The Amish Friends Gatherings Cookbook by Wanda Brunstetter is a wonderful cookbook if you are looking for recipes to make for a large group. This cookbook contains not only recipes, but also tips, stories, advice. Some of the tips sections are; planning ahead, transporting food, and cooking at the site of the event. Each of these have a bullet point list of great advice on how to make things easier and more efficient.
The recipes contain a wonderful mix of; beverages, snacks, breads and rolls, salads, side dishes, main dishes and desserts. So no matter what type of gathering you are preparing for, Amish Friends Gatherings Cookbook will give you plenty of options to choose from. Some of my favorites are: Fried Pies, Easy Fruit Salad, Breakfast Haystack, Banana Nut Cake and Warm Bacon Dip.
One of the most interesting recipes I found in this cookbook was for Coffee Concentrate. Taking a large can of coffee and turning it into a concentrated liquid form that you can use at the event to make the coffee faster. The interesting thing that I found, is that this coffee concentrate can also be made for the home user! You can freeze small containers and enjoy it, hot or cold, at home. There is also a recipe for tea concentrate in the same section and is a huge help for big events as well as enjoying at home.
You will want to check out this cookbook for all of your future gatherings with friends for family. It helps make the food end of the event easy to handle with the help of some friends, so that you can enjoy the event as well!
