Did I get your attention? Ladies, I need your help! My relationship with my kitchen has become stale and the fire needs to be rekindled ASAP! You know when you get into a cooking routine where your family loves certain recipes and so do your Shabbat guests, so you start playing it safe? At which point, you know how to whip the recipes up by heart, and whoever helps you in the kitchen does too, so you just do them by rote – because who wants to “waste” time experimenting? Sounds kind of awful, but yeah, I am so so terribly bored of my kitchen!!!
I have plenty of good recipes, don’t get me wrong, but I’m just bored of them! (Yes to all of you who keep asking me for my pareve cheesecake and my chocolate chip cookies and my three different chollent recipes, now you know why I keep telling you that they are coming and they don’t show up here… I just make them without any inspiration whatsoever and have lost any excitement to photograph them and publish them… boo to me!) I haven’t purchased new cookbooks in a while and I think maybe if I make a few additions to my collection, I might be able to regain my inspiration. Tell me that I’m not the only one guilty of having a stale relationship with my kitchen, please!!!
So I was searching online for the latest kosher cookbooks out there and while I can go by the reviews, the problem is that they all have 5 stars on Amazon (well it’s not really a problem). So, I figured I’d ask you guys, if you have any favorites, good experiences with any of the newer cookbooks, or any other recommendations to share…? So let’s hear it, please! My family and I will thank you!
This is just the round up that I gathered up, but I’m open to any other suggestions …
1|| The New Kosher by Weldon Owen
2|| The Silver Platter: Simple to Spectacular Wholesome, Family-Friendly Recipes by Daniella Silver Norene Gilletz
3|| Kosher Taste, Cookbook – Plan | Prepare | Plate by Amy Stopnicki
4|| Bubbe and Me in the Kitchen: A Kosher Cookbook of Beloved Recipes and Modern Twists by Miri Rotkovitz
5|| Modern Jewish Cooking: Recipes & Customs for Today’s Kitchen by Leah Koenig
Ok let’s hear it… What am I buying? PLEASE! If I order Amazon Prime, before Shabbat comes in, my kitchen and I might have rekindled the fire! ;-)
