Review:

The Mennonite Disaster Service volunteers who helped build our Katrina Cottage in Pass Christian, Mississippi, introduced us to Esther Shank, and when she sent us her cookbook, we were pleasantly surprised. Containing more than 1,000 recipes she collected and perfected over 25 years, it's an everything-and-then-some volume on the level of The Joy of Cooking—with a country slant. Next to recipes for classic casseroles, salads, and cookies are instructions for pasteurizing milk, cleaning fish, and plucking chickens. A section at the end also gives 'non-food recipes,' such as how to make your own soap or houseplant fertilizer and tips for removing all kinds of stains. It's a bible for old-fashioned self-sufficiency.

-- Jason Horn



Did you ever wish you could find the perfect cookbook for the bride to be who has a hard time boiling water? Mennonite Country-Style Recipes is a very comprehensive cookbook, which gives the cook not only practical recipes, but many ideas and helpful hints besides. --Prairie Overcomer

Warm in style, easy to use in organization and a gold mine of information. In addition to more than 1,100 recipes, Mrs. Shenk has packed the 680-page book with definitions, charts, nutrition guidelines, tables, tips, budget hints, and how-to diagrams she collected for 25 years as a Harrisonburg homemaker and mother of three daughters. --Richmond News
