I have used many recipes. Great book!
I've made a few recipes from this book already and so far so good. But, there does seem to be a typo in the Tortilla Soup recipe. It says "3 cup lime juice." Looking at other recipes for this soup online, the most I've seen used is a Tablespoon or 2. I tried it with about 1/4 of the lime juice (because I like to make the recipe to the instruction first, then make changes - but I knew I wasn't going to manage 3 cups...) Definitely less lime juice is needed. This is a great concept book, listing the cost per serving and basic nutritional value for each recipe. As a bonus, cutting out fillers and reducing packaging costs on something like taco seasoning gets two thumbs up from me.
This is full of simple, smart recipes. Good ideas for people who want to know what is in their food. Thank you to the author.
This is a really good book for learning to make sauces and mixes that you would ordinarily buy. I enjoyed reading it and am looking forward to trying recipes and mixes.
