Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Glazed autumn medley

    • Laura on October 27, 2009

      I wouldn't bother with this recipe. A lot of sugar with not much reward.

  • Lime-mint slush

    • wester on October 09, 2010

      Sweet and refreshing. Easy to make. The kids loved it too. Same recipe as Banana-mint slush from Fresh Start.

  • Coffee sip

    • wester on October 09, 2010

      Easy low-fat iced coffee. Same recipe as in Fresh Start.

  • Lemon rice with leeks

    • wester on September 30, 2010

      Nice but nothing special. The bite was just right, but it was a bit salty and the lemon and other flavors were not very apparent anymore.

    • eliza on September 28, 2020

      I liked this dish a lot, and have repeated several times. Used a homemade chicken stock and it came out with good texture and flavour.

  • Braised leeks

    • wester on September 30, 2010

      Tastes good. I don't have any skillet that fits whole leeks though, and halving them lengthwise means they fall apart. Next time I will cut them up in rings.

  • Fennel purée

    • wester on September 30, 2010

      Nice, but it tastes like it could use some more fat.

  • Great green vegetable tart

    • Jswendt on September 16, 2011

      Though this was reasonably tasty, when I took it out of the oven, it was sitting in a pool of liquid. The "custard" i.e. eggs and cheese did not cook as they should have. Not sure why. Perhaps should have salted and drained zucchini first and actually dried (even though I drained) the beans and broccoli. The other negative is that lots of dishes are involved in the prep.

  • Tarragon lobsters

    • janbernstein on August 12, 2012

      8/2012 used Costco frozen lobster.

  • Susie's baked apples

  • Garlic and Swiss chard fettuccine

    • JoCam1717 on September 05, 2014

      The lemon and parsley make this dish "taste like spring"! Light & refreshing. It would be best served with a protein source such as chicken, scallops or tofu. Could also add more vegetables, if desired.

  • Broccoli pesto

    • swegener on February 01, 2015

      I made this when I was trying a bunch of different pestos. I like the idea of adding veggies to the pesto.

  • Cool cucumber soup

    • Suitsme on July 19, 2020

      There are so many better recipes out there for cucumber soup. Not enough cucumbers, too much dairy.
