Unbelievable Fish Batter

Reviewed: May 10, 2008
This is just spectacular. I had real problems with batter (soggy, tasteless, too thin etc), but this was so crisp and light! I too, cut the baking powder down to 2 tbspns, but I used self-raising flour (all I had on hand) and it worked perfectly. I had no problem with it sticking to the thing I was battering (fresh pecorino cheese cubes - it was too wonderful to contemplate!). For such a simple recipe, you'll get fabulous results - guaranteed!

One Bowl Brownies

Reviewed: May 4, 2008
Dear Lord! I don't like brownies much, or even chocolate for that matter, and my hubby and I agree: I can never make this recipe again. Why, you ask? Because it is sooooo good that we ate half of them while they were still warm - that's why! What a simple and amazing recipe! The only things I did differently was use 200g of dark chocolate (because it was what I had on hand and I didn't want to waste any), I added a pinch of baking powder, cut the sugar by 50g and split it - 200g white and substituted the remaining 150g for brown sugar. Bellissimo!!!!

The Best Meatloaf

Reviewed: May 2, 2008
I'm a vegetarian and even I was impressed (by the aroma) of this meatloaf. I used a kilo of mince, barbeque sauce, red capsicum and some garlic as well and it was a complete hit! So moist, yet stayed together beautifullly. I used silicon cookware and it seemed to generate a lot of juice - I drained it mostly off at about 7/8 cooked mark and made gravy with it. I'd definitely recommend this recipe to anyone looking for something nice, easy and uncomplicated. It would be simple to add any number of different seasonings to change the style of the meatloaf.

Rich and Delicious Banana Bread

Reviewed: May 2, 2008
This is heavenly. I'm munching on some warm as I write - bliss! I added 3/4 cup of whole milk (but as I used metric, I could perhaps have gotten away with less), half a tsp of cinnamon and substituted half the white sugar for brown sugar. It's moist as anything and the brown sugar gives it extra richness and 'tooth'. This is definitely the easiest and best banana bread recipe I've ever made.

Apple Strudel

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2008
I have to admit I fiddled with this a bit. I used frozen filo which I sprayed with cooking spray, tinned apples, sultana/currant/raisin mix (mixed fruit with the peel and cherries removed), added 3 tblspns of brown sugar to the mix, used 1 tsp of cinnamon, 1/2 tsp each of ground ginger and nutmeg and 1/4 tsp of cloves - and it turned out great! I used butter on the outside sheet and it was golden and lovely. A great basic recipe with plenty of room to manoeuvre. Can't wait to use other fruit, or even veges.
