The Amish Cooking class-The Blessing by Wanda Brunstetter



Return to the Troyer farm where, despite stressful changes occurring in their lives, Joel and Heidi once again open their Ohio home up to those seeking to learn about Amish cooking. This time a teenager helping her divorced dad cook for the family, a caterer needing new recipes, a food critic, a hunter looking to impress his buddies, a wife given the class as an unwanted gift, and a mailman lured in by the aroma of good cooking gather around Heidi s table. More than good food is exchanged, though, as friendships form, a romance blossoms, and hearts are healed."


I love Amish stories and I admire Heidi for holding her own. I can't imagine wanting something so bad and it's just withing reach. Heidi however:; is stronger than she looks and is a wonderful teacher in many ways and I believe if memory serves me correctly a matchmaker in the making. 
There are many new characters in this book. We meet Lisa, Bill the janitor, and a few others. All have come to learn how to cook. 
I think the one I most feel sorry for is Nicole who has to do everything around the house. There is no way not no how would I take on all that responsibility when there were two or three capable hands or bodies whatever the case may be. I'd be like hey I need a little help around here I can't do all this by myself. I"m a sister not a mother. 
There are a few things that I like about the story. There are a few dislikes I don't like for example when Kendra went back to live with her parents and changing her mind. Sometimes it's not always best and it usually ends up hurting the other party. 
I do believe that things work out some for the better but some not for the worst. 
I did have a little trouble connecting with the characters in this story but I have seen God's grace through the author who wrote this book..I do understand that these books are written from the heart of the authors who put these books out there for us reader and for that I do thank you!! 
Some ppl might not like this review but I totally understand! I wouldn't either!! 
I do wish that events that happen in books can happen in real life and sometimes I guess they do. 
I know I've been blessed 10 times fold and blessed especially by getting to read these wonderful books!! I always enjoy helping out my favorite authors!!!

  1. Thank you for reviewing this book. I really enjoy reading my first, "Amish Cooking Class" book. I adored, yet couldn't eat any of the recipes, tho. :-(

    Keep up the good work!
