Zucchini Cake III

Reviewed: May 4, 2007
I halved the recipe and baked it in a 8inch round pan for 35 mins, to be honest it could have done with 5 more minutes. Very moist and delicious. I also used the remaining pineapple juice from the can with some confectioner's sugar and drizzled it over the warm cake. Will definately make again but will coat the walnuts in flour as mine all sunk to the bottom and peel the zucchini as the green flecks are a bit off putting. Thank you!

Country Seed Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2006
I didn't have any wholewheat flour so just used white bread flour. I also made a boo boo and put in 3 cups of flour so added an extra 1/2 cup of water and 2 tsps of honey (we like it sweeter). I also mixed the yeast with warmed water and, as my bread machine likes the wet ingredients first, let it sit in the bread machine with the other ingredients. This actually rose over the top of the pan and tastes like shop bought unsliced bread. Toasting the seeds really helps with the flavour. I will use this as my new basic bread recipe from now on and make alterations to make wholemeal, white, malted etc. Thankyou xx

Butternut Squash, Apple, Onion Au Gratin

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2006
I made this as a main dish (serves 4) served with crusty bread. I didn't have 4 apples in so used 1 apple, 1 onion finely sliced, 6 small new potatoes and 1/2 cup apple juice and 1/2 cup veggie stock. Next time I would halve the amount of liquid as it was quite soupy, add pepper and some chilli flakes or similar to give it a bit of a kick. Veg was sliced to 0.5 to 1cm and it took the right amount of time to cook to perfection. Simple to make and tasty too.

Curry Pasta Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2006
Made this with normal pasta not tri-colour, didn't have any tofu so omitted that and used yogurt instead of mayo to make it healthier. Doubled up all the ingredients except for the pasta as others suggested.Absolutely delicious, tasted very much like coronation chicken. Needs to be eaten on the same day or the pasta absorbs all the sauce, I revived it with a little olive oil.

Banana Oat Muffins

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2006
I made these using sweetener rather than sugar and low fat yoghurt instead of sour cream to make them healthier. I liked the idea and taste of the ground oats, makes them more dense. As I don't have any muffin cases I made these in smaller bun cases and only cooked them for 20 minutes. I didn't top them just sprinkled them with brown sugar (again for health reasons). Absolutely delicous and tasted very much like professional muffins. I lovely change to banana bread. The recipe made 26 muffin buns.

Roast Chicken with Rosemary

Reviewed: May 30, 2006
Good simple recipe but I expected a more herby flavour. Following other reccomendations I added 3 crushed cloves of garlic to the cavity; rubbed olive oil, salt, pepper and crushed rosemary into the skin and cooked it by the 20mins per pound (500g) rule. No moister than my normal roast chicken. May have to get over the squeamishness and rub flavourings under the skin too. The juices and the onions, rosemary and garlic from the cavity made an excellent gravy using gravy powder, water and white wine.

Cream Cheese Frosting II

Reviewed: May 28, 2006
Never made this before but it was so simple and delicious. Topped the "carrot cake" recipe from this site. Make sure your butter is warm and soft tho or you end up with bits of butter all mixed through it. Added a bit more sugar as others recommended. Delicious.

Carrot Cake

Reviewed: May 28, 2006
Lovely cake. I made it with pecans instead of walnuts and halved the recipe to make one 9inch round cake. Topped it with cream cheese frosting II. nice and moist. Didn't find it too heavy or light.

Black Magic Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2006
Lovely chocolatey cake that doesn't taste of coffee. I halved the recipe and topped it with the coffee frosting as suggested (didn't really like the frosting) think a plain vanilla frosting would work better. I also served this up warm with thick heavy cream. Even better and not too sickly. Edit (02/03/2008) Made this again and it came out really heavy and oily tasting. As the first was such a success I made it for when friends came over and was very disappointed. Not sure what happened but don't think I'll risk it again.

Banana Nut Bread II

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2006
Excellent, moist bread and sooo easy to make. I added 1 tsp of vanilla essence and gave the ingredients a quick mix first as I was worried about pockets of flour as one reviewer said. Am gonna make this for my friends last day at work on Sunday - mmmm.

Jeanie's Falafel

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2005
Didn't have any cilantro (coriander) leaves so added mint, and lemon juice to moisten it with a little olive oil. shallow fried them too and came out fine but would imagine they would be a lot crispier deep fried. Made 8 small burgers about 2inches by 1/2 inch, perfect for us 2 served in pittas with salad and a corn-on-the-cob on the side. Very nice would make these again. Thanks x

Pasta Fagioli

Reviewed: May 16, 2005
Made this with normal pasta not spinach on several occasions. Now a regular in my house, I even remember this one of the top of my house now! Yummy but don't freeze and reheat it unless you don't mind tha pasta absorbing all the sauce

Hot Spiced Cider

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2005
I used Alcoholic cider and brewed this in a slow cooker for about half an hour before my guests on boxing day arrived. went down so well I kept having to top it up and guess the amounts. Added a little bit of dark rum to give it extra pep. Found this to be an excellent base and will be making it again for next year. Thank you - went down a treat.

Andrea's Pasta Fagioli

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2005
Very simple and the end result is much better than I expected it to be from the simple ingredients. Added a splash of tobasco for extra pep and had to keep adding water so it didn't dry out. Excellent as a hearty soup on day 1 and then when warmed up the next day as a thick flavoursome pasta and sauce dish. will defo make again

Pasta With Tuna Sauce

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2004
This was very good - scaled down the recipe for just little ol' me and it cooked in the time my pasta did - 15 mins total cooking & prep time IMO. Was not bland but did season it with pepper (no salt as tuna was in brine) and added a bit of gravy granules to thicken it up. No capers so chopped some gerkhins. Would add lemon right at end next time as quite tangy. Would make again if Mr B is out.

Indian Style Basmati Rice

Reviewed: Jul. 2, 2004
lovely flavour similar to our local takeaways. not too overpowering so won't overshadow the main dish. water looks very muddy and murky while cooking but don't be put off by this.

Chicken Korma II

Reviewed: Jul. 2, 2004
This recipe is nothing special - thought I'd try it over my usual korma recipe which I'll be going back to. Nice but not amazing think I prefer kormas with coconut cream in.

Porridge

Reviewed: Jul. 1, 2004
I am a porridge eater normally but was looking for a recipe similar to what the Hari Krishna tent serves up at the Glastonbury festival in the UK, which is spicy, sweet and breakfasty too. I found I needed to add more cinnamon to this and poured honey over it too or it would have been bland. I also used sultanas instead of bananas as the one I had previously had sultanas. Not a very exciting recipe but not bad either
