Book Review : The Pie Lady

Happy National Pie Day ! Don’t miss this book filled with heartwarming stories and great recipes from The Pie Lady – Coming April 23rd.

What is a Pie Lady moment? For one family, it s breakfast on the patio. For another, it s Mom serving up creamy chicken and noodles. These are Pie Lady moments: times of goodness and glamour in the middle of ordinary days. In The Pie Lady, Mennonite homemaker Greta Isaac ushers readers into the kitchens of Velda, Shyla, and other Pie Ladies as they whip up confections and concoctions that please the mouth and nourish the soul. Fans of Ruth Reichl, Sherry Gore, and Ree Drummond will love Isaacs intimate, delectable writing. Home cooks will love the recipes that appear in each chapter. Maybe you drop grapefruit slices in a glass of water. Maybe you brown the gravy and salt it from eighteen inches up. (Forget for now the sink full of dishes.) Each cook has her own Pie Lady moments. Each has a story to tell. Hear straight from Amish and Mennonite people themselves as they write about their daily lives and deeply rooted faith in the Plainspoken series from Herald Press.

Net Galley book review:

What a beautiful book – After living many year in Indiana and Michigan around Amish and Mennonite people. I learned a lot of wonderful recipes and ate a lot of great food from these people. And yes some life lessons – how to slow down and appreciate the simple things in life in these busy days. This book is filled with mouth watering recipes and meaningful stories that make the book come alive with love and heart.

And This book went straight to my heart- and made it a must buy gift for my Mom for Mothers Day . She has always cooked from her heart and love sharing her baked goods with others as well as her faith. She too is a Pie Lady. Thanks Lisa ( Releasing April 23rd )
