    Thanks for sharing about this app. I just recently got an Ipod touch and love it!! Always looking for new apps to try. I think the grilled shrimp and corn sounds good!

    Definitely want to try the Chicken Enchilada recipe. I'm such a wimp with Mexican recipes … prepackaged taco meals and canned refried beans is about as close as I've come. Well, every now and then I do make some fajitas from scratch. But, what can you expect from someone from PA, right?! Thanks for the heads up, Brandie!
