Cinnamon-Peach Cottage Cheese Pancakes

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2012
Super tasty (and relatively healthy)! I needed to use up some cottage cheese, and found this recipe. I only had about 1/2c of cottage cheese, so halved the recipe, which still yielded 12 relatively big (3-4" diameter) pancakes. I didn't have any peaches, so used a small apple, shredded, instead (like other reviewers suggested) - which came out really well with the cinnamon flavour. To make it healthier I mixed in 2tbps of flax seed with the egg mix. The cottage cheese gave the pancakes a light texture, and I will be using this as a staple recipe for pancakes from now on! We ate the pancakes with some Greek yoghurt and a bit of honey on the side. Then scattered about a tbsp of flaked almonds to finish it off - lovely!

Sausage Casserole

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2012
Very tasty recipe - perfect for a late brunch! The texture was a bit different, but really nice. I divided this recipe to make 4 portions (according to the recipe) but was really only enough for two adults (with only a little bread, cheese and veg on the side). As a side dish, it might last longer. I pretty much followed the recipe exactly, except using vegetarian sausages (which don't 'crumble' as such, so I just chopped them into smaller pieces) and adding some seasoning and dried sage to the egg mix before pouring into the dish. When I do it next time, I will add even more seasoning. If it's for a main meal, I'd even try adding some halved cherry tomatoes to the mix. I had some on the side and the flavours worked well together. I'd also use more shredded potatoes to create a thicker layer around the edges. All in all, a great recipe though which will definitely be used again!

Vegan Cupcakes

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2010
Really amazing vegan cupcakes (and I've made plenty before!). I couldn't find my cupcake tray, so had to settle for making flatter fairy cakes instead. But they came out very nice and moist. They didn't rise very much (This is always a problem with vegan cakes.), but when they're that delicious I didn't really mind. I used regular sunflower oil instead of coconut oil, soy milk instead of almond milk, and white wine vinegar instead of apple cider vinegar. Absolutely delicious cupcakes, that I will be making for years to come. Thank you for the recipe!

Hamburger Buns

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2010
These buns were pretty good, but not brilliant. They rose alright (I used fresh yeast and heated the milk to the right temperature), but I think I might have added too much flour as they came out very dry. I thought the dough needed more flour as it was (in my opinion) too sticky to knead or roll into balls. But maybe I was wrong.. I got 24 buns out of this recipe, but they were very small (despite rising), some too small to use for a normal-sized burger. After the rising, I brushed them with egg and sprinkled sesame seeds and brown flax seeds on top, which was a nice detail. I will make them again, and see if they turn out better.

Chocolate Chip Cookies III

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2010
My new favourite cookies! I have made them several times, and will admit that they do not always turn out perfect. I usually add about 1/3-1/2c extra flour, or until the batter is a good consistency. I bake them on baking paper, and make sure there is plenty of space between the cookies (as the batter melts out A LOT). I usually drop about 1tbsp per cookie. The first time I made them, they came out so perfectly round my mum couldn't believe they weren't store bought.

Spinach, Red Lentil, and Bean Curry

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2010
This is among the best curries I've ever made! I lacked a few ingredients, so used green lentils instead of red, creme fraiche instead of yoghurt, chick peas instead of beans, and red curry paste instead of garam masala. I used frozen spinach and cherry tomatoes. Still, it was absolutely delicious and even my non-vegetarian boyfriend loved it. Can't wait to cook this again!

Herb Quick Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2010
Despite following other reviewers' advice, and adding 1/4c more milk and loads more herbs, this recipe just wasn't for me and my family. It came out looking like a dense sponge cake. It was very sweet, and not at all crusty or in any way bread-like. I will not make this again.

Veggie Goulash

Reviewed: Aug. 14, 2010
I lacked a few ingredients, so substituted the green bell pepper for a red one, and replaced the red wine for vegetable stock. Also didn't have any whole canned tomatoes so I just used chopped ones. I omitted the sugar in the end, and used a bit more tomato puree for sweetness. Having read other reviews, I added about 1 tsp of carraway seeds, which was a great touch. I also added a handful of frozen green beans. I doubled the recipe and it made four standards size portions. This is a great dish that I will be making many more times!

Oat Applesauce Muffins

Reviewed: Jun. 7, 2010
These muffins turned out great! I made them as minimuffins with paper liners, and my only complaint is that they stuck to the paper too much. Next time I'd definitely use a greased muffin tray without paper liners. I followed the advice left by other reviewers, and added cinnamon, salt and vanilla. Buttermilk isn't sold where I live, so I used milk and 2tbsp of vinegar instead. I also only soaked the oats for about an hour. I'll definitely make these again, though next time I'll probably use less sugar than the recipe says. Still, great muffins and remarkably filling!

Tomato Basil Couscous Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2009
This salad is amazing! It was a hit with me and my friends. I didn't have any red wine vinegar or green onions at home though. So I used 3/4 white wine vinegar and 1/4 balsamic vinegar to make up the 1/3c. vinegar, and it tasted great. I also used green beans for a bit of green. I will definitely make this again, but would probably add even more fresh basil (and save some extra as garnish with the cherry tomatoes).

Ham and Cheese Bowties

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2009
Great recipe to use up left over ham or grated cheese. I live in Europe, so had to substitute some ingredients: using dijon mustard, cheddar cheese, and smoked ham. I also added about two handfuls of peas (like a few other members suggested) and used whole wheat pasta. An easy and tasty weekday meal!

Blueberry Oat Muffins

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2009
These muffins taste GREAT! They look great too. They aren't very sweet, but I only consider that a plus. They are fairly healthy and the oats give a nice flavour to them. I followed the recipe, except for substituting the blueberries for frozen raspberries (which worked very well too). I've made them two times already, and will definitely make it again. Thank you for the recipe!

Honey-Oat Pan Rolls

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2009
These rolls were lovely! I followed the recipe as published, except for the pan instructions.. I work in cm. rather than in., and was obviously not thinking when I calculated the pan size and so accidentally used a pan twice as large as instructed. And the rolls came out VERY FLAT. But they were nice anyway and had a great flavour to them. Will make this many more times (but with the right pan)! Thank you!

Apple Oatmeal Cookies II

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2009
I had a couple of spare apples, and liked this recipe. After reading some of the other reviews I added a bit of light brown sugar, and slightly more flour. I also used tablespoons rather than teaspoons to spoon out the mixture. The cookies came out very moist. The consistency was too cake like for my preference, but on the other hand my mum loved them. I agree that the oatmeal works very nicely with the apple.
