    Best ever blueberry scones recipe. I have made them so many times. Fast, easy and delicious.

Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Braised red snapper with grandma-style zucchini, peppers, and black olives

    • nicolepellegrini on May 31, 2019

      Tasty and easy - just might tone down the lemon slices and olives if I make again as it was a bit bitter.

  • Chicken cacciatore

    • nicolepellegrini on August 18, 2019

      I was craving cacciatore but wanted to try a different way to make it. I liked that this recipe featured capers and anchovies, instead of just basic peppers, tomatoes and onions as I'm used to. Those elements did add some different flavors to the base and made for a more complex sauce. The lemon was a bit strong for me, so next time I might only add one or two slices to the sauce while cooking. Otherwise it was quite tasty and I did serve it with polenta as suggested.

  • Pork roast with cabbage, apple, and bacon slaw

    • nicolepellegrini on July 17, 2020

      A solid, simple pork recipe. I feel like it could have been even better if brined overnight instead of just for 6 hours. I added some potato wedges to the roasting pan to make it a complete meal with the bacon slaw.

  • Collard greens with ham hocks and garlic

    • nicolepellegrini on June 05, 2020

      This was YUM. Very close to some amazing greens I had in a Soul food restaurant earlier this year that was so good I asked the chef for his recipe (and he delightfully obliged...the only difference between the two is he used smoked turkey necks and this was made with ham hocks.)

  • Green curry chicken

    • jbuchman on May 08, 2017

      Excellent recipe. Chicken takes a bit more time to cook all the way through than recipe suggests. Make plenty of rice to soak up all of the sauce. Can find kaffir lime leaves online-- don't leave them out.

  • Cherry-poppy seed muffins

    • jbuchman on May 08, 2017

      Easy and really good.

  • Blueberry scones with lemon glaze

    • jbuchman on May 08, 2017

      Might be the best scone you'll ever make. Even without the glaze.

  • Chilled asparagus with citrus vinaigrette

    • kateiscoooking on February 17, 2019

      This was very good but probably would have been more successful as part of a salad.

  • Dad's meatloaf with tomato relish

    • Nkrieda78 on August 26, 2018

      I’ve cooked this recipe many times over the year along with Tyler’s garlic mashed potatoes. Really solid recipe, great comfort food.
