Notes about Recipes in this site

  • Thai chicken curry wraps

    • krobbins426 on February 17, 2012

      Used Trader Joe's Mock Chicken into pan with almonds and spinach, added raw diced red pepper and two chopped scallions (also raw) and cilantro instead of parsley. Served on the side of crusty bread and edamame. Very quick weekday dinner.

  • Lemon cream chicken

    • wester on May 03, 2012

      Excellent. The ingredients are great on their own already, and they work together wonderfully. Easy to make, too.

  • Chunky monkey granola

    • radishseed on April 30, 2014

      I love the sunflower seed butter + chocolate + crispy rice + dried banana combo. (Raisins or other dried fruit would be great too!) I think this would be easier to eat in bar form, as in the recipe this is adapted from, because it's soft and sticky and tricky to eat as a finger food. It reminds me of the scotcheroos I used to make as a kid. It is really sweet--I might try it with half as much sugar and honey.

  • Dead ricotta in the garden

    • Bloominanglophile on November 27, 2013

      This recipe did not work out for me. I thought the ricotta I bought was fairly dry (Crumbly ricotta? Did he mean ricotta salata?!? Surely not a pound of it!), but the patties never set up when frying. Flipping them proved disastrous. I thought maybe there was too much oil in the pan, so I spooned most of it out. Next batch, I tried to make them smaller (silver-dollar sized), but that still didn't work. If I was to attempt this again (which I won't), I might subtract an egg yolk and add another tablespoon of flour? It looked like a lovely recipe--too bad.

Publishers Text

Never one to attend a gathering or play date without bringing food, Amy was frequently asked for the recipes. This was the inspiration for Very Culinary, which was born in 2009.

Amy lives in the real world with a house, husband, little kids, and dogs, all craving attention…and no sous chef (sound familiar?) This leaves her on a constant quest to find and create meals that don't leave her standing for hours, but that taste really good.

Her recipes are best made with 70's music in the background and pie on the side.
