Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Thai coconut curry soup with chicken

    • averythingcooks on March 15, 2019

      Other than some necessary veg substitutions based on fridge contents, I followed this pretty closely cutting it by half. I will admit that poaching the chicken breast with fish sauce in the water did create a fairly "funky" smell in the kitchen - not sure I would do that again. The soup itself with the green curry paste and coconut milk is nice - I cut carrots along with yellow and orange peppers into matchsticks and used frozen peas in place of the sweet potatoes and snap peas called for.

  • Spicy chicken and corn chowder

    • ldholakia on March 22, 2017

      Very, very good -- followed the recipe exactly and was delighted with the depth of flavor given it was so quick and easy. Spicy enough to please those looking for a bit of a kick without being overwhelming.

      This makes a really creamy and delicious corn chowder. The fresh corn in combo with the creamed corn is lovely. I had added minced garlic in with the onions before I realized it wasn't actually part of the recipe - habit I guess! I also added some chopped Peppadew hot peppers for a pop of red and some extra heat. A definite repeat.

  • Quick black bean soup

    • bethihearyoucalling on July 23, 2013

      Used white onion. Lots of flavor delivered quickly, as promised. I would purée a smaller portion than called for here.

  • Italian Cobb salad

    • jenmacgregor18 on March 15, 2019

      Took some liberties: subbed bacon for pancetta and red bell pepper for cherry tomatoes. I didn't put blue cheese in dressing. (H doesn't like blue- so I put asiago in hers). Olive oil & lemon vinaigrette. This went over well with the girls. Keeper.

  • Country captain chicken

    • averythingcooks on March 11, 2019

      I have made the long , slow & complex Lee brothers country captain (from BF's Showdown) and it was absolutely delicious .....but today I tried this "quicker" version and it was also REALLY good! Small changes - my store cupboard curry powder is HOT so I started with 1 tablespoon then added a palmful of home made garam masala and a small can of coconut milk for the simmer. To up the heat part way through, I added my mango pineapple hot sauce ( for its lovely fruity heat) and finished with green onions and a handful of peas. I made Chrissy Teigan's skillet naans/ flatbreads to dip / scoop .....my husband doesn't much care for rice ( whaaaa??) Just a lovely Monday night dinner that will be repeated :)

  • Cilantro rice

    • twoyolks on February 09, 2015

      The recommended cooking times left me with slightly undercooked rice.

  • Pork chops with creamy roasted poblanos

    • Jfbeaner on March 02, 2019

      bone-in center cut chops

  • Roasted broccoli

    • twoyolks on September 16, 2013

      I cooked the broccoli for longer than in the recipe but it was still undercooked. I think a owner temperature for a longer time would yield a better result.
