New Recipes!

Well since the last time we've talked I put away that huge pile of laundry, washed dishes about twelve times, made breakfast, watered the garden and pulled a few weeds. And yet, I'm still wearing my nightgown. I just added shorts and a bra, and wahhlaaaa it's a neighbor friendly outfit. (Lucky for me no one was out while I was out there!)

So you all know how much I love the Kraft Foods website. Although they really need to come up with some more new stuff. I think I've made most of the "easy", "budget" and "healthy" (but not gross looking) recipes on there.

This week I tried a few newer ones.

Sun-Dried Tomato Chicken

This recipe turned out really good. I used extra tomatoes to use up some from my garden and my neighbor's garden. I did however learn a good lesson. If you cook bacon and then are going to add chicken to it? You should turn the heat down. Otherwise it pops all over and my arm now looks like this.

That's two burns and a cat scratch on my wrist (stupid cat). Nice and classy looking.

Beef & Vegetable Noodle Bowl

What I neglected to notice about this recipe is that is says TWO servings. Why do they even make recipes for TWO servings? Luckily for me I had enough to multiply that by four so we'd actually have enough for everyone to eat.

I couldn't find the "light Asian toasted sesame dressing" so I used an Asian salad dressing I already had. Everything was going good until it came time to add the "hoisin sauce". I didn't add as much as it said because I didn't like the way it smelled. I ended up not liking the recipe because all I could taste was that stuff. My husband and son both liked it though so go figure.

Weeknight Lasagna Toss

This was really good. It says to break the lasagna into 4 pieces. I think if I made it again I'd break it into like 10. That was the only thing I didn't like about it (the lasagna pieces being too big).

Have you tried any new recipes lately?Pin It

Julie, does your family like soup? I have a recipe for a really easy white chicken chili and it makes a lot! Let me know if you'd like the recipe!

Bummer about the burn and cat scratches.
