What people are saying about Oma's Cookbooks:

To those who don’t know Gerhild, she’s the Oma who put German cuisine on the map with her highly popular website, justlikeoma.com. Oma dispelled, with great skill, my stereotypical view of beige-y sauce over beige-y sausage with beige-y sauerkraut and beige-y potatoes and finally - beige-y taste. I thought all German cuisine was the same - sausage. Boy was I wrong. Beautifully photographed, Oma’s recipes taste as scrumptious as they look. Look out France, Spain and Italy. A new major European cuisine is about to give you a run for our palates! 😋

➤ Ken Evoy, MD, Founder of SiteSell.com and creator of Solo Build It!

Love your e-book and especially those "Oma says". My favorite one was the one where you tried to hide the onions in the soup because your husband doesn't like them. I had a good laugh over that one. It reminded me of when my mother tried to hide garlic in all the cooking, but my father always knew she did. He hated garlic! What a charming and warm cookbook. Makes one feel young again and at home in the kitchen with their Mutti and Oma. Thank you, Gerhild, for making this book for us. You know, I am so glad I looked up your website. Now, I have something else to look forward to."

Gerhild's Just Like Oma website has always been a go-to when I'm searching for German recipes that taste like home, so I'm absolutely delighted that her fabulous recipes have been captured in book form. This beautiful cookbook is loaded with regional recipes and mouthwatering photographs. Best of all, there are tips to insure that your dishes taste just like Oma's. German Meals at Oma's is destined to be a kitchen essential for all German-American kitchens.

These delicious soups are truly made in no time at all, quick, as the title says, with ingredients that you most likely have on hand. What a relief it is not having to go shop for ingredients you don't know how to pronounce! Included in the book are many ideas of substituting the original ingredients and turning-up the taste a notch or totally changing the taste of the soup. The directions are easy to follow and easy to understand. You'll have no problem serving these soups to your guests. They are foolproof & yummy delicious! What I love the most is that you add a little bit of this and a little bit of that. You don't have to be exact at all with measuring the ingredients. And cutting up the vegetables doesn't have to be pretty either. Gerhild makes it so easy! She takes away the fear of messing up or trying something new. 'Quick Fix Soups' is a great addition to my recipe collection, one I don't want to miss. Thank you, Gerhild, for inspiring us all and saving us time in the kitchen!"

I have followed Gerhild’s recipes for many years. Her recipes are similar to the ones I grew up eating from my German heritage. I have found her recipes to be authentic and easy to understand. In Gerhild’s book, German Meals at Oma’s, I like how she divided the recipes by regions of Germany. I also love her pictures and little tips given about the recipes. These are great for the readers! I recommend this book for all cooks; beginners and experienced.

➤ Frances Peffly Moore, Author of www.painlesscooking.com

It was a real pain going through this eBook! Why? The photos are so 'tasty' looking that I spent considerable time looking at each photograph. So it took a really long time to go through the entire book. The photographer and the book designer have done an excellent job. There really seems nothing to criticize about this book. Tried hard, but I really liked everything. Congratulations once again on a great publication.

➤ Prasanna Vishwasrao

As a German-American that is a bit culinarily challenged, this book is a true blessing! What makes this book extra wonderful is that the recipes are separated by region. German food is more complex than bratwurst, sauerkraut and pretzels! This classic cookbook has not only a variety of different recipes, but also key notes to help even those with little experience in the kitchen learn to make excellent German cuisine.

➤ Erika Neumayer Ehrat, Owner & designer of Rare Dirndl, raredirndl.com

Your eBook - WOW. It is excellent. Great write-ups, great layout, great pictures, colours, everything!! The Oma touch is really unique too. The recipe cards at the end is a nice touch. In summary - WOW - great job. Love it and I will be making most, if not all, of these recipes.

➤ Noreen Loos

Gerhild takes us on a culinary journey across Germany through her thoughtful selection of regional dishes, with helpful tips and anecdotes along the way. Written with heart and expertise, Gerhild captures the essence of traditional German food culture in a way that will elicit an enthusiastic “Guten Appetit!"

➤ Kimberly Killebrew, Founder of The Daring Gourmet, www.daringgourmet.com

An excellent ebook. Very easy to follow along. For the beginner, this is the cookbook for them. For the seasoned cook, this too is for them! The pictures speak volumes, made me hungry. The best part is this -- I can see how those on special diets can modify to their needs.

➤ Kate

If you love German food and want to explore preparing some memorable German meals at home, then you need the new cookbook German Meals at Oma's. Her recipes are authentic, and she truly has an amazing assortment included from sauerbraten to spätzle and everything in between. This is really one of the BEST German cookbooks to come out in a long time.

➤ Mary Marshall, www.cookingwithmaryandfriends.com, and Food Columnist with Camden Living Magazine, www.camdenlivingsc.com

'Quick Fix Soups' has to be one of the best soup books I have ever seen, the way it is presented, the book cover, colorful and inviting. Your Table of Contents says it all: quick and accessible. I love the introductory story filled with interesting nostalgia, along with pictures of your granddaughters. The recipes are presented with step-by-step procedures. 'Oma says' are full of hints, and 'a bit of this and a bit of that' are rewarding suggestions. What a great idea to have recipe cards, again quick and easily accessible. Excellent cook book. I can hardly wait to get started cooking soups. We love eating soup. And, what I like about these recipes, is that I don't have to be all day cooking in the kitchen. 'Quick Fix Soups' is for me!"

➤ Melania Orasch

"Sehr Gut, Gerhild! Your Quick Fix Soups e-book is wonderful. My Swiss wife is going to love the soups that I make for her with your recipes. She already loves my soups, but your e-book will greatly expand the variety Thank you for making the recipe easy to follow and see with the beautiful photos. The extra tips and options that you give after each recipe are very helpful.

➤ Chef Glenn

Love authentic German food? Oma creates traditional German recipes with tips and tricks to make them inexpensive, no fuss, and tasty! Can't pronounce Rotkohl mit Äpfeln? No problem! Oma lets you in on just what the recipe is (Red Cabbage and Apples) AND makes it so simple to prepare even an Irishwoman like me could follow her recipes.

➤ Sharon Peterson, Author of Simply Canning: Guide to Safe Home Canning and Teacher at Canning Basics Online Canning Course www.simplycanning.com

This comprehensive cookbook brings back so many treasured food memories from my childhood. My German “Mutti” and her mom, my Oma, both long gone, were such great cooks, but their recipes were never written down. Gerhild Fulson’s expansive recipe collection will help people of my generation with their “lost” recipes and it will introduce new generations to German specialties that are both delicious and a part of Germany’s rich culinary culture.

➤ Inga Bowyer, Co-founder, GermanDeli Food Store

"Wunderbar! A must-have book for every household, and a mouth-watering walk down memory lane for me. I will forever cherish my copy of "Quick Fix Soups", Gerhild. These many jewels of good old-fashioned frugal recipes, all wrapped in beautiful photographs and sprinkled with time-tested "Oma says" advice, brings back fond memories of my childhood overseas. Many of your pearls of wisdom are the very same secrets of our success for consistently eating healthy, minimizing time in the kitchen, cutting food waste, and keeping our grocery bill below $150 a month. But, I gleaned many new and ingenious ideas from you, too. Thank you, Gerhild, for pulling it all together into this fantastic gem of a book and extremely handy recipe cards so my family can refer to them again and again for years to come."
