Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Cumin and chili roasted sweet potato wedges

    • hillsboroks on January 04, 2022

      This method of roasting sweet potatoes was easy, fast and yielded a new delicious side dish. The spice rub of cumin, garlic powder and chili powder was perfect, not overbearing but rather a nice complement to the sweet potatoes. I would have given this 5 stars if the wedges were a bit crispier on the outside but I will definitely make these again.

  • Cheddar and scallion drop biscuits

    • Rinshin on May 11, 2022

      Perfectly tasty biscuits. Almost as simple as mixing pancakes and easier because these are baked. The texture is light even when cooled and I can taste both cheddar and green onions. Good accompaniment to soups or sliced in half with ham. Photo added.

  • Roasted broccoli with shallots and fennel seeds

    • Skamper on May 23, 2020

      We both liked this. I made an approximate half recipe.

  • Garlicky broccolini

    • Skamper on September 22, 2020

      Good but not a standout. Could have used another minute in the covered pan.

  • Slow-cooker mushroom biryani

    • Skamper on October 20, 2020

      We both enjoyed this and it was pretty quick and easy. The note said it would only work in a traditional slow cooker, but it worked fine in my instant pot on slow cooker mode. I followed the directions about microwaving the onions, etc, but next time would try sauteing them in the IP as well. I used brown basmati rice and it was done when I checked after 90 minutes on high.

  • Rustic bread stuffing with fennel and pine nuts

    • Skamper on November 27, 2020

      Good but not amazing. Made a half batch. Too many onions.

  • Potato gratin with leeks and fennel

    • Skamper on December 27, 2021

      Very good side dish for ham. I scaled this down for a smaller number of servings, using approximately one third the amounts called for, and baked in an 8x8 pan. I did the initial bake earlier in the day and the final 30 minutes while the ham rested.

  • Barley with celery and miso dressing

    • Skamper on August 17, 2020

      We loved this. Great flavor. Made a half batch. Barley took about 38 minutes. Used regular rice vinegar. Good at room temperature.

  • Roasted Brussels sprouts with bacon and pecans

  • Fresh corn salad

    • cpandrew on July 06, 2022

      I liked the suggestion to salt and drain the tomatoes in a colander before adding to salad. I will use this hint in other dishes with tomatoes.

  • Braised red potatoes with lemon and chives

    • Liz_Young on July 06, 2022

      These were good, the flavor was mild. Not a quick recipe. I have other potato recipes that I like better.
