I recently retired as teacher of computers and electronics at an Ontario community college and am currently working part-time as a technical writer. My husband and I enjoy travelling and trying new food and wines.

At the moment raw milk goat's cheese is right up there! I also adore red peppers (especially grilled) and fresh artichokes. And generally I really enjoy preparing one-dish meals such as hearty soups, stews and casseroles.

Turkey and Spinach Enchiladas

Turkey and Spinach Enchiladas

This is an incredibly delicious way to use up leftover turkey. I used 9 small corn tortillas and only put 1/3 cup of the filling into each. I also used a casserole that couldn't be put under the broiler, so I baked for 20 minutes with foil and another 10 without. Can't say enough about how tasty this was. — rachelspence33 10/14/2012

I am not a huge fan of cranberry sauce, but this one is amazing! Aside from turkey, it's great with ham and I have been known to use leftovers as jam on toast. — susanjm 10/5/2012

Hi Susan,

I am planning on making it (Summer prawn salad) for a BBQ get together with friends on Saturdsy. It looks SO good and I can only imagine how great it will taste. I will let you know how it goes. Keep an eye out for a rating any day after Saturday! That is of course if I can roll off the the outdoor setting to get to the computer ;)

Portuguese Lamb or Goat Stew (Chanf11/18/2007 5:49:21 AM
I've stumbled across your Portuguese Lamb or Goat Stew (Chanfana) recipe. Well, being Portuguese and a natural to the Capital of Chanfana, (the town of Miranda do Corvo and surrounding village of Semide) I just want to suggest that if Susan comes to Portugal she should try the real thing (not exactly this recipe). Any way this seems good enough but I if she liked this, she will be surprised by true CHANFANA. By the way this is one of my favourite Portuguese foods.
