Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Lemony roasted beets and arugula with herb cheese

    • southerncooker on August 10, 2020

      Got some nice beets in my farm share so made this for daughter and my lunch. Delicious and the dressing is perfect on this combination and I think would be good for other uses as suggested in book. I couldn't find just argula so I used an argula mix. Instead of making the herb cheese I use a log of goat herb cheese.

  • Parker House rolls

    • stockholm28 on December 27, 2015

      These had good flavor, but unfortunately mine fell in the oven and I ended up with rather flat rolls. Not sure what I did wrong.

  • Creamy potato and garlic soup with pumpernickel croutons

    • breakthroughc on March 20, 2022

      This is lick your bowl clean good. The garlic and potato were perfectly balanced. The texture is rich and luscious. I did not make the croutons as hobby is recovering from dental surgery. Made a great winter dinner, but could also be a starter for a dinner party.

  • Groundnut stew

    • breakthroughc on March 11, 2022

      I have made this vegetarian stew many times. To make it weeknight friendly I reduce the first simmer from 30 minutes to 15, I've made it both ways and can't tell the difference. I also use 2 jalapenos instead of one jalapeno and one hatch chili and it is spicy enough for us.

  • Herb focaccia with ricotta and olives

    • breakthroughc on June 28, 2022

      This was easy and delicious. I don’t bake a lot of yeasted breads and I did not struggle with this recipe or slough . I did not make the pesto, but used some homemade pesto that was in my freezer.
