Spinach Quiche

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2014
My husband had invited a colleague to dinner recently. I know the rule about trying new recipes on guests but this looked so good, I couldn't resist. Well, this came out so well that both the men had seconds. I will offer a word of caution to anybody like me (in rural Australia) that cannot get a large pie crust, you will only be able to fit half the filling in a small crust. I used the leftovers next day by filling muffin tins and making mini-quiches. These came out really well, too. I will be making this again. It's very nice in the summer with a salad. Highly recommended.

Thai Pineapple Chicken Curry

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2013
Very tasty. I made some changes - some by accident, some by design. We are vegetarians so I substituted 4 pieces of soy chicken and 1 cube of vegetarian chicken stock for the chicken. I substituted soy sauce for the fish sauce. I used a whole red pepper and a whole yellow pepper instead of half and I added a handful of chopped peanuts and some garlic. I ran out of red curry paste so used half Pad Thai paste. It still tasted great. I also stir-fried all of the vegetables in advance before adding the rest of the ingredients. I let it simmer for about 1/2 hour then served on Basmati rice. I did find it a bit thin so next time I will add 1 T of corn starch to thicken it up.

Fluffy Pancakes

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2013
I made these for Pancake Tuesday this week and they were a huge hit. I have been searching for years for the perfect pancake recipe - fluffy, light, tasty and very absorbent - and these were perfect. They were quite filling - my husband and I had two each and that was plenty.

Rice Salad

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2013
It was 37 deg (C) here in our area of Australia today and I was looking for something cool to serve. This was terrific. My husband is a notoriously slow eater and wolfed this down. I did make a couple of changes. We are vegetarians so I used a tin of chick peas (rinsed) instead of tuna. Also, I did not have any pimento so used sun-dried tomatoes instead. I used basmati rice and chilled for a few hours before serving. This will be a regular summer dish for us.

Vegetarian Korma

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2013
This came out really well - enjoyed by both hubby and me. I did make a few changes. I added about 2 cups of chopped cauliflower, 2 chopped tomatoes and increased the frozen peas to two cups. Also, instead of cream I used soy milk which may have made this a bit thinner in consistency. I made this 1 1/2 hours before serving. After stir frying the onion, garlic and peppers, I added the rest of the vegetables (raw) with the tomato sauce and let simmer, adding the milk, cashews (chopped) and peas about 1/2 hour before serving. I served it on basmati rice.

Eggnog Fruit Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2012
The loaf came out really well. I think next time I will add more cherries and use mixed fruit instead of raisins. I will also add a bit of nutmeg as it could have been a bit spicier.

Extra-Easy Spinach Lasagna

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2012
I was looking for something quick and easy to bring for lunch with my mother-in-law. I made this in 40 minutes and it was delicious. My mother-in-law asked for the recipe. The only change I made was to sprinkle the top with parmesan cheese before it went in for the final 10 minutes of baking.

Melt - In - Your - Mouth Shortbread

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2012
These do literally melt in your mouth. They come out very light and are a bit fragile. I cooked them in a 190 deg (C) oven for 10 minutes.

The Best Rolled Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2012
I made these today. Make sure that you roll the dough thick enough otherwise they overcook at the edges. They were perfectly cooked after 6 minutes at 200 deg C. Very nice flavour.
