Christmas Cake

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2013
Love this! I have made this for my Christmas party 3 years in a row and everyone loves it! Someone who had it two years ago was still talking about it when I met her recently. I reduce the sugar by at least half - it is more than sweet enough with all the fruit. And I add candied ginger.

Chicken Jalfrezi

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2012
Made it for a dinner party - was excellent and well received. Except, did not have the thick consistency I was expecting with a Jalfrezi. It was more like a dry-ish chicken curry. But while it did not meet my personal expectations, that was probably because I was looking to re-create something specific. Taste-wise, was excellent!

Pumpkin Ginger Cupcakes

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2012
Absolutely fabulous!! Someone else wrote that they knew that they would be leaving a 5-star review already during the baking process. I felt the same! I followed the recipe exactly as it is this time, except that I left out the ground cloves (as I did not have any). I also made the pumpkin purée and crystallized ginger myself. Next time, I will definitely add ground cloves, but will probably reduce sugar. They are by no means too sweet, but I prefer not to use too much sugar in general. But other than that, the muffins were perfect!! They don´t need any icing or topping, but for a party, it would of course add to the aesthetic value. And if adding an icing, then I would all the more reduce sugar.

Gourmet Mushroom Risotto

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2012
I ended up using a big red onion because that was all I had, and wild mushrooms instead but in roughly the same quantity. Loved it!! I don´t know why people say there was too much mushrooms, my husband and I loved it like that. Would definitely make it again.

Apple Muffins

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2012
I made this to take to a tea party, and they were so good my hosts thought that I had bought them!! I followed the recipe almost exactly, except that I used 2 cups of apples instead of one (just cos I LOVE apples) and 2 teaspoons of cinnamon instead (just cos I also LOVE cinnamon!). This definitely goes into my permanent muffin recipe collection!

Soft Gingersnaps

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2011
Excellent!! Except a little bit too sweet for my taste, and I already have a sweet tooth. Will reduce sugar next time, mostly because everyone around me are not big sugar fans, but there will definitely be many more "next times". Thanks for the recipe - it´s definitely going in my collection.
