Royal Coconut Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2010
This is an excellent recipe! Loved it! A few things are to be considered though: - If you make this by hand like I did, use a fork to stir and not a whisk. I used my balloon whisk at the beginning and later on bent its handle because the batter gets to thick after the flour is added. It is a very thick and sticky batter so better use something sturdy. - The cookies rise a LOT! Bear this in mind when you put them on the baking sheet. Mine all stuck together. - I used half of the sugar called for and they are still delicious. Next time I might use a bit more than half to get it just right. - I did not use the salt. I never do in recipes. My butter was salted so I guess that evens it out. - I had two sheets in the oven and my cookies needed 18 min. Amazing recipe though! Will make that again for sure. As I say, they are perfect as they are, but would also be good with chocolate chips I think.

German Apple Cake I

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2010
Really excellent recipe! The cake turned out really crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside for me. Just the way I like it. I used only half of the sugar as my apples were plenty sweet and I just don't like it that sweet and it turned out beautifully.

Empire State Muffins

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2009
I made these today but didn't have any walnuts or pecans so left them out. I also had 2 cups of carrots and only 1 of apple. These were so good! The outside was crispy which we liked a lot! The inside is so moist. Overall, the muffins are very tasty.

Bacon Cheese Muffins

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2009
I just made these and they turned out okay. They made slightly more than 12 muffins in my tins (I ended up with 15). I think the next time I made these muffins I will add more cheese and more bacon than is called for.

Sweet and Sour Pork I

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2009
I made this today and it was excellent. I didn't put any of the sugar in and used balsamic vinegar as that was all I had on hand but I really like it!

Soft Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Aug. 14, 2008
These cookies were really good! I did add a bit more cinnamon to the batter and only used half of the sugar. The cookies are still sweet enough though... am even thinking to reduce the sugar a bit more next time. I baked them until the edges of the cookies were crispy and the inside was still soft. Nearly all gone now!

Good Old Fashioned Pancakes

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2008
These are excellent! I followed the recipe the first time I made them except that I omitted the egg as I was only making one portion and didn't want to get an eighth of an egg! But the pancakes turned out really good anyway. The second time I made them I used half oatmeal/half flour in the batter which gives them a nicer texture I think.

Homemade Black Bean Veggie Burgers

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2008
These were superb! I didn't have any onion so I used onion powder instead. To make up for the dryness of the powder I added a tablespoon of salsa. They turned out really well! Grilled them for 5 minutes on each side- really yummy! Will make again! UPDATE: I have now made this again and have simplified the process. I just throw the beans, the roughly chopped pepper, onion and garlic into a bowl and blend with my stick blender until quite smooth. Then I just mix in the seasoning in the same bowl, add the egg and the breadcrumbs and stir. Then I let it stand for about 10 min so that the breadcrumb have time to actually soak up the excessive moisture. So easy and yummy! Will make now every week...

Connie's Zucchini "Crab" Cakes

Reviewed: Jul. 2, 2008
These were really good! I couldn't find any Old Bay Seasoning here in Scotland so I just looked up what it was made from and added the individual spices instead- it turned out really well. Also, I fried them on my George Foreman Grill- no fat or oil which is really good. The downside of this was that they didn't really crisp up but that's better than being laden with oil, right?

Grandma's Eggless, Butterless, Milkless Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2008
This recipes is really good if you have run out of eggs and milk and still want some cake like I did... however, I fancied some lemon cake so I swapped the cocoa powder for some cornstarch and added some lemon flavouring. Somehow the batter turned out very runny and I ended up baking it for about an hour but the result is really good! It's very moist and hasn't lasted long :-)

Honey Oatmeal Bread II

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2008
This recipe produces excellent bread with a few changes! As some other reviewer I also found that with the fluid-flour ratio as stated in the recipe the dough turns out very sticky... I needed to use 3 more cups of flour in oder to get a workable dough. Also I used half wholemeal half plain bread flour and it tastes great. Definitely worth the 4 hours!

Baked Teriyaki Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2008
Loved this recipe! I only made it with 4 chicken thighs for 2 people and it was simply delicious. What I like about this recipe is that it takes no additional work if you make it for a crowd as well! So if I even have a party or something this is really good because you can easily make a lot and just stick it in the oven! I served it with brown rice and salad.

