Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Gravlax

    • smtucker on August 07, 2010

      Can't find this recipe in the book.

  • Buttermilk pancakes

    • smtucker on November 07, 2015

      Made with Kate's buttermilk. Absolutely wonderful. Whole family enjoyed. Added an additional 1/4 cup buttermilk to get the correct consistency.

    • Snadra on March 11, 2012

      These are my go-to pancakes. Simple and only five ingredients with no greasy metallic baking powder taste. However, they do come out quite thick, so it's worth adding a bit more buttermilk if you want a thinner batter.

  • Endive au gratin

    • okcook on December 26, 2012

      Swiss or Gruyere cheese is also a required ingredient

  • Brandied sweet potatoes

    • lorinave on October 10, 2010

      This is an awesome dish-added it at

  • Cod Provencale

    • jhappel on January 08, 2012

      Excellent. Fennel flavor is very good.

  • Minute steaks in parsley butter

    • jbuchman on July 10, 2017

      Classic cube steak recipe. Easy and quick. The parsley butter is great.

  • Lemon cake

    • okmosa on April 18, 2021

      I was looking for a lemon cake, one that screams lemon. This recipe does not. I suspected as much with the ingredients including the juice of only one lemon. So I made up for it as best I could by squeezing straight lemon juice over the top then slathering it with a very lemony powdered sugar glaze. And, as with most older baked dessert recipes, I should have added some salt to the batter. Finally, there were no instructions how to prepare the loaf pan so I sprayed it very lightly to avoid a greasy exterior. Of course, the bottom stuck. ;)

  • Chicken and spinach crepes

    • Yildiz100 on May 23, 2019

      Made exactly as written. Very indulgent-uses so much fat, but fabulously delicious. The butter seemed particularly excessive but the final result was deliciously brown-buttery so it was worth it. Too rich for everyday, but worth it now and then.

  • Scotch shortbread

    • Yildiz100 on December 02, 2018

      The middle had a stodgy texture. The edges, which had browned a bit, were quite nice, but the recipe instructions do say it should not be browned. Fine, but because of the texture issue and uncertain instructions, I would try something else before repeating this.

  • Potted beef, Italian style

  • Cranberry-apple sauce

    • srhoads0 on November 19, 2019

      Too sweet. Improved by making homemade apple sauce w/blueberries and running through the blender before mixing

  • Herbed tomato salad

  • German lebkuchen

    • Lsblackburn1 on December 23, 2020

      Love the taste of these, but man are they sticky! Impossible to cut nicely and get out of the tray, which is kind of a bummer for gifting. Not sure if I made a mistake or what, but I will have to keep searching for lebkuchen recipes!

  • Russian borscht

    • Lsblackburn1 on February 04, 2019

      Easy to make and so hearty, healthy and delicious. I needed to use up some baby back ribs so used those instead of beef and used Savoy cabbage instead of regular.

  • Baked acorn squash

    • angrygreycat on September 28, 2018

      Perfectly fine, super easy preparation of acorn squash.

  • Bacon muffins

    • angrygreycat on July 27, 2019

      Made these for book club - very simple recipe with a base batter that then allows you to differentiate for bacon or cheese or other variations. Raised beautifully. A nice option when I want to take something savory rather than sweet.
