This is a place I can organize recipes that my family has tried and likes. I did not make any of these recipes up myself - I am terrible in the kitchen and needed a place to help with my organization. Feel free to use this site and comment on the recipes you try!!

Zesty 3 Bean Salad

I got this one from Kraft Foods. I had some Northern Beans in my pantry and wanted to know what to do with them and here is what I found.

1 can (15.5 oz) great northern beans, rinsed, drained
1 can (15.5 oz) kidney beans, rinsed, drained
1 can (15 oz) black beans, rinsed, drained
1/2 cup chopped green pepper
1/2 cup chopped red pepper
1 cup Italian dressing

Mix all ingredients well except dressing in large bowl. Add dressing; toss to coat. Cover. Refrigerate several hours until chilled

My 2 cents worth on this:
  • This is yummy and it makes you want to eat bean.
  • Very easy
  • I didn't use red pepper and just used 1 cup of green pepper because it was cheaper and it still tasted great.

Chicken Tetrazzini

I got this one from a blog called the Happy Housewife. I was directed to this blog from my friend Kathy's blog.

1 box of noodles
2 cooked and chopped chicken breasts
1/2 cup shredded zucchini
1/2 cup shredded carrots
1/2 cup chopped onion
3 tablespoons butter
1 tablespoon minced garlic
1 can of chicken soup
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
salt and pepper to taste

While the noodles are boiling, melt butter on a low heat in a frying pan. Add garlic, onion, zucchini, and carrots. Saute for about 3 minutes. Add soup, sourcream, milk, cheese and chicken. Stir over low heat, until noodles are done boiling. Drain noodles and add to the mixture. Toss well and serve immediately.

My 2 cents worth on this:
  • We had large elbow noodles available and so I used those and they were great. However the picture had spaghetti noodles.
  • I did not use the carrots and it was still good.
  • This make a lot of food.
  • Yummy!
