Easy Devonshire Cream

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2012
It sounds rather nice and I shall make it. BUT it is not Devonshire Cream. To have the real thing. Milk with a good cream content is left so that the cream rises to the top and is then scalded. The taste is unique.

Savory Breakfast Muffins

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2012
I followed the recipe exactly except the sugar. I used only 1 tablespoon of sugar and that made it sweet enough for me. Also, I DID add a bit of mustard. I found it delicious. Will make again.

Baked Honey Mustard Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2012
I don't cook in the oven very often, it is for me a very expensive way to cook. Also I have to find someone who will go and buy and carry a gas bottle up two flights. The first time I used the micro wave, but must have left it too long. I just rescued the sauce from completely burning. The next, I cooked it on top of the stove (very low flame). OK, but I found it too sweet and couldn't finish it. It's strange, because before cooking, the mustard is predominant, but not after cooking. I am disappointed, because I like this combination. Don't know whether I will make it again, even using less honey.

Slow-Cooker Barbecue Ribs

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2012
I am cooking for 1 person with a very small appetite, so halved the measures. I had a ketchup which was spicey enough for me. I found the sauce quite delicious. I don't know what a slow cooker is, so I fried them and towards the end finished them off in the sauce.

Zucchini and Blue Cheese Side

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2012
A very nice way to eat courgettes. I didn't have a Blue, and was too lazy to go out and buy, so I used a mix of Emmenthal and Parmesan. But the next time I will make sure I have a bit of Roquefort on hand. It would be even nicer, I am sure.

Coconut Milk Rice Pudding

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2013
I would like to add to my other remarks, if allowed. Some reviewers remarked on the length of time etc. I don't understand. It is as though one is making a Bechamel. Exactly the same process. But one is not dealing with a roux. The result is SO delicious.

Italian Dressing Mix

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2013
It's OK. I used far less salt, practically no sugar and it certainly needed pepper. I would never use canola oil for a salad dressing, but rather peanut, sunflower or olive.

Green Beans with Anchovies

Reviewed: May 23, 2013
I followed the recipe exactly and liked it very much. However I think one must be very careful to blend the anchovies and the lemon, so that neither one is predominant. I, although I love lemon, found it a little too present.

Quick Chicken Piccata

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2013
I liked it very much. I followed the recipe exactly, but I was rather wary of the amount of lemon juice and added a bit less than the amount stated. Delicious. I cooked too much chicken and ate the rest for supper. The sauce was even better second time round. I can't understand anyone having trouble making it. Everything did just what it was supposed to do.

Roasted Apples and Brussels Sprouts

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2012
A most pleasant change for Brussels. I cooked it all on top of the stove. To use the oven for 5 Brussels!!!! The next time I think I might put some lardons in.

Spicy Avocado Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2012
I think that it would be much nicer with a simple vinaigrette rather than pure lemon. In my country we eat avocados as an hors d'oeuvre with a vinaigrette. I will try it like that the next time.

Mustard Butter

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2012
I liked it very much. I had a very refined anchovy paste - I think I could have used a bit more. Same with the Worcestershire sauce. On the other hand, the mustard was a little too evident. I made too much for one person, but I put the leftover into an ice cube container and deep froze it for the next piece of meat.

Marinated Ranch Broiled Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2012
I had lamb cutlets in the frig and couldn't decide how to cook them, so I used this recipe (to the letter). It was delish. I didn't know what a Dry Ranch style dressing was, but made it up according to the info on this site.

Absolutely Fabulous Greek/House Dressing

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2012
it's a vinaigrette with herbs in it. Normally one puts 2/3 vinegar to 1 of oil and not the opposite as in this recipe. I used cider vinegar, because it was all I had. I followed the recipe exactly but found it so sharp that I had to put in a good bit more oil.

Greek Spice Rub

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2012
I have been looking for something like this, instead of buying it in a well known supermarket and not being all that happy with it. Think that altho' I have never tried it, mint might be rather nice.
