Wanda Brunstetter has further defined the essence of ‘comfort food’ with savory recipes among the many pages of Amish Friends Farmhouse Favorites. While I traveled across the pages, there was a common theme that came to mind: ‘this is like having mom in my kitchen with me preparing wonderfully healthy meals from a time gone by.’ As I’ve often said after I finish one of Ms. Brunstetter’s books, she stays true to her pen and loyal to her audience and continues to deliver solid, enjoyable reads whether it’s a story or cookbook. Well done Ms. Brunstetter. I have been a fan for many years and always welcome the opportunity to read your next great book.
