Black Bottom Cupcakes II

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2010
These cupcakes were really easy to make and taste delicious; really moist and fudgy, especially after a couple of days.

Cranberry Pear Compote

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2010
This was easy to make and great tasting. I use it with plain yoghurt, but I can easily eat it as is because it was that nice.

Ice Cream Muffins

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2010
I didn't like these at all. It came out tasting more like a combination of scone and bread than a muffin. The batter was also very thick. The recipe said to soften the ice cream, which I did, but wondered whether it should have been completely melted. And, mine didn't look anything like the picture. I was very disappointed.

Absolutely Best Brownies

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2010
Nice brownies, moist and chewy, but not spectacular. I put snickers in my brownie instead of walnuts. Also very easy to make.

Chewy Brownie Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2010
Definitely a keeper. Lovely moist chewy cookies that were easy to make and taste sweet, chocalatey and delicious. I made more than the 18 cookies stated on the recipe and was worried they will become dry as other reviewers have found, but my left over cookies kept well though they are only two days old. Thank you so much for the great recipe! P.S. Used butter instead of shortening, dried cranberries instead of nuts (which tasted great) and a mixture of dark and white chocolate.

Donut Muffins

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2011
This is a keeper. Definitely easy to make and tastes great, just like donuts. However, I didn't dip the entire muffin into the melted butter, instead, I brushed the top with melted butter and dipped in the sugar cinnamon mix.

Red Velvet Cupcakes

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2011
Wonderful cupcake. So light and moist, probably because I used buttermilk instead of sour cream. Needed to use up left over frozen buttermilk. Hubby said it was the best thing I've made. I even mixed some white choc bits in, but I think it tasted much better without it.

Buttermilk Pie III

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2011
Great tasting pie. But, I put too much flour in (9 tbs) because of what other reviewers had said, and it was a bit fluffy towards the top. Being Australian, and not having tried any when we traveled through the South, I don't know what Buttermilk Pie is supposed to taste like or what its texture is supposed to look like. So, I can't say whether this is supposed to be a true buttermilk pie. Regardless, I loved it and will try again, but this time using 3 tbs and using a deeper dish (as I had way too much custard).

Pie Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2011
Loved the cake. Halved the recipe, as I didn't need that much cake, but didn't halve the pie filling, so it was more pie filling than cake. Still delicious and moist though. Used apple pie filling, which really worked with the cinnamon.

Mom's Mexican Cornbread

Reviewed: May 28, 2011
Easy to make, but tastes fairly ordinary, even with the extra spicy jalapenos I used and corn kernels.

Pecan Pie VII

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2011
This is a delicious pie. I couldn't stop at one slice. The filling is rich and sweet and tasted a bit like butterscotch. I actually used demerara sugar because I ran out of brown sugar and I wondered if that altered the taste of filling. Like other reviewers found, it was a lot of filling and I ended up making a little pie as well. I found the filling wasn't really set. Never ate or made pecan pie, so not sure if that's normal. Set or not, it is a delicious pie and I will definitely make it again. Thank you for sharing the recipe.

Boiled Bagels

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2011
Nice bagels, but not the dense types that I like. These bagels were chewier. Another problem was that there was too much salt in it. Having said all that, this was a really good bagel recipe for newbies to bagel making, like myself. It was so easy to make and tasted so nice (even if not dense) that I made two batches in one day. But, as other reviewers have commented, they are a smallish-sized 12 bagels. Bagels I've bought from stores were double the size of my bagels.

Black Magic Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 3, 2011
Absolutely amazingly moist, fudgy and chocolatey cake. Very easy to make as well; could be a one-bowl cake, but chose to use two bowls to mix the liquids. After reading previous reviews on the cake crumbling, I cooked the cake for the whole 40 minutes and left it in the fridge to set before icing it. I also halved the recipe, but regret it now as it came out quite small. My only criticism of the cake was that it shrank when cooling down. Other than that, one of the best chocolate cakes I have ever made. Thank you for sharing the recipe.

Apple Cranberry Streusel Custard Pie

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2011
The mixture was easy to make (I made my own pastry) and after previous reviews, I used a deep dish flan tin. So, the batter fitted exactly and there was no overflow during the cooking. I thought it tasted okay the first day, but really nice the next day. I didn't plan on making it again in future, but my household loved it and requested that I make it again.

Swedish Toscas (Swedish Almond Tarts)

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2011
Really delicious and easy to make. Like another reviewer, I ran out of the fillings and had to make more. Still, I will definitely make again.

Ciabatta Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2011
I love making bread, but didn't enjoy making this ciabatta. The dough was very runny and I did resist the temptation to add more flour after the first proof. In the second proof, the dough started to spread, like the Blob, and did not rise. Halfway through the second proof, I ended up putting it into a loaf tin. Tasted okay, but not the ciabatta that I am like. I think I will just go to my favourite bakery for ciabatta next time.

French Baguettes

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2011
I gave it a four star because it tasted really nice and I found it easy to knead as well. However, I won't be making this again. I was disappointed with its size; not as big as I had expected. I also thought the crust was a bit too soft. I like my baguette fairly crusty and omitted the yolk as I was aware that water makes a crustier bread. But, that didn't even help out.

Golden Egg Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2011
Beautiful bread, soft, moist and tasty. Easy to make by hand. Had instant dry yeast, so just mixed the yeast in with the dry ingredients, then add wet ingredients. Mix with wooden spoon and turn out on to a floured table, and knead. Will definitely make again. Thanks for sharing this recipe.
