So, a week and a half ago, hun broke his wrist. And I had already agreed to cook for August. It seems I will cook for August and September.

This seems like the ideal place to keep track of the recipes I've tried, and what I thought of them.

Hopefully, you all won't be bored.

Dried Broad Been Puree (p 62 of Diane Seed's Mediterranean Cooking) - This is supposed to turn out something like hummus, with fava beans (aka broad beans) instead of chick peas. It did not. Several things may have gone wrong:
-The beans soaked something like 8-12 hours, not overnight.
-Not enough water was used to cook the beans.
-Jarred garlic substituted for whole garlic.

I am willing to try it again, with canned beans instead of dry, more water, and proper garlic before I give up on this recipe.
