Finnish Turnips

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2009
I love this recipe, but have to give it 4 out of 5 only because of the alterations I made to the recipe (I only give 5 out of 5 if I love the recipe after making it exactly as written). I use one medium turnip and halve the remainder of the ingredients. Also, I use 5% cream instead of heavy whipping cream and only a tablespoon of brown sugar Splenda instead of regular brown sugar. Not too sweet, and not too heavy. When I made this recipe with the modifications, my parents - who are both Finn and grew up on their respective mothers' turnip "casseroles" - said that these were the best turnips they'd ever had!

Finnish Style Mojakka

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2009
Mojakka is one of my favourite comfort foods. My mom makes the best mojakka. This is pretty much exactly the same way that she makes it except that she adds whole allspice (I'm honestly not sure how much... for a big pot, probably about a tablespoonful). The only problem I have whenever I try to make it myself is that the beef always turns out tough. I haven't figured out what I do wrong...

Heavenly White Cake

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2013
This is absolutely the best white cake recipe I have ever made. I've used it for a couple of family functions now to make cupcakes and everyone loves it. I use a maraschino cherry frosting with it that is delicious with the almond flavour. The only change I made to the recipe was to add 1/2 cup milk upon the suggestion of others, otherwise it is made exactly as written. I do agree that those who have not had luck with this cake may not have noticed that the recipe indicates to sift the flour before measuring. This is very important!
