Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Arequipena potatoes

    • mirage on June 26, 2010

      Very good!

  • Tomato and eggplant torta

    • Lindalib on September 25, 2012

      This dish was blah. Recipe probably should have said to lay eggplant on paper towels after salting to pull out the water. However, it did not and we followed the recipe.

  • Potato pancakes

    • smtucker on February 25, 2013

      russet potato, onion, dried thyme, egg, salt, pepper. NO flour. Not quite as light as she indicated, but worth trying again. Used peanut oil.

  • Roasted corn chowder

    • smtucker on September 14, 2019

      Made to be a main course soup. Roasted corn in a cast iron fry pan on top of the stove [oven was busy.] Used four cups of chicken stock and made corn stock with the cobs for a total of five cups. Added paprika per NE tradition. Next time: less bacon, more corn, 2 cups chicken stock to three cups corn stock, maybe less cream. Very hearty soup. Neither of us could finish one bowl. Make again.

  • Potatoes roasted with summer vegetables

    • Emily Hope on October 12, 2013

      A nice way to use up some summer veggies and potatoes. I added some olives and whole cloves of garlic, plus a little harissa, before roasting, and served with feta on top as a one-dish meal. Delicious.

  • Yukon gold and asiago cakes

    • MollyB on January 02, 2015

      Very good, especially when cooked long enough to get crispy. Great accompaniment to grilled steaks.

    • TBipp on August 17, 2022

      Excellent. Unusual cooking technique as you bring potatoes to a boil and only boil a short time. Potatoes are half done when they are grated. Delicious flavor profile with the Asiago and green olives. I freeze the leftover cakes and enjoy them with eggs in the mornings.

  • Potatoes with crispy greens

    • MollyB on October 25, 2010

      Great dish. Easy and a great accompaniment to the Easy Chicken Confit in the cookbook. The crispy greens are fantastic with the roasted potatoes.

  • Easy chicken "confit"

    • MollyB on October 25, 2010

      A simple but very tasty way to prepare chicken thighs. It's hard to believe that they turn out so well with only salt and pepper as added ingredients. As the cookbook recommends, they are great served with the roasted potatoes and greens on the preceding page.

  • Mom's potato salad

    • MollyB on July 05, 2018

      I love this recipe! I've made many more elaborate and more exciting potato salads, but I always come back to this one. It's a solid, classic potato salad that is perfect for summer barbecues.

  • Smashed potato salad

    • MollyB on September 25, 2020

      Oh, this was good! I made it because I had a lot of russet potatoes and an open jar of hot giardiniera pickles to use up, and it was way better than I expected. It was perfect alongside steak, and would be great alongside just about any simply seasoned grilled meats.

  • Potatoes and string beans

    • MollyB on September 04, 2018

      Great recipe! It was nice to have something green in with the potatoes and eggs. It definitely needs the recommended time to sit and chill - the flavors mellowed and blended after sitting a few hours, where the vinegar flavor was a little too strong right after mixing. Served this with ribs for a barbecue, and I liked it more than the ribs!

  • Potato, leek, and bacon panfry

    • adrienneyoung on August 11, 2011

      pretty good, if you have very good potatoes. Needs good quality ingredients: there's nothing to hide behind.

  • Potato salad with sweet pickles and buttermilk dressing

    • Rinshin on August 17, 2022

      Perfect balance of flavors. This potato salad intrigued me because of shredded radish addition which gives this salad terrific taste and uniqueness. Great use of buttermilk and white wine vinegar. Tastes terrific warm or chilled. Photo added.

  • Creamy heartland potato salad

    • TBipp on August 17, 2022

      This is my favorite potato salad of all time. It's the perfect balance of vinegar and sweet. Guests are amazed that it includes a variety of garden vegetables; however, they provide a nice crunch.
