Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Curried cream of broccoli soup

    • mamacrumbcake on November 07, 2015

      This soup is really delicious and satisfying, one of my very favorite soups.it is very easy to make too!

  • Puréed split pea soup

    • mharriman on October 25, 2018

      A decades old family favorite. Made this again today with my new Vitamix blender and results were not as good as pureeing using my old hand held blender. This soup is very, very thick, and today it was a pudding consistency. I had to add lots and lots of water at end to make it palate worthy. With a Vitamix blender, ingredients need tweaking. The flavors and healthy ingredients still make it a Fall/Winter worthy recipe. Served with a baguette.

  • Lentil and brown rice soup

    • LeslieS on February 21, 2011

      Page 344

  • Mexican zucchini soup

    • mharriman on November 18, 2017

      I love this soup, especially when I use a half cup of 2% milk and half cup of half and half, 1 tablespoon of butter (instead of one teaspoon) to melt onions, and increase Monterrey Jack cheese cubes to 4 ounces. I used corn on the cob kernels last night when I discovered I had no frozen corn. Worked well. An easy, fast, and tasty vegetable soup. Served with tortilla chips and beer.

  • Colcannon

  • Eggplant-stuffed "ravioli"

    • Lindalib on September 20, 2013

      We liked even though we didn't put in a wonton wrap.

  • Chicken enchiladas

  • Couscous with chicken

    • ellabee on November 05, 2014

      p. 432. Have always made this with cubed lamb, and am still pleasantly surprised by how well it evokes the first couscous I ever ate, in Paris -- has the same vegetables and apparently a similar blend of spices.

  • Bulgur-beef balls

    • Vicoxn on June 01, 2011

      After browning, requires less cooking time--30 minutes, as opposed to 1 hour.

  • Nutty asparagus salad

    • ricki on May 18, 2018

      Very nice -- good flavor and refreshing. With the addition of more nuts, or maybe hard-boiled eggs, it could be a main dish. I'll be making this again, but will cut back on the lemon juice, vinegar, and sugar in the dressing since the grapefruit left a lot of liquid in the bottom of the bowl.

  • Potato and green bean salad

    • Lindalib on August 26, 2012

      Quick, easy and nice flavours. I included a few cherry tomatoes we had hanging around although they're not part of the recipe. Would make this again.

  • Pumpkin bread

    • mharriman on November 19, 2017

      Good rather than great. I use Libby’s canned pumpkin and have used the Libby’s online pumpkin bread recipe which produces a very rich and super moist bread. This version isn’t nearly as rich or moist but satisfying. The ingredients tell me that even though it’s not as satisfying to the sweet tooth, it’s healthier.

  • "Grate" zucchini bread

    • AnneG on September 06, 2012

      Made 9/2012 into muffins; easy, good flavor.
