Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Seafood chowder

    • twoyolks on January 17, 2021

      Good flavor in the broth and the seafood. It's a little spicy from the Old Bay. I used shrimp and cod and shrimp stock. It was good with saltines.

  • Crispy turmeric-and-pepper-spiced chicken wings

    • meggan on February 08, 2021

      The flavor mix is good. I had poor quality wings but will try again.

  • Chicken stir-fry with miso curry

    • meggan on August 28, 2020

      Meh. I doubled the sauce because there didn't seem to be enough but for some reason, this was still unexciting.

    • chawkins on June 02, 2020

      Thanks to the heads up from Rinshin, I found a fine use for the snow peas harvested from the garden this morning. Visually and shape-wise, I think red bell pepper strips or carrot slices would be a better choice than the peas.

    • anya_sf on November 01, 2020

      I doubled the recipe, but tripled the sauce (with slightly less oil). Because the ingredients were crowded in the wok, they took longer to cook and I had to make adjustments. The string beans didn't get tender enough, so I added some water and covered the wok for a few minutes to steam them. After adding the curry paste, water, and peas, I added in the chicken (not the beans yet), but realized the sauce wouldn't reduce enough without overcooking the chicken, so I mixed in a cornstarch slurry to thicken the sauce. The sauce was pretty salty on its own, but quite good with the chicken, beans, and some rice.

  • Spicy-sweet sambal pork noodles

    • grindabod on September 02, 2020

      My brother and I managed to make this dish the same night, completely by accident (we found out the day after when I mentioned it). We (and our partners) both liked it a lot. I mean, what's not to like about this super weeknight-friendly chili and glutamate bomb.

    • Dannausc on July 03, 2020

      Fairly quick and easy. Good and hearty.

  • Whole wheat-oat waffles

    • anya_sf on November 07, 2020

      I used white whole wheat flour and Quaker old-fashioned (not quick) oats. The batter was very thick and didn't spread on its own. I got 5 not-quite-round waffles. They were very hearty, crisp outside, slightly chewy inside. The flavor skewed more savory than sweet. They tasted great with the blueberry syrup. For savory toppings, I'd leave the recipe as is, but for sweet toppings, I'd add a little sugar and maybe use less salt.

  • Salted pistachio crumbles with berries and ice cream

    • Dannausc on July 03, 2020

      I was out of pistachios so I used hazelnuts instead. Pretty decent.

  • Collard greens salad with fried plantain and sumac

    • Dannausc on July 03, 2020

      The store was out of fennel so I used watermelon radishes instead. I used strawberries instead of blueberries. Quite tasty.
