This recipe is absolutely worth the extra work to make it and would impress guests. I was making it for just two of us so cut the recipe in half. I did add a tablespoon of Clear Creek Apple Brandy to the finished sauce which really added to the apple flavor. My husband loved it and I know we will make this again.

This is a lovely flavored chutney that was easy to make on a rainy afternoon. I canned most of the batch in 4 ounce jars but saved a bit out to serve with goat cheese as an appetizer. It was perfect with the goat cheese on crackers so I am looking forward to setting it out during the holidays with a cheese platter.
by hillsboroks about Grape chutney from Diana Henry at The Sunday Telegraph
This is probably one of the simplest homemade ravioli recipes, but the combination of goat cheese, lemon, and fresh pasta is hard to beat. The pink peppercorns are, I think, what makes it special, so use them if at all possible. I used fresh oregano instead of tarragon, and found that to be a good match. I used a ravioli form to shape the pasta, which leaves a very narrow boarder around the filling. Because of this, about a third of the dough remained after I had used up the filling. Still, the finished ravioli served three adults as a main course with a few leftover. And extra pasta dough isn't a problem - I can use it to make fettuccine tomorrow!

We thought this was great - loved the smoked paprika flavor. Used 8 boneless skinless thighs and 2 boneless skinless breasts, cooked for about 1 hour in oven in a cast iron pot. Would definitely make extra and freeze next time. Tastes even better the next day. If you trim some of the fat from the thighs before cooking, you can skip defatting the sauce. Made with Sweet & Tangy BBQ Sauce from same site.
by aeader about Barbecue shredded chicken from The Kitchn
Used a little extra vinegar, about ½ the salt, ½ the liquid smoke, and Frank’s Red Hot Sauce. Recipe is easily doubled (freeze the extra). Excellent on pulled chicken.

This was a fine but not too exciting side dish. I disagree that the raisins and pine nuts don't add anything to the recipe though- I thought the raisins added some depth and complexity and pine nuts a welcome crunch.

Delicious- a perfect match with the wild boar stew from this book. I had pre-cooked chestnuts, and maybe they were drier than fresh, but I had to use significantly more milk than what was called for in order to get an acceptable puree. (Not sure how much, I kept adding while pureeing in the food processor until I got what I wanted.) But once I did- this was amazing!
by TrishaCP about Chestnut puree from Food of Spain
Stew is a misnomer- this is really a braised meat dish with more braising liquid than normal. (In other words, you will want side dishes with this one- it isn't a complete meal on its own.) Still the flavors were lovely- I loved the cinnamon here. The chestnut puree is a perfect match.

I really loved the lime zest here, it was fragrant and definitely awoke the palate. The coconut wasn't discernible. The picture shown also reverses the amount of pudding v. mango, there was a lot of pudding for not so much mango, and the pudding definitely could have been sweeter (3 tablespoons isn't enough, you need at least 1/3 cup for a minimally sweet pudding in my opinion). Still with all that said it definitely has potential and is worth making again with tweaks.

This dish is really delicious, and that's saying something, since I'm not normally a fan of cauliflower. I've made it a few times over the past 5 years or so. Tonight I made it with only about half the amount of cauliflower called for. I made the full amount of the dressing and saved half of it to use on other roasted vegetables.

Pg. 583. This was very good! A lot of prep involved with all the chopping, but after that, everything came together very quickly. I used a Savoy cabbage because I didn't have a Napa. Otherwise, followed the directions as written. I cooked the cabbage just until crisp-tender, so it was still very much intact and recognizable. I'd make this again anytime.

Not a lot of pumpkin flavor
by MiChal.626 about Pumpkin waffles from Simply Recipes
I used Greek yogurt for this recipe, and found that I needed to add several additional tablespoons. Because of its thickness, using 3/4 of a cup of yogurt left me with a dough that was too dry, and I had only a scant 1/3 cup milk on hand, just enough to meet the needs of the recipe. After adding the additional yogurt, I had a fairly stiff dough, so rolled it into balls. The biscuits were light and tender, fluffy rather than flaky. The dill and cheddar combination would make them a good base for savory breakfast sandwiches, although I would keep them small, as they are somewhat delicate.
by Rutabaga about Cheddar dill biscuits from Gourmet Magazine, April 2005
Making pesto in the mortar is fun, if a bit more laborious. I wouldn't say it's difficult, although my basil didn't break down into as fine a paste as you get with a blender. The smell of fresh pesto being pounded is incredible, even though my basil was sadly near wilting, with a lot of large, tougher leaves. When made with fresh, small leaves, it would be amazing. The addition of butter was not something with which I was familiar, but it gave the pesto a sweet creaminess that coated the pasta nicely.
