Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Oven-fried chicken wings

    • stef on April 14, 2018

      The chicken wings came out nice and crispy without frying

  • Indian-style chicken curry

    • stef on June 15, 2020

      This was spiced just right for our taste and quick to make

  • Everyday pad Thai

    • stef on April 14, 2018

      This required a lot of bowls. Didn't see the point of the 4 dried shrimp. They just disappeared. The pad Thai lover in my family loved it

  • New England bar pizza

    • Rinshin on July 29, 2018

      When I first read about this style of pizza I was very skeptical, but often when I am I go ahead and make the recipe in question. Sometimes they turn out awful and other times they turn out great. This one turned out super great. I really liked the texture of the dough - more like Neapolitan style of soft dough which made soft but crispy on the edges bottom. The sauce was very tasty. I used home grown tomatoes instead of canned one in the recipe and added 2 cloves of garlic. The sauce too reminded me of some Neapolitan style of sauce. The style of pizza certainly have more cheese though and my husband said it reminded him of cheezits flavor (combo cheddar and mozzarella). I added salame, Italian sausage and sliced onion. The cooking time was only off by 2 min. I used the dough setting on my bread machine for making dough. Made two 10-inch pizzas. What a great and easy recipe.

      This was quick to put together but you have to remember that the dough rise takes time. Nice dough to handle. For 4 people it makes a nice lunch not supper or a snack.

      I should have said a nice lunch or snack
