Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Golden beet and sunflower salad

    • Yildiz100 on March 28, 2019

      This is really just beets in a basic vinaigrette, the sprouts mostly just add aesthetic value. It is good, but not going to surprise you.

  • Creamy coleslaw

    • Yildiz100 on July 07, 2019

      Made a half recipe of the dressing subbing high fat (10%) Greek yogurt for the sour cream. Used a tiny bit of additional sugar. Added shredded cabbage and carrots till the salad to dressing ratio was to my taste. Very good.

  • Potato pepper and chorizo empanadas

    • Yildiz100 on October 30, 2012

      rating refers to the dough, which is fabulous

  • Tuna noodle casserole

    • Yildiz100 on June 08, 2020

      This recipe is good, but a 2 quart baking dish is much too small. Use a 3 quart (approx 9*13) dish. Used panko for the breadcrumbs.

  • Orzo with ham and goat cheese

    • jdjd99 on August 23, 2020

      Very simple and adaptable recipe, better than the sum of its parts. We didn't have scallions, so we subbed sautéed bell peppers and it was delicious. I like how the cheese and orzo gave it a risotto-like texture.
