Grandma's Fresh Apple Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2014
I used 3 large apples with chopped dates and walnuts, and used 'pretend' brown sugar. I also took note of another reviewer's hints and added an extra egg and a dribble of milk for consistency. An absolute dream!!! What a gorgeous recipe. Will be making this again and again!

Onion Bread II

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2014
It didn't rise at first, and it took about 2 hours in all, but I put that down to my airing cupboard not being warm enough. A padded radiator finally did the trick! I put in about twice the onion and a full teaspoon of oregano, and replaced one of the cups of strong bread flour with wholemeal. I also used a sugar substitute, and olive oil to brush the loaves (I only have small loaf tins, hence 2 small loaves), and although the dough appeared really dense, it cooked beautifully. The bread is light, moist and incredibly tasty. My first ever attempt at bread, and it was a huge success!

Avocado Feta Salsa

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2014
Added a little lime juice and chopped coriander instead of parsley. Served with Key West Chicken (also on this site) and it worked perfectly. Very tasty and easy to make.

Key West Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2014
Took the hint from other reviewers and lowered the soy content and upped the honey and lime. I also added some lime zest which gave extra zing without overpowering the other flavours. Utterly delicious, and will be a mainstay in our house. Served it with basmati rice and avocado feta salsa, also from this site.

Grandmother's Buttermilk Cornbread

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2013
As a Brit with an American husband who has lived here in the UK for 30 years, I've been looking for the perfect cornbread recipe - and I've finally found it. Hubby LOVES this cornbread, and it turns out beautifully every time. It keeps well (although it never lasts very long) and is easy to make.
