Latest Notes

Got some nice beets in my farm share so made this for daughter and my lunch. Delicious and the dressing is perfect on this combination and I think would be good for other uses as suggested in book. I couldn't find just argula so I used an argula mix. Instead of making the herb cheese I use a log of goat herb cheese.

OMG. I made this last night. It is so good and so easy. It’s like a lovely creamy gelato. I didn’t have espresso or coffee liquor so I used vodka. At first the vodka taste seemed a little too evident but after freezing, the vodka taste dissipated and deep dark espresso shone through.

I will make this over and over again. The pita chips were amazing, and will be good with any dip.
by rspoonbill about Fattoush from Milk Street: Tuesday Nights
A very tasty way to make asparagus to serve with Asian food. Similar to Chris Kimball Milk Street's sweet-and-spicy ginger green beans.
by valbe about Thai style asparagus from Charmaine Solomon's Encyclopedia of Asian Food
I made this based on the previous notes and I was not disappointed. Definitely a winner!

Delicious even without the pastry crust. Quick and easy using the weight measurements for the crumble topping.
by valbe about Autumn peach, blueberry, and raspberry crumble tart from 30 Years at Ballymaloe
These were really juicy and tasty. I forgot to squeeze the moisture out of the zucchini. Even so, burger mix held together very well. I would tone down the tarragon by half; it was good flavor, just a little too much. The mayo mix is too thick to process in a blender. We felt there was enough herb taste in the burgers, so plain mayo would be good substitution. We also used red onions in lieu of spring onions with good results.
by wkhull about Green goddess zucchini turkey burger from Closet Cooking
These were a hit! The recipe said it makes 12 but I 8 so they were a little bigger because i was using them as a side and not an appetizer. I added some extra garlic but otherwise stuck to the recipe. I will absolutely be making them again.

Fantastic recipe for chicken sandwiches. Lovely crunch and a bit of zip from the spices. Looking forward to having these again (and again).
by bwhip about Fried chicken sandwiches from Cook Like a Pro
I've made this one before (previous version from Melissa Clark), and it's always great. I think about half the dressing quantity would be fine, as this seemed like far too much to me.
by bwhip about Charlie Bird's farro salad from Cook Like a Pro
Loved these. Made homemade honey wheat bread for the toast, and the entire combination was just sublime.
by bwhip about Smoked salmon tartines from Cook Like a Pro
There's an aspect to making this that is like a science experiment. I assembled the ingredients in a jar a let it sit in my closed garage (in the summer) for about 20 hours. This produces a very thick and slighty tangy cream which I used for two recipes in the book (Fresh corn chowder with roasted peppers (5 stars!) & Roasted peppers with onion and herbs (also good)). I'd make this again when called for.
by billcranecos about Homemade thick cream (Crema espesa) from Authentic Mexican, 20th Anniversary Edition
Easy and great sauce. I made it to go with the Barbecue prawns in this cookbook.
by nicolepellegrini about Caribbean salsa verde from Caribbean Food Made Easy with Levi Roots
Simple and delicious. I cooked under my broiler instead of grilling.
by nicolepellegrini about Barbecued prawns from Caribbean Food Made Easy with Levi Roots
Another raw vegetable salad with the familiar elements from this book (cheese, nuts, mint, bread, etc.) But very good. This was basically like a panzanella salad with fresh corn.
