Christmas Cake

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2006
Update: I've made this recipe over 3 Christmas now. I've halved the flour quantity in order to have a more fruity cake. Will keep this one going. Yummy!As my partner is not a fan of the glazed cherries I used dried cherries (pretty expensive, but worth it!)and it tastes lovely.I'm pouring 2tbsp of Brandy on each cake every 2 weeks.I don't think it needs any icing either as it's delicious as it is.Hope it lasts till xmas.Thanks Carol!

Takes a while in the oven, but easy and delicious. I did it as per the recipe but just added paprika and parsley. I also used normal cream instead of sour cream.

Spinach and Potato Frittata

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2008
I didn't have to broil. I cooked the frittta COVERED for around 7 minutes which made sure the top was cooked. The next time I will mix the cheese into the egg mixture in addition to scattering on top.

Classic Tiramisu

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2008
This tasted GREAT,but my cream never really set into a thick creamy texture.Was still a bit liquidly at the bottom.Think it is vital to use full cream and not half cream (which I did) and to chill mixture for an hour or so BEFORE layering with biscuits.

Korean BBQ Beef (Pul-Kogi)

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2008
This was really good and simple to do.I added onions cut up in wedges, 1 grated carrot and the green onions to make it a complete meal.Didn't have rice wine so used white wine instead. Marinated only 1.5 hours and was still very tasty.Served with white rice and Miso soup.Will surely make it again and again.

Eclairs II

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2008
The pastry came out fabulously.But it does make around 15 eclairs. As another reviewed suggested I only made half the quantity of the cream filling and it was just enough for the 15 eclairs.I also made a choc glaze instead of an icing using milk, chocolate, a tablespoon of butter and heaped tablespoon of icing sugar to sweeten lightly. We're waffling them down!Thanks

Cranberry Pistachio Biscotti

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2008
Just the right sweetness and crunch. And so pretty. Increased cranberries and reduced pistachios as other reviewers suggested.Didn't chop up pistachios.Having your hands wet to shape dough is a MUST.Impossible otherwise!The dough flattens out while baking so make sure they are only 2 inches wide and have enough height, or you might end up with stumpy biscotti! Mine got pretty wide while baking, but luckily I make the logs high. The next time I'll try to make make 3 logs out of same quantity.

Tabbouleh I

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2008
Very tasty and as even better the next day. I'd would reduce the olive oil quantity the next time. I didn't de-seed or peel the cucumbers. Just chopped them up. Healthy side dish or salad. Served with Shish Tawook from this site.

Ninety Minute Cinnamon Rolls

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2009
Whoa ,,,, these were better than the clone of a cinnabon recipe ! They were more fluffy and gooey. I baked at 180 c for 19-20 mins on bottom shelf of oven. I made them the night before, let them rise, put in baking pan, covered and popped in the fridge till morning. In the morning it went straight from the fridge to the oven. Excellent ! T

Baked Pork Spring Rolls

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2009
Pretty darn good :) As another reviewer suggested I replaced half the chicken with rice vermicelli and added 1 tbsp soya sauce. Cooked it all briefly on a low fire.I ended up eating leftover filling by itself, which I must say would make an excellent starter or salad to a Asian meal.

Hot Bacon Asparagus Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2009
Was a quick and delicious way to eat asparagus. I left out the salad greens and used 2 pounds of asparagus instead. I poached the eggs instead of boiling them and the gooey/runny york made it yummy with fresh baguette. A keeper :)
