Welcome to a new cookbook designed for those of you that want to prepare a great hardy meal and are not afraid to use butter and fat!

For some of you, these are meals you remember as a child, long before we had to watch our waist and worry about calorie counting. If this is the first time trying this type of food, well are you in for a treat.

We currently have:

Main Meals - 17 recipes
Side Dishes - 15 recipes
Deserts - 22 recipes

Sometimes there is nothing better than good, old-fashioned comfort food. Like the comfort food Oma (Grandma) used to make. These are the foods included here in Oma's Cooking... meals that taste as good as they look and in the end will fill you up and of course, make you happy and content...

I have the had the pleasure of growing up in a German family where both Mom and Oma cooked great home cooked meals. I know from my friends at work, not everyone knows how to cook this way. I have always loved sharing my food with the guys at work, and they always let me know how fortunate I am to come from a family that knows how to cook, good hardy tasty meals, and deserts.

This app includes meals, side dishes and deserts, for you to try and enjoy!

If you'd like to keep a printable version handy, you can email the recipe. You'll want to tell your friends about the recipes you've found and made using our Facebook link, found at the top of every recipe.

Our app is supported and written by both our Oma and Mother. This is a testament to great cooking and eating. We hope you enjoy our meals, side dishes, and deserts.

Ratings and Reviews



I was lured in by the promises there was going to be traditional German meals featured in this app. Very disappointed. First, the dishes that are featured are very limited, and include recipes for meals like fried chicken and ravioli. I'm not downloading this app looking for anything like that. I was really hoping for a holiday or seasonal sections, considering this app sells the idea of German family tradition in it's title. Please update this app to include holiday meals such as Christmas Day goose, or Christmas Eve vegetable sauce...There simply isn't enough here to justify paying $2, unfortunately. German cuisine, especially Oma's library of recipes, should include more... And give me some features like video, or at least a save recipe button. This app is no where near complete. Kinda want my money back. Has so much potential though! Please make it what it could, and should be!

Not very many recipes


I’m not impressed by this app.

Excellent home style German recipes


Schnitzel, sauerbraten and knödels are some of the recipes featured in this app. It showcases food from a nice, homey perspective. If you're a fan of German cooking, try this! Very unique--you won't find another app like it.
