The "bride who knew nothing" is back! Five years after her wedding, Jamie Geller is juggling a career and running a busy household - and she still has no time to cook!
As her family and career rapidly grew, Jamie set out to learn how to cook with children around, how to cook meals that kids would eat (while not boring adult family and guests) and how to do it all without losing her cool.
Along the way, she did some thinking about food, children, and why we have both - and she's ready to share. Jamie will help you achieve a "Total Mommy Kitchen" (even if you happen to be a Daddy) by filling your Tool Box with the necessary items and creating a Comfort Zone that will make your kitchen the magnet room in your house. Jamie's homemaking ideas and hilarious anecdotes will enhance your home and lighten your heart.
This innovative cookbook features over 215 new quick recipes, new fast takes on traditional holiday dishes, and expert interviews about wine and cheese. Best of all, the recipes in this book tell you how much total time to allow for "PCS" - that's to Prep, Cook & Serve - the full meal. You'll find out how much you can do in just 20, 40, or 60 minutes, and there's a special holiday chapter too! What's more, all the recipes are combined into full, balanced menus, so you'll know that you're serving your family and guests meals that are nourishing, as well as scrumptious and enticing.
Jamie's fabulously creative food pairings and exotic interpretations of traditional fare make this cookbook a must-have for your busy kitchen!

A must have for your kitchen, By Hadassah Milner 'HadassahMilner'
November 4, 2010
This is the second recipe book in Jamie Geller's portfolio. I will apologize in advance for any gushing I do - her writing style, her honesty, her humour, her family stories, the hint of cooking aromas wafting around - they just totally pull me in. I can hear her voice in my head as I read her introductions and comments. When I first cracked open the book to read I was not in the best of moods, but by the time I had finished reading the introduction there was a huge grin on my face. Jamie's easy writing style just resonates with the reader.We were so excited when her book arrived at the house. My boys think I am now this huge cookbook expert. Nah, just an Ima who loves to cook and feed her family and is always looking for new recipes. When I told them that I had actually met Jamie, they were in awe. (Jamie - you have a few fans over here!)What struck me as I initially paged through the book was that there were a lot of recipes that I knew the kids would enjoy...

November 6, 2010
In her new cookbook, 'Quick & Kosher Meals in Minutes', Jamie Geller has made life in the kitchen a breeze. Not only do we have new quick recipes, they come replete with side dishes as well. An entire meal for one's family is right there on the page. No more scurrying about to figure out how to complete all parts of a meal that will be tasty to all members of the family. In addition to the yummy recipes is Jamie's ever enjoyable narrative that helps lighten up anyone's mood and outlook. Bravo chef Jamie!

Wow! Quick and Kosher Meals in Minutes is a cookbook I can honestly say that I am excited to use. Usually I pull out a cookbook out of necessity and not excitement but wow, Jamie's cookbook is beautiful, well-organized, funny and forgiving. If you have young children at home like myself and Jamie, you'll understand and appreciate how a cookbook that is forgiving can make a Mom feel at ease and relieved in her own kitchen (sigh). Jewishlifeorganized.com gives Quick and Kosher Meals in Minutes 5 stars!
