Strawberry Cheesecake French Toast

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2014
This was sooo yummy! I used more fresh strawberries for the sauce than called for, and didn't bother with the whipped cream or powdered sugar. I also used cheap sliced bread, and put a little bit of flour in egg mix - also some cinnamon as you can't have french toast without cinnamon! Definitely substitute powdered/icing sugar for the white sugar in the cream cheese, makes it smooth. For those who think this might be too sickly sweet, I found this to be less sweet than using traditional maple syrup. Highly recommended and fairly easy to make

Sourdough Scones

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2013
I tweaked this recipe to make a more traditional english scone to be served with jam and cream, by omitting the apple pie spice and replacing the 1/2 cup sugar with only 1 teaspoon of sugar (as my starter is already quite sweet). Also, my starter is thick so I needed to add about 1/4 cup of milk to make the dough come together. I also cut the dough into small rounds, but forgot to decrease the baking time (oops!). Nevertheless, these were a huge hit at a baby shower and several people have asked for the recipe and for their own sourdough starter. This is a very easy recipe, thanks!

Best Potatoes You'll Ever Taste

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2012
took these to a bbq with friends, and they were a big hit. I followed the recipe (scaled up to feed a large group), except i subbed about 1/3 of the lite mayo with sour cream, and i added some smoked paprika. i also sprinkled fresh parmesan cheese at the end of cooking, and i think the cheese really made the flavour come together. you'll need a lot of salt, which is typical of potato dishes. overall, a very nice dish and a good change from the usual potato salad or scalloped potatoes you usually see at a bbq.

Chicken and Lentils

Reviewed: Jul. 22, 2012
This was extremely tasty! I've never made lentils before, but I'm now a convert. I changed the recipe slightly: soaked 1/2 cup dried brown lentils for about 2 hours before cooking; used chicken breast diced up into large pieces instead of bone-in chicken pieces, and seasoned with salt and pepper when cooking them. kept all other ingredients in the same amounts, so it made the final result a little more liquidy. I subbed fresh chopped tomatoes for the tomato sauce. I was going for a more middle-eastern taste, so I subbed 1 tsp cumin and 1/2 tsp baharat spice blend (google it!) for the rosemary and basil. stirred through lemon juice and plain yoghurt at the end, served over basmati rice and it was fab! If I had any fresh mint, I would've added that too. great recipe for lentil virgins :)

Strawberry Muffins

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2011
these muffins are very yummy! like other reviewers, i made a few adjustments: added 1/2 c brown sugar, 1/2 tsp cinnamon, 1/2 tsp vanilla, and decreased flour by 1/4 cup. i also used at least 1 1/2 cups of fresh strawberries (i think if you use much more than this, there's not enough batter to separate the strawberries and the inside of the muffin gets a bit gooey). I diced them up really small to make sure there was strawberry goodness in every bite. oh, and i got 12 regular-sized muffins. i can't decide if they are better with cinnamon sugar sprinkled on top, or by themselves. must try a few more just to be sure.....!

One Bowl Brownies

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2011
this is an excellent brownie recipe, which i make ALL the time, with a few modifications: I more than double the amount of chocolate to 250gms of 62% dark chocolate (in NZ the bars are this size and it is just too much effort to measure out 200gms), decrease sugar to 1 cup white and 3/4 cup brown, decrease eggs to 2 and substitute a generous tablespoon of sour cream (i'd read that you could sub 1 tbsp yoghurt for 1 egg), increase vanilla to 2 tsp, add 1/2 tsp baking powder and 1/4 tsp salt, and leave out the nuts. i know this is a lot of changes, but we love the result. i just tried the sour cream substitution today (ran out of eggs) and it really added a nice subtle creamy note to the taste. ALSO, i line the pan with baking/parchment paper and the brownies never stick, plus it's so easy to clean up.

Broccoli and Garlic Penne Pasta

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2008
Surprising light and tasty, and quite easy to make. I did tweak the recipe a bit: - doubled the broth, - substituted 1 1/2 Tbsp fresh basil for the dried stuff - added extra garlic - added 1 chicken breast, cubed (for 2 people) - added 1 1/2 Tbsp each cornflour and water to thicken it I cooked the chicken in the broth for about 5-7 minutes before adding the broccoli. Don't be tempted to skip the lemon juice on the cooked pasta - it really adds a bit of zip to the whole dish.

Green Rice I

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2008
My husband despises spinach, but he LOVES this dish. The first time I made it, he turned down a second helping of meat so he could have extra green rice! Like others, I added garlic powder, mixed herbs/italian seasoning, salt and pepper and doubled the amount of cheese. I also substituted regular milk + butter for the evaporated milk.

Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2003
This recipe is fantastic! My husband, who thought i was mad for putting courgettes (zucchini) into sweet bread, can't get enough. I did reduce the sugar by 1/4 c per loaf, as I was using milk chocolate chips rather than semi-sweet. I also made a loaf with chopped walnuts. Yum yum!

Gingerbread People

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2003
This is the first time i've made gingerbread cookies, and these were fantastic. I live in New Zealand, and used Golden Syrup instead of corn syrup or molasses (as one reviewer suggested). I also didn't use ginger, as I was out. I know, gingerbread cookies without ginger? I added a bit more cinnamon and used nutmeg instead. The cookies weren't at all spicy-hot (probably because of the lack of ginger), but they tasted wonderful! Can't wait to make more.
