Barbequed Marinated Flank Steak

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2012
Made it exactly as directed, except only marinated for 2 hours. I'm sure it would be even better with a longer time, but it was delicious even with only a short marinade time! Boiled the remaining marinade to make it safe and served the thinly sliced meat on a platter with the cooked marinade drizzled over. Looking forward to the cold leftovers tomorrow night. Thank you for sharing.

Mrs. Sigg's Fresh Pumpkin Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2011
Delicious pie, very nice light texture. Did as suggested by another reviewer and whizzed all the ingredients in my food processor. I had to guess the amount of pumpkin as we don't have sugar pumpkins here in Australia, so used half a butternut pumpkin which I just microwaved in the skin and scooped out when soft. We also don't have tinned pumpkin, so really appreciated a recipe using fresh. It all worked out well, and we had the pie with dollop cream. Thanks very much!

Brown Sugar and Spice Dry Ham Rub

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2011
Used this rub on a 5kg sugar-cured smoked ham on the bone. Scored the fat into diamonds, rubbed in the mix, then studded with whole cloves. Baked at 180 degrees Celsius for 50 minutes, basting every 10 minutes with the juices from the ham. I made my own pumpkin spice from a recipe from this site, but due to allergies I subbed pimento (allspice) for cinnamon and omitted onion. Absolutely delicious - thanks very much for sharing!

Hello Dollies II

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2011
Easy! Delicious! Economical! Rave reviews! Thanks for this great, versatile recipe. Haven't had this before, have now made it 3 times in a fortnight, my co-workers love it. Made it as per recipe the first time (minus pecans, nut allergy) - fantastic! The second time I subbed dark chocolate for the semisweet, and chopped glace cherries and Craisins for pecans, and the third time I subbed white choc for the semisweet, and glace cherries instead of pecans, and added an extra half a tin of milk. I wanted a recipe that was easy to make from items I'd have on hand, and this is it. Thank you very much for sharing!

Christmas Breakfast Sausage Casserole

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2011
This was so easy and delicious! Used diced bacon as had no sausage which was great, but looking forward to trying with pork & sage sausage meat. As I was looking for a quick dinner recipe I made it and cooked it straight away, and as I had a warmed ceramic baking dish, hot bacon, and it hadn't chilled overnight in the fridge, it only took 25-30 minutes to be perfectly cooked. Kids loved it too, and the leftovers were still delicious when gently reheated in the microwave the next day. Thanks for such a lovely recipe, I will make it ready for Christmas Breakfast this year.

Candied Garlic Chicken Wings

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2011
Great marinade. I used only 1 cup of honey as that's all I had and found it a good balance between the sweetness and the saltiness of the soy sauce. I also added 2 teaspoons of minced ginger for some zing. Was delicious with skinless chicken thighs. Thanks!

White Chocolate Sour Cream Frosting

Reviewed: May 20, 2011
Used good quality white chocolate, melted in the microwave. Put sour cream in a larger bowl and used electric beaters to whip for half a minute then slowly drizzled in the cooled chocolate. No lumps, and a light whipped texture. Beautiful flavour, not too sweet - perfect to top the white chocolate mud cake I made. Many thanks for the easiest "gourmet" frosting recipe ever!

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins

Reviewed: May 14, 2011
Delicious! Great colour and texture, not too sweet, and pumpkin is a nice delicate flavour which went really well with dark chocolate. Used fresh steamed pumpkin instead of tinned, dark chocolate chips, and omitted ground cloves as I didn't have any. Thanks for the recipe, I'll be making again.

Best Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2010
This is a sensational recipe. I've made it once with 70% cocoa chocolate so the chocolate is gooey, and once with choc, milk and dark chips which held their shape. Both ways were fantastic. I needed a recipe that I could make quickly in my food processor and this was perfect - creamed the unmelted margerine with the sugar, added the eggs, then dry ingredients, and then just pulsed the choc through. Agree with the other reviewers that mix does better after a good chilling. Also kept some raw mix until the next day to cook at my sister's place as I wanted them 'just out of the oven' and the mix was still excellent. Made sure I took them out before they looked done which was just right - the edges are slightly crunchy and the middle cooked but deliciously chewy, very like the Mrs Fields cookies here in Australia . . . only BETTER! Made 6 dozen for my daughter for school the night before and although they were a little less chewy by the afternoon they were still delicious, so it's a very forgiving recipe. Many thanks, my quest for the best cookie recipe here endeth!!

Award Winning Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2010
Great recipe! Also thanks for great advice from earlier reviewers who actually followed the recipe: used baking powder; creamed butter and sugar well; used beaters for everything except chocolate; mix doesn't spread; took out at 11 mins. I didn't have enough chocolate and it was cheap milk choc compound block, so agree it should be semi-sweet chic chips (my mistake, not recipe). I also used chocolate pudding and it was delicious. Baked some which were devoured and froze the rest for another day. Thanks for sharing.

Rosemary-Scented Pork Loin Stuffed With Roasted Garlic, Dried Apricots and Cranberries and Port Wine Pan Sauce

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2007
I made this last Christmas for my family and got rave reviews. As I was cooking it early to take to Christmas lunch I didn't do the glaze and just had a traditional crackling instead. Wrapped it well in foil and it had the standing time in the car on the way to Mum's. It was just nicely warm for lunch, moist and flavoursome, with excellent crackling. The rosemary/cranberry combination was really good - a nice change from the usual apricot/prune stuffing. I will definitely make this again. With thanks from Sydney, Australia.

Coconut Ambrosia Salad

Reviewed: May 23, 2007
We loved this recipe! Couldn't find Whipped Topping here in Australia (so instead used 1 cup heavy cream whipped until almost stiff, added 1/2 cup sugar and 1 tsp vanilla and beat until peaks hold) and omitted the milk. Guests are a bit suprised at the ingredients, but there is never any left! Thanks very much.

Cheesy Baked Cauliflower

Reviewed: May 14, 2007
This is the best cauliflower recipe ever! I used Apricot Mustard because I had it on hand and it was delicious. If I am in a hurry I microwave the cauliflower as florets then add the toppings and grill until brown. My family can eat a whole cauliflower for dinner now. Guests give me skeptical looks when I say I've made them Baked Cauliflower, but there is NEVER any left! Thanks so much, from Sydney Australia.
