A Wild Card post includes a brief bio of the author and a full chapter from each book toured. The reason it is called a FIRST Wild Card Tour is that you never know if the book will be fiction, non~fiction, for young, or for old...or for somewhere in between!

ELCLOUD THOUGHTS:  

This is a nice, basic, spiral-bound cookbook with a wide variety of dishes, including many main dishes that I wouldn't consider typically Amish.  The recipe instructions are easy to follow for an experienced cook, though they aren't as specific as many cookbooks.  There are a few things you won't find in this cookbook: photos, calorie information, and number of servings.  The number of servings is important to me, because I need to know if a recipe is expected to feed my family, or if I need to double (or triple) it instead.  With these recipes, I'm left guessing and trying to compare the ingredients mentally to other things I make to decide if it will be enough or not.  It's a nice cookbook, but a few more features and more specific instructions would make it an excellent cookbook.

ABOUT THE AUTHORS:


Jerry Eicher’s bestselling Amish fiction (more than 210,000 in combined sales) includes The Adams County Trilogy, the Hannah’s Heart books, and the Little Valley Series. After a traditional Amish childhood, Jerry taught for two terms in Amish and Mennonite schools in Ohio and Illinois. Since then he’s been involved in church renewal, preaching, and teaching Bible studies. Jerry lives with his wife, Tina, and their four children in Virginia.



Tina Eicher was born and married in the Amish faith, surrounded by a mother and sisters who were great Amish cooks. At fellowship meals and family gatherings, Tina’s dishes receive high praise and usually return empty. She and her husband, Jerry Eicher, author of several bestselling Amish fiction titles, are the parents of four children and live in Virginia.
