Gourmet White Pizza
Great flavors - I used homemade crust that I baked to almost brown before adding the toppings. Next time I am going to reduce the amount of Alfredo sauce and let it cook a bit longer b/c it came out a little soggy.

Slow Cooker Mongolian Beef
Super Yummy with a few changes. I could only find 1.5 lb flank steak so I went with that and like others, halved the brown sugar, put the green onions in after two hours, and threw in some broccoli florets towards the end. The one thing I did which I think totally made the dish was throw in two teaspoons of Asian Chili Garlic Sauce (Lee Kum Kee). The slight kick balanced out the sweetness of the sauce PERFECTLY. Of course, you can add more or less depending on your taste but I had to make it kid friendly. Overall a great meal.

Pastitsio II
I know that every greek thinks their family makes the best pastitsio or moussaka or sponakopita (or insert recipe title here) but I was not thrilled by this one at all. This recipe is tasty but not authentic at all. Itis less of a pastitsio and more of a lazy lasagna. Any pastitsio that does not call for cinnamon is usually a bit off. As I said, it is a yummy dish more or less but I believe misses the flavors of an authentic pastitsio.
