Chocolate Cookie Mix in a Jar

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2007
I thought this was a great and easy gift to make and I gave it to a friend who maintains that she can't cook or bake and was so pleased when these turned out well (she invited me over to taste them). I will follow the tip from other reviewers next time and will change the layering as the flour did make a big fat white later on the top.

Meatball Bread Pudding

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2008
This recipe is a really great idea and a bit of a retake on something my mom used to make which was savoury bread and butter pudding, but this is better because everything is nice and moist. I cheated a lot and used a packet of pre-cooked spaghetti mince which I make in huge quantities and keep in the freezer for quick dinners, but which has all the ingredients required for the mince in this recipe anyway. I chopped some extra fresh tomatoes and threw those in to up the veggie content. I used leftover hotdog rolls, cubed. I also used 4 eggs, milk and no stock. I then microwaved it, covered, for about 6 mins. Added grated cheese and then 2 mins more. Fab idea!

Sandy's Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2008
This cake is great! I made it for my husband and I for dessert for valentines day (and a few days after) and it has kept wonderfully in the fridge. It is a very dense rich cake, so a little goes a long way. I didn't do a thing different to the cake except using lined and greased cake pans. The frosting I made 2 minor amendments to: Only used dark chocolate and added about 1/3 cup dark cocoa after the 5 cups of icing sugar were in - I tasted it and it was very sweet, but still too "wet". The cocoa pulled back the sweetness big time and made the frosting super-chocolatey. Also had to put the frosting in the fridge for half an hour to firm up before using it (but I did made this cake on a very hot day - about 35C). Served this on my big cake stand with rose petals scattered on and around it and it looked amazing!

Light Oat Bread

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2008
I have made this a few times now and it really is a great recipe. Generally the only change I made was to use canola oil instead of marg / butter. The most recent time I made this I upped the oats to 1 cup and dropped the flour by half a cup and it was just as good, still very light with a sweet oaty flavour. We think it makes the most amazing tuna salad sandwiches!

Morning Glory Muffins I

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2013
These muffins are awesome! Healthy and filling and easy to grab as I walk out the door in the morning. I chose to grate the apple because it seemed easier, but otherwise followed the recipe perfectly and it worked out great.

American Girl's Peach Cobbler

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2008
I have made a bunch of peach cobblers before and I have always been unconvinced, but this was really good, even though I tried really hard to mess this up. I was having 6 for dinner so wanted to halve the recipe, no biggie until I forgot this when measuring ingredients for the batter and found I only had 3 cans of peaches and somehow persevered in putting this into the smaller dish I had planned to use.... managed to slide it into a bigger dish and pop it in the oven and it was fab! It was quite difficult to wait until after dinner as it smelled fantastic as it cooked and looked great as it sat on the counter. I did use only 1 cup of sugar - that was the only intentional change and it was great.

Tangy Slow Cooker Pork Roast

Reviewed: May 26, 2008
Loved this! It's sort of oriental in flavour, which went down well in this house. Only change I made was to use brown sugar instead of white. I served this with mashed potato and steamed bokchoi and it was really good. Used the left over bokchoi, roast and some of the gravy with more veg and chow mein noodles to make a stir fry. There were compliments on both meals!

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!

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!

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.

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.

Marinated Peppers

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2009
These are excellent. Followed the recipe as is, but used dried herbs instead. Will make these again and might attempt to bottle them.
