This book is full of stories , as well as mouth watering recipes, beginning with birth and ending with life! The recipes are divided into sections under life celebrations, such as birth, childhood, marriage , and so on. Each begins with a section describing that specific part of life, in poetic form, or essay. Very thoughtful insight into the stages of life are well described. Then come a section of recipes to use on that particular occasion.
I was somewhat disappointed in the recipes. To be honest, I expected old fashioned Mennonite recipes. There were none to be seen!! This book was packed full of fashionable recipes that the in crowd would adore!! Me,..... not as much. Don't get me wrong, the recipes are fantastic, just not those that have been around for generations.
This book would be perfect for those planning one of these life events!! Your company would rave for weeks about the meal served! I did really enjoy the descriptions of life changes. They were thoughtful and made me really think about how they DO affect us as a person.
The Mennonite Girls share recipes to honor all of life. Join the girls for brunch celebrating a child's birth, campfire cooking with family, and even the more somber celebrations of a life well-lived. Filled from cover to cover with devotional reflections, personal stories, and beautiful photos, this book contains much more than recipes—it will soon become your kitchen companion for life's celebrations.

Celebrations, with it's beautiful photography, mouth watering recipes, and inspiring stories and poetry from each of the contributors is such a treasure. It's like a breath of fresh air! I love the tutorial method of "how to" put the recipes together and suggestions on what food to serve at special family celebrations. I admire the fact that all royalties will be given to a charity that provides clean water to the needy in Africa.
I look forward to trying many of the recipes and using this book as a resource for inspiration when planning those special occasions in my own life.
The lessons on hospitality, faith, love of family and sisterhood have drawn me in to the lives of these amazing women who can indeed cook! Congratulations to all on another beautiful book.
