Nancy Drew Fans are doing the Nancy Drew Cookbook Challenge over at Facebook at the Nancy Drew Book Fans Group - join the group and participate!
Let's get to the bottom of the mystery of whether or not the Nancy Drew Cookbook recipes are good recipes! Your mission if you choose to accept it, is to select at least one recipe from the cookbook - feel free to make more than one however, and then share your findings - a review. Take pictures! You can also share at Twitter @nancydrewfans or Instagram @nancydrewsleuths and #nancydrewcookbook
This weekend I made what could best be described as delicious comfort food. From page 78 and 80 from the Nancy Drew Cookbook - the Crossword Cipher Chicken and the Emerson Cookout Potatoes.
Both were very tasty and Bess Marvin would have totally approved! I really didn't find a need to change the recipes as I'm want to do with this cookbook, there were no sinister ingredients in these. Instead of cutting up a chicken and using the pieces we just used chicken breasts we cut up into smaller pieces. So with chicken breasts - boneless - the cook time is a little quicker. The potatoes are to be cooked in a foil packet over hot coals but the oven works just fine as well and we cooked them at 450 degrees for about 45 minutes. I would definitely make these two recipes again. The chicken was tender and moist, the potatoes very savory.
