Chinese Restaurant Almond Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2010
I wanted to bake something simple for Chinese New Year but was hesitant when I saw that the recipe called for lard. Then I remembered that I had some lard sitting in the fridge and whole almonds sitting in the cupboard and needed to get rid of both sooner or later - so what the heck. I kept thinking that my cookies would turn out smelling of pork. The dough smelled of pork so I added a tad more almond extract and vanilla. The smell from the oven smelled of pork. I thought there goes all my effort down the drain. When I tried the first cookie, I couldn't believe it. The pork smell was gone! The cookies were crisp and just like bought ones. My guests were also impressed! Thank you Rosina!

A Number One Egg Bread

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2008
Oh my goodness, Kevin... this is the softest and best braid I have ever made. Thank you for sharing the recipe. I made the dough in my bread machine and also took note of comments made by other reviewers. Firstly, I made 1/2 the quantity and baked only 20min (altho next time, I will make two and give away one since baking time is so short), doubled the quantity of sugar and substituted whole eggs for the egg yolks (ie. 6 egg yolks =3 eggs). Because I used whole eggs, I needed a bit more flour. I just added flour bit-by-bit and watched the dough form until I was satisfied with how it looked and felt. Still thought it could do with either a bit more salt or sugar - can't decide which one. Now this is how I've always wanted my braids to turn out but never succeeded. I can imagine this looking great if baked in a loaf tin too or with the addition of raisins.

Eileen's Spicy Gingerbread Men

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2006
My daughter loved these. One reviewer below said 3/4 cup molasses is a must. I followed her suggestion and found it too sweet for my taste. I think it depends on the brand you use or perhaps on the level of sweetness you are used to. So experiment.

Gobble Up Granola Snacks

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2006
This is very good and very versatile. The binding ingredients are the corn syrup, sugar and peanut butter. If you look at the other recipes on this site, they are basically all the same. I used Special K because I couldn't find Rice Crispies. I also ran out of oats so I just topped it up with choc chip muesli. And instead of raisins, I put chopped almonds because my daughter doesn't like raisins. As others have done, I am going to try honey next time. Tip: if the mixture hardens while mixing, just put it in the microwave for 20 seconds and continue. It was not easy to mix. I lined the pan with a big piece of foil, filled in the mixture, folded the foil over and used my hand to press it down firmly and evenly. Therefore, I did not have sticky hands, a sticky pan or a crumbly mixture like others have experienced.

Apricot/Cranberry Chutney

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2005
I haven't given this a 5 star because I am not a cranberry sauce expert. I used only 1/4 cup vinegar as suggested by others and also put in less than 3/4 cup sugar. The chutney still tastes good.

Cranberry Nut Bread I

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2005
This turned out perfectly and was very easy to make. However, I found the sweetness from the orange zest, juice, cranberries and sugar too overwhelming. Maybe it was because I used dried cranberries. My guests liked it though.

Creme Brulee French Toast

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2005
I found this good although a calorie bomb. I tried this twice and it did not look like the photo at all. There was alot of egg at the bottom but nevertheless wasn't a bad thing. I am not sure that 6 slices of bread is right. I had twelve slices and the egg mixture was still alot. I did reduce the sugar to 3/4 cup but still felt guilty eating it (because I am diabetic).

Fruitcake Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2005
I just came back to read my posted review and saw Olga's just below. Yes, it is true that if you 'drop by teaspoons' you will get mini cookies. I dropped them by heaped Tablespoons and then formed them into shape because some cookies in the first batch fell apart. I only made half the recipe and got over 90 cookies but the amount you get depends on how much dough you portion for one cookie. I thought they did look pretty - like homemade cookies and the cookies are chock full of fruits & nuts, it can only remind you of fruitcake. Besides, this is a cookie and not a cake. I still am not sure how they are supposed to taste but I am happy with the results.

Baked Omelet

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2005
Wow, this turned out great. I am having an Xmas Brunch at home this year and am looking for recipes which can be prepared beforehand. This will be one of my dishes. I didn't use Mozarella because I didn't have any and didn't miss it.

Cookie in a Jar

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2002
The recipe worked but I am not sure I like the taste. I had an oatey taste but I think it was because I only put 1/2 cup M&Ms instead of 1 cup to replace the white and dark choc chips. More chocolate would mask the oat taste. Some people complained of a runny, flat cookie so I just omitted the 2 Tbsp water and used a large egg instead. Other changes I made were to reduce the baking soda to 1/2 tsp and the white sugar to 1/4 cup.

Beef Pot Pie III

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2002
This is a nice filling. For the veggie part, I first sauteed some chopped onions, added the potatoes and carrots and sauteed a bit more, then added the broth. I put in a bay leave and some peppercorns to give it more flavour and removed them before putting into the pie.

Mrs. Fields Cookie Recipe I

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2002
These are great and reminded me of Mrs Field's cookies. You have to eat them fresh. The next day they weren't the same anymore.

Gingerbread Cutouts

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2002
I was in the midst of making my gingerbread house with another recipe when I ran out of dough for the roof. I decided to make more using this recipe. The dough baked well and looked promising. The next day however, when putting the roof together, the pieces broke into half! I had to use icing to glue them back. It was just too fragile and soft for making a house. But to be fair, the recipe does say 'shoe box size house'. It must be a very small one. In that case, I don't think the pieces would have broke. Also, this is not for eating - doesn't really taste that good.

Cornflake Cookies II

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2002
This is really good. I did however cut down the sugar to 3 oz. I would suggest making smaller cookies so that you get more crunch.
