Gramma Bertha's Banana Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2007
Not having ever liked bananas, I loved this cake. Like the other reviewers, I found it moist and delicious. I made no changes to the recipe itself, but added a small sprinkling of cinnamon. I didn't find the sugar too much at all. This is a very good recipe, worth keeping.

Serbian Ground Beef, Veggie, and Potato Bake

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2006
My family and I were disappointed with this recipe. I have to say, from the others reviews I really thought it would be great, and I followed peoples sugestions, etc but it just tasted like a bland shephards pie. We couldn't taste the spices at all which was a shame. I'm giving this 3 stars because it was still a hearty meal, but just not very exciting in my standards. I definitely recommend adding cheese to this if you do make it though... it's the only way my 5-yr-old son would eat it!

All American Apple Pie

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2006
My 5-yr-old son helped me to make this pie on the weekend. We did enjoy it, however it's not the best I've ever tasted. It seemed quite regular to me. I had the same problem as a few of the other reviewers with the topping being a big sloppy mess, even after adding more flour + sugar to try and "crumble" it. In the end I had no choice but to spread the mixture across the top and bake it that way, which was fine but not really what was expected. I increased the cinnamon and also added a small amount of brown sugar to the filling, which was lovely. I do think this is just a nice pie, but not right up there with my favourites, in my taste.

Spicy Fisherman's Pie

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2006
Made this last night and it was delicious. My 5-yr-old son found it too spicy though and ended up eating toast for dinner. I used 3 smoked cod fillets, plus I added about 250g of chopped spinach, which really did help. I left out the parsley as I didn't think it needed it. It was still fairly runny after baking for 45 minutes, but not sloppy. In response to one of the other reviewers whose husband didn't like mash on top... I only semi-mashed the potatoes so it wasn't 'sloppy' and it was a good texture that resulted. I think you could add a lot of great things to this recipe and really adapt it to suit your own tastes. My husband suggested kumara...!? Thanks for this beauty!

Chewy Coconut Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2006
I was quite disappointed in these. I made a huge batch of them, but found they just tasted "eggy" and bland, despite all of the coconut! My 5-yr-old son refused to eat more than half of one, and I have to say I forced myself to eat more - just so they weren't wasted! They also weren't chewy at all, but stiff like a regular biscuit. I followed the recipe and took note of peoples reviews, but I won't be making these again. They just weren't what I was expecting.

French Beef Stew

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2006
I thought this was just delicious, and my husband enjoyed it aswell and had two helpings. However, I made a few changes. I also used 6 small potatoes, a few bay leaves, a dash of Worcestershire sauce, a sliced brown onion, a little sugar and I mixed some herb and garlic seasoning into the flour mix to coat the beef. I only had 500g of beef, but it was still enough. After browning the beef in the pan I cooked it all in the slowcooker on high for 5 hours and low for 1 hour, adding the mustard and a couple of tablespoons of Traditional Gravox gravy mix to the stew in the last hour, which was very nice. I will definitely be making this again. Thank you!

American Lasagna

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2006
I made this for the first time and although it was very tasty, I think it could definitely have been a bit 'saucier' even though I did add a bit of water during simmering. However, my husband and his friend enjoyed it so at the end of the day that's what counts!

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2006
these were just delicious! i followed the recipe without making any major changes, but added 1 cup instead of 3/4cup of mashed butternut pumpkin (as in australia we don't have canned pumpkin!) and just a tad more chocolate bits than the recipe called for (hehehe!), and they came out very tasty and moist. however, there is only a very subtle pumpkin taste, but i'm not sure if it's due to the kind of pumpkin i used or not. either way i would definitely make these again. i recommend this recipe!

BBQ Dry Rub

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2006
There is a heck of a lot of this rub to store after use, and I didn't enjoy it that much -- neither did my husband. But, hey, it's good to try new things! I just found it had an overly peppery taste, where my husband thought it was overly sweet...? It also made a lot of juice come out of the meat once it was rubbed in and sat in the fridge for a few minutes... is that normal?

Broccoli Quiche with Mashed Potato Crust

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2006
I made this dish as a simple accompaniment to go with our meal of crumbed fish and vegies, and it went down quite well, however my husband and son both thought it could do to be a LOT more cheesier! I did add cauliflower aswell as the broccoli, which was very nice as I had leftovers of both. I would make this again, but next time add a lot more cheese, or use a cheese sauce instead.

Apricot Balls

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2005
Apart from taking quite a few hours to get firm in the fridge, they are very sweet and tasty, although the mixture is very gooey when "shaping" into balls and I found that I used quite a bit more shredded (or flaked) coconut to roll them in. Also, just in case there's any confusion (as I found it confusing with conversions!) the 395ml can of condensed milk, halved, is more than enough!
