Notes about Recipes in this site

  • Yellow cake with chocolate frosting

    • Mayandbill on June 09, 2015

      This is a good choc frosting.

  • Nectarine cake

    • blintz on May 24, 2014

      Fast, easy, delicious, not too sweet. I think I over baked it a bit, because it was a little dry on the edges, so keep checking. Needed twice as much fruit as called for in order to cover the whole top of the cake.

  • Easy homemade granola

    • Jane on September 20, 2012

      This granola would be better as a snack rather than a cereal. It clumps together and isn't easy to break up into flakes. I like my granola as a sprinkled topping on my healthy (but boring) bran cereal. This would be clumps rather than sprinkles. But it tastes good (though rather salty, I'd half the salt next time). I think I'm going to stick to my trusty Andy Fairfield's granola from Nigella's Feast.

  • The best broccoli of your life

    • wester on August 18, 2012

      It's good, I can't deny that, but not half as brilliant as Melissa Clark's Broccoli with Shrimp, so the title is definitely wrong. Do not make such over the top claims for a recipe that's fine but no more than that, guys, please.

  • Molly Stevens’ braised monkfish with cherry tomatoes & basil

    • blintz on June 09, 2016

      Monkfish in the fish share this week. This was a delicious recipe and made some mf converts at the dinner table. It took longer to get ready than it should have--maybe it was pancetta cubes. I ditched most of the pork fat before I sauteed the fennel --I didn't want the flavor to overpower the fish. If only I was quicker at removing that slimy membrane off the fillets, I'd cook monkfish more often. Hate that part of the process!

  • Summer nectarine and arugula salad with raspberry vinaigrette

    • imaluckyducky on June 17, 2013

      This salad is both surprising and addicting! The first time I made it as-is, the second time (today) I didn't have any the dressing ingredients, but I discovered that a good-quality balsamic vinaigrette is AMAZING!

  • Marinated roasted cauliflower salad

    • wester on November 26, 2016

      Easy, tasty and versatile. I added a good pinch of cumin to the dressing and served without greens or croutons.

  • Broccoli, rice, and cheddar casserole

    • PennyG on November 29, 2013

      I made this for Thanksgiving yesterday and it was wonderful. Made the soup Wednesday (which was great on its own). I did use two boxes of frozen broccoli and it was fine. Well liked by all!

  • Melissa Clark’s spicy pork stew with hominy and collard greens

    • vickster on February 23, 2019

      This was delicious! Very easy and fast in the Instant Pot. I made half the recipe, with a large can of hominy. Will definitely make again!

  • Almond cake with plums

    • bwehner on July 27, 2013

      Delicious & easy
