Who reads a cook book? I went through this cover to cover. It is an invaluable resource, a milestone is the annals of Jewish cooking, a must for the single man. I would have been lost forever without it. I was lost (though didn't know it then) when I replaced it with a cook+. Better the book to eat by... more satifying, more nutritious, more honest cooking. LOVE it.

Made the chocolate chip cookies - a go to for us. Base for peanut butter and raisin and oatmeal (sub 1/2 cup flour with oatmeal flour). I use only 1/2 cup of butter.

just tried the macaroons - so easy and so awesome. The fluff right up in the oven.

This minimalist recipe book is easy to use with quick tasty foods.

A Jewish friend gave this to me in Toronto.
