Blackberry Pie I

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2004
Delicious. I made it twice in a week with freshly picked blackberries. I used the Oil Pie Crust recipe submitted by Donna - I would suggest making perhaps 2 batches of the dough though. Such a great pie. Fabulous with vanilla icecream.

Shaker Lemon Pie

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2003
I used 3 lemons (as suggested in a very similar recipe on this site) very finely sliced, finely shredded the zest and used half of a lemon's worth in the actual recipe, I used shortcrust pastry sheets store-bought and I let my lemon/sugar mixture sit o/night in the fridge. I love lemon but I would suggest to go with 2 smallish lemons or perhaps 1 large one (all of mine were much larger than tennis balls..). I didnt mind the texture like this - but I could still see it would be better if you put your mixture in the blender before you make your pie in my opinion. Using 3 large lemons this was extremely tangy, but would be lovely if you put a couple of scoops of vanilla ice-cream with it when you serve it.

Carrot Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 7, 2003
This was the most awesome carrot cake ever - I took it to a party and it was consumed in no time. My warning to you all is to be careful NOT to use low-fat cream when making the cream cheese frosting - low-fat cream DOESNT WHIP and so will give you a runny mess... read the cream package carefully ;)

Terry's Favorite Easy Chicken Pie

Reviewed: May 11, 2003
Such an easy, quick and tasty pie. Id never made a pie before and was just crossing my fingers, but my guests LOVED it. I used short-crust pastry, my food processor to combine the cream cheese and soup and I baked in a glass pie-dish. SO TASTY!! This one is a new favourite for sure.

Old German Honey Cookies

Reviewed: May 6, 2003
Nice simple honey cookies. I used 1 1/4 cups honey + 1/2 cup sugar rather than the 1 cup sugar/1 cup honey as recommended (Im a beekeeper, no shortage of honey here) and 150g butter rather than shortening. They're a soft cookie sort of in the way gingerbread is soft. Lightly honey-flavoured and perfect for dunking in some hot chocolate or tea.

Whole Wheat Apple Muffins

Reviewed: May 4, 2003
Being a beekeeper I saw this recipe as a great way to use up some of my surplus honey. I was a bit enthusiastic, so when I saw 1/4 cup honey I interpreted it as 3/4 cup honey, and I have to say my muffins turned out delicious and very tasty indeed. Honey is the virtue of this recipe, don't add sugar - use up some of your old crystalised honey that doesnt spread right anymore!
