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.
