Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Whole wheat pizza dough

    • rionafaith on November 01, 2016

      p. 149 -- Decent dough. It's very sticky (even though I ended up adding the full amount of flour), and patting/stretching it into shape worked much better than rolling it like the recipe suggests. (Why?? Who uses a rolling pin for pizza?) The result is more of a bready pizza that puffs a lot in the oven -- this is NOT a thin-crust style at all, which is fine because I actually prefer a doughier, crustier pizza. I do wish it had more whole-wheat content though -- this only has 1 cup with 2-1/2+ cups of AP flour.

  • Monterey Jack, corn, and roasted red pepper risotto

    • Christine on September 01, 2014

      This recipe uses decidedly non-Italian flavor combinations for a risotto which was interesting to try and turned out really excellent, though I did make some changes. I roasted my own yellow and green pepper slices and used fresh corn as that is what I had on hand. I skipped the optional ground coriander and substituted a finely diced shallot for the green onions, sauteing it at the beginning instead of stirring in at the end. Finally, I didn't have Monterey Jack cheese, so I substituted cheddar and some additional hot sauce to make up for the missing spice. Will definitely make again -- as written or with slight changes depending on what I have available.

  • Lamb shanks Hestia with cucumber raita

    • rionafaith on November 17, 2016

      I halved the ingredients and only made 2 shanks, but after tasting this I probably should have just made the whole recipe for tons of leftovers. It's GOOD. I used marsala wine, and canned crushed tomatoes with basil for the tomato sauce. The golden raisins just kind of melt into the sauce and really make the dish special. I did NOT make the cucumber raita (and after eating the dish I'm glad, as I don't think it would have been the best combination).

  • Roasted asparagus with balsamic browned butter

    • mjes on April 08, 2017

      Time to check out old favorite vegetable recipes for my contribution to Easter dinner. This is one of two favorite simple asparagus recipes. Now I need to find the other. So glad to have EYB to help.
