Reviewed very basic bread

Jan 12, 2015 on

This is the most amazing bread I've ever had. Closest thing I've felt to being back in Germany. But I'm only assuming by "basic bread" he means few ingredients, not length of time or number of steps.

The technique is easy to follow, but does take more time than average bread making. I would definitely say that the recipe does run...

It was really good, and I don't even like mushrooms. I had to learn how to make clarified butter for this (because regular would burn at the temperature required for this recipe), but the results were fantastic. I put it on a steak (AB style), and it was the best steak I ever had.

Honestly, best ribs I've ever tasted. I added smoked paprika and they were even more phenomenal. Definitely worth the time, and they really don't require that much effort. So there is no excuse.

This recipe is fantastic, and as an AB fan, I know he often gives leeway to be innovative with his recipes. I stuck to his recipe; however, I left out the cloves and mushrooms because I didn't have them, and I substituted red wine and white wine vinegar for the white wine and sherry vinegar for the same reasons. The recipe still was probably the b"

Excellent! I used canned artichoke hearts (drained and rinsed) because my grocery store didn't have frozen. I eliminated the salt, since there was enough in the can. I also used neuchatel cream cheese and low fat sour cream to reduce calories. I also left out the mayo for the same reason. Either way, it is very tasty!"

This was very tasty. I used one whole scallion instead of just the whites, because I love onions. And I also replaced the chicken with tofu since that was what I had. However, next time I will definitely try it with chicken. This recipe was very tasty!"

I did two hours of de-watering, and replaced the Worcestershire, sherry vinegar, and hot sauce with sesame oil, rice wine vinegar, and soy sauce because I made a stir-fry with those sauces along with it. I only give it four stars because it didn't make me love tofu. I'm a big texture person, and tofu is just one of those things I don't think I can"

I love this recipe! First time I made it, it was way too spicy for my taste. So I took out the red pepper flakes the second time. Next time I might cut most of the sugar too though. It is pretty sweet. But otherwise, this is amazing and completely adjustable to your personal preferences with sauce :]"

Delicious! I added crumbled heath pieces to mine. It's definitely premium ice cream."

Very good, I used brown rice instead of white. The cayenne gave it a good amount of heat, so if you don't like spicy maybe cut back on it. I also used plain old white caps, because that's all I had. Still good though! "

Rice was perfect. Never had a better way to cook brown rice. Next time I might replace the water with chicken stock. "

Very good! I had to do this a couple times to get it how I liked it. The buttermilk mixture kept curdling on me as well, so to get around that I toasted the garlic in a tablespoon of butter over medium-low (if you like garlic a lot then mince it up, as soon as it starts browning, take it off and let it cool for a minute. THEN add the milk mixture "

Just made these and they were delicious! I don't have a grill, so I used my cast iron skillet on med/med-high. To fix the moisture problem, it helps to do the following: take a dinner place and lay a smaller dessert plate upside-down on top to create a little dome. Lay the mushrooms (gills down) on top after cooking and let drain for a couple minu"

Excellent! The buttermilk gives it that twang that goes excellent with lemon. I might add a little more lemon zest next time though to make it more lemony. If you can't make the raspberry sauce, plain honey is also delicious on top."

I made this cake twice in one week! Depending on what pan you decide to cook it in, I would check it periodically in the last 20 min with a thermometer just to make sure it isn't overcooking. Overall, this is a cake I will make whenever I have extra carrots. Not too heavy, but wonderfully delicious. "

Awesome. I don't even like fish, but whenever tilapia is on sale I like to make this. If only making the fish, I use only half the oil though just to save some money.

The potatoes can be a bit tricky, maybe it's because I had to cut them by hand. But still overall delicious. "
