Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have to stop buying this woman's books! They read as if they've been fed through translation software a few times, unchecked and unedited. Her idiomatic franglais is excruciating. The characters flip-flop through emotions serving only to drive the plot forward - remaining little more than caricatures subjected to extraordinary coincidences. and the constant product placement! Awful!

2.0 out of 5 stars faulty, 17 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Martha Stewart Cookies (Paperback)
having baked a couple of recipes from this book - using American cup measures - I was disappointed with the results. There seem to be numerous errors in the recipes. The molasses cookie recipe advises 17 minutes cooking time which is far too long, I tested various times and 12 minutes seemed best, which is too great a difference to be the setting of my oven. The mixture was too soft to use before chilling for 24hours and produced double the amount quoted.

I have checked Martha's website and the online version of this recipe looks rewritten, and advises 10-12 minutes cooking time. I could find no reference to there being published corrections, but there clearly have been - so bake from the book at your own risk!


Philips HR2020/50 Jug Blender, 1.75 L,400 W - Silver
Philips HR2020/50 Jug Blender, 1.75 L,400 W - Silver
Price: £19.99

5.0 out of 5 stars 2 weeks in, and everything just how it should be, 14 July 2013
we've had this blender for 2 weeks, and so far have made gazpacho, 2 types of milkshake, pureed soft fruit, and today ground walnuts to a fine powder. The blender has risen to each occasion perfectly. The jug is lightweight which makes such a difference compared to my old thick glass version.

As the last posting mentioned, the jug slots onto the motor in the same way as most blenders, as does the lid - you just have to align each piece correctly.
I was especially pleased with the little hooks under the base for storing the cord away neatly.

The finely ground walnuts have just made a delicious walnut, apricot and lavender cake - courtesy of Yottam Ottolenghi from his Guardian column - the perfect taste of summer!

1.0 out of 5 stars rubbish rubbish rubbish, 24 Mar. 2013
Narcissistic doesn't even get close.
I just don't care about the mindless meanderings of a 20something self-declared playwright, only irritated took me 150 pages to realise almost anything is more interesting.
