Creamy Parsnip With Ginger Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2007
It's difficult to find recipes for parsnip soup and this one was lovely! I didn't have cardamom or all spice & I used a bit of fresh ginger root in place of ground ginger but it still tasted it great.

Bacon Wrapped Hamburgers

Reviewed: May 5, 2008
This is the only hamburger recipe I use now, with a couple of changes: I do not use the parmesan and I have yet to wrap them in back (although I'm sure it's delicious). Full of flavour, they are the best homemade burgers I've come across.

Eggnog Blend

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2008
I tried making eggnog a few years back & it went horribly wrong but this recipe was a huge success. Don't be tempted to speed up the cooking process at the beginning (making the custard). Keep the heat low & stir constantly until it's thickened slightly. I didn't add the ice cream (it was sweet enough without) and used part whole milk & part single cream because we can't get half & half in the UK. I also only used rum as is the tradition back home. It was delicious and everyone loved it - and most of my friends had never tried eggnog before - by far the best eggnog I've had.

Green Tomato Relish

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2007
I used 3 cups of sugar instead of 5 and 1 1/2 cups of cider vinegar (because I ran out), but it was still delicious. Highly recommended!

Best Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2010
a 1/4 makes about 8-10 large cookies, so I cut these in half - 1 tbsp scoop made the perfect size. They were delicious too & I would be tempted to experiment with 1.5 cups chocolate chips & 1/2 cups chopped hazelnuts.

Black Magic Cake

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2009
Amazing! I accidentally used 2 cups of flour but it turned out fine. It was so moist that I had to be careful when taking it out of the pan because it was stuck to the bottom, but otherwise no problems. My husband was sceptical about the coffee, but you can't taste it at all - the best homemade (from scratch) chocolate cake I've had!

Banana Cake III

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2006
The other day I had a few over ripe bananas in the fruit bowl and went in search for an easy recipe for banana cake - this was it! Buttermilk is hard to find in England and i love that this recipe uses ingredients that i've always got in the cupboard. (I took advice from other reviews and lessened the baking soda to 1 1/2 tsp and added 1/2 tsp of baking powder). The cake was a huge hit with work colleagues!

Kidney Bean Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2009
I did not include the eggs (for no other reason other than I didn't have any to hand)but did include a bit of dill as suggested by another member. I also noted that some others thought the salad had too much mayo/relish, so added both ingredients just a bit at a time until I was satisfied. Tasty & wll probably make it again.

Sausage Bean Stew

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2009
I used uncooked pork sausages and baked the stew in a cassarole dish (uncovered) for approx 40 mins. I also used a bit of mild chili powder and oregano. Will defnately cook this again!

Honey Lime Chicken Wings

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2008
An easy and tasty recipe, however, the amount of sauce was perfect for about 6 - 8 wings so double if you are doing more. Rather than frying, I baked them for 30-40 mins at 400 degrees and they were perfect.

Applesauce

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2006
I've made this recipe twice and both times the applesauce was great! However, i found that when i used fresh apples picked from our tree, it didn't need any sugar. The second time, i used apples that i had frozen and needed the sugar, but used half of what was recommended. It's an easy recipe and i love it!

Banana Sour Cream Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2011
I liked the cinnamon sugar coating from the pan. The recipe was too large for what I wanted, so divided it in half. I also used a larger loaf pan but cooked it for 1/2 longer, so it was fine.

Glasser's Greek Marlin

Reviewed: Apr. 23, 2008
When our fishmonger recommended trying Marlin ( which he said had more flavour than swordfish, but was more subtle than tuna), I was pleased to find this easy recipe. To make it even more straight-forward, I melted all of the butter in 1 pot (rather than 2 as suggested), dipped the marlin in the mixture with a slotted spoon & then cooked them on a griddle pan (get the pan nice and hot, but turn the heat down to cook the fish). When it was cooked, I scooped the sauce over the fish to serve.
