Grilled Salmon Fillets with a Lemon, Tarragon, and Garlic Sauce

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2011
Outstanding! I was afraid the garlic and lemon would overpower the salmon but I was so wrong. I must prepared salmon 50 different ways and, so far, this is a hands down favourite. I took the advice of a few reviewers and prepared the sauce a few hours ahead and because I'm not fond of cold sauces over hot dishes, I applied the sauce for the last half of the cooking time and reserved some of the cold sauce for dipping. What a treat! My wife steamed some broccoli with garlic and red peppers then chilled it and added some olive oil and I baked some sweet potatoes with a splash of honey to complete the plate and it turned out to be one of those dinners where everything complimented everything else. Our discussion over dinner (between mmmm's and 'oh yeah's' was about who we could invite the next time we make this. Our only disappointment is that we could only award this recipe 5 stars.

Italian Bread Using a Bread Machine

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2009
I was also impressed by the multitude of praise for this bread. I'm about to make it for the 10th time in 2 weeks. I've added cheese to it and garlic. It's an easy 5 stars.

Taco Seasoning I

Reviewed: May 10, 2011
Outstanding! I've tried quite a few recipes for tacos but I think I've found the one I'll keep. Didn't change anything except I omitted the hot pepper and halved the salt as a personal preference. I have to say I was a bit disappointed when I tasted the meat/seasoning mixture on it's own but when we built up the tacos with all the fixings it was a grand slam. Awesome. Simply Awesome.

Real Chiles Rellenos

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2012
The good? It was ALL good. It took some work but most of it was in the side dishes and, since my electric mixer is on the fritz, I had to whisk the egg whites the old fashion way. My arm still aches. Would I do it all again? Absolutely! I was a little taken aback about putting the stuffed peppers for "at least 30 minutes," but I soon discovered that it is an integral step. It makes handling the once floppy peppers a breeze. Bottom line is it was a bit of work but the result was well worth it. I've paid $25+(each person) for these at a restaurant and they weren't as good. This recipe might cost $12 (plus sides) to feed 4. Go for it and make any personal adjustments to your taste.

Fish Tacos

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2013
Off the Charts! The only thing we changed was the fish - we were wondering what to do with some nice halibut someone had brought home and decided to try this instead of fish'n'chips. All the flavours meld perfectly. This one goes to the top of the 'Keeper' list.

Turkey Taco Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2012
I deducted a star only because it calls for prepared taco mix instead of just including the spices in the mix.. Otherwise, we enjoyed this soup and will make it again. Yeah, I'll tinker with the ingredients but, all in all, this soup is delicious as written. I got the taco seasoning recipe from this same site, specifically here: http://allrecipes.com/recipe/taco-seasoning-i/

Caesar Salad Supreme

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2008
I'm always looking for _that_ certain Caesar dressing and decided on this one the other day. It was OK but didn't resemble any Caesar I've had before so there was some mild disappointment (only in that it wasn't what I was expecting). I'll probably give it another shot someday.
