Ever since I got my copy of Quick & Kosher, Jamie Geller's first cookbook, I've been hoping for a sequel. And after meeting this adorable, down-to-earth powerhouse (and interviewing her for the Jewish Press) back in 2007-she was working on new recipes even as she was out promoting that debut volume-I was even more eager to see what else she would have in store. Three years in the making, Quick & Kosher: Meals in Minutes hits stores this month.

How can you be sure that bacteria are not festering in your food? Dangerous pathogens like Salmonella, E. coli, Listeria and chemical contaminants are responsible for more than 76 million food-borne illnesses a year in the U.S., according to the Center for Disease Control.

Ah, the joys of August. Whether it is from a farmer’s market, a roadside stand, your own backyard or even the produce aisle of your local supermarket, there is no doubt that now is the time to feast on the freshest and most delectable offerings of the year. But while many of us consider late summer to be prime time for enjoying the simple goodness of nature’s bounty, for one of the most respected names in the kosher cooking world, simplicity is the name of the game all year around.
Chanukah is such an exciting chag to look forward to. Not just because of the presents and the menorah, the lights and the chocolates - and the fact that I feel like it's a really fun kids' holiday - but it's so exciting to actually be able to serve freshly baked food.

These popular little puff pastry parcels are usually filled with potatoes, mushrooms or spinach and cheese. They can be served as snack, as finger foods at a Shabbos kiddush, or as part of a summer picnic. They are a genuine Sephardic-Jewish creation, copied by others throughout the Eastern Mediterranean. They can be served hot or cold; you can prepare them in advance, and then freeze, unbaked. Just pop them into the oven when needed.
