What people are saying about Oma’s eCookbooks:

Love your 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.”

“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!”

“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.”

“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.”

“An excellent book. Very easy to follow along.

For the beginner, this is the cookbook for them. For the seasoned cook, this too is for them!

The recipe cards are a great bonus 🙂

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.”

“‘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!”

“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. Thanks for the printable recipe cards, too!”

“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.”
