Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Kachin chicken curry

    • chawkins on January 29, 2016

      Healthy, quick, easy and tasty. I used skinned whole drumsticks, did not include the skins for the steaming, did not hack the drumsticks into pieces because my husband does not like bone shards. Steaming time recommended was way too long, even with whole drumsticks, 45 minutes was more than enough.

  • Soy-sake salmon with almond fried rice

    • lkgrover on October 09, 2022

      Delicious salmon & rice with Asian flavors.

  • Hungarian goulash

    • pattyatbryce on January 17, 2022

      Very good flavor. EXCEPT... I thought it had way too much carrot. The sweetness didn't help.

    • Acarroll on November 09, 2021

      I've never had goulash before, but my husband is Hungarian and said it reminded him of his childhood. The flavors were great, but cooking time was way off. When I followed the recipe, the vegetables were still crunchy and the meat was very tough. I simmered on low for several hours to get the meat tender. I didn't add the hot paprika because I didn't have any, but I think a little heat would have been nice.

  • "BLT" mac & cheese

    • jhallen on April 17, 2021

      This is a good recipe, but for me, the kale on top didn’t work out well at all - it became charred and tough and did not taste good with the rest. Also, it fills more than the 9x13 pan called for. Made it a second time without the kale and split it between 2 bake dishes and it was great.
