Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Sesame chicken with stir-fried cabbage and snow peas

    • Gio on September 24, 2015

      Pg. 108. This is a basic stir-fry recipe that results in a reasonable facsimile of an Asian stir-fry. Not spicy. I made several adjustments: Instead of cooking chicken breasts specifically for the recipe I used the remains of a cooked rotisserie chicken, and omitted the snow peas - instead I slivered a large purple onion. I included 3 garlic cloves, crushed red pepper flakes, and chopped scallions for garnish. Also served was a chopped salad with a Vietnamese dressing, and steamed brown basmati rice. Great meal!

  • Teriyaki-style chicken

    • Gio on September 24, 2015

      Pg. 110. Full of savory flavor and definitely a repeatable recipe. I used bone-in pork loin chops not chicken. They worked beautifully following the easy directions.

  • Barley pilaf with mushrooms

    • Gio on March 10, 2016

      Pg. 138. Love this cookbook, love this recipe. We diced the onion and used chicken broth instead of water, both of which I suppose upped the flavor quotient, but I would do that again. And, there will be a next time. It's quite filling so was more than adequate as a companion to a spicy stir-fried cabbage and egg combination.

  • Acorn squash in honey bourbon sauce

    • Gio on October 30, 2015

      Pg. 153. Sweet-savory side dish. Would make an easy and delicious addition to any cold weather holiday meal. Although acorn is the squash here which we used, I think butternut would do as well.

  • Tomato, cucumber, and feta salad

    • Gio on June 06, 2016

      Pg. 165. Carefree little salad, almost a relish, that is as flavorful as it is refreshing. Simple vinaigrette is just enough and perfect here.

  • Garlic and lemon roast chicken thighs

    • Gio on September 24, 2015

      Pg. 111. Love this! Doubled the recipe. Used mortar and pestle for the garlic mash, Bragg's Aminos instead of salt, and served the lemon wedges. Highly recommend.

    • aeader on June 07, 2020

      This will be a repeat - quick to prepare and very nice flavor. I used boneless skinless thighs. After removing the chicken from the marinade, I whisked in a little olive oil and then tossed some baby potatoes in it. Put the potatoes in a roasting dish and placed the chicken on top. Roasted at 425 for 35 mins.

    • JKDLady on November 06, 2014

      My entire family loved this dish, and it was so easy. This is definitely a go-to recipe for busy nights. I didn't bother to purée the garlic with the lemon juice, et al. This would have required more cleanup than necessary for this recipe. I simple chopped the garlic very finely. I also boiled the marinade and drizzled it over rice.

  • Chicken roasted with potatoes, peppers, and shallots

    • aeader on December 04, 2021

      Great one pan meal, would make this again. I made it in a cast iron skillet and used 4 chicken leg quarters. Didn't need the broth, there was enough liquid left in the pan to reduce into sauce.

  • Mustard and dill biscuits

    • JKDLady on November 15, 2015

      These were quite interesting. We liked the flavor, but the crunch/grit of the mustard seeds were terrible. It was like eating sand.

  • Braised chicken with artichoke hearts and sun-dried tomatoes

    • mamacrumbcake on June 05, 2016

      This is one of our favorites. It's easy and casual and very, very tasty. The artichokes, basil, and sun-dried tomato make a generous amount of sauce that is very attractive and delicious with bread, pasta, or rice. It's the kind of dish that's perfect for having people over because everyone likes it and it's not intimidating or fussy.

  • Red cabbage and green apple coleslaw

    • mamacrumbcake on July 27, 2016

      This coleslaw was satisfactory--it tasted fine, everyone ate it, no one complained. But no one really loved it either. The flavors were a bit muted and not as sweet as I thought it would be. If the sweet and sour were increased, it would be a better coleslaw--probably needs a little more salt too.

  • Orange sweet potato soup

    • Karen_S. on December 06, 2017


  • Pasta with bell peppers, goat cheese, and basil

    • sdeathe on September 30, 2021

      Good, different flavours, but not fabulous. Something doesn't work as well as I'd like, but I don't know what. Perhaps the olives. I had just one pepper (red - looked good), and that seemed like plenty. A second pepper might overwhelm .

  • Chicken livers with apple, onion, and Calvados
