It is pretty much a bowl of coffee with bread in it There are a couple I might photocopy especially the bread ones It's tough finding an easy great tasting bread recipeI don't know a whole lot about the Amish but after reading this book I feel much informed Knowing what people eat how they feel about food and some intimate stories about their personal lives is much easier to read and leaves me feeling like I know about these people than I would if I had read a bland textbook on the subject
