Mini cookbook challenge
I'm going to try to work my way through more Isa/Terry recipes. They are all my favorite cookbooks, but I get caught up in other things. I'm going to start mainly with more things from Vcon and VWAV. Anyone else want to participate? I know some of you have already made like everything in them. I never really follow recipes exactly, but I want to make more of these things. I want to try to do..2? recipes a week. Isa and/or Terry books only!
Isa's new book, Appetite for Reduction is coming out around December, I believe. I've tested a lot of the recipes, and it's going to be good!
does not sound like a bad idea! but if I remember to get beans on Saturday I might well end up making it this weekend too.
How time consuming are those potato spinach squares? I can't remember looking very closely at that recipe... Might make them tonight if they're not too involved : )
failry time consuming. Easy to make, but takes a while coz you need to boil & mash the spuds and then bake them and then allow to cool for a bit.
They were excellent though!
excelllllent. I like involved recipes, just not usually on a Wednesday night : )
haha, I totally take that leftover call as a challenge, so so many things I make that serve '6-8' we don't get any leftovers from at all.
I might use fresh silverbeet from my mum's garden rather than frozen spinach though...
yaaah someone else likes the tomato scones! : )
but... what is too fluffy for a scone?? Scones are meant to be fluffy!
I made the Potato Spinach Squares from Vegan Brunch last night. I used fresh silverbeet rather than frozen spinach, and used a little olive oil spread when mashing the potatoes so didn't add any oil, and probably added less salt because I usually do. My oven's ridiculously hot/crappy so I only baked for ~20 minutes and it was lovely and crispy on the top. I don't usually like very lemony things, but I really liked the combination of flavours here, and my husband loved it.
nonononono. A scone is a scone is a scone.
What you call a cookie we would call a biscuit.
What you call a biscuit... I can't tell the difference between that and a scone so I'd just call it a scone.
I say 'scon' I guess. Definitely not 'scoane'. haha.
Probably just under half the potato left. I didn't bother dividing into 'squares' though. He probably ate about 1/3 of the total amount last night. Then had to make instant noodles straight after dinner because he was still hungry. Gah.
Maybe 'scoane' is not good. Scone rhymes with con or moan?
con, I think.
eta: I'm not letting the video go.
and I still don't have a video camera! But we're in Wellington with Shell and N from Monday to Thursday next week so will see if they have more technology skills than I do... : /
nope it's scone to rhyme with moan.
And I have a webcam so yep we are totally making a video. I was thinking about it this morning and thinking Mr Oww nmight think we're mad for doing a video just for VW.
N already knows I'm mad anyway.
oh, he knows we're all mad, and I already told him the internet was asking for a video of us.
do you really say scone like that? I guess I've never heard you say it, because that is just how anyone here would 'put on' an overly british/posh accent.
At least you know a biscuit is a cookie, not a scone ; )
well, as an overly posh Brit, that is how I pronounce it!
haha, that's why I was laughing, because you're totally not posh! Maybe I just didn't hear enough english people saying 'scone' to realise that's actually just the common way to pronounce it over there! : )
nope it's scone to rhyme with moan.
Interesting. We say it that way in the US too, but I met an Englishman who didn't even know what we were talking about when we said it. When he said it it rhymed with "con."
vwav chickpea spinach curry tonight : )
I want to make those tomato scones now....
(I've never made/had a scone before)
I have a review and picture to post here....I'll do it later....
