The Honeybee Sisters Cookbook

(A book in the Honeybee Sisters series)
A collection of stories by

A collection of delicious honey recipes from the Honeybee Sisters book series, featuring quotes and recipes from Sweet as Honey, A Bee in her Bonnet, and Like a Bee to Honey--Amish romances by Jennifer Beckstrand.

Lily, Poppy, and Rose Christner, known as the Honeybee Sisters in their Amish community, are smart, inseparable, and all grown up. Orphaned when they were very young, the girls were raised by their eccentric Aunt Bitsy, who doesn't behave like a proper Amish spinster. The Honeybee Sisters have blossomed into rare beauties, and the boys in the community have begun to take notice. But Aunt Bitsy is determined to scare off all comers with her brusque manner and her handy shotgun. None but the most worthy will make it past Bitsy's defenses. It's going to be a rowdy and romantic summer--harvesting honey from their many beehives and fighting off the boys right and left.

Note from Aunt Bitsy When my girls told me they wanted to write a cookbook, I wasn't too keen on the idea. Food attracts boys like honey attracts bees. I warned them that if they didn't want the boys hanging around the house, they shouldn't make the cakes and pies and cookies that are sure to bring them running. My nieces didn't seem to be alarmed about the prospect of boys all over the place, so I suppose they'll have to learn the hard way.

My problem is that smart, feisty, pretty girls attract boys even better than honey does. So even if my girls stopped cooking altogether, I have a sneaking suspicion that the boys would still find excuses to come over.

Some of the recipes in this book, like Honey Glazed Pretzels and Whole Wheat Bread, are very traditional Amish dishes. Others, like Salmon Tacos and Coconut Lime Chicken, are less traditional but still wunderbarr. I lived as an Englischer for twenty years before coming back to the Amish to raise my three nieces, and as a dental hygienist, I collected a lot of recipes.

Here's my final warning: Boys are like stray cats. If you feed them, they'll keep coming back. Buy this cookbook at your own risk.
