Puree beets more, used butter and buckwheat flour.

This is a creative way to use up a head of cabbage, and a good simple dinner for fall or winter. Since I didn't have a whole head, the cabbage flavor was pretty mild. For tomato sauce, I pureed a can of San Marzano tomatoes.
by Rutabaga about Fettuccine with spicy sausage and cabbage ribbons from Food & Wine Magazine, April 2013
I made this delicious salad without the watercress. It was beautifully refreshing served with slow cooked wagu beef ribs.
by RosieB about Feta and orange salad with honeyed almonds from Change of Appetite
I had to make this without watercress and I'd be interested to try that next time to see what difference it makes. It's quite a chewy pilaf with wild and brown rice. I liked the addition of cardamom. I served it with the Chicken and fennel with honey, mustard and orange on the same page. Because the onions needs to get "really golden" before you add the brown rice, and then needs another 30 minutes to cook, I'd get started on that before the chicken goes into the oven.
by Jane about Black and white pilaf from Change of Appetite
Loved this combination of flavors with chicken - honey, grain mustard, orange and fennel. It's so quick and simple to prepare then it just bakes in the oven while you get on with the side. I served it with the black and white pilaf on the same page and I would recommend starting that before putting the chicken in the oven. The onions take quite a while to get to "really golden" and then the brown rice cooks with it, so start cooking rather than prepping the pilaf when the chicken goes into the oven.

Not really sure why a dish calling for just 2 tsp of lemon juice warrants the inclusion of "lemony" in the recipe title, but this was a very good recipe regardless. The bok choy stems which I was a little nervous about including in such a quantity were surprisingly mild and tasty. I used 3/4 pound of shrimp and doubled the sauce ingredients. As this is not a "saucy" dish (even with double amounts), but rather meant to lightly coat the ingredients, I really can't imagine using only the amount called for. Since I had no idea how to measure 2 cups of dry lo mein noodles, I decided my 8 oz. package looked like about the right amount for a dish yielding 4 servings and it seemed to be. (Though my approximation definitely could have affected the sauce ratio.) I probably wouldn't seek out the ingredients to make this again, but if I found myself with some bok choy again it would certainly be worth another go.

Made this to use up some kale from our CSA box -- I didn't have very high expectations, but it turned out surprisingly well! I used my go-to pizza dough recipe in place of the one outlined specifically for this recipe.
by Christine about Kale pizza from Recipes from the Root Cellar
Skipped the basil at the end since I didn't have any and used my go-to pizza dough recipe in place of a ready-made crust. My onions were on the smaller side, so I used two. I really should have followed the instruction for stirring the sun-dried tomatoes into the sauce, but I got ahead of myself and started spreading sauce on the dough in autopilot mode without consulting the instructions. I then just sprinkled the sun-dried tomatoes on top of the sauce instead, but some got blackened which I don't think would have happened if they had a layer of sauce coating them. Still a very delicious pizza that I would definitely make again.
by Christine about Caramelized onion and goat cheese pizza from Cooking Light The Essential Dinner Tonight Cookbook
A bit labor intensive, but quite yummy. Rich flavored gravy. It worked well with faux meat crumbles instead of ground sirloin, although more oil was necessary to substitute for the meat fat & juices.
by Nancith about Beef and mushroom shepherd’s pie from Jim Fobel's Casseroles
A straight forward fennel recipe-which I streamlined further by skipping the browning before braising. I used the River Cottage Preserves Handbook 'Souper mix' to make the vegetable broth- the graininess actually added visual interest that liquid broths don't.
by Barb_N about Braised fennel from Gluten-Free Girl and the Chef
This is sort of like a vegetable bouillon paste, although mine remained somewhat grainy due to an underpowered Cuisinart. It keeps for quite a while in the fridge, and I froze some in ice cube trays which extended its life. It has lots of salt to preserve it so make sure to taste before adding any more.
by Barb_N about Souper mix from River Cottage Preserves Handbook
I would suggest you finish cooking the peas if using frozen ones as I found there was a chalky aftertaste with frozen peas that had only been thawed.
by IngridO about Creamy tofu and green pea dip from The Kitchn
As written, the caper flavor doesn't really come through. I increased the capers by 1 tsp and that made a difference.
by Laura about Spinach, mushroom and tomato salad with garlic-caper vinaigrette from The Washington Post
This was good, but nothing special.
by Laura about Sweet and sour cucumber salad from The Washington Post
Pg. 56. The part of this recipe that intrigued me the most was the spiced chickpeas. The salad and vinaigrette are pretty basic and hardly require a recipe -- although the salad itself is really beautiful -- very colorful. The only change I made to the salad was to add some arugula leaves. I was a bit concerned about adding the spiced chickpeas to the salad because I wasn't sure how well the different flavors would combine. Well, as it turns out, it was delicious! The chickpeas really brought another dimension of flavor to the salad and it was subtle, not overwhelming. Ottolenghi suggests adding some Greek yogurt as a topping -- I didn't do that this time but might try it in the future. I would definitely make this again.
by Laura about Spiced chickpeas & fresh vegetable salad from Jerusalem
Take the pits out of the cherries. It's not explicitly stated in the recipe, but doing so makes a difference. And if you can't find hollyhocks, substitute with hibiscus flowers.

...the more thoroughly you beat the egg yolks, and the slower you mix the warm milk in, the better off you'll be. Make sure all ingredients are at least room temperature before beginning.

The second step...says to toss in a "nonreactive bowl". Here, you're best off using glass or ceramic. Reserve a spoonful of pansy sugar to sprinkle on top while baking, giving a nice crunchy crust.

Choose air-popped, lightly or non-salted popcorn for this recipe; popcorn popped in oil or fat will give the milk a funky flavor you don't want ending up in your cupcake.
