Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Blueberry sweet rolls with lemon glaze

    • julesamomof2 on January 10, 2021

      These were a delicious, lemony and not too sweet alternative to cinnamon rolls. The dough worked perfectly, I would use this sweet dough for other uses as well as it was super easy to work with.

  • Chicken pecan asparagus casserole

    • julesamomof2 on January 09, 2021

      I chose to make this because I had all the ingredients on hand and was intrigued as I'd never heard of the dish. This had layers of crust, chicken, asparagus, and cheese and while we had our doubts it turned out to be quite delicious. I followed the instructions to let it sit for 30 minutes coming out of the oven and was rewarded with perfect slices. I'm not sure I'll rush to make it again just because it was a bit rich for everyday, but was fun to try.

  • Classic cheesecake

    • Cooks0308 on January 05, 2021

      I hadn't made cheesecake in a long time, and it came out pretty well. Very smooth and did not crack or anything. The only thing is that the taste was pretty mellow - not too much cheesecake flavor, I think because it calls for 1 1/2 cups of heavy cream. Maybe next time I'll try cutting back on the cream.

  • Homemade pizza dough

    • averythingcooks on June 22, 2022

      A very tasty pizza dough that resulted in a light yet beautifully crispy crust. I am a bit low on bread flour and so I used about a 50:50 mix of bread & Tipo 00 flour which worked well (although most sources do say that the gluten level in Canadian all purpose also makes it a good stand in for US bread flour). This is one of the few I've made which compares favourably to my usual Barefoot Contessa recipe and I would make this again if I intended to use my large stoneware pan as I did last night.

  • Jo's marinara sauce

    • averythingcooks on September 15, 2020

      I made this “new to me” marinara for use in a couple of dishes coming this week. It called for red onions and lots of fresh herbs which helped my choice but I feel like it is too heavy on the tomato paste. And because of that, I find myself fussing with a little sugar, more salt (including a parm rind) and some basil pesto to achieve a more balanced sauce. It will certainly get used as planned but not sure I’ll repeat this one.

  • Garlic knots

    • averythingcooks on June 19, 2022

      This dough came together beautifully and was very easy to handle (ie forming the knots). The garlic / parsley butter (be generous!) adds tons of flavour and I finished with a good sprinkle of fleur de sel. Served warm beside a big Cobb salad, they pretty much disappeared.

  • Crostini

    • averythingcooks on July 03, 2022

      Sometimes it's more about looking for a method than an actual recipe and this method worked. I've seen so many versions with different oven temps (or the broiler) , flip / don't flip etc. A brush with olive oil, seasoning with S & P and 425 for 10 minutes (with a 1/2 time flip) leaves me happy to serve my fresh tomato & garden basil bruschetta on these little guys.

  • Fajita seasoning

    • averythingcooks on June 04, 2021

      This is a great little mix to throw together from the spice cupboard and it's easy to heat up based on your preferences. I used it to season both the beef and the veg for some very tasty fajitas.

  • Taco seasoning

    • averythingcooks on November 24, 2020

      I needed a taco seasoning and this fit the bill. I have different chili powders to choose from & so used a mix of hot and mild. I just tasted the chicken breast that was coated in this and pan roasted - it is good :)

  • Everything bagel seasoning

    • averythingcooks on March 15, 2021

      I made this to top some homemade bagels and it was really tasty. It did not call for black sesame seeds which many recipes do and I would have had to leave them out anyways :) Of course this is pretty simple stuff but the ingredient ratios given worked for us and I will use this one again.

  • Creamy chicken poblano soup

    • averythingcooks on July 09, 2022

      This was a very tasty soup. As usual, I held some broth back back and might cut back even more next time..... or perhaps I just didn't use enough vegetables? The creamy base (I used the blender) was good but a bit "one note"...a splash of pickled jalapeno brine solved that. As I wanted a slightly more substantial dinner soup, I added grated cheddar & Monterey jack and fresh corn with the chunks of chicken. T also suggested that some potato would have been good. We both enjoyed this soup and I can see repeating this for sure with some additional ideas to personalize it.

