Latest Notes

Very easy cake to make, and a rich, soft, chocolatey concoction. I used a good Callebaut baking chocolate for the cake, and a Lindt 70% cacao bar in the ganache and it's a decadent production. The cake is rich, rich, rich, with six eggs a large amount of butter, not too sweet and a large cake. I can see a local restaurant charging 12-14/slice and getting away with it. Solid 4.5/5.

Part of the problem was probably doing this in the Instant Pot and the liquid didn't reduce. I reduced it the next day on the stove and added a little masa but still too thin for my taste. Flavor was pretty good, but I'm still looking for a new go-to chili recipe.

Kristen Hartke (author) says this: The frittatas definitely do deflate. Now that I’ve been making them for a while, I think they are best when baked in silicone muffin cups, because they seem to hold the shape better and don’t get quite so wrinkly after they cool off.
by mfto about Mini Christmas frittatas from The Washington Post
Added ginger to the congee and it was very tasty! Might try ginger and garlic powder next time to eliminate lumps. Great base recipe with flexibility of toppings, will make again.

I cooked the beetroot in the microwave - much faster.
by Milly184 about Jake's beetroot and sumac salad from Bite NZ
This recipe is all about the ingredients. If you have amazing fruit, tomatoes and cheese -- you can't go wrong. It takes virtually no time to pull together. We enjoyed it with proscuitto or salami and crusty bread. And a cold glass of rose. Pretty much my idea of a perfect summer meal.

Tasty and quick. I served with lemon chicken thighs from Genius Recipes and felt like it was 3 side dish servings.
by joyous about Fried halloumi with spicy Brussels sprouts from Dinner
A recipe that's simple to follow but despite using good quality ingredients the result tasted of neither potato or parsnip. Just a fritter
by Ladyredspecs about Latkes from Jerusalem
I used Japanese eggplants and only two tablespoons of oil for a lighter version. I had some okra so added those to the pan as well. I did not make the shrimp. This is delicious. Definitely a make again.
by okcook about Spicy roasted shrimp with eggplant and mint from Dinner
Beef stew turned out delicious. I used ordinary beef stew and herb de provence. Sauce was a nice consistency. Cooked 35 minutes under high pressure in instant pot with 10 minutes natural release. Make sure your veggies are cut in big chunks.
by stef about Hearty beef stew from Pressure Cooker Perfection
I agree with others could use more apples in the pan size. I did add one more apple and would have been even better with more. I also used Granny Smith.
by southerncooker about Wintry apple bake with double ginger crumble from Smitten Kitchen Every Day
This is my kind of breakfast! I can't believe it took me so long to finally try this combination. I scaled it down to make a single serving using farro and spinach, and added a sprinkle of extra sharp cheddar at the end. It will be a snap to make again later this week with the leftover cooked farro. Yum!
by Rutabaga about Greens and grains scramble from Whole-Grain Mornings
Good but too much dressing and too much vinegar. Not for company as it looks more brown than the picture from the soy sauce and it isn't very attractive. Next time for this amount if salad use 1 tbs rice vinegar, 1/2 tablespoon lime juice, 1/2 tablespoon sesame oil, 1/2 of tablespoon soy sauce (NOT low sodium)
