The Amish Family Cookbook By Jerry & Tina Eicher Giveaway!

From the home of bestselling author Jerry Eicher (more than 350,000 books sold) and his wife, Tina, comes this warm and inviting peek into an Amish kitchen, complete with....
Amish recipes:
Hannah Byler's Pecan Pie
Beat on low speed slightly or with hand beater:
 3 eggs   1/3 cup butter, melted  1 cup light corn syrup
 ½ t. salt  2/3 cup sugar
Stir in: 1 cup pecan halves.
Pour into:  1 pie crust
Bake at 375 for 40-50 minutes.
Amish proverbs:  It takes seven to cook for to make a really happy wife.
and Amish humor:
The Englisha visitor suffered through a three-hour Amish wedding service, sitting on the hard backless church bench.
 "Why does it take so long to tie the knot?" he asked afterward.
 "Well," the bishop said, stroking his long white beard. "So that it takes ‘em a lifetime to untie it."

Jerry Eicher's bestselling Amish fiction (more than 400,000 in combined sales) includes The Adams County Trilogy, the Hannah's Heart books, and the Little Valley Series. After a traditional Amish childhood, Jerry taught for two terms in Amish and Mennonite schools in Ohio and Illinois. Since then he's been involved in church renewal, preaching, and teaching Bible studies. Jerry lives with his wife, Tina, and their four children in Virginia. Tina Eicher was born and married in the Amish faith, surrounded by a mother and sisters who were great Amish cooks. At fellowship meals and family gatherings, Tina's dishes receive high praise and usually return empty. She and her husband, Jerry Eicher, author of several bestselling Amish fiction titles, are the parents of four children and live in Virginia.
I love the Amish and I love Jerry Eicher's Amish books. I  really enjoy cooking so much. So when Jerry and his wife Tina came out with an  Amish cookbook, I was so excited, I could not wait for him to get my copy to me.
No Amish fan should go another day without this cookbook in their kitchen. I love it, so many easy recipes and the ingredients we all have in our own pantry's. 
This would also make a super Christmas gift this year for that wonderful cook in your life.
