Peach Cake II

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2014
This recipe is incredibly awesome!!!! I don't know why there would be any negative reviews here. First time I made it, it was a HIT! Followed the recipe entirely and added the glaze like it was suggested and it went in a matter of minutes! I've made 3 in one week because our peach tree is overloaded and DH's work absolutely loves it! Definitely a keeper! Thank goodness cause we are loaded down with fresh peaches.

Fresh Peach Dessert

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2012
OMG! My great aunt made this dessert when I was a kid some 20 years ago (from Illinois)! I've been searching for the recipe and this is pretty dang close! My whole family loves it, kiddos too. Since I live in New Zealand graham crackers aren't easy to come by so I just used a plain cookie which was ok but not recommended. My great aunt used vanilla wafers which is what I would definitely recommend! I too melted my marshmallows in the microwave and would also suggest you do that first so they can cool. In my opinion there is no substitute for fresh cream. My husband isn't a huge fan of fresh cream but mixed with the marshmallow he loved it. I've never tried with other fruits but man, with peaches it's divine! Simply yummy and incredibly easy! Will keep this forever now I found it again!!! Thanks.

Strawnana Smoothie Bread

Reviewed: May 5, 2011
I did exactly as it stated and it's been in the oven for 2 hours and it's not even cooked! What a waste of ingredients that I can barely afford. Needed this for my daughter's class tomorrow. I would recommend this at all unless you can live with disappointment.

Banana Prune Muffins

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2011
Wow, how impressive is this recipe! I bought a large pack of prunes only to find my kids no longer liked them. This worked perfect! The only thing I did different was added 2 tsp cinnamon and 3/4 cup chocolate chips but everything else was the same. And I finely chopped the prunes (to stop them sticking in teeth like one reviewer said happened) like I would herbs. This is a deceptive recipe cause you see prune and think 'uh, no' but you CANNOT taste the prunes and have passed the kid and hubby test! FABULOUS! I also doubled the recipe and got 22 muffins. Totally using again and dare anyone to give it a go ;)

Aunt Mary's Vanilla Frosting

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2008
I enjoy this recipe. Those that gave it fewer stars must be wanting something sweeter. I found this to be more like the fluffly light icing you get on a Wal-Mart cake. Although I do think it requires more sugar than the recipe states. I don't use shortening either instead all butter and that could be the reason for needing extra sugar. OH and probably extra vanilla wouldn't hurt either ;) It takes a while to take form, it's not instant so just keep mixing! It's fluffy, light and yummy ;)

Fiesta Fry Pan Dinner

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2008
I really enjoyed this recipe, quick and simple! Love that you can add extras without ruining any flavor! I didn't use taco seasoning instead opted for my own which included flour, beef stock, chili, cumin, paprika, garlic, sugar and salt. I used stir-fry beef instead of hamburger and a can of Mexican flavored chopped tomatoes too. I also used regular rice and you just cook it for 15-20 minutes instead of the 5 for the instant. I added 200g of frozen corn, a tad more than stated. Once it was finished I topped with the cheese and some black olives. I can see how so many other things would be yummy in it too like kidney beans, black beans, crushed tortillas, avocado, etc. We also topped with sour cream! Kids loved it! I could do more spice but the kiddos aren't that inclined at their age lol. Totally making again ;)

Apple-Raisin French Toast Casserole

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2008
Yummo!!! I'm not sure about some of the other reviews but I had no problems with this recipe. I tried it exactly the way it was written to *see* for myself how it turned out. The only thing I omitted was vanilla because I had none and I added a bit of nutmeg and probably more cinnamon then it call for lol. Other than that, that was it! It was sooooooooooo yummy!!!! OMG, I couldn't get over the taste! Totally not too sweet which I kinda worried about with the brown sugar and apples. I even splashed it with maple syrup afterwards but didn't need it. I did cook this at 200C for 40 minutes uncovered. I don't like my French Toast dried out, not how it should be, so it was perfect; moist and spongy ;) I also let it stand the extra 5 minutes, could have stood longer only cause it holds the heat. The other thing is FYI NZers: I only used 24 slices of French bread cut between 1-1.25 inches in thickness. I think our French sticks must be denser cause I weighed out a pound but was too much. Totally recommend giving this one a go ;)