  • Potato salad

    • averythingcooks on October 14, 2020

      This was a good simple potato salad (which is what I wanted). I used some thin skinned Yukon golds in place of the reds and more celery than called for. We both did agree that the dressing was heavy on the yellow mustard & felt it needed a hit of sweet to offset that......I would whisk in some honey or sugar next time. Also, I cut everything in 1/2 (except the celery) but I seem to have tons of unused dressing left over (and I feel like I do use a lot). Am I imagining reading MANY comments throughout EYB where lots of different salad recipes result in a large excess of dressing??

  • Philly cheesesteaks

    • averythingcooks on June 04, 2021

      I scaled this back by 1/2 and I used / did everything as described (including her homemade fajita seasoning).... but then used the meat, veg & cheese to make fajitas instead of sandwiches as I had a couple of flour tortillas to finish off. I prepped all the ingredients early in the day and so it was super quick to cook at dinnertime, I served the fajitas with a Mexican street corn salad and it was an easy and very tasty dinner.

  • Sunday pot roast

    • anya_sf on November 09, 2021

      Simple but good, like my mother used to make. I cooked a 3 lb roast with proportionately less salt and pepper and sprinkled flaky salt on top at the end. The roast was definitely done after 3.5 hrs.

  • Honey garlic chicken with pineapple

    • anya_sf on November 13, 2021

      I should have read the recipe more closely before making it - I expected the sauce to be reduced or used as a glaze, but instead only 1/4 of it was glazed on the chicken and the rest was meant to just be mixed with the cooked vegetables. After tasting it, I decided to spoon some over the vegetables before broiling them. I also roasted a separate sheet pan of green beans and spooned some sauce on those as well, mixing them with everything else at the end. We liked this OK that way, but it was still pretty sweet. No one wanted the extra sauce. I liked it better with some Sriracha.

    • hbakke on February 15, 2021

      This was good, if a little too sweet. The apple cider vinegar offset the sweetness of the pineapple, honey, and ketchup a bit, but I would reduce the honey or ketchup next time and probably cook the sauce. Overall, this was an easy weeknight dinner that I would make again.

  • Beef Stroganoff

    • anya_sf on November 20, 2021

      Tasty and super saucy - plenty for more beef and/or mushrooms (I would opt for more mushrooms). My beef wasn't the best and probably would have turned out better cut into strips rather than cubes.

  • Southern sweet potato casserole

    • anya_sf on November 26, 2021

      Sweet potato casserole is not my thing, but my husband thought this was a solid version of this dish. To me it's way too sweet to be a side dish, but if I didn't think of it that way, I thought the flavors were good and I liked the cornflake topping. Unfortunately the marshmallows caught fire under the broiler almost immediately. I scraped them off (sadly removing some of the cornflake topping) and tried again with the dish further from the heat, and the marshmallows were still almost too brown in about 5 seconds.

  • Cilantro lime rice

    • anya_sf on November 02, 2021

      With canned chicken broth (not low-sodium), no additional salt was needed. The rice turned out perfectly using exactly 1 14.5-oz can broth. I used lemon and parsley instead of lime and cilantro, a delicious variation. Just 1 Tbsp butter at the end made it buttery enough for us. In our house this just served 3.

    • hbakke on April 28, 2021

      We both liked this rice as an accompaniment to this book's Chicken street tacos. The rice was nicely buttery and limey. Yum!

  • Chicken street tacos

    • hbakke on April 28, 2021

      Tasty weeknight taco recipe. I used chicken thighs in place of the chicken breasts. I lightly cooked (a little char) the corn tortillas over the stove's gas flame and liked the resulting flavor/texture. The corn, cheese, and onion mix is pretty tangy from the pickling liquid and the lime juice, but we both liked it. I would make this again.

  • Coffee cake

    • Running_with_Wools on May 30, 2022

      I made this with cup for cup gluten free flour and at altitude (7,200 feet) and it came out delicious! This is a keeper.
