Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Chorizo and chickpea one-pot supper (Potaje de chorizo y garbanzos)

    • jzanger on February 06, 2011

      Made this last night and it was SO delicious. A remarkable amount of complexity for a pantry and fridge staples kind of meal: spicy, sweet, smoky, and the lemon juice adds a nice tang. Very satisfying as a quick winter meal. Originally from "The Food of Northern Spain" by Jenny Chandler EDIT 01/2013: This is still one of my favorite quick suppers. I use a Spanish-style chorizo available at the Whole Foods by me. So satisfying.

    • breakthroughc on August 06, 2021

      This is a quick and delicious dinner. It has great complexity of flavors without a lot of ingredients. It is savory, spicy, sweet and bright all at once. I think the optional greens add a lot to the dish, I used kale that was languishing in the fridge. I also topped with a little grated Parmesan. It was even better for lunch today. Will definitively make again and add to the rotation of weeknight meals.

  • Date-night chicken

    • jzanger on May 20, 2011

      This is one of my favorite easy dinners and is affectionately called "slutty chicken" among my family and friends. Most of the time I have everything on hand and it's a brilliant way to have a one dish meal. The lemon zest and dates all kind of merge with the onions and garlic and the cumin-scented chicken drippings to make something that's more than the sum of its parts!

  • Oven-roasted tomatoes and garlic

    • nicolepellegrini on October 05, 2013

      I've had an endless crop of yellow pear tomatoes this late summer/fall, and this recipe has turned out to be a wonderful, simple way to utilize them and maximize their flavor. The cook time and oven temperature is just right to roast them down without drying out and it's great on some crusty bread - or just enjoyed on their own. Definitely add the optional rosemary for heightened flavor.

  • Cauliflower risotto (Risotto ai cavolfiori)

    • nicolepellegrini on November 12, 2020

      I made using half white wine, half vermouth, as I didn't want the vermouth flavor to overwhelm things too much. This was good and a very soothing, warming risotto for cold weather. My husband especially liked the crispy crumb/anchovy topping. Be sure to season it well as otherwise the cauliflower can be quite bland.

  • Chicken chili verde

    • nicolepellegrini on July 29, 2018

      Solid, good recipe. Used fresh summer corn as it's in season right now.

  • Risotto with sweet sausage and fennel

    • nicolepellegrini on February 06, 2015

      Very good, easy risotto. The fennel and sausage is a perfect combination.

  • Mexican chicken soup

    • chawkins on July 12, 2017

      Made the stock with the carcass of a chicken that I harvested the breast and the legs, the carcass from a Rick Bayless roadside chicken and the tips from three dozen wings. Both carcasses still had a lot of meat attached, so I did not roast the chicken breasts. Used three jalapeños and it was not spicy. The tortillas thickened the soup a bit. All in all, a very good tasting soup with avocado and cheese added.

  • Pan-fried zucchini with vinegar and chili pepper (Zucchini in padella con aceto e peperoncino)

    • kateiscoooking on August 20, 2019

      Nice change from barely cooked or fresh zucchini

  • Poached salmon with bolognese salsa verde (salmone lesso con salsa verde bolognese)

    • kateiscoooking on August 20, 2019

      That salsa verde is FABULOUS. Neither of us likes poached salmon as well as we like smoked and grilled. But, this got poached thanks to a torrential rainstorm...

  • Farfalle with yogurt and zucchini

    • anya_sf on July 14, 2019

      I actually clipped this recipe back in 2007, but never made it until now. I used 6 zucchini, which was more than necessary, but I had already bought them. Quick, easy, delicious. Season with extra salt and pepper at the end and you may not need extra cheese.

  • Crab salad

    • Shelmar on September 05, 2019

      Daniel Boulud & Melissa Clark, simple, double the apple.