Quick and Easy Brownies

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2008
This is a really good brownies recipe! I love it because it used cocoa which I always have on hand and you don't need to melt chocolate. When I made them I found out I only had half of the number of eggs called for so I made it just with the ones I had on hand and they turned out great. I baked half of the amount in an 9x9 dish for 30 min and after cooling down they were very nice and moist. I also iced them with a mixture of 3 tablespoons of melted butter mixed with 3 tablespoons cocoa powder, 1 tablespoon runny honey and half a cup of confectioners' sugar. My boyfriend thought they were delicous and they never last more than a day in our house!

Vegan Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2008
I wasn't sure whether to give this three or four stars, but decided on the 4 since it is so simple to make and the ingredients are things you always have on hand. However, when I made this yesterday I was a bit disappointed. Because some people said the cake was a little dry I added applesauce to it to moisten it and what came out of the oven was a really moist cake. I probably put a bit too much applesauce in as it was burnt on the outside and still a bit soggy on the inside. The biggest problem with this cake is that it breaks in pieces when you cut it! It's hard to slice it and we gave up in the end and just eat spoonfuls in a bowl. Also, the flavour was a bit strange right after it came out of the oven. Today it's delicious! Definitely wonderful when you make it ahead. Not sure what to do about the falling apart thing though...

Cake Balls

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2007
Yes, I can see why they're heavily addictive... they're gorgeous! I made them today for my dinner party tomorrow and I made one lemon cake and in half of the cumbs I mixed lemon frosting and the other half I put chocolate with a but of rum (I find it underlines the chocolate flavour and also reminds me a bit of Christmas :-D). While the balls were really easy to make they took me ages! From when I started on the cake mix until I had all the balls covered in chocolate it took me 5 hours! But then, I made quite small balls. From a 500gr cake mix I got 85 balls, which I froze for about 45 min. I found getting the chocolate on smoothly was quite tricky. I found that using a tooth pick to roll them around in the chocolate and then pick them up with the tooth pick was the easiest way. I then transfered the ready iced balls from the tooth pick to a cookie sheet with a fork and then left them to dry. My flatmate is already addicted to them and can't wait for tomorrow ;-) I used white, milk and dark chocolate to coat them and I prefered the milk chocolate ones. Maybe next time, to cut out on the waiting time, I will use a ready made cake and just mix it up with the frosting and then make the balls.

Oatmeal Whole Wheat Quick Bread

Reviewed: May 30, 2007
I will definitely not make this again. My dough was much too liquid to do anything with, it would not have stayed in any shape so I spooned it into my muffin tins and what came out 15 min later were ten little bricks. I don't mind dense bread, I am quite used to it (it's hard to get any real ly good fluffy bread in Austria) but these muffins bread things are just too much to take! I followed the recipe exactly, except that I put some herbs in to make it a bit more interesting but I don't think the herbs messed up this recipe. Sorry, this is just not my type of bread.

Best Brownies

Reviewed: May 23, 2007
I made these yesterday and was a bit nervous about the outcome as they were my first ever brownies. They turned out really good though! I frosted them with the brown sugar cream cheese frosting from this site and my flatmate and me, we finished them off in one evening. Will have to make some more brownies soon to keep up with demand.

Shrimp Scampi Bake

Reviewed: May 23, 2007
I made this today to go with a salad and it was quite good. I think I put a bit too much lemon juice. I like my dishes tangy so I figured, why not more? But then it turned out too sour. Will try again though, shrimps are always good.

Mexican Bean Burgers

Reviewed: May 4, 2007
While making this recipe I was looking forward to having the sort of bean burger I am used to from my favourite restaurant. Unfortunately I didn't quite get there, but the outcome is still pretty tasty. For me the burgers turned out too mushy. I baked them for 15 min with flipping them over half way and in the end put the oven on 'grill' for a couple of minutes. They were nice and crispy on the outside, but too chewy inside. Will try with more breadcrumbs (I had already used less salsa!) or maybe crushed tortilla chips. A very good recipe though and very quick!

Best Ever Muffins

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2007
This recipe is fantastic! I have made it countless time with every warying ingredients. My favourite by far is doing the batter plain and filling the muffin cups with half of it and then adding 2 tbsp unsweetended cocoa powder to the other half. Then I top up the muffin tins with the brown cocoa batter and mix the two of the together with a fork. The end result ooks impressive and tastes really good. I do add less sugar to my recipe though, I find the full amount to be too much.
