Mennonite Girls Can Cook is a blog about recipes, hospitality, relationships, encouragement and helping the hungry—and now it's a book too!

Like the blog, Mennonite Girls Can Cook—the book—is about more than just recipes. It's about hospitality, versus entertaining; about blessing, versus impressing. It's about taking God's Bounty and co-creating the goodness from God's creation into something that can bless family and friends, and help sustain health and energy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Cookbook! Living in a very mennonite area but not being too mennonite myself, this is an awesome way to learn all those recipes I've been eating all my life. The shipping was quick too. Great buy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Cook Book This book is wonderful. The photos are maybe not top-quality but that is part of the down-home Mennonite style. The recipes included are a sampling of all that is good home-style cooking.
