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!!

Catalina Chicken Stir Fry

I got this one from Kraft Foods!!

1/2 cup Catalina Dressing
3 Tbsp soy sauce
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1 lb boneless skinless chicken breast cut into bitesize pieces
1 pkg frozen mixed veggies, thawed, drained
4 cups hot cooked white rice

Mix dressing, soy sauce, and garlic powder in large skillet until well blended. Add chicken, mix lightly. Cook and stir on med-high heat for 5 minutes or until chicken is cooked thru.

Add mixed veggies; cover/ Reduce heat to med-low. Simmer 5 to 7 minutes or until veggies are crisp-tender, stirring frequently.

Serve over the rice.

My 2 cents worth on this:
  • I am not a fan of Catalina dressing except in Taco Salad. However, that is why I had it in the house and since I had all the ingredients in the house is why I tried this. This was yummy.
  • It does have a little kick. Not necessarily spice. Just kick.
  • I had to modify a little. I used frozen fajita chicken and fresh copped veggies but it still worked out great.
  • I could definitely do this again for a stir fry night!

Turkey Tetrazzini

I got this from the Hormel website.

1 17 oz package Hormel refrigerated sliced turkey with gravy, prepared and chopped
1 9 oz package spaghetti
1 10 oz container Alfredo sauce
1 2 oz jar sliced pimentos; drained
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese

Prepare past as directed on package

Meanwhile, in saucepan, heat alfredo sauce, turkey with gravy, pimentos and cheddar cheese. Stir in pasta.

Place mixture into lightly greased caserole dish and sprinkle with parmesan cheese

Bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes or until warmed through.

My 2 cents worth on this:
  • Yummy!
  • I did not use pimentos and it was still great.
  • I did not measure the parmesan cheese and just sprinkled until my heart desired and it was great!
  • Chris loved it and Hannah ate it up saying it was "kinda like spaghetti."
