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!

"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."

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."
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.

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.
