by MidwesternerTT about American Heart Association Low-Fat, Low-Cholesterol Cookbook
We thought these noodles were ok, but not outstanding. They seemed a little bland & the sauce was quite ‘gluggy’.
by e_ballad about Hailam noodles from Asian After Work
Very crisp cracking even though I did not hang it to dry, just put on rack in refrigerator overnight. Tasted okay but not quite like store bought.
by chawkins about Roast pork belly from Chinese Cooking
About half the reviews on Bon Appetit said this recipe lacked flavor; something I was willing to overlook given the ingredient list. I couldn’t disagree more. Our family loved this, my daughter asked for it to go into regular rotation. I did add a 1/4 t of red peppr flakes, some veggies (julienned carrots and baby spinach) and topped with crispy shallots instead of sauteed red onion. Just salt, no fish sauce as I don’t like the smell. The toasted coconut is a must.
by Barb_N about Coconut rice noodles with ginger and turmeric from Bon Appétit Magazine, August 2018
Absolutely doesn’t need the onions. Used fresh Thyme, 3.8 cups of cooked dried cannellini beans, and some sautéed turnip and radish greens. Hot Italian sausage. Didn’t do the bread topping this time—although I think it would be tasty. Cook the tomatoes for 20 min not 5 min. Next time, no onions and double the beans.
by IndyGirl about Sausage and white bean "cassoulet" from Epicurious
I love this dish; however, I don't always feel like deep frying - it's messy and, well, it's a lot of oil. So rather than doing the deep frying stage, I opted this time to add some oil to the marinading beef to loosen it right before stir-frying. You don't get the same amazing silky texture as you do when passing the meat through the oil, but it's still a nice, flavorful stir-fry. Next time I'm going to add some whole cumin seeds, too. (We love cumin.)
by kitchen_chick about Beef with cumin from Revolutionary Chinese Cookbook
This was a good way to use up stale challah but I'll probably try other bread pudding recipes next time. I did appreciate the fact that this wasn't very sweet.
by Lepa about Challah bread pudding with raspberries from Food52
Yes it's easy, but it made way too much filling for the size tin (which was as detailed). Ended up putting the filling into 4 other ramekins so it didn't get wasted. Different pastry recipe as I eat gluten free. It is tasty and no doubt won't last long
by etcjm about Quick chocolate tart from James Martin: The Collection
Delicious, refreshing, and a gorgeous color. Nice rich hibiscus flavor (had whole dried hibiscus flowers and allowed them to steep for 9 hours). Makes a lot of syrup, so try a half recipe next time. Syrup can also be used for cocktails and desserts, so should be able to use it up.
by Yildiz100 about Hibiscus slushie (Dai qua kho "slushie") from Vegetarian Viet Nam
Sauce is fabulous, and the pasties, just okay.
by joneshayley about Berber meat turnovers with goat cheese & harissa sauce from Casablanca
I don’t think that the pastry “goes” with the subtly fragranced middle eastern style filling. I won’t make again.
by joneshayley about Safavid-style beef pastries from Persiana
Agree with previous review that this is lovely, but could be improved with a touch of fish sauce or lime juice.
by joneshayley about Steamed sea bass with ginger and spring onion (Qing zheng lu yu) from Every Grain of Rice
This was disappointing. It was very soupy and didn't have much depth of flavour. I cooked it down a little in the instant pot after quick release of pressure and served it that way. Leftovers (this makes a big batch) I simmered stove top for an hour to improve texture and flavour before freezing.
by Zosia about Beef Bolognese from Blue Jean Chef: Comfortable Under Pressure
This literally took 5 minutes to assemble, which I did one day ahead. I reduced the potatoes, eggs, and dairy a bit. The flavor is mild, so you'll want the salsa and other toppings. Next time I might add some spices to the casserole. A good weeknight recipe that the family enjoyed.
by anya_sf about Breakfast burrito egg casserole from The Kitchn
These muffins are cooked on both the griddle and in the oven, providing reassurance that they will cook through without burning. They are easy to shape with no rings needed. The flavor was spot on. The crumb was less craggy and more closed than I would have preferred, but in hindsight, I probably should have added extra liquid. I will definitely make these again.
