mini muffins, rather than the 18-20.In the Simple Do-it-yourself Recipes there are recipes to create your own mixes for pancakes, vanilla pudding, taco seasoning, Christmas potpourri, and laundry soap. This is an interesting, tasty, and enjoyable book. Perfect for anyone looking for simple yet delicious recipes.I was provided a copy of The Farmer's Daughter by the publisher for the purpose of this review and all opinions expressed are my own. Available October 2012 at your favorite bookseller from Revell, a division of Baker Publishing Group.

    Dawn Stoltzfus shares the recipes from her recipe box from her days growing up on a Mennonite farm as well as being a restaurant owner. She also includes little stories through out the book that tell a little more about her life. The recipes are simple and hearty.I've never reviewed a cookbook before. I love cookbooks, though I don't use them as often as I should. I'm not saying that I can't cook, because when I take the time, I can. Most of my cooking is baking. There are several recipes in this book that I am looking forward to trying - Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls and Cinnamon Rolls for example. I have tried a couple of the recipes - Baked Rosemary Chicken and Creamy Hot Cocca.Here's what I thought about the cookbook in general. Organization - well put together. Sections are easily divided. There was even a simple section that includes things like making a dishwasher rinse agent and laundry soap that I found very helpful. Pictures - there weren't any. I like to see a picture to know what the finished product is supposed to look like. Index - the index isn't broken down by ingredients, but more by title. I think it could have been broken down by subject or even ingredient to be more helpful. Recipes - written in very simple and easy to understand steps. For a non-cooker, that's great. Overall, I'm glad to have tried the recipes in the cookbook and I will be using more. This is definitely one cookbook I'll keep!Rating - 4 starsI received this book for free from the publisher, Revell Books for the purpose of reviewing. My thoughts and opinions are my own.Find Farmer's Daughter at your local bookstore in October 2012 from Revell Books, a division of Baker Publishing Group. As part of my review, I am allowed to include one recipe. I am including the Baked Rosemary Chicken.Baked Rosemary Chicken1 (3-5 lb) whole roaster chicken1 small onion (I used yellow)1 apple (I used a Gala)2 stalks celery1/2 cup salted butter (1 stick)1/4 c fresh rosemary (pull the leaves off of the twigs first) OR 2 Tbs dried rosemary8 garlic cloves, peeled, sliced thin or minced1 Tbs seasoned salt1/2 tsp fresh cracked pepper1/2 tsp smoked paprika1/2 cup waterPreheat oven to 275 degrees F. Place chicken in baking dish. Chop onion, apple, and celery into large pieces and stuff inside the chicken cavity. Melt butter in a small saucepan, add rosemary, garlic, seasoned salt, pepper, and paprika. Heat through, then remove from heat and pour over top of chicken. Rinse sauce pan with 1/2 cup water and pour water into baking dish. Cover dish with foil and bake 3-3 1/2 hours. Serves 5-6.

    I enjoy cookbooks, and this one does not disappoint. Dawn Stoltzfus was raised on a Mennonite farm, and you can tell by the recipes these are great wholesome food.The only criticism I have is there are very few picture. Kind of like seeing what things are supposed to look like.I loved her Author's note in the back and I so agree with her. At one time in my life we had everything on the table off our farm, except the condiments. You get a real feeling of accomplishment doing that!I also loved her simple..Do It Yourself Recipes, with hint on making your own Sun Dried Tomatoes, Laundry Soap, Window Cleaner etc.There is a great index included, making it easy to find that mouth watering recipe you found, easily!This book is a real keeper, and I recommend it to add to your collections.Yum!I received this book through the Publisher Revell and their Blogger Tour, and was not required to give a positive review.

