Amazingly Good Eggnog

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2010
Used milk instead of cream to make it a bit less heavy and whiskey because I didn't have any rum. Tastes great! Will absolutely make this again.

Cookie Press Shortbread

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2010
I found the taste of this recipe very good: very buttery and not overly sweet. I did add a pinch of salt as I find in general that it helps bring out the flavor in pastry. The texture is very smooth with a delicate crispiness. As other reviewers have noted it does give a rather fragile cookie. Worth it though n my opinion. For me this recipe is not very well suited for the cookie press: much too sticky even after putting the dough in the fridge for about 15 minutes. In the second batch I added 50 g more flour but the dough was still too sticky for the press. Perfect for rolling balls by hand and flatting them a bit on the cookie sheet. Will definitely make this recipe again because of the texture and taste, just not with the press. Therefor on 4 out of 5 stars.

Blender Chocolate Mousse II

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2012
I would call this a chocolate paste rather then a mousse, but it is very tasty nonetheless. I made it with a stickblender and used crème de menthe instead of brandy and dark chocolate instead of semisweet. The result was a very lovely "after eight" dessert. First I blended the sugar with the crème de menthe and the eggs. After that I blended the chocolate in and the hot milk last. Gave it a few more pulses before pouring into the bowls. The dessert set up for me in about 1 to 2 hours in the fridge. I think this recipe would also make a marvelous cake filling and icing. Will try that with a chocolate cake and cointreau instead of brandy.

Cocoa Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2013
I would give is recipe 5 stars for easy baking. The flavour however was somewhat lacking. Next time I will make this recipe with double the amount of cocoa and some instant coffee crystals or cinnamon. Either way, a nice and tasty cookie!

Fabulous Homemade Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2013
This is the only bread recipe that comes out light and fluffy every time. I usually reverse the amounts of whole wheat and bread flour for a darker and more fiber rich bread. Also, I usually make rolls instead of loaves, count on 2 servings per roll when scaling down the recipe. I bake the rolls at the given temperature for 14 minutes. The formed rolls freeze very well: just freeze in a freezer bag right after forming them. To bake, get them out of the freezer the night before and let them thaw in the fridge. When completely thawed, let them rise and bake as usual.
