  • Ginger crunch cake with strawberry sauce

    • mamacrumbcake on September 05, 2017

      This is a delicious cake! Surprisingly, compulsively, addictively good. I seldom serve it with strawberry sauce since I usually make it during the holidays when strawberries are not in season.

  • Spinach-wrapped flounder and warm lentil salad with cucumber yogurt sauce

    • ashallen on September 23, 2019

      I found this dish to be somewhat bland, though I could imagine others enjoying the flavors it does have more than I did. The cucumber-yogurt sauce, feta, and mint is where most of the flavor is.

  • Herbed eggplant dip

    • ashallen on November 29, 2019

      Very good!

  • Orange braised chicken thighs with green olives

    • ashallen on October 24, 2019

      This was a fine-tasting, but not fabulous, dish that could use some tinkering. Adding some fresh herbs, orange zest, and/or white wine to create some more brightness might help?
