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!!

Un-fried French Fries

I got this one from Kraft Foods!!

1.5 pounds baking potatoes
1/4 cup Italian Dressing
1/4 cup Parmesan Grated Topping

Preheat over to 425. Wash potatoes; pat dry with paper towels. Cut into 1/4 inch thick strips; transfer to large bowl. Add dressing and grated topping; toss well.
Arrange potatoes in single layer on large baking sheet sprayed with cooking spray. Spray potatoes with cooking spray.
Bake 12 minutes. Turn potatoes over. Continue baking 10 to 12 minutes or until golden brown.

My 2 cents worth on this:
  • It was hard to turn the potatoes over. I think next time I will just cut them in chunks instead.
  • Yummy and an easy, different, and new way to have potatoes.

Bruschetta Chicken Bake

I got this one from Kraft Foods.

1 can diced tomatoes, undrained
1 pkg stuffing mix for chicken
1/2 cup water
2 cloves garlic, minced
1.5 lbs boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into bite size pieces
1 tsp dried basil leaves
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

Preheat oven to 400. Place tomatoes in medium bowl. Add stuffing mix, water, and garlic; stir just until stuffing mix is moistened. Set aside. Place chicken in 13x9 inch or other 3 quart baking dish; sprinkle with basil and cheese. Top with stuffing mixture. Bake 30 minutes or until chicken is cooked thru.

My 2 cents worth on this:
  • Honestly, this was none of our favorites but it was something different.
  • AND, I was a little distracted when I did it the first time so we definitely wanted to try it again.
  • I think I used too little cheese the first time.
