Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Soba with sesame and tofu

    • PatriciaScarpin on April 01, 2011

      Quick and taste great - perfect for weeknight dinners.

  • Alfredo sauce

    • Aquila on April 12, 2011

      This was very tasty. Not quite the party in your mouth that a full fat Alfredo sauce is, but to this low fat eater's palate it was plenty rich without being leaden. Salt to taste if you are using salted butter.

  • Thai beet salad

    • jabplanalp on May 11, 2013

      This is actually a beef salad, not a beet salad

  • Galician pork and pepper pie

    • averythingcooks on December 31, 2018

      Based on the ingredients I expected this to be a winner but was disappointed. The filling smelled great while cooking and I did substitute crumbled cooked chorizo sausage for the Serrano ham (I did not have any and thought the sausage would up the flavour) but still I was surprised at the lackluster flavour of the meat mix. Lots of tweaking with additions from spice cupboard / fridge went in before filling the crust. I was also excited to try an olive oil pastry but this one turned out more like a heavy flatbread crust (however it did roll out beautifully). I will keep looking for a good recipe for this style of crust but I won't repeat this particular meat pie.

  • Ginger-lime swordfish

    • Mfrlindeman on July 15, 2020

      Marinade/sauce would work well on chicken. Had a leftover swordfish steak and some sauce. Used it to make a swordfish salad sandwich next day. Mixed the sauce in with the mayo..outstanding!

  • Irish bread pudding with caramel-whiskey sauce

    • ashallen on November 27, 2019

      A delicious and not-too-heavy bread pudding, though it'd be easy to make it richer by replacing some of the milk with cream, if desired. I usually use golden raisins - their flavor seems to go with the other ingredients better than that of dark raisins. Good with or without the caramel-whiskey sauce.

  • Skinny turkey-spinach meat loaf

    • ashallen on September 22, 2019

      I like that this meatloaf contains lots of spinach without it dominating the flavor. Texture was moist and firm but tender. Nice sticky glaze. I deviated from recipe by subbing quick oats for dry breadcrumbs, ground chuck for extra-lean ground beef, and adding 2 tsp minced fresh thyme. I was a couple tbsp short on ketchup, so I mixed in a couple tsp cider vinegar and brown sugar. Good, strong flavor in the glaze, but meat tasted under-seasoned to me. I'll increase salt next time and/or adjust other flavorings, e.g., use more Worcestershire and/or thyme, add soy sauce and/or mustard. Took much longer to bake than specified in recipe - ~80 vs. 45 minutes. Also, cookbook photo meatloaf is much more homogenous than mine. I mixed vigorously, but there were still swirls of beef vs. turkey - quite pretty, actually, but doesn't match photo! Also, I used hand-chopped whole-leaf spinach - photo spinach looks like it might have been chopped in a food processor (not specified in recipe).