    Dawn grew up Mennonite on a farm in Ohio. Through her time growing up she always had the desire to cook and serve her family through good food. Once she left home she eventually was led to open a restaurant in Washington DC, named The Farmer's Wife, after her own mother. The recipes that are in this book come from her childhood as well as the restaurant.Seasoned with stories associated with the recipes and helpful hints, this cookbook would be a lovely addition to any kitchen. Hearty, fulfilling foods to serve your family in love!I have heard so many people talking about these Pumpkin Lattes so I thought I would try out the recipe in the Farmer's Daughter cookbook on page 24. The lattes looked wonderful, easy to make, and so much cheaper than I hear people spending on one from a coffee shop. I have decided that I am not one who enjoys drinking pumpkin flavored drinks. It was nothing to do with this recipe, it just seemed to me that pumpkin has no place in coffee... But I love pumpkin so what next..I decided to try the recipe for Pumpkin Bars with Cinnamon Cream. I am in a pumpkin mood with all of this nice cool weather!!These bars were so tasty!! A great fit for the pumpkin I loaded up on at the grocery last week (in case we have a shortage in pumpkin of course!).The only ingrediend besides pumpkin I don't typically have on hand is cream cheese so once I picked that up it was basic ingredients from there. It is made on a Jelly Roll pan and smothered with cream cheese frosting, what isn't to love! Like Dawn mentions in her book, it is such a blessing to bring happiness to your family through good foods. Now since I live in a Mennonite Community I must add that a lot of these recipes seemed to be scaled down for your typical American family in size. Of the friends I know, they would have to at least double most of them as I do for my larger family. So don't think you are getting recipes that will feed droves, they are scaled down!This cookbook will help you try out some of those nice, home cooked recipes with the basic ingredients you have on hand!!

    I was happy to review "A Farmer’s Daughter: Recipes from a Mennonite Kitchen." I can’t say I really enjoy cooking, but with a family of five I do quite a bit of it. It’s always fun to try new recipes, and I always think of Amish/Mennonite cooking as being a delicious treat.Dawn Stoltzfus is the daughter of a farmer (I assume you figured that out) who was also a Mennonite pastor. Many of her recipes are “Mennonite,” but quite a few are not. All look good, however. Or perhaps I should say all sound good, since the book does not have photos. It seems strange to me to put out a cookbook without pictures, but I suppose in this day of shrinking budgets, that was perhaps a necessity.Dawn includes commentary with each recipe, and these are fun to read: tidbits about Mennonite life, or how she tweaks a recipe, or other things that help you feel you’re having a conversation with her. She comes across as down-to-earth and friendly. I had a small issue with the way each of these little blurbs was captioned with “And another thing … And another thing …” This struck me as pretty annoying after a while, but maybe that’s just me :) .In addition to the typical desserts, entrees, and appetizers, the book has a section with simple DIY recipes, which I think may end up being my favorite part of the book: recipes for taco seasoning, cream soups, pancake mix, chocolate syrup — I’m anxious to try some of these!This week, I made the Ginger Honey Salmon (page 153). I’d say it was average, but honestly how much can one say about fish that was simply marinated in sauce?I also made Layered Meatless Mexican Casserole (page 157). I feared its potential as one of those recipes that is too healthy to taste good (it contains rice, salsa, corn, onion, refried beans, spinach — I even threw in an eggplant — but it was delicious!I think that this book would make a fun Christmas gift for someone who enjoys cooking (or someone who, like me, is forced into it).Thanks to Revell for a review copy. A Farmer’s Daughter is available October 2012.

    My Thoughts On This BookThis cookbook is written by Dawn Stoltzfus, who grew up on a Mennonite farm and is now sharing some of the family recipes with her readers. It is chunked full of really good sounding recipes. I enjoyed going through this book many times reading the recipes. The thing I enjoyed most about this cookbook though is the information about Dawn’s family that she has shared at the beginning of each chapter, and throughout the book. This is more than just a great cookbook, it is an insight into the Stoltzfus family and they way the grew up, as well as their family values. I appreciate the willingness of the author to share this with me, and the rest of the world who purchases her book.This is such a wonderful cookbook and I hope you will pick up your copy soon. Don’t forget the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays coming up. I’ve already picked out a few recipes I am going to try. I also found a wonderful peach cobbler recipe that I substituted apples and tried and it was yummy. And there is an apple and pecan salad in there that is wonderful as well! Grab your copy today and enjoy this wonderful family history.Available October 2012 at your favorite bookseller from Revell, a division of Baker Publishing Group.I received this book from Revell Publishers. I was not required or expected to write a positive review. The opinions in this review are my own.ABOUT THE AUTHORDawn Stoltzfus is a wife, a mother of two sweet little boys, and a lover of anything creative. She started and ran The Farmer’s Wife Market until 2008 when she sold it in order to stay at home to raise her family. She loves to cook, for one or three hundred, and sees cooking and entertaining as an opportunity to “be Jesus to people” and serve them out of love and joy rather than out of a sense of obligation. Her love for cooking was inspired by her mother and developed as she cooked for her family of six on their active, working dairy farm in Ohio.

