Whole-Wheat Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2006
I didn't have any margarine, so I used butter instead. I found the dough to be too soft ( I assume this is the fault of the butter), so I ended up pressing it into a 9x9" pan and baking it at 170 degrees Celsius (350F) for 35 minutes. My Husband quite enjoyed the resulting Chocolate-Chip Squares. Good balance of taste(s) and texture. I will make these again.

Best Buckwheat Pancakes

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2006
These pancakes were surprisingly light and tasty. My pancake-hating husband went back for seconds! Was pressed for time, so I only let the batter sit for 30 minutes before making (will leave for longer next time). Easy to make and delicious. Will definitely make again.

Anise Cookies (Springerle)

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2006
These truly improve over time. They had a very unique texture that I found surprisingly addictive. I am not normally a fan of anise, but these cookies were really good. I don't have a springerle rolling pin, so I just used a cookie cutter to make circles. Instead of the oil, I substituted ground star anise. (Will try the oil next time.)

Anise Drops

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2006
These had an intriguing texture and taste. Unfortunately, after about 3 days their texture started to get a little strange. Very good if they are eaten fresh. I used a large egg with no ill effects, and substituted about 1/2tsp ground star anise.

Dog Treats I

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2006
I made these for my Aunt's dog, substituting peanut butter for the boullion and the cheese. Unfortunately, my aunt's dog does not like peanut butter(?!),so she wouldn't touch these. My dogs, on the other hand, went nuts over them.Very easy to make, disappeared very quickly.

Coconut Lentil Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2006
3.5 stars. Very easy to make, actually tastes better after a few days when the flavours have had the opportunity to settle. I used coconut milk instead of the soy, and added shredded coconut and green peas. It was kind of lacking flavour, so I added red pepper flakes, cumin, and a pinch of cinnamon.

Breakfast Kolaches

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2006
I found the directions for these to be a little vague. Having randomly stumbled upon this recipe, I decided to try it, never having seen actual kolaches before.In the end, I had to search around on the internet for better directions for assembling them. I found it easier to roll the sausages up like pigs in a blanket rather than just placing them on the centre of the dough. Good, but nothing spectacular.

Best Ever Muffins

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2006
Good, easy to make and adapt to your preferences. I was surprised by the texture of the batter - it was closer to cookie dough. I added 1tsp of cinnamon to the batter, and made 6 muffins filled with Nutella, and 6 peanut butter chocolate chip muffins.

Honey Wheat Bread I

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2005
When this came out of the oven yesterday, I was concerned - the bread seemed like it wasn't done inside, while the crust was close to black. So I shrugged, and figured that it wasn't meant to be. I went to have a slice today, however, and it's GREAT! Seems like the bread has settled or something. Have eaten altogether too much of it. As for the recipe itself, I found that it took about 2hours for the bread one the first rise, and then about 45 minutes for the second. Overall, very good. Will definately make again.

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Muffins

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2005
I wasn't thrilled with these, but my husband quite likes them. I used 1/2 cup of whole wheat flour and 3/4 white flour, and added 1/4 cup ground flax seeds. Muffins are very dense. Topped these with some brown sugar before baking, but I don't think it's necessary - I would skip adding it next time.

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2005
3.5 stars. Good, nothing special. Basically tastes like standard muffin batter. Husband liked them though.

Ciabatta

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2005
Very good. I let sponge sit for almost 24 hours. Bread tastes like mild flavoured sourdough. Next time I will add more yeast to sponge to see what happens. Was excellent sliced, toasted, and filled with hamburger. Will definately make again (and perhaps top with thyme, salt, pepper, rosemary, etc).

Spinach Brownies

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2005
Simple to make, surprisingly rich flavour. I halved the recipe and cut down the amount of butter, and it turned out well. Think broccoli would also taste nice. Will make again and try adding some other veggies and cheeses.

Hearty Breakfast Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2005
Awesome! I used about 1/3 cup of butter and added two mashed ripe bananas, used 1/2 cup whole flax seed in place of the wheat germ, and added 1/4 cup of skim milk powder to the dry ingredients. I also added 1/4 cup of sesame seeds, 3/4 cup milk chocolate chips, 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips, and some peanuts and whole almonds in place of the raisins. These cookies are dense and filling - not overly sweet. Taste very wholesome! I can't believe this recipe is only supposed to make 12 cookies - I ended up with close to 40 (regular sized) cookies. Will definately make again and again.

Sunshine Morning Muesli

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2005
Really really good! And filling. I didn't have oat bran, so I threw in some flax seeds. Skipped the milk and walnuts - topped with some sliced banana and honey. Will definately make again and again!

Italian Herb Bread I

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2005
Good, but not spectacular. This bread is very flavourful - best eaten on its own with some butter. Didn't rise at all - perhaps because of the amount of flour(seemed like too much, but the recipe states that dough should be stiff...)? I made buns which were more like biscuits. Nice and dense.

Sloppy Joes II

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2005
Very good! Nice simple comfort food. I didn't add any sugar at all - didn't need it (was salty, but in a good way). Also added about 1/2 tsp chili powder. Will definately make again.

Peanut Noodles

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2005
Good, but nothing spectacular. Found this to be quite salty - if I make it again I would definately add more sugar. Topped with beansprouts and shreds of carrot which was a nice addition. Very filling.

Addictive Sweet Potato Burritos

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2005
This recipe caught my eye as it is sweet potato (satsumaimo) season here in Japan. I halved the recipe and used a can of refried beans in place of the kidney beans. I was a little worried about the amount of chili powder, so I halved it, and even then it was far too spicy for my husband and I. I'm not sure about the mustard flavour myself, but my husband had no complaints. I would make this recipe again, but would definately adjust the spices.

Sweet Potato Cookies II

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2005
I made these cookies using Japanese sweet potato (satsumaimo) and they turned out very well. Was a bit worried when I started to mix everything together (seemed like way too much flour), but they ended up fine. Nice delicate flavour (after reading other reviews I added 1/2 tsp vanilla). Turned out like little scone-cookies. My husband took them to work where they were apparently gobbled up by his Japanese co-workers. Would definately make again, perhaps experiment more with different flavour additions.
