Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Veggie skillet

    • averythingcooks on August 08, 2022

      This is basically a vegetable rich & really tasty frittata. I scaled it back to 4 eggs (from 6) and this time replaced the potatoes with broccoli as I was planning potatoes as a side already. I cooked as directed but then finished it under the broiler to better melt the cheese. With broccoli, zucchini, colourful peppers, red onions & a final wilting in of baby spinach, this was a great "eggs for dinner option".

  • Pure broccoli soup

    • averythingcooks on August 21, 2022

      So I came here with garden broccoli & onions and then garlic and water, trusting in the idea of "pure broccoli flavour"....and yes - that's what we got. EXCEPT that both of us agreed that we would reach for this soup IF it had more....something. And I remembered a lemon & parmesan version somewhere. It was in FOOD 52's "A New Way to Dinner" and yes...once I amped this up, we both agreed.....way better.

  • Slow cooker pulled pork with overnight slaw

    • averythingcooks on August 24, 2022

      I made only the pork this time and the meat itself was fine at the end of the cook but we were not fans of the resulting sauce. After I removed the meat ( to pull etc) I ran the immersion blender through the sauce and ultimately we decided that it was very flat tasting...after a quick attempt to fix with salt & acid etc I bailed and simply made a BBQ sauce to toss with the meat....a vast improvement. We enjoyed the meat on open faced sandwiches with melty provolone beside a different slaw but I certainly have made better all around pulled pork recipes.

  • Garlic mashed potatoes

    • averythingcooks on August 08, 2022

      Made with skin-on red potatoes and a mix of browned butter & warm milk infused with LOTS of garlic, these deliver on his promise of "real garlicky flavour" in a garlic mash. This time, it was the base for a bowl of pork & vegetable stew and I can think of lots of other reasons to make these delicious potatoes again.

  • Tex-Mex refried beans with bacon

    • averythingcooks on July 12, 2022

      I made a 1/2 recipe which was more than enough for the 2 of us. I used pinto beans and my homemade cayenne sauce. I transferred it from the frying pan it to a small cast iron baker, added cheese to the top and ran it under the broiler. We ate this with tortilla chips as a part of our "snacks for dinner" meal last night and I can see making this again for sure.

  • Whole wheat honey cookies

    • hbakke on August 15, 2022

      Hmm, a bit too "healthy" tasting for my sweet tooth. They are more of a cakey cookie without any chew (which would have been my preference). I'm sure they appeal to certain people, but they are not a repeat for me.
