California Tortilla Pizzas
These were amazing! I loved the fact that they were nice and crispy and still low in calories. I followed the recommendation of another reviewer and sprayed my tortillas with an olive oil spray. I also added some minced garlic to the vegetables as I was cooking them. I topped these with an Italian cheese blend and a little bit of parmesan...they were a huge hit! Even from my non-veggie loving son. I served these with a nice side salad. Perfect lunch or light dinner meal. Definitely give it a's a keeper here in our house.

Steff's Shepherd Pie
This was good. The reason for 3 stars is I think it actually needed just a little bit of seasoning. I followed the recipe exactly as given. Next time, I think I will cut down on the onion, add in some ground pepper and a little garlic salt, plus a little more cheese. And on a side note, this is really a cottage pie since it uses ground beef instead of ground lamb. I recommend the recipe, it's really good ... thank you for sharing with us.

Chicken and Bacon Shish Kabobs
we made these last night and I have to say...absolutely fabulous. I wasn't too certain about the combination, but it worked, and worked perfectly. The chicken was tender and moist, due in part I think to it having bacon wrapped around it, the mushrooms added a nice flavor/texture contrast and the pineapple added just the right amount of sweet. We all decided that this is going to be a summer time staple. I didn't change a thing in the recipe, followed it exactly as written and thought it was perfect....when you try these, don't change a thing!
