I love this cookbook, it is well written and has many recipes I am interested in trying out. I love Pennsylvania food and thought I would try it out. It is a winner! I collect cookbooks and this is a great addition. Prompt delivery in great condition. Amazon came through again.

HASH(0xa25b5378) out of 5 stars Down-home type recipes, but not a true representation of Pennsylvania recipes Jan. 12 2016
By A Reader from PA - Published on
Format: Plastic Comb
I bought this many years ago, not long after it first came out. The majority of the recipes here are basic down-home cooking recipes. Think of the types of recipes you would see in a Taste of Home magazine or cookbook, and you pretty much have 'seen' this cookbook.

I realize Gwen and Barbara gather regional cookbooks to create these state cookbooks, but to me, many of the traditional "Pennsylvania recipes" I grew up with and knew about, are not here. Not one recipe for pierogies. Not one recipe for stuffed cabbages. Not one recipe for apple butter. No recipes for cocktail weiners or crockpot meatballs, or corn pudding or haluski or many others that are staples and you see everywhere in Pennsylvania. And I have lived East, North, South, and Western Pennsylvania, so I know what I am talking about!

If you want a basic down-home cookbook, this might be for you. But if you want a true representation of Pennsylvania cooking, this is not it. If you are nostalgic for recipes you might have grown up with as a Pennsylvanian, you will probably be disappointed in this.

Many recipes are kind of repetitive. Apple recipes out the wazoo! Many apple recipes (and other recipes) are pretty much the same, just different titles/names.

Also if you like and/or need pictures of recipes, this book definitely is not for you. It is just merely page after page of basic recipes printed in the same basic font. An experienced cook would find this boring and a new cook would probably want a few pictures or more instructions.

I would have dropped this down to 2 stars but it is a decent enough cookbook if you want basic home-cooking type of recipes.
But for a real compilation of Pennsylvania recipes, this is not it. There are some, but not many. And most are recipes that are just very basic home-cooking type of recipes that can be found in any church cookbook in any state. Not a complete representation of Pennsylvania fare. And this is from someone who have grown up and lived her almost 50 years in Pennsylvania.

As I said, this is a decent collection of down-home recipes, but not a true collection of what Pennsylvania cooks and eats. Some recipes are here, but not enough in my opinion to be called a "Pennsylvania" cookbook. A mere handful of recipes are featured, but by no means a true representation of what Pennsylvanians cook on the regular.

A better representation is one of the Three Rivers cookbooks, preferably Volume I. Classic and timeless and recipes that Pennsylvanians have grown up with and been making for years.

HASH(0xa25b56cc) out of 5 stars Scrapple April 15 2014

This book includes a scrapple recipe, which PA people will tell you is a big deal for some reason. If someone you know likes that stuff, get this book.
