Beer Cake I

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2014
This is really nice! Wanted something a bit different and this was! I finished the cake with a beer and lime glaze (as per the most helpful positive review, I just added lime juice) and I just made the cake with the mix, beer, four eggs and oil. I didn't have vanilla pudding mix and it didn't affect it at all. Really good!

Homemade Enchilada Sauce

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2014
This is a good basic recipe. But I found it bland. So I doubled all the spices, used a good dash of salt and for added kick I added one whole dried Guajillo chile and a good chunk of achiote paste. I whizzed them all up in my small blender with a bit of the already prepared sauce and added more garlic to the mix as well. Divine! This is going in my posole.

Grandma's Lemon Meringue Pie

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2012
This is a really good basic recipe to get you started. I did a bit of tweaking. I used 8 medium sized lemons from my tree,and 4.5 tablespoons of cornstarch. The sugar and water were the same. It has turned out fantastic, really tart and lemony and GOOD. I also put this filling on a crust made from oatmeal, dates, demerara sugar and light margarine (more nutrient dense then regular pie crust and it tastes fantastic).

Lengua Chilli

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2011
Just wanted to add that you can modify this recipe to be hotter if you like (add more chilli or hot sauce), or serve it with rice.

Canadian Molasses Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2011
Very easy recipe to make and low fat. However I think you have to *really* like molasses to make these. Very strong molasses flavour...

Red Velvet Cake I

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2010
I followed the suggestions of adding more cocoa, 2 cups of sugar and 1 cup of oil instead of shortening and I am finding the cake is still a bit bland. I made cupcakes with the recipe and I am going to ice them and take them to my friends place as dessert for the lunch she's making. Hopefully the icing brightens the flavour up a bit!

Mim's Corned Beef and Cabbage

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2010
My husband is Polish and he likes his food with a lot of flavour. As corned beef can sometimes be a bit bland if it isn't spiced well I modified this version. I cut the brisket in half and placed it in the bottom of the preheated (on high) slow cooker fat side up. I then boiled the kettle and added enough water to come just to the top of the brisket. To this mixture I added: 1/4 cup of malt vinegar, 1/4 cup brown sugar, 3 tablespoons minced garlic (from the jar is fine), 1 tablespoon of peppercorns, 1/2 tablespoon of whole cloves, 1/2 tablespoon of mustard seed and 2 bay leaves. Stir well and add your vegetables. Turn slow cooker to low. I also added half a leek, and some swede (turnip) to the veggie mixture. I didn't have baby carrots so I chopped four regular carrots into large pieces. I will also add the cabbage one hour before I serve the corned beef. That way it will be cooked but still retain some crispness. Cheers and happy cooking :)

Polish Style Lasagna

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2010
I made this for New Year's Eve dinner for company and people raved and raved. It was ALL gone. I made a few changes and additions though...I used wholemeal lasagna, used low fat cream cheese and added a half cup of low fat cottage cheese to the mashed potatoes as well. I fried up 2 onions, 2 cups of sauerkraut (rinsed and drained) and 10 rashers (slices) of bacon and then layered that on top of the mashed potatoes. It was divine! My husband who is of very strong Polish heritage loved it... YUM I will make this one again.

Delicious Beef Tongue Tacos

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2010
I have been wanting to try this recipe for ages. I bought a tongue at the local butcher here in New Zealand and cooked it as recommended in the recipe. I have made a few modifications however. After peeling the tongue (my dog LOVED the results of the peeling) I shredded the meat, placed it in a medium sized bowl and added the following ingredients: 1 can of kidney beans 1 can of hot kidney beans 2 tablespoons hot sauce 1 envelope of Old El Paso Taco Seasoning 1/8 cup of broth (the water the tongue was cooked in) as well as all of the onions from the pot. I mixed this really well and after sampling it for taste and 'hotness' it is in my fridge marinating until dinner time. It already tastes DIVINE. I'm not going to tell my 15 year old twins what its made of...because I know they will love it otherwise!! i

Polish Dill Pickle Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2009
Am making this for New Year's Eve dinner tomorrow and we are having company :) I'm brave. I've used chopped cabbage and a diced carrot for vegetables. I increased the water by 2 cups and the pickles to 3 cups over all. I also used a cup of pickle juice. Once its cooled I'll stir in lite sour cream instead of flour and milk. Its summer here in New Zealand and its going to be warm tomorrow so I thought a cold soup would be a nice starter. I'm also making Polish lasagna, cabbage stew in my crockpot and Polish desserts. Should be good. It already tastes good hot :)

Healing Cabbage Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2009
Four starts only because I made a few additions...it was a bit plain without them. A tin of baked beans in tomato sauce and I sauteed the onions and garlice with bacon and sausages. I also added potato and kumara (Maori potato in New Zealand, sweet potato would work as well). Yummmm

Stuffed Guinea Squash (Eggplant)

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2009
I looked at this recipe for ideas but modified it considerably since it was *very* high in fat... I used whole wheat breadcrumbs 1 cup of low fat cheese (instead of two cups cheddar cheese 3 tablespoons rice bran oil (no butter) 1/4 cup of skim (trim) milk I also added 2 chopped zucchini and 1 cup of chopped cabbage to the mix in the pan. Add the milk just before the cheese (after the bread crumbs) to help bind it all together and then put into egglplant skins as directed. I sprinkled a little bit of grated edam over the top (literally a tablespoon on each side) and it was divine. I served it with saute chicken breast with broccoli and sweet soy sauce

Tangy Slow Cooker Pork Roast

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2009
I like others here made some changes to this recipe: I doubled all ingredients in the sauce and added the following: 1 large tbsp of seeded mustard 1 tbsp of hot curry powder 1 tbsp of tomato paste 1 clove of minced garlic (omitted the garlic powder) 1 tbsp of arrowroot powder (to thicken you could use flour, corn flour what have you). YUM! I like my food with quite a bit of 'kick' to it. I'm going to serve it with potato salad, steamed greens and fresh, warm bread.

One Bowl Chocolate Cake II

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2008
This is the BEST one bowl cake I have ever made. Beats my mum's all hollow. Really really really good, my 14 year old twins devoured it, and so come to think of it, did my husband. :)

Quick and Easy Brownies

Reviewed: Jul. 17, 2008
Two thirds of the pan is gone and I've had FOUR (!!!!). They are really good with peanut butter on them when they're hot. I used margarine instead of butter and I think I'd reduce the flour to one cup next time to make them fudgier, I have given them four ONLY because they are a bit 'cakier' than a brownie, but REALLY GOOD.
