Fabulously Sweet Pear Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2010
Great recipe, Rory. Moist, tasty and moreish. I followed the suggestions of: - adding ginger and cinnamon to dry ingredients - forgot to puree the pear mixture but was still fine - only needed to bake for an hour - added thin pear slices to top of cake before baking - used 1/2 C oil and 1/2C apple sauce.

Cinnamon Coffee Cake II

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2009
Delicious! Loved by everyone at work. I substituted brewed coffee for the water. For the Australian members, I used Betty Crocker's vanilla cake mix and 2 Cottees vanilla puddings. The cake is so moist and keeps well - if there are any left overs!

Honey Glazed Carrots

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2009
Great recipe! Just what I was looking for to accompany the turkey for Christmas Eve dinner. I didn't have MSG and forgot the herbs but it still turned out great!

Sweet Potato Pound Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2009
Thanks for a great recipe, Anne. I made this at the weekend and it was a perfect cake to take into work. Not too sweet, even with the glaze, easy to cut and pretty light. I made the following modifications based on previous reviewers: - half butter substituted for apple sauce - more spice with 1tsp mixed spice, 1/2 tsp ginger - baked for an hour I should have put the glaze on earlier, I waited 20 minutes before inverting and glazing, the cake wasn't warm enough to fully absorb the glaze. Will definitely make this again.

Chocolate Zucchini Cake III

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2009
The best chocolate cake I have baked. Thank you for posting, Sandy. I followed the advice of using apple sauce in place of half the oil. I made a chocolate frosting with creamed butter, icing sugar, cocoa and milk and it was a perfect match. The cake is so moist and I can convince myself that it is healthy!!

Fragrant Chicken Curry

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2009
Thank you for a quick and healthy recipe. We loved this dish, serving with mango chutney and coriander really brought the flavours to life. I did not have ground cloves so added turmeric, cumin and ground coriander to my spice mix. For flavouring toward the end of cooking I added soya sauce and some honey with ginger pieces in it. I discarded the skin from my chicken befor adding the meat to the curry. I also bulked up the curry with chopped celery, capsicum (red and green) and some potatoes. Had quite a few extra vegies to use up thid weekend. Will definitely make this again

Slow Cooker Baked Beans

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2009
I don't know if I can every eat canned baked beans again after eating these. This is an easy, healthy recipe that is lovely to make the night before on a winter's night and have something delicious for breakfast the next day. I had to make some substitutions due to things not being the same in Australia: - I used a 500g package of dried lima beans as this was all there was at the grocer. Soaked them overnight before cooking and also got rid of the husks as well. - Used a 400g can of crushed tomatoes and 2T of tomato paste instead of the ketchup - Added 2 cubes of bacon stock to the water Will make again and again!

Balsamic-Glazed Salmon Fillets

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2009
Thanks for a great way to bake salmon, Isybel. I made this as written but had to use lemon juice instead of the wine as it was all I had. The glaze was fantastic and I am so glad I took the effort rather than buying ready made glaze. Will definitely make again.

Alaska Salmon Bake with Pecan Crunch Coating

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2008
Made it as written for dinner tonight. It was delicious. Thanks so much for showing me a new way to prepare salmon. I was given many salmon cutlets (I usually cook with fillets) and this recipe worked really well. We had the salmon with steamed zucchini and carrots.

Cabbage Beef Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2008
The best slow cooker soup I have ever made. Thanks for the recipe. I pretty much followed all the directions but used ready made beef stock with roast onion instead of stock cubes. To up the vege content, I added frozen peas and corn in the last 4 hours of cooking time. The cumin added a unique taste and I amped it up with a dusting of chilli powder. I am going to make this again and again. Hearty, wholesome and healthy too.

Slow Cooker Vegetable Soup

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2008
This was excellent. I made it as written and my husband and I were both very happy campers. I can never go back to eating tinned beef soups again. This soup was so easy to make and also very healthy. Thanks for posting!

Banana Banana Bread

Reviewed: Jun. 27, 2008
This is a really easy recipe but it did not turn out for me. I am glad that there are a few recent reviews with the problems I had. As written, there wasn't much taste to the bread. Also, mine turned out really heavy. I might try this again but it was disappointing that it did not work for me today.

Thyme-Rubbed Steaks with Sauteed Mushrooms

Reviewed: Jun. 27, 2008
Just made this for dinner tonight. My husband and I both loved this recipe. Thanks so much for posting it. I used scotch fillet. The only modification I made was to use garlic flavoured butter to fry the mushrooms. We ate this dish with roasted asparagus and steamed broccoli. This is a keeper.

Pan Fried Halibut Steak with Light Green Sauce

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2008
A quick and tasty dinner. We enjoyed this. I only had processed herbs on hand. It did alter the taste a little I think, which is why I have only rated it 3 stars. I cut the fat by using evaporated milk instead of cream. I think this would work with any firm white fish. I used ling as I did not have any halibut at hand. Served with steamed broccoli.

Slow Cooker Chicken Parisienne

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2008
We loved this. It was a perfect Sunday dinner for a wet and windy evening. I followed the tips suggested previously. I browned the chicken breasts after marinating them in oil, dried basil, paprika, garlic powder and thyme. When making the sour cream mixture, I used low fat sour cream and added a tablespoon of chicken stock powder. I also used fresh mushrooms. They softened nicely during the slow cooking process. I was so surprised that the chicken was so tender, I often have trouble making skinless chicken breast stay tender. We served this with blanched sugar snap peas and brown rice.

Split Pea Soup

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2008
I made this using a slow cooker. I used a bacon hock as this was all I could find at Coles. Instead of all water, some of the liquid was vegetable stock for me. Really reccommend pre soaking the split peas. For my second trial, I will add some pork stock cubes to the liquid and some Worcestshire sauce during the cooking process. I cooked on low for 10 hours and then teased the meat off the hock and returned to meat to the soup for another hour. Thanks for this recipe. It's a keeper.

Awesome Slow Cooker Pot Roast

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2008
I made this recipe with a few modifications, following previous reviewers. I did not brown my roast but did put chopped carrots, potatoes and celery under my roast. I marinaded the roast in half the mushroom soup/french onion soup mix before pouring the remainder of the soup mix over the roast and vegies. I used beef stock instead of water and also added some beef stock cubes. In hindsight, I don't think I needed to add the extra liquid. The vegies released water into the roast. This is nice basic recipe to personalize. My lean roast was so tender... perfect winter comfort food. Thank you.
