Latest Notes

This made an enormous tart! The filling was just ok and the pizza dough was disappointing. Don't waste your $$ or time on this recipe.
by lou_weez about Rustic pumpkin, ricotta and caramelised onion tart from Cook and Baker
Took a little longer to cook than the recipe stated, but when it was it was enjoyed by all. Whilst not the healthiest meal I've ever cooked with the amount of cream in it, I would make it again.
by lou_weez about Bacon, corn, and potato chowder from What's for Dinner?
This was GOOD - glaze was delicious and pork was perfectly pink and moist .....sometimes so hard NOT to overcook a tenderloin but the 4 minute glaze/ check cycle to finish caught it at the perfect point of "doneness". I've never used the pre-browning cornstarch dredge before - it also certainly seemed to work :)
by averythingcooks about Maple-mustard-glazed roast pork tenderloin from Food Lab
Made for dinner. Was surprised by how awesome they were.
by termite about Salt potatoes from Taste
Very refreshing for a hot and muggy day. I used gherkins from the garden.
by chawkins about Quick cucumber salad with Asian dressing from The Woks of Life
Wow! This was super rich, & certainly very caloric, but well worth it for a once-in-awhile treat. Unfortunately forgot to purchase mushrooms, which would have added to the lusciousness, but sautéed some onion & threw that in. Rather than going through the extra step of steaming the spinach, I simply put it in the colander & drained the spaghetti on top of it. It was simple to get the spinach out then to chop it up. I agree with a previous reviewer that shorter pasta would make this easier to serve.

If you like preserved lemon this is a dish to go crazy with. I double the lemon requirement.
by JLDuck about Chicken with lemon and olives (Djej m'chermel) from Mediterranean: The Beautiful Cookbook
Wow! First recipe we've cooked from this book and it was a grand slam! Highly recommended.
by HalfSmoke about Charred Brussels sprouts with bacon & dates from Gjelina
Good flavor, but not likely to make this again. I get better results, flavor, and juiciness from a simple rotisserie, which requires nearly zero work. This recipe requires too much active grilling -- flipping and basting every 5 minutes -- for an inferior result.
by HalfSmoke about Cornell chicken from Meathead
Next time i'll simply add blueberries. Reducing half of them into jam made really nice muffins, but i dont think it's necessary. Lemon zest on top is a really nice touch
by Rradishes about Bluebery muffins from Complete America's Test Kitchen TV Show Cookbook, 2001-2010
Super easy hollandaise. However, 1/2 cup of butter and and egg yolk do NOT make 1-1/2 cups of sauce. Makes significantly less.
by HalfSmoke about Foolproof 2-minute Hollandaise from Serious Eats
If I don't have a lemon I leave it out and it's still very tasty
by Larkspur about Green beans with lemon, garlic, and Parmigiano gremolata from Splendid Table's How to Eat Supper
We didn't have lavender honey but did have lavender. Maybe the lavender honey gives it the taste, but I couldn't taste lavender in the dish. Otherwise it was a wonderful, easy chicken dinner with a great sauce. We'll be making this again, perhaps with orange blossom honey and orange zest.
