Lemon Yogurt Pound Cake with Lemon Glaze

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2011
Best textured and flavoured cake I've ever made and I've made a lot of cakes. Our daughter, who went to university in America, jumped to her feet as I brought the cake into the dinning room demanding to know if it was pound cake. I wasn't sure for a couple of seconds if I was doing the right thing or the wrong thing she was so straight faced. It was the right thing and the entire cake was gone within 24 hours. It is now our celebration cake. Thank you so much for sharing. I'm trotting it out to an invitation day on Sunday so that Australians can become acquainted with a pound cake.

Fresh Rhubarb Pie

Reviewed: May 30, 2010
Fantastic results! Added the cinnamon and a little vanilla as suggested in other reviews. The most perfect balance of flavours and textures...almost forgot brushed the top of the pie with milk and sprinkled with sugar for a crisp top - as suggested on other reviews. Can't believe the wonderful result.

Pastry for Double Pie-Crust

Reviewed: May 30, 2010
Perfect pastry and from an almost beginner. I did use the food processor on the butter and flour emptied it out ( hate to have to clean it all out after the water is added) then added the water to the dry mix in a separate bowl. Added some sugar as suggested for a sweet pie filling. Thanks for this recipe.

Apple Lemon with Cinnamon Muffins

Reviewed: May 27, 2010
Planned to make this recipe today, made them as people arrived left, right and center. Not one left for later! Everyone agreed they are fantastic. Made as per the recipe. The electrician installing the solar panels on the roof couldn't resist inquiring what was baking, apparently the aroma was wonderful - they enjoyed the muffins as well. Thanks for the great recipe. Carol.

Children's Gingerbread House

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2010
This was a fabulous experience for myself and two children to enjoy. Here we were in Australia with a temperature in the low 40s C and we were making little cottages with pretend snow adornments. Finding the molasses took days then we were away. The recipe was followed to the letter and it worked out perfectly for us first timers. We did frame the houses, we made two, in the heat the construction and decoration just followed on as it all dried so quickly. Thank you for sharing this recipe and we are planning to make it each year.

Chocolate Crinkles II

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2009
As a family we are now addicted to these Crinkles! We are Australian and haven't ever come across anything like this before. First of all I'd thought to practice them with a view to having them as a Christmas treat....good idea. Have made them once a week for three weeks now and there is no sign of the requests letting up. Thank you for sharing this amazing treat Ingrid. Carol.

Smothered Bacon Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2009
Delicious! Used the plain yogurt instead of sour cream - all I had on hand. Didn't have any soup either !! used a couple of spoonfulls of a powdered base for 'apricot and chicken casserole' so the liquid came only from the yoghurt. Used a slice of dark rye bread underneath the chicken to soak up the wonderful juice, served with green beans. My husband is on his second helping already. Highly recommended.

Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2009
Wonderful flavour, easy to follow recipe. Did use 1/2 cup of butter to replace 1/2 cup of oil, everything else as stated OOPS! no I baked fresh pumpkin for the puree. Highly recommended! Since the above review I have made the recipe many times as muffins. Revisiting my daughter this week I found a few of the muffins left for over a week covered on the kitchen bench and the children still enjoying them after school. I ate one just to be sure and yes they are a little less moist but still delicious and obviously keep extremely well.

Jazzy Green Bean Casserole

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2009
Delicious way with vegies. Cooked frozen beans then added 2 'cup'a'soup' packets (pumpkin) to the beans and the water they were cooked in. Used lite cheese as that was all I had on hand some cheddar and some mozerella mixed in sauted onion. Pretty much what was on hand all mixed in very tasty.

Lemon Cupcakes

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2009
Making these I was back in my Nanna's kitchen as she creamed by hand the butter and sugar to make the lightest most delicious cup cakes. Was tempted to half the butter as suggested..it was for a special occasion with a sensational result. Did add the extra lemon juice and rind and am thinking next time to maybe add a little more. Love the recipe. At last cup cakes like Nanna made. Can you picture your Nanna bowl in the crook of her elbow creaming the butter and sugar with the heat of her hand? Not acceptable these days and yet we weren't ever ill. Carol.

Can't Tell They're Low-fat Brownies

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2009
Made these exactly to the recipe and we have enjoyed them very much. Didn't go to the effort of cutting them into 24... sort of defeats the low cal. Plan to be stronger next time. There will be many more 'next time's . Carol

Busy Day Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2009
I had skinless chicken thigh fillets on hand so used those in place of a whole chicken. Cooked for 6.5 hours before turning off cooker. Really haven't ever had an easier delicious dinner. Going into the family favourite file. Thank you for sharing. Carol.

Slow-Cooker Barbecue Ribs

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2009
Sensational! The temperature outside is just above freezing a perfect recipe for a cosy night at home. Made as listed with even my husband who is not usually in favour of very tasty food forcing himself not to lick his plate after two servings. A winner! Thank you. Carol

Sweet Dinner Rolls

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2009
How lucky was I to choose to make this recipe as my introduction to the site. It was a delicious success so much so that I've made it twice in one week. It wonderful to use yeast and to bake something as popular as these rolls are. Thank you. Carol
