    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  3/17/2017 at 12:17 AM

    Beef empanadas sounds awesome!

  • AmandaS  on  3/17/2017 at 12:41 AM

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

  • CurlyCozza  on  3/17/2017 at 1:58 AM

    Vegetarian rice paper rolls! Yum....

  • Bluesbird  on  3/17/2017 at 2:21 AM

    Steak and blue cheese pies!

  • tapeitzman  on  3/17/2017 at 5:17 AM

    Indian spiced frittatas

  • e_ballad  on  3/17/2017 at 6:29 AM

    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  3/17/2017 at 6:38 AM

    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  3/17/2017 at 6:59 AM

    Smoked Chicken and Mustard Pie

  • Debkelliemember  on  3/17/2017 at 4:46 PM

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

  • permie_girl  on  3/17/2017 at 4:47 PM

    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  3/17/2017 at 5:11 PM

    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  3/17/2017 at 10:00 PM

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

  • hippiechick1955  on  3/17/2017 at 10:20 PM

    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  3/18/2017 at 9:17 AM

    Asparagus with poached eggs and park cheese. Yum!

  • Karla123  on  3/18/2017 at 10:40 AM

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

  • Redheadedcook  on  3/18/2017 at 4:25 PM

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

  • DimSumMamma  on  3/20/2017 at 12:20 PM

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

  • CarlyJane  on  3/20/2017 at 6:48 PM

    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  3/21/2017 at 9:26 AM

    The Classic potato frittata

  • motherofpearl81  on  3/22/2017 at 7:14 AM

    Chicken and mango finger rolls sounds very interesting!

  • Cati  on  3/22/2017 at 1:50 PM

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

  • matag  on  3/24/2017 at 7:29 AM

    Corn, feta and mint fritters

  • edyenicole  on  3/25/2017 at 8:47 PM

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

  • bstewart  on  3/26/2017 at 7:50 PM

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

  • jo_shayne  on  3/27/2017 at 11:37 PM

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

  • Julia  on  3/28/2017 at 12:43 AM

    Oysters Kilpatrick.

  • sarahawker  on  3/29/2017 at 11:59 AM

    Indian Spiced Frittata

  • lauriesk  on  3/29/2017 at 9:56 PM

    I think learning essentials and techniques is very useful.

  • Suirauqa  on  3/30/2017 at 3:21 AM

    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  3/30/2017 at 5:19 PM

    Shakshuka eggs

  • jd5761  on  3/30/2017 at 9:59 PM

    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  3/31/2017 at 7:06 AM

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

  • Katiefayhutson  on  3/31/2017 at 12:09 PM

    Indian spiced frittata

  • Ingridemery  on  4/1/2017 at 6:15 AM

    Breakfast salad looks amazing!

  • auntietina  on  4/3/2017 at 12:39 AM

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

  • Uhmandanicole  on  4/4/2017 at 4:02 AM

    Fried tomatoes, definitely the fried tomatoes

  • Shana.  on  4/5/2017 at 10:14 PM

    All the recipes look great!

  • margleedham  on  4/7/2017 at 9:22 PM

    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  4/7/2017 at 9:29 PM

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

  • pokarekare  on  4/7/2017 at 9:56 PM

    Crispy bacon because I never quite get it right!

  • gjnmc  on  4/7/2017 at 10:23 PM

    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  4/7/2017 at 11:16 PM

    Coconut dahl . Vegan all the way.

  • carolwatson  on  4/7/2017 at 11:34 PM

    Mussel and zucchini fritters.

  • cherryhen  on  4/8/2017 at 12:32 AM

    Last minute butter chicken - sounds fast & yum!

  • Ingridemery  on  4/8/2017 at 6:07 AM

    The roasted beet and blood orange salad sounds fantastic

  • Roblyn  on  4/8/2017 at 10:04 PM

    Tuscan meatballs sounds great!

  • Bridie  on  4/9/2017 at 2:13 AM

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

  • GregH  on  4/9/2017 at 4:46 AM

    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  4/9/2017 at 6:29 PM

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

  • katietodd  on  4/9/2017 at 7:41 PM

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

  • mdblake2011  on  4/10/2017 at 8:45 PM

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

  • Cattyb  on  4/15/2017 at 6:27 PM

    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  4/16/2017 at 7:56 PM

    Chickpea eggplant salad

  • JanScholl  on  4/18/2017 at 2:13 AM

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

  • mph993  on  4/20/2017 at 9:22 AM

    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  4/20/2017 at 9:50 AM

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

  • pandapotamus  on  4/20/2017 at 11:40 PM

    Chicken larb!
