Latest Notes

I subbed butternut for kabocha, and arugula for dandelion greens. Now that I look at my photo, I wonder if I overdid the pepitas somehow, but the recipe does call for a healthy dose of them. Being a winter squash lover, I was quite happy with this dish. It was very good with the butternut, but I'd love to try it with kabocha some time. I didn’t have a sense of anything missing, but I think Rainey Ramone's (on CH) of adding a bit of sherry vinegar is worth a try.

Easy to make but surprisingly flavourless, given how much chocolate and ginger was in them. They were neither particularly chocolatey or gingery. Won't be making again.

One of my go-to Holiday gifts. Be sure to chop the ginger finely.

An easy last minute gift that is delicious and will be appreciated. Made a variation with dried cranberries- more nutritious ;D

This was fine, but my recipe journal notes "not much return for the work"
by Barb_N about April Bloomfield's grilled vegetable vinaigrette from Food52
Quick and easy summer dinner. I only left them in the marinade for 1 hour. Next time I would leave them in for 2 hours. Didn't have chives so just served with dijon mustard and that was perfect.

This is a less fussy version of twice baked stuffed potatoes. It is not really amenable to baking the potatoes ahead, if they are very cold they are difficult to work with.
by Barb_N about Twice-baked potato pie from Gluten-Free Girl
I thought this was just ok, and I definitely wouldn't make it again because it was a lot of work. prepping all of the ingredients She doesn't specify what type of bulghar to use (fine, medium, coarse), so I went with fine because that was all that I had on hand, but I think this would be better with a coarser type of bulghar. Many spices are added to the kale, but I didn't like the combination together in this dish, I think primarily because it was too lemon-forward with all of the zest as well as the juice. Just too much for me with the feta too.
by TrishaCP about Warm salad of spiced kale, bulgar wheat & Puy lentils from Sirocco
We absolutely loved these burgers. I think next time I would add the optional chipotle chile because just adding the one tablespoon of adobo sauce didn't add that much heat or extra flavor. Adding chives to the avocado crema is brilliant. I love the fresh oniony flavor the chives bring to the table. The recipe makes 8 burgers out of about 3 lbs of meat- that is larger than what I would usually make- I could have easily made 12 burgers because these are really rich.
by TrishaCP about Pork and chorizo burgers with avocado crema (Hamburguesas de cerdo y chorizo con crema de aguacate) from Mexican Today
This was a really simple and delicious grilled chicken dish. I ended up using New Mexico ground chiles for my chile powder as that was what I had the most of on hand, but I think chipotle might be nice too. The yogurt/mint/shallot sauce was a nice touch but isn't necessary because the chicken stays really succulent due to the yogurt marinade.
by TrishaCP about Grilled chicken breasts in spiced yogurt from Gourmet Magazine, August 2004
I have cooked this recipe many times and it is always a hit with the family, even with the meat lovers!
by HarvestingDinner about Rockin' Moroccan stew [Moroccan vegetable stew with sweet potatoes, chickpeas and ginger] from Looneyspoons Collection
I second Laur0684 that this is a 10 star dish. I will never cook sweet potatoes any other way in the foreseeable future! I forgot to press start on the timer, hence the dark hue but they tasted amazing nevertheless. Divine.

I loved this cake and the compote. I had just bought a huge bunch of rhubarb at the market this weekend and EYB pointed me in the direction of this recipe. I used one of my last blocks of marzipan from Ikea (yes, you read that right $2.49/200g!). Delicious.
by raybun about Almond cake with strawberry-rhubarb compote from Smitten Kitchen
We loved this, the marinade was delicious! I kept the fillets whole and roasted them for 15 minutes. I used toasted white sesame seeds and a couple of drops of sesame oil on top. Served with Grace's sweet potatoes (same book) & steamed green beans. Definitely a keeper for us, empty plates all round.
