Don't pay up to $1 per can for black beans when you can make them yourself for pennies! These tasty beans work great in Santa Fe style recipes or as a substitute for refried beans. Tested at high altitude.
Prep time includes pre-bake refrigeration. Wonderful, delicious recipe for the holidays. My family has enjoyed this many times. Reproduced (with personalizations) from the original Kraft recipe, which can be found on the kraftfoods.com website. I can't wait to try this with some of the flavored Triscuit varieties! No adjustments needed for high altitude.
Easy crock pot recipe that requires a bit of prep but turns out delicious! I created this as an alternative to similar recipes that call for a bottle of Italian dressing, because I prefer to control the ingredients in my recipes. (Does anyone really want to ingest xanthan gum?) Shred the leftovers and use them in all manner of Italian and Mexican dishes! Notes: This recipe requires a large crock pot (I use a 6-qt one). Can be cooked from frozen but doesn't absorb the Italian seasoning as well (because seasonings must be sprinkled atop the skin), and may be difficult to get the lid on the crock pot tightly.
This family pleasing recipe is hearty and easy to make. Savory flavors of chicken, rice and spices meld in a creamy parmesan sauce. Yet it takes only minutes to prepare! This is my own, original recipe. Tested at high altitude.
Turkey, fettucine and broccoli in a subtly flavored sauce. High-altitude tested. This is my own recipe, created as an alternative to pasta recipes with heavy sauces. NOTES: Prep time assumes you have cooked, shredded (or diced) turkey breast on hand. Deli-style turkey breast is not an acceptable substitute in this recipe. Cooked, shredded chicken breast may be substituted. Canned, drained chicken breast probably also would work.
