Next time, I will push more of the bread to the edge of the baking dish for the last 5 minutes to crisp up.

Plus, like half the dishes feature huge cuts of lamb, which isn’t that easy to come by at stupid places like Giant Eagle. I have people over for dinner and was able to start cooking at 5, with it and appetizers and asparagus in the oven by 530. Maybe a bit gratuitous for a Monday night but it feels mighty nice to not toil over the stove, eat, and then trudge back to the kitchen to clean up everything. Did not have waxy potatoes and there was a terrible storm outside, so just parboiled a cut up large russet for half of the recipe. I really appreciate that she understands how busy life is and has offered recipes that are virtually "hands off" -- the tagline for the book after all is "simple dishes that look after themselves.I do find some of the ingredients either a little repetitive (lots of potatoes) and some hard to find. The filling on its own was delicious, but in the squash, with the lashing of cream and the melted cheese, it made a lovely presentation. Edited to add: I just noticed a note that appears after the index at the end of the book that says the recipes were tested in a convection oven.

Since we didn't think it needed the butter (we all had a dollop but didn't want more) I wrapped it up and stuck it in the freezer. The salmon skin was a little soggy but I have made a note to cook it skin side up for the first 10 minutes next time. I halved the quantity of potato and lamb, but left the tomatoes, onion and olives the same for two people. This is a simple and really delicious one-dish meal, with a lot of flavor from the harissa, ginger, garlic, and cumin. Instead of rubbing the spice paste onto the chicken, I just added it to the pot all at once with the sauteed onion/ginger/garlic.As it turned out, the Asiago were inserted in the center of the sausage, they all got melted into the batter, leaving a hollow tube running thru the center of the sausage. The orzo was tasty with lots of fresh herbs (parsley, oregano and basil) but with a dry measure of 1 1/4 cups, there is a LOT of it leftover. From quick after-work suppers and light veggie meals to more substantial feasts to feed friends, these recipes are packed with full-on flavor. The photography in this book is dark and contrasty, really brings out the color and textures of these baked dishes.

I reduced the sausage, potato and onion and left the peppers and tomatoes as per the recipe for 2 people. The saltiness of the sauce really complemented the sweet potatoes, giving them a bit of a glaze but without adding more sweetness to them, and the chicken was very moist and succulent. Although she says the sage butter is optional I would say do it if possible as it adds an extra dimension. What I've found with the recipes I've tried is that you prep the ingredients, get them in a pan, stick them in the oven, and voila! Mine didn’t and just stayed stubbornly on top of the chicken so I scraped it off into the bottom of the pan.We add some harissa with the olive oil to the veg and chicken at the start, which brings more depth of flavor once roasted.
