Now that Lenten diets are safely over, readers can tuck in to the gorgeous repasts featured in The Beverly Lewis Amish Heritage Cookbook: Over 200 Time-Tested Recipes. Lewis, whose inspirational novels set in Lancaster County have been Christian bestsellers, helps readers experience the place through its butter-drenched, sugary, damn-the-calories foods. Some of these are family recipes Lewis is descended from Old Order Mennonites while others are just for simple, delicious country fare. Recipes are accompanied by snippets from Lewis's novels and occasional verses from the Bible. This cookbook is, as one of Lewis's characters might say, ""wonderful-good."" (May) n
