I was excited when I saw this book since it seems I always have some extra buttermilk in the fridge that needs to be used up. Hopefully my first experience with the recipes isn't indicative of what's to come as the GREEN CHILI STEW WITH MASA DUMPLINGS was a dull flop. First of all, when the recipe has you puree all the veggies (never mind before even cooking them) we're talking soup, not stew in my books. Cooking would have drawn out the natural sweetness and flavours of the vegetables in my view but since they were pureed raw and warmed in the pot they were very "one note" and just green-tasting. Of course once the mixture is heated it turns a dull grey-green and isn't remotely appetizing. The addition of buttermilk, which the author points out, curdles as it hits the pot, just takes this from uninspired looking to off-putting. We poured what was left down the drain. Even a spritz of lime juice couldn't brighten this hot mess!!

Used 2 small bananas and soured milk as I had no buttermilk - absolutely delicious, and no effort to make.
by Pangur Ban about Banana buttermilk pancakes from Feast
This was delicious and dead simple - perfect for an easy midweek dinner. I doubled the corn and added a fresh green chilli. Will definitely repeat.
by aargle about Chorizo, corn & black bean salad with tortillas from Delicious Magazine (Aus), April 2010
Easy to make and a crowd pleaser but too sweet for me.
by cookktanner about Caramel coconut slice from Cakes & Slices Cookbook
This was an unmitigated disaster- a shame given the tasty ingredients. The instructions were descriptively specific (reduce by one third) but maddeningly vague on things like time and temperature. I reduced the milk exactly according to my measuring cup but when I mixed it and the melted chocolate into the barely whipped cream I knew there was too much liquid and it would not set. Sure enough, even after chilling almost 3 hours it was barely the consistency of a runny mousse, layered over a mess. I scooped the top off and served it as a mousse (hardly birthday-like) somewhat salvaging the dish. Too bad, the flavors were quite good together.
by Barb_N about Bitter chocolate, coffee and cardamom truffle cake from Moro
I thought the preserved lemon (I used a store-bought one) overpowered the spices so I might cut back a bit on that. It was better the second day.
by stockholm28 about Moroccan chicken with green olives & preserved lemons from All About Braising
p. 321 Lovely. Let me start by saying that historically, neither mr bc nor I have been fans of risotto. Reminds me of rice pudding and I usually get tired of eating it...same texture, same flavour bite after bite. That said, we were recently served a great risotto as part of a tasting menu so I thought I'd give a home version a try. MC's appealed for its use of fall ingredients (I'd searched risotto/leeks/butternut squash) in EYB and for its ease of preparation. As Westmintress notes above, the squash is grated (using a food processor) and cooked along with the rice. This was really nice. The leeks and squash imparted a perfect amount of sweetness to the dish. The parmesan balanced that with its salty tang. We served this (well, mr bc had his with...) grilled chicken that I'd basted with a balsamic/roasted garlic glaze. I'd make this again. photos here: http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/841835#9244156
by Breadcrumbs about Butternut squash risotto with pistachios and lemon from Cook This Now
p. 296 - Loved this! Took stockholm's lead and used baby kale. Huge hit at cucina bc! Wouldn't change a thing next time. Photos and more info here: http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/841835#9253413
by Breadcrumbs about Raw kale salad with anchovy-date dressing from Cook This Now
These are not the prettiest of cookies, but they are absolutely delicious. I always make two batches- one just for my sister-in-law and nephew (who still fight over them). I usually double the amount of chocolate used so I can hide the imperfections on the flat side of the cookie.

Mushrooms are not listed as part of this recipe. Nevertheless, I used them.

from the book Apples of Uncommon Character. A snap to prepare. All the crust ingredients are pulsed together in the food processor, as are the filling ingredients. I loved the crust, and I think it would make an excellent dough for crackers served with a creamy triple cream cheese.

A homemade Deviled Ham!
by duckchick about Deviled ham from Southern Bite
This is a nice quick and simple way of making duck à l'orange for just a couple of people. It only takes about 20 minutes and the effort versus results score is high.
by veronicafrance about Duck breasts in orange (Magrets de canard à l'orange) from French Kitchen
I made this on the stovetop instead of in the slow cooker. It was very quick and easy since I had pre-prepped the ingredients. It was a bit one-note for me in the spicing and I added a bit of cayenne to improve it along with lots of cilantro, which was key. That said, my family really loved the dish.

...among the recipes are many clever bits to take away, too, such as this one for making vegetable stock: Grate the vegetables—onions, carrots, celery–before sautéing, to get the most flavor.
