Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Sugar spot banana muffins

    • VeryVigario on July 22, 2018

      Good, I didn't have honey crunch wheatgerm so I just added oats- next time I'd probably lightly blend them then toast them for extra flavor.

  • Spinach, caramelized-onion, and feta quiche

    • Bob.NH on October 12, 2015

      Works with Swiss chard also.

  • 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.

  • Fettuccine and tofu with finger-licking peanut sauce

    • Globegal on April 27, 2016

      The sauce tastes GREAT!!!!!

  • Italian meat loaf with fresh basil and provolone

    • ssdrabek on August 28, 2012

      Steve and I thought yummy and delicious....kids did not care for...remember to presoak the tomatoes!!

  • Garlic-rosemary roasted chicken

    • bookish on November 02, 2010

      Page 228.

  • Rosemary potatoes

    • Globegal on September 17, 2014

      First made 9-16-14. Made half a recipe & cut the potatoes smaller (bite size). 15 minutes was too much, but flavor was there. Try at 10 min. I like that size.

  • Chile-vinegar turnip greens

    • Christine on May 16, 2016

      This was an easy, flavorful way to use up turnip greens from my weekly farm box, requiring only a few other pantry ingredients. I ate it for lunch over brown rice with a side salad. I didn't measure/weigh the greens which were from an average sized bunch of turnips, but in hindsight, I think it was less than the pound called for and I probably should have decreased the other ingredients as well. I used Sriracha sauce for the chile/garlic paste and the end result was pretty much at my limit for spiciness, so I would use a bit less next time. As with other cooking greens, this wilted and shrunk down rather a lot, as you would expect, so it doesn't make very many servings, even if served as a side dish as directed.

  • Tomato-basil soup

    • Christine on September 18, 2012

      I used fresh tomato juice leftover from making sauce. It tasted very summery and fresh and the tomato & basil flavors really came through. Since I was the only one in my house that would eat it, I did get a little bored of it after eating it several times, but it was definitely a tasty, successful recipe.
