Beth's Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2009
I made these for the first time last winter when a friend visited with his kids - they're real city kids with busy working parents and we live out in the 'countryside' here in Norway. I wanted to give them that country cabin feeling when they arrived and thought what's better than the smell of home-baked choc chip cookies wafting through the air...esp. to kids! Their eyes lit up when they were treated to these cookies and they were even more delighted when I packed some for their trip home. I enjoyed them more than the kids though...hehe...fantastic with a glass of cold milk. I can imagine making these with my daughter when she grows out of those nappies!

Carrot Cake III

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2009
Gorgeous!! No wonder it's the best-rated carrot cake recipe on this site. Ever since my first taste of carrot cake at an exclusive bakery I've tried to find a recipe that yields the same magic...and here it is! I've made this cake a few times now - even in a ring cake tin - and it impresses every time. Stick to the recipe 'as is'...you won't go wrong. Although I did have to bake mine a little longer with some aluminium foil on top (to prevent burning), but that's because my oven has seen better days and tends to be unreliable and heats unevenly. UPDATE: though I said it's a great recipe 'as is', I've tried it with toasted walnuts (skin blanched off) and nutmeg as suggested by many others (for me nutmeg is a must in a carrot cake) and the taste just gets better. Hmm...I drool just thinking of this cake. Makes me wanna open my own carrot cake shop!!

Herbed Dumplings

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2009
My hubby n I just had these in chicken soup. Definitely will not make these again. I've made dumplings from my own recipe before and they came out lovely and just how I've had them in restaurants/other people's homes. Just thought I'd try someone else's recipe in case I've been doing it wrong all these years. Followed recipe to a tee but left the pot covered the entire cooking-time and reduced the salt as recommended in other reviews. Yet they ended up being the dumplings people have nightmares about - stodgy, gooey and mushed. Turned my yummy chicken broth into a thick, creamy gravy! There is no need for both baking powder and soda. In fact dumplings are ideally made with self-raising flour. The baking soda altered the taste of my soup and left a horrid taste in our mouths.
