You aren't going to find any "OMG WOW" recipes in here. Maybe one or two. But what you will find are staple kosher dishes with really really easy and tastey ingredients.
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'm pretty surprised to see such negative reviews since I love it. The recipes are short and simple and even though some are "non-recipes" (like the ducksauce chicken) they are good to have on hand for when you absolutely positively only have time to slather some duck sauce on some chicken. The book is for busy people who enjoy cooking but don't want to spend eternity in the kitchen. Try it- you'd be surprised how tasty some of the non-recipes are! By the way, there are plenty of actual recipes in there too and everything I've made so far was a big hit. Another bonus is that most of the recipes are accompanied by a picture- very helpful- and appealing.

I don't know why people have bashed this cookbook - I absolutely love it, and I am an experienced cook! I made my entire Shabbat from this and everyone raved over the recipes. I made the Oniony Chicken, the stew with the flanken and bean soup mixes (I wasn't able to cook it the full 3 hours and it was STILL excellent!), and the Aroz con Pollo. All were excellent and exceptionally easy.

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! :)

As a working mom who is also a grandma of eight, I picked up this book because of the title - quick and kosher. Not only are the recipes quick to prepare, they are creative and delicious. So far, my famly has enjoyed a different salad every night and although the Chilled Salmon with Dijon Dipping Sauce is listed under the appetizers - I served it as a main course and received rave reviews. And by the way, the author's stories are as entertaining as the recipes are delicious!

Quick and Kosher recipes from the bride who knew nothing.

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.

Cons

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.

What a novel cookbook! It's both a cookbook and a funny, warm, true story about a Jewish bride who found herself lost in the kitchen and decided to take matters into her own hands, learning what she could about how to cook.It is a beginners book for new cooks with all the helpful hints they will need. It is a refreshing review for experienced cooks who have perhaps forgotten some very fundamental recipes. The recipes are extremely clear; the photos are beautiful and allow you to see what the finished product will look like. The added chapters on wine and shopping are informative and represent the total food experience that one is looking for when planning a special meal.With so many cookbooks on the market, it's certainly fun to find one that is humorous as well as informative. signed, an old cook ready to learn new tricks
