New Recipe Cards

Christmas Eve we had planned to have 14 people over for dinner but we had our first white Christmas since 1926 and the roads were not safe to travel. I still cooked the food since it would spoil if I didn't and now we have lots of frozen leftovers for those nights when I just don't feel like cooking :)

Here are my new recipe cards. Three are going straight to the store and two you get for free! Get them now if you are collecting them because I'll move them to the store in about a week.


My first card is an appetizer. I make it often and it is so good. Even kids like it. They are so easy to make and taste like mini pizza!

This was the first time I made this Chicken Parmesan. It was a little more complicated than what I would normally make but it was so worth it. We've been eating the leftovers for two days now and it's just as good leftover as it was right out of the oven. I make the chicken and didn't put the sauce on top so we have had the chicken cut up in salad and on the leftover garlic bread as a sandwich. So good!

Of course no meal is complete without dessert! This one can be made so healthy and you don;t know it. It calls for brownies which I make with applesauce instead of oil and then I use fat-free, sugar free pudding, low fat cream cheese, skim milk and splenda. You will be amazed at how great this trifle tastes with all those low-call ingredients! It's my own concoction and we love it!

Now for your free cards.

An appetizer that is quick and easy to make. I spread it pretty thinly on 4 tortillas but if you want a lot of filling you have to double the filling in the recipe. Another tip: don't spread the filling al the way to the edges on the tortilla, just make a rectangle in the middle so that when you roll it up yo can cut off the round ends and have pretty spirals.

Manicotti is one of my favorites but I don't make it often because it is time consuming to stuff all those shells. The shells are easier to stuff if they are not cooked but if you precook the shells it speeds up the cooking time. This dish freezes really well so I almost always double the recipe and freeze a pan for later.
