This post is for all of you to add your likes and dislikes from the YELLOW
Quick and Easy Cookbook here. Here are some posts from a few older links about this cookbook (I am sure I missed some from older postings, so please your ideas here):
: I LIKE the yellow "quick and easy" cookbook. I've liked everything I've made from it and I particularly liked the quick snack and/or quick lunch ideas in the beginning of the book. And some of the "tips" are great at making your life easier as far as food prep, food storage, meal planning, etc.
: I really like the yellow cookbook as well. Two of the recipes from it are my BBQ signature dishes (what I've been bringing to all of the summer parties I attend as a guest). They are the Sesame Green Beans and the Lemon Olive Oil Cake. Yum, yum, YUM.
: Oooh, yeah, I really like those Sesame Green Beans.
I like a lot of the Thai recipes, too.
We have a thread of favorite recipes from the orange book in Recipelover's sticky, but I didn't see one for this one. Here are the ones that I would make again:
blueberry buckwheat pancakes p57
pear bran muffins p73
thai shrimp soup w/ lime and cilantro p78 (a regular favorite this past winter)
mexican chicken soup p82
curried zucchini soup p89
jicama, tomato, and black bean salad p107 (in the fridge right now)
turkey salad w/ pistachios and grapes p118 (made with chicken)
chicken tahini salad p127
chicken yakitori p194 (another favorite)
warm kasha and grilled chicken pilaf p199
chicken and avocado salad p201 (yum, great for summer)
thai grilled beef w/ green beans p214 (excellent)
veal piccata p234
hearty miso soup w/ soba p256 (also good w/o soba)
black bean and goat cheese tostada p266
sesame green beans p274
mexican-style chocolate bananas p297
flourless chocolate raspberry cakes p309
melon slush p321
: The Chipolte Beef Burritos are delicious (p268). Also, the Buttermilk Waffles (p76) are really good too. When I make these I triple the recipe and make a bunch of extras. They freeze great and we just pop one in the toaster to reheat.
I made the Chipolte Beef Burritos. They were delish! Spicy but good!
: I made the Indian chicken (subbed mixed veggies for cauliflower). It was good, but a little too mild. I'll just add more spice next time. I'd also recommend adding some pineapple or a little splenda to bring out the coconut flavor. And soy sauce or fish sauce.
: I bought the book last weekend. I made the peppered london broil w/ horseradish sauce..It was awesome. I did not think my family would like the pepper though-so I subbed a grilled steak seasoning that had a lot of pepper in it. My son even took some the next day and had a london broil sandwich. I plan do do several of the recipes...and I really love the front of the book-it has all the foods broken down in alpha order..so I can look something up quickly and figure out what to look for.
I was wondering about the asparagus soup. I am going to try that. I love asperagus. I made the mini greek meatballs. I used gr. turkey instead of chix..they were really good-I served them with ww pasta and nsa spag sauce(hunts-I think). Even the kids ate it. And today I put some on a wrap with a cucumber/feta/yogurt spread and veggies for my husband.
: i tryed the warm spinach and mushroom salad and the apple, avacado, and red lettuce salad both were wonderful.
: I made the turkey sausage and it was great! Now we prefer it to turkey bacon.
I also made the Asparagus soup with parmesian sprinkle. I added some cayenne pepper because we found it too bland. After that, my dh loved it!
The Cajun Chicken salad was great, my dh wanted it 2 days in a row.
Crab/avocado salad - absolutely amazing! My favorite so far.
Goat cheese, walnut and pear salad - all I can say is WOW!
Stuffed tomatoes - Very, good. I will definitely make them again.
Mustard flank steak - it was good, but I prefer the broiled flank steak in the original book.
: Hi, I tend to lurk but i got this book and just had to post. I'm not a good cook and one of my goals for this year was to improve my skills and become a better cook and eat better for my condition (I have PCOS).
Anyway, I picked up this cookbook last weekend and I have loved everything I've made so far!
My husband was simply mad over the Thai Shrimp with Lime & Cilantro soup. I enjoyed the Canellini Bean salad for lunch this week and today I'm surprised by how much I like the Chicken Tahini Salad!
Tonight, we're making the shrimp stir-fry and I have the ingredients on hand to try several of the salads this weekend! I can't recommend this book highly enough, especially if you are trying to improve your cooking skills and expand your food horizons.
: I just had to share this recipe I made last night from the new SB Quick and Easy Cookbook. It was so good, quick and so few ingredients. My husband said it was restaurant quality and I have to agree--the Balsamic Glazed Salmon
Update: I just used the leftovers (sauce and all) on top of salad greens and veggies for lunch and it was AMAZING! Gotta try this one!!

: I'm on phase one but loosened the rules last night since it was Valentine's Day and had some of the South Beach Quick & Easy Cookbook Mac & Cheese. It was DEEE-lish! My boyfriend isn't on SB but he's tries to eat pretty healthy so he's not opposed to whole wheat pasta and man-o-man....he went back for FOURTHS of this stuff!!!!
