Butter Frosting

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2008
I halved the sugar in this recipe and all my family still said it was way too sweet. It was kind of grainy although I beat it very well.

Aussie Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2008
I'm inclined to give this one 3 1/2 stars, but dh did enjoy it. Didn't taste that spectacular, the flavours didn't really amalgamate, or meld, but tasted like chicken, mustard sauce, bacon, cheese etc, it didn't make the flavours more than they were but was generally good because it did have bacon and cheese.

Juicy Roasted Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2008
I used butter instead of margarine as that's all I had and I don't buy margarine normally. I followed the direction except I had no onion powder and used a little onion in the cavity. The chicken breasts were not juicy at all and next time (there will be a NEXT time!) I will cook this breast side down. I lined my pan with foil and OMG the gravy/sauce was incredible. One of the top ten gravies I have ever tasted, and that's saying alot because my father is a gravy magician. I know there was a lot of chicken fat in it, but this thin light sauce drizzled over roasted vegetables was outstanding! I didn't thicken it or add anything else to it at all, it was salty enough. Overall, fantastic recipe, use as much marg/butter as you want and my trick with the salt is to not just rub it on, but massage it very well into the skin, the better you do this, the better the skin. Dry breasts, A+ sauce.

New York Cheesecake III

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2008
I only used the base of this recipe as I was making an unbaked cheesecake. Let me tell you, the base in great! I will be using it in slice recipes because it would be perfect in them. I added a bit more butter and did the whole thing in my food processor and took out the dough just when the dough started to come together in a big ball. I softened a block of frozen butter in the microwave, until still cool, but soft. I also baked this crust for 20 mins, mainly because when I checked at 15 mins, the middle still had slightly wet parts. Fantastic crust!

Emily's Famous Hash Browns

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2008
Dh and dd rated these at 4 1/2 *. I used my food processor to shred the washed potato, skin and all and also shredded about 1/2 small onion. I fried up a regular small pack of bacon beforehand and crumbled this into the mix (not the fat). I added 1 tspn minced garlic, not alot of salt (because the bacon was salty - make sure you taste the bacon to know), pepper and about 1 cup of shredded cheddar cheese. As soon as dh came home from work, he was into them as I started frying them up straight away, using the 1 cup of vegetable oil, although this doesn't have a high smoking point, I used my non stick electric frypan set between 9 and 10. Took them out of the fat when both sides were crispy, dark golden brown. I served them with sweet chilli dipping sauce and salad. Dh said they were pretty good, and considering he mowed through nearly the whole lot of them, I would say this recipe is a success. Oh yeah - I dried the potato with paper towel, three layers of towel on a flat plate, potato, then three more layers of towel, squeeze and press out juice until paper is soaked, then remove top layer and replace with dry paper, flip and do the same to the other side. Keep going, by flipping until the dry layer is on the bottom and replace the top layer until you soak up the juice.

Healthy Turkey Loaf

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2008
I used chicken mince, (all I had) instead of turkey and added some extra ingredients and it was incredible. I only had about 500grams of chicken mince, so I needed to bulk it up and I wanted to add veges into the meatloaf. I used about 1/2 cup of diced frozen veg, 1/4 cup of frozen peas, 1/4 diced bell pepper, minced garlic, a whole egg, lots more breadcrumbs and some splashes of light soy and worcestershire sauce. I spread a tomato, brown sugar mix on top and it was amazing served with a warm beetroot salad and baguette. Kids ate it all and dh was so quiet over the table...too busy eating.lol.

Cheeseburger Meatloaf

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2008
I'm giving this recipe 4 1/2 stars because of how easy and delicious it was. It was a very good meatloaf and I just threw it together, following all the ingredients including fresh breadcrumbs and didn't roll the meat, but just put in a layer of meat, then cheese, repeat until a meat layer is on top. I spread some tomato and worcestershire mixed over the top and it was incredibly yummy. Reminds me of a veal and cheese I used to eat as a kid. Well worth keeping, thankyou.

Honey Baked Chicken II

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2008
Unbelievably good!!! Hubby exclaimed after the first bite, "It's nice!" lol. He then rated it 4 1/2 stars, which is kind of a shock because this was so easy. Dd rated it 8 stars, and I loved it. The taste after the chicken comes out of the oven is spectacular. I halved the honey because I'm used to dh saying he doesn't like very sweet foods when they're normally savoury, but other than that, no changes. I used boned chicken thighs, marinated for 1 hour, covered with foil for 40 mins, and basted every 15 mins after. I cooked until the tips of the chicken turned golden brown. I served this with vegetable chop suey. I lined the bottom of my tray with foil so all the drippings were easy to clean up. Thankyou!! UPDATE: I make this all the time now, using 1/4 cup of honey, 1/4 cup mustard and 1/4 cup of butter (I double the butter if I have extra chicken to 1/2 cup), it's so simple and cheap as I buy the huge tubs of honey and huge bottles of mustard which last me like 6 months and buy blocks of butter and put them in the freezer. I serve this with a cruchy asian salad or vegies. My dd adores it.

