Pro Ganache

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2008
One of my favourite things about this recipe is that it's so easy to scale it. I quarter it and get a perfect amount for one 8 or 9 inch cake. I also use half milk chocolate melts and half good quality non-baking chocolate, usually Lindt 70% cocoa chocolate. This is a delicious and versatile recipe that I use all the time. Can't recommend it highly enough! :D

Strawberry Meringue Cups

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2008
These were really good, but I think the recipe yield should be for 6 smaller cups rather than 4 bigger ones. I used strawberries and blueberries and dusted them with confectioners' sugar. Definitely don't sweeten the cream - the meringue gives all the sweetness you need! :o)

Heavenly Chocolate Mousse

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2008
All I can say is, WOW! Rich and creamy... delicious! The only thing I did differently was halving the recipe (I used 2 smallish egg yolks) and used half milk chocolate melts and half Lindt 70% cocoa chocolate. Very nice!! =D

Greek Style Potatoes

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2007
I really liked this recipe. Next time I think I will add less lemon juice though as they were a little too sharp for my taste. These are really good served with lamb and I will most definitely be making them again. :D

Lamb Chops with Balsamic Reduction

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2007
I loved this recipe! I didn't have any shallots so I used onion. The sauce was nicer than I expected. :D Great recipe, will definitely make it again!

Creamy Rice Pudding

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2008
The only thing we didn't LOVE about this recipe was that we found it slightly too sweet. Next time I make it I will use 1/4 cup of sugar. I also added cinnamon. Great recipe! :D

Strawberry Syrup

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2007
I used half a cup of sugar and it turned out perfectly! The strawberries provide most of the sweetness. Great with cream on pancakes. :D

April's Deviled Eggs

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2007
This recipe is great! My family loved them. I used garlic powder instead of garlic salt, because it really doesn't need salt in it. I know other people have complained it was too salty, I think the final flavor of the eggs will depend on what type of mayonnaise and mustard you use. For example I have noticed there are big variations between different brands of mayonnaise. Some have a more tangy flavor than others, some are creamier than others, etc. Next time I made these I used ranch dressing instead of mayonnaise, less mustard, and added a bit of dill. They were delicious! :o)

Dark Chocolate Cake I

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2008
I LOVE this recipe! The cake isn't too sweet which is great, and it goes perfectly with ganache. They freeze well, too, which is perfect for those of us who don't have enough people around to eat a whole three-layer cake. :) I would suggest mixing the cocoa powder and water an hour or more before you plan to mix up the cake batter. The longer the cocoa/water mixture is left to cool, the better, because it gets thicker as it cools. This is a recipe that I will definitely be making over and over again - thanks Carol! =)

Traditional White Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2009
This is the best bread recipe ever! I've made this with butter and with lard, and it is infinitely better with lard! The texture is great and it tastes delicious! Even people who don't normally like home-made bread love this.

Supreme Strawberry Topping

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2008
I must admit I was skeptical of this recipe since I've never liked strawberry topping. But this recipe is amazing! Great over ice cream and tastes so much more natural than bought topping. I only did otwo things differently; I cut all the strawberries in half and pureed the entire batch because I'm not fond of lumpy toppings. Don't worry about the seeming lack of liquids at the beginning, the strawberries soon add moisture. This is a great recipe that I will be making again!

Excellent recipe! :D Tip: Press the yolks through a sieve - makes it creamy and lump-free!

Orange Lemonade

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2008
The lemon & orange are a great combination in this drink. To save time I didn't bother letting the mixture cool to room temperature, I just poured it into a large plastic jug and continued with the recipe. I also used room temperature water rather than cold. I think it's too sweet as it is, so I use 5 cups of water rather than 3 and it's perfect. The second time I made it, I added ½ cup of seedless passionfruit pulp (my mum's idea) and it tasted great! :o)

Pasta Pomodoro

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2008
I really, really like this. I make it all the time. I think the Balsamic vinegar really makes it! Do adjust the amount of pasta depending on how many people you're feeding though, 2 packets seems a bit overboard, to me. Excellent recipe!

Clone of a Cinnabon

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2008
I LOVE these! Easy to make and they taste divine! Excellent when they're warm and they make the kitchen smell so nice. Remember to roll the dough up starting on a LONG side. :) Excellent recipe! :D

Lamingtons

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2008
I love this recipe! Easy to make, and tastes much nicer than store-bought lamingtons. I didn't have a 8x12 inch pan so I used a 9.5x12 inch pan instead and baked the cake for 25 minutes. I also followed another reviewers suggestion and left the cake uncovered overnight. I will be making this recipe again. =)

Chicken Gravy

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2008
I liked this recipe. The flavour was good. As for the people who didn't like this recipe, I think there are two things that need to be right for it to work out well. 1) I used a good quality packaged chicken broth, no homemade broth or pan drippings that might be too fatty, etc. 2) Mix the cornstarch with about 1/6 cup of cool water, making sure it's mixed VERY thoroughly to avoid lumps. This was great over mashed potatoes. :)

Easy Focaccia

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2008
This is a great recipe - a regular in our house! An alternative topping is: minced fresh garlic (one or two cloves), finely chopped fresh parsley, parmesan & mozzarella. Divine!

Basic Truffles

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2008
These are delicious! For half of the chocolate I used plain milk chocolate button melts and the other half was Lindt 70% cocoa chocolate. Very rich and not too bitter as the 70% cocoa chocolate is by itself.

Banana Berry Smoothie III

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2008
I used frozen mixed berries and used 3/4 cup of a rich, sweet vanilla yoghurt (I like my smoothies thick). Has a nice taste but definitely use a sweet yoghurt or the smoothie won't be quite sweet enough. I also strained most of the crunchy berry seeds out.
