    The walnut crusted roast looks divine, yummy! It’s making me hungry again…and the mashed potatoes? mmmmmmm

    But actually, they all sound good. LOVE a good steak/beef dinner! Thanks!!!

    I will definitely be trying the herb-crusted steaks this summer! Yum!



  4. thatbobbiegirl on April 15, 2009 at 3:33 pm

    The Walnut Crusted Roast looks like a winner to me. As my son would say, “nom, nom, nom!”

    Herb Crusted Steaks, Red Meat at its finest.



  10. Shanele on April 15, 2009 at 10:30 am

    Mmm…definitely the Herb Crusted Steak!! 🙂



  11. maryjack on April 15, 2009 at 8:37 am

    Mediterranean Beef Pitas…although I would cook and eat any of them! They are all very tempting!



  12. Melissa on April 15, 2009 at 8:25 am

    Herb Crusted Steak… mmmmm

    The Mediterranean beef pitas sounded like the one that my whole family would enjoy eating.



  17. Jennifer B on April 14, 2009 at 2:48 pm

    WALNUT crusted ROAST! mmmmmmm makes my mouth water!!



  18. Crystal on April 14, 2009 at 11:14 am

    Herb crusted steak of course!!! LOL 🙂



  19. Kara on April 14, 2009 at 9:23 am

    The herb crusted steak looks awesome! I can’t wait to try it out.



  20. Sue on April 14, 2009 at 1:28 am

    My kids might cry at the thought of cucumber sauce, but the Mediterranean Beef Pitas look de-lish. Thanks for sharing~



  21. Kristen Harrison on April 13, 2009 at 10:34 pm

    They all looked good, but the herb crusted steak looked the best. I came here because of the link on Melanie Esqueda’s site. Thanks!



  22. Erroll on April 13, 2009 at 8:03 pm

    I noticed that all three recipes were well illustrated, and that can be a big help when trying to follow someone else’s directions for a recipe, diy project, or what-have-you. The photos of the beef pitas really stood out, both the buffet and the closeup of a stuffed pita, and made me want to eat them.

    Erroll



  23. Marsha Perry on April 13, 2009 at 6:25 pm

    I think the pitas sound very good.



  24. Paula H on April 13, 2009 at 4:38 pm

    I think that the Herb Crusted Steaks sound the best to me.



  25. Marsha on April 13, 2009 at 2:54 pm

    The Walnut-Crusted Roast sounds absolutely terrific. The fact that it’s so easy is, well, truth be told, the reason I love it. I bet it’s very hard to make a roast look inviting in photos. I was a little intimidated by the look of the dish.



  26. amybee on April 13, 2009 at 2:16 pm

    I’m planning to try the beef pitas.



  27. ikkinlala on April 13, 2009 at 1:51 pm

    May Canadians enter? The Herb Crusted Steaks look wonderful to me.



  28. Amanda Bunting Comen on April 13, 2009 at 12:26 pm

    The picutre of the herb crusted steak made my mouth water!



  29. Jason Nickolay on April 13, 2009 at 12:20 pm

    The herb crusted steaks all the way.

  31. Cricket on April 13, 2009 at 12:02 pm


  32. Michael Carnell on April 13, 2009 at 11:57 am

    It has to be the Herb Crusted Steaks. Love herbs, love steaks. What could be better than a combination?!



  33. Melissa on April 13, 2009 at 11:51 am

    The herb crusted steaks were my #1. Thank you!



  34. Sarah Kooymans on April 13, 2009 at 11:10 am

    The herb crusted steaks look delish! I’ve printed the recipe and I can’t wait to try it!



  35. Lydia on April 13, 2009 at 10:51 am

    herb-crusted steak was most appealing to me. thanks for the giveaway!



  36. chrissy on April 13, 2009 at 10:28 am

    I would be most likely to make the pitas, but they all sound great!



  37. Trixie on April 13, 2009 at 9:07 am

    Hello!

    Well, they all sound pretty tasty, but I’m planning to try the herb crusted steak. Yummmmy!

    herb crusted steak all the way!



  42. AnnMarie on April 12, 2009 at 8:02 pm

    Pitas, of course! I LOVE pitas. My DH would like the herb crusted steak however, and since we have a steak in the house that needs to be eaten, I have the feeling I’ll be trying that recipe first.



  43. Jennifer on April 12, 2009 at 12:16 pm

    The Mediterranean Beef Pitas look really great! Thanks for the giveaway!



  44. Carol S on April 12, 2009 at 11:57 am

    Mediterranean Beef Pitas would be on the top of the list for my family. Thanks for the chance.



  45. Tatyana on April 12, 2009 at 11:50 am

    mmm…..beef



  46. Rebecca on April 12, 2009 at 11:10 am

    We don’t even have any beef in the house currently, but those Mediterranean pitas look delightful. I can’t wait to make my own cucumber sauce.



  47. Michele C on April 11, 2009 at 10:10 pm

    The beef fajitas, yummmmmmmmy!!! Thank you for the great and generous giveaway.



