Honey Bun Cake

Reviewed: May 13, 2011
Very easy! I used 2 cups of white eggs, almost 1 cup of vege oil, doubled the filling, added small cut of peaches to the filling. I skipped the glaze and didn't miss it at all. Just nice with cream on side. It's so light I couldn't stop eating. My husband liked it but still prefers something else with chocolate. Thank you for the recipe! Will make this again as upside-down cakes next time.

Cottage Pudding - Upside Down Cake

Reviewed: May 1, 2011
Wonderful! Easy, fast & delicious! I made them in individual ramekins - had them warm with fresh cream. Husband raved about it and said that it could simply come from a fancy restaurant. I reduced white sugar but generous on brown sugar & butter. Will make this again and again with different fruits as it is so versatile. Thank you for the recipe.

Ninety Minute Cinnamon Rolls

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2011
Super easy and super yummy! I used whole wheat flour and turned out perfect. It was a bit sticky to knead but I just keep on adding flour while kneading until it came to a nice dough (it will never be smooth with whole wheat). Also, I let it rest it rest after lining up in baking pan for 2 hours because I wanted to bake them right before we sat for dinner. Result: warm, soft rolls for dessert. Had it with choc sauce. Love this! thank you for the recipe, GD!

Mimi's Giant Whole-Wheat Banana-Strawberry Muffins

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2011
Superb! I included 1/2cup oat as well. Mistakenly measured oil for 1/2cup, didn't use apple sauce at all, but used 1/4cup sour cream instead. Lightly mashed strawberries, and only used 1/2cup brown sugar. The result is DELIGHTFUL! Also picked up the best tip given by one of the reviewers: to only fold, not 'vigourously' stir. Thank you!

Easy Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2009
I love these cookies, and nineteen 5-yr olds in my class love them more! I'm supposed to make gingerbread men for a class activity but realized not all kids like ginger, so I made 2 batches of the dough and kept in fridge. Brought to school the next morning and the kids love free-moulding them into gingerbread man shapes (we didn't use cutters - much more fun!). These really expands (result: cute fat gingerbread men), and the taste is sooooo good. Oh, I used very soften margarine and reduced sugar to half. Perfect. Thanks for the recipe :)

Butterscotch Bread Pudding

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2009
Delicious! I used only 1/4 cup of sugar and still turned out fantastic - not sweet/not bland. I didn't use any butterscotch (couldn't get any here??), so I put pieces of apple & grated coconut on top. My husband ate 4/5 of the whole pudding (he's English). Thank you, Margaret.

Balsamic-Glazed Salmon Fillets

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2009
Great taste! Came home at 7 one day when I promised hubby dinner at 7.30. Saw this recipe; sauteed salmon fillets in pan - when cooked, put aside. Put glaze mixture in the same pan, let boiled. Add salmon, covered with glaze, simmer till preferred consistency. Wa-lah! Superb dinner in 15 mins! Thanks for the recipe :)

Smokin' Scovilles Turkey Chili

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2008
Absolute chili! Hubby's likes chili and always the one who cooks. But when I found this recipe and cooked it, he refused to cook anymore and let me make this all the time. I put our fav vege, yellow zucchini. Yumm. Thanks so much!

Favorite Banana Blueberry Quick Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2008
Moist, delicious & easy. I didn't use any pecan so I increased the oats. I don't like sugar sweet stuff so I used only 1/4 cup of sugar & 1 cup of frozen blueberries. I used sunflower oil instead of shortening, and sprinkled chopped almond on top prior to baking. Turned out great, hubby loves it! Thank you for the recipe - this one's a keeper.

Basil Pesto Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2008
Yummy. I used roasted garlic pesto bought from shop, used cheddar cheese (the only cheese in house), made these and served with salad for lazy Sunday lunch. Very easy & quick. Oh, and I too lightly toasted the baguette. Turned out fab. Thanks.

Banana Bran Muffins

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2008
My husband who likes cinnamon but does not believe in banana cakes, loves these. I didn't use any nut as I didn't have any at that time. He keeps asking me to make them again to bring to work. Thanks!

Salmon with Pineapple Tomato Salsa

Reviewed: Aug. 14, 2008
I've made this twice as hubby & I like the taste of the salmon - it's different & refreshing. I followed the recipe exactly but I grilled the fish on griddle pan until cooked, then poured the broth on top of fish - letting it bubbling away on pan for about 2 mins and the fish to absorb some broth without getting too soggy (we don't like soggy fish). Served with cool salsa... two thumbs up! Thanks :)

Chunky Potato Soup

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2008
Simple & yummy - this is a keeper. My husband loves soups and now this is his favorite. I did stir in 1/2 clove of garlic as mentioned by earlier reviewer, it gave that cannot-wait-to-eat-this aroma. Will put in sweet corn next time (I didn't have any at the time). Thank you for the recipe.

Matar Pulao (Rice with Peas)

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2008
This is good recipe but instead of plain water I use chicken broth or stock cube dissolved in water, and I use canned peas - added once rice cooked. Stir & leave in the steaming rice till served.
