Latest Notes

The red cabbage is surprisingly good given the only ingredients are olive oil, garlic, red cabbage, salt, and pepper. I probably had the heat a bit too high as some of my cabbage got crispy, but I liked it this way. It takes an hour, but you only need to stir it occasionally.
by stockholm28 about Pork sausages with red cabbage from Essentials of Classic Italian Cooking
used just to grill eggplant and zucchini. Better than roasting them! More flavor and texture.
by jbny about Grilled eggplant salad with garlic and saffron mayonnaise from How to Cook Everything Vegetarian
This was very simple in ease of preparing and taste. I really like that the spinach was not wilted but still crisp, it went really well with the simple ingredients.
by peaceoutdesign about Green beans with mustard seeds from Seven Spoons
I seared both sides and then finished in the oven to MR. The only thing that I would change is I would double the vinegar, tamari, and brown sugar just to get more sauce. I also made the fresh green chutney to accompany it but it seemed the dish was perfect without it.
by peaceoutdesign about Five-spice steak from Seven Spoons
I made this exactly as written. I made it for Tara's Five Spice steak but it seemed like to much so I used it to top lemon ricotta ravioli and it was awesome. Next time I might do the variation that added yogurt if I use it for pasta.
by peaceoutdesign about Fresh green chutney from Seven Spoons
When I tasted a monkfish ball fresh out of the fryer per Lidia’s suggestion, it was too salty (and I like salt!) and lacking in fish flavor. After simmering in the tomato sauce, though, this is a great dish! My husband and I are looking forward to the leftovers. Next time, I’ll use only 1/2 teaspoon salt in the fish balls and 1 teaspoon in the sauce.
by GiselleMarie about Monkfish meatballs in tomato sauce (Polpette di rana pescatrice in sugo di pomodoro) from Lidia's Celebrate Like an Italian
We loved this pie - like the richest, most buttery slice of honey-on-toast you've ever had!
by annettle about Salted honey pie from David Lebovitz
This sauce was perfect with the yellowtail kingfish we had also called amberjack and Hiramasa. It perfectly complemented the fish which we broiled and decided to just cook through. It was wonderful. We are going to try the sauce with halibut next. We used the juice from 1 ½ limes. We broiled the fish for 3 mins a side.
by lorloff about Grilled yellowtail with avocado-lime sauce from West Coast Seafood
This is a fair amount of work but definitely worth it. I froze half the paste to use another time, and instead of grilling the tofu, I roasted it in the oven with the potatoes, adding it 15 min. after the potatoes went in and flipping it every 10 min. until everything was done.

If I had to recommend one cookbook to a beginner, this would be it. Cooking though this recipe collection was how I taught myself to cook. It's very comprehensive without being overwhelming. Ingredient lists for most recipes are not lengthy. The book also gives many variations and substitutions for each dish, which is valuable from a learning standpoint but also saves you in moments when you realize you don't have a stalk of lemongrass or some other random/expensive item. The sides and meat recipes are consistently good. Breads are quite good. The desserts section fails for me about half of the time- it's definitely the weakest recipe group. Overall, a decent and engaging cookbook with lots of variety.
by racheljmorgan about How to Cook Everything, Completely Revised 10th Anniversary Edition
I was late in my start to making this as an accompaniment for soup today, so only gave it a rest on the wire rack for 30 minutes before slicing it, and luckily, it still sliced easily. Ingredients were easy to mix up and form into dough. I used the only round pan I own, a springform one, and it worked well. This is a heavier, more dense and craggy version of brown soda bread than I remember eating in Ireland. Even so, I really liked it, especially with the wheat germ and wheat bran, and will make again, even though my French baguette loving husband isn’t nearly as much a fan as I am.
by mharriman about Irish brown soda bread from All-Time Best Brunch
Very good method for improving the flavour of a pineapple that isn't quite ripe enough. The salsa was refreshing and complemented the blackened cod I served it with.
by Zosia about Roasted pineapple salsa from Kitchn
I just made the lemon orzo. We really liked it. I think it would be nice to serve cold in the summer.
by stef about Crispy chicken with lemon orzo from Modern Comfort Food

Often we are told not to judge a book by its cover. In the case of Parwana we can do just that. The gorgeous cover is a true reflection of this book’s content.
