Garlic Mashed Red Potatoes

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2010
I didn't think this was spectacular. I guess it's also a much healthier option with less fattening ingredients. I added double the amount of parmesan for more flavour. It was pretty bland unless I added more. That's what makes the difference in this recipe. Boiling the potatoes with garlic barely made any difference but you could still taste it very faintly. I think I would only make this again if I had sauce to go with it.

Spinach and Potato Frittata

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2010
I took everyone's advise and reduced the amount of potatoes used. 4 was more than plentiful. I would recommend using fresh garlic, I didn't and it affected the flavour slightly. I also added chopped bacon that I fried over a pan before adding this in. Also want to say that this bakes very well, I didn't have a skillet and being my first frittata i wanted to make sure that it was going to be cooked so I put it into the oven and covered with foil and it cooked beautifully. I think it's a very versatile recipe that you can add or remove ingredients as you wish.

White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies III

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2010
Just made a batch of cookies and it tastes amazing. 10 minutes will make it slightly crunchy on the sides and soft in the middle. I managed to make it entirely crunchy as well. The texture is very light and melts in your mouth. I think it uses too much butter though. I cut it from 225g to 200g butter instead and it still feels like I could have used less. Used choc chip instead of chunky chocolate. Would have loved to know what this tasted like with almond extract but it tasted just fine with vanilla only.

Chocolate Chip Muffins

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2010
I'm glad I read the reviews before I made this. It definitely requires alteration because for a second there I thought I was making cookies because the batter was quite dry. I used 1 cup of butter milk, 1 cup of choc chips (I would add more next time), Vanilla essence & 1/2 a cup of canola oil. Once cooled down they were sweet enough and moistness was just right. Baked them for around 20 minutes. The sugar at the top was a nice crunchy addition. I would definitely add up to 1.5 cups of choc chips next time because I found it to be quite barren.

Black Bottom Cupcakes I

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2009
I love cream cheese and chocolate. It's a match made in heaven! Everyone loves this and it tastes so nice when it's chilled as well. Only thing I noticed is how the cream cheese filling doesn't seem to be enough. I also once slightly overbaked this and it turned very dry on the sides so remember not to overbake.

White Chip Chocolate Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2009
This is a very easy recipe and tasty as well. They are soft and chewy at around 8-10 minutes of baking. I did try to make them crunchy by baking longer but they turned out more hard then crunchy so I suspect these cookies are meant to be chewy. The only thing I did differently was adding chopped walnuts to it and it was very nice!

Best Carrot Cake Ever

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2007
This was amazing. I always thought carrot cakes were hard to bake even though i never baked any before and prayed and hoped the ones i made would taste good. Well mine turned out perfect (i hardly ever say that about anything i make). i decided to make cup cakes instead of cake so that i could give them away. the texture is just right. the moistness is just right too! grating the carrots took me half an hour. i was so tired i used 1 cup less of carrots recommended. Ommitted the raisins so in place of the raisins i used more crushed pineapples. for example recipe recommended 1 cup raisin i added half a cup of pineapple instead. there have been mixed comments about whether draining / not draining the juices. what i did was mix the carrots with the brown sugar, when i was about to add the carrots to my mixture i added half the water left in the bowl and threw the other half away. as for the crushed pineapple, i did strain it. i could have used a wooden spoon and squeezed even more juice out but i didn't. that for me was the moderate steps i took that i felt worked well to my advantage. definitely try this out in cup cakes and bake about 20 minutes. i used cream cheese frosting 2.

Strawberry Muffins

Reviewed: May 2, 2007
nothing special about this. it was easy to make. i added in more strawberries and added some strawberry conserve. it tastes nice fresh out of the oven. the crust is sweet and slightly crunchy. it didn't leave me wanting more.

Fresh Tomato Salsa

Reviewed: May 2, 2007
when i first saw this i thought to myself, how can this taste nice, it's too simple. i made it anyway since it was easy and quite highly rated. definitely a keeper! i am impressed so was everyone else. it looked plain and simple but it ended up being very flavourful and refreshing. as my guests said it was tangy. i chopped parsley with coriander for this. couldn't find serrano chilis so i use jalapenos instead. i used 1 tbsp which i thought was more than enough. chopped the jalapenos and mixed it in. i then took some of the pickled water used for the jalapenos and put about 1 tbsp in. that made it so nice and tangy! i presume u could do the same by mixing vinegar with some sugar. i think 3 tomatoes is too little for 4 servings. i put in 4 tamatos instead for 3 servings. i didn't really bother with the salt just gave it a shake that's all.

Chicken Enchiladas II

Reviewed: May 2, 2007
This is superb. I made it for the first time and it did take a little longer to prepare and to make the sauce but i am sure i will be faster next time. substitions: I couldn't find canned chillis, i wasn't keen on chopping my own either so i used jalapenos - 2 tbsp. just 2 tbsp made it quite spicy already. i added in fresh sliced mushrooms. i added it in together with the chicken and let it simmer for a while until it starts to soften. i didn't let it soften entirely because i knew i would be placing it in the oven. i added more milk to this because it didn't seem like i had enough sauce for 6 tortillas. i think adding herbs gives it a good twist. i added chopped, basil, parsley and coriander and when i served i dribbled some chopped spring onions. everyone at the table loved this. it came out nice and moist - most importantly full of flavour even though i added about 1 cup of milk to it. definitely a keeper!
