Sweet Noshings: New Twists on Traditional Jewish Desserts by Amy Kritzer

No matter your religion, you'll enjoy these tasty recipes. I know Jew will!

Growing up, Amy Kritzer loved to cook traditional foods with her Bubbe Eleanor. Whether they were braiding challah or rolling out rugelach dough, there was always tons of laughter (and a messy kitchen.) These days, inspired by Bubbe's best dishes, Amy puts her own modern twists on everyone's favorite classic Jewish recipes. She incorporates modern ingredients and techniques to make some of the most innovative Jewish creations ever! Her recipes have been featured in The Huffington Post, The Today Show Food Blog, Bon Appetit and more. Jewish food is totally having its moment.

Sweet Noshings takes the ever-evolving world of Jewish desserts to the next level. With stories of life as a Jew in Texas, and plenty of kitsch, Amy's modern interpretations of classic recipes bring new light to old favorites and creates a whole new unique cuisine. You don't have to be Jewish to love these sweets; just enjoy getting creative in the kitchen.

About the Author

Amy Kritzer developed "What Jew Wanna Eat" as your source for home cooked (sometimes) kosher goodness. She has always enjoyed cooking and baking, but needed a new goal, a challenge, to get back to her culinary roots. So, she called up Bubbe Eleanor and pleaded for her to send her best recipes. Amy loved cooking these recipes so much, she quit her corporate job and went to culinary school at Le Cordon Bleu in Austin. Now, she spends her days teaching cooking classes, developing recipes, personal chefing and food writing. Amy's recipes have been featured in Cosmopolitan, Bon Appetit, The Today Show and others. In 2012, she was a finalist in Daily Candy's Start Small, Go Big Contest.
