Notes about Recipes in this book

  • A comforting lemonade

    • cthdawn on February 07, 2010

      go lighter on cherries and heavier on whiskey; maybe not southern

  • Green dragon curry with shrimp

    • lorloff on July 27, 2021

      This was an absolutely delicious recipe for shrimp curry. I used 2 chiles and may use less next time. Taste your chiles before you add them and adjust accordingly. We like Thai spicy so be warned. The combination of fresh herbs with a wonderful shallot lemongrass base worked perfectly. I did not have lemongrass in the house and used lemongrass turmeric paste and it worked really well. Highly recommended.

    • Dannausc on September 21, 2021

      Quite good

    • DFarnham on August 08, 2021

      We really wanted to love this recipe--the flavors are delicious and spicy (we used 4 serranos)--but something fell short....even though this calls for a can of coconut milk, this dish is not saucy, or rich...it kind of disappears into the rice. Not sure if adding more coconut milk would be beneficial as it would dilute the flavor. Not a repeat for us.

  • Chicken korma (stew)

    • Dannausc on September 21, 2021

      Quite good.

  • Pan-seared flounder in chipotle yogurt sauce

    • DFarnham on May 29, 2021

      Delicious sauce. I made the mistake of using plain greek yogurt which made sauce a little too thick, and hard to "warm up" in the pan. Used fresh halibut and it was great. Next time trying with chicken.

  • Beef brisket braised in red wine, wrapped in bacon

    • DFarnham on June 15, 2021

      Disappointed. Followed recipe as written, and we felt that this brisket turned out tender, but very bland. Not a repeat here.
