Help! Request for recipes

Dave and I are in a funk.  I blame it on this winter - in fact, I blame everything on this winter right now.

But this time, it's with our menu.  We're tired of the tried and true things that we eat somewhat regularly, but we're having problems finding new recipes that we're excited about.  We've tried a couple that sounded promising, but were actually pretty awful when we made them, and then we felt bad for being so wasteful when we didn't want to eat it.

So, we've decided that we need recommendations from people that we know (or even just "sort of" know through this blog.) 

What's your favorite recipe?  Could you e-mail it to me? Or post a link to it in the comments section? 

I have quite a few allergies (peanut butter, onions, garlic, dairy, and shrimp, just to name a few) but as long as the recipe isn't centered around one of those items, I can usually do some substitutions to still make a recipe work for me.  Some things that we make on a regular basis (just so you have a sense of what we already eat) include:
  • Tacos, burritos, pretty much anything mexican
  • Lasagna and regular old spaghetti
  • Breakfast for dinner (usually waffles with sausage) 
  • Sesame chicken (some Asian recipes would be great!)
  • Breaded chicken and potatoes
  • Chili

So, what's your favorite meal!?!?  Any and all suggestions are appreciated!!!

Girl, go to my blog & check out my recipes. I have them listed in the sidebar. My favorite would probably be the Sausage Potato Soup & Penne & Sausage casserole (ok, i'm not a huge sausage eater, that's kinda wierd!)! The stir fry i have listed is also DELICIOUS & i now keep those things on hand to just throw together - so easy!
Hope this helps!

P.S. i'm not by any means an awesome cook, this is my first year cooking haha but i have found that i love it & i put notes in my recipes of how i would change it if i did it again.

Here is a link to all the recipes I've posted...

A lot of them probably have the things you are allergic too but there should be SOMETHING that you can make. :)

This is a good one, substitutes should be easy:

Also, roasted vegetables are a new favorite (cut up carrots, sweet potatoes, turnips and onions toss with a little bit of oil and pepper; 450F for 50ish minutes) are a new favorite with some sort of protein. They are surprisingly sweet and delicious.
