Cranberry Upside-Down Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2007
I cannot believe I did rate this recipe. Everyone loved it. My aunt made it with walnuts and she said it was delicious. I didn't change anything in the recipe, and it was great. My husband did ask for a little more cranberries next time though. I always wrap the springform pan in alum. paper and set it on a pan. I also found that putting a square of parchment paper at the bottom of the pan (bigger so that the edges are outside the pan in between the bottom and the round) prevent any leakage.

Eggplant Parmesan I

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2006
Really good, I used less sauce but that was the only change. I will certainly make it again. It made great leftovers.

Sky High Yorkshire Pudding

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2006
Very good! They rose very high and didn't deflate. I would check them after 25 mn though. After 30 min, they were slightly too brown. Thank you!

Mrs. Sigg's Snickerdoodles

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2006
Oh God, these are so incredibly delicious! I divided the recipe by 2, and made 12 cookies out of the batter. I baked them 11 minutes. They were amazing. Thank you for this wonderful recipe! (I only used butter, and kosher salt)

Zucchini Brownies

Reviewed: Jul. 17, 2006
Delicious, but it's more a cake than a brownie. My husband thought that it was too much choc. with the frosting, and that a cream cheese frosting would have been better. I froze half and we'll see if it's good after it's thawed. Thanks! UPDATE: I made it again and we could see the zucchini! I would suggest soaking the shredded zucchini in the oil first to get it really moist, and then continue with the recipe. It's the only thing different I did the first time...

Thai Charred Eggplant with Tofu

Reviewed: Jul. 3, 2006
I made some changes (used 1 eggplant, no cilantro and less basil, fried the eggplant slices, sprinkled some soy sauce on the tofu, and used red peppers instead of chile). It was excellent and very flavourful. I served the dish with white basmati rice cooked in vegetable stock. Will definitly make it again!

Cranberry Pistachio Biscotti

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2006
They rock, what more can I say =) I used half normal olive oil half canola, because I dont buy light olive oil. Also, 1 cup nuts 1 cup cranberries. I kept them a bit longer in the oven to dry out, just with the heat off and the door slightly open. Delicious! I might try the version with orange extract too.

Brunch Scones

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2006
Delicious. I rolled the dough into a 6 inch log, and rolled it in about 1 tbsp white sugar. I then cut it into slices and set them on a baking sheets. I didn't brush them with the yolk... It was delicious. I froze the leftovers, and reheated them in the microwave for about 30 sec. They were still great. Thanks! UPDATE: Do NOT forget to let them stand 15 mn. I forgot the second time I made them, and they turned out pretty bad.

Molten Chocolate Cakes With Sugar-Coated Raspberries

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2006
These cakes were delicious and easy to make. I made them for Valentine's day, and since I had already baked dinner, we didn't have to wait for the oven to warm up, so it was really fast! I baked them 10 mn, I think that next time I will bake them 2 mn more, making sure I wont overcook them...

Addictive Sweet Potato Burritos

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2005
Mmm... A very nice change from the basic/boring bean burrito! Will certainly make it again. Thank you for that different and tasty recipe! Changes: I saute the onions, and then blend everything (1 14oz can red beans 1 14 oz can sweet potatoes, rinsed). Top with cheese, roll in a tortilla, and lightly fry on both sides (or use no oil in a nonstick saucepan).

Black Bean and Couscous Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2005
Very good and nutricious summer salad! I won't put so much cilantro next time though, and maybe a bit more lime juice.

Wilderness Place Lodge Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2005
This cookies are SO good. They are just perfect. Don't cook more than 12 mn. They will still be soft when out of the oven, but will become harder when cooling down. They don't spread a lot, so you can bake a lot at once.

Rhubarb Strawberry Crunch

I divided the recipe in 2, baked it in a 8*8 square dish, and added a bit of cinnamon to the topping. This aside, I didn't change a thing and my husband loved it! Thanks!

Waffles I

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2005
Very good recipe. I added 1/2 t cinnamon to the mix and use 1/2 whole wheat pasty flour + 1/2 all purpose flour instead of just using white flour. My husband loved these waffles and said they smelled heavenly while they were cooking. Thank you! The recipe makes about 6 medium waffles.
