Sugar Cookie Icing

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2009
Delicious!! I had to add more milk, but as blueprints go, this could not be any better. I used the food processor to get rid of all the hard bits in the confectioner's sugar, then added the liquids. I separated some parts with green, pink and left some plain white. Left to dry on cool cookies for 20 minutes then froze for 20 minutes and placed into air tight container. The kids had so much fun with this recipe and I used honey instead of corn syrup.

Spinach Cantaloupe Salad with Mint

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2009
OUTSTANDING! Out of all the dishes I prepared for Australia Day, everyone said this was the best - and I didn't even use avocado. Mine weren't quite ripe enough and I only had green bell pepper, and used mint sauce in the dressing. Other than that, I followed the recipe exactly and my kids were fighting over the last pieces of spinach! I have never seen that before. lol. The dressing is the PERFECT compliment to this amazing dish. I plan on making it again tomorrow night as it was that good. Even hubby was nodding with approval and murmuring 'great salad'. I used fresh mint from my potted garden - best salad I have eaten in a while. Thank you for this recipe!!!

Red and Green Christmas Jalapeno Jelly

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2007
The flavour of this is INCREDIBLE! It tastes a million times better than what I expected. I used 1/2 cup of green pepper, 1/2 cup red pepper, 1/4 cup of mild yellow cayennes, 1/4 cup of hot red chilli. So good. I had to use three 50g pkts of dry pectin. Also, I have a lot of beautiful cider vinegar bottles that I need to do something with, and I think I'll make a sweet chilli sauce from this mix because I'll use less pectin. It would taste fabulous as a sweet chilli sauce!!! Cheap to make as well....Thankyou so much...

Perfect Apple Pie

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2010
I am only reviewing the crust of this pie as I had gala apples and didn't want to add too much sugar, so I had to change things around a bit. The crust is the PERFECT one for apple pie. I used 8-9 tablespoons of cold water though, not 4 and did it all in my food processor. I had enough left over from half to make a lattice top and still have half left over for another pie. Thankyou! My search for the perfect crust ends.

Ron's Bread Machine White

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2008
This is really good. I used the 3/4 cup water/ 1/4 cup of milk that another reviewer suggested and was happy with the results. This bread was the easiest to slice.

Chocolate Chip Pancakes

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2007
Delicious. Perfect pancakes. I doubled the recipe and used half the batter for choc chips and the other half for blueberries. I didn't make the sauce and then found I had none in the cupboards, so I wish I had. Next time...

Fruitcake

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2006
I went to make this cake 3 1/2 weeks before Christmas and discovered I only had one egg. I used egg substitute and a little nut oil instead. As such, I don't think I can rate this cake fairly considering a fruitcake has so many ingredients it is vitally important to follow the recipe exactly. That being said, I did make this cake and because I didn't have enough eggs it was slightly crumbly. I should have left the cake to cool in the pan as once it was cool it was alot easier to remove. ***TIP: To line the bottom of a round cake pan with non-stick paper, turn your pan upside down and measure a square of paper so that it hangs over the edges by an inch. Then fold that square in half exactly and then in half again. Now fold it into half again so that it is in a triangle shape. Put the point of the triangle in the center of your upside down pan and then with kitchen scissors cut the excess paper that hangs over the edge in a curve. When you unfold the paper it will be in a circle that fits exactly into the pan.*** I did have excess batter and used another pan so I could taste it. It is very rich and heavy. Just like a fruitcake should be. I have never had nuts in a fruitcake and don't know if I really like them in there. It took THREE AND A HALF HOURS to bake at the stated temperature. It is now in the fridge and covered with alfoil in a cake container sprinkled with a mix of frangelico (hazelnut liquor) and brandy and bourbon every 2 - 3 day. I will update after Xmas.

Barbequed Marinated Flank Steak

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2005
This marinade is very tasty. I whipped it up and placed the steaks in it for only half an hour as it was a last minute enhancer. My hubby said it was ok - but he cleaned his plate! I loved it! YUMMY!

