Lemon Pie Bars

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2013
These were absolutely delicious and so very very easy. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because I read the comments and made 1 1/2 times the filling and that was just right. I accidentally doubled the lemon juice, though, so they were quite tart, but not in a bad way. Everybody loved them. Even my 5 year old daughter. I also didn't have quite enough butter so I used about 50g of Coconut Oil in the base. Will definitely make them again.

Banana Banana Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2012
I made this banana bread yesterday. I changed a few things to make it a little healthier for us. I used wholemeal flour in place of the all purpose and 1/2 cup Rapadura (evaporated cane juice) in place of the 3/4 cup sugar. I also threw in a handful of Chia seeds. When it was almost done, I realised I had forgotten to put the eggs in. I thought the bread will only serve as chicken food. Howerver, I was pleasantly surprised. It was still delicious and a hit with the kids. I can only imagine how yummy it would have been had I not forgotten the eggs.

Serbian Cevapcici

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2011
These were pretty tasty. However, they did not taste anything like the Cevapcici I am used to. My mother is half Serbian, half Slovenian and I have been to former Yugoslavia countless times. I have been assured by my Serbian grandmother that an authentic Cevapcici contains only pork & beef mince, salt and pepper and nothing else. And that the meat needs to rest for at least 24 hours after being mixed. I have no idea how true that is, but I am willing to bet that there are many variations that are all equally "authentic". Our Cevapcici were a little on the dry side, but I blame my husband for slightly overcooking them. This recipe makes more than just 4 serves if you ask me... Anyway, this was yummy and I will make it again with some minor alterations.

Easy Shake and Bake Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2011
This was very good. I would also increase the spices a little and found it tasted a bit too buttery, which is why I "only" gave it 4 stars. I used smoked paprika as I was out of normal paprika. I also had no sage so used a couple of other herbs and spices. My 4 year old who doesn't eat much had 2 drumsticks! Next time I will use a little butter and a little sunflower oil but probably use half the fat. I just don't think it needs quite that much. For those worried about all that fat: a lot of it stays in the pan and is not eaten. So it's not quite as fatty as it sounds. I will definitely make it again. So easy and foolproof.

German Baby

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2010
I just made this for the kids and I and it is delicious. I increased to 4 eggs, 1 cup milk, 1 cup flour, as my skillet is a little bigger. I also used half all purpose white and half wholemeal to make it a little more nutritious. It didn't really collapse after taking it out of the oven. but was absolutely delicious. Would serve about 4 people, I think. I think next time I would add a Tablespoon of sugar to the batter and put the apples on the bottom of the pan to make this even more delicious (if that's even possible). Thanks for sharing. I am German and had never even heard of a German Baby before. EDIT: I made this again on Sunday. When my daughter heard that I was making another "giant pancake", she got very excited. This time I added 1Tbsp sugar and a pinch of salt to the mix. I sliced and chopped 2 apples and laid them into the bottom of the dish with the butter and a small handful of sultanas. I sprinkled this with another Tablespoon of sugar and some cinnamon and placedd it in the oven while pre-heating for about 10 minutes. Then I poured the batter on top and baked for 20 minutes as per recipe. I served it with a little more cinnamon sugar. This was out of this world.

Famous Chicken Adobo

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2010
This was good, but a little heavy onn the pepper. i think I will reduce it a little next time. My Filippina sister in law makes her adobo without vinegar and reduces the sauce until it is quite thick and sticky (we actually call it sticky chicken). This caramelization makes it quite sweet without having to add any sugar. Serve this with chopped tomato, onion and soy sauce as a salad. Yum!

Baked Oatmeal II

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2010
Yum yum yum!!! I've never had baked oatmeal before. But this is just so delicious. I halved the sugar as per some of the previous reviews and as I only had about 2 1/2 cups of rolled oats left, I added 1/2 cup of flax meal crunchy bits to add some healthy omega 3 fats. Very good. My 3 year old climbed up onto the bench to help herself to some more :-)

German Chocolate Sauerkraut Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2010
This cake just sounded too weird. So I couldn't help but try it. It was absolutely delicious. I followed the recipe exactly and made a Swiss Merengue Buttercream Chocolate Frosting and covered the lot with rolled out Marzipan (I made it for my son's first birthday). Yummy. I pulsed the Sauerkraut in my food processor to make sure it's finely chopped as I had read the reviews about it being a little stringy for some. I then squeezed out any excess brine. Next time i might use a touch more Sauerkraut. And there will definitely be a next time. It is not THE BEST chocolate cake recipe I have ever had, but it is very good and I just love the gimmick of having Sauerkraut in a cake.

Avocado Dessert

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2010
Yum! I have always loved Indonesian avocado juice but since you use plain milk instead of sweetened condensed milk, it is easier for me to make with left over avocado since I don't usually have condensed milk at home. It also seems a little more nutritious. My kids loved it, too. I made it as per recipe for my 9 month old. It was nice and thick. For my 3 year old I added more milk to make a kind of avocado smoothie. Both loved it, even when I reduced the sugar a bit. I also omitted the vanilla extract as I love the avocado taste. I plan to make this often.

Focaccia Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2010
Very quick annd easy recipe. I made some changes, though: I used 2 cups plain flour and 3/4 wholemeal flour I added a little extra water to compensate for the more absorbant wholemeal flour. I replaced the vegetable oil with olive oil. I added rosemary both in the dough and on top Instead of putting the grated parmesan on top, I added it to the dough. I made dimples on top of the bread with my fingers (my 2 year old helped :-) for that authentic foccacia look. I also sprinkled a little fine celtic sea salt over the top. I used instant yeast, which does not need proofing (I think that's what the recipe should call for, rather than active yeast). But I still proofed it. It gives it a little head start. Very tasty, but the flavour comes mainly from the herbs, not really from the dough which is quite normal for such a quick bread. Will make it again.