  48. Fresh Girl on April 11, 2009 at 9:01 pm

    Oh, I’m all over those Beef Pitas! They sound divine!



  49. Lyn on April 11, 2009 at 8:45 pm

    Absolutely the Mediterranean Beef Pitas as I love Greek Food. Those look awesome. 🙂



  50. Maureen on April 11, 2009 at 8:02 pm

    The Roast with the almonds looks so good.



  51. Gayle on April 11, 2009 at 8:00 pm

    They all sound great but my first choice would be the beef pitas. Thank you.



  52. tink on April 11, 2009 at 7:22 pm

    The beef pita’s are going into the summer rotation at our house.

    waaaay yummy, and refreshing on a hot day.

    Thanks!



  53. Paula in NH on April 11, 2009 at 7:17 pm

    Definitely the Walnut Crusted Roast. With three of my favorite foods (walnuts, blue cheese and beef) what could be wrong with it? Nothing!



  54. MMW on April 11, 2009 at 6:16 pm

    The Mediterranean Pitas sound fantastic. I will have to make them soon!! Hard to choose they all look great!



  55. SANDY on April 11, 2009 at 6:12 pm

    Herb Crusted Steaks looks amazing.



  57. Barb Szyszkiewicz, sfo on April 11, 2009 at 5:57 pm

    Hands down, it’s the Herb Crusted Steaks!



  58. Heidi @ CarolinaDreamz on April 11, 2009 at 5:48 pm

    I choose the Med Pita’s full of yum and Hummus! 🙂



  59. Shellie Seering on April 11, 2009 at 4:04 pm

    I think the Mediterranean Beef Pitas look amazing!



  60. Kat @ The Burb Blog on April 11, 2009 at 4:02 pm

    I will most likely try all of the recipies at some point but the most delish sounding was Walnut Crusted Roast!



  61. JRae on April 11, 2009 at 1:26 pm

    The Mediterranean Pitas! 🙂



  62. Deborah R on April 11, 2009 at 1:10 pm


  63. Deborah R on April 11, 2009 at 1:07 pm

    I find the Herb Crusted Steaks most appealing. In fact, we’re grilling steaks for Easter and I think I’ll top them with your herb crust. Thanks!



  64. Becky Grady on April 11, 2009 at 1:05 pm

    The herb crusted steak looks delicious! Apparently everyone else thinks so too! 🙂 Thanks for the giveaway.

  67. Brooke on April 11, 2009 at 12:32 pm

    They all sounds wonderful.. Plus I just so happen to have Pita bread this week… However, I think the herb crusted steak would win over my family

    The herb-Crusted steaks are awesome looking. Great recipe.



  73. Jess on April 11, 2009 at 10:44 am

    Oh, I’m not sure I could choose – they all looked scrumptious. I love beef, it’s my favorite meat. Please, pick me!!



  74. Stephanie on April 11, 2009 at 10:16 am

    The herb crusted steaks have my mouth watering!



  75. mindy on April 11, 2009 at 10:08 am

    Mediterranean beef pitas thanks for the giveaway



  76. Kathie on April 11, 2009 at 9:56 am

    I am going to make the pitas. they look sooo yummy



  77. Princess Leia on April 11, 2009 at 8:57 am

    Definitely the pitas. The others look yummy as well, but I lived in the middle east for 18 months and _really_ miss the food there!



  78. Naomi on April 11, 2009 at 2:03 am

    I make something similar to the Herb Crusted Steaks, but use tenderloin. I just know my family would love this porterhouse recipe and I can’t wait to try it.



  79. Eileen on April 11, 2009 at 12:49 am

    WALNUT CRUSTED ROAST has my vote! My mouth actually started watering while I was reading the recipe! Yum!!

    Happy Easter!

    I loved the recipe for the “Walnut Crusted Roast” — we actually had that for dinner yesterday (the whole kit and caboodle – the mashed potatoes and salad as well) and everyone loved it!

  92. Cheryl W on April 10, 2009 at 6:39 pm

    I think the herb crusted steaks look great. I love peppercorn on my steaks. Thanks!



  93. Ron on April 10, 2009 at 5:48 pm

    Definitely the herb-crusted steaks, though you didn’t burn them enough for me (I know, it’s blasphemy).



  94. ALLY M on April 10, 2009 at 5:46 pm

    The Mediterranean Beef Pitas are what I found most appealing although the others look delicious as well. I know the Pitas would be a big hit at my house.



  95. Becca on April 10, 2009 at 5:20 pm

    You’ve been tweeted, twittered, twittered

  98. Reneé on April 10, 2009 at 4:17 pm

  99. Leigh on April 10, 2009 at 4:13 pm

    The herb crusted steaks get my vote!!! I will also be trying the mediterrean pitas, too, though….



