Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Flaky spinach pie

    • Cheri on March 06, 2011

      This is very good. A labor of love, as prep takes about an hour, with each layer of fillo. Made 1/2 recipe. Yummy.

    • Cheri on March 06, 2011

      Served with glazed carrots and chicken paillards with capers and lemon. Good combination.

  • Gingery peach-a-berry cobbler

    • beetlebug on October 09, 2015

      Huge hit for bbq. Loved the addition of the blueberries to go with the peaches.

  • Soothing miso soup with shiitake mushrooms

    • PennyG on October 11, 2013

      I am feeling a bit under the weather and had all the ingredients to make this. It was very tasty and soothing. A bowl full of tasty healthfulness!

  • Roasted cherry tomatoes

    • PennyG on January 02, 2015

      Hmmmm ... no, this had nice flavor, but not for me. The texture was too soft and one dimensional. Perhaps would be good along with other roasted vegetables for a contrast in texture. I will mash the leftovers into some sort of pasta topping.

    • PennyG on January 03, 2015

      This is an update to my previous note (yesterday) - I mushed these up and added a bit of EVOO, red wine vinegar, Italian herb seasoning & salt and used as a pasta topping. It was really tasty. So much so that I might roast these tomatoes again just to use on pasta!

  • Fluffy lemon quinoa

    • PennyG on January 02, 2015

      This was a great side dish! The lemon really made it pop.

  • Pumpkin-applesauce muffins

    • dinnermints on December 13, 2015

      Big bodacious muffins with lots of flavor - would definitely make again. I made some changes: substituted half of the white flour for whole wheat pastry flour, used 3/4 cup currants + 3/4 cup toasted walnuts instead of raisins, used 1/4 cup of butter (browned it first) and 1/4 cup of canola oil. I had orange juice on hand and used that instead of apple juice. Also, in order to use all of the batter, I filled the muffin tins VERY full, not the 2/3 recommended in the recipe.
