Ladyfingers

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2008
These were delicious. I made them for a tiramisu, but they would be yummy on their own or eaten with coffee. They do spread out quite a bit, so it would be good to space them out on the pan. I didn't have a piping bag, so I just spooned them out into longish shapes on the pan, and they turned out fine. These fingers are soft and spongy, which is suitable for a tiramisu.

Italian Biscotti

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2005
This is a good, simple recipe. These are my mum's favourite and I've made them a few times for her. I like cutting them into small delicate slices so they look like pretty little biscuits.

Mom's Ginger Snaps

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2005
These are so good and easy to make. It's crispy on the outside and gingerbread-like on the inside. Rolling the dough in sugar gives it a nice glittery and crispy surface. I followed the recipe exactly. Be careful not to overbake ... 10 minutes is sufficient.

Rosemary Marinated Lamb Chops

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2008
A delicious and simple recipe. I made the original amount of marinade for 4 small lamb chops, which was just enough for 2 persons. Important to reduce the marinade at the end or the sauce will be taste too strongly of the wine.

Pad Thai

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2008
Very simple and delicious. I didn't have fish sauce at hand so I used light soya sauce but it turned out well anyway. Will definitely make it again.

Pancakes I

Reviewed: May 3, 2008
I've made these pancakes many times, and they're really yummy (almost like McDonald's Hotcakes). I add about 2-3 times more sugar so they're a little tastier and cook them in a small round pan on small flame to get the right amount of brown-ess on one side.

Mini Cheesecakes I

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2008
These were yummy. I added a few drops of lemon juice to cut through the rich cream cheese, and it tasted pretty good. The crust was a little loose as usually I would press down the crushed biscuits quite hard into a tin to make a no-bake cheesecake, but I couldn't compact them enough into a muffin cup. Anyways, the taste was great.

The Best Pavlova

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2008
This recipe produced a pavlova that was probably perfect for me. It was crisp on the exterior and melt-in-the-mouth on the interior, the crust was slightly golden in colour and there wasn't even a single crack on the pavlova. I used about 1 cup of sugar, which I thought made the pavlova too sweet. I'm not sure whether reducing the amount of sugar will affect the appearance and texture of the pavlova though.

One Bowl Chocolate Cake III

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2008
I made cupcakes using this recipe and they turned out great - rich and chocolatey without being too sweet. I halved the recipe and made 12 large cupcakes. I added a simple milk chocolate icing and chopped walnuts on top of the cupcakes and they tasted even yummier.

Waffles I

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2008
These waffles were tasty and fragrant with a light texture. I made them a few times, and they tasted better and were lighter when I whisked the egg whites separately.

MMMMM... Brownies

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2008
These brownies were fudgy and gooey with a flaky crust on top. They were the closest to Betty Crocker's style brownies out of the other recipes I tried. It's definitely my favourite recipe now.

Zucchini Brownies

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2008
This was one of the top 3 brownies I ever made or ate. The batter was dry, but I mixed it as well as I could and padded it evenly into the pan. It still looked dry when it came out of the oven but it was so soft to cut and turned out to be really moist and dark and gooey. I grated the zucchini rather finely and did not taste any zucchini in the brownie at all. Will definitely make it again as it's the healthiest and one of the yummiest chocolate recipe I know!

Banana Cake II

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2008
This banana cake is very cake-y and not bread-y at all. I made two-thirds of this recipe thinking that it would fit better into an 8 X 8 cake pan. It turned out to be a nice thick cake. The recipe was really tasty and delicious. I added a dash of nutmeg and cinnamon powder, and chocolate chips and chopped walnuts which I think made it more tasty. But next time I will probably make a couple more small adjustments, like using 3 large bananas instead of 2 so it is more banana-ish, and about 30 ml less milk so that the batter is thicker and holds the chocolate chips and walnuts better (this is for two-third recipe).

Delicious Healthy Strawberry Shake

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2008
I followed this recipe generally and the strawberry shake turned out so delicious and thick and creamy, even though it didn't use any cream or ice-cream. I froze about 3 cups of fresh strawberries in the freezer then pulsed them in a blender. I then added milk and continued blending it till it was a thick and smooth consistency (about 2 cups of milk, I think). I then added white sugar (as I didn't have honey) until it reached the desired sweetness (about 4 tablespoons). We all enjoyed it and it was very filling because of the large quantity of strawberries in it.

Best Carrot Cake Ever

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2005
I tried making this recipe 3 times, and it did not work out. The batter did not rise even though I tried increasing the temperature or even discarding some liquid from the mixture. The other recipes call for 4 eggs per 3 cups carrot. I may try one of those.
