Welcome to our blog! We wanted a place to share reviews of Mark Bittman recipes from "How to Cook Everything" and "How to Cook Everything Vegetarian" cookbooks. This blog's purpose is not to re-post recipes, but instead we will leave feedback for HTCE and HTCEV users on recipes we have tried, what we have loved and what we haven't loved.
Quote from Intro:
"Anyone can cook, and most everyone should. It's a sorry sign that many people consider cooking 'from scratch' an unusual and even rare talent. In fact, it is a simple and rewarding craft, one that anyone can learn and even succeed at from the get-go." -Bittman, HTCE

Potato Salad with Mustard Vinaigrette
This is the potato salad without eggs (because frankly I forgot to add them).
My husband is not a fan of mayonnaise based salads and since I love potato salad (and frankly all things potato) this created a problem in our marriage. Enter Bittman and this wonderfully flavorful potato salad that does not include mayo. This salad instead uses the mustard vinaigrette frompage 201(HTCEV p.763) and it is so good! The best part is that it does not require refrigeration and you could bring it to a picnic and not worry about it tasting gross or going bad.
I do add an two eggs to the boiling water (Simple Addition #8) so that the eggs and potatoes boil and cook together. Simply delicious!
