Review

"Think of [Jamie Geller] as a kosher Rachael Ray." --Ellen Kanner, Miami Herald

About the Author

Jamie Geller left a fast-track career as a New York City TV producer to embark on the frazzled-track career of Jewish wife and mother. Her first cookbook, Quick & Kosher: Recipes From The Bride Who Knew Nothing, was an instant success and put Jamie on a trajectory to culinary stardom. She gives cooking demos all over the USA and is regularly featured online, in print, and on radio and TV.

When she joined the dynamic Kosher.com team as Chief Marketing Officer, Jamie became the engaging spokesperson for the world's largest online supermarket and the host/producer of the popular Internet cooking show Quick & Kosher with Jamie Geller.


More About the Author

Known as the "Queen of Kosher" (CBS) and the "Jewish Rachael Ray" (New York Times), JAMIE GELLER is the founder and chief creative officer of the Kosher Media Network, publisher of the award-winning Joy of Kosher with Jamie Geller magazine and JoyofKosher.com. She is also host of the Joy of Kosher with Jamie Geller cooking special on PBS and Create and the Joy of Israel with Jamie Geller food and travel show on JLTV and the author of the bestselling Quick & Kosher cookbook series. She has appeared on ABC, NBC, FOX, CBS and Martha Stewart Living Radio, and been featured in Forbes, Daily News (New York and Los Angeles), Washington Post, Miami Herald, and Chicago Tribune among many others. She and her husband recently moved to Israel, where their five children give her plenty of reasons to get out of the kitchen--fast.

Terrific recipes and love that they show pics..very uptodate food.

Recipes in this book cover total preparation time from ingredients to full served meals and focus on meals that can be done in just 20, 40 or 60 minutes.
Midwest Book Review
What struck me as I initially paged through the book was that there were a lot of recipes that I knew the kids would enjoy as much as us adults.

In her new cookbook, "Quick & Kosher Meals in Minutes", Jamie Geller has made life in the kitchen a breeze. Not only do we have new quick recipes, they come replete with side dishes as well. An entire meal for one's family is right there on the page. No more scurrying about to figure out how to complete all parts of a meal that will be tasty to all members of the family. In addition to the yummy recipes is Jamie's ever enjoyable narrative that helps lighten up anyone's mood and outlook. Bravo chef Jamie!

I love the joy of kosher blog, and heard such great reveiws about this book, I was a little dissapointed. The cookbook is divided by prep time, rather than food type, so if you want to quickly find a salad recipe, this is not the right cookbook. also, no division of dairy or meat, and way too many of the recipes use milk, rather than offering a pareve alternative. But what really bothered me, is that so many of the recipes use readay made things like sauces, i dont need a cookbook to tell me to pour a bottle of ready made sauce of chicken, or to take a burger add a bun and make a sandwich. I live overseas, and some of these things don't exsist by us. Also, in this day and age of health awarness, its funny that most of the recipes recipes call for soup mix and butter - not the healthiest items. as for quick 60 minute recipes are not what i call quick. I did like the humor, and pictures and the explanations - those were good, its a shame about the rest. there are many better cookbooks out there.

Wow! Quick and Kosher Meals in Minutes is a cookbook I can honestly say that I am excited to use. Usually I pull out a cookbook out of necessity and not excitement but wow, Jamie's cookbook is beautiful, well-organized, funny and forgiving. If you have young children at home like myself and Jamie, you'll understand and appreciate how a cookbook that is forgiving can make a Mom feel at ease and relieved in her own kitchen (sigh). Jewishlifeorganized.com gives Quick and Kosher Meals in Minutes 5 stars!

I fell in love with Jamie's first cookbook. I loved how all her recipes used simple ingredients and were quick to prepare. Therefore, I was very excited to hear that she was coming out with a second cookbook.

When I took a look at the book I noticed that, her new book contains recipes that are more sophisticated and less child friendly. Due to the format of the book there were also fewer dessert options.

It is very obvious that Jamie is no longer the Bride Who Knew Nothing. Her cooking style has evolved from very simple to simple and sophisticated. Depending on your cooking style it can be a good thing or not.

Her quick and kosher philosophy has remained the same, if it's ready made don't do it yourself. Jamie relies on prepared sauces and spice mixes.

This is the second recipe book in Jamie Geller's portfolio. I will apologize in advance for any gushing I do - her writing style, her honesty, her humour, her family stories, the hint of cooking aromas wafting around - they just totally pull me in. I can hear her voice in my head as I read her introductions and comments. When I first cracked open the book to read I was not in the best of moods, but by the time I had finished reading the introduction there was a huge grin on my face. Jamie's easy writing style just resonates with the reader.

We were so excited when her book arrived at the house. My boys think I am now this huge cookbook expert. Nah, just an Ima who loves to cook and feed her family and is always looking for new recipes. When I told them that I had actually met Jamie, they were in awe. (Jamie - you have a few fans over here!)

What struck me as I initially paged through the book was that there were a lot of recipes that I knew the kids would enjoy as much as us adults. There are many books out there that you just know the kids are not going to even try most of the dishes because they look different, are unpronounceable, or, horror of horrors, don't contain meat or potatoes!!

What I love about this book is that it was written with the busy mom in mind. We don't all have six hours to prepare a gourmet supper, but we want to feed our families well, and healthfully. There is a 20 minute section, a 40 minute section, and a 60 minute section and none of the recipes are complicated. Jamie is a very busy mom herself - she knows firsthand that we moms don't have time for complicated. (Truth be told, her kids are little - how she even has time to cook AND write a book I don't know!! I take my (chef's) hat off to her).

As I a librarian, I was planning on purchasing this for our synagogue library. Jamie's first book, with cute stories and simple recipes, has been a big hit with our patrons, but this...sorry Jamie, but it's a bust! I bought a personal copy, and then decided not to spend the libary's money on this one. Incredibly disappointing!

First off, the whole book is like one big ad for kosher.com and the brands they carry....Gefen brand this, Les Petites Fromages that...and so on and so forth.

Some of the "recipes" are a bit umm, elementary? For example, there is a "recipe" for grilled vegetable sandwiches. The ingredients are bread and "grilled vegetables from kosher.com or your local take-out store." There are a few other examples: Canned peaches, store bought vanilla ice cream, sprinkled with granola. I don't really need to spend upwards from $20 for such "recipes" that many people can think up of on their own.

Jamie's chatty style was cute in the first book, annoying in this one. I don't care that Jamie can't find her blackberry at the bottom of the diaper bag or the theme she chose when remodeling her kitchen.

Finally, I think the title is misleading. There are sections on "40 minute meals" and "60 minute" meals in this book. This would disqualify the heading "Quick" or "Meals In Minutes."

The redeeming qualities of this book: the sections on picking produce, cuts of meat, and wine. However, remember since this book is one big ad for kosher.com, the suggested wines are ones that are affiliated/sponsored by that site. Also, her chatty style with the managers of Super-Sol was once again, annoying. The other redeeming quality is that Jamie does try to focus on recipes designed for a more sophisticated diner.
