Zucchini Corn Fritters

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2006
A bit bland, too much fat in the recipe in my opinion (I even cut the butter to less than half the required amount), a bit too sweet. Not horrible, but not that great. Good consistency though and they cook nicely. Of course, Ranch dressing would add flavour...

Simple Maple Syrup

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2006
Really easy, really simple, quick, and doesn't crystallize. I didn't add butter or anything else, just made the recipe as presented. Great on pancakes!

Homemade Candy Bars

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2006
The taste is very nice, the almonds add a great texture but the bars/squares didn't stay together. The icing stuck to the coconut mixture, but the coconut mixture did not adhere to the chocolate base at all. It was really messy to cut. Perhaps with another can of Condensed Milk to make the coconut and almond mixture more gooey it would stick. Not sure I'll give this another go. I'm very sorry :(

Whipped Shortbread Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2005
Taste is great but they are very crumbly. I can't think of what I did wrong... I followed suggestions by AMMYBUG and KTARDI ... and beat, and it was fluffy... but they are falling apart at the first bite, and they flattened out completely in the oven :( I tried another of William's recipe before and it was great! Might give them another go when I have a stand alone mixer, it seems to take too long (and almost burned the motor) of my cheap hand held mixer :) (maybe that's the problem... Hey! Santa! I need a nice mixer!!! *grin*) - they taste yummy though... I can't help but eat the ones that crumble!!

Sweet Chili Thai Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2005
Dipping sauce more than "pouring" sauce but can be thickened with more cornstarch. Nice to not have all those additives in there too, compared to the store bought ones. If your chile peppers are very hot, the sauce will be too. Mine is just bit too hot for me, but great for DH, I used three small very hot peppers - two of them without the seeds - and one larger, milder one, with the seeds.

Cheater Pancake Syrup

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2005
Nice and quick and close enough to fool most. I had to reduce the vanilla slightly as its taste was a bit too overpowering for me (I'm from Québec *wink*). I wonder if I could boil it a bit more and use it on snow... if I can find snow in Western Australia that is :) - note added Feb/06 this does crystallize, I'll make half a recipe from now on when making this.

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Muffins

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2005
We love those. Didn't have any walnuts on hand. Substituted apple sauce for the oil (great results), used 2 tsp baking powder and 1 tsp baking soda instead of 4 tsp baking soda (yes, you can taste it a bit), and used rolled oats instead of quick cooking oats. Didn't use the topping but would for a special occasion. They are just as nice with apple sauce instead of oil IMO. A keeper!

Chocolate Pudding Cake III

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2005
This was great! A bit weird to make but so quick and the results are very nice (and oh-so-chocolatey!)! We didn't notice any scorched taste, mixed everything in the pan, just as per the instructions, made the mistake of putting the whole 1/2 cup cocoa in the mix, so I just added another 1/4 cup on top and it was still great! (Will do it right the next time though). I also didn't have any mini chips so I used regular ones. We all loved it. Next time I will make it with the children as it's so easy and fun to make, and quick!! Thanks Carol!

Chocolate Sauce

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2005
I made it as per the recipe and it was really nice. It's got that dark chocolate taste which Hubby and I like a lot but the children liked it too. It was very quick to make, and also seems to have improved from being stored in the fridge for a couple of days, it almost seems as it thickened a bit (probably from being cold). It is a thin sauce, not the kind of stuff you buy in stores. I like it that way, a bit goes a long way. We'll be making it again. And like KRYSTENL said, it makes wicked chocolate milks!

Egg Noodles

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2005
This was my very first time making noodles and I had a great time. The whole family liked them (DH, and 6 yo daughters included). The dough was perfectly fine for my pasta maker. I wouldn't change a thing to the recipe (though might try to flavour with herbs next time!). I did use Australian measuring cups (which contain slightly more than US ones), perhaps that helped my dough! :)

Oatmeal Peanut Butter and Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2005
We really liked those. Not too sweet, not too peanut buttery, not too chocolatey, just really nice, and soft and crunchy at the same time. Mine looked nothing like the ones in the photo, but were still quite edible :) My batter was of a great consistency, I had no problems with this recipe (unlike other people did). Might add chopped pecans to them next time, for extra crunch. Yes, we'll be having them again! I also froze half the mixture to cook at a later date and that worked really nicely too. I chopped slices of the frozen dough and baked as per the directions. Yum!!!

Busy Day Cocoa Icing

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2004
Great icing, kept it's consistency despite a warm day and waiting in a car parked in the shade until the "cake moment" at a big outdoors birthday party this weekend. I used this icing on the Crazy Chocolate Cake, and everyone LOVED the combination. I left the icing out to soften quite a bit and applied it to a cold cake, then put the cake back in the fridge. It was the easiest icing to apply that I've ever worked with! Definitely a new favourite in this house! I think just about everyone came back for seconds (good thing I had bake two cakes, since we have twin girls!).

Crazy Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2004
Great recipe! I was very careful to use the right measurements living in Australia (our cups and US Cups are slightly different) and it turned out PERFECT! I did use a glass pan too and greased it, cooking at a lower temperature. Made the "Busy Day Cocoa Icing" to go with it. We had a party for our twin 6yo daughters this weekend, 24+ children and parents, some children with egg allergies, and everyone LOVED the cake, they said it was moist, and that you couldn't tell it didn't have eggs. I will be making this one again!! My friend whose daughter is allergic to eggs wants the recipe! Of course I'll share it with her!

Best Spinach Dip Ever

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2004
Excellent recipe. I made it with low-fat mayo and potato and leek soup (that's all I could find) and it was perfect. We had a birthday party for our 6yo twin girls and all the parents raved about the recipe and want a copy! I'm making it again for a monthly meeting of crafters in two weeks! I feel confident they will also love it. I did cut an extra baguette in half then in slices (to make semi-circle pieces) as it did need more bread for dipping, than just the inside of the round loaf.

Zucchini Soup I

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2001
I made this soup with vegetable broth instead of chicken broth (we had a vegetarian visitor) and it was fabulous, either hot or cold! I will definitely make this one again!

Squash Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2000
This pie is gorgeous! I made it in a "Marie cookie crust" (can't get Graham crackers here in Australia) and the pie tasted really good!It was delicious and not overly spicy like other recipes. It also looked really nice when it came out of the oven! Thanks for submitting this recipe, Carol! My toddlers don't eat this yet but I'm sure it's a taste that would please most kids too so I have to give it a 4 for that section :o)

Choc-Oat-PB Bars

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2000
YUMMM!!! They are indeed better than the no-bake cookies! I made them with crunchy peanut butter... and will be making them again! As sweet as fudge but with that "little extra"!

Zucchini Patties

Reviewed: May 28, 2000
I had to give it a 3 for kid rating because I have no idea how kids would react to it, my daughters are too young to appreciate the flavour! This recipe is GREAT! I do highly recommend that you wring all possible water out of the zucchinis. I do this by wrapping them in a clean tea towel and squeezing as much water I can. I also found that making this recipe in advance and leaving it in the fridge 1 hour or more, enhances the flavour. I will DEFINITELY be making that one again, and again, and again!

Mother's Banana Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2000
That doctor is one doctor I'd trust!!! This recipe came out perfectly every time I've made it. I've been making it for my daughters since they were about 1 yr old (they are 18 months now) and they love it, so does my husband. One time, I didn't have quite enough bananas so I added pureed canned peaches to make up the missing bit, it was very nice too. I've been making it without the nuts for the benefit of the little ones. I have also used a bit less sugar with perfect results. This bread looks great when you take it out of the oven, nice and golden! Highly recommended!
