I have become totally obsessed with this dish from IHOP.  The bad thing is, there are over 1000 calories in the dish from IHOP.  Of course the hollandaise sauce is what makes the dish delicious, so I couldn't very well omit that.  I did, however substitute the eggs with a healthy egg substitute.  These garden stuffed crepes are delicious, try at your own risk of becoming addicted.

My taste buds have graduated from Orange Chicken to General Tso's Chicken recently.  I like the sweetness of it mixed with the heat of the red pepper.  This is my new meat compliment to a chow mein noodle dish.  You like it hot?

All the flavors of a philly cheese steak sandwich wrapped up neatly in a baked pizza crust.  Next time I would probably omit the seasoning as the deli meat and cheese added enough salt to it.

It's that time of year where everything is coming up pumpkin.  I'm not sure if I love Fall because of all the pumpkin goodies or if I love pumpkin so much that I can't wait for Fall to get here.  A simple traditional treat with the flavors of Fall is sure to please all.

Taco's are such an easy meal to throw together in a hurry.  I usually cook several boneless, skinless chicken breast at a time and freeze them for later use.  With the chicken already cooked, these can be ready in a pinch.  The chicken is a healthy alternative to traditional beef taco's.  Can be made with soft flour tortilla's as well.

My Mom use to make stuffed peppers when I was a kid, of course I hated them.  I really didn't care for bell peppers until just recently.  I didn't want to make the traditional stuffed pepper with rice and ground beef, so this is my version of a stuffed pepper.  It was quite tasty.

This recipe looked so good and so simple to make.  I found it to be a bit bland.  The original recipe called for cream cheese and I substituted it with the greek yogurt cream cheese, this was probably the reason for it being bland.  The fat in original cream cheese would have gave it more flavor.
