Always keeping her motto that "food that is good for you should taste good!" in mind, Norene shares traditional favorites as well as simply irresistible recipes that will appeal to the eye and the palate.

Norene will even help you maintain a healthy diet during the High Holidays, Chanukah and Passover. Feasts are still filled with flavor, but the fat and calories have been slashed so you will be able to enjoy your festive favorites without guilt. There are even options available if you have vegetarians at your table. The recipes and cooking tips in Healthy Helpings follow Kashruth (law of keeping kosher) and the wide variety of recipes from various ethnic cuisines have been adapted to follow kosher dietary guidelines.

You'll love Cajun Chicken, Honey Garlic Meatballs, Sesame Salmon and No-Fry Potato Latkas. Enjoy delectable desserts such as Square Moon Cookies, Jumbleberry Crisp and Guilt-Free Chocolate Cake.
