There was a lot to choose from in this book. I made Cheesey BBQ Sloppy Joes, which is barbecue beef served on garlic bread with cheddar cheese.
I liked it, but the girls hated the diced tomatoes in it. However, they absolutely loved the Chicken Parmesan Pizza, which was pizza sauce, chicken tenders from the deli and cheese on garlic bread loaf. I really enjoyed it too.
For a great amount of variety for many different palates and occasions, check this cookbook out.
