Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Chicken pot pie

    • julesamomof2 on December 14, 2020

      I hadn't made chicken pot pie in years, so when my daughter requested it I went looking for a new recipe to replace the one I had previously been using as that one had no bottom crust and I definitely wanted an upgrade. This one is a a classic rendition but we all loved it. The only change I made was to make the crust in the food processor to save time (and reduce user error). Leftovers were also very good reheated.

  • Oven-baked cod with wine-herb sauce

    • julesamomof2 on August 03, 2020

      This was good for such little effort. My market didn't have cod so subbed sea bass but might like it better with cod. Served with mashed cauliflower and asparagus. This would make a good 'company' dish.

  • Pumpkin-chocolate chip streusel muffins

    • Summerlandsky on January 06, 2021

      Very tasty! I doubled this recipe, so I could use the whole 15 ounce can of pumpkin. I would add some baking powder to this next time as they didn’t rise as much as I’d like. These do have quite a bit of sugar though. I may experiment next time with changing half of the flour to whole wheat just to make them a smidge healthier. These froze pretty well. The streusel, while super tasty, made freezing them a bit messier.

  • Creamy roasted cauliflower chowder

    • gamulholland on January 29, 2021

      This was delicious, very flavorful and easy to make. I doubled the cheese, and the family declared it the right amount. I also threw in some cooked small pasta at the end because I had some around.

    • hbakke on June 02, 2020

      I added a bit more cheese and replaced the veggie broth with chicken broth. Delicious, comfort food type soup.

  • Sweet and spicy tofu with zucchini noodles

    • hbakke on July 25, 2021

      The sauce was delicious and the orange juice and zest added a nice citrus flavor. I've never had zucchini noodles and had low expectations, but they were still relatively firm and pretty flavorful after cooking. The only change I would make would be to drain the tofu longer and cook it longer to get more crispiness. Overall a tasty dinner. I would make this again.

  • Slow cooker lentil vegetable soup

    • hbakke on December 29, 2020

      I made this in the Instant Pot and followed the recipe pretty closely with the exception of using red lentils instead of green. I didn't really love this. It was thick and mushy and had too much turmeric for my taste. I love a fridge clean out soup, but this had too much going on and not enough texture.

  • Cinnamon streusel French toast

    • hbakke on March 07, 2021

      Not a repeat for me. Far too sweet and the "streusel" is just cinnamon and sugar with a little butter mixed in. The topping caramelizes in the pan and makes a sticky mess and I think the milk/egg ratio was off compared to other recipes for French toast I've made.

  • Bake at 350 by Bridget Edwards

    As I flipped through the cookbook, I must have exclaimed, "Ooooh! I'm making that!" at least a dozen times. And, let me add that the photo of her son (bottom right) is pretty much my aesthetic.
