Notes about this book

  • curtisca on October 15, 2010

    There is a 3-onion casserole in this book that is to DIE for (it uses 3-4 kinds of cheese as well, so not healthy... I made it for New Year's and ate it for days!).

Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Smoked salmon spread

    • zorra on July 17, 2014

      Simple & still appealing.

  • Carrot and ginger soup

    • Queezle_Sister on December 29, 2012

      This is an excellent flavorful soup. I was first served this soup as part of a Thanksgiving more than 20 yrs ago by my sister-in-law. It was so bright and flavorful that I added it to my soup rotation - about every 2 or 3 yrs I prepare a large batch.

  • Macaroni with quattro formaggi

    • CGNE on December 10, 2011

      Took a bit longer than I thought to get the sauce to be thick 'as cream'. Initially thought the pasta was too saucy, but when in the oven it dried out a bit more than expected and became more of a 'baked mac & cheese'. Cover if you want it creamy. Used 2%milk, shredded low fat mozz, and regular gorganzola and fontina. Used parm/asiago mixture for top. Would make again, people really liked it! Lynne- CGNE

  • Chicken legs puttanesca

    • rivergait on September 03, 2012

      From Myra Goodman's Earthbound Cook, unindexed

  • Raspberry streusel muffins

  • Coffee doughnut holes

    • zorra on July 17, 2014

      Made these once long ago for a brunch. They were so good that though we don't remember the occasion, we've never forgotten these indulgent treats.

  • Fresh strawberry sorbet

    • hillsboroks on June 27, 2016

      This is my all-time favorite berry sorbet recipe that works for any berry. This past weekend I used it for batches of both raspberry and boysenberry sorbet. The results are always smooth, creamy and have an intense berry flavor. The addition of the raspberry liqueur ensures that it doesn't freeze so hard that you cannot serve it right out of the freezer. I have always received high compliments from my guests when I have served it for dessert.

  • Sausage-stuffed French loaves

    • CGNE on December 10, 2011

      Turned out great! Modified a bit: used turkey sausage (removed from casings) and 93% lean beef, didn't have fennel (would have been good with it though), used 2 short fat loaves of 'galic tomato' bread from Roche Bros. Did a nice job to flavor the crumbs. Omited the seasoned garlic butter. Added a handful of 50%light shredded cheddar to the mix. Needed a good 30m+ to reheat. Everyone really liked it! Might be good to serve with marinara on the side. Lynne-CGNE

  • Tomato fennel soup

    • PinchOfSalt on February 04, 2013

      Tasty and relatively simple and quick to throw together. Substituted water for chicken broth to make a vegetarian version. Note especially that the recipe calls for 35-ounce cans of tomatoes. All of the large cans in my pantry were 28 ounces.

  • Seafood lasagne

    • Reginavsmith on January 01, 2014

      There are better lasagna recipes out there. The cheese filling is extremely creamy and does not hold it's shape well. I will not make this again.

  • Black bean "cassoulet" soup

    • CGNE on December 15, 2011

      Definitely not traditional cassoulet. This has ham (intentional substitute for duck?) and much more sausage (4 kinds). It is also a soup rather than a stew or casserole in consistency. The meat/fat content probably make this highly caloric (much more typical of 1970's & 80's style than of the most recent decade) but it is very good with bread and red wine.

  • Baked chicken with cider and apples

    • dgtodd on March 22, 2015

      Delicious and easy recipe for a fall dinner party. Good for a crowd.

  • Homemade applesauce

    • CGNE on December 07, 2011

      I use a variety of apples and cut way down on the amount of cider. Sugar to taste, depending on sweetness of apples. Lynne- CGNE

  • Luxembourg salad

    • CGNE on December 10, 2011

      The Luxembourg Salad was not exaclty what I was expecting, although I thoroughly enjoyed it when I tasted it. It is not a light appetizer salad as you might think on quick review of the ingredients and procedures. The meat (bacon) and fat content are higher than what we are used to eating since the '90s (the cookbook copyright is 1984 and culinary tastes have lightened up considerably since then). It also has bread squares sauteed in the bacon fat and blue cheese which are both delicious but very highly caloric. I used Olivia's Spring Mix with Herbs which I think closely approximates the salad greens that are specified but would not contain the chickory. I also could not find chervil but the fresh parsley, chives and tarragon gave the Luxembourg dressing a really nice herbal character that was not overpoweringly "green." CONTINUED IN NEXT NOTE

    • CGNE on December 10, 2011

      The recipe indicates that it makes six servings so I scaled back the ingredients to approximately one sixth as I was making it for myself alone. Therefore, the proportions (an thus the flavor impressions) may be a little different if you can make the full recipe. I served the salad with Col Solare 2007 red wine (a very nice Cabernet sauvignon-based blend from the Chateau Ste. Michelle winemaker). The bacon, blue cheese and croutons were the predominant tastes in the salad and paired very well with the wine unlike the usual green salad which would conflict with the wine. The salad was sufficient for a whole meal. A cautionary note: watch the bacon lardons closely as they crisp up very quickly and could easily burn if you turn away for just a second at the wrong time.

  • Gratinée of cauliflower

    • Miquette on January 12, 2013

      My favorite gratin on the planet, and a family must-have at Christmas!

  • Christopher Wren gems

  • Scalloped oysters

    • hillsboroks on February 01, 2014

      This scalloped oyster dish is so simple yet so flavorful. It is an all time favorite of my husband and his fishing buddy. It can be thrown together quickly but is such an elegant dish to serve with some good white wine, a nice green salad and some good bread. It was the first recipe I searched for on EYB. I had forgotten which book it came from after I first made it and I had tried bunches of other scalloped oyster recipes from other cookbooks but none could compare (as the guys left me know!). Finding the right recipe in seconds really sold me on EYB.

  • Brown sugar-pecan shortbread

    • CGNE on December 15, 2011

      The dough was very dfficult to work, dry and crumbly, making rolling a chore. When it came out of the refrigerator it was hard as a rock and had to be warmed to work it. The cookies were very fragile. This one is not worth the effort.

  • Chicken chili

    • MsB on March 28, 2011

      This sauce has been a long time favorite in our house. I haven't made the full recipe for many years. Instead I use the sauce as a base for leftover turkey or chicken.

  • Chicken, avocado, and papaya salad

    • Miquette on January 12, 2013

      Love this salad, sometimes I substitute cilantro for the watercress and equally as good!

Publishers Text

From the authors of The Silver Palate Cookbook (2.2 million copies in print), here is The Silver Palate Good Times Cookbook. This time the authors focus on entertaining company and making any occasion special with the right ingredients and imagination.

With the same spirit and culinary daring that catapulted the first Silver Palate Cookbook into over 700,000 homes, The Good Times Cookbook brings to each season a sense of the memorable. Dinner a deux becomes a fireside clambake. Spring is heralded with early chevres, curry bread, glasses of chablis. Summer sizzles with swordfish barbecue, while autumn refreshes with wild mushroom forays and the crunch of favorite nuts. And to round out the year, there's the splendid formality of Broiled Oysters with Arugula Puree and an elegant Dacquoise.