    Although I am not a huge fan of cooking, I love getting new cookbooks. I like to be able to try new meals in order to make sure that my family doesn't get in a rut, especially at dinnertime.I was drawn to this book because of its references to simple, wholesome recipes made with fresh ingredients. And this is exactly what I found in this cookbook.I marked many, many recipes in this book to try. (I always go through the 'meal' part of the book marking recipes, and my husbad goes through the desserts!) Since receiving this book, we have tried three of the recipes – two dinnertime meals and one dessert. Our favorite recipe by far of the ones we tried was the Simple Chicken Cordon Bleu. It was so easy to prepare, and I didn’t have to make a special trip to the store to make it. This dish was basic but with a little added flair to make it a bit more special. My husband really liked it.The other ‘meal’ recipe we tried was the Slow Cooker Lasagna, and it was good, too. (I think I would leave out the extra salt next time). The dessert we tried was the Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Oatmeal Bars. They were really good right from the oven, but by the next day, they had gotten a bit hard and crumbly, making them difficult to eat. This is a nice cookbook that has some satisfying recipes, and we look forward to trying even more of them.I am allowed to include one recipe from the book in my post, so I will choose the Simple Chicken Cordon Bleu.

Now she opened her recipe box, and sharing them with us. Recipes range from appetizers to desserts and everything in between. Some of them sounded really good. I made Chicken and Herbed Dumplings (with some modifications) for Sunday dinner (needed more salt, but otherwise, it went over well), and have Chicken, Mushroom, and Wild Rice Soup on the menu, as well as Black Bean Soup, and Slow Cooker Beef Tips with Mushrooms and Onions for later this week. I enjoy trying new foods, and since the ingredients are mostly all common they are things that the average cook will have on hand to fix a meal without running to the grocery store.

    MY REVIEW:I am not normally drawn to cookbooks. In fact I chose to review this because I figured I could use it for a gift when I was done. However, I'm not sure I'm going to let it go now! (If you get this as a gift from me...consider yourself very blessed. *giggle*)I like this cookbook because it's full of practical, homemade, every-day recipes. Page after page held another dish I wanted to make! The opening comments on each recipe and clear directions are another thing that I really appreciated about this cookbook. I felt like I was making a friend while cooking supper for my family. And so many of the recipes involved ingredients that I had on hand...THAT is a good cookbook!In preparing for the review I made Oatmeal Wheat Dinner Rolls from page 69. Not only were they easy to make, but tasted good and were healthy, too! (Okay, so as healthy as bread can be!)This is a cookbook even busy moms are going to enjoy!

    The recipes in "The Farmer's Daughter" are divided into 9 chapters including a chapter devoted to breakfast and breads recipes, one for desserts and one for summer sandwiches and winter soups.Along with the recipes are dozens of charming stories Dawn shares from growing up in a Mennonite community, cooking in the kitchen and what she has learned throughout the years. Dawn's love for cooking and for her family is absolutely evident throughout this collection and for that reason, among loving the many recipes, I found to be refreshingly delightful!There is an excellent variety of recipes shared in this book, I cannot wait to try to many of them! I am pleased to add this book to my cookbook collection, and can see it being used again and again and again! I highly recommend it for yours too!

