Looking for a kosher cookbook [moved from Kosher board]

On one of the other boards, I saw a reference to a kosher cookbook called "Just 5--Kosher," supposedly a book of kosher 5 ingredient recipes. I have done a number of searches for a book with this (and similar) title, but have found nothing. Does anyone have any more info on such a title?

  1. I have that cookbook. 500 recipies with 5 ingredients or "Double Nachas and More"

    "Morris Press Cookbooks" 800-445-6621

      I think the mystery is solved. Searches at Amazon and Google turned up nothing, but then I googled "Morris Press." It is a company that publishes cookbooks for organizations and such. I guess some group put that out itself; it does not seem to be a commercial, widely available title. Thanks anyway.

        Its a shame, this is one of my favorite cookbooks. I am not a big fan of recipies with a million ingredients, a pinch of this, a sprinke of that. My mother made wonderfull dishes without lots of ingredients.

        1. re: MartyB

          MartyB, can you please give the specific names of recipes from this cookbook that you particularly enjoy. I have the book and am looking for recommendations.
          Thanks very much!

    2. I saw Susan Fishbein in a cooking demonstration. Her books are excellent. All available at I am waiting for her new Passover book to arrive. I know that was not the question, but cooking is my hobbie and being kosher is nice to have books to get ideas from.

        Susan Fishbein's recipes are a far cry from the 5 ingredients or less! There are a plethora of kosher cookbooks, but not many that are as simple. Another fine choice is "The Heimishe Kitchen" - lots of simple classic recipes .

        1. re: MartyB

          Marty, I don't want this to turn into a two people conversation, but I did add the disclaimer that I was departing a bit from the question. I consider myself and advanced amateur, but I know plenty of beginners including newlywed couples who use her recipes. I have no conflict of interest and do not receive any rewards of any kind for my endorsement... Opps! my other trade slipped out :)

      2. Spice and Spirit is great and full of simple and more complex dishes. The Fishbein Passover Cookbook is good.
