Chocolate Cakes with Liquid Centers

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2010
Amaaazing recipe! Elegant and decadent, and so quick! I will definitely make these cakes again. I used margarine and half a pack of semisweet chocolate chips, and I didn't have ramekins so I used a muffin tray. The batter perfectly filled 7 of the muffin wells (the cake doesn't rise, so feel free to fill to the top), and I let them bake for 8 minutes. When they were done, I left the whole tray upside down on a cutting board for half a minute, then pried the cakes out using two mini-spatulas as tongs. They were for a surprise party so I immediately hid them in the fridge, which meant that when we ate the cold cakes afterwards, the centres weren't gooey, but the texture was still wonderfully rich and heavy in a way that seemed gourmet. I got rave reviews and the birthday girl couldn't believe they weren't from a store! (Note: I also sprinkled the cakes with powdered sugar, which made them look gorgeous but turned out to be a big mess when the candles were blown out and sugar got everywhere!)

Quebec City Sugar Pie with Thick Cream

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2010
Tasty pie, though parts of it came out a little too gelatinous in texture. Maybe I should have taken it out of the oven earlier? I also wonder why the recipe calls for 2 eggs + 1 yolk. If I ever make this again, I might save myself the trouble and just use 3 full eggs. I didn't make the thick cream, but the pie is sweet enough on its own.

Orange Pudding Cakes With Marmalade Drizzle

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2010
I did this recipe all wrong but it turned out fine. First of all, make sure your eggs are at room temperature! I realized too late, and my whites just wouldn't turn into peaks, but I folded them in anyway. As well, instead of lemon juice I added more orange juice, and instead of "instant flour" I followed Chandycooks' advice and added 1/2 tsp baking powder to all-purpose flour. Then, since I didn't have ramekins, I baked the whole thing in a store-bought chocolate pie crust so it would end up looking at least a little like the (very misleading) picture. Mmm, chocolate + orange = delicious.

Chickpea Curry

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2006
Amazing. This was the first time I've tried making curry, but it was very easy and VERY tasty. I followed other reviewers' suggestions and used diced tomatoes instead of the chickpea can broth, plus 1 tsp ground cinnamon instead of 2 sticks, and 1/4 tsp ground cloves instead of 6 whole ones. The tomatoes (and the cilantro!) really added to the flavour, but even before I added them, the fragrance of the spices filled up the kitchen. This was a big hit with my housemates and I'll definitely be making it again!

Big Soft Ginger Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2010
I used spiced rum instead of water, and made sure to really squash them down (following OSHUN's advice) instead of leaving them as balls, and they came out beautifully!

Scones

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2010
I made these with Bailey's Irish Cream instead of milk and they came out with a lovely, subtle Bailey's flavour. Great recipe!

Applesauce Cookies II

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2010
Maybe it's because I used margarine instead of shortening (?), but my batter was really runny, and the cookies just came out flat and suuuper soft, nothing like the picture. Really tasty, but more like flat cakes than cookies.

Easy Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2007
I sprinkled ground cinnamon on top of one of the batches and THOSE cookies turned out delicious and MUCH better than the rest, which were kind of bland. Also, for all the cookies, I added extra vanilla and used margarine instead of butter, which made mixing by hand very easy.

Flapper Pie II

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2010
Holy cow, this was delicious! I used this recipe over the other flapper pie recipe on this site because it uses exactly 3 whites and 3 yolks, instead of only 2 yolks. Immediately after baking, the custard part tasted a bit eggy and I regretted the extra yolk, but by the next day it had set better and was wonderful. I used a store-bought pie-crust because another reviewer complained about the crust listed here.

Grandmother's Bread Pudding

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2010
Mmm, would definitely make this again. I used 2/3 cup brown sugar instead of 1 cup white, and replaced the pumpkin spice with 2tsp cinnamon + 1 tsp nutmeg. I also used a sliced ripe banana instead of raisins, following another reviewer's advice. In future, I'd probably use only 2 cups of milk for the sauce instead of 3, because it took forever to thicken.

Banana Banana Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2010
I've made this recipe dozens of times, sometimes with chocolate chips, sometimes without. There's a reason it's so highly rated: it's incredibly delicious, incredibly filling (it's very moist and heavy), and incredibly easy to make! Perfect warm OR cold. I can't recommend it enough.

Eggplant Parmesan II

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2012
I didn't bother with the salt and the draining recommended by other reviewers, and it was absolutely delicious anyway, no bitterness at all. I used huge black eggplants (as opposed to skinny Chinese eggplants), and the breaded slices were so big that I used a few of them, sliced thicker, for burgers the next day. Amazing. Baked eggplant is my new favourite thing.

Cream Cheese Pound Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2010
Wonderful. I added vanilla as other reviewers suggested, and baked in two round cake pans instead of a tube pan.

Pumpkin Bread IV

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2010
THIS RECIPE IS AMAZING. I have no insightful tips to add because it's absolutely perfect! I've made it four times now, as both loaves and muffins. I always 2/3 the recipe because a small can of pumpkin puree is 2 cups, but then I always kick myself for not buying an extra can.

Cajun Deviled Eggs

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2006
I followed other reviewers' advice and used just a pinch of salt instead of the full 1/2 tsp, and they turned out beautiful and delicious.

Spaghetti Squash I

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2012
Spaghetti squash on its own is pretty bland no matter what veggies you add. I added some pasta sauce and that helped quite a bit.

Bread Pudding II

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2010
I made it in a pie pan and it fit perfectly, and was easy to transport! I also used 1 cup powdered sugar instead of 3/4 cup granular, because powdered was all I had, and it ended up fine. Next time I might add a bit of nutmeg, but otherwise a fantastic recipe as-is. Anyone whose results were too eggy probably didn't mix enough.

Creamy Butternut Squash With Cinnamon Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2010
Soooo good!!! I made this in September and it was a perfect fall recipe. Spicy and hearty, and definitely filling enough to be an entree on its own. It fed me for days, and I never got bored of it. I should mention that, after reading other reviewers' suggestions, I roasted the squash beforehand.

Gulab Jamun

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2010
Difficult recipe to get right. The other reviewers were right about the dough not binding. Our batter also came out too goopy, even when we added more and more milk powder, making it difficult to even roll into balls. We ended up with a bunch of deep-fried patties instead, which were still tasty, but not ideal.
