Debbie’s favorite recipes

 

To be honest when I got married, I didn’t really know how to cook or bake.  I could follow a recipe with limited success & everything I made was sort of bland.  I like to eat, so I had to figure this out (& I did!).  I have a sweet tooth, so I would prefer to bake.  

The hardest thing was not learning how to cook but having to figure out what’s for dinner for the rest of my life!  While juggling work and children.  

When I am really busy I go to Palma Pasta (on Prince Michael/Dundas) they have a daily hot dinner special.  Our family favourite is Tuesday’s meat lasagna $14.99.   

These are quick and easy recipes that everyone loves. 

Curry Chicken Wraps 

You can use left over chicken or pick up a rotisserie chicken for the curry chicken wraps.  The curry in this recipe is a thai red curry paste which is DELICIOUS!! You can find it at most grocery stores.  

  • 1 whole cooked chicken (shredded) 
  • 3 green apples diced 
  • 1cup sliced green onions 
  • 1 cup sunflower seeds 
  • 1 cup raisins 
  • 1 cup red peppers diced 
  • 1 cup mayonnaise mixed with 1 tsp red curry paste 
  • Tortilla shells 

Mix all ingredients & refrigerate for 1 hour 

Spread the filling in the tortilla & wrap.   

I often cut them in half so they are easier to eat.
