This book is very straightforward cookbook. It starts out with a brief history of the Pennsylvania Dutch, which is nice.
The recipes are easy to read and follow, with no annoying typos or weird breaks in the text (as is often the case in the free cookbooks). All of the measurements are modern and oven temps are given where needed. Everything is thoughtfully laid out and the sections all make sense. The one drawback is the only way to navigate is in the index, unless you want to pan through the whole book to find a particular recipe. The book would be better if the illustrations/pictures could have been included…..but for free, I honestly can’t complain!
The book covers the usual, from salads to desserts. The Chicken Corn Chowder and Scrapple recipes look really good and I can’t wait to make them. There’s even some breakfast offerings like doughnuts and Flannel Cakes (pancakes). There’s lots of desserts to choose from and even pickles and preserves.
