~ Wanda E. Brunstetter ~

I have really enjoyed reading Wanda Brunstetter's books. She has a few different Amish series that are just wonderful!!

Wanda has a devotional out that is called, "The Simple Life" It is a special devotional that is filled with wonderful stories and recipes throughout.

Here is the most delicious recipe for potato salad that she has included in her devotional. We enjoy going to some of the Amish restaurants in Southern Ohio and they serve this delicious recipe. I have always wanted the recipe and was so excited to finally find it in her devotional. It is just fabulous!!

Overnight Potato Salad
12 potatoes, medium, boiled
12 eggs, hard-boiled
1 and1/2 cups finely chopped celery
1 onion, medium, chopped fine
Salad Dressing
Grate potatoes and eggs. Mix together with onion and celery, then add dressing and let set overnight.
(Salad Dressing Ingredients)
3 cups of mayo or Miracle Whip salad dressing ~I use Miracle Whip~
1/8 cup cider vinegar
1/2 cup milk
1 and 1/2 cup white sugar
6 Tbsp. mustard
3 tsp. salt
Combine all ingredients together in a bowl. Add desired amount to potato salad. Refrigerate any remaining dressing. She has a beautiful website!!

What a coincidence - I am in the middle of Quilter's Daughter right now! Have you read any of Lynn Austin's books (Christian but completely different content than WB's)
Happy reading!

I will have to look for these books, they look wonderful! I enjoy Amish fiction (and nonfiction!). I just finished a Beverly Lewis series.

I really enjoyed these books as well. I enjoyed them so much, that about two years ago, our family vacation was to Lancaster, PA. It was really neat seeing some of the villages mentioned in the book (like Bird In Hand).
