Oh, I wanted to add two more reviews for recipes that I made over the holidays!

Italian spinach with garlic and raisins - I made this as part of our Christmas dinner and everyone really liked it! I thought the raisins were a nice addition to counteract some of the bitterness of the greens. This would probably be really good with other greens, like kale. It was also omni approved!

Apple walnut cake with caramel sauce - I think this recipe calls for a tad too much lemon zest. I guess maybe I just wasn't expecting such a bright flavor paired with typical autumnal spices, but I wasn't really a fan. The caramel sauce had a bit of a starchy flavor from the corn starch, so I think I'd cut down on that if I were to make it in the future since a caramel sauce for a cake really doesn't need to be THAT thick. The caramel flavor was really good, though.

I've had a lot of success with this book. The Creamy Artichoke Pasta al Forno comes to mind. So tasty. The only flop was the Cashew-Brown Rice Loaf with Red Pepper Glaze. Dry and way to dense for my liking. I'm pretty sure I followed the instructions carefully.

I highly recommend the chocolate & almond cake.

I made a test batch to see whether I should bring it to work next week, minus the coconut milk (subbed soy) and topping (ran out of chocolate), and the verdict on the base was "yes"! I was initially a little surprised by the amount of oil called for, but the resulting crumb was great.

Just made the creamy cabbage and caraway soup since I had all the ingredients in my pantry. WOWWWWWWWW. This is definitely one of those recipes where the sum is greater than its parts. The caraway and soft cabbage and caramelized onions and potatoes just meld together perfectly.

I just downloaded the kindle version since it was pretty cheap. Loving the look of it!

I have this cookbook and I find it totally underrated. It is awesome.
