Latest Notes

Dear Alldayeveryday, Eat Your Books is not a website with recipes on it, but a website that indexes recipes that are elsewhere - in books, or on websites. So if a recipe is not on the internet (as this one appears to be) you will still have to buy or borrow the book to get the full recipe.
by wester about Chicken drumsticks with peppers and paprika (Cosce di pollo con peperoni e paprika) from Lidia's Mastering the Art of Italian Cuisine
I enjoyed this rice a roni-type pilaf. I might experiment with other roasted veggies, like cauliflower, next time.
by Lepa about Best rice pilaf with roasted red cabbage from Small Victories
This was lovely- refreshing, tangy and light. I made it with golden beets so they didn't discolor the cucumbers. We ate this with salmon, which was a nice pairing.
by Lepa about Beet & just-barely-pickled cucumber salad from Small Victories
I thought this was okay but I didn't love it. I always compare any apple crumble to my favorite Apple Betty from the Rose Bakery book and this one required more effort and the result wasn't as good.
by Lepa about Baked apples with fig and cardamom crumble from Cook This Now
Fabulous. Deb does it again, all her recipes work! I'm a believer. Not adding any chicken (although I wanted to) was brilliant and I highly recommend it. This dish is bubbling with umami from the mushrooms and gravy (lack of a better word). I only baked for 10 mins with mozza only and it tasted fine. I used small ziti noodles.
by Smokeydoke about Mushroom Marsala pasta bake from Smitten Kitchen
This was delicious! Will definitely be adding to the rotation
by ecasey830 about Crusty baked cauliflower and farro from Smitten Kitchen
Very nice chilli! I made it with gluten-free beer, some Rancho Gordo beans (Santa Maria pinquitos) and 2 guajillo chillies and a cascabel chilli. Lovely depth of flavour and just a hint of heat. Next time I might add some hotter chillies as I like it with a little bit more zing
by FJT about Chili with chocolate from David Lebovitz
Great summer drink, on the rare occasion that you wouldn't want something as strong as a Negroni.
by TrishaCP about Campari and soda from Amaro
This was really delicious on a cold night. Nothing else to say except it was great!
by TrishaCP about Herbsaint-infused oyster stew with smoked bacon from Real Cajun
Low effort with great results, even with just a 30 minute marinate. Delicious. Make sure you've got your oven fan on & the window cracked when you're searing the meat. There is some smoke. That sear gives it a great flavor. The gentle finish in the oven cooks it through without drying out. I did use boneless chicken thighs; but I wouldn't hesitate to use the breast meat as indicated.
by jenmacgregor18 about Skillet chicken fajitas from Cook's Illustrated Meat Book
Terrible recipe for pavlova. Underbeaten. Oven temp of 180F is far too low.
by DJM about Mini summer berry Pavlovas with strawberry sauce from The Kitchn
Can someone please give me the amounts of the ingredients needed for this recipe. It was on PBS Saturday. I joined this book site and I still can't get this recipe. Please help. Thank you.
by Alldayeveryday about Chicken drumsticks with peppers and paprika (Cosce di pollo con peperoni e paprika) from Lidia's Mastering the Art of Italian Cuisine
This was a pretty easy recipe that is definitely better than the boxed macaroni and cheese. It's creamy and cheesy but the flavor is a bit one note. I used a sharp cheddar. I also had to add more water to the pot cooking the pasta as it wasn't cooked when the water evaporated. I found that this improved quite a bit with the addition of hot sauce to add some more flavor and cut the richness a bit.
by twoyolks about 3-ingredient stovetop macaroni and cheese from Serious Eats
Really good peanut butter cookies. They manage to have a lot of peanut butter flavor without being dry.
by twoyolks about Peanut butter change-ups from Dorie's Cookies
I really liked the addition of almond extract to this cake. It added just another depth of flavor and made it a little different than a plain vanilla cake. The icing recipe didn't yield enough icing to really ice the whole cake so I'd increase the proportions in the future. Overall, this was a fine cake but nothing more.
by twoyolks about Golden vanilla layer cake with chocolate frosting from Chocolate and Vanilla

What seems like a simple tart is so much more, thanks to the cleverness of this recipe... It bakes up beautifully, the pistachio cream mingling with juice from the fresh fruit.

The fruitiness of the pepper works well with the carrot-heavy batter, further enhanced by traditional cinnamon, nutmeg, and ground cloves.
