Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Chicken pot pie with flaky butter herb pastry

    • averythingcooks on December 26, 2018

      I made this to take to my father in law for Christmas Eve dinner. For the filling I substituted an equal weight mix of chopped celery & parsnips for the rutabaga (that I will NOT eat) and used chicken breasts. The pastry seemed fussy to make compared to my usual recipes but it was really tasty and flakey crisp! I have now added this LARGE pot pie to my collection with Jamie Oliver's and Barefoot Contessa's chicken pot pies.

  • Slow cooker butter chicken

    • Gio on June 06, 2016

      Tasty rendition of this popular recipe. Timing was fine at Low for 6 1/2 hours, plus 40 minutes for the chicken. We used boneless thighs. Will make again increasing the chili powder, cumin, and garlic.

  • Slow cooker pulled pork

    • Breadcrumbs on March 14, 2016

      While we enjoyed this rendition of pulled pork it isn’t special enough to warrant repeating. Pulled pork is all about the sauce and this one just didn’t seem to be as thick or flavourful as other versions I’ve made. There’s plenty leftover for me to play with additions and we’ll see if I can build out the flavours a little.

  • Singapore noodles

    • Breadcrumbs on March 03, 2016

      p. 254 – What I made was a mash-up of this recipe and the Serious Eats version. The latter compared a variety of recipes to come up with what they felt was the “best” version. With the modifications I made here, I feel I’ve now found a recipe for a version that comes closest to those I so enjoy when travelling to Hong Kong. I use a whole red pepper, I add snow or sugar snap peas, I increase the curry powder to 3 tsp (stir-frying the additional tsp into the veggies and the remainder into the noodles). I also use a modified version of the sauce from the Serious Eats version and I skip the regular onion which tends to get slimy and instead I increase the amount of green onions. Finally, I drizzle sesame oil and spritz some lime atop the finished dish. Photo here: http://www.chowhound.com/post/show-winter-2016-meals-1030300?commentId=9818039

    • chawkins on November 04, 2018

      I used about half of the dried noodle asked for, increased the amount of pork, because I needed to use up the remain of my smoked pork shoulder, increased the amount of curry powder by 50% and skipped the turmeric. The end result was very good.

  • Classic crêpes

    • Zosia on July 23, 2018

      This is my go-to crepe recipe. The batter is quite thin and the crepes are tender but not so delicate that they're difficult to flip or stuff etc...

  • Wholesome whole grain waffles

    • sosayi on September 13, 2018

      The flavor on these is good and the amount of whole grains (using the 12-grain flour) was definitely what I was looking for. The end product, though, had some issues: the waffles themselves were very delicate and hard to get out of the waffle maker without tearing; they oddly split in half horizontally when you attempt to cut through them, as you're eating (probably due to the delicate nature of the final product). I'd probably not make these again.
