An Amish Christmas Kitchen is a wonderful collection of 3 novellas written by bestselling Amish fiction writers to get your holiday season off to a special start. The three featured authors are Leslie Gould, Jan Drexler and Kate Lloyd. Each of these authors created a beautiful Christmas story that centered around a kitchen theme and to me the best possible ad-on with each novella is a recipe for you to make that comes straight out of the story.

She and her sister Salome have been a team for this annual event for a while and Noelle has always done the behind the scenes part of the actual baking and Salome was the person that interacted with customers and made the in person sales. But this year, Salome is injured and Noelle finds that she must do both jobs, baking and selling despite her shyness. To make matters even harder at the Christmas Market, her old beau Jesse King has returned, and he will also be at the market so she can no longer avoid seeing him.
