Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Chile relleno meatloaf

    • Cheri on November 06, 2021

      We loved this. Baked free form on a sheet pan, and it worked very well. One to repeat

    • hbakke on June 05, 2021

      I don't know if I would say this tastes like a chile relleno, but it was tasty nonetheless. It had a nice spiciness from the poblano and the cumin added an interesting flavor. I used too small of a loaf pan, so it took much longer to fully cook and the pan was overflowing. I would make this again.

  • Little grits soufflés

    • EmilyR on March 10, 2021

      Super light and airy with a slight grits texture. Could use some spice.

  • Sweet and sticky orange cardamom rolls

    • EmilyR on March 10, 2021

      I used fresh ground cardamom. These are a bit sweet (due to the glaze), but another quick and simple recipe - save rising time, of course.

  • Oatmeal cream pie muffins

    • EmilyR on March 10, 2021

      These are easy and delicious. Obviously kids love the frosting, but they are great without, too.

  • Baked chicken tenders with buttermilk ranch

    • EmilyR on March 10, 2021

      I didn't make the buttermilk ranch, but the chicken tenders have a great flavor.

    • tarae1204 on June 26, 2022

      I made these gluten free using a 1:1 GF flour and all GF panko, and they turned out really well! Reheated well too.

  • Gram's corn chowder

    • EmilyR on March 10, 2021

      Feels like a down home Grandma recipe... not in a bad way. I used fresh corn on the cob.

  • Ground beef and pickle tacos

    • EmilyR on March 10, 2021

      These little tacos are excellent. I was in disbelief as my kids kept asking for more and I could hardly make one for myself.

    • tarae1204 on June 01, 2022

      Note that Recipe produces way more diced raw onion than needed, and (more importantly) does not remind you to dice extra pickle for a topping until the very end. For me, this was a good but not great family friendly meal. I left out everything spicy, used bison instead of ground beef, green cabbage instead of lettuce. So maybe it’s due to my own substitutions! Still, it’s really a nice change from your standard taco night.

  • I love olive salad

    • EmilyR on March 10, 2021

      Great flavor - especially if you love olives.

  • Alabama white BBQ sauce

    • EmilyR on March 10, 2021

      The Alabama white BBQ sauce was new to me. I also didn't anticipate it would be a liquidy, but it has a great flavor and works well as a dressing.

  • Citrus baked fish with watercress pesto

    • julesamomof2 on September 13, 2021

      Very light and flavorful - used cod. Served with plain steamed rice and charred broccolini for an easy dinner. I don' t own the book but after trying this recipe I am considering it.

  • Green shakshuka

    • Lsblackburn1 on March 24, 2021

      Breakfast for dinner was delicious! Served this with toast and bacon.

  • Butter bean and cauliflower soup with herb pistou

    • Lsblackburn1 on July 27, 2021

      This soup helped me use up lots of my CSA veggies! The flavors were nice, but I feel like it would have been more delicious if there’d been some cream in there. Just using the beans for creaminess did not give it the flavor I was looking for. My husband thought it was awesome.

  • Cheesy cauliflower enchiladas with mole sauce

    • Lsblackburn1 on April 25, 2021

      Yum - this was delicious. The mole was pretty easy - just blitz lots of ingredients together and cook it down (splatters!) Nice vegetarian dinner, but this sauce would also be amazing on chicken or beef enchiladas.

    • hbakke on June 08, 2021

      Delicious. We loved the mole sauce with the cauliflower. This wasn't the quickest weeknight dinner for sure, but was worth the wait. I would make this again.

  • Alburquerque hush puppies

    • Lsblackburn1 on July 17, 2021

      The batter for these was pretty wet, so they definitely were not nicely shaped after frying! But the result was very tasty.