  100. Jenna Z on April 10, 2009 at 3:57 pm

    The pitas and I’ll tell you why if you can keep a secret. Because I could substitute MorningStar Farms vegetarian steak strips in them! No one said a vegetarian couldn’t enter. 🙂 But the cookbook wouldn’t go to waste, my husband is a meat-eater!



  101. Just Mom on April 10, 2009 at 3:51 pm

    It’s the pitas, baby! They sounded great.



  102. Melanie Esqueda on April 10, 2009 at 3:41 pm


  103. Melanie Esqueda on April 10, 2009 at 3:37 pm

    All three look delicious!!! Woo hoo!



  104. Alexis on April 10, 2009 at 3:12 pm

    The herb crusted steaks sound super yummy!



  105. April on April 10, 2009 at 3:08 pm

    I think the walnut crusted roast looked most delicous. But we are making the herbed steaks next week. (We actually had steaks in the freezer — the roast will have to wait!)



  106. Julia on April 10, 2009 at 3:08 pm

    The pitas looked delish!



  107. Julie on April 10, 2009 at 2:31 pm

    Walnut Crusted Roast looks delicious!



  108. Rechelle on April 10, 2009 at 2:01 pm

    the Walnut Crusted Roast with the bleu cheese mashed potatoes is sheer genius- I plan on making this and the steaks very soon-



  109. bridgett on April 10, 2009 at 1:59 pm

    Mediterranean beef pitas, definitely. I have the ingredients for that, even, so there’s a good chance I’ll be making that in the next few days.



  110. silver on April 10, 2009 at 1:01 pm

    The herb crusted steak looks so tempting! But I’m more likely to make the pitas, as that’s the style of food my family tends to eat. Thanks for the great giveaway!



  111. Lorraine on April 10, 2009 at 12:23 pm

    I really liked the pita recipe! yummm



  112. Courtney on April 10, 2009 at 12:23 pm

    Thought they all looked great but the beef pitas made it onto my menu plan for next week.



  113. Megan on April 10, 2009 at 12:09 pm

    The Herb Crusted Steaks – DEFINATELY. I’m going to try those as soon as I find some steaks for a decent price. FYI, those roasted tomatoes? YUMMY. A great way to use the bounty of those tomato plants in the yard.



  114. Christopher on April 10, 2009 at 12:01 pm


  115. daniellecorrelle on April 10, 2009 at 12:00 pm

    Well, I’m a vegetarian so NONE of these particularly appealed to ME, haha. But, I do cook meat for my family and I did save the mediterranian pitas recipe to try out! :o)



  116. Brandy on April 10, 2009 at 11:59 am

    I like the Mediterranean beef pitas, please!



  117. Jessica on April 10, 2009 at 11:39 am

    I would love to enter this contest! As for my favorite recipe of the three, you had me at “walnut crusted,” and when the rest of the recipe title involves “bleu cheese mashed potatoes” – hello! Walnut Crusted Roast *totally* gets my vote for most appealing. 🙂



  118. rachel-asouthernfairytale on April 10, 2009 at 11:37 am

    Definitely the herb crusted steaks. Those sound amazing!!!



  119. Angela S on April 10, 2009 at 11:32 am

  121. Amanda @ Fake Ginger on April 10, 2009 at 11:23 am

    The walnut crusted roast sounded AMAZING!



  122. Ms. Booty Homemaker (aka Paige) on April 10, 2009 at 11:23 am

    They all sound good, but I am so making the pitas filled with Mediterranean beef!! Yum.



  123. julianne on April 10, 2009 at 11:06 am

    Walnut-crusted roast looks most enticing to me! Thanks for the giveaway!

  125. Becca on April 10, 2009 at 10:54 am

    As each recipe came up…..I liked it the best. So I will go with Herb crusted steak as this was my favorite by the end of the week. All the recipes truly looked amazing and yummy, though.

    With a family of 7 I can always use fresh ideas in the kitchen so i would be TICKLED to get my hands on one of those cookbooks!

    Thanks for the chance to win!



  126. Joyce on April 10, 2009 at 10:39 am

    The Mediterranean Beef Pitas are slated to be on our menu soon – they really looked good.



  127. Mrs. Petrie on April 10, 2009 at 10:14 am

    I liked the beef pitas. Mmm…maybe I can get my husband to make some for dinner. 🙂



  128. Cricket on April 10, 2009 at 10:07 am

    There’s no way I can pick just one…all three looked heavenly!!



  129. Susan on April 10, 2009 at 10:03 am

    Hi – you shared the Walnut Crusted Roast recipe this week w/ the Worcester Sauce on top.



  130. Angela on April 10, 2009 at 9:59 am

    I am so making this… It sounds so good, Mediterranean Beef Pitas



  131. Tara on April 10, 2009 at 9:58 am

    The Herb Crusted Steaks look delish- I can’t wait to try them out!



  132. Caanan on April 10, 2009 at 9:52 am

    The Herb Crusted Steaks looked the best (though all looked great). I’m going to have to try that one, just as soon as I get some steaks.
