Notes about this book

  • BlytheSpirit on January 31, 2012

    I love the beef stew recipe.

  • Krisb on November 27, 2010

    This book has some of the best basic cake recipes I have found. The two-egg and four-egg cake recipes produce very moist, delicious cake that can be baked in rounds, rectangles, one layer, two layers, jelly roll... etc. It is the only plain cake recipe I need or use. The gingerbread recipe is also wonderful.

  • Curry sauce

      Made this to use leftover leg of lamb. Delicious over brown Basmati rice. I added 1T. flour after the curry powder had cooked for a few minutes, as thickener for the sauce, instead of making beurre manie.

      The directions directly above this recipe are the absolute best for cooking a roast to the proper degree of doneness. It has never failed me. I use the searing method and cook to 125 to 130 and then let it stand. Pre cooking i spear the meet and stuff with garlic cloves. Dry rub with salt and pepper. T
