    I want to make Breakfast salad (page 12) from Essential Annabel Langbein, Volume One: Savory: Best-Ever Meals for Busy Lives by Annabel Langbein

  • RVoigt  on  March 17, 2017

    Beef empanadas sounds awesome!

  • AmandaS  on  March 17, 2017

    Always keen to learn tips and tricks to keep the cooking passion alive with tasty new recipes to add to the staples.

  • CurlyCozza  on  March 17, 2017

    Vegetarian rice paper rolls! Yum….

  • Bluesbird  on  March 17, 2017

    Steak and blue cheese pies!

  • tapeitzman  on  March 17, 2017

    Indian spiced frittatas

  • e_ballad  on  March 17, 2017

    The "Barbecued crayfish with curry butter" sounds utterly decadent & would be perfect for the balmy weather that's struck us here in Victoria. My belly is rumbling simply at the idea of it!

  • obbigttam  on  March 17, 2017

    Horseradish slaw has my tastebuds interested – love my veges and love my heat, and I can see this going so well with my other love of BBQ.

  • lhudson  on  March 17, 2017

    Smoked Chicken and Mustard Pie

  • Debkelliemember  on  March 17, 2017

    Mexican shrimp cocktail – the old fashioned favourite is getting lots of "makeovers"!

  • permie_girl  on  March 17, 2017

    I don't need to go past the first recipe in the list – I adore black beans so it would have to be Baleadas with black beans.

  • dirtgirl  on  March 17, 2017

    It would have to be Rib-sticking Pea and Ham soup P.72, especially with the cooler/wet weather already hitting us, an ideal soul warmer.

  • jezpurr  on  March 17, 2017

    Alot of these recipes sound look really good!!!^_^

  • hippiechick1955  on  March 17, 2017

    I like the title. It isn't necessary to give a cookbook a fancy title – the subtitle on this book says it all. I'd buy it just for that!

    Everything sounds delicious in the index and the horseradish slaw has this pescatarian / mostly vegetarian mouth watering.

  • cocecitycook  on  March 18, 2017

    Asparagus with poached eggs and park cheese. Yum!

  • Karla123  on  March 18, 2017

    I love plant-based meals, so I would easily try the "vegetable and tofu stir-fry."

  • Redheadedcook  on  March 18, 2017

    I'd like to try "this is how I make spring rolls"

  • DimSumMamma  on  March 20, 2017

    Wow! so many to choose from. I would want to make one of the many sauces… and the bean and kale soup.

  • CarlyJane  on  March 20, 2017

    Excellent, I think its so important to learn about what produce is in season & how best to use it. Ive always been such a fan of Annabel's cookbooks, so beautiful & packed with colour.

  • niniacedo  on  March 21, 2017

    The Classic potato frittata

  • motherofpearl81  on  March 22, 2017

    Chicken and mango finger rolls sounds very interesting!

  • Cati  on  March 22, 2017

    With more than 700 savoury recipes hard to know where to start. I will start with the No stir risottos.

  • matag  on  March 24, 2017

    Corn, feta and mint fritters

  • edyenicole  on  March 25, 2017

    I love it! It's nice to see a different take on a cookbook.

  • bstewart  on  March 26, 2017

    I *love* baba ganoush so the smoked version would be high on my list!

  • jo_shayne  on  March 27, 2017

    Slow-braised lamb raan – with my own farm-raised Wiltipoll – so good!

  • Julia  on  March 28, 2017

    Oysters Kilpatrick.

  • sarahawker  on  March 29, 2017

    Indian Spiced Frittata

  • lauriesk  on  March 29, 2017

    I think learning essentials and techniques is very useful.

  • Suirauqa  on  March 30, 2017

    My first Annabel cookbook I purchased, More Taste than Time, is still my most go to cookbook. Love Annabels methodologies for cooking of foods.

  • anastasiiap  on  March 30, 2017

    Shakshuka eggs

  • jd5761  on  March 30, 2017

    Essential for me is about going back to things that really matter (not 63 ingredients you've never heard of). Cooking and eating seasonally helps too. I like the look of several of the fritters – always a classic!

  • Ordinaryblogger  on  March 31, 2017

    Sometimes I find the tips BETTER than recipes because they give me independence and skills to become a better cook.

  • Katiefayhutson  on  March 31, 2017

    Indian spiced frittata

  • Ingridemery  on  April 1, 2017

    Breakfast salad looks amazing!

  • auntietina  on  April 3, 2017

    I am less concerned with the title of a book than the content, and how it is organized.

  • Uhmandanicole  on  April 4, 2017

    Fried tomatoes, definitely the fried tomatoes

  • Shana.  on  April 5, 2017

    All the recipes look great!

  • margleedham  on  April 7, 2017

    I'd love to try the pork and prawn spring rolls as I love eating them but have never tried making them myself!

  • reneeg  on  April 7, 2017

    Everything looks so good. I want to make them all but am going to try the chicken fajitas first.

  • pokarekare  on  April 7, 2017

    Crispy bacon because I never quite get it right!

  • gjnmc  on  April 7, 2017

    There are lots of great recipes I would try, but as it is cooling down here I'd go the Rib-sticking pea and ham soup.

  • ChefYvonne  on  April 7, 2017

    Coconut dahl . Vegan all the way.

  • carolwatson  on  April 7, 2017

    Mussel and zucchini fritters.

  • cherryhen  on  April 8, 2017

    Last minute butter chicken – sounds fast & yum!

  • Ingridemery  on  April 8, 2017

    The roasted beet and blood orange salad sounds fantastic

  • Roblyn  on  April 8, 2017

    Tuscan meatballs sounds great!

  • Bridie  on  April 9, 2017

    I love books that teach me stuff – and i would make the indian spiced frittata

  • GregH  on  April 9, 2017

    It should give a clear view of what to expect , and the recieps's are still the essence for the interest in the book

  • kerrigans  on  April 9, 2017

    I like the title. I could always use tips on techniques and cooking styles, braising, roasting, etc…

  • katietodd  on  April 9, 2017

    The Asian prawn omelette sounds like an essential addition to my repertoire!

  • mdblake2011  on  April 10, 2017

    Shakshuka Eggs: always looking for interesting ways to use my home grown eggs. My produce, Annabel's inspiration for a great combo.

  • Cattyb  on  April 15, 2017

    I'm on a big frugality drive so I'm really interested in all the vegetarian but hearty vegetarian meals as we move into winter here in Oz. The meal- in-a-bowl ticks portion control and presentation boxes – love the sound of the Buddha Bowl!

  • nicki.williams  on  April 16, 2017

    Chickpea eggplant salad

  • JanScholl  on  April 18, 2017

    fried spiced tomatoes as soon as my garden produces the tomatoes.

  • mph993  on  April 20, 2017

    I think they can teach you how to cook if they give a good description of what the dish should taste and look like.

  • lebarron2001  on  April 20, 2017

    I enjoy learning techniques because I generally improvise in recipes anyway.

  • pandapotamus  on  April 20, 2017

    Chicken larb!
