"Tortillas to the Rescue" is a fantastic collection of both traditional styles of using tortillas, coupled with truly imaginative, fun, and yummy new ways to create dishes for all occasions with these versatile flatbreads! Not only were the recipes themselves great, but Jessica Harlan writes in an engaging way that makes you feel like you're sitting down with her in the kitchen, talking friend-to-friend.

I especially appreciated her directions in the back on how to make different styles of your own tortillas. Several members of my family are allergic to yeast, and this way we can ensure that there's no yeast or preservatives in our tortillas.

Other things to appreciate: Since my family tend to be "food adventurers" I really like that she adds ideas on variations in the recipes. Harlan also gives kid-friendly recipes and kid-friendly variations for more adult fare (those that are spicy or involve alcohol).

My only wish for "something more" was for photos showing the steps to make tortilla cups and bowls, and especially for "how to roll a burrito". Having rolled burros for *years*, I know it can be a bit more difficult to get the hang of it if you can't *see* the steps.

Harlan certainly has given me some new favorite recipes! Some (but by no means all) are Eggs in a Hole, Avocado and Leek Omelet Wrap, Shortcut Blintzes, Tortilla Soup, BLTA Tacos, Shrimp Po' Boy Wraps, Burger Pouches, Broccoli-Cheddar Quiche, Mushroom Tart, Fig and Goat Cheese Pinwheels, Ice Cream Sundaes in Coco Tortilla Bowls, Nutella (r) Quesadillas, Tortilla-Lime Bark, and Cream Filled Cardamon Tortilla Bites. Everything from Appetizers, Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner, Snacks, to Dessert!!

Highly recommend this!! Fun for nearly anyone who has ever been in the kitchen, and I think especially useful for busy cooks and parents looking for easy, interesting ideas to feed their kids. Makes a great gift, too!! (I've got some of *my* Christmas shopping done now!!)

Tortillas to the Rescue is a well but together guide to help you incorporate the tortilla into your family's meals even if they aren't fans of traditional Mexican recipes. Ms. Harlan introduces readers to a ton of unique ways to use what seems to be such a plain little bread product. If you aren't familiar with tortillas, the book has a nice introduction to discuss the background, nutrition and storage of tortillas. The book also has several ideas on how to warm up a tortilla. I always just wrap in foil and throw in the oven but I think I am going to try grilling them next time.

The cookbook is divided into meal type so you have basic categories like breakfast, starters, and snacks but there are also a couple of unique chapters I would not have considered. There is a soup section where the author teaches you how to make tortilla strips to put on top of your soup and a whole chapter dedicated to meatless main dishes. Since I am trying to find some unique vegetarian meals this was a big hit with me. The other chapter that I was really drawn to was the desert chapter. I have never considered using tortilla as a desert ingredient but they sound simple and incredibly tasty!

There is a nice balance of recipes in this cookbook. Some have a traditional Mexican flair to them but others (like the hamburger wraps, yum!) are classic American with a twist. Some have a few more ingredients than others but they are all pretty simple and straightforward. If I could change anything about this cookbook it would be to add pictures. I always prefer cookbooks with pictures so I know what my recipe should look like! Overall, though, I loved this cookbook and will be stocking up on tortillas now that I have been inspired!

Disclaimer: I was provided one copy of this cookbook at no charge to facilitate my review however all opinions are my own.

This is a wonderful addition to Ramen to the Rescue. Between the two books, there are a plenitude of easy weeknight meals. Recently, I made the burrito casserole and the broccoli chicken casserole. My picky children loved both meals- not an easy feat! I especially enjoyed the broccoli chicken casserole because it entailed using tortillas in a way that I had not thought of before. I look forward to trying many more recipes.

Tortillas are flatbreads that are amazingly versatile. I had no idea there were so many ways you can use tortillas.

After reading Jessica's book , it is easy to see how you can replace your loaf of bread with tortillas. She explains how to store them and the different types of tortillas you can purchase.

Let me give you a few examples from her book:

FOR BREAKFAST: egg and sausage roll- up, avocado and leek omelet wrap, and tortilla crusted French toast.

FOR SNACK OR APPETIZER: spinach and cheese empanadas, baked wontons with sweet and sour dipping sauce, and spiked gazpacho dip with seasoned tortillas.

FOR A LUNCH: grilled stacker (like a panini), chili dog wraps, and shrimp po' boy wraps

FOR MAIN COURSE: chicken and bell pepper fajitas, grilled fish tacos, and grilled salmon tostados with avocado sauce.

She also had meatless entrees.

FOR DESSERT: Nutella quesadillas, apple cinnamon tortilla pockets, and Mexican cannoli

So many choices and they all sounded delicious. I am sure your family will enjoy choosing and making recipes from Jessica's book. Maybe you will create your own recipes too.

Bon Appetito!
