My review is going to be a bit different. I went through the recipes one by one to find some to try in my own home this Hanukkah. I must admit I had trouble choosing, but finally settled on stuffed mushrooms, tzimmes, salmon and fruit dessert.
I loved the simple cooking steps and processes.
I also appreciated the wholesome ingredients like sweet potatoes, carrots, plums and apricots, paired with more elegant touches of sweet wine and butter and honey.
The first night of Hanukkah both our teenage sons had other things going on, so my husband and I both got to sit down to a nice quiet meal. It was like a date night. And thus, I got to hear the string of praise from my husband's lips as he ate...
The stuffed mushrooms got a string of "Oh Wow!'s"
The salmon, the true test since I have never made a salmon my husband likes, was "Oh Man, this is awesome. I didn't know salmon could taste like this." High praise there!
And he thought the tzimmes a perfect compliment to the salmon.
He couldn't stop praising the meal actually and said it beat out my spaghetti and meatballs...hmmm, not sure how I feel about that!Read more ›
Our Mother's Recipes: Carrying on a Jewish Tradition is a family-style cookbook filled with delicious traditional Jewish meal ideas for any level of home cook.
When I told my mother I was reading a Jewish cookbook, the first thing she asked me about was the matzo ball soup, and following that conversation we decided to whip up a pot. Yum! I have always loved concocting new recipes, especially those that I consider "comfort foods", and this book is filled with many amazing Jewish home cooked recipes - from breakfast to dessert! I like the format of the book; ingredients and instructions are easy to read and include stories about the meals, as well as color photographs of the finished products. There is a wonderfully genuine feel to this book and all of its recipes, it's like these recipes are being handed down to the reader; ( I wish certain members of my family would have shared their cooking secrets like this family did!). I tried several of the recipes, including the chicken soup with matzo balls, the stuffed mushrooms, and the fruit compote. Every dish came out looking delectable, and they tasted great too! The stuffed mushrooms are my favorite so far! I will definitely be using this cookbook as a kitchen resource in the future, and I recommend it to any cooking enthusiasts interested in authentic Jewish cuisine.
Rating: On the Run (4.5/5)
*** I received this book from the author (Assisting Authors Online) in exchange for an honest and unbiased review.
I want to thank the authors for sharing their wonderful recipes with the world! The recipes are easy to follow, and this Hanukah was the best dinner I have ever made thanks to Dorene Sager and Armin Feldman. Now everyone wants my recipes, so all I do is tell them to order this wonderful book.

Armin Feldman was my shrink for over ten years and I turned out pretty good, so I thot I'd try his mama's dishes. Be alert, the pound cake is so good you may go crazy! Read morePublished on December 20, 2013 by Raven
