Bacon Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2006
This is great. I used green onion and it was super easy, kids devoured it and all said 5*. I will definitely make again because it doesn't need pastry.

Texas Christmas Pickles

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2006
I wanted to try this for Christmas and bought a 680g jar of pickled dill cucumbers at the store. I just sliced them last night and added the tabasco and garlic and sugar. I have to say, it has only been one day and I have tasted them and they are fantastic. Crunchy. Tingly spicy and sweet. Addictive. I will buy a few more jars as I can't resist. I don't think this jar will last a week. Thankyou for the new Christmas recipe to add to my other pickle recipes. It's a KEEPER!

Fudge Chunk Brownies

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2006
These turned out alright for me. The only problem was the oven time. It needed a lot longer to cook.

Broiled Tilapia Parmesan

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2006
I'm sorry, but I'm giving this 3*s because the parmesan cheese was too pungent for the delicate fish. My kids don't really like seafood but I can get them to eat it if I devise a nice recipe ( which I have with both crab and prawn) and both of them wouldn't eat past the second mouthfull. It is even too strong for my adult palate. The two flavours didn't merge, but conflicted.

Marinated Grilled Shrimp

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2006
These were very nice. I was expecting outstanding flavour for five stars though and this just didn't make it. Next time I would add sweet chilli sauce, more tomato and garlic. Fresh basil is a must! UPDATE: I have now modified this recipe to suit our family's taste and I have to say that it is worthy of 5* now. Instead of tomato sauce, I used a whole can of diced tomatoes, doubled the garlic, more basil, 1/4 cup sweet chilli sauce, 1 tblsn of red wine vinegar, 1/4 cup oil and pulsed the lot in my food processor. Verrryyy nice.

Chicken Alfredo

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2006
At first I thought that this was going to be a flop because the butter and cream cheese just curdled and looked terrible. I stirred it with a wooden spoon and didn't know why it wasn't working. the recipe says to mix it over low heat until smooth. I was about to throw it away but I didn't have anything else to feed my kids and stuck with it, hoping to make something of it. I upped the heat to medium and used a fork to stir it. after five mins of this it finally starting looking like alfredo sauce and after that it was easy. 4*

Old Fashioned Onion Rings

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2006
Delicious! Crispy on the outside and tender inside. I used brown onions. I floured them with an extra seasoning of garlic powder, paprika, battered them and then placed them in a shallow container with lots of crumbs. To save time I just placed the lid on the container and shook vigorously. It coated them in crumbs very well, alot better than using your fingers as all the places the breadcrumbs fall off because of your fingers weren't a problem. I mean I just don't have the time to coat one by one and this method worked great. I put them in the fridge ready for dinner and still have lots left uncooked which I will fry up tomorrow night.

Raspberry and Almond Shortbread Thumbprints

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2006
This is the first time that my thumbprint biscuits have been up to standard. Tasty, light and totally yummy. I used seedless blackberry jam. It only made 12 cookies for me. My kids loved them and they were very easy to make. Make sure your butter is softened before you use it. I had to add about 1 tbsp of milk to make dough hold together instead of crumbs.

Beef and Bean Chimichangas

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2006
I wanted to give these 4*, Hubby said 4 1/2*. Very tasty meat. A bit messy but very tasty. Definitey above average. Hubby took left over meat to work and put it through his salad with lots of grated cheese. I bought an enchilada kit and just used the tortillas and enchilada sauce that came with it. It was cheaper that way. I also didn't have any corn, but used celery instead and more bell pepper. UPDATE: I have mastered this because I wanted to try it again because of the recipe's ease and I have to say that it is 5* worthy now and have changed my rating. The enchilada sauce in the meat makes it so good, then using a baking tray that isn't lined, and spraying the chimis with a light coating of oil before putting in the oven works wonders. I also use a store bought salsa which makes them soooooo goooood.

Summer Chicken Burgers

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2006
These were yummy. I also processed the avo and mayo toether until smooth. Unfortunately when it came time to cook it, my computer wouldn't log on to the net so I couldn't really remember all the recipe. I did season the chicken breasts with McCormick's garlic season salt and layerd my bread roll as: avo and mayo spread, vintage cheese, slices of tomato, salt and pepper, chicken and a swirl of mayo and more avo and mayo spread on the other side of the roll. So, I guess I forgot the onion. I'll have to try it that way next time. Hubby loved these! In fact, I will be making these quite often. They are fabulous.

Mrs. Sigg's Snickerdoodles

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2006
I followed the recipe except for the fact that I used all butter instead of shortening. I creamed the butter and sugar by machine as a busy mum I could not be bothered to do it by hand. I folded the flour in. The dough tasted fine uncooked and I just pinched off pieces and rolled with fingertips into balls, put them in a plastic bag with cinnamon/sugar mix and shook it around. My oven cooked these at 11 mins, because at 8 the centers were still wet. The reason this has four stars is because now that the cookies are cool, there is an overwhelming eggy taste to the cookies. You know when you can really taste egg? I don't know why this is so because 2 eggs are not really an excess amount of egg. Next time, I would use 1 egg and sub with 1 teaspoon of egg substitute powder. I lifted the cookie sheets straight out of the tray to cool instead of trying to lift them with a spatula. I will make these again and play with the recipe, maybe add some orange peel or something and less real egg.

A Plus Fair Corn Dogs

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2006
These were yummy. I didn't have any cornmeal simply because I don't think they sell it in Australia because I can't seem to find it anywhere! I just used plain flour in its place and added a teaspoon of chicken bouillon, sprinkle of seasoning salt instead of normal salt. I used a tall glass to dip the dogs. Rolling them in flour before dipping made the batter stick well. I took out the basket in my deep fryer and just used tongs to roll the dogs around. It's better if the oil can get very hot as to bubble around the dog. My two kids loved these and ate them in record time!

Fresh Broccoli Salad

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2006
This was very yummy. I followed the recipe to a "T" and next time intend to make the following variations to our taste. Double the bacon, use 1/4 of the raisins stated, and add some nice cos lettuce leaves with a bit of salt and pepper and some grated parmesan cheese. It was very nice as is and the kids ate raw broccoli for the first time!! With the substitutions I will be giving it to hubby for work lunches during Summer.

To Die For Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2006
These were delicious. I didn't have fresh blueberries, only frozen strawberries and while it did work out, these muffins really need the fresh fruit. I would even use chopped up apple next time and it would be great. I scaled the recipe to 12 and used only half the oil which worked and only 3/4 cup of sugar instead of a full cup. I scaled the topping crumb mix down to 1/4 cup of half white/ brown sugar as I didn't want these to be too sweet. Even with all these modifications, this is a five star recipe because it is a fantastic start, everyone loved them, not one is left a day later and they were very easy to prepare. UPDATE - Made these for my dd's fete bake stall and they were delicious with fresh blueberries. Cut the streusel topping in half.

Angie's Dad's Best Cabbage Coleslaw

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2006
This is delish. I used slightly more vinegar heated in the microwave for more of a tangy flavor. Everyone ate it all.

American Lasagna

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2006
I liked the way this lasagna set up. I made a large dish of it and it fed everyone. Very rich with all that tomato. I think I'll keep searching for a classic.
