My Thoughts ~ We eat a great deal of Tortillas in our house. We always have them on hand so when I was given this opportunity to review a cookbook about Tortillas I jumped at the chance.

The first thing we went to try is the sweet Tortillas because normally we stick to tortillas as a main dish so I was excited to try to Apple-Cinnamon Tortilla Pockets. I love apples and so does my family so this was sort of a no brainer for us. To say the tortillas pockets were awesome is an under statement. We loved them and they didn't last long at all in our house.

A few days later I grabbed the cookbook to try something different for breakfast and we tried the Bacon, Egg, and Cheese Roll. The only substitution we made was corn tortillas instead of wheat tortillas. They were good also and something I will definitely make for breakfast again.

As I cruised the pages of the cookbook my list of things to try has grown longer and longer next up on my list later this week is Philly Cheese Steak Tacos. Just the sound of them sounds wonderful.
