  1. From Cookbook Club:

    Without a doubt, I would make the Noodles, Sweet Potatoes and Shrimp in Curry Broth. Why? Maybe the cold January days call out for soup, but I think it was the ingredients — how could I go wrong. Sounds (and looks) so so good.

  2. I need to cook faster because I now have a toddler, lol.
    Wow. The Noodles, Sweet Potatoes and Shrimp in Curry Broth looks amazing! If I had to choose I would make that, simply because it is making me very hungry and I would love to try it right now.

  3. This book is great – I would love to learn how to make things faster because working, hot yoga, part-time school has got me so busy and hard to have time to prep and cook!

  4. Out of the choices, I would love to make the Noodles, Sweet Potatoes and Shrimp in Curry Broth! I am a huge soup/stew person first of all. Secondly, this screams comfort food to me especially now on these cold winter days!

  5. I have SO much going on right now, I work 45 mins away from home, so when I get home after work I’m STARVING and need to whip up a meal quickly. I LOVED his other book “How to Cook Everything – The Basics” and I’m sure I’d love this one as well!

    Thanks for the chance!


  6. Why? Bad habits is why. I get home and I start doing things — housework mainly 🙁 Next thing I know, it is an hour away from bedtime (I start work early) and no dinner. I find myself scrambling and eating out of the freezer, rather that enjoying myself and cooking a good meal.

    Another reason: my partner goes from ‘not hungry’ to ‘I’m starving and there is no food left in the world!’ in a very short time. He thinks that the only solution then is sandwiches or fast food. Ick.

  7. When I’m hungry I don’t have the patience to take the time I need to prepare a healthy meal – often selecting a quick but unhealthy meal option. Hopefully learning to cook fast would help me break this bad habit.

  8. I am already a big fan of brussels sprouts so the Charred Brussels Sprouts Salad really appeals to me.

    Mardi – I love reading your Cookbook Club posts. Your dinners sound like great fun.

  9. I’m a medical student, so time is of the essence – I definitely need to learn how to cook faster!!

    From your bookclub, I would definitely want to try the Noodles, Sweet Potatoes and Shrimp in Curry Broth.

  10. I would like to try making the Pan-Baked Lemon-Almond Tart. It looks delicious and I would love a good desert you can make in less than an hour.

  11. We are expecting a baby in 6 short months and my husband needs to learn how to take over the cooking….and we need to cook faster. So this seems like the perfect cookbook for us!

  12. I would love to try almost all the dishes you posted, including the noodles, sweet potatoes and shrimp soup, and the lemon tart….it all looks delicious!

  13. From the recipes you tested for the book club, I’d like to make ‘Noodles with shrimp and sweet potatoes in a curry broth’. Phew!

  14. I tweeted…I can cook pretty fast already but who doesn’t like more recipes? And speaking of that, I’d sure like to try make that Lemon Almond Tart
