Sweet potato pie!!!
orange ginger bread men
About this Cook
I am a passionate home cook and I have a soft spot for anything I can make in the oven. I was born in Fiji and I'm half Polynesian and half Chinese so I often cook Polynesian and Cantonese food at home but I love cooking other cultural dishes. I don't like to discriminate, as long as it looks good and doesn't have a long ingredient list I'm happy to attempt it :)

Zucchini Slice
I remembered the first time I've ever had zucchini slice it was amazing and when I found this recipe I couldn't wait to try it out. I made a few changes: 1). I didn't use the recommended size tray, I used my normal tray that I roast veges in and increased the cooking time to 50mins. 2). I replaced the onion for 1 grated carrot because it added more color to the dish. 3). Instead of swiss I used one cup of colby cheese because swiss is too mild. 4) I added one cup of bacon and also added salt and pepper. 5) I added only 1/4 cup of canola oil. Next time I am going to add 1/4 tsp of onion powder to give it an extra bit of savory flavor.

Gingerbread Boys
This is the first time I have ever made ginger bread men. This dough is very easy to make but is rock hard as soon as it comes out of the fridge also, when it becomes soft its simply too fragile!!! You'll need to roll the dough out between two sheets of baking paper to make your life easy. Next time I make this I will add in a little less sugar and a little less bi-carb cause I could slightly taste the bitterness from the bi-carb when they came out of the oven. Other than all this the cookies were wonderful... crispy just the way I like them. Made a heart shaped one for our anniversary, my boyfriend liked it!!!

Sweet Potato Pie I
I have never had sweet potato pie before but this tastes fantastic. My boyfriend loved it and it was a huge hit at work that people asked for the recipe!!! I used two cups of orange sweet potato mash and two tbps of plan flour as suggested by some of the reviewers and it turned out wonderful... I used full cream milk and I didn't have enough nutmeg so I put 1 tbp of Cinnamon instead. I used the Pie Crust IV recipe from this site which was perfect. Thank you for this great recipe
