Fishbein adds to her popular Kosher by Design series with this tasty recipe collection geared toward teens and college students though they will appeal to busy cooks of all ages. Fresh, simple ingredients and uncluttered preparation techniques form the basis of 100 recipes with flavors from a variety of cuisines. Some, like the Turkey Sliders or Mexican Chicken bear passing resemblance to fast food favorites only healthier, better tasting and less expensive. Many like the Pizza Soup, Apricot Sesame Roast or Peanut Butter and Banana French Toast use common pantry contents in creative, delicious and surprising ways that will satisfy. The Chocolate Fluffernutter Quesadillas puts a different spin on an old childhood favorite with satisfying results.
All the recipes have been extensively taste tested by a host of young people who have given each one the “thumbs-up.” Those with a sweet tooth will find the dessert section alone well worth the price of the book as they indulge in Molten Deep-Dish Chocolate Chip Cookies, Chocolate Tart in Pretzel Crust or No-Bake Dulce de Leche Cheesecake. There are also several quick party planning ideas in the back to get you started, who knew kosher could be so easy!
