My third baby: More Real Life Kosher Cooking. coming soon! Published by ArtScroll/Mesorah Publications
Here’s the thing about me and writing cookbooks: each one is such a crazy amount of work, involves such an extraordinary amount of stress, it’s sometimes hard, while I’m working on it, to remember why I’m doing it. Here’s where it gets interesting though. As soon as the book comes out, and I start to get feedback from readers all over the world, I experience this high that makes me say….I gotta write another one! I know it’s a little crazy, but that’s exactly how I felt when my second cookbook, Real Life Kosher Cooking was released. All of the blood, sweat and tears, every sleepless night and stress-filled day instantly melted from my memory as I experienced the utter high that is people loving and using my cookbooks. The response was overwhelming. Within just a few days, every single recipe in the book had appeared in my inbox in a picture from a different reader.
Healthy Lemon Cheese Pancakes – Chapter 1: Breakfast and Bread
Clearly, it was all. worth. it. And so, soon after the release of the book, I started to work on my next one. And that’s how More Real Life Kosher Cooking came to be.
It’s been two very long years. Months and months of endless recipe testing and retesting. Weeks of styling and photographing delicious dishes. Weeks and weeks and late night after late night of writing, editing, and proofreading, and it’s all come down to this. In just a few short weeks, More Real Life Kosher Cooking will finally appear on store shelves all over the world. Scroll through this post to get a sample photo from each of the ten chapters, then keep reading for
Wontons in Garlic Sauce – Chapter 2: Appetizers and Snacks (Probably my family’s favorite recipe in the book!(
What is the theme of More Real Life Kosher Cooking
As you may have guessed from the title, this book is a follow up to my previous cookbook, Real Life Kosher Cooking. It has the same familiar layout, same division of chapters, and the same features you’ve come to know and love – such as plan ahead details for each recipe and helpful variations.
Steak and Pepper Salad with Lemon Dill Dressing – Chapter 3: Salads and Spreads

Zucchini Beef and Barley Stew – Chapter 4: Soups and Stews (The ultimate crowd pleaser!)
How many recipes are there in More Real Life Kosher Cooking? Are they new or previously published?
There are over 150 recipes in More Real Life Kosher Cooking, spanning all topics from brunch recipes to weeknight dinners, to special occasion desserts and yom tov roasts, even cocktails and snacks! I’m really excited about the variety in this book. Most of the recipes (probably 80-90%) are brand new, never seen before. There are a handful of fan favorites from my blog and magazine column, and then there are a number of recipes that are new and improved versions of previously published recipes. Some are minor tweaks, where you’ll instantly recognize the recipe, but others have been transformed to the point where you likely won’t even realize it’s an adaptation of a recipe you’ve seen before!
Spinach Chicken Burger – Chapter 5: Meat and Poultry (One of my personal favorite healthy dinners!)
Are the recipes in More Real Life Kosher Cooking healthy?
My goal with all of my cookbooks is to strike a good balance. So you’ll find lots of healthy or healthy-ish recipes for weekday meals, but there are a number of more indulgent recipes, for special occasions. There’s a small handful of recipes in the book that are deep fried, but the good news is, I’ve got an air fryer adaptation for many of them! And of course, (as you’ve come to expect from me) I rarely use margarine. I just double checked the book, and there’s only ONE recipe in the entire book that calls for it!
Caramelized Onion Manicotti – Chapter 6: Dairy and Meatless Mains
