Thank you, JD, for all these ready reference posts.  Much appreciated.  I can see I need to add a review for the lovely light cheesecake in this book.  In short, for the moment, let me just say it's extremely positive. :)

The main point of the lists was to have all the reviews in one place and therefore much easier to find but I was also hoping these lists would jog people's memories and they would add their reviews Cecilia. It looks like it has worked  ;)  Thank you for your comments and reviews.

Good thinking JD. I was thinking when I saw your first compilation that it would be great to do another review challenge, like we ran a yer or so ago?

Meagan, review challenges can be done at anytime but do you really feel like cooking at this time of the year and in this heat ???

That's fine Meagan, go ahead and give me some new links to add to the lists - it's nice to be able to check out a recipe before tackling it, it just seems to give us more confidence if someone else has made it.

Has anyone made the sambal oelek from this book? Could I make with kaffir lime?

I thought people would still be interested in the atmosphere of the post and her general response to the book, JD.
