Bacon Mushroom Swiss Meatloaf

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2009
Thumbs up from my husband and teen-age boys. The best meatloaf I've tried (so far). Will definitely make it again and have no hesitation to recommend it.

Italian Spaghetti Sauce with Meatballs

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2009
Not bad, but not excellent. There's nothing special to this recipe. The ingredients are basic. It taste good, but ordinary. I might make it again in the future. This recipe is great for lazy days. Those days when you don't feel like cooking anything too grand or complicated.

Simple 'N' Delicious Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2009
Really yummy. Easy to make. Moist and dark. Comes out perfect all the time. 10 serving shown here will make a small size cake. I doubled the recipe to make a good size birthday cake. Both kids and adults will enjoy this cake. A word of advice, this cake is sooo addictive especially for grown-ups. I think it's because it's not sweet at all so you feel less guilty when you eat it. I also made it into cupcakes and again, a success! It made about 8 or 9 regular size cupcakes. I think cupcake is a good serving size. It definitely helps me not to over indulge.

Sour Cream Pound Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2009
I used cupcakes instead of a rectangular pan. It came out beautiful. It made 11 good size cupcakes. The top is crunchy, the middle is moist and spongy. Nice to eat while still warm. To be successful in baking this cake or any cake you have to know your oven. Cakes bake at different temp because we use different size/height/width of pans or cupcakes. Keep in mind baking time/temp vary in oven performance as well (from electric, gas or fan-forced). You have to adjust the temp according to size/deepness of the pan you are using. I do think 375 is too hot to bake this cake. The top will burn quickly. My oven is a small fan-forced oven, I set the temp to 275 F. At 30 mins, I checked it - the top was golden brown but the toothpick came out with cake batter so i put it back for another 10 mins. So mine only took 40 mins to bake cupcakes. When I used a rectangular pan, I also set the temp at 275 and checked it at 30 mins. From there I checked it every 10 mins until a toothpick inserted into center of cake came out clean.

Beefy Chinese Dumplings

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2009
WOW! Taste like restaurant yumcha. I would suggest to use green onions. This gives the recipe an authentic oriental taste. I tried boiling and frying, both ways are delicious. About 500 grams ground beef will make 80 plus dumplings - that's if you fill it with 1 teaspoon(not heaping)per dumpling. Teaspoon size filling is good because wonton wrapping cooks so fast. If you put too much filling you will end up with burnt wonton, uncooked filling.If you are frying it, the temperature should not be too hot or the wonton wrapping will brown too quickly or burn.You can also freeze this recipe.I used glad wrap in between layers to prevent dumplings from sticking.No need to thaw out if using it frozen.Just make sure your water is boiling before dropping the dumplings.If frying your dumplings, your cooking oil temperature should be similar to frying an egg.This recipe is a keeper!

Tender Italian Baked Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2009
I made a mistake of mixing all ingredients including bread crumbs. doh! So I spread the mixture using butter knife on chicken breast, both sides. I think its important to use non-stick baking paper to brown both sides easily and easier to turn using large spatula, this way all crumbs stay put on chicken. I used medium thickness of chicken breast (if your chicken breast is thick, slice it in 3). The mixture covered 5 pieces. I baked it at 345 F.(fan-forced oven) keeping an eye on it because this coating tends to burn easily. I have a picture of how mine turned out. It was very tender at the same time the topping is crispy and delicious. Will keep making this.

Coconut Macaroon Brownies

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2009
Good, not excellent. It's too sweet. One piece is enough for the whole day. 100% guilt when you eat it. I can actually feel gaining weight while eating it. yikes! I'll probably make it again but will reduce sugar by 1 cup. Maybe increase the cocoa powder to 3/4 cup. I can't taste the chocolate because the sweetness is overwhelming. The coconut macaroon filling is super sweet. Check in 30 minutes of baking, you don't want to overbake or it will come out dry.

Allie's Mushroom Pizza

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2009
So yummy even my 3 year old daughter ate it. I used wholemeal lebanese bread or pita bread is also good. Then I put it in the oven on high to melt the cheese quickly and give it a bit of burn effect. It is very crispy and taste gourmet like woodfire pizza. I like that the filling are healthy for you. Thanks Allie.

Taste ordinary. Use good tasting stuffing mix because that's what your meatloaf will taste like.

Brooke's Best Bombshell Brownies

Wow! Moist & dark. I added sliced almonds and reduced the sugar to 2 cups and it was perfect. 3 cups of sugar is just too sweet. I found my favourite brownie recipe.
