Notes and Reviews

  • This was fine (the relish was nice) but it needed a bit of doctoring. Hot sauce perked it up.

  • This was pretty good and healthy, not super exciting. Roasting the vegetables helped boost the flavor, as did the herby oil, a generous amount of salt, lemon juice, and parmesan cheese. For the herby oil, I doubled the herbs (parsley and scallions) and lemon zest, and halved the oil, and would do so again. You could just stir the herbs and zest in and skip the oil. Next time I might puree some of the cauliflower and beans for a creamier texture; the soup is quite chunky.

  • I love the heat and spice mix in this cobbler. Since first baking it three summers ago, I’ve never wanted any other cobbler!

  • I used leftover chicken and heated it through in the sauce. I used the hot sriracha with the red lid, which was a bit too punchy, but the flavour was very good. I used asparagus and shallots instead of broccoli and spring onions.

  • Good flavor but I'd hardly call it a "bar" as it is more like a pot of oatmeal.

  • Tasty, flavorful, and filling. Our toddler loved the beans and sweet potatoes. Will plan to make extra tortilla strips in the future.

  • Great tasting and simple to make. Added tequila with olive oil for the marinade and added onion too with peppers slices.

  • This is a great little quick pickle for radishes. I made a 1/2 recipe and this little jar will get used up quickly.

  • Delicious brownies with cream cheese. I did not attempt to swirl the cream cheese -- had 3-layer brownies, with cream cheese as the middle layer. Baked for 33 minutes.

  • I came here for the cheese crisps to garnish a different salad....and wow - these guys are addictive. I used asiago & a 50:50 mix of parmesan & pecorino romano. I should have started in a larger pan (re: ease of getting under them to flip) but that was easily fixed by going with a smaller amt of cheese for subsequent crisps. Other books use an oven method and I will try one of those next time...but these certainly weren't hard to make.

  • My herb garden is already overflowing so this was an easy choice. I used dill as the 3rd herb and a 1st taste confirms that is bursting with fresh & bright flavours. It is being frozen in 1 tbsp portions and like all the "flavour hero" recipes (her words - not mine :) in this book, the fun comes when you start to use your creations. I have lots of ideas for this stuff.

  • Steve made this one, very nice and seemed simple enough

  • This was a lovely and popular recipe. The recipe is fairly healthy since the shrimp are baked, not fried, and the mango coconut dipping sauce made a lovely and easy summer weeknight dinner.

  • My sister and I made hundreds of cookies for a funeral service from this and the vanilla dough in one evening. This dough was much harder to work with than the vanilla. We both agreed we would make the vanilla dough again, but not this one. Besides being hard to work with, it doesn’t have a deep chocolate flavor or color. The cookies don’t look very attractive and needed a dark or white chocolate drizzle to make them attractive enough to serve.

  • My sister and I made lots of cookies for a funeral service with this and the chocolate dough. We made hundreds of cookies in one evening. We much preferred this dough to the chocolate. It is flexible, easy to work with and with different toppings and drizzles you can make a nice selection of cookies.

  • We couldn't stop eating this! It was a delicious, no-fuss meal. I added some garlic and cilantro.

  • It makes a decent loaf of bread, but 3 tbsp of poppyseeds for a 1 1/2 lb. loaf is overdoing it. I think using 2 would be fine, as the loaf was over-"peppered" with the poppyseeds.

  • I just made the salsa this time and it is fantastic. I added a Persian cucumber, finely diced.

  • It makes a decent loaf of bread. The crust is soft, and not crunchy at all. The sauteing the herbs before adding them to the bread machine really adds to the flavor of the bread.

  • I used about 1/3 less sugar and it was still super sweet (and totally delicious)

  • Unlikely but so delicious! I made a half quantity as a side dish. I used regular British "Medium" curry powder.

  • Great! Subbed cured grated egg yolk for hard cooked eggs. Came together nicely

  • I cut this in 1/2, used our favourite Asian style noodles and with all the other good flavours in the sauce, I'll admit to skipping the cinnamon. No mushrooms in the house so I used the broccoli, peppers & carrots (match sticks - not shredded) called for and then added sliced celery, minced garlic & slivered shallots. We said no to the optional soft boiled eggs and we really enjoyed this quick, easy and very flavourful stir fry.

  • I reduced the sugar as others suggested, and added some broken walnuts in with the apples to add some crunch. I baked it in a 9 inch circular casserole which was ok. I think a larger dish would produce a thinner crunchier batter to fruit ratio. Quick and easy to make and I think would suit almost any mix of fruits.

  • I went off-piste with this one and my way gets 4 1/2 but I am very sceptical about the recipe as written. It's written for plain flour, presumably with the 4 eggs acting as a raising agent but the reviews on the recipe say it's very heavy. I made a half quantity and used 25g ground almonds and 75g self raising flour and baked it in a loaf tin. The reviews also say the white chocolate topping is very very sweet, so I made a thin glace icing of the juice from the zested orange instead. The fruit is very sparse but the spices and orange give a lot of flavour.
