Yes some of the recipes may seem like no brainers "duck sauce, ketchup & pepper flakes" over chicken. But I remember when I knew NOTHING in the kitchen and that would have been a help.
Teaching me how to make a loaf of gefilte fish..while for some people this may seem like a no-brainer..there was a time when I needed to be taught how.
This cookbook will teach you ALL those "kosher food basics" and even toss in a few more. (curried coconut couscous.. it was AMAZINGly delicious).
I am now an experienced cook, used to making complicated and interesting recipes that use 3 pieces of equipment and an array of pots and pans. I look forward to trying out more of these recipes which bring back the days of learning how to "boil water".
Don't be fooled though.. the recipes may be simple.. but from the looks of them.. they will be YUMMY!
If you are looking for more "original" and "inventive" recipes.. you might try to Susie Fishbein cookbooks. (Be prepared to pull out all your pots and pans..)
I find Jamie's humor comforting and warm and I just thoroughly enjoyed using this cookbook for the first time this week. I loved her honesty and wit.
Truly an excellent cookbook that I will reach for time and time again. Thank you Jamie Geller! :)
Pros (theres a lot of them)
1.Fun to read- In between recipes, Jamie tells us her hilarious cooking fiascos
2.Simple recipes- most are just mix and dump, all don't require any appliance except maybe a blender
3.Few Ingredients- Most of her recipes use typical ingredients found in most kosher pantries
4.Quick!!!- here's the biggie all her recipes take less than 15 minutes (yes folks 15 minutes on the FIRST try)
I've seen other "quick" cookbooks where prep time can be an hour!
5.Delicious recipes- With Jamie, you don't have to compromise taste for time. Her quick easy recipes taste good!
I've tried dozens of Chocolate chip cookie recipes but her's is my go to recipe. It's quick and yummy!
6.Passover section- Jamie gives simple conversions that can make a nice chunk of her cookbook kosher for passover as well! So you also get quick and kosher for Passover! 2 in 1!
7.Menu ideas- There are menu ideas for all minor and major Jewish holidays
8.Wine- There are wine suggestions with every recipe even the desserts! There is also an interview with a winery!
9.Interviews- Jamie interviews a butcher, grocer, produce and fish guy on how to get the best meat fish and produce as well as more info about the Jewish food market.
1.Desserts- with just 15 minutes, most of her desserts are more on the plain side. There aren't too many Wow! desserts.
2.Ingredients- Jamie is all about saving time and uses many processed ingredients. Some may say, "I don't need to buy a cookbook to tell me to bake my chicken with duck sauce". If that's you maybe buy a different cookbook with more elaborate recipes.
This cookbook is prefect for a new bride (I got one for my sister a bride who has no idea how to cook) or for someone who doesn't like to fuss in the kitchen.

Jamie's recipes are certainly basic, but I think that is a good thing! Her recipes are easy and require ingredients you're likely to have in your kitchen. Read morePublished on January 9, 2012 by sahl