    Since I have celiac disease, I rarely pick up a mainstream cookbook, but A Farmer’s Daughter was irresistible. You see, it’s about real, yummy, please-your-family food. What else would a Mennonite dairy farmer’s daughter (and former owner of The Farmer’s Wife market) write about?A Farmer’s Daughter: Recipes from a Mennonite Kitchen is full of the recipes and cheerful thoughts of a woman whose love language is to her family and friends is delicious homemade food. Each recipe is clearly explained, and many contain Dawn’s memories of the recipe as well as extra hints and tips. Although some of the recipes are time consuming, by far the majority are perfect for busy cooks.You can read the rest of my review here:

    Good and plentyI thought that this book would contain good, healthy, and nutritious recipes for my family. I have always loved to cook and I was looking for a few new ideas. Dawn isn't afraid to add some convenience foods to make her recipes a bit easier. I like the way she uses her recipes to bring the nominees of family together. After all, who do we cook for except for those we love? Her basics are great and some innovations and aides are time saving and fun. I would give this book to a newly married couple as a wedding present, or a gift for a bridal party. The old saying that "the way to a man's heart is through his stomach" isn't far from the truth. Good food, good ideas, good nutrition and a touch of good sense make this a book to return to over and over again.

    This is just a great cookbook. Most, not all, recipes show serving sizes and all require every day ingredients you probably have on hand. I love the little anecdotes and the "And Another Thing...And Another Thing" notes at the end of many recipes where she shares additional hints or suggestions about a particular recipe.There is a great section in the back about Do-It-Yourself recipes.She makes French Toast like I do, with cinnamon and vanilla. So much better than plain french toast!Available October 2012 at your favorite bookseller from Revell, a division of Baker Publishing Group.

    Lots of good recipes here if you love to cook. There's nothing here though that I'd consider "easy" for someone who doesn't cook much. I picked one or two recipes to try and ended up spending quite a bit of money just to buy ingredients. Perhaps if you have a fully stocked larder this wouldn't be an issue.

    Nice collection of recipesThis not just a cookbook. There are stories woven throughout. The book is written in a homey style. I can just picture myself sitting at the table with a cup of coffee chatting with the author. I have not tried any recipes yet but there are several I will try soon. One is the Baked eggs .

    In our home, we have a love for cooking, both simple and the not so simple, but when we're looking for something new to make, often or not, it has to be something that isn't too exotic (unless its a really special occasion) and something that, at least a good portion, of the family would enjoy.With, "A Farmer's Daughter: Recipes from a Mennonite Kitchen", I enjoyed the mix of different spins on everyday comfort food and new ways of making familiar dishes such as: Campfire Potatoes, Moroccan Chicken Kebabs, Ginger and Honey Salmon, along with new spins on desserts such as Butterscotch Cookies, and Pumpkin Maple Whoopie Pies.What makes a good cook book? Ease of use, instructions that speak plainly to a wide variety of cooks in the kitchen,ingredients that are appropriate for the type of cookbook being written, with, "A Farmer's Daughter: Recipes from a Mennonite Kitchen",the cook will find a simple, down home, easy to read cookbook, with ingredients, that for many, can already be found in the kitchen or canned if you are a canner.I enjoy the practicality of the cookbook. It had recipes that I know I will be using over and over, which is sometimes the trouble with owning cookbooks. There maybe one or two I could use but the rest, either I'm unsure of, pretty sure no one will care for, or the ingredients weren't attainable.However, "A Farmer's Daughter: Recipes from a Mennonite Kitchen", offers recipes that have enough of a variety that no matter what the situation, something can be found for, just about any occasion and the personal anecdotes and quotes, brought a very down home touch to the cookbook.The list of ingredients can be found at any grocery store and the directions are simple, precise and makes just enough, not too little or too much, but the right amount for any family.The only drawbacks that I could find was that there were no pictures of the dishes that were made, but in all honesty, that is a small drawback, compared to the overall quality of the cookbook that is sure to be a family favorite in any home.This book was given to me via Revell a division of Baker Publishing Group in exchange for my personal opinion

    I got this free on Kindle. It came just when I was really struggling with food. I've tried 10+ recipes. Only once have I encountered an ingredient that I can't get. Many of the recipes are standard just without prepared ingredients. Other recipes are amazing and have become a staple to our diet. I love how she gives options for the slow cooker or the stove top. I also enjoy her comments. I think she would be a great person to get to know.
