I need to say thank you for your wonderful recipes, notably "Healthy Helpings." I love to cook and bake, but am a bit obsessive about finding healthy yet tasty food for my kids. My daughter now lists her ingredients for her sand cakes "whole wheat flour....brown sugar....applesauce....flax seeds...." I find your recipes qualify both standards and are simple and easy for working mom with two kids to make regularly, so thanks.

Bourret, Hamilton Spectator
"... it was the vast amount of nutritional and practical information I found
in her book that I recommend. In the chapter called "Things You Want to
Know," she’s with you all the way, from the moment you push your shopping
cart through the door... She puts things in balance and helps you recognize
all the things you need to know about cooking and eating healthier in a
practical, yet easy and interesting manner. She won me over with the new
"Cream Cheese Pastry."
Schulman, The American Israelite
"... packed full of excellent ideas for the cook who keeps kosher and is
interested in preparing low-fat meals. Unlike many kosher cookbooks, this
is a real compendium of facts about ingredients and nutrition as well
as a large collection of recipes from pre-soup to nuts. It is clear that Ms.
Gilletz is a maven. She is also quite a wit; her book is filled with clever
puns, which add to the enjoyment of the text. Like The Joy of Cooking, this
book can be considered a reference tool... I recommend this book for all

way you can see if you have the ingredients before you get

it makes. Is it enough to feed all of us or should I
double it? Yes, it says I can freeze it. Good thing. I
have time today to make it and I will freeze it until I