Burrito Pie

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2008
I think it was pretty yummy. Probably would be better if I made the exact recipe but I tried fixing it for my Weight Watchers points. So I ended up using a 300g chicken breast, a can of kidney beans mashed and 4 1/2 tortillas. I had to cut back on a bit of the cheese as well. Topped with sour cream and avocado and loved it! I cooked my chicken and then shredded it and seasoned it with Mexican seasoning. My kids loved it as well! OH and I added double the amount of olives cause my girls love 'em ;)

Pico de Gallo Chicken Quesadillas

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2008
Just what I needed for a Mexican fix! I seasoned the chicken with chili seasoning, cumin and cayenne before cooking it. I also omitted the jalapeno simply because my kids wouldn't eat it. I made the pico but I also chopped up the green pepper small and added it. I didn't use the second onion either. I also cooked all of the pico simply because I don't like raw onion. These were soooooooo yummy! Tortilla in pan, cheese, pico and chicken. I think the key to flipping them is not overfilling. We added avocado and sour cream after and OMG, to die for! My youngest devoured her 3 triangles without any hesitation and we are always waiting for her to eat! Definitely going to make again! I also added extra chili sauce to mine cause I like a bit more bite ;)

Tortilla Pie

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2008
What an easy and simple recipe! I have two girls (6 & 3) who loooooooove tacos and enchiladas and my oldest had two helpings of this! So this is a keeper. I definitely think it needs more pep and more garlic. I also added kidney beans which were nice and I think mashing them in with the meat would be nice as well. We also used cottage cheese instead of ricotta. Was a decent substitute. I would definitely add more cheese but being on WWs this suited perfectly point wise. Served on a bed of lettuce with sour cream and black olives. Yummy :)

Easy Guacamole

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2006
This has become a house favorite! Dh isn't keen on avocados but I could eat them by the truck load! And it's not *really* guacamole unless it has tomato in it!!! We altered it a bit but it is just devine! We added onion flakes instead of an onion; added fresh minced garlic that you can buy in jars and added a fair more than that equal to a clove; used 2 whole peeled canned tomatoes and chopped them; used juice from half a lemon (instead of lime); pepped up with some cayene pepper and a bit of chile. YUMMY!!!!

Blueberry Pound Cake

Reviewed: May 24, 2006
Yum, yum, YUMMY! My daughter wanted to make a blueberry cake for her cooking day. I haven't been successful in this department. This one was awesome! Very easy to make and very tasty! We enjoyed it with custard for our evening dessert. I used fresh frozen blueberries straight from the freezer, no thawing necessary. We also baked it in a 9x12 inch pan as I don't have a ring pan. I can't recall how long it baked on that temp but I think it was around 40-50 minutes. Awesome cake and will be making it again!

Rocky Road Ice Cream

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2006
Brilliant! For an American who is missing Rocky Road ice cream in a country that doesn't do Rocky Road, I LOVED IT! It is soooooooo rich and it was perfect. WONDERFUL chocolate flavor. I was hugely impressed! Not cheap for us to make however but well worth it. We don't have light cream in this country so I used milk and butter instead. I may try subsituting with evoporated milk in place of the heavy cream next time too. But definitely a keeper and it made my first time enjoyable and I look forward to making it again. Now should I share with my family????

Snickerdoodles I

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2005
WOOHOO! I finally found it! It's taken nearly 10 years to find the perfect Snickerdoodle recipe, and I won't be looking any further. The pic doesn't do these cookies justice either. I am sooooooo pleased at how they turned out and it's the same as I remember them when I was first hooked. I reckon the secret ingredient must be the cream of tartar. I've tried many without that and they don't even compare. I also think the trick is to not let them cook too long either. It's hard with these because too brown and they aren't how they should be. LOVE IT!

Stephen's Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2005
This was a fabulous recipe! I love chocolate and nuts so what a great one to try! My only suggestion would be to add more nuts lol! And maybe a tad more semi-sweet morsels. Even my DH loved them and he isn't a huge nut eater! Definitely a keeper!
