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.

    Often look here when I'm looking for some sensible, basic, perhaps a bit dated recipes--or for definitions of terms that may have become meaningless because of contemporary interpretations.

  • 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.
