Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Paper-thin semolina cracker sheets (Carte di musica)

    • krista_jo on May 24, 2020

      Easy to make if you are experienced with fresh pasta, and a very satisfactory crunch. Highly customizable too. A new go-to recipe.

  • Spicy red lentil dip

    • BethNH on March 09, 2019

      Made to take to an impromptu beer tasting. Once the lentils are cooked the entire dip comes together in a few minutes. I doubled the harissa because I felt like it needed more kick. This is quite good and my husband plans to bring some for his work lunches. As the recipe states, this is easier and smoother than hummus.

  • Soda water crackers with alder smoked salt

    • okcook on February 15, 2018

      These did not work for us. Followed the instructions to a T. Baked as instructed to a max of eight minutes. They were raw in the centre. Baked and baked and baked in all 12 more minutes. Still seemed under done in centre and light brown all over. Cooled on racks. Put back in a 130f oven for 40 min and still soft in the centre. A bust.

  • Flax seed pizza crackers

    • moppe on March 09, 2015

      Very nice pizza "junk food" flavor for such a healthy cracker! I had to substitute chickpea flour, because all I had was gari. I don't think it matters what kind of flour you use, it worked just fine.

  • Swedish caraway rye crisps

    • moppe on March 09, 2015

      Delicious! They were a bit sweet though, if that's not your thing, or maybe use a little bit less sugar.

    Ivy clearly thought outside the box by experimenting with alternative and whole grain flours and carefully choosing the ingredients in the dips, she has created a book that addresses everyone’s needs.

  • Robin Asbell's Real Food Digest

    I was completely won over by her approach, as she points out that most crackers have plenty of questionable additives, and then proceeds to make your favorite flavors using whole, natural ingredients.