French Toast Stars

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2008
I did modify this recipe a lot, but I still believe it is worthy of the five stars. I craved them all day long after breakfast! Okay, my dh doesn't like sweet things usually with his eggs or french toast. He prefers the savoury flavour. I decided to make these, modifying for his taste and I used 5 kid's size eggs (500g), half a cup of thickened cream, 1/4 cup organic, unhomogenized milk, 1 tblspn of honey, 1/8 tsp cinnamon, the grated zest of one small orange, about 1/4 tsp (to get a tblspn is heaps!) and a small squeeze of the juice into egg/cream mix. I more or less, only added small amounts of the honey and spices, so he would like it. He told me later that it was alright, but he likes just plain egg and milk better. I LOVED IT!!!! Seriously, I would not like it any sweeter than what I had it, and my dd didn't like it either, but ds and I loved it.

Steak Pie

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2008
This was great. I added a frozen puff pastry layer to the bottom and used for the gravy one of those mixes you use such as, "Beef & Onions or Beef and Red wine etc". I added diced frozen veg and some layers of cheese under the pastry lid. Thanks.

Deep Dish Brownies

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2008
These were great! I followed Mommy from Seattle's advice and they were sooo chewy, rich and fudgey. I used 2 large eggs, no baking powder, added 1/2 cup chocolate chips and 1/4 cup of walnuts just crumbled up by hand. I frosted them with chocolate frosting from this site. They are so rich with this added, but droooooooolllllll..mmmmm.....lol

Bacon Roll-Ups

Reviewed: Aug. 14, 2008
These were alright. Nothing fancy and the bacon was the best part. I did pre cook the bacon a little and used 2 wholemeal pitas from the freezer and 1 pkt bacon. I think these would be better to bake in the oven and also the cream cheese needs SOMETHING in the middle of it - like a swirl of sweet chilli sauce to cut throught that thick, plain flavour, plus pepper (no salt because of the bacon). I used sweet chilli to dip them in. Dh said they were kind of strange, but most of the family ate them, except for bubs and 3 yr old. If you soak your bacon in water to defrost, you'll need to add salt as soaking it leaches out the salt. Wouldn't make again, simply because they tasted a bit strange --- they were actually a lot better when they weren't broiled, but with just the half cooked bacon wrapped around them.

Beth's Spicy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2008
Dangerous, dangerous cookies to have in your house! These are OMG DELICIOUS!!! So, if you eat all 36 don't say you weren't warned. I used all butter and a mix of raisins and dried cranberries because that's all I had. I didn't have cloves so I substituted the cinnamon and cloves in the recipe for 1 and 1/2 tsp of Chinese Five Spice which contains fennel, anise, ginger, licorice root, cinnamon and cloves. The smell is devine. The smell of the cookies in the oven is heaven and each one I eat, I cannot believe how good these taste. I still give these 5 stars even though I subbed in some more spices and used all butter. I will post some photos of these diet busters!

Easy Pavlova

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2008
This is amazing! Luscious, crispy meringue. I have made pavlova many times and this one has been the best so far. **TIP** - Spread the tin or non-stick paper with a basting brush dipped in softened butter and make your circle out of that, painting around the edges of your circle too, remembering that pavlova can spread. I use buttered, non-stick paper. IT WILL NOT STICK IF YOU GREASE IT WITH BUTTER. I cooled it in the oven as I had to leave the house (switched it off) and it was amazing when I returned. This does have that marshmallowy texture another reviewer pointed out and I've found the best sugar to use is caster sugar. I freeze egg whites in zip lock bags after I use the yolks for something. I buy long life cream and have a tin of passionfruit pulp, always ready to make pavlova whenever I wish.

Cola Pot Roast II

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2008
This is one of those recipes where you have your camera ready to take a photo, but the smell and taste of the food get to you so bad, you literally, CANNOT wipe your fingers to take a snap. Nope. You must eat. In a frenzy. LOL. My dh only rated this 3 1/2 stars because he said that it tasted like ordinary meat - meaning he expected some kind of weird flavour from the coke??? Anyway, this is fab. Tastes like beef from your local roast take away who serves the BEST roast beef sandwiches with gorgeous gravy. Tastes like it was professionally prepared. I used cream of celery like another reviewer suggested. Seriously, quality beef.

My children had these for breakfast this morning. The eldest said they were 4 stars. I had to cook with the lid on the pan to help make the middles not so mushy. Thanks.
