Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Mexican chorizo

    • twoyolks on May 24, 2018

      A really nice chorizo with a lot of depth of flavor. A bit different than a "standard" chorizo but I really liked it.

  • Grilled carrot hot dogs with lamb-neck mole

    • babyfork on February 09, 2017

      This was pretty amazing! I was skeptical about the carrots taking on the flavor of the herbs and spices, but it worked! I poured in cold filtered water and baked for 1 hour and 10 minutes and the consistency of the carrots was perfect; cooked through, but not falling apart. I added some more chocolate to the mole and also simmered longer. I refrigerated and reheated the next day and simmered more and added the juice of one lime, but not the chopped shallot. I would advise making this the night before to let the flavors marry. I wasn't wild about the taste of the mole, so served separately and let people add the shredded braised lamb and sauce with mole as they liked. We topped with avocado, cherry tomatoes, crème fraîche, cilantro, scallions, pickled jalapeno, and French's fried onions. I meant to put out queso fresco and shredded sharp cheddar too, but forgot. When the mole was mixed with everything on the carrot dogs it was really good. Winner!

  • Pizza sausage

    • meginyeg on February 02, 2021

      I made this but I heavily edited it due to some ingredients not being possible to get. It was still really good. I really like the texture the cream cheese added, When the grocery stores have more fresh herbs like basil, oregano, etc I will try again as I think the dried didn't do a great job of replicating the flavor that is suppose to come through. The flavour is definitely reminiscent of pepperoni though.
