Mennonite Girls…

…not only can we cook but we can eat!


For the 2nd time the 10 authors from Mennonite Girls Can Cook got together in Canada last Friday. This time 9 of our husbands were able to join us.


The reason for our get together was to celebrate the release of the Mennonite Girls Can Cook Cookbook. What better way to celebrate a cookbook than to have a meal together.


What a great evening. We prayed in High and Low German then in Russian and sang Praise God from Whom All Blessings Flow together before our meal. After our meal we signed cookbooks for each other and for our publisher.


On Saturday we split up in shifts to sign books at Winks Gift Shop and Lepp Farm Market.

A huge thank you to Lovella and her great husband who treated us to a wonderful meal at their home and to all the girls who added to the meal and showered us with gifts! What fun we had with each other and meeting many people who have purchased our book!

I’m linking up at Mary’s Little Red House for Mosaic Monday.

Photobucket replaced all my photos with blurred out versions and they are holding my photos hostage until I pay them lots of money. I’m slowly going through all my posts and trying to clean them up and replacing some photos. Such a bother.

About Ellen am a wife, mother, baba (grandmother) and a loyal friend. Jesus is my King and my hope is in my future with Him.

  1. Congratulations Ellen and the Mennonite Girls! What a great accomplishment. The book is so great and I know I will enjoy my own copy once I get it. It is put together so well and was a delight to look at.
    Happy Mother’s Day! I love you.

  2. I am enjoying my copy of the MGCC cookbook! It looks like you are all having so much fun, and it’s great all 10 of you could get together for the book signings.

  3. Congratulations on the publication! Aren’t you glad you now live so much closer to the Canadian border so you can just pop over and see everyone?

  4. Thanks again for such a good time at Winks and Lepp Farm Market! You know that your recipes make me look like a good cook! So glad you girls had a fabulous time together…keep up the great work that you do!

  5. What a wonderful reason for your get together. The cookbook sounds wonderful and I would like to have one too. Wonderful photos, I hope you have a great week!

  6. What a great recap Ellen . And I think your group picture is the best of the bunch. I think Harv took 7 or 8 photos and in every one, someone is looking in a different direction! It was like taking a photo of schoolkids! But so much fun and all the while the rain poured down! It sure didn’t dampen our spirits though!

  7. Oh my. Just realized that I haven’t had breakfast yet. I don’t think I can settle for just toast now, thank you very much!

    Blessings, Debbie

  8. You know how to cook, eat, praise God, and have fun! What a joy to have you all working together for this great cause. May the sales be brisk! I’ve already purchased two and, when the budget allows, will be purchasing two more.

  9. What a wonderful occasion. I keep thinking how God directed our lives together…It was one stellar weekend for me. Thank you so much for taking the time to come out with your wonderful husband. We are so blessed.

  10. Congratulations on your new cookbook. It sounds wonderful and looks like you had a lot of fun working together on it. For many years I have used the More with Less Cookbook … I believe it is a Mennonite cookbook. Some family favorite recipes in it after all these years!

  11. Ellen…what a great re-cap of our time together! It was such a good time together…celebrating what God has done. Thanks for making the trek north…and for bringing your hubby…and the refreshments. We are sure you will be making many more of those trips across the border!

  12. I recently purchased this wonderful cookbook! Thanks for your Mother’s recipe for blinis…..this was the way my Mother made them. Some folks
    fry them in butter instead of baking them
