Microwave Potato Chips

Reviewed: May 7, 2007
This recipe has to have 5 stars for keeping my husband entertained for a full hour! I printed off the recipe just to try and he saw it and just marched off to the kitchen. These came out quite well, but we ended up cooking them on a greased plate, not on parchment paper as the chips did stick a bit. 8 mins is far too long though, we were cooking ours for 4 and a half mins and they were very evenly browned. This could take a bit long if you wanted say a packet worth of chips, so good thing we just ate them while the next batch was cooking! Thanks for a fun recipe.

Mexican Whole Wheat Flour Tortillas

Reviewed: May 27, 2008
The first time I made these I only let them rest for just on an hour and they weren't very nice - rather rubbery, but I persevered and let them rest for 3 hours this last time and they came out perfect, aside from the fact that I can't roll out a perfect circle! I used margarine instead of shortening and everything else exactly the same. Hubby was very impressed. And this is way cheaper than buying - these cost about a quarter of the price to make.

Boilermaker Tailgate Chili

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2008
Wow, I have been in a bit of an unofficial chili making contest with a friend for a while and I think I won last night! As we only had 5 for dinner I halved the recipe and used only beef as that is what I had. Some of us are not so fond of very hot food, but enjoy a little zing so I made it with ordinary red kidney beans and left out the tabasco and limited the other chili elements, let it simmer for a while, divided it into 2 pots and added the called for chili to one pot and put both pots in the oven to simmer away at 100C all afternoon. Both sides enjoyed their dinner!

Mom's Salmon Mousse

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2008
I was pleasantly surprised by this, I tried it just for some variety and to get some essential oils and whatnot into our diet without breaking the bank. It really does have a mousse-like texture and could probably be served hot or cold and could easily be "prettied up" for a dinner party. The only thing I changed was to add half an onion finely chopped. I had it with a leaf salad and my husband had it with noodles and we were both happy. Served it with a light mustard cream sauce.

Caramel Shortbread Squares

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2014
Yum! Made these twice now and they are great as written, especially as the caramel layer isn't too sweet.

Chicken Potpie

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2009
I really enjoyed this. The best thing about a pie like this is that it is a meal in itself and I didn't need to make anything extra to go with it. I used leftover turkey meat from christmas to make this instead of chicken and otherwise followed the recipe. For the second pie, however, I just froze the filling in a foil container instead of making up another pie as I have limited freezer space. I was a bit bewildered by the reviewer who complained about the sage though, I read the recipe over and over trying to find the sage!

Coffee Flavored Liqueur III

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2009
This really packs a punch with both flavour and alcohol content. I made this for christmas presents and it went down very well. While I wouldn't change a thing I do think that if you use a cheap quality vodka then you should use less cos it just burns, but with a good quality vodka, you can use the recipe amount and end up with a very rich and smooth finished product.

Cream Puffs

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2009
This is ingenious, I have always made these with plain whipped cream fillings and although I enjoyed them, I always thought they needed just a little something more - turns out is was pudding! I have now tried this with different flavours of pudding with great results every time. I've never had a problem with the puffs going soggy or not drying our properly and this recipe is spot on with the method. I have also made the puffs in big batches and frozen them. To use, just put in a medium oven for 5 to 10 minutes - until warm and slightly crisped. When I made these for my husband's 30th birthday party I made a huge tower of them with chocolate pudding filling and dark and white chocolate drizzled all over. Another one I forgot to take a photo of!

Basic Ham and Bean Soup

Reviewed: May 7, 2009
This is a favourite in our house! The last time I made this I also added some broccoli that needed to be used and I didn't have enough beans, so added some pearl barley when there was about half an hour's cooking time to go to make up for the lack of beans. I will also be able to make this using my slow cooker some time!

Lemon-Lime Mousse

Reviewed: May 7, 2009
I tried this for a dinner party because I could make it in the morning and leave it in the fridge and it was brilliant. I couldn't get any decent limes, so used only lemons. I suspect that depending on how sour your lemon and limes, you may need to adjust your sugar - for me it was perfect though. This is quite rich, so a little goes a long way for most people. Will definitely make again.

Scones

Reviewed: May 10, 2009
I grew up having tea and scones with my English grandmother, but lost her recipe so I tried this one because it seemed similar. This recipe made really light, fluffy, tasty scones and I will make it again and again. I made this in the traditional English style with round cut-outs that I then split in half, buttered and spread with strawberry jam and topped with cream - delicious. A word to the not so hungry - I have halved this recipe (for the egg, beat in a measuring jug and use half) and have ended up with 7 good sized round scones.

Quinoa and Black Beans

Reviewed: May 10, 2009
Wow, this was really yummy. I wanted to try quinoa and picked this recipe as it generally sounded good and what a good choice it turned out to be! I made this recipe exactly as is, but added 2 chopped tomatoes as that is one of the things I really like when I have black beans and rice, and who can argue with a slightly higher veggie count anyway? I will make this over and over again as it can be served as a salad, as a main for vegetarians, as a accompaniment, as a work lunch, and it can be served hot or cold.

Ciabatta

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2009
This recipe made a really delicious bread that I will definitely be making again. I do not have a baking stone, so I used the method I use for pizza - simply pre-heat a baking sheet and use the parchment paper to move the dough across. I am used to ciabatta with a more sour flavour, so next time I will let the starter sit longer and maybe in a warmer place. We had this with homemade pesto spread on it and the traditional olive oil and balsamic vinegar dip.

Savory Cheddar Zucchini Muffins

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2009
Yum, I subbed out the butter for canola oil and otherwise made these exactly as written. These are yummy and I will make them again when I have zucchini to use up.

Caesar Salad Supreme

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2009
Yum, my lettuce plants had produced so much lettuce that needed using that I gambled and fed a lettuce based salad to a group that included only 3 girls and a whole bunch of guys and it all disappeared! Yum, made exactly as written and no need to change anything.

Salsa Ninety Nine (Mild)

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2009
I halved this recipe and still got 15 jars of salsa. It is a great and simple recipe, albeit time consuming to peel, core and chop all those tomatoes, let alone the onion and pepppers! I made this recipe exactly as written and will make it again this way in future, but may add more chili, as per the author's suggestion as I was worried about ending up with a too hot salsa. We have already made great salsa eggs for breakfast with this and served with sour cream and tortilla chips to our friends.

Sloppy Sams

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2009
I made this because we were having a vegetarian friend over for dinner and it was enjoyed by everyone. I changed the fresh tomato and paste for a can of tomatoes and reduced the molasses to 1 tbls, which was plenty, otherwise made as written. Served in floured baps with grated cheese.

Whipped Shortbread Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2009
This is a really rich and awesome cookie. The flavour is just like shortbread, but the texture is not - it is so much lighter. I made the cookies as written and rolled them into balls with oiled hands and baked (no cherries). Once they had cooled I half dipped them in chcolate. Yummy.

Bake Sale Lemon Bars

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2009
Unfortunately I took heed of all the reviews the first time I made this and used a smaller pan and ended up with an almost inedibly thick base and bars that were just too much. The second time I made these, I made them as written and they came out perfectly. My lemons were not very tart, so I doubled the lemon juice, on checking the batter.

Best Brownies

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2010
This recipe really is the best! Soft and gooey and delicious. I didn't make the frosting because they really didn't need it. Because this recipe is so easy (melt the butter in a microwave safe mixing bowl in the microwave and no electric beaters or whisks required) I will make it often.
