Must resist urge to buy more cookbooks. I did borrow this from the library a couple of years ago, but just for the food porn/erotica aspect. I may check it out again, actually cook from it, and probably buy it.

the carrot ginger dressing is one of the few things out the cookbook I didnt like so far. Maybe I just need to try it again but it was too much like putting soup over a salad.

it is very thick - I tried to thin it out. I tossed it with some kale, and it was yummy :)

Last night I made an awesome dinner out of this book - Pasta de los Angeles with the Caesar Salad on the side. Still dreaming of that meal! Will definitely be a repeat for sure, but I say that about the majority of recipes I make from AFR.

I've made the Caesar Chavez dressing a lot now, almost have committed the recipe to memory :) whenever I make it I make a point to make a double-batch to last me throughout the week.

I just made the Caesar dressing and...wow. I want to drink it. Tossed it with romaine and put that and Smart Bacon in a whole wheat tortilla. Yum. I want to eat a billion of 'em.

Broke out this cookbook tonight and made the kidney bean and butternut jamba. It's REALLY good!

I omitted the thyme simply because I didn't have any on hand, and added more cayenne pepper along with about a 1/4tsp of cinnamon (which might seem weird, but it tasted like it needed something and I think the cinnamon really made a difference). I also simmered it for about 45mins longer than suggested. It was edible after 20, but I really wanted the pumpkin to soften down completely and the flavours to meld.

Next time I'm going to caramelise the pumpkin in the oven beforehand, then just cook everything together for the recommended 20 mins.

So I made the black bean red velvet mole tonight and it would have been really nice if my chilli powder had not been ridiculously too hot, despite being labelled mild.

This is due to be my dinner for the next 3 days so is there anyway I can save it? it's like hiccuppy, tear inducingly hot.

You could add potato and serve with avocado or sour cream.

Made the Chickpea Piccata for my family and it was a huge hit. Everyone had two giant helpings! And the recipe could not be easier.

Thank you! Avocado made it bearable, not as nice as it should be but saves wasting it!

I think our chilli powder in the UK is stronger than US chili powder. I've seen recipes which call fro 3 tablespoons of chili powder & I so wouldn't use that amount in any of my cooking & I like hot & spicy!

Yeah, I think chili powder can be a spice mix in the US, with other spices added, but I am not sure.
Edit: I just found this recipe for chili powder http://southernfood.about.com/od/season ... 30420j.htm so that may be more like what Isa means?

That's what I've always heard. In American cookbooks, usually they'll use cayenne for heat and "chili powder" for flavor.

I usually use one from Asda which is deep red and just flavour not heat but this one was from Bart and was a fiery orange colour which should have warned me to be careful!

American chili powder is usually mild, but can also be spicy (but would hopefully be labeled if it were). I've been fooled by chili powders before, though. Very tricky seasoning to buy.

Penzey's is a popular American mail order site for herbs and spices. Under their 'chili powder' section they have the following:

Regular Chili Powder rich flavor, deep color and very little heat
Medium Hot Chili Powder our most popular chili powder, good rich flavor that's not too hot
Hot Chili Powder this is the best powder for those who like their chili hot and flavorful
Chili Con Carne Seasoning spicy flavor, but no heat, a great way to give a chili flavor to other dishes

The Peanut Lime (Dragon?) Dressing is AMAZING. I have eaten it on salads all this week and it is my new favourite dressing. Spicy and deep and bright!

I think I'm gonna do this next week.

I'm pretty much eating all AFR this week. Lunch is kale salad with tons of veggies, marinated tofu, and the Garlic Green Goddess dressing. Which is awesome!

Dinners this week are Upside down lentil shepherds pie with caulipots, Hottie black-eyed peas with greens and sweet potatoes, 40 clove garlic and chickpeas with broccoli and quinoa, and the Easy Breezy Cheese sauce over baked potatoes with broccoli.
