Antojitos Minis

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2006
I thought these would turn out like mini-tostadas, but they were not like them at all. The tortillas stay pretty soft even adding beans and chili powder, I thought the taste was pretty bland.

Fresh Salsa I

Reviewed: Jun. 27, 2006
Brilliant! I was a bit turned off by the colour and texture of the salsa when it first came out of the blender. After it settled in the fridge for a while, I was more used to it. The secret is definately in roasting the jalapenos. I used an extra one and the spiciness is perfect! I used 3 fresh tomatoes instead of the canned peeled ones as suggested by a reviewer. This is much better than anything I could find at the store!

Lime Chicken Soft Tacos

Reviewed: Jun. 27, 2006
This is the best dish I have ever made! I didn't have red wine vinegar so I used white wine vinegar instead. I juiced a whole lime and added some zest as suggested by other reviewers. I added coriander (cilantro) and hot sauce to spice it up. I mixed everything together and let the chicken marinade in it for a couple hours before cooking and I am so glad I did! There was just the right amount of sauce after cooking. I reccomend adding the Fresh Salsa I recipe from this website. I didn't add cheese as the flavour of the meat is so good without it!

Shrimp Lemon Pepper Linguini

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2006
I modified this recipe with great success! I added spring onion (green onion) with the garlic and green beans (cut into 1" pieces) just before adding the liquids. The only herb I have is corindar (cilantro) which I substituted for the others, adding some dried basil. I added fresh ginger and chili powder to spice it up. Delicious!

Old-World Cabbage Soup

Reviewed: May 13, 2006
This was a good soup, easy to make, but a bit too tangy for me. I might try adding a bit of meat next time and perhaps omitting the tomato juice and using more chicken broth instead to make it less tangy and more savoury.

Restaurant-Style Tequila Lime Chicken

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2005
I have only used the marinade in this recipe, but it is the BEST marinade I have ever used! I shredded the chicken and used it in enchiladas and quesadillas. I didn't have liquid smoke so I used a splash of Worchestor sauce instead. I also left out the ginger. This smelled fantastic while I was cooking!

Phyl's Salsa

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2005
I will probably make this again, but use less sugar next time as it turned out a bit sweet for my taste. I will also definately include the seeds of the chilli peppers next time as it was not as spicy as I would have liked it when I left them out. I only simmered it for one half hour as I like my salsa more pico de gallo style.

Graham Crackers

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2005
Use real shortening! I have used various substitutes and they have always turned out bad!

Bread and Celery Stuffing

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2005
My husband, who has always refused to eat stuffing because he hated it, couldn't get enough of this stuffing! He was eating it for breakfast! I couldn't fit all of it in the turkey so I microwaved the rest, which wasn't as good but still a hit. The house smelled great when I was preparing it. YUM

Green Bean Casserole I

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2005
This turned out watery. I would reccomend cooking at a slightly higher temperature. I think fresh green beans would have been nicer than canned, which were too soggy. I added sauteed onion, but I think it only made it soggier.

Rosemary Roasted Turkey

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2005
My first time cooking a turkey and it turned out wonderful! This makes a fantastic Thanksgiving feast. I didn't have a rack so my turkey just sat in the pan, but it was still fantastic! I also covered the whole pan with foil to keep the moisture in and added oil/spices as I checked on it while it was cooking. Great leftovers!

Perfect Baked Potato

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2005
This takes too long considering you can microwave potatoes and get almost the same taste!

Gerry's Chicken Enchiladas

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2005
I have varied this recipe based on what ingredients I have and on how much time I have to cook, but every time I get rave reviews! No one can get enough of these enchiladas! I prefer corn tortillas and my husband likes flour, so I usually make some of each in the same batch. I reccomend using the recipe for Tequila Lime chicken from this website to marinate the chicken before cooking.

Fish Tacos

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2005
These definately had me missing San Diego! Use a high-quality fish as the flavour definately comes out. Frying the fish is a bit too fatty for me to make these regularly. I might try grilling the fish next time. YUM

Tomato Curry Chicken

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2005
Fun to make, but the flavours are a bit unusual. I might make it again, but it won't be a regular addition.

Banana Loaf Cake I

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2005
This recipe was so easy and I had all the ingredients I needed already in my cupboard. I would suggest not altering the recipe, it's nice and low-fat as is! I used a banana frosting to sweeten it but next time I think cream cheese frosting would be divine.
