    Thanks for this Kevin, I have several books of “THE AMISH COOK ” thanks to you 🙂 have read a lot of it, but not all yet…..they are wonderful cookbooks and so much informative reading in them all….I feel like I knew Mrs. Coblentz and her entire family, and would have been honored to do so. So glad Lovena is taking over her mom’s place in her writing, enjoy reading what she writes and her recipes….for anyone who hasn’t purchased ELIZABETH COLBENTZ’S cook books, you don’t know what you are missing….there is lots of personal information in there and manyh, many great recipes, I have shared my books with my friends here and they have enjoyed them so much…..so thanks again Kevin……

    Thank you for sharing this picture!!!
    I too am just beginning to read the writings of this dear lady in “The Best of the Amish Cook.”
    What a privilege it was for you Kevin to have known her and her family.
    I could only try and picture her home in my mind but now I can see it.
    Thank you!
    And please share whatever pictures you may have of this beautiful family!!!
    Thank you for letting us have a peek into the lives of the Amish life and especially the Coblentz family!!

    Thanks for sharing this! I first started reading the column while she was writing it, so very interesting. And it’s always fun to hear tidbits of how things got started! :>

    Hi Kevin,
    I too feel as if I knew Elizabeth Coblentz and I was so sorry when she wrote about Ben’s death and then we read about her own. She was authentic and very real to us, her lucky readers.

    Hi Kevin,
    Is there some way to print just the recipes you offer without printing an entire page?
