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.

Mexican Bean Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2007
Always a hit, I find this recipe easy. I prefer it with a bit less dressing, but everyone else always like it as is.

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!

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!

Slow Cooker Beef Stew IV

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2008
Delicious and healthy! I used all of the reviewer reccommendations and think all the fresh veggies make it the best. My favourites are sweet potato, green beans, mushrooms and peas- yum! I only used one onion and less butter than reccommended and it is still amazingly flavourful- mmmm!

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

Toasted Garlic Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2012
I followed What a Dish!'s review suggestions and WOW! Considering this is my first attempt ever at homemade garlic bread, this was AMAZING! I used a sourdough baguette and some parmesan with the mozzarella. It was too good!

Peanut Butter Kiss Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2009
I live in Australia and since we don't have Hershey's kisses, I used squares of Cadbury's milk chocolate instead. Addictive!

Carrot Cupcakes with White Chocolate Cream Cheese Icing

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2009
These got rave reviews, but I used icing from Carrot Cake II as I prefer cream cheese. They were a bit tough to get out of the pan straight from the oven. I may try letting them cool in the pan first, then dumping them on the wire rack next time.

House Fried Rice

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2011
This was a perfect base recipe! I used a package of frozen veges for colour and it presented well, and tasted amazing. I can't wait to try the left-overs! Very simple and easy to make, even my two year old daughter was able to help, much to her delight. I omitted the shrimp and chicken and didn't miss them. Thanks for sharing!

Cream Of Green Chile Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2006
So many people thanked me for this recipe that I have to give it 5 stars. I added jalepenos to make it spicier and it was perfect. I liked it without the cream, so I left it on the side so people who aren't used to spicy food could add some. It got rave reviews with and without the cream. I used vegetable stock to make it vegetarian.

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!

Pasta Bake

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2012
I almost never give 5 stars, but this dish is SO easy and delicious, everyone in the family loves it. I use fresh mushrooms, garlic, basil, spinach, and added some leftover sausage, as well as some seasoning to the sauce. I love a quick and easy meal!
