Stuffed Pattypan Squash

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2006
My man made this for me, along with 'Mediterranean rice' recipe from the BBC Food website. The meal was absolutely delicious. It was even great as leftovers for lunch the next day!

Fruit Cobbler

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2007
I made this to top apples - it was delicious! I only realised half-way through making it that there were no eggs, but it didn't make any difference. It was even better cold, later! ----- Have made it many times, since with a variety of different fruits. Consistently awesome! Family loves it!

Amalgamation Cake I

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2009
Really good fruity cake. More work than I usually like to put in (I'm seriously into one-pot cookery!). Icing too sweet for me but made it look really impressive. Well liked by everyone who tasted it.

Quick Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 16, 2009
This was great! Much better than I expected. I made cupcakes, just used self-raising flour as I didn't really know what pastry flour was. And I doubled the cocoa powder (cos I like things really chocolatey!) Warm out of the oven they were good, but a day or two later they were fantastic, they took on a soft, almost gooey consistency like brownies. Everyone liked them, no-one guessed at the unusual ingredients.

Roast Chicken with Cracked Peppercorn Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2007
This was delicious! As always, I adjusted the recipe according to what was in the cupboards, i.e. white wine instead of vermouth, small onion inteaad of shallots, double cream not whipping cream. but it made an average roast dinner that much more special. I also roasted the vegetables in the same dish as the chicken; the carrots tasted wonderful! I would probably increase the amounts of the sauce if I was making it again, it was so delicious 2 of us had no problem finishing it all off! (recipe for 4 people!) Thank you Denise.

Savory Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2007
We both really enjoyed this recipe. IT was altered at the last minute, when I realised we'd run out of marmalade - I used mango chutney instead. It was delicious. I also baked the pork chops in the sauce, after frying them in the flour mixture. The meat was so tender when cooked this way. I will definitely be cooking this again!

Easy Cheese and Garlic Scones

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2007
Having read other reviews, I added slightly more butter. They turned out amazingly well! Light and fluffy throughout. My fiance told me to make double quantities next time I made them! I'm making a third batch today and have followed the recipe exactly. I'll let you know how they come out...

Carrot Cake III

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2008
Wow - the cake was simply the best I've ever tasted! The icing was too sweet for me, but that's just personal preference. 5 STARS!

I cooked this with chicken breasts, for my in-laws - they all loved it! There were no leftovers for the dog, poor thing!

Big Soft Ginger Cookies

Reviewed: Jun. 19, 2008
Amazing recipe - I doubled it to get more cookies! In future I would add more ginger - my guests said they could taste the cinnamon but not the ginger.

Marinated Baked Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2009
Tried this recipe before realising we didn't have any ketchup... used tomato salsa instead. Didn't smell great when cooking, but tasted really good. Cooked 4 pork chops in this sauce in the slow cooker for 3 hours. Was really pleased with the result.

Aunt Joyce's Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2008
Well, I had to make this cake when I saw the ingredients, it was just so unusual! It looked fantastic, tasted chocolatey (I used the cocoa powder and oil) but the texture was slightly rubbery. However it didn't detract much from the cake, nearly all my family loved it!

Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2008
Fabulous. I doubled the quantities, which may have affected the cooking time a little.

Apple Cake I

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2009
Excellent recipe, not too much work. Mine took a lot more baking though, after 30 minutes it was well browned on top but not cooked in the middle so I had to turn the temperature down and cook it for another 25 minutes. I have an electric fan oven, but it is getting old now. Tasted delicious, especially warm with walnut ice cream!

Old-Fashioned Chocolate Fudge

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2007
Wow. I followed this recipe exactly and it turned out perfect - even on an electric hob without a candy thermometer. Thanks to those other reviewers who gave tips about fudge-making. - couldn't have done it without you! Perfect consistency fudge, creamy delicious flavour and texture. The only reason I've not given this recipe 5 stars is because there is more detail required in the recipe, mainly with regard to the sugar crystals, timings and temperatures. Many thanks though - this should give my fiance enough energy as quick snacks throughout his triathlon this weekend!

Tangy Chicken Breasts

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2007
Very interesting taste, slightly acidic. Halved the recipe, baked in oven with marinade. My brother and fiance both enjoyed it very much - we added a slice of cheese to each fillet midway through baking. Served with brown rice and vegetables.

Chicken with Couscous

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2007
My boyfriend and I really enjoyed this. I altered the recipe slightly (can't help fiddling!) and didn't measure, exactly, the spices... It was a tad spicy in places, but very enjoyable all the same. I will be making this again. I'm glad of the recipe, as I wouldn't have thought to use those spices together on my own.

Chocolate Frosting III

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2007
Well I made it just now to decorate two chocolate cakes. I had to add more milk than the 2tsb one reviewer suggested - just poured some in though so I don't know how much! It was a bit lumpy so I guess I should have sieved the icing sugar (?confectioners sugar in USA?). Otherwise, tasted delicious!
