One thing that I really loved is that there is a picture for every single recipe in the book.

Susie Fishbein's recipes are simple, most less than one page long, and can be prepared without exhaustive culinary skill.
Kevin L. Nenstiel
This is well laid out, easy to follow, and has absolutely beautiful full color photos of the finished dishes.

This is my first time reading one of Susie Fishbein's cookbooks and I have to say that I really enjoyed it. It is chock full of the greatest yet simplest recipes that someone can cook. Even though I am not in the age range for this cookbook, it was well worth my viewing.

The beginning of the cookbook has a couple of different sections. The first one talks about what you need to do to get started cooking. The second one gives you different healthy eating tips along with the right equipment to use. The third one tells you about the different labels and how to read them. Beside every recipe is a label to let you know what type of recipe it is. For instance, there is V for vegetarian, GF for gluten-free, DF for dairy-free, and NF for nut-free. So as you can see, this cookbook isn't just for regular diets, it also accommodates those that have health issues, which in this day in age is a great inclusion.

Just like most cookbooks, the recipes are broken down into different sections. I will break them down for you along with one of the recipes that I liked from each section.

1) Starters - Jamaican Jerk Chicken Wings
2) Munchies - Scones
3) Soups and Salads - Lox and Avocado Salad
4) Poultry and Meat - Teriyaki Mushroom Chicken
5) Fish, Pasta, and Dairy - Pesto Salmon
6) Side Dishes - Banana Pumpkin Cornbread
7) Desserts - Chocolate Chocolate Chip Sticks
8) Parties - Gives you ideas of party themes you can have

The recipes themselves are well written and very simple. One thing that I really loved is that there is a picture for every single recipe in the book. I love this because I like to see what it is going to look like before I make it. I need some kind of idea how it is going to turn out. They are very colorful also.

I have all of Susie's cookbooks. They have literally altered the face of kosher cooking - and all for the better, of course. Many other kosher cookbooks that have come out since the original Kosher by Design (2003) show at least subtle evidence of Susie's stylistic influence, IMO.

Now she's published cookbook number seven - and I'm crazy about it. I'm clearly NOT a "teen or 20-something". At this stage in my life, I have 20-somethings. But she's taken a simpler approach to the 100 new recipes in Teens and 20-Somethings. The ingredient lists are shorter; the equipment needed is more basic. The prep times are shorter - in many cases shorter than her last cookbook - Short On Time.

The cuisine may be simpler and faster to prepare, but it's by no means simple fare. I love the international influences in this one - Thai Chicken Burgers, Mexican Pizza Empanadas, Hoisin Vegetables, Schwarma Chicken, and an amazingly tantalizing Creamy Gnocchi Salad. Oh - and I nearly forgot the Pizza Soup!

On the domestic front, there's equal diversity - from simple soups and healthy salads to such decadent wonders as Tater Tot Casserole, Southwest Rotisserie Chicken Wraps, Turkey Sliders, and what I think is a humorous breakfast hit (if you're old enough to remember the original) - Peanut Butter and Banana French Toast.

One word of warning: The desserts are rich so if you're counting calories anywhere in this cookbook, this is the section to do so! I have to recommend one dessert: the No-Bake Dulce de Leche Cheesecake. The recipe calls for a new-to-the-market kosher gelatin from Kolatin that is truly (and finally) equal to the non-kosher gelatins that we've avoided all these years.

Dessert calories aside, I have to "five star" this seventh Kosher by Design cookbook. It's just plain fun to work with.

And I do wonder - what will Susie whip up next? I hear she's already started on number 8!

We cook a lot. 5 course meals, with each course have at least 5 dishes per. And we serve 10-15 at a time - at least once a month. We have been through every Kosher by Design too. And all we can say is - BEST COOKBOOK EVER! We've already made 22 recipes and everyone was a huge hit. Accessible ingredients but new combinations we never would have thought of.

Some of the great recipes: Tuna Casserole (beyond delicious), Spicy Garlic Bread (genius), Mexi-Cali Squares (awesome), Molten Chocolate Cake (nuff said), Turkey Sliders (beyond words...restaurant worthy).

The only downside? The title. This cookbook has NOTHING to do with Teens and 20-somethings. Some other suggestions for the Kosher By Design subtitles: Best Ever; Genius Recipes; For the 21st Century; Favorites Reinvented; Accessible Gourmet.

Enjoy!

Though I'm neither Jewish nor in this book's age range, I love this lavishly illustrated, concise, spirited cookbook. I recommend it to anyone who cooks for only a few people: the unmarried, students, night shift workers. Susie Fishbein's recipes are simple, most less than one page long, and can be prepared without exhaustive culinary skill. And though her recipes keep kosher, they are global in scope and artistic in taste.

Fishbein organizes her recipes in the conventional manner: soups, snacks, main dishes, desserts, and so on. But she doesn't stop there. In addition to Meat, Dairy, and Parve for kosher eaters, she also tabs dishes for vegetarian kitchens and for food sensitivities. Since my house recently went gluten-free, her organization simplifies menu planning, freeing up time for tasty, worry-free cooking and dining. This is perfect for bachelor or childless households.

These recipes include Caribbean, Mexican, Italian, and Asian cuisines, adapted to a strict kashrut diet. Fishbein's message is that we can be observant and still be adventurous. If, like me, you're interested in kosher dining for potential health benefits, Fishbein also assures us that we can be healthy without renouncing the flavors we enjoy. Having followed several recipes, I realize that I can keep kosher without eating like a monk.

Nor does Fishbein stop with the act of cooking. Her book features entertaining tips, including complete menus and design options for themed parties. She offers handy pointers for how to streamline cooking, which I've already put to use in my habitually chaotic kitchen. This fun, good-looking, and accessible book teaches young or inexperienced cooks to prepare observant, healthy, tasty meals with a minimum of fuss and a maximum of flair.