Wacky Cake III

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2009
Wow. Great cake. Just about everyone ate it, including my daughter's friends, my family etc. I did use veggie oil substitute instead of margarine but otherwise kept it the same. You can smell a little of the vinegar ( smells a bit odd) as this comes out of the oven, but once it completely cools there is no strange aroma at all. Smells just like chocolate cake. I used my icing instead of the recipes, because mine is loved by all my family. 2 cups icing sugar, 2 cups real whipped cream and 1/3 cup cocoa whipped with electric beaters, spread on cooled cake. After a night in the fridge, the cake was a dead ringer for the type you buy at the supermarket, slightly dense, moist and chocolaty. Yep, you guessed it. I'm making it again tonight. lol. I also mix it with an electric beater in a separate bowl first so there's no lumps and transfer to a lightly greased and lined pan. Thanks alot.

Apple Strudel Muffins

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2011
These are wonderful!! I followed some of the other reviewers advice. I doubled the recipe, but only did 1 1/2 cups of peeled and shredded red delicious apples with juice, and 1 1/2 cups of chopped grannie smith (didn't chop it too small or too big). I didn't have brown sugar and just used all white for the recipe, including the topping. I added 2 tsp vanilla and about 1 1/2 tsp of chinese five spice. Other than that I kept the recipe the same as if you were doubling it. Thank you.

Sugar Coated Pecans

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2012
I made this for snacks on the weekend for a get-together. However, they were all eaten before anyone came around! Everyone loved them. I've been 'asked' to make them again, but I'm doubling/tripling the recipe to give some away as gift for Christmas. I just use whatever nuts I have, and use chinese 5 spice instead of the cinnamon. I also use 2 egg whites for a single recipe. They are delicious and seriously addictive!! Rahtoys -- I freeze leftover egg yolks in zip lock bags, and then go hunting for recipes that will use them up eg: lime pie, sponge cake etc

Easy Key Lime Pie I

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2006
DELICIOUS!! And, so easy. Took me about ten minutes to prepare. As I took it out the fridge once cooled hubby didn't believe me that I made it. He thought I bought it. LOL. So good with whipped cream. I didn't have enough bottled lime juice but I had fresh lemons and I used just over 1/2 cup of freshly squeezed. I bought the sweet pastry base to make it even easier.

Mushroom Salisbury Steak

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2009
Fan-freakin'-tastic!!! I made the sauce and put it aside (I used approx 600ml of reduced salt real beef stock for the Aussies out there) and all purpose flour. I made the patties, using my food processor for the crumbs and onion and fried them with the lid on (helps to steam the insides). When brown, I took out, drained the fat, added some cubes of butter, some fresh chopped mushrooms and one of those small cans of sliced mushrooms in butter that I'd been trying to use up. After frying until the mushrooms soaked up the juices, I added the sauce liquid and simmered on high for about 5 mins. Turned it right down, added the meat and simmered on both sides for about 10 minutes. My child, who hates mushrooms, totally begged me for more.

Easy Beef Pie

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2006
Very nice. I added bacon to the browning chuck steak cubes and used store bought puff pastry. I used beef stock instead of red wine and frozen veg. Before I added the pastry lid, I covered the meat mixture with a layer of tasty cheddar cheese slices. My hubby loves steak, bacon and cheese pie. Because I added the bacon it was a lot saltier and next time I will use salt-reduced stock.

Honey Wheat Sandwich Rolls

Reviewed: Jul. 1, 2006
Amazing! Incredible! Delicious! I let the bread machine do all the work and just rolled out 8 decent sized rolls from the dough. Added an egg wash and sesame and poppy seeds to the top. No butter on top as these were for Turkey Burgers. My daughter says she loves them, so I can see myself making these for her lunches instead. Thankyou.

Bread Machine Rolls

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2006
These rolls were great. My 6 yr old girl loved them. I found them to be a little too sweet and would most likely cut back the white sugar to 2 tblspns next time I'm making them. Instead of just doing a regular bun, I rolled a piece of dough to form a log about 1 inch in width and 10 inch in length. Then, I simply tied the dough in a basic knot and pushed the ends up through the middle so there were no holes. I let them rise with a teatowel covering (not damp) and then after 1 hr I brushed with a beaten egg and sprinkled them with sesame and poppy seeds.(see photo)Update for Bonnie - instead of using a teatowel, use clingfilm sprayed with oil & make sure it doesn't overrise. My advice is make sure your liquid in the yeast is warm enough to bloom, once you roll them into buns don't put a cover over it.
