Banana Coconut Loaf

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2014
I like this recipe a lot, but as written it's too sweet. I use half a cup of sugar. I also substitute coconut oil for half of the melted butter, and whole wheat for half of the flour... still lots of calories, but a bit healthier. :-) To make mini muffins instead of a loaf, add 1/4 cup of milk to the egg mixture, and bake in lined muffin tins for 18 minutes. Makes 18 mini muffins.

Hot Spiced Christmas Wine

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2013
Delicious... I used whole cloves & added allspice berries too... gets even better as it steeps longer and the ginger bite comes out.

Sausage Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2013
Delicious! I made it without pasta and used chicken sausage and fresh basil and parsley from the garden, with a few red pepper flakes as suggested by others.

Oma's Rhubarb Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2013
Delicious - a hit with the whole family. I didn't have sour cream on hand, so I used regular whipping cream and a squeeze of lemon juice instead. I also added a teaspoon of vanilla, as another reviewer suggested. Light and moist cake, crunchy topping - perfect!

Bow Ties with Sausage, Tomatoes and Cream

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2013
Fantastic - delicious, and so easy. I used spicy sausage, and cut down the pepper flakes a bit. Looking forward toto leftovers tomorrow!

Rhubarb Sauce II

Reviewed: Jul. 1, 2011
I like the addition of butter in this recipe. Four cups of rhubarb is about 6 good-sized stalks. Slice fresh rhubarb quickly and easily with a Mandoline Slicer. Can also be cooked in a solar oven.

Creamy Rice Pudding

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2010
I usually make baked rice pudding, but this was faster, easier, and yummier! I used 1 1/4 cups of milk and 1/2 cup cream in all, and it only needed about 10 minutes to cook before I put in the egg etc. I also used coconut oil instead of butter. My kids gobbled it up... our new family favorite. :)

Flan II

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2010
Delicious and not too sweet. I chose this recipe because I didn't have any sweetened condensed milk on hand. I used 1/2 milk and 1/2 cream, and 3 egg yolks + 1 whole egg. I had a few bubbles in it, but it was still a hit.

Moravian Ginger Cookies II

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2010
Great recipe... the spices are just right, and the crispy texture is great. I used coconut oil instead of shortening, and reduced the chilling time to an hour. The dough is quite sticky, so I used plenty of flour to roll and a plastic spatula to lift the cookies. Family and friends loved these... I will definitely make them again!

Burmese Chicken Curry (Gaeng Gai Bama)

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2010
Good and spicy! I used just one tablespoon of curry paste (my family likes it mild) but it still had a pretty good kick. My one complaint was that it was a bit runny... next time I will use less water to cook the chicken ("to cover" was too much).

Rustic Autumn Fruit Tart

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2010
Delicious, and gorgeous. I made this for two dinner parties, and got great reviews at both, especially for the crust. I used allspice instead of cardamom, and added an extra pear and a little extra cornstarch (the fruit was juicy).

Snow Balls in a Jar

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2009
I didn't give jars as gifts, but I did make the recipe and these are absolutely delicious. A bit time consuming to roll all the little balls, but worth the effort!

Sour Cream Chicken Paprika

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2009
Great recipe. The sour cream gives it just the right bite and creaminess. I doubled the paprika though (my family likes it spicy).

Cod with Italian Crumb Topping

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2009
Yum! Good easy and quick recipe. I tried the topping on steamed broccoli, too -- popped it under the grill for a few minutes... very tasty.

Seven Minute Frosting II

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2009
Makes a GENEROUS amount for filling and frosting a nine-inch cake. This frosting is yummy, but the texture is not quite like I remember it as a kid... it's more marshmallowy and gelatinous. My mum's recipe did not use corn syrup, so maybe that's why. Great with dark chocolate cake.

One Bowl Chocolate Cake III

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2009
Incredibly fast and simple to make, perfectly moist and delicious. The recipe is resilient, too -- I added an extra tablespoon of cocoa, subtracted 1/4 cup of sugar, and substituted half whole-wheat flour, and it worked out great. Excellent with 7-minute frosting.

Strawberry Cobbler I

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2009
Very easy and yummy! I used whole wheat flour and a touch more milk. My advice would be to use a 2-quart dish that is deep rather than long, otherwise the topping seems a bit skimpy.

Mom's Chicken Paprika

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2009
meh... I tried this recipe because I didn't have any sour cream on hand, but I think it came out a bit bland. I will go back to my sour cream recipe next time, and I will buy some better paprika (the hot red kind, not the mild brown kind).

Rolled Buttercream Fondant

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2009
Very easy, very tasty. I used butter instead of shortening (who ever heard of buttercream without butter? :) ) and a little more sugar than was called for (about a cup). If you use butter, you can leave out the salt.
